Poll question: Why We Fight
Advertisements [?]
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, aka mothercorp aka CBC has just broadcast "Why We Fight" the film by Eugene Jarecki. During the commercials I surfed around and found some interesting information.

From IMDB

He may have been the ultimate icon of 1950s conformity and postwar complacency, but Dwight D. Eisenhower was an iconoclast, visionary, and the Cassandra of the New World Order. Upon departing his presidency, Eisenhower issued a stern, cogent warning about the burgeoning "military industrial complex," foretelling with ominous clarity the state of the world in 2004 with its incestuous entanglement of political, corporate, and Defense Department interests.

From Rotten Tomatoes, the numbers are abysmal
NUMBERS
Box Office: $1,146,841
VHS Rentals: $600,000

The IMDB comments contained surprisingly few from the US.

I'm not sure that it could be broadcast in the US.

So, the question; havew you seen this film?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.
