Because I'm sure the noble writer preferred living under the tyranny of people who had no problem throwing dissidents into wood chippers.

Simply brilliant!!! I think you should enter it into a few film festivals.

This is a fine film, sir. I am a regular at machinima premiere (mprem.com) and I'll certainly spread the word. I'm reminded of the film "the French Democracy" that came out last year. Your film would make a good companion piece. "Unfair War" is a better film technically because the Sims2 tools are better. Congratulations on an excellent production. And I echo Tari's point about entering it into some festivals. Try the machinima.org fest in Oct. Paul Mariono puts it together.

good luck

Fact is that the other side are the ones who are continuing this war. Whether or not you agree with America's decision to go to war, you have to concede the fact that it is not America that wants the conflict to continue.

There are people in this conflict you should be more concerned about that Americans. People who value death more than life, whether it's there own lives or the lives of others. They believe that dying while trying to kill people not of their religion is a guaranteed trip to a paradise in the afterlife, regardless of whatever wrongs they committed in their lives. These are the kinds of people who would murder thousands of "unbelievers" even if the chance for world peace were staring them in the face, because for them any peace arrived through any means other than through total suppression of individual rights is a wrongful peace.

This is the enemy that America is facing right now. Radical Islam is a much greater threat than America can ever be. I remind everyone to remember what happened after the infamous Danish cartoons were published. Can anyone honestly tell me that these people don't want to impose their oppressive cultural taboos upon the rest of us? Imagine what would happen if they do take over the world.

Perhaps the next video clip could be on that topic.
