George Lucas: I Meant the OTHER Evil Empire

George Lucas at the world premiere for "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith," commented on the saga's applicability 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.

"On the personal level it was how does a good person turn into a bad person, and part of the observation of that is that most bad people think they are good people, they are doing it for the right reasons."

Arthur Chrenkoff says, "I'd like to be fitted for a black hat, please," but TM Lutas is not so willing to give up the white hat. I appreciate Chrenkoff's sentiment, but I'm going to side with Lutas here.
