I think it's not supposed to be funny. I think the creator of this wanted to express how sensless he thinks Bush's politics are. But I think this shouldn't be compared to TTT because TTT is totally different form the situation of the 11th September

I think it could be really offensive - how could some one compare a work of fiction with the death of 2000 (or something like that) real life peeps. Horrible

I think it's harmless. Music is alright, quality could be better. :-D
But I also think peoples opinions are bound to where they are from. I can understand American or Middle-East people think this is very offensive. Where I come from, people like to provoke. Not just towards other cultures, but also to ourselves. I wouldn't be surprised if this was European-made. If not, this could be ment offensive, that's a bad thing ofcourse.

I thought it was pretty dumb in general, even if it wasn't meant to be funny. I just don't care for politics in the first place.

[font=Arial, sans-serif] I agree with vikingmaiden. It's flat out stupid. The maker should've known that it was going to more offensive than funny. And it's not even funny. Blah. [/font]

What do they mean by forces of Allah?. And this sentence " to murder the innocent people". This jerks are not forces of Allah(same as God). They believe in nothing. It is not a matter of God. You guys really pissed me off this time. You think it is funny to kill the innocent people. Whoever did this must be insane. It is wrong to do such stupid things. Too offensive.

Stupidness. Whoever did this.. pointing a finger at them would be just as offensive as this movie was.

words can not express how disgusting that is and how strongly i feel about that (well they can but those words are not allowed on here)
what kind of person could think of doing something as sick and idiotic as that? TTT is a work of fiction written decades ago! its a classic novel and 9/11 was a terrible tragedy, so mixing the two like that is horrid.

I agree with Aranel that mixing TTT and 9/11 is horrid. And who made that is an idiot!

thanks everyone for you commment so far, i think that it is quite clear that it is not good idea, and the person who made it is clearly not thinking of the consequences this movie can have on people. Either that or he did and has a sick mind.

this is not true, this can be offensive to anyone, from any country of this world, as you know 9/11 affected the whole world, and someone somewhere had lost someone close to them, alot of nationalities were either working in them buildings, or were on the planes, so this movie would cause offence to anyone around the globe, not just americans and Middle-east people. i'm british and i know someone who has lost someone in that attack.

I'm not sure this is the place to discuss political things, but fair enough. Don't you agree that there is a little bit more going on between American and British people then with the 'rest of europe'? You might remember the affair with the Denish comics. America and GB were like: "Eek!" We (rest of europe) gniffled and took no further action. Alright, there was a note: "We're sorry you think that was offensive." Come on! Don't you agree that was hilarious? Off the record; I love your country and I wish I could visit it more often!

I myself was in an airplane 9/11. When we landed the whole airport was emptied. Ofcourse things changed. And ofcourse the disaster was terrible! But that has nothing to do with the whole circus around it. If I would feel offended personally by movies like these, what life would I have? That's excacly what the terrorists want. Us to be afraid.
