This 2005 documentary film explores a half-century of U.S. foreign policy from World War II to the Iraq War.
It starts with the 1961 Farewell Address of Dwight Eisenhower, who warned that the political and corporate interests had become alarmingly entangled in the business of war as a form of the so-called "military-industrial complex."
The United States of America is drifting dangerously far from her founding principles toward a more imperial and self-distructing future with an ever-increasing defence budget.
Later in the film, the director reveals an evil-force as a form of the "military-industry-Congress-thinktank complex."
The title sounds quite sarcastic because it refers to the World War II-era propaganda movies commissioned by the U.S. Government to justify their decision to enter the war against the Axis Powers.
If you view the film, you will certainly come to undestand who is making war for whom.

an edge of your seat documentary, every section is more shocking than the last. War affects us all and the military indsustrial complex is a driver of it. This film is a must see. A brave exploration of this too often hidden problem.

A fascinating subject is well presented in this film. The degree to which the military-industrial complex pervades the workings of the United States is truly frightening, and 'Why We Fight' gives valuable insight into this.
The companion website features a 70-odd-page study guide to accompany the film.
