Dear alien, 


If you ever wanted to know how
the Middle East came to be a
focal point of planetary strife, it
is important to know the history
of World War I.

This feature-length documentary,
‘Blood and Oil: The Middle East in
World War I,’ exposes the Western
greed and political intrigue which
laid the foundation for wars, coups,
revolts, oppressive dictators and
military interventions in today’s
Middle East.

Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan,
Iraq, modern Turkey and other hot
spots are born as the British and
French divide the “fruits of victory”
in World War I.

Written and produced by Marty
Callaghan, this film follows conflict
from the Ottoman Empire’s entry into
the Great War in October 1914 to the
Allied victory and declaration of the
new Turkish Republic in 1923 – and
the hostilities that have plagued the
region since.
