Overview

No End in Sight

On March 19, 2003, forces from the United States and a handful of allied nations invaded Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein from power. American military leaders expected the conflict to last no more than a few months, and President George W. Bush declared that major military operations were over less than two months later. However, Iraq soon became a dangerous quagmire for American forces, and near the end of 2006, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, one of the key architects of America's strategy in Iraq, resigned from office due to public outcry and Bush declared he was "rethinking" his plan of attack in Iraq as the nation sank into civil war, with U.S. troops the frequent targets of attacks on both sides. How and why did America's leaders decide to invade Iraq? How did they formulate a strategy that went so far wrong? And can anything be done to salvage the situation? Filmmaker Charles Ferguson, a former advisor with the Brookings Institution, examines these questions in No End in Sight, a documentary on the War in Iraq which includes interviews with a number of figures involved in the conflict's decision-making process, some speaking on-camera about the war for the first time. No End in Sight was screened in competition at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.

The documentary movie is a stunner from Charles Ferguson that goes into details on the misses on Iraq's war and provides a reasoning on the Iraq's current state of affairs. One thing I would say is that if one combines Inexperience/Incompetency with Arrogance on serious matters then surely there would be disastrous consequences for everyone. The disappointing aspect is to see how people could get away after splashing the things ... A must see movie to understand the current affairs in Iraq ...

This documentary was very well made, and I'm surprised it didn't get more attention. Hearing from people who were on the inside, from the beginning, of this war made me scared of how decisions are made in our government. There were people who knew where this war was going, and what the best approach might be, and yet all that seemed swept aside. We still trying to untangle the mess WE created... for shame.
