Remember that time the U.S. shot down an Iranian civilian airliner over Iranian airspace, killing all 290 on board, including 66 children, and then refused to apologize for doing it?
"I will never apologize for the United States. I don’t care what the facts are. I’m not an apologize-for-America kind of guy." — Vice President (and then-presidential candidate) George H.W. Bush, commenting on the downed airliner, 8/2/1988

That quote makes me sick.


Here’s the Wikipedia article, in case your memory’s not so great.

Here’s the NYPD murdering a man with a chokehold:

A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.

“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.

Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.

“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.

No words.

I’ve watched all of the other clips, and I cannot get into the dubs. To be honest, it’s kinds like the 90s all over again. Although, it’s not as much of a miss (hopefully Naru/Molly hopefully won’t sound like Fran Drescher).

Still, there is none of the emotion, the depth of the original Japanese versions. English is after all different than Japanese, insofar as how it sounds, but the english dubs just are not good. Mamoru sounds like he’s been selling used cars and Beryl reminds me of an overly ambitious science professor—WTF?

I’ll stick with the subs for my copy of the rerelease.
