the General and his Bells (2007)

In 2007, when this film was produced, 4 years had passed since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. The invasion was justified by the “fact” that Iraq was in possession of weapons of mass destruction – an assumption which today has been declared false. The invasion was promoted as a necessary evil in the War on Terror – but who can really win a war against fear?
