I am talking about the mash up to the invasion of Iraq.
Recall all the news about WMDs and yellow cake uranium….the false narrative that Iraq was somehow involved in the 9/11 attacks……all propaganda to justify invading a sovereign country…..in this case Iraq.
They were making a case for invasion as they did in the 1990’s and the fist Gulf War. If you recall back then it was babies left on the floor of a Kuwati hospital so the Iraqis could steal medical equipment…again that never occurred.
Again making a case for justification for invasion.
I bring up a little history because I think they are at it again……this time in Syria.
In a recent press conference Spicer had a bombshell (no pun intended) to drop…..
Raising speculation that the US is about to attack Syria again, the White House has issued a statement late this evening accusing the Assad government in Syria of conducting “potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack,” claiming that such an attack would involve the “mass murder of civilians, including innocent children.”
The late night report was extremely light on details, but threatened to make Syria’s government and military “pay a heavy price,” suggesting that the statement was only issued to lay the groundwork for a new round of US attacks on Syrian government targets.
The US last attacked Syria in earnest in early April, firing 49 cruise missiles at a Syrian air base. The attack was carried out despite reports ultimately showing that the US intelligence community found no evidence a chemical weapon attack took place.
It is sounding like the drums of war are getting louder.
Bang the drums….blow the trumpets….prepare!
Here we go again!
