									                                      "Why We Fight"

The purpose of the film is to question the motives for U.S. involvement in foreign conflicts,
specifically Iraq. At the end of the documentary you will compose a short one-page essay
response to the following question: According to the film's producers and the other sources
including: "The Role of the U.S. in a Changing World" and "War is Peace," why did the
United States choose to go to war in Iraq, and how were the American people convinced of
the necessity? Bonus: What does this say about American foreign policy? You will be
allowed to use your notes on the writing assignment.

Some ideas for note-taking on the film:
    Propaganda and the fear of 9/11
    Osama Bin Laden/ Al-Qaeda
    Saddam Hussein and Iraq
    nuclear weapons
    The Project for the New American Century
    The Military/Industrial complex
    The Bush Doctrine of preemption
