Insightful article Chris. I’ve run across quite a few interesting things in the last few years dealing with the more general questions of why Americans seem to love war so much. Despite otherwise ideological differences, warmongering seems to be an enthusiastically bipartisan affliction. Here are a few resources I’ve found especially enlightening & helpful…


Eugene Jarecki’s award winning 2005 documentary, “Why We Fight” is excellent, places a heavy emphasis on the War on Iraq, and can be watched on YouTube in its entirety;


“Is America Addicted to War?” Foreign Policy Magazine


General Smedley Butler, USMC, and one of the most decorated general officers ever to serve in the US military, wrote the renowned classic, “War is a Racket” in 1933:

US Military and Clandestine Operations in Foreign Countries -[masked]:
