Lies and Obstruction

It’s no surprise that Bush, Cheney and their supporters are so intent on and impressions coming out of their Iraq War catastrophe.

These are the same people who went to war with the swaggering casualness of a young teenager playing a cool video-game system, though teenagers are typically more candid about their rationales and objectives.

Blocking their actions from examination is a full-time job for this administration and its paid liars, who even today are selling the Iraq War alternately as a mistake/unfortunate imperative, and not a colossal lie.

Michael Kamber and Tim Arango’s piece in this morning’s New York Times on the “growing effort by the American military to control graphic images from the war” makes a reader wonder if somehow all this destruction in Iraq could have been prevented by candid discussion in this democracy of what war is during the 2002-03 roll-out of Bush&;s Iraq propaganda.

Write Kamber and Arango:

“(O)pponents of the war, civil liberties advocates and journalists argue that the public portrayal of the war is being sanitized and that Americans who choose to do so have the right to see — in whatever medium — the human cost of a war that polls consistently show is unpopular with Americans.”

Good to see the New York Times news columns covering a trusim that has been abundantly obvious to any thinking person from the very beginning of this bullshit war.

The American public was not calling for a war with Iraq in 2002-03 or for that matter never was too keen on the idea, but the truth is they/we let it happen, and the war&;s continuation today, sustained by ever-changing lies, is as tragic now as it was five years ago.
