Errol Morrisï¿ 1/2 1/2(TM)s film, The Fog of War, is a gripping documentary that is, and likely will be, relevant for many years to come. Both Errol Morris and Robert McNamara agree throughout the film that the use of nuclear weapons used on nations by nations is an act that we as a species can never come back from. With regular war, we are able to pick ourselves up off the floor afterwards and learn from the inevitable mistakes that are made. With nuclear war however, the fallout will be catastrophic; so much so, that there will be no saving us. Very few people today really weigh the consequences of how the events of nuclear warfare will affect us for generations to come, a sentiment shared by McNamara, When he claims that ï¿ 1/2 1/2the combination of human infallibility and nuclear weapons will destroy nations.ï¿ 1/2 1/2ï¿ 1/2Â?
In the film, McNamara discusses his opinions on the Vietnam War and how close we as a nation came to full blown nuclear war, due to simple misunderstandings on both sides. With the Vietnamese waging civil war, believing that the US has come to interject themselves where they donï¿ 1/2 1/2(TM)t belong, and the US believing that the Vietnamese are fighting Russian communism, as well as both sides toting and threatening nuclear weapons, the threat of annihilation loomed over the world, with everyone of either side believing what they wanted to believe. The ultimate question the film addresses is how much evil do we have to do before doing a certain amount of good.
