They're all liars - from the liberal and conservative mainstream media to Scott McLlellan. They knew, oh and how they knew, that Saddam Hussein didn't have WMDs.
Hans Blix told them so.
This former UN Chief Weapons Inspector stated unequivocally in February and March 2003 that there Iraq had been cooperative and there wasn't a shred of evidence of weapons of mass destruction.
I remember this shit well. I emailed various members of the media and begged them to run this story more. One of my letters to O'Reilly was so nasty that he actually emailed me back. I don't remember what this war-mongerer passing for a journalist said, but he was just as nasty in his response.
Then President Bush gave Saddam 48 hours to leave his own friggin' country or they'd be attacked. I emailed the White House and pointed out there was was no need to start war since Hans Blix said Iraq didn't have what they lied and said he did.
And oh the lies! Remember Bush's one about enriched uranium in Africa that Saddam was going to use? All lies were swept under the carpet by the media. They turned their heads the other way and sucked up to the Bush administration.
On March 19, 2003, the US carpet-bombed Baghdad. They did it fully knowing there were no WMDs - which was the public reason for attacking this defenseless city and innocent civilians. Blix was pushed out the media zone and his truths swept under the carpet. I remember how sad this dignified, intelligent man looked.
I reacted in fear. Maybe Bush was right and Blix was wrong, for why else would he go forward with a massacre? I reasoned that if Saddam had WMDs, he'd retaliate to our bombs by bombing us in return. That would be the normal course of action for any leader - if attacked, to strike back. I lived near DC at the time. I packed up my family and headed to Florida. I didn't feel safe until I was hundreds of miles away. We remained there for the next 10 days.
America remained safe, and then I realized our president had suckered me and everyone else. I realized that the scholarly paper titled Securing the Realm, written and/or signed in the late 1990s by a host of neocons, including Dick Cheney, was the grand plan for a Middle East takeover. Several countries were, and from what I can tell, still are, slated for massive changes via US intervention.
Afghanistan was on the list.
Iraq was on the list.
Iran was on the list.
Syria was on the list.
The New World Order had a time table for their accomplishments. So far, they're as on time as Hitler's trains.
Scott McLlellan knows all about this. His book gives us the soft, fluff version.
If I knew it in early 2003, he damned sure knew it.
If I knew it in early 2003, the mainstream media damn sure knew it.
If Alex Jones knew the deal pre-9/11, the President knew it too.
Instead of bringing this neocon dream of a New World Order to light, CNN, Fox, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and all the biggies interviewed the neo-warriors. They treated them as darlings and allowed them to spoon-feed Americans toxic beliefs that we the people are entitled to re-make any country by any means necessary because we, in our 'better way of life' are obligated to bring 'democracy' to any nation unfortunate enough to be on the hit list.
Instead we brought terror and tears to virtually every family in Afghanistan and Iraq. They've been bombed back into the pre-industrial stage if not the Stone Age, and the American mainstream media was the Bush Administration's accomplice. They continue to be.
Last month a new lie was uncovered. The Bush Administration released a fake story of Iraq getting weapons from Iran, which was used to kill American soldiers. When this was revealed to be an outright lie, our media barely reported it and as since ignored it. This is the story they should have devoted hundreds of hours of time to it - not the bullshit over which pastor said what.
This new lie was an attempt to justify invading Iran, and by the way, Tehran has one of the top 10 most populous cities in the entire world. Carpet-bombing a city of 7,000,000 would be criminal.
The neocons could care less about Iranian loss of life and tears, and I'll predict they'll do it anyway. They'll do it this year if they assess that Obama will defeat McCain, and next year if McCain is President.
If our economy was strong, many Americans wouldn't care either. Iranians, like Iraqis, aren't perceived as being white. Nor are they Christians, and Americans were taught by our media since 9/11 to associate the Muslim religion with terrorism. The combination of religious bigotry and cultural devaluation of non-whites has resulted in mainstream America's F 'em attitude. I said it before and I'll say it again - if Afghanies and Iraqis were European in their appearance, Americans would have worked a lot harder to stop the barbarism.
[For more pics far more disturbing than this, go here then ask yourself why even the so-called liberal media has shown us so few of these since our invasion of Iraq.]
But our economy isn't strong. It's in it's last breaths and is dying from war and greed and the proverbial chickens may really be coming home to roost. We're crying at the gas pump and will shed many more tears in 2009 and thereafter no matter who is Presdent. Do the neoconservatives who designed this grand plan, the New World Order, care?
No. F us is their attitude.
