Craig Winneker the American-born editor of the Brussels-based techcentralstation.com has seen the new Star Wars installment and says there are anti-Bush and anti-Iraq war messages all over the plot.
Winneker says in one scene, Senator Padame laments when the senate gives executive power to Chancellor Palpatine: So this is how liberty dies to thunderous applause.
In another scene, Anakin says, If youre not with me, youre my enemy, which Winneker says elicited laughs from the audience who saw it mocking a similar statement Bush made.
Winneker says Lucas wasnt trying to make Fahrenheit 9/11 but he says he does feel Lucas was getting a little too political in the script.
