Movie Info

Join documentary filmmaker Robert Greenwald (Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, Outfoxed) in assessing the damage done to average Americans when corporations decide to wage war. For critics of the current administration, the connection between the war in Iraq and the private corporations who profit from the fighting is plain to see. For those who may not be so easily convinced, however, Greenwald and company not only explore the questionable motivations of the corporate decision-makers whose wartime profiteering has affected the lives of countless soldiers and their families, but also the increasingly negative international reputation of the United States as a result.

In 75 harrowing minutes, Greenwald spells out why the war has been, for this administration and its friends, a windfall no matter which side claims victory and how many Americans and Iraqi civilians die.

If Greenwald can sneak this onto the air in place of this week's Desperate Housewives, we might start to see some changes around here.

... Iraq for Sale has an us-versus-them sensibility that's extremely effective.

Whatever you might think about the centrality of the profit motive to our society, what's going on in Iraq is going to give you pause.
