Was It Worth It?

Was It Worth It? by Laurence M. Vance

I've taken the same position as Laurence Vance in this article since the pump-up for the invasion of Iraq began.

What I can't believe is that he, I and way too few people understand what happened well enough to sort it out. It is truly amazing to see the mind control exercised by America's information supply in action, and especially in cases like this where the truth is so clear yet so well masked, hidden and spun for the benefit of those who own the presses.

The Lies of War by Jack Random

"We understand at our stage of development that a president cannot apologize for the harm done in the name of our nation."

While I agree with everything said in this article, this one sentence is wrong. Not only can our President apologize for the harm done, he must do so. And furthermore he must put the perpetrators on trial for the war crimes they committed. This must be done because there is one thing we must have at any price: our sense of justice, without which we will free-fall into the abyss.

Faking It: How the Media Manipulates the World into War by Corbett Report
"Far from being a dispassionate observer of these developments, however, the media has in fact been central to increasing those tensions and preparing the public to expect a military confrontation. But as the online media rises to displace the traditional forms by which the public forms its understanding of the world, many are now beginning to see first hand how the media lies the public into war."
