Inspired by Dwight Eisenhower's legendary farewell speech (in which he coined the phrase 'military industrial complex'), filmmaker Jarecki surveys the scorched landscape of a half-century's military adventures, asking how and telling why a nation of, by, and for the people has become the savings-and-loan of a system whose survival depends on a state of constant war.

"Why We Fight" moves beyond the headlines of various American military operations to the deeper questions of why, why does America fight? What are the forces; political, economic, and ideological, that drive them to fight against an ever-changing enemy?
