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
Didn't any of you people that think this movie is something other than Hitlerian propaganda notice that there was never any mention of the enemy's brutality against civilians? Especially the brutality of the communists in Vietnam? Wow.
In Vietnam the Ho Chi Minh regime murdered over 100,000 fellow Vietnamese, including fellow communists who didn't accommodate Ho's party line. And once the war was over the North Vietnamese communists murdered and imprisoned their fellow communists in South Vietnam, the Viet Cong.
The South Vietnamese people loved the Americans and hated the communists and the Soviets who occupied Vietnam after the war ended.
The American military performed in Vietnam as well as the American military performed in World War II.
Anyone who takes Sean Penn seriously has no contact with reality.
