The Fog Of War



The Fog of War is a 20th century fable, a story of an American dreamer who rose from humble origins to the heights of political power. Robert S. McNamara was both witness to and participant in many of the crucial events of the 20th century: the crippling Depression of the 1930s; the industrialization of the war years; the development of a different kind of warfare based on air power and the creation of a new American meritocracy. He was also an idealist who saw his dreams and ideals challenged by the role he played in history. 2003 Sony Pictures Classics Inc. All Rights Reserved.

    While admiring a building on Pennsylvania Ave in 1970, I discovered Robert Strange listening to a GI in fatigues and hippy gear talking his head off, Bob seemingly in agreement smiling and shaking his head. If I had screamed "say something!", would he have joined with Daniel Ellsberg and tried to stop the war sooner? Was he more of a follower than a leader?

    I'ts easy for me to judge, but I also know it would be impossible for me to have to function in such a capacity.

    i never thought for one minute this doc would resonate with me, however it, did, he did, at the end he states that nobody understands him and that if answer a question it cannot just be answered without consequences and I AGREE. You see hardly anyone understands what you are saying or trying to say they keep what they want to bout their beliefs and this is a huge issue " What we have here is failure to communicate" really its what we have here is failure to listen and try to understand what someone is trying to say without adding your own SUBJECTIVE AGENDA. BRAVO.

    Anytime I hear Johnson speak, all I can think of is Frank Underwood. Aside from that, LeMay was a psychopath who should have been tried as a war criminal. In the end, I respect McNamara though. For all his mistakes, he learned from them and didn't seem to be a truly active participant in war crimes. He has pushed for less war and helping impoverished countries.

    I seem to recall a slightly different version of this vid where McNamara said something about how he couldn't address certain questions on Vietnam because of national security, and also in which he spoke of his work with the World Bank.  Either I missed these things or it isn't here.  In any case, he was a truly brilliant person, although his greatest wisdom appears to have come from hindsight.
