Documentary: Why We Fight

Here's the 2006 Academy Award nominated documentary Why We Fight. I recommend you take a look at it if you haven't seen it already. It does a nice job of exposing the militaristic nature of American society, and the ability of the government to control its citizens in spite of having a 'free and open media'. Actually there isn't too much in the documentary I found all that revealing, but it's effective in presenting its criticism of US policy in a form palatable to the American public.

You can also watch it at Google Video. You can find Eisenhower's military-industrial complex speech here.
