Jon Stewart is at it again, this time in an epic take down of the recent Iraq war propaganda. It’s the same old song: fingers will be pointed, politicians will say there will be bombs dropping but no troops on the ground, troops will still be deployed on a “limited” basis, many innocent people will be killed, then nothing will be fixed and the situation will probably get worse.
We’ve seen it over an over in the Middle East, only for our meddling in the internal affairs of sovereign countries to come back and bite us in the form of blowback later on. It’s the same old actors: the President is the fall guy, John McCain the ever ignorant war monger, Lindsey Graham who is willing to bomb everyone including Iran –unless it’s politically expedient– in which case he’s willing to work with them to bomb Iraq, democracy spreading politicians from both parties (oil?), the complicit media and the “foreign policy experts” on TV who all too often actually represent military contracting firms (which would benefit financially from more foreign intervention).
Recent reports have shown just how mislead we were on the initial invasion of Iraq during ‘Operation Iraqi Freedom’. From the news that the CIA had definitive information refuting Bush Administration claims of WMDs held by Saddam, to Chelsea Manning’s leaks and recent Op-ed claiming we’re still being lied to about the situation in Iraq.
The situation in Iraq is undoubtedly a complicated one. ISIS fighters were actually aligned with US backed rebels in the fight against Assad in Syria little more that one month ago, receiving funds and weaponry from the US via our puppet allies in the region. Now, our own arms and training are being turned on the Iraqi puppet government, only to be likely met by our own show of force via air strikes and Iraqi military aid. From Zero Hedge via Live Free, Live Natural:
“To summarize: the US was arming and training the same Al Qaeda/ISIS groups of Jihadists [in Syria], that it concurrently gave Iraq weapons to fight. And since the Iraq army has so far proven utterly incapable of any resistance, it is now up to US drones to “fight” the same “rebels” that the US itself was collaborating with until a month or so ago.”
So basically, we’re funding and arming both sides of this conflict in earnest. If you want to know what’s really going on in Iraq, read this insightful article on TheAntiMedia.org; otherwise, check out Stewart’s take down of this pitiful propaganda below:
