    Default Why We Fight.....documentary.

    Just recently watched this from netflix.

    It deals with American foreign as being dominated by its military industrial complex since the close of WWII.

    Very good look at it, and how Eisenhower, in his farewell speech, warned against the dangers of this, and how even Washington was always against America having a standing army.

    Great look at how corporations like Halliburton, Lockheed, etc., the contracters and Congress are becoming intermixed, to the point that they are one.

    Scary.

    ^^^lincoln also warned against corporate interests controlling government

    does it go into the privatization of defense and the armed forces in general,
    also how corporations like wackenhut control the prison-industrial complex?

    who made it?

    i hope it doesn't come off like i'm grilling you, this sounds interesting actually, i'd give it a look

    it was made by eugen jabeki or something....i forget dudes name.

    it doesnt get into the prisons. It focused on basically, why we have fought since the close of WW2, or reallly since Eisenhower left office.

    It focused more on Iraq than anything else, but touched alittle bit on the minor conflicts we have had around the world.

    Making money while destroying a nation, make money while rebuilding it then make even more money off the occupied resources and trade concessions.

    America doesn't suck. In fact, in theory, it is by far the best place you could be. The sad thing is that it has not heeded the warnings of the great leaders of the past, and fallen into the trappings of great power that stared it in the face after WW2 but especially after the fall of the USSR.

    Ordinary Americans have nothing to do with this. They don't even benefit from it, on the contrary it hurts them.

    But they can't fool the people forever.

    yep. Thats what it was all about. They are not going to spend this money on technology because they want it to sit there. Its built so it can be used to acquire more.

    I can't see it changing either. So many people are wrapped up in the notion that we need a huge army to protect ourselves.

    The truth is, we don't. We only need that if we want to do what we are doing.

    But good luck telling that to someone and actually convincing them. Especially now that everyone across the globe is anti American because of what the powers that be have done.

    They have played it beautifully.




    So, these morons like Drunken Monk are really only playing into the hands of these people when they go on their rants.

    Exactly. With the war in Irak and our president Chirac standing against it, it became "cool" to despise Americans. But its funny how when Obama got elected, everybody started loving America. People judge a country and its people on its government, when usually a government works against its people and for itself.
