According to a leaked British memo, Tony Blair and George W (w stands for WWIII)Bush floated the idea of painting a US fighter jet in UN colors and flying it over Iraq, in hopes that Saddam would shoot it down, thereby giving them the justification for the invasion of Iraq. This was probably before the forged Niger "yellow cake" documents fell into their laps through Larry Franklin and his friends at AIPAC. If they had only spent as much of an effort in planning the invasion as they did in finding a reason for it.
And it seems that if they seemed so eager to start a war in Iraq, why not look beyond that to Afghanistan? That invasion was in the planning stages six months before 9/11, what sort of deception might they use to justify that invasion? If a stray aircraft that accidentally wandered into the airspace over George W's Crawford Ranch while he was there this weekend could be forced to land by fighter jets, why couldn't hijacked planes be forced to land on 9/11? (This whole incident is reminiscent of the USS Liberty Affair, where unmarked Israeli fighter jets attacked an American Naval radio ship monitoring communications during the Six Day War in 1967 in an attempt to bring the US into the war on Israel's side)
The Bush administration, mired in corruption and practiced in deception, is now looking to invade Iran, which is building a nuclear power plant. How many lies will it spread to the American people in order to start this war, which like Afghanistan and Iraq, are all about the oil. Iran plans on exchanging it's oil for euros in March, once that happens, this supposed booming economy that we have will disappear because all those dollars sitting in foreign banks are worthless if any of these countries should try to exchange them for euros.
The sad truth is the average American is ill-informed. The corporate media is owned by people whose wealth is all in dollars. It's just as beneficial for them to continue the charade as it is for the Bush administration and Congress. So the lies being fed to the flag waving, beer swilling, brain damaged chemically imbalanced jackanapes are more convenient to them than actually reading and finding out the truth. They are the great American shame, for every time it's been pointed out that Bush is lying to them, the accept theold lie and believe the new one. Fool me once........
