"Why We Fight" - Complete video here. Must watch documentary on the Military-Industrial Complex.

"Why We Fight" -a riveting 2005 Sony pictures documentary directed by Eugene Jarecki. I must have missed this one, until now. An eye opening, but hardly surprising summation of the Military-Industrial Complex, as forewarned by our last great president, Dwight D. Eisenhower. He saw into the future, and was dead-on accurate about what he wished to warn Americans of, and we have fulfilled tenfold despite his warning. But as any wise man or woman will tell you...Americans have short memories. 

It is slightly over an hour and a half, the complete film here- but you will have lasting impressions, and a sense of perspective perhaps you hadn't before. I wish the majority of the American public would see this film-it is enlightening to say the very least. 

So go grab some coffee, and a sandwich...get comfortable and please find this film as important as I have.
