Plot Summary
This documentary from Robert Greenwald argues that corporations have made a fortune from the Iraq War. After purchasing influence in the halls of Congress, private interests such as Halliburton have been awarded lucrative no-bid contracts. Meanwhile, on the ground, these corporations employ questionable practices that endanger the lives of both American soldiers and Iraqis. The film asks the question, when war becomes a business, what incentive is there to end it?
