ILLEGAL IRAQI WAR AND THE TERROR WITHIN – The mere mention of a possible terrorist threat now sends shivers down our spines with fearful realization that we are not safe.
Subterfuge, smoke and mirrors, lies and closed door meetings; are these works and trade crafts of the well organised terrorist organisations or our governments?
There is almost no doubt that the Iraqi war was fueled by the events of 9/11 where George W. Bush, along with his British counterpart Tony Blair carefully concocted information that suggested that not only was Saddam Hussein partly responsible for 9/11, in that he helped Osama Bin Laden, but was also surreptitiously stockpiling ‘weapons of mass destruction’ (WMD’s) intended for use against foreign adversaries.
The plot was set and with the U.S public baying for revenge over 9/11 the U.S Government, at the insistence of President George W. Bush, pushed through a well orchestrated series of misinformation in order to generate sufficient public support for the war in Iraq; and it worked.
The U.S public is no stranger to Government subterfuge, it happened in 1964 in the lead up to the war in Vietnam where the then President Linden Johnson addressed the public and openly lied.
We are supposed to learn from our mistakes and yet so powerful is the fear from a terrorist threat we have almost allowed our Government to engage in any form of activity all under the pretence of keeping us safe.
Since Edward Snowden, the systems analyst at the NSA PRISM facility broke the news that the U.S Government was spying on its citizens, as well as citizens in so-called allied countries and even including the Government themselves, I have written a number of articles supporting reasons as to why Edward Snowden should never face trial for treason.
Recently a number of public opinion polls have been running in which they asked the public if Edward Snowden should be taken back to the U.S and face the charge of treason. It came as little surprise that a very large majority, over 67%, felt that Edward Snowden is NOT a traitor but rather a patriot for having the moral fortitude to stand up and tell the world what the U.S Government is doing and that its activities are wrong.
We should never be afraid of our Government, our Government must remain afraid of the people, and yet through careful manipulation of information we are beginning to accept that Government is taking away more of our rights all in the namesake of freedom from terrorism.
It didn’t take U.S authorities long to figure out who committed the atrocity in 9/11 and the hunt for Osama Bin Laden was not only morally justifiable it was also essential in order to send a clear message to Al Qaeda that no matter where they hide they will be found and they will face justice.
Considering the might of the U.S Armed Force and its so-called ‘intelligence’ services the U.S Government entered into a campaign to almost blanket bomb Afghanistan in the hope of killing Bin Laden.
As reports of Bin Laden’s ability to elude U.S forces and make a mockery of the intelligences services surfaced, George W. Bush and the administration needed another target; a target they had long viewed as not only a threat to democracy but also as a valuable asset in terms of oil.
That person was Saddam Hussein and the country was Iraq. There are some that feel that the war on terror was never really about Bin Laden but rather a way to install American interests deep within the Middle East.
The seeds to this plot were long sown during and after Desert Storm in which a heavily armed coalition force successfully expelled Saddam Hussein from Kuwait. Criticism of George Bush Sr, then President of the United States, was fierce at the time as public and media opinion was that the coalition forces should never have stopped at the borders of Iraq but rather pressed their way to Baghdad and removed Saddam from power.
The dust has settled; we are more aware of what transpired, but are we any safer? Look closely at the Boston Marathon Bombing; that act alone cements the truth that terrorism has no face and when you can’t see it coming it is almost impossible to stop.
As more and more information comes to light on the Iraqi war the truth is emerging and its purpose appears more about profiteering and government control over its people than it does about preventing terrorism.
There are many, including myself, who feel that there is sufficient evidence to issue an indictment for George W. Bush and Tony Blair and yet despite this evidence our Government refuses to take such action.
This lack of willingness to lay bare the truth has little to do with issues of National Security, as the Government would like you to believe. It is a suspicion that any such indictment would inevitably lead to many more people inside the Government having to be charged and that could finally erode any of the little trust that the people have in its Government or the Constitution.
If you have any doubts as to whether the evidence was fabricated in order to persuade Congress, the House of Representatives, the UN and above all the people of the United State that George W. Bush and his administration concocted in order to push ahead for war then the video above is likely to quell such doubts.
To date the U.S taxpayer has been forced to cover the cost; which now exceeds US$3 trillion. With the billions of dollars being filtered through corporations such as Haliburton who is the largest Government contractor in Iraq with close ties to Richard Chaney. More evidence is now surfacing that some US$23 billion is mostly unaccounted for in what has to be one of the world’s largest war profiteering schemes of all time.
Will the truth ever come out? It is almost impossible to hide the truth, but it is more than likely that George W. Bush would have shuffled off his moral coils for many years before, if ever, we know the whole truth on how a war was orchestrated by those wishing to profit from it behind closed doors and sanctioned by the public through fear.
Do you think George W. Bush should face trial for his part in what is clearly an illegal war against a sovereign nation? Leave your comments below.
