198. It is a stain of shame
It is bogus to think that we went to Iraq to liberate it. After all, some of our leaders have promoted some of the most ruthless bloody dictators, like Pinochet, like Saddam. Iraq could attack us-they have missiles that can reach us--that was the first lie. Iraq has WMD's, they are in violation (almost all of Iraq's WMD's were either destroyed or expired)-that's was the second lie. We must liberate Iraq from it's evil dictator-well we supported him, I guess we knew all along who Saddam was-but Iraq was a more westernized nation, it's women could vote, earn degrees, walk around unveiled-Iraq was a tourist attraction, world reknown museums, highways, skyscrapers-before we blew most of it away. Saddam threw out the UN inspectors-that's the third lie-we warned those inspectors that we would be abombing. Saddam is implicate in 9/11-this is the 4th lie-for I distinctly remember Saddam publicly announcing that he stood with the US denouncing the act, also he was no friend of AlQaeda. Saddam is manufacturing nuclear weapons and is buying yellow cake, that's the fifth lie. And if, as has been discussed, Saddam had bargained to step down to keep the US from attacking, then I'd say some of our inglorious leaders are murderers and thieves. Thieves, because the first thing after attacking Iraq was to secure the oil ministry. Not secure aresenals, protect museums, or nuclear material-but to secure the oil ministry.

I remember the horror of Falluja, the bombing of Baghdad--when will we cease this madness?

I cannot watch the film--I have already seen what we did to Falluja-I just can't watch it now.
