George W. Bush: ‘Starting Wars In Middle East Good For The Economy’
Take a wild guess who convinced George W. Bush that starting wars in the Middle East would be “good for the economy”? Oliver Stone interviewed former Argentina president Néstor Kirchner for Oliver Stone’s new documentary, “South of the Border”, in theatres June 2010. There’s a revolution underway in South America, but most of the world doesn’t know it. Oliver Stone sets out on a road trip across five countries to explore the social and political movements as well as the mainstream media’s misperception of South America while interviewing seven of its elected presidents. In casual conversations with Presidents Hugo Chávez (Venezuela), Evo Morales (Bolivia), Lula da Silva (Brazil), Cristina Kirchner (Argentina), as well as her husband and ex-President Nėstor Kirchner, Fernando Lugo (Paraguay), Rafael Correa (Ecuador), and Raúl Castro (Cuba), Stone gains unprecedented access and sheds new light upon the exciting transformations in the region.
