IS ONE NAIVE TO HOPE?
Remember Jimmy Stewart's words from the Civil War movie, SHENANDOAH, as he delivers a soliloquy at his wife's headstone:
"Well about this war, Martha. I just don't know. The politicians talk about the need for it, the old men talk about the glory of it, and the soldiers? Well, they just wanna go home."
POINTS TO PONDER:
FROM THE 1950'S TO THE PRESENT: WHY DOES AMERICA FIGHT?
Preemptive War Morally Defensible, Strategically Necessary?
Interventionist Foreign Policies Required To "Protect" America?
Does The USA Meddle In The Foreign Affairs Of Other Nations?
Democracy Be Imposed At The Point OF A Sword?
America Be Engaged In "Nation-Building"?
The "American Empire", Unlike All Previous Ones, Be Exempt From
The Dust Bin And Ash Heap of History?
Does One Fight The Power Of The "Military-Industrial" Complex?
Boldly addressing these and other questions, WHY WE FIGHT is a very sobering and eye-opening documentary film that suggests that we, as common citizens, are powerless to control our political destiny, and it ultimately answers the question, "Does it matter who runs and who wins?" with a resounding "NO!".
Directed by Eugene Jarecki, WHY WE FIGHT won the Grand Jury Award at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival in Utah as the best documentary film of the year.
