Why We Fight DVD
Directed by Eugene Jarecki
Award-winning documentary that examines the history and philosophy behind the American propensity for war.
In 1961, retiring President Dwight Eisenhower warned against the influence of a growing 'military industrial complex'.
Over forty years later, with America fighting another foreign war, director Eugene Jarecki asks what are the reasons - political, ideological, economic - behind America's appetite for war, and have they been counter-productive?
Featuring interviews with military personnel from all ranks of the armed forces, veterans, politicians, and military strategists, Jarecki offers an in-depth examination of the core military philosophies, how they have changed since the Second World War, and how a system has evolved whose survival depends on a state of constant war.
