5 Films That Help Balance Out the US Iraq War Propaganda k so it’s no secret that I am anti-war. I absolutely believe that diplomacy is always the best option. I am enough of a realist to know that when diplomacy simply does not work then it’s time to look at military options. But, it’s imperative that military force be the last resort and that it be used in accordance with international laws and treaties. It’s also no secret that I think George Bush was the most disastrous thing to happen to this country since the Great Depression. But regardless of your feelings about Bush or the Iraq War the plain fact is that the war was based on lies, and he put our soldiers at great physical harm and endangered the people of Iraq based on lies to serve his own personal agenda. In this country we get a biased view of the Iraq War, usually peppered with a lot of patriotic BS to hide the real facts of the war. These films tell another side of the story and show not only the facts that have been kept hidden from many US citizens but the heart breaking reality of the human cost of the war. Are they biased? Of course they are. Every piece of film, every piece of journalistic writing, every podcast will always have the point of view of the author. But if you look at media that shows both sides you can extrapolate the truth of the situation, which is usually somewhere in the middle, after seeing both. So I think that everyone should see these movies to help them get an accurate view of the Iraq War.
