Last week the blog-osphere went batcrap crazy because of a AP report that Iran would be doing self-inspections of the nuke facilities…..bloggers lost their minds and accused everyone from Obama to a 2nd grade school teacher for this outrage.
I posted that it was a lie…..few believed what I wrote and even fewer would check out the sources that I gave them on the Iranian deal so they could read the deal for themselves…..
Although that report was a flash in the pan and the media and bloggers have moved on….simply because they could not get more hate or use of the story…….
But I am still trying to get people to read the information out there…..I am afraid that lies are believed we will once again be invading a country that does not need to be done so…..
Am I alone? Or do Americans truly want to be the next “imperialistic” power?
How the AP Got the Iran Inspections Story Wrong.
We Americans have heard all the horror stories about the lies that lead to the 2003 invasion of Iraq…….all the back door moves and all the misinformation….
The Bushites went to the Hill and made the case that No one could resist for the overthrow of Saddam…..of course there was the infamous WMDs…..that did not exist……then there was the ‘mushroom’ cloud analogy that Repubs are always pushing……all in all a beautiful package of lies……and off the country went to….do or die. And 14 years later we are still paying for the lies.
But was there more to the invasion than we have been told? Did AIPAC and Israel have any hand in the decision to invade?
Just a little FYI……………
AIPAC’s 2001-2004 ‘Briefing Book’ Made Case for Regime Change In Iraq « LobeLog.
Now that the full court press is on….Israel has pulled out NO stops to beat back the deal…….their paid politicians are working overtime to please their masters……
The problem I have is that some of the stuff I hear is just garbage………the same garbage that I have been hearing for at least a decade…….
There are lies and then there are goddamn LIES….and Israel is a master of the later……

When I saw the title of this piece my first thought was….REALLY? Could colleges really be that hard up for teachers that they must turn to these dicks?
My have times have changed! When I was at university we were taught the pursuit of truth was the only calling……
Now we have a group teaching our young about the lies that was the 2003 invasion of Iraq……maybe it will illustrate how NOT to start a war…..we can only hope that students will see through their blatant attempts to re-write history and the lies they told to get Americans killed.
I wish I was younger…..I would be their worst nightmare in class…….pathetic what they are offering as TRUTH!
Former Bush officials teaching course on Iraq War ‘decision-making’ | TheHill.
You read it right! I am pressing something from a conservative magazine.
We were scared into supporting a war in 2003 that did NOT need to be fought. That game is being played again…….the media is doing all it possibly can to scare the American people into yet another ill fated war in Iraq.
The last line of the piece says it all……… “All Americans should be aware and suspicious of again being panicked into supporting more wars”
Good advice that we ALL should heed!.
The New Lie About Iraq | The American Conservative.
It has begun! The media sideshow…..the media circus that we lovingly call our election process……
If you are a conservative then you will be bombarded with the promise of a “limited government”……that evil brought to you by those no good liberals…..
Guess what! That “limited government” is a pipe dream….a slogan for the mindless to nod in approval…..as government is today…you will NEVER have that elusive fantasy of a “limited government”…….

I waited a couple of days top see how many people would take the time to remember the 19th of March……as I figured it came and went and NO one cared! Instead they spent their time on some moronic e-mail scam or whether or not a new AG will get her vote……..
What the Hell am I going on about, right?
19 March 2003 US invaded Iraq for the second time in less than 15 years…….
