The following exchange was made between CPNN and the author of "How to Jump Start Your War", Alain Gorg:
I have a question for you. The video makes the point that wars are begun by staging fake provocations. The cases for Poland, Vietnam and Iraq are clear. That of Korea is not clear in the film. Can you clarify this?
Poland was staged, but Vietnam, Iraq, and Korea were not staged, but rather, created out of vague evidence.
In Korea, there were continuous little provocations back and forth until the North chose to magnify one as the provocation justifying invasion of the South, not so big as the supposed provocations in Iraq and Vietname and Poland, but from a more real basis in fact.
You are correct. This video is created to provoke thought and discussion and is simplified, is satire, is not a documentary, but has a real thread of truth.
The video is not put forth as a great work of film art, but rather an effort to present important insight into history that I could not find anywhere, so I felt somebody needed to do it. I chose to use satire in an effort to make this video about war and mass death more bearable for the audience.
