The movie "Why We Fight"

The movie "Why We Fight" portrays a major reason why America has been involved in a great number of wars in the recent century. From the Vietnam war to the current Iraq war, we are always involved in some military actions. Throughout America's early history there were not any standing army. Many of the founding fathers distrusted standing armies. However, after world war two and the rise of soviet communism led to a permanent military of the United States. in the movie it portrays how the military industrial complex dominates American policies. The MIC and it wanted to derive profit can be seen as major reason why we see an increasing tension and war around the world, especially in the middle east.
