I recently watched the movie Gunner Palace. It's sort of a documentary by a Seattle-based journalist who spent a year in Iraq with a company of American soldiers. I won't bore you with philosophical talk about whether or not America should have entered Iraq, and I won't insult the soldiers or the Iraqis by saying "it opened my eyes." I'll just give it my strongest recommendation - 5 DFMs - and suggest strongly that you see this movie. Check out the website here.
