The West Hartford Citizens for Peace and Justice will show the documentary film “Why We Fight” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 6. The 2005 film by Eugene Jarecki documents the rise and maintenance of the purported United States military-industrial complex. It alleges that every decade since World War II, the American public has been told a lie to bring it into war to fuel the military-economic machine, which in turn maintains American dominance in the world. It includes interviews with John McCain, Chalmers Johnson, Richard Perle, William Kristol, Gore Vidal and Joseph Cirincione. The film will be shown at St. James Episcopal Church, 1018 Farmington Ave., West Hartford. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the film will begin at 7 p.m. followed by discussion. Admission is free and open to the public.
