Why we fight

Documentary by Eugene Jarecki

About the United States's relationship with war as a business. The title refers to the World War II-era eponymous newsreels commissioned by the U.S. Government to justify their decision to enter the war against the Axis Powers.



The best documentary ever

The best documentary ever made! Every American capable of thinking must see this.


This is actually an award winning film...

I have seen it couple of years ago and have a copy of it. As an Anti War movie documentary it’s really not about WWII but more about Bush's war machine. It covers from WWII with emphasis on current Iraq war.


Also Watch the movie documentary, "Who killed the Electric Car?" 2006.



Great Video!

You should've seen it to the end!  I watched most of it and it's the opposite of the usual American spread-the-freedom (read "War") propaganda.  It, essentially, questions America's Unilateralism and Pre-emption doctorine and whether the American people are told the whole story before the country is committed to a war.  Some of the note-worthy commentators are Gore Vidal (Al Gore's uncle) and Susan Eisenhover (late President Eisenhover's grand daughter).


I closed the film when the following people were interviewed

Bill Kristol, John McCain..

If that was wrong of me, please let me know.

Why you fight? Resources, power and money.

Everything else, Islam, Democracy, Liberalism, Human Rights etc is the sugar coating to make your mind accept a mission when you get sent to the slaughterhouse with a rifle in your hand, and a tin helmet on your stupid head.
