Oliver Stone’s two films here are brilliant in themselves and for me particularly interesting because they are about power using war as a means to securing power – war is politics by others means. Oliver Stone deals with the presence of war as a machiavellian means to the ends of power.

John F. Kennedy wanted to export America’s cultural power – not extend the pax americana, the maintenance of peace via the threat & use of America’s military forces.
