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. In this clip, Terry Jones talks about the issues surrounding the war in Iraq that made it impossible for him to stay silent. Terry's on the program tonight.

In this clip, Terry talks about...

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."
