The World Without US - "Why we fight?"
I was a bit apprehensive about this film since it seemed to be such "one of a kind" so I had a look at their website before ordering. Read more
The trailer I saw really got my interest, the premise seemed to be so interesting and so timely for our nation. It reminded me a lot of another film, called "Why we fight?" (very popular about 2 years ago) trying to answer the same question, what is the purpose of the US meddling in the entire world?
While "Why we fight" was a bit of a disappointment, this film really delivered on the promise. After the first twenty minutes you figure that the director is working an angle on the debate, but what I really liked is that he is building a really logical, coherent argument that I could follow from one end to another. And he surely supports it with footage from around the world.
I also liked the fact that it was more than an intellectual exercise. The film had some very touching personal stories that I didn't expect in a "geo-political" documentary. It made it one of those films that you still think about the second day after you saw it.
As a minus, I wish the film makers also investigated some other regions also, say, South America or Africa... but I guess there is only so much time...
A much needed world view
Mitch Anderson has performed a great service by focusing on the strategic signifance of the U.S. military in the world today. Read more
His choice of Niall Ferguson as the leading voice adds greatly to the film for there is no other who commands such a clear vision of the world situation of today. This is an excellent video that covers an issue revelant to world peace that everyone needs to view.
An incredible look
This film is a journey across multiple continents which asks the question "What would the world be like without a US military presence". Read more
It is a compelling look at how other countries view the United States and what the realities of the US presence around the world actually are. Thoroughly enjoyable!
