War Made Easy

War Made Easy 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

  1. Right wing Americans are such innocents. the whole world knew Iraq had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11 – the terrorists on the planes were all Saudi’s.
    But true to form right wingers in their disgusting willful ignorance of all things suck it up like the fools they are – every single time. The last just war that the US was involved in was WWII. All the regime changes since have been to benefit rich white fascist leaning criminals – mainly business owners and politicians.

  2. All I know about war is…Thank God I wasn’t born in the USA. It’s not that I’m afraid to be a good soldier, it’s that I don’t think that your country should tell you that you have to, when the so-called enemy is thousands of miles away. When the enemy declares war on my country and foreign troups start massing at the bordrs…you won’t have to tell me or force me…just tell the enemy to watch out!

  3. Good documentary.

  4. War is a Racket. Still. Major General Smedley Butler’s, one of only a hand full of people to get two Congressional Medals of Honor, take on it

  5. Excellent documentary, and more relevant than ever.
