The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara
"In the first message, Khrushchev said this: "We and you ought not to pull on the ends of a rope which you have tied the knots of war.
Because the more the two of us pull, the tighter the knot will be tied. And then it will be necessary to cut that knot, and what that would mean is not for me to explain to you.
I have participated in two wars and know that war ends when it has rolled through cities and villages, everywhere sowing death and destruction...
For such is the logic of war. If people do not display wisdom, they will clash like blind moles and then mutual annihilation will commence." Nikita Krushev (the soft message)
"you lost one wing man, but we destroyed Tokyo..." General Curtis LeMay
'never answer the question asked, always answer the question you wish you had been asked. I followed this as a rule... Robert Strange McNamara
It is the story of America as seen through the eyes of the former Secretary of Defense (and war criminal), Robert S. McNamara. One of the most controversial and influential figures in world politics, he takes us on an insider's view of the seminal events of the 20th Century. Why was this past Century the most destructive and deadly in all of human history? Are we doomed to repeat our mistakes? Are we free to make choices, or are we at the mercy of inexorable historical forces and ideologies?
From the firebombing of 100,000 Japanese civilians in Tokyo in 1945 to the brink of nuclear catastrophe during the Cuban missile crisis to the devastating effects of the Vietnam War, The Fog of War examines the psychology and reasoning of the government decision-makers who send men to war. How were decisions made and for what reason? What can we learn from these historical events?
As American forces occupy Iraq and the possibility of additional military conflict looms large, The Fog of War is essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand how the American government justifies the use of military force. Combining extraordinary archival footage, recreations, newly declassified White House recordings, and an original score by the Oscar nominated composer, Philip Glass, the film is a disquieting and powerful essay on war, rationality, and human nature.
