Why We Fight... ask Ike

Here's another movie with a deep message that asks the viewer to question "Why we fight?" Ask Ike! Dwight David "Ike" Eisenhower the Republican President and American General during World War II warned us about the evils of the "military-industrial complex". That's when the military and the arms industry get in bed and make a love child of hate and destruction that gets fed and babysat by crooked politicians.

After World War II, the United States was left with a brand-spankin' new military arms industry (that we didn't need before) and a huge Federal push for research and development to keep our military technologically advance in the name of security. Since then it's spiraled out of control into a sick culture of war profiteers, bastards, scallywags, pirates, grifters, and Dick Cheney.

"Why We Fight" won the grand jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival and critics are saying it was better than "Fahrenheit 9/11". The Director wanted to make a non-partisan film that took a serious look at our obsession with war and the profits that are made in the process. Check out the trailer here. (The movie opens Friday 1/20/06, so check your local listings, biatch!)

this documentary bullshit, created by chickenshit liberals is all propaganda,,Senator McCain even left the interview because it so much bullshit...The military industrial complex u call it,were created to have jobs by the government jobs for people in areas that needed it..without it thousands of Americans would be unemployed..do your research before you believe this bullshit. President IKE does not live in our generation..hardly a person to give opinions about our lives right now..if he experienced 9/11 he would be the first support war against terror. same bullshit when i was iraq how the aljeezera, american media and bbc...saw the war. stupid thing about liberals they actually believe they are right even when they are wrong..just listen to them..just how stupid and misinformed they are..they believe other chickenshit liberals and its gospel to them as truth..idiots..

LMAO!!! Honestly read what you just wrote. How are you raggin on Liberals when your only defense of the Military Industrial Complex is that it creates Government jobs? Aren't the Liberals supposed to be the ones who champion Big Government? So now conservatives are the ones who prop up the State? Its obvious with the Bush Crime Family that so called "conservatives" grow the State and feed our tax money into the Military Industrial Complex in order to keep up this illegal world-wide empire. Its just hilarious how you talk shit about liberals while you yourself are cheerleading Big Government. Are we a country of free independent citizens or government workers? You'd trade in our liberty for a government check, you would have snitched to the Red Coats while the rest of us were smuggling supplies to the Continental Army. Why do you hate liberty so much?
