Documentary --"Myths for Profit": Canada's Role In Industries of War and Peace

Although this "Myths for Profit"documentary is about Canadians being brainwashed into believing myths about it's military involvements, the issues also directly apply to the US and most of the countries in Europe.

The film is a hard look at the differences between the propaganda we are being sold about "humanitarian interventions" and "peacekeeping and development", verses the reality of who is really getting rich off of our military and supposed democracy-building assistance.

A free, online 10 minute trailer for Myths for Profit is available here. and a pre-order of the entire film is also available on the site. I encourage a purchase of the film to fund screenings of the film in more cities and increase publicity for it.
