Terry Jones on the Need to Respond to War

After his Python days were behind him, Terry Jones became an avid historian -- a pursuit that ultimately led him to write a fairly scathing book on 9/11 and the events that followed it.

Who promotes war
"It's always been the people who profit out of war -- even in the Middle Ages, it was the people who were making money out of war who actually promoted war. That's what's happening now. It's the arms industry that's promoting the war, because they've got a cozy relationship with the politicians."
