  1. Watching it now. It looks to be fascinating.

    Good luck to these good folks.

  2. Covers nothing that happened in the past four years and avoids putting a light on Obama's bus policies. Completely irrelevant in 2012/13.

  3. Bush* era policies I mean.

  4. Yeah I think the documentary was good. But I think they need to be doing a part 2 and it is misleading at the end. They need to show how Obama didnt end the war in Iraq. Iraqis of all people ended the war and kicked the U.S. out. Big difference there than when Obama brought them home. They need to talk about the U.S. war propaganda against Iran has been getting hot under Obama etc etc. Its time for a Part 2.

  5. Couldn't agree more. This was an excellent documentary, covering a large scope of history. But a sequel is due, especially on how the effects of the past 4 years on the development of the antiwar movement.

  6. I find particularly compelling the Iraq War Veterans Against the War aspect of the documentary. Nice job! It is a story that needs to be told.

    Thank you for downloading my e-book (WORLD WAR III – A FUNERAL FOR ALL HUMANITY?) , please review on Amazon e-bookstore, Barnes &Noble e-books store and more -so that we can make future versions even better.
    The book is dedicated to all lovers of peace in the World Today.
    No doubt, we must condemn the territorial and commercial wars of our contemporary period, with our merciless involvements of the innocent. We must demand as a matter of urgency that ethical values, humanity and respect for the rights of others in submission to truth and to what is right, shall be made regnant over the thinking and living of all mankind, and insists that until that demand is realized the world can never find its way to peace and quiet.

  11. There really needs to be a reliable, consistent counter-news source who has the confidence and trust of US victim nations to get the straight scoop from their point of view. pr de biz mi eklemedik

  12. Hi this is a very smart works and good news,I am hoping the same best work from you in the future as well. In fact your creative writing abilities has inspired me to start my own Blog.

  13. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.

  14. A new ebook,War III …A funeral for all HUMANITY?
    "War from its inception is cruel,brutal and nasty.Mankind`s downhill rush from moral level has plunges into materialist flood of social unrest and sedition.The enormous advance gained by the sciences of inanimate matter over those of living things is one of the greatest catastrophes ever suffered by humanity.
    Anecdotes from world history,stories from newspapers,problems with grief keep this book from being a scholarly study and should make it
    interesting for today`s reader who is curious and anxious about dealing with the age of uncertainty we are living in.
    It goes beyong other books in its field in that,instead of just describing a future full of uncertainty and flux,i recommend a point of view,a philosophy,which can help humanity live fuller and happier lives.
    The book was written because of the pervasive nature of uncertainty in today`s world and the general level of ignorance of how to find happiness and deal with opportunities to make peace with ourselves and in order to avoid the danger awaiting humanity ahead." http://www.amazon.com/World-War-III-Humanity-eboo
