We will watch "Why we Fight". Not a simple topic by any means but certainly worth examining and learning about.
Join us for this documentary and discussion on the origins of the "military industrial complex" and the affects in America's policies regarding making war, most recently the Iraq war and what is termed "the Bush doctrine" that includes pre-emptive strikes. Read on for more details and trailer. We do hope you will join us for the film.

Why we Fight film synopsis:
"He may have been the ultimate icon of 1950s conformity and postwar complacency, but Dwight D. Eisenhower was an iconoclast, visionary, and the Cassandra of the New World Order. Upon departing his presidency, Eisenhower issued a stern, cogent warning about the burgeoning "military industrial complex," foretelling with ominous clarity the state of the world in 2004 with its incestuous entanglement of political, corporate, and Defense Department interests."
