Bruce Willis

http://www.nationalledger.com/artman...27261601.shtml

Actor Bruce Willis has offered $1 million to anyone who turns in al-Qaeda terror leaders. The patriotic Die Hard star will pay out for information on the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden, Aymen Al-Zawahiri or Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, the alleged brains behind the 9/11 atrocity.

Willis announced his reward on US TV show “Rita Cosby: Live And Direct,” where he also slammed biased media coverage of the Iraq war. He said, “I am baffled to understand why the things that I saw happening in Iraq, really good things happening in Iraq, are not being reported on.”

so are we to take Bruce Willis seriously ... yet laugh in the face of Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins, Barbara Streisand, Martin Sheen, etc.

i'm smelling Right Wing Hipocrasy -- bash Hollywood, unless they're saying what you want to hear.

Maybe we can just merge it with the other "Hollywood idiots" thread.

The difference is that Bruce is offering his own money. Tim Robbins and Co. pontificate but actually do very little, certainly nothing that actually requires any self sacrifice on their part.

Kudos to Bruce for putting his money where his mouth is.

while i give him credit for doing that... i guess... one should think he should check his facts first.

Since when was Saddam Hussein connected to 9/11?

Everything is possible. But I don't think that it is a good idea when everybody who has some money offers it to people for such information. That should stay something only the police or the state can do.

Well like it's been said before, his facts are wrong, so really there is no sacrifice.

Other than that, there have been many in Hollywood that have actually made sacrifice and do a lot more than Willis.

Ha! What police force or state has millions of extra dollars to put on rewards? The state should give me back the education money it took away halfway through the semester.

I'd just like to know if he thinks the good things happening in Iraq outweigh the bad

As for his ex-wife, well I think he's quite a person for being friends w/ Ashton and for going to their wedding, etc. It's good for his kids too.

His facts are wrong? What? You don't think Osama Bin Laden was behind 9-11?

Care to name some of the celebrities in hollywood that have been willing to make sizeable monetary contributions towards the war on terror?

Once again, not what I said. You said,

And that's simple not true. Just because they are not working to support the war in Iraq, doesn't mean they haven't made sacrifice. You are viewing this from you own bias.

Ok...

1. You said his facts are wrong. What facts does he have wrong?

2. You said celebrities are making sacrifices greater that Willis. Examples please.
