The film compares the rise of the neoconservative movement in the United States and the radical Islamist movement, drawing comparisons between their origins, and remarking on similarities between the two groups. More controversially, it argues that radical Islamism as a massive, sinister organisation, specifically in the form of al-Qaeda, is a myth, or noble lie, perpetuated by leaders of many countries—and particularly neoconservatives in the U.S.—in a renewed attempt to unite and inspire their people after the ultimate failure of more utopian ideas.
The Power of Nightmares was praised by film critics in Britain and the United States. Its message and content have also been the subject of various critiques and criticisms from conservatives and progressives.

My problem is:
- they are funded by our tax $$$$$
- they still exist via Western interest and agenda
- they are f*king stupid and moronic, degraded excuses of human beings
- I'm sick of hearing about them and reminded they exist on the same planet I do
- Obama loves them and not Americans
Last one was for emotion charge, relax
It's all for political interests. How can we hate the bomber but not those funding, organizing and orchastrating the bombers?
It's like hating Frankenstein but being neutral to Victor. Frankenstein is dumb and useless, would never exist if it weren't for the doctor.

So, ISIS attacked Paris. Crowded city, with many immigrants already there.
ISIS has done next to nothing "official" to the United States. But, they paint a huge target on DC.
Interesting. Might as well go after Mount Rushmore.
Here's my problem with everything since 9/11.
I truly have a hard time accepting the choice of targets. A bastion of white collar america? The Pentagon? And now ISIS is threatening DC?
If they were bank robbers, they'd be going after Ft Knox based off of their choice and methodology.
If TERROR is the goal....strike the heart. Make Americans AFRAID.
Small Town USA.
Multiple coordinated targets.
I guess the US should simply be glad I'm not sitting in on any of the "terrorist" planning meetings.
I give them a C- for effort.
