War Made Easy reaches into the Orwellian memory hole to expose a 50-year pattern of government deception and media spin that has dragged the United States into one war after another from Vietnam to Iraq. Narrated by actor and activist Sean Penn, the film exhumes remarkable archival footage of official distortion and exaggeration from LBJ to George W. Bush, revealing in stunning detail how the American news media have uncritically disseminated the pro-war messages of successive presidential administrations. Written by
WAR MADE EASY is a short, but powerful look at how media pundits, government officials, policy makers, and pressure groups, working in conjunction with a fawning and compliant Free Press, have conjured up a belligerent American foreign policy of Orwellian dimensions. For over a half century Americans have been duped again and again about the real reasons for the deployment of US forces. And, immediately after the first shot is fired, the film demonstrates how all opposition is silenced or marginalized by calculated misdirection and pro-war manipulation. Norman Solomon (narration by Sean Penn) presents a well reasoned and fully documented point of view, chock full of historical references. WAR MADE EASY begs to be shown in a classroom.
