Dirty Wars, which was released in 2013, is one of the best documentary films that you cannot ignore at all. There are so many great things that you can find when you watch the film, which can be like the unpredictable facts relate to what really happened during the wars by the army of the United States of America. Aside of that, it will also offer you the notable visualization that was created based on the book of Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield by Jeremy Scahill. Then, that is the main reason why the writer of the book was getting involved in the scenario making process along with David Riker.
Well, the film will tell you the story about Jeremy Scahill, who was a journalist, when he traveled Somalia, Yemen, and Afghanistan, and so many other countries where the United States did its War on Terror military action. Then, he actually found out so many interesting things that everybody does not know during his travel. It began when he investigated the United States government and military in Afghanistan. He really wanted to find out why the military and the government really wanted to cover up the death of five civilians including two pregnant women. All of them were killed by the United States soldier from Joint Special Operation Command (JSOC). So then, he continued interviewing JSOC and any other sides that might be involved, including the Senator of United States, Ron Wyden.
Furthermore, he even never stopped his adventure in Yemen when he investigated the assassinations of Anwar al-Awlaki and his son Abdulrahman al-Awlaki. He even met their family in order to get the truth he always wanted. Not only that, he also discussed about Abdulelah Haider Shaye who was a Yemeni journalist that reported the American Drone Strikes. However, the weird thing happened when the journalist was detained and sentenced on a terrorism charge after sharing the report he had made. Moreover, all of the things that he experienced during the travel to the conflicting countries somehow made him realize that it would only make the radicalization of Muslims. It means that the war would never really solve the terrorism related problems that the world had to face. Even, it could make everything worse and worse because wars would spread hates and misery only.
In addition to this, you have to make sure that you never miss to watch this film as it will allow you to reveal several things about the dirty wars that the United States has been doing all this time.
