We went to war based on a lie. The terrorist plot was merely a catalyst for Bushco, Inc. to attack Iraq, which Junior wanted to do after Hussein insulted his daddy. Cheney made billions on that war. Now Cheney has no heart, just a pump instead, but that's besides the point.
Actually, it was more than likely a ploy for US corporations, who actually run the country, and the world, to usurp the natural resources of the Middle East.
Since the terrorist "threats," they have been able to contain a good portion of the population by means of fear. Nope, I won't fall for it. It was the doings of corporatists.
People for a New American Century, even had a paper that stated that the US needed a "new Pearl Harbor," in order to exploit the resources of the Middle East. It's all about imperialism. Read some of Chomsky's stuff, will ya? It'll teach you a lot about American Imperialism!
If we really cared about terrorists, and wanted to stave off any attacks, we would have taken our troops out of the Muslim Holy Land in Saudi Arabia. That was the stated "reason" why bin Laden attacked the US. No need for all this death, it would have been simple, but NOOOOOO, the US is the Police of the world, and has to have troops in as many countries as possible. Why do we have troops in the Middle East any way, other than to protect the corporate interests there? Please don't tell me it's about Israel, that will only be solved when the Jews there are a minority, which will happen in the next generation or two.
