Why We Fight: New Film Takes a Hard Look at the American War Machine From World War II to Iraq
by Amy Goodman
A new film opening in theaters nationwide Friday takes a look at the American war machine over the past half century. "Why We Fight" looks at conflicts from World War II right up to the current war in Iraq to examine the political, economic and ideological reasons that drive American war policy. We play excerpts from the film and speak with award-winning director Eugene Jarecki.
