According to the UK. You won't hear it from the US, but there is clear evidence that, in the aftermath of the illegal invasion of Iraq in 2003, the US government, military and CIA organized death squads of up to 12,000 men for the purpose of torturing and slaughtering Iraqi civilians, night after night, in order to defeat the Iraqi resistance. Believe it or not, Iraq had no history of sectarian clashes.
The real story of what happened at the WTC and in Iraq will be known someday and will be understood as pivotal in America's decline.
But it's obviously better than Syria right? It could have been worse!
This is nothing new. This is the American way.
[quote]"One of the enduring myths of the Iraq War is that George W. Bush’s “surge” of 30,000 US troops into Iraq in 2007, reduced the number of attacks on US troops and effectively defeated the Sunni-led insurgency in Baghdad. This is entirely FALSE. The surge was largely a PR campaign that was designed to conceal the activities of US-funded and trained Shia death squads that were killing or expelling millions of Sunnis from Baghdad in what turned out to be one the greatest incidents of ethnic cleansing in the modern era. While the MSM still refuses to acknowledge what was actually taking place on the ground even before Bush deployed his meager 22,000 US troops to Baghdad"
Does anyone take the msm seriously? I hope not.
Gee, you'd think that, #1 - our use of that many killers would have been more productive than that? and #2 - don't you think more people would be missing, that someone would have asked by now?
I've always been disappointed about the stuff made up about Bush. We can do better!
What are you talking about, R5? How do you know how productive they were?
This.is.not.made.up. The U.S. did the same exact thing in Panama under Bush #1. The Bush family are nothing more than organized criminals.
Not to mention Guatemala and El Salvador. There are still villages in those countries which were completely wiped off the face of the Earth by death squads, covertly supported and funded by CIA.
R6 and R7, are there any books or other sources you can recommend? I'd like to read up on the central American death squads.
The first thing that comes to mind is "The Panama Deception" (at link), R9.
Also, "Confessions of an Economic Hitman" by John Perkins; "The Secret Circle" by Cheryl Seymour; and "State Violence and Genocide in Latin America: The Cold War Years" are good books.
Also try Dave Emory website. He has tons of audio on the subject along with many other subjects.
I don't know about "death squads" but a friend of mine in college was an Iraqi American with family still in the country.
She actually supported the Iraq war in the lead up to the conflict and went to Iraq that first summer after the war started to see family she hadn't seen in years, maybe ever, while the country was under Saddam rule.
This enthusiasm for the Iraq War pretty much evaporated though a few months later when the U.S. government started disappearing male family members who had no connection to any kind of uprising or anything and with no explanation of why they were being detained other than they were Sunnis or males who lived in the province where Saddam was from. I lost touch wit her after college so never heard whether they were put in any Abu Ghraib situations, but when it comes to what we did in Iraq, I'm pretty much conditioned to believe the worst.
What about Obama's death panels? Huh? Oh, they're gonna getcha! You betcha!
