Up till now I thought BW may be a semi-intelligent guy. Mainly cause he knew to stick to acting and not bug me with his "veiw" of the world.

Thanks Bruce, now give us your take on free trade and GE food.

Personally, I can't wait.

Oh, let him...if every other celebrity is doing it (especially from one side of the political spectrum), then why not (from the other side). Other than criticizing the media and Saddam, he's there in Iraq to support the troops and that's admirable.

Now go make a decent movie, Bruce, it's been a while! Big grin

The U.S. Government already has a $25 million bounty on his head. What difference is an extra million?

Why not an extra million? That's 26 million instead of 25 million. You can do a lot with a million dollars, even in terms of 25 or 26.

Yea, granted, a million bucks is alot of money. But if someone had the knowledge and ability to turn Saddam in, but wasn't convinced to accept the $25M bounty, would they sucker up and turn him in now that they're being offered $26M?

Hmm, that reminds me of a certain episode of The Simpsons that aired recently - anyone heard of Missionary: Impossible

What an asshole he is, Mr. Willis. If he's so intent on getting rid of Saddam, have him stay in Iraq. That way he can spare us another of his over-done, under-acted movies.

I'm ashamed of myself...I only vaguely remember that "Simpsons" episode!
