Japan Today : DPJ's Okada recommends 'Fahrenheit 9/11' to Koizumi

TOKYO — Katsuya Okada, head of Japan's main opposition party, took a jab at Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi Thursday by calling on him to see Michael Moore's much-hyped and controversial film "Fahrenheit 9/11" which criticizes U.S. President George Bush and his war in Iraq.

"I'd like to recommend that Prime Minister Koizumi also see it," the leader of the Democratic Party of Japan said after watching a preview of the movie in Yurakucho. "It made me think of how the war is not only producing many casualties and divisions among the Iraqi people but also among people in the United States." (Kyodo News)
