    A very gentle documentary that makes the case the US government always lies about the reasons it goes to war. I does not argue that war is bad, or even that government lying about war is bad. It just argues you should not be naïve and trust governments to tell the truth about war when historicaly they have not done so in the last 60 years. It shows how governments sell the war as if it were soap, and how they have co-opted the media to help them do it. They show parallel examples from Johnson to Bush 43. She mostly just show historical news clips to make their point. Movie website.

    Documents with grisly footage certain themes in US foreign policy ranging from Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Russia, Afghanistan to Iraq including:

    • Imposing Milton Friedman’s shock economics on other countries
    • Use of torture techniques pioneered by Dr. Ian Cameron, terrorising the elderly, women and children too.
    • Impoverishing the masses and incrementing the incomes of the elite 100 fold.
    • Starting wars to distract from economic woes.
    • Supporting military dictators
    After viewing this movie you will likely have a strong urge to do some unspeakable harm to Cameron, Reagan, Friedman, Pinochet, Rumsfeld, Thatcher and Bush after seeing what they did and hearing about it from their own mouths. There is a book of the same name by Naomi Klein. She appears several times in this DVD.

  3. Explanation of how various weapons work click to watch Learn about heat ammo, depleted uranium, phosphorus, cluster bombs and MIRVs.
  4. Taxi To The Dark Side click to watch Using the torture and death in 2002 of an innocent Afghan taxi driver as the touchstone, this film examines changes after 9/11 in U.S. policy toward suspects in the war on terror. It tells the story of abuse at Bagram Air Base, Abu Ghraib, and Guantánamo Bay. From Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Gonzalez came unwritten orders to use any means necessary. The CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) and soldiers with little training used sleep deprivation, sexual assault, stress positions, waterboarding, dogs and other terror tactics to seek information from detainees. Many speakers lament the loss of American ideals in pursuit of security.
  5. No End In Sight: Iraq’s Descent Into Chaos is a documentary mainly about the bungling of the occupation of Iraq, for example rashly firing half a million armed Iraqi soldiers who then had no means of support, so naturally joined the resistance. Many of the Americans in charge never set foot in Iraq, had no middle east experience, spoke not a word of Arabic, had no military experience and had no experience with occupation. They tried to manage Iraq without ever meeting an Iraqi face-to-face or leaving Washington. The documentary touches briefly on how much worse off Iraqis are under American occupation without water, electricity, sewers or jobs. People without money to buy food simply go without food and die. Without being in the least shrill, it gently paints Bush’s bureaucrats as egotistical, arrogant, heartless and mindless as a pound of Velveeta. It also talks about how the US contractors ripped of the army for billions, with the army’s collusion, and how local Iraqi contractors did construction jobs so much faster and cheaper.
  6. US Soldier throws a puppy off a cliff in Iraq. Americans are so sure that soldiers are boy scouts. In reality, they are sadistic bastards. That’s why they enlisted. This video proves my point for at least these two perverts. It the sign of a warped mind. click to watch
    I can usually judge a fellow by what he laughs at.

  7. Two minute overview of torture in Iraq at Abu Ghraib, and commentary about the incongruity of torture with American self image. It explains that Bush is torturing because death is not scary enough. He is upping the ante to terrify Iraqis into doing his bidding. click to watch
  8. US soldiers use some gentle torture. click to watch

    upc031398169321
    Control Room is a documentary looking at the Iraq war from the point of view of the people working at Al Jazeera satellite TV network in Kuwait and to a lesser extent from the Iraqi man in the street. Al Jazeera is the most popular Arab channel. It is banned in two Arab countries for being critical of their regimes. You can see what lying hypocrites Bush and the American military are. The documentary just puts the camera on the US media representatives and lets them spout Bushian bullshit which has all been since proven lies, all without editorial comment.

  18. PBS (Public Broadcasting System) Frontline documentary on torture. Interviews those in the Bush administration who justified the torture, ordered the torture and carried it out. Listening to the confessions and watching the faces of the torturers packs a lot more punch that reading a list of the crimes. click to watch
  19. The Dark Side: dozens of CIA, Pentagon and NSA (National Security Agency) people PBS interviewed reveal how Cheney lied and manipulated the data used to justify the Iraq war. click to watch click to watch
  20. Hadji Girl: US soldier laughs and sings about killing an Iraqi family. This video made my blood boil. This shows the true colours of an American soldier.
  21. US soldiers teach Iraqis children to sing fuck Eye-raq click to watch
  22. A video created by the Iraqi Resistance in English. click to watch It rationally and passionately argues their case. It contains no religious cant. They call for non-violent resistance to the USA and Britain, by boycotting and using the Euro or a basket of currency instead of the dollar. By helping Iraq, you are helping yourself since you may be next. It explains the Iraqi strategy — to make the Americans spend more on the war than the value of the oil they manage to steal.
  23. Mission Accomplished: Mission Accomplished click to watch 90-minute BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) video by Sean Langan about daily life in Iraq during about 8 months into the occupation, both of the Iraqis and the soldiers, including the AM radio the soldiers listen to.
  24. No Bravery click to watch by James Blunt James Blunt’s music video about the sadness of Americans and Iraqis alike over the insane war.

    There are children standing here,
    Arms outstretched into the sky,
    Tears drying on their face.
    He [Bush] has been here.

    Brothers lie in shallow graves.
    Fathers lost without a trace.
    A nation blind to their disgrace,
    Since he’s been here.

    And I see no bravery,
    No bravery in your eyes anymore.
    Only sadness.

    Houses burnt beyond repair.
    The smell of death is in the air.
    A woman weeping in despair says,
    He has been here.

    Tracer lighting up the sky.
    It’s another families’ turn to die.
    A child afraid to even cry out says,
    He has been here.

    And I see no bravery,
    No bravery in your eyes anymore.
    Only sadness.

    There are children standing here,
    Arms outstretched into the sky,
    But no one asks the question why,
    He has been here.

    Old men kneel and accept their fate.
    Wives and daughters cut and raped.
    A generation drenched in hate.
    Yes, he has been here.

    And I see no bravery,
    No bravery in your eyes anymore.
    Only sadness.

  25. Gwynne Dyer on the state of Iraq after years of war. The Mess They Made click to watch
  26. Robert Newman’s History of Oil click to watch This is a wickedly funny presentation by the British equivalent of comedian Mark Russell. Newman explains the history of oil starting back in the 1800s up to the present day, why everyone did as they did. Most fun is his explanation of the petrodollar and why conversion from petrodollars to Euros is what got Iraq, Iran and North Korea on the axis of evil list. For a drier, but more detailed explanation of why converting the petrodollar to the Euro is so serious to the economic health of the USA, read this Pravda article.
  27. Analysis of news coverage of the Iraq war. Images of Iraq dominate our TV news bulletins every night but in this film, BBC channel 4 news presenter Jon Snow, questions whether these reports are sugar-coating the bloody reality of war under the US-led occupation. American television is even more strictly censored than British. It also shows American soldiers killing journalists and civilians.

In three parts: click to watch, Part 2: McClellan’s child molesting. Colbert risked his life to deliver this message to Bush and America.

  41. NPR Democracy Now!: A national, listener-sponsored public radio and TV show available via Real Audio on the Internet. They invite both the left and right to debate each other. Oddly Nation Public Radio has a video feed over the Internet. They aired the debate between former Attorney General Ramsey Clark and Lieutenant Colonel David Lapin of the Pentagon about the sanction bombings of Iraq. Unfortunately, NPR has withdrawn the video, and nobody posted a copy. If you saw it, you would note in particular Lapin’s classic doubletalk about why the daily bombings of Iraq over 12 years were done in self defense even though there were no American casualties ever, and no American planes ever hit. Here are some of Clark’s writings on the sanctions: A United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) report in 1999 concluded that half a million Iraqi children had died in the previous eight years because of the sanctions. Columbia University professor Richard Garfield, an epidemiologist and an expert on the effects of sanctions, estimated in 2003 that the sanctions had resulted in infant and young-child fatalities numbering between 343,900 and 529,000. I talked with Iraqi ex-patriates who lived through the bombings. They said a million or two people had been killed. I tend to believe them, since they were ordinary folk who were there. They did not have a political axe to grind. They were answering my questions, not trying to sell me a figure. Terry Jones of Monty Python did Swiftian essay on the attempts to help the Iraqi children with the sanctions.

  47. Depleted Uranium: click to watch featuring Pulitzer prize winner John Hanchette and Pentagon DU expert Dr. Doug Rokke, a serving officer for 30 years. It is mostly about the experiences with DU in the first Gulf War. America, Britain, Russia and Pakistan all convert their nuclear power plant wasted into DU weapons and sell them on the international market. A DU round is 10 pounds of solid uranium, contaminated with plutonium, americium, neptunium and uranium-236. It catches fire the instant it leaves the barrel. On impact, 40-50% spalls (breaks off into tiny bb sized shrapnel). The oxides form a fine inhaleable powder. One third of the Gulf War vets are on permanent disability. [The Gulf War soldiers were in Iraq a tiny fraction of the time the soldiers are being kept in Iraq.] Rokke says he was ordered to lie about DU, because the military was determined to continue using it, despite the danger to US troops. Bush sent troops to Iraq with known defective gas masks. In the Iraq heat, the sweat breaks contact at the side of the face.

It has some pricelessly funny takeoffs of Tony Blair and horny-for-war George W. Bush The deadpan factual description of the British war exercises in Oman left me helpless with laughter. Fact packed.

  58. Chickenhawks are people who advocate war, yet avoid military service themselves, and who use political or economic clout to wangle deferments for their sons and grandsons. Nearly all the hawks in the US government are also chickenhawks. Chickenhawk Hall of Shame:. Explicitly lists chickenhawks. Be patient. It is a little slow to start, but picks up steam, and does a roll call of the all the most famous chickenhawks. Don’t confuse chickenhawks with conscientious objectors. Conscientious objectors actively oppose war, often at great personal sacrifice, having to go to jail or leave the their country and loved ones behind to make a new life in a more peaceful country such as Canada or Sweden. In contrast, chickenhawks advocate war, but only if other people fight it for them.
    The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.
    ~ George S. Patton (born: 1885-11-11 died: 1945-12-21 at age: 60), General

    I wonder if Patton knew his statement would apply equally well to chickenhawk strategy.

    Chickenhawks are often motivated by racism or contempt for the poor. Most of the Americans who die in combat are poor blacks and Hispanics.

    When the rich wage war, it is the poor who die.
    ~ Jean-Paul Sartre (born: 1905-06-21 died: 1980-04-15 at age: 74)

    The further from the battle scene the chicken hawk is, the louder his war cry. The fattest tubs of lard cheer loudest at football games. Chicken hawk squawking is a way of compensating for personal impotence with fantasies of sadistic power over others. Quite pathetic really.

    Chickenhawks are even afraid to look at the pictures of their victims before or after they have been killed.

    A biography of George W. Bush. To my astonishment, it is scripted as if by W’s lawyers to put him in the best possible light. It leaves out all the most damning events of his life. There is nothing about the rapes. There is nothing about 9/11. There is nothing about Joe Wilson. There is nothing about Judge Hellerstein. Why? Perhaps Stone was bought off, was threatened, feared legal action…? It is as soggy as a marshmallow soaked in gin. If you like your religion syrupy, e.g. Touched By an Angel, this movie will appeal.
