President Trump claims trade wars are easy to win. So far he has demonstrated they are easy to start. It remains to be seen how they will end. It is also easy to start military wars, as presidents from LBJ to George W. Bush have shown. Based on Norman Solomon's revealing book, the documentary film War Made Easy reaches into the Orwellian memory hole to expose a 50-year pattern of government deception and media spin that has dragged the United States into one war after another from Vietnam to Iraq. And we haven’t won any of them.

Narrated by actor and activist Sean Penn, War Made Easy exhumes remarkable archival footage of official distortion and exaggeration, revealing in stunning detail how the American news media have uncritically disseminated the pro-war messages of successive presidential administrations. Will we ever learn?
