I don't usually like to watch a film twice, but I would see this one again in a heartbeat.
For the past several years I have been a huge supporter of the "war on terror" and the policies of the Bush administration. I watch Fox News daily and listen to O'Reilly, Hannity, and Glenn Beck everyday on the radio.
I have no intention of changing my political leanings or favorites any time soon. However, this book opened my eyes to many issues and perspectives that I had never considered.
This book is a "light read" but very informative and engaging.
This is a timely, well written, clever approach to where the global war on terrorism came from and is headed unless we change directions in a positive and proactive manner.
The interviews the author collects along his journey are thought-provoking. Spurlock raises serious questions as to why we in America don't hear more from those who would truly like to work with the United States to bring about a peaceful resolution of those challenges we face than we do from those whose mantra has thus far proven a calamity of immense proportions.
A soundly written, well researched, oblique approach to where in the world the Global War on Terrorism is headed unless we seek the answers we may not like to hear, and enact new policies and adopt new attitudes in order to bring this particular global war to a meaningful and honorable end.
The final chapter of this book is the most powerful and the most human. In and of itself it reveals how important good choices and right priorities are in this life.
The facts are these: OBL has not been found, Al Qaeda is still strong and probably growing, the war on terror is not working, and current policies are not effective. Sowing more discord throughout an already troubled region is not going to help any of us now or in the long run.
This is not as strong as some of Spurlock's previous work, but it is worth a look for its relevant subject matter.
This is a book which presents the present-day socio-political climate without resorting to any jargon. It is one man's attempt to understand how the world has become such a dangerous place in the space of a few decades, and his resulting narrative is also an impassioned appeal for humanizing the enemy, for improving the quality of life of millions of people who struggle just to put food on their tables every day, and the need to use the modern communications we have at our disposal to educate people all over the world. A must read for anybody; I am not a current-affairs buff, but even I enjoyed Mr. Spurlock's reasonable tone, his genuine effort to stay open-minded, and his honest attempt at looking at the world through the eyes of people driven to the extreme, who have gone off the deep end, and resorted to murder and mayhem in order to achieve their objectives.
