“Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away?!”
Srsly? On the anniversary of the US bombing Hiroshima (Happy Birthday LMT) making it the only nation (yet) to use nuclear weapons Bush leads the way to stop Iran having nuclear power and criticises China’s human rights while his gulag uses a kangaroo military court to convict a chauffeur of his employer’s crimes. An employer (and fellow multi-millionaire feckless playboy) previously trained and funded by…the US, who in the guise of the Bush Whitehouse made sure to ignore numerous warnings of the attack. All the while the stories of how the Bush regime fabricated the WMD lies to invade Iraq and kill 1 million people are being studiously ignored by the Olympics obsessed media, not to mention the anthrax shenanigans. And yeah Tony where’s your answer to this-
SUSKIND: What we now know from this investigation is that a secret mission was conducted in which a British manager, intelligence agent, met with the head of Iraqi intelligence in a secret location in Amman, Jordan. And what the Iraqi intelligence chief told the British-and essentially the Americans, because we’re all in this together-is that there were no WMD in Iraq.
Now of course there is a very, very basic reason why we know that they knew there were no WMD in Iraq and thus were lying- You don’t attack countries that have WMD- it’s honestly that simple, because if a nation has WMD any attack fails within the first hour as tens of thousands of your forces are killed with a few deployed weapons. That’s it, it’s like Catch 22, we know they have no WMD’s so we can attack but to get the public support for a war crime of aggression we market the spectre of our enemy/target having WMD’s. It was the lie they could agree upon. And France took an active role in the murder of almost 1 million Rwandans, y’know like we’re taking an active role in the murder of even more Iraqis. Clearly we think of ourselves like Brad and Angelina, gorgeous and philanthropic, swanning around the place bringing joy and happiness, while the majority of the world from whence our riches are taken under arms probably still wake up screaming over the monsters that any minute might concoct a new rationale (Freedom & Democracy ™) for coming over and stealing more shit.
