John Pilger – The War You Don’t See John Pilger says in the film: “We journalists… have to be brave enough to defy those who seek our collusion in selling their latest bloody adventure in someone else’s country… That means always challenging the official story, however patriotic that story may appear, however seductive and insidious it is. For propaganda relies on us in the media to aim its deceptions not at a far away country but at you at home… In this age of endless imperial war, the lives of countless men, women and children depend on the truth or their blood is on us… Those whose job it is to keep the record straight ought to be the voice of people, not power.”
Pity the imperialists. They’re damned if they do, and they’e damned if they don’t. Pity the American people even more — they’re the ones who will ultimately pay the price of all this imperial folly.
