I have avoided seeing this movie because I suspect that GUEST is right, but I would still like GUEST to put on a moniker and please explain why that is his or her opinion.

I've been following the reports from the on the scene reporters for NPR and BBC, and to a lesser extent the columns by Friedman in the NYT.

My attitude to the war is that there is justification for it, but that it has been poorly presented to the public, and poorly strategized. I think PM Blair has been most eloquent and convincing, Bush has lesser skills in this area. The overall tactics of the militaries have been quite good, yet they are now dealing with a violent insurgency using police procedures, so are at a self-inflicted handicap, mainly to preserve civilian lives.
