War Made Easy: How Presidents & Pundits Keep Spinning Us To Death

Film by: Media Education Foundation
Year:     2007
Length:  70 mins

This documentary explores how the same stories have been fed to the American public, to garner patriotic support for the many wars it has entered over the past 50 years. Narrator Sean Penn guides us through the general methodology which the US government and media have used to get the ball rolling in Vietnam, Kuwait, Korea, Iraq, Panama and Afghanistan, to name just a few, and a wealth of archived news footage is used to show how they keep the US public behind these wars.

  1. Virtualna stvarnost, virtuelni život, bez morala postaje smrtnosno oružje. Ljudski život je tako jeftin!

  2. Nikad jeftiniji, nikad zamenljiviji, na žalost. :-(

  3. Imam ovaj film ili dokumentarac već skoro godinu i nešto dana. Hteo sam da ga gledam, moj drug kaže ajde i ja hoću, ali kako još nema prevoda za njega, on ne može da prati, pa ga ni ja nisam gledao. Ali ću verovatno ipak da ga sam pogledam, naročito pošto si me sada podsetila na to!

  4. Ma dokumentarci su čudo. Ja više ne znam kako da bodbodem narod da malo više prione učenje i/ili obnavljanje engleskog jezika. Mnogo propuštaju, jer za većinu dokumentaraca nema prevoda, niti će ih biti, osim ako se entuzijasti ne pozabave time. :-)
