Directing Traffic -- Check It Out

Some time ago I downloaded a documentary and, today, I finally got around to watching it.
All I can say is this: If you have the capability to download movies, please go here, find ‘Why We Fight’, choose the 2006 documentary—not the propaganda film of 1945—and watch it.

It explains the Military/Industrial Complex Eisenhower warned us against in a way that even I can understand: That everything from the food and laundry services to the munitions and weapons systems provided to the troops in the field are directly involved in our [yes, it’s true] corrupt political system which, though it wasn't entirely created by BushCo is being brilliantly used by this administration to benefit itself and its friends.

The documentary answers a lot of questions including the one we were all asking on September 12, 2001, as the initial shock was wearing off: 'Why do they hate us?'

Thanks, I 'll check that out. I don't usually download movies, but I'll give this a shot.

Thanks, TC. I don't know when I'll have time to watch a movie, but I'm well familiar with the vast collusion between government and and corporations where military spending is concerned.
