By David Swanson
September 1, 2010

Lies aren't used just to start wars, but also to escalate them, continue them, and even reduce or end them. And we got a pile of war lies from President Barack Obama on Tuesday evening.

Read on.

We went into Iraq to steal their OIL.
Mission accomplished!
Now we will remain, as we remain in Korea, indefinitely. Ah, empire!

"partnership based on mutual interests and mutual respect".
We have draconian sanctions on you for 12 years, invade and occupy you, kill and displace millions, destroy the whole civilised, advanced, educated nation that was there even under the Saddam Hussein régime, blame you for any "terrorist" response, have the hubris to "train" you for fighting the insurgency we introduced, and finally we arrange to leave you to your wonderfully working democracy, almost as fair as ours. Gee, thanks Barack.

U.S.Military Leaving as Heroes????

Iraq has been destroyed ,ruined & a destroyed society.

The US beginning 1991, bombed for 12 years, with one excuse or another; then invaded, then occupied, overthrew the government, killed wantonly & tortured ...

The Iraqi people have lost everything - their homes, their schools, their electricity, their clean water, their environment, their neighborhoods, their mosques, their archaeology, their jobs, their careers, their professionals, their state-run enterprises, their physical health, their mental health, their health care, their welfare state, their women's rights, their religious tolerance, their safety, their security, their children, their parents, their past, their present, their future, their lives

More than half the population either dead, wounded, traumatized, in prison, internally displaced, or in exile ...

Their air, soil, water, blood and genes drenched with depleted uranium ... the most awful birth defects ... unexploded cluster bombs lie in wait for children to pick them up ...

An army of young Islamic men went to Iraq to fight the American invaders; they left the country more militant, hardened by war, to spread across the Middle East, Europe and Central Asia

A river of blood runs alongside the Euphrates and Tigris ... through a country that may never be put back together again.

Iraq is forced by the United States to continue paying reparations for its own invasion of Kuwait in 1990.

How much reparation will America pay the people of Iraq?

The US brought a Holocaust to Iraq.
