LIES ABOUT IRAQ AND IRAN

Iraqi victim of the American military-industrial-narco-complex.

Reportedly, 40% of Americans are employed directly or indirectly in the defence industry. (dailymail.co.ukz)

The military-industrial-narco-complex needs wars.

Mad jingoists support the military, and believe its lies.

Carne Ross did not believe the lies.

Carne Ross was the UK diplomat in charge of the Iraq dossier at the United Nations.

He resigned from the Foreign Office over the Iraq war.

Ross has told the UK's Iraq Inquiry that the UK and US gradually exaggerated the threat Saddam posed, suppressing contrary opinion.

According to Ross: "This process of exaggeration was gradual, and proceeded by accretion and editing from document to document, in a way that allowed those participating to convince themselves that they were not engaged in blatant dishonesty.

"But this process led to highly misleading statements about the UK assessment of the Iraqi threat that were, in their totality, lies."


In the Financial Times, 22 July 2010, David Gardner writes (Iraq intelligence fiasco could happen again): "Why is all this so important?

"Because it lays bare the ways in which governments can ignore reasoned advice, embellish fragmentary evidence and manipulate public opinion over matters as great as going to war – and that this could happen again.

"There is now a ratcheting up of the threat posed by Iran’s nuclear ambitions."


It is worth noting that Saddam worked for the CIA

And, Saddam may have escaped to Belarus
