Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

Here's something that should be shown in every history class in junior high school -- a video representing every war that America's been in from WWII to present day... using food.

In this video by Stefan Nadelman titled Food Fight (what else?), food represents various countries. 

Burgers, chicken nuggets, and chicken sandwiches are the U.S.; matzo is Israel; Bratwurst and pretzels are Germany; kebabs are Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan; fish and chips are England; sushi is Japan; kimchee is Korea; and a Cuban sandwich is, well... Cuba.

Watch the film, which took three months to make, and learn a delicious history lesson. (Note: All food was eaten by the filmmaker and his dog.)

Watch food fight after the jump:

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
