The uncomfortable truth on a low, low budget.
16 July 2006 | by (Auckland, NZ) – See all my reviews

This documentary was made on a low budget by husband and wife team who have made some of the connections that regularly get left out of most of the mainstream media. The reality is that because of the embargo the US/UK were closed out of any possible deals on the oil post the embargo and that is why they needed to invade - for commercial advantage to one up the French and Russians who had developed relationships already.

Yes some of us know about this - but most of the time the uncomfortable links are left out as being too hard.

The key points for me were at the beginning of the invasion when the U.S had a chance to win hearts & minds by securing water, power and law and order but were so fixated by oil they just decided to ignore the civil needs.

There is nuclear related material on the loose because they didn't even secure the nuclear facilities.

We do need oil - but more importantly we need the truth. Thanks to this team we have some more of the facts with which we at least can have some hope.
