American Voices On The War 2008 03 15 (Al-Jazeera, SoS) avi
(Original Title-The War in America)
In a presidential election year and around the fifth anniversary of the country's invasion of Iraq, Al Jazeera's War in America film looks at the current mood in the US surrounding American involvement in Iraq.
Produced by Al Jazeera's Abdallah el-Binni and Abdeddayem Samari, the programme offers an insight into the intensity and suspicion currently shaping American opinions to the conflict, and addresses issues that are never going to be far from the electoral agenda.
Five years on, the conflict has been longer and bloodier than many people expected and some polls show a majority of Americans now oppose the war in Iraq.
More than 3,900 US soldiers have been killed in Iraq since March 2003 and an estimated 29,000 wounded.
It is estimated the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost US taxpayers about $610 billion since September 11, 2001.
Al Jazeera spoke to anti-war protestors; grieving mothers who have lost their sons; psychologists; human rights lawyers and the architect of the term "axis of evil" who still supports the war in Iraq.
