    I'm assuming this will be an animated feature where the world is saved by six, talking fur seals.

    Yeah, I think that'd be cool. Six bad ass seals, smoking cigars and running riot. Starts off with a bar scene... Like Sharks Tale with seals.

    Seal The Deal or something...

    I still think it's just unbelievable garbage.

    This quote is worth repeating:

    the amateur historian Bob Atchison said that Anastasia was akin to someone making a film in which "Anne Frank moves to Orlando and opens a crocodile farm with a guy named Mort."

    Perhaps it is an idea to get it in perspective. In Vietnam small groups of Australian soldiers would go into the jungle for weeks at a time and capture or kill Vietcong leaders, but mostly kill. And today we do the same thing in Afganistan. We have units dedicated to capturing or killing Taliban leaders. So the killing of Bin Laden was business as usual. And it is important to say, this is the business of war. So the killing of Bin Laden was another act of war.

    I was just pointing it out... You can remain mad at Disney for Pocahontas, though.

    One man's opinion. Fortunately, his ideals are not shared by most.

    Actually, I don't think that is such a rare opinion on this side of the Atlantic. If you consider the death penealty to be immoral, as Europeans tend to do, you believe in the right to a fair trial for absolutely everybody, as we tend to, and you assume that the war on terror is no real war in the stricter sense of the concept, it was simply an assasination. Nobody sheds a tear for him, don't get me wrong. But I think many Europeans are a bit ambivalent about the ethics of all this.
