To the editor:
The George W. Bush (43) administration sold to the American public the idea that the 5th President of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, had weapons of mass destruction (WMD's) and intended to use them. The Zionist, Neo-con warmongering members of the George W. Bush administration convinced "W" to go to war first with Iraq and then with Afghanistan. This demonic lie that Iraq had WMD's perpetrated by Zionist influence for the benefit of "Eretz Israel" cost the United States of America dearly in blood and treasure. The Wikipedia information states that the total U.S. casualties from the War on Terror are 66,077-plus with total Americans killed (military and civilian) 9,655-plus. The financial cost according to Wikipedia, covering spending related to the war as of 2011 is $2.7 trillion with the estimated long term spending at $5.4 trillion including interest.
Another insufferable lie was that Osama Bin Laden (former U.S. ally on the payroll of the CIA) and Saddam Hussein somehow acted in tandem to plot the 9/11 terrorist attack. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Go to: www.ae911truth.org. Also, read War Is a Racket by Major General Smedley D. Butler.
We have had three ten year plus "invasions" (wars) in my lifetime; Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. Vietnam is now a communist nation which we help through our foreign aid programs. I wonder how the extended families of those 58,282 American lives lost in Vietnam feel now about sending their sons to die in a no-win war for corporate America which raked in billions of dollars for the intelligence-military-industrial-complex. As the conflict continues in Iraq and Afghanistan our own former Vice-President, Dick Cheney, receives tens of millions of dollars from his stock with Halliburton Corporation (where he was a former CEO) which won no bid contracts from our own government. Cheney recently called whistle blower and patriot, Edward Snowden, a traitor. Cheney only has to look in the mirror to see what a real traitor to our republic looks like. For this government to fund the anti-Assad Syrian rebels, many of whom are Al-Qaeda mercenaries (supposedly our mortal enemies) is traitorous and insane. Anyone who believes that the Assad government is using chemical warfare in this Syrian Civil War is an idiot. This is a typical fairytale made up by our own Zionist-biased media. As a veteran I say bring them all home and defend our own borders.
End the FED, end the WARS, end the IRS!!!
