    Unfortunately, as the Who did not say.. "We Will Get Fooled Again".

    The Masters of War are already scheming, making plans and preparing their direct deposits to off shore accounts...

    Like in Iraq, I'm not saying that shizzz isnt going down there....just that the reporting of the events on the local news are fabricated to sell this to the public, as evidenced by both of those videos...

    I could provide links to BS all day:

    How PR Sold the War in the Persian Gulf | Center for Media and Democracy

    Remember the babies in incubators?



    Three months passed between Nayirah's testimony and the start of the war. During those months, the story of babies torn from their incubators was repeated over and over again. President Bush told the story. It was recited as fact in Congressional testimony, on TV and radio talk shows, and at the UN Security Council. "Of all the accusations made against the dictator," MacArthur observed, "none had more impact on American public opinion than the one about Iraqi soldiers removing 312 babies from their incubators and leaving them to die on the cold hospital floors of Kuwait City




    Following the war, human rights investigators attempted to confirm Nayirah's story and could find no witnesses or other evidence to support it. Amnesty International, which had fallen for the story, was forced to issue an embarrassing retraction.

    Most recent example would be Gadaffi ... sure he wasn't the best but he was not killing his people like they said he was either ... the opposition was killing them.

    No Jersey Selected

    Honest question (and I can put my tin foil hat on if you think it would be appropriate :))

    Haven't we always heard that Iran is Syria's "Handler".

    Now we have a crisis in Syria -> US Pols and News Outlets drumming up the "Lets go to Syria" rhetoric....

    Could this be the modern day Korea/Vietnam - aka a Proxy war?
