    One thought on “War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death”

    1. This is not a feel good book As the title implies, the book details many of the times that government officials have lied to the American people in order to gain support for their war plans It isn t pleasant to think that our leaders lie to us it seems like something that only happens in other countries but it is an ugly truth that we should know about.We already know about many of the lies surrounding the Vietnam war and the recent Iraq war, but the book also details lies surrounding the invasi [...]

    2. I must stress that this book is, basically, preaching to the converted insofar as anyone who believes the US goes to war too easily will love it, while those who think US All the Way will barely get by the prologue However, the book has some great insights into how the United States packages its war for mass consumption how we are usually the aggressor but claim otherwise how we gather evidence and then when its proven wrong pretend like we never meant it in the first place, and how no matter wh [...]

    3. This book is about how to spot a propaganda campaign and differentiate it from news No wonder at first I disliked it, since I had just been Marxist Leninist ed into last century.I was thinking I might not want to mention I had this book at all, since I did not like it on face value, but then I decided, I can t fill with only my 4 and 5 star adoration reviews if I want to be regarded as an honest reader, as everyone has likes and dislikes There s little I can do about my fixations on certain auth [...]

    4. Goering once said The people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders and this book shows how right he was Taking just the period from the 1960 s to the present, Solomon shows how Presidents and the government lie to the people and manipulate the data in order to get the country to go to war Newspapers are also complicit, parroting administration lies instead of doing real, investigative journalism They assist in downplaying the realities of war calling civilian casualties collater [...]

    5. This book really laid it out and spelled out how sometimes President in conjunction with the media and Congress put their spin when it comes to going to war It clearly shows that when a President is bound and determined to go to war for various reasons, that there is nothing stopping them unless the key advisors and members of Congress raise enough questions.

    6. Sample quote As an astute cliche says, truth is the first casualty of war But another early casualty is conscience Conscience is not on the military s radar screen, and it s not on our television screen But government officials and media messages do not define the limits and possibilities of conscience We do.

    7. This is definitely a preaching to the choir book But I completely enjoyed reading it I have to remember Vietnam was 45 years ago so it might be a bit over covered here But the story is probably not familiar to the new generations and it is repeated here fairly well.

    8. An insightful, well written tour of the pattern of presidential war deceptions over the past few decades If you can t read the book get the film documentary with the same name.

    9. This is a good solid read about how the Media and the U.S government come together to sell the american people wars.Go to you tube and type in war made easy part 2 excellent little video there.

    10. Because of our leaders and pundits propensity to lie we have a problem When nothing need be proven, then no war need be justified, ahead of time or later on Power is a great aphrodisiac.
