Why We Fight ( visu )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,684 libraries worldwide
Au lendemain de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, l'industrie militaire américaine a connu un développement fulgurant. À tel point que dans son discours d'adieu en 1961, le président Dwight Eisenhower a mis en garde ses concitoyens contre l'influence de cette économie de la logique guerrière, qui menaçait de saper le pouvoir de l'État. Prenant appui sur une abondance d'images d'archives et de témoignages de gens de toutes les allégeances politiques, ce documentaire illustre la clairvoyance de ce discours dont l'actuelle guerre en Irak constitue l'aboutissement. Déclenché sous de faux prétextes, ce conflit alimente en effet une industrie florissante dont les politiciens doivent absolument tenir compte s'ils désirent être réélus
