Fahrenheit 9/11 only for adults

American censors gave Michael Moore's movie "Fahrenheit 9/11" R rating for "strong language and violence". An "R" rating prohibits anyone under 17 years of age from seeing the film unless accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.

"I think that the R rating is wrong and inappropriate, and we're going to do everything we can do to get it overturned and make it a PG-13 rating so we can bring 'Fahrenheit 9/11' to the widest possible audience," Lions Gate Films Releasing president Tom Ortenberg said.

"It is sadly very possible that many 15- and 16-year-olds will be asked and recruited to serve in Iraq in the next couple of years," Moore said in a weekend statement.

"If they are old enough to be recruited and capable of being in combat and risking their lives, they certainly deserve the right to see what is going on in Iraq."

Probably there is time to add R rating to all news channels.
