War Made Easy - Trailer



"War Made Easy [the DVD] reaches into the Orwellian memory hole to expose a 50-year pattern of government deception and media spin that has dragged the United States into one war after another from Vietnam to Iraq. Narrated by actor and activist Sean Penn, the film exhumes remarkable archival footage of official distortion and exaggeration from LBJ to George W. Bush, revealing in stunning detail how the American news media have uncritically disseminated the pro-war messages of successive presidential administrations."

This is a trenchant, compelling broad overview analysis of the repeated cycles of propaganda used by the U.S. government to drive the nation into war through lies and then keep us in conflicts by, in essence, challenging the "manhood" of an ill-conceived war's opponents.

By showing footage of side-by-side presidential justifications for various American wars since WW II -- especially Vietnam and Iraq -- the patterns of deception followed by intimidation become clear.

It also becomes evident that the architects of war in recent years have intentionally deceived the American public in order to launch conflicts. Then they claim that to pull out would undercut our GIs. In short, it becomes heretical not "to support our troops" who the people commanding them aren't supporting by putting them in unnecessary -- and in the case of Iraq unwinnable -- wars.

A compelling documentary that connects some very important dots about techniques used by the executive branch to keep America at war.
