Hidden Wars of Desert Storm - Audrey Brohy & Gerald Ungerman

The film is a documentary on the first gulf war and the aftermath. It might have been good if it simply focused on the problems of embargoes that keep medicine from Iraqi children or on the dangers of depleted uranium munitions (two of its biggest issues). Instead it talked vaguely of American conspiracies to plunge the Near East into war for the purpose of killing Americans and increasing the price of oil (yes, you read that correctly). The film relies on sensational images of dieing kids, testimony of men like Chalabi (the man that convinced the second Bush administration to invade Iraq), and half explained arguments. Even if the authors can't make up their minds (embargoes are either a non-violent way to fight dictators or it helps prop them up, it can't be both) they shouldn't worry: It's all America's fault.
