I watched this documentary yesterday. A very interesting analysis of the war mongering efforts of successive American Presidents since world war II, their lies & factual distortions as well as the connivance of the American news media. Definitely worth one's while to view this documentary. Here is a small synopsis i took from their site.

WAR MADE EASY:
How Presidents & Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death.
Narrated by Sean Penn

War Made Easy reaches into the Orwellian memory hole to expose a 50-year pattern of government deception and media spin that has dragged the United States into one war after another from Vietnam to Iraq. Narrated by actor and activist Sean Penn, the film exhumes remarkable archival footage of official distortion and exaggeration from LBJ to George W. Bush, revealing in stunning detail how the American news media have uncritically disseminated the pro-war messages of successive presidential administrations.

War Made Easy gives special attention to parallels between the Vietnam war and the war in Iraq. Guided by media critic Norman Solomon’s meticulous research and tough-minded analysis, the film presents disturbing examples of propaganda and media complicity from the present alongside rare footage of political leaders and leading journalists from the past, including Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Defense Secretary Robert McNamara, dissident Senator Wayne Morse, and news correspondents Walter Cronkite and Morley Safer.

Norman Solomon’s work has been praised by the Los Angeles Times as “brutally persuasive” and essential “for those who would like greater context with their bitter morning coffee.” This film now offers a chance to see that context on the screen.

I downloaded it through torrent and watched it.It will definitely compel ask to raise questions about US military action even since World War II.

There were only one or two senators who were against the US President's decision to declare war against Vietnam and Iraq that this Documentary has shown.

Excellent work by Sean Penn and Fellow Members.

Cheers!
