A few years ago I did a POST about why I'm a pacifist. One of the reasons I didn't discuss was that I think most wars are based on bullshit lies and the ability of the government (in conjunction with the media) to convince us that we can bomb our way to peace. You see, I love logic. I find very little logic when it comes to war and the rationale for it. This film does a great job of exposing the collusion between our leaders and the media when it comes to "making the case" for war. It features Norman Solomon, an excellent author and journalist who focuses on the media. For a lot of you, much of the footage will be familiar, but it is organized in a very clear, systematic way that shows how we continue to make the same mistakes and buy into the same crap each and every time. If you're a big fan of war, check this out and let me know what you think.
