George Lucas on Iraq war, ‘Star Wars’

George Lucas weighs in on the war in Iraq and Star Wars…

“Star Wars” director George Lucas says that although he wrote the original film during the Vietnam War, his six-part saga could apply to the war in Iraq.

”In terms of evil, one of the original concepts was how does a democracy turn itself into a dictatorship,” Lucas told a news conference at Cannes, where his final episode had its world premiere.

”The parallels between what we did in Vietnam and what we’re doing in Iraq now are unbelievable.

I totally agree with his point of view on how a democracy can end up turning itself into an evil dictatorship. The US government is a very good example of it.

On another note, I can’t wait to see Episode III : Revenge Of The Sith… I’m dying to see Anakin’s transformation into Darth Vader…
I just feel this movie’s gonna rock big time!

  1. Jradya, lol, let me know if you find it ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Marouen, lol, thanks for the link. It’s cool ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I’d believe in the parallels between the Republic/Empire and the US Gov’t if Bush decided to invoke Emergancy powers and stay in office for more than his 2 terms. As well as refuse to relenquish his leadership.

    Otherwise Bush is just your run-of-the-mill power-grabbing jerk. Much like pretty much every other leader in this world.
