Interesting documentary with the usual Leftist colour.
4 October 2018 | by BBogusSee all my reviews

Completely agree with review given by jimlacy2003. Also find it typical to blame Reagan while it was all started during Kennedy, but hey he is a democrat and can only be the good guy (the Vietnam war was also started during his era).
