Why We Fight

Angela Keaton, June 04, 2012

It’s no Kony 2012!

I’m enough of a cynic to know that no one learns anything from the past, at least Eugene Jarecki can sleep well knowing he was right.

While Jarecki’s documentary “Why We Fight” was released in 2005, it (sadly) seems just as fresh as it did seven years ago. Featuring: John McCain, the late Chalmers Johnson, Richard Perle, William Kristol, Gore Vidal, Joseph Cirincione, Karen Kwiatkowski and the family of President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

    One of THE things that woke me up to the threat of American militarism — along with the Nemesis trilogy by Chalmers. A must-see documentary.

      Why we always fight? that's actually one of our problems and that is why we need to find that inner peace too.

    We have to put ourselves as a people with great mission even if you are only a poor or small self esteem we can help people in everyday. I have many learning as one american said "ask not what you can do for your country but ask what you can do for your country" and i admire it so much..
