A Film By Robert Greenwald
From the Site, "Iraq For Sale: The War Profiteers"
"The story of what happens to everyday Americans when corporations go to war.
Acclaimed director Robert Greenwald (Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, Outfoxed, and Uncovered) takes you inside the lives of soldiers, truck drivers, widows and children who have been changed forever as a result of profiteering in the reconstruction of Iraq. Iraq for Sale uncovers the connections between private corporations making a killing in Iraq and the decision makers who allow them to do so."
If you want to know why we're really in Iraq, watch this clip. Then go to the website, "Iraq For Sale", and buy the DVD. Show it to everyone you can, particularly those family and friends who might still believe we're there to "spread Democracy", (like Democracy is the latest tasty spread from the cream cheese people!).
That, friends, is the truth, the ugly, horrible truth, told by everyday Americans and war heroes who have been there, done that and have the tee-shirt! No Republi-con arguments can dispute their honest, heart-wrenching testimony.
Now get to work! We have our country to save!

This is going to get very interesting!
