one of the most important books to read considering that these soldiers put their lives in danger for misguided purposes of this war that has no end in sight This war affectswomen and men and their families than the government is willing to allow The letters are sad, disturbing and poignant This book was published almost 10 years ago, so I m sure some of its power has been lost over that time I like the concept behind the book Moore got a lot of crap about being too liberal or insensitive, but in this book he allows soldiers and their families to do the talking for him Many of the points they make are valid, especially through the lens of time For example, they talk about the lack of evidence for going to war and how the cost is going to bankrupt the US.I have some serious prob This book was published almost 10 years ago, so I m sure some of its power has been lost over that time I like the concept behind the book Moore got a lot of crap about being too liberal or insensitive, but in this book he allows soldiers and their families to do the talking for him Many of the points they make are valid, especially through the lens of time For example, they talk about the lack of evidence for going to war and how the cost is going to bankrupt the US.I have some serious problems with the book, however It is obviously very selectively edited, with Moore choosing to publish only the letters that show his point of view Also, after a while, many of those points get a little over done I don t mean to belittle the sacrifice of the soldiers and their families, but you only need to have so many letters saying the recruiters lied to me and Bush doesn t care about us to start thinking ok I get it lets move on Another thing that bothers me about this book is that it is essentially designed for the purpose of stroking Moore s ego Most of the letters talk about his various books and movies and how great they are People thank Moore for being a patriot and doing what he is doing I agree that Moore s contributions to the war time discussion were important, but he could have edited this book in such a way as to not come off so arrogantly A collection of emails from the front line1 April 2012 Sometimes it is difficult to understand Michael Moore s motivations I used to think that he was a wonderful champion of the left, however as you begin to dig deeper you quickly discover that he is not necessarily a champion of the left, but rather a champion of himself He has his own motives and own agenda, and in a way, seems to be using the poor and disadvantaged of America to fuel his own publicity His movies and his books are good, ch A collection of emails from the front line1 April 2012 Sometimes it is difficult to understand Michael Moore s motivations I used to think that he was a wonderful champion of the left, however as you begin to dig deeper you quickly discover that he is not necessarily a champion of the left, but rather a champion of himself He has his own motives and own agenda, and in a way, seems to be using the poor and disadvantaged of America to fuel his own publicity His movies and his books are good, challenging, and confronting, however in many cases they seem to fuel his own promotion than to really do anything constructive This book is a collection of emails that were received from soldiers stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan and helps us understand these wars from their point of view It is a first hand look at what it is to be a modern soldier in a modern war Okay, Moore is against deployment in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and in a way I agree with him While these wars have been promoted as an humanitarian mission, they have not turned out to be the case The United States occupied both countries, though in the initial invasion there was actually little to no resistance The problems arose immediately after the invasions, notably in Iraq when the collapse of Sadam s government brought about widespread looting It has been a while since I read this book, and I am a little dubious about the authenticity of some of these emails, however I am doubtful that they are purely a product of Moore s imagination I suspect that they are real emails from real soldiers on the ground The contents of many of them paint a picture of members of a occupying force being used by the commanders in Washington to secure their own goals The real idea of Iraq was to create a Western paradise in the Middle East with access to oil Not only that but the corporations were supposed to come in and set themselves up In a way the Iraqis would go to sleep one night under Sadam and wake up in modern, corporate, Bagdad However that never happened the insurgency got in the way It is difficult to know the extent of what it is like to be in the US army It is suggested that the pay is low and the benefits are non existent The contracts that went to the corporations this was truly a mercenary war as while the army did a bulk of the work, many of the auxiliary duties went to private corporations, and many of the corporations syphoned huge amounts of money from the government in many cases were no bid contract which were given to companies in which the government had interests Halliburton These companies would then abuse those contracts to no end Private security contractors where then hired to protect those corporate interests However, in some of the anti Moore documentaries that float around we suddenly discover that many of the soldiers that he had interviewed turned out to have different opinions of the war and the government than what Moore portrayed Moore is trying to make a point, but unfortunately he is sinking to the level of those he is attacking by using their own methods and tactics Tactics such as clever editing and control of information However, the difference is that in the United States the corporations control the airwaves, and people like Moore and others tend to be denied a public speaking space In the end it is not necessarily true, Moore still packed auditoriums, as does Chomsky and Zinn While there are many criticisms of the Bush regime, the US government has yet to go down to road of violently suppressing and silencing the critics I really liked the book I think It was interesting to see the other side of the story The story of American soldiers and their families who didn t want to participate in the war, and who actually feel guilty about killing innocent people.It amazed me to understand that most of the American army are young boys and girls who volunteer only to get a college education, and have no relation what so ever with wars, or what s happening in Iraq and Afghanistan They don t want ot be part of any thing I really liked the book I think It was

happening in Iraq and Afghanistan They don t want ot be part of any thing what so ever.I also felt that the American government fooled them, just like it did for the rest of the world.I just hope that we don t do the same mistake that they did to us I mean, after 9 11, almost every Arab and Muslim were considered a terrorist, and that s not a bit true Now after reading the book, I now wish that after those photos from ABu Gharib prison, and related stuff, we don t think of all the Americans as murderers I listened to the unabridged 5CD version of the audiobook.This is a book of it s time, which is definitely not when I listened to it Obviously meant to sway the 2004 election, it consists of letters sent to Michael Moore from various people associated with the military saying Bush the war is wrong and he is right It is self serving to say the least But many of the letters are poignant and ring true, even well after the fact The only problem is there are way too many of them The

book I found it at the dollar store, but it would have been worth the full price, definitely It is full of letters from soldiers stationed in Iraq who write to Michael Moore to tell him that they appreciate his efforts on their behalf Not all of them completely agree with him, and it is cool to see that he printed some of those letters, too A great perspective on our current war, at least for someone who does not totally or at all, really support this war. Very much a flashback to 10 years ago Very sad that in some ways it still feels like current events This book had been sitting in a box for 10 years Finally read it and realize that Moore was way ahead of the curve. Again, cannot believe I read this in 7th grade Amazing, again Nothing short of Michael Moore s brilliance It s a bunch of letters from soldiers and yeah, maybe I used to cry to them and returned the book to the library entirely ruined, maybe. This is a must read, although you may get emotional, both heart broken and angry as you hear the words from those whose lives on on the line. My husband bought this book when it first came out and, despite my admiration for Michael Moore s work, I had not read it up until now This is not Moore s work, per se, but a compendium of the e mails he received after Fahrenheit 9 11 Service members and their loved ones write eloquently of what we now all know to be the truth the dishonesty of the Bush administration that resulted in an unwarranted invasion of a sovereign nation.Having seen my husband s 20 year old nephew discharged from t My husband bought this book when it first came out and, despite my admiration for Michael Moore s work, I had not read it up until now This is not Moore s work, per se, but a compendium of the e mails he received after Fahrenheit 9 11 Service members and their loved ones write eloquently of what we now all know to be the truth the dishonesty of the Bush administration that resulted in an unwarranted invasion of a sovereign nation.Having seen my husband s 20 year old nephew discharged from the Marines after two tours in Fallujah with 100 percent disability rating due to PTSD I know that the Bush administration s lies cause real harm to naive young people I spent a good deal of last year in a state of panic when I learned that someone inestimably dear to me was in Baghdad, and didn t rest easily until he was safely home.As I read these letters, I could not help wondering how many of the authors, or the authors loved ones, made it home safely from this bungle
