Why We Fight (Documentary)

“God help the country when somebody sits at this desk who doesn’t know as much about the military as I do.”
~ Dwight Eisenhower
 
 
Why We Fight, directed by Eugene Jarecki, is a 2006 documentary film about the military–industrial complex. The title refers to the World War II-era eponymous propaganda movies commissioned by the U.S. Government to justify their decision to enter the war against the Axis Powers.

Why We Fight was first screened at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival on 17 January 2005, exactly forty-four years after President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s farewell address.

President Eisenhower’s phrase “military-industrial complex” and the film as a whole, suggest that war happens not for ideological reasons but for economic ones: War benefits certain corporate interests, regardless of the enemy or the political affiliation of the president in office.
