Michael Moore aides the Bush Doctrine?

Interesting post from Daimnation! titled Unintended Consequences regarding Iran and Fahrenheit 9/11. A past example being a Soviet propaganda film which showed the misery and violence of America, however, audiences noticed that even the poorest Americans had their own cars, apartments, television sets, and based on their size, had too much to eat.

A similar thing is happening in Iran, where Fahrenheit 9/11 has been approved by Iranian officials for viewing. Notice this comment from a younger, twenty something viewer:

"It sure is a great country, where someone like Moore trashes the president and gets away with it -- and makes so much money!"

Or how about this one:

Another woman said she was impressed with the scene where Moore chases US congressmen to ask them if they would send their children to Iraq.

"How many top officials here sent their offspring to fight in the Iran-Iraq war?" asked the woman, one of several who directed their frustrations at Iranian authorities -- and not President Bush.
