Synopsis

Why We Fight describes the rise and maintenance of the United States militaryĖindustrial complex and its 50-year involvement with the wars led by the United States to date, especially its 2003 Invasion of Iraq. The documentary asserts that in every decade since World War II, the American public was misled so that the government (incumbent Administration) could take them to war and fuel the military-industrial economy maintaining American political dominance in the world. Interviewed about this matter, are politician John McCain, political scientist and former CIA analyst Chalmers Johnson, politician Richard Perle, neoconservative commentator William Kristol, writer Gore Vidal, and public policy expert Joseph Cirincione.

Why We Fight documents the consequences of said foreign policy with the stories of a Vietnam War veteran whose son was killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks, and who then asked the military to write the name of his dead son on any bomb to be dropped in Iraq; and that of a 23-year-old New Yorker who enlists in the United States Army because he was poor and in debt, his decision impelled by his mother's death; and a military explosives scientist (Anh Duong) who arrived in the U.S. as a refugee child from Vietnam in 1975.

Interview with Chalmers Johnson

'Nemesis' Tells of U.S. in Peril
February 27, 2007

A year before the attacks of Sept. 11, Chalmers Johnson warned that decades of secret U.S. operations overseas would bring disaster at home. Johnson talks about his book Nemesis, and what he calls the last days of the American republic.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chalmers_Johnson

He wrote numerous books including, most recently, three examinations of the consequences of American Empire: Blowback, The Sorrows of Empire, and Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic. A former cold warrior, his fears for the US have changed:

"A nation can be one or the other, a democracy or an imperialist, but it canít be both. If it sticks to imperialism, it will, like the old Roman Republic, on which so much of our system was modeled, like the old Roman Republic, it will lose its democracy to a domestic dictatorship."

Thank you for all the links and information!

I had never heard of Chalmers Johnson or the new "Why We Fight" documentary.

I learn so much about America from Russians lol. You know more about us than we do.

Thank you too for the Russian translated of the 1943 original <3
It's amazing to me that we were so positive about Russia and the Soviet Union at one time, if only for a brief time.
