United 93 And The Call For One Nation United Against The Terrorist Organization Behind 9/11

A few days ago I took my son to see the movie "United 93" in the theaters. I don't frequent theaters much any more. In my opinion the price of the ticket is far too high, and the price of popcorn and a soda (for some reason I can't watch a movie without popcorn and a coke, perhaps it was all of those subliminal messages flashed at me on the drive-in movie screens earlier in my youth) is outrageously high. So, I usually just rent the movies I want to see and watch them at home where a pause button is handy and the price of popcorn isn't so steep.

However, every once in a while a film comes out that just demands to be experienced in the environment of a movie theater. "United 93" was just such a film. Let me tell you, it was well worth the price of the ticket. Heck, I don't even feel so bad about throwing so much of my money away on the popcorn and coke.

Despite what the weak-minded people who cried: "it's too soon" upon annoucement of its return, it is definatley not too soon for these brave Americans' story to be told. In fact, if any thing, it could have been told sooner.

I'm not a movie critic, and I'm not pretending to be one here, but, here is my take on the film.
From the beginning of the action, you can pretty much count on remaining at the edge of your seat. The fact that we all know what happened on that infamous day doesn't ruin the experience at all.

The movie doesn't just focuse soley on United Flight 93 and her crew, passengers, and the terrorists, but actually unfolds the days events as they happen, jumping back and forth between the Flight 93 expericence and the other 9/11 events as they unfolded. So, you get the full 9/11 experience.

Thankfully, this the director of this film has done a good job of capturing what happened that day as it was, "un-sugar coated". Absent from this film is any of the usual liberal, Hollwood left's sanctimonious propaganda. The terrorists aren't presented in this film as victims of the evil, capitalistic agenda of the government of America who understandingly did what they did. They are presented in all of their fanatical, violent evilness. I would have walked out of the theater if it had been the typical claptrap coming out of Hollywood, or from traitorous jerks like Michael Moore.

The film does an excellent job of conveying the enormous task that the air traffic controllers faced on that day. It shows the confusion that they, we all felt as the days events unfolded. It also highlights the broken chains of communication between the FAA and the military, as well as the military's inability to determine what the rules of engagment were as far as taking down hijacked flights before they struck their targets

I think it is safe to say that any American who sees this film and walks out not being pissed off and upset deserves his or her patriotism questioned.

We've all been exposed to the liberals who, after making a number of anti-American statements, and then huff, "don't you dare question my patriotism!", because they want the rest of us to swallow the idea that being anti-American is somehown the American way. They may have gotten away with it so far, but no pass is extended upon exiting the movie theaters after watching this movie, that is, assuming they will even bother to see it.

Those who think it is too soon to remember are the ones who want us to keep our eyes covered and pretend nothing ever happened. These fools are the ones who only recognize their peril after it is too late, and the scimitar blade is at their throats. I think it is best to ignore them and remember what happened.

Also, there is something really unique here. The first response to the blood thirsty, demon possed Islamo-Fascist terroist wasn't delivered by the military, but rather, by regular American citizens aboard United Airlines Flight 93. These people are true heroes. Not only do they deserve recognition for their bravery and selflessness when it came to protecting their country, they deserve the support of true Americans to ignore the "it's too soon" liberal, appeasement crowd and go experience this film.

God bless America and God bless those Americans who refuse to listen to the liberal claptrap and choose to remember 9/11 and those heroes aboard United Airlines Flight 93. Shame on the disgusting, liberal, anti-American, appeasers who want us to believe that it is, "too soon". The day people of this mind-set leave our great country couldn't be soon enough!
