The Oil Factor Documentary (90 min)

From the makers of "Hidden Wars of Desert Storm" & "Plan Colombia"

Free-Will Productions presents

THE OIL FACTOR : Behind the War on Terror (90 min)

While the world is focused on terror, did you know that:

* at the current production rate, North America and Western Europe will run out of oil in 2010?

* One million U.S. military personnel are deployed overseas near oil fields and oil routes?

* The U.S. military deployment in Afghanistan and Central Asia blocks China and Russia from accessing oil and natural gas they desperately need for their economies?

Dick Cheney claims that "the American way of life is not negotiable". The real question becomes: is invading foreign countries the acceptable way to ensure that the average American can go on consuming 4 times more energy than the average European or 32 times more energy than the average African? With the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, Islamic fundamentalists are recruiting more than ever and acts of terrorism have actually increased around the world.

After spending three months in Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan, Free-Will Productions' Gerard Ungerman and Audrey Brohy assess the results of the U.S. attacks on Iraq and Afghanistan. They expose the human cost and examine the bigger geo-strategic picture of these invasions that may lead the world toward the next global conflict.

"THE OIL FACTOR: Behind the War on Terror" is filled with solid facts and figures, clear, illustrative maps, original footage shot in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as interviews with such personalities as Zbigniew Brzezinski, Noam Chomsky, The Project for the New American Century Director Gary Schmitt, best-seller "Taliban" author Ahmed Rashid and the Pentagon's Karen Kwiatkowski. It's a must-see for anyone who wants to fill in the blanks with what is really at stake with today's "war-on-terror" and convince family and friends that another four years of such war may NOT be in our best interests.
