How the U.S. War Propaganda Machine Gets Us to Forget About the Iraq WMD Hoax

  • As any politician knows, no evidence of any kind is ever required. It is only necessary to make a statement — any statement — forcefully enough to have an audience believe it. No one will check the lie against the facts, and, if they do, they will disbelieve the facts. Do you think the German people in 1939 pretended that the Poles had attacked them and started World War II? No! Since they were told that was so, they believed it as seriously as you and I believe that they attacked the Poles. --Isaac Asimov, Review Of 1984

  Signup for Our FREE Newsletter /May13,2019 | Despite the reflexive disbelief from pundits who’ve promoted Russiagate when faced with the part of Mueller’s report that finds no Trump-Russia collusion, these pundits have seized upon a statement from the report that claims Russia hacked into Democratic Party emails in 2016. For context, let us remember that the purpose of Russiagate has never really been to destroy Donald Trump, but to manufacture the anti-Russian sentiments the U.S. empire needs to carry out its plans for great power competition. So it’s predictable that Russiagate conspiracy theorists are now pivoting towards a message that more generally emphasizes Russia as an aggressor that’s “attacked our democracy.”

The puzzling development is that so many Americans continue to believe this clear deception. The claim that Russia hacked the DNC has been thoroughly debunked by forensic evidence that shows WikiLeaks got the emails through an inside leak instead of a hack, and Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity has even chastised Mueller directly for his irresponsible omission of this information from his report. Then there’s the issue that looms behind all of this, which is the fact that the intelligence officials, media outlets, and politicians who now say that Russia is a threat are the same people who lied us into war in Iraq sixteen years ago. / Rainer Shea uses the written word to deconstruct establishment propaganda and to promote meaningful political action.

7 Reasons To Be Highly Skeptical Of The Gulf Of Oman Incident, Caitlin Johnstone, Activist Post have seen exactly zero evidence supporting Pompeo’s claims, so anyone you see hastening to blame Iran for the Gulf of Oman incident is either a war whore or a slobbering moron, or both. Knowing what we know about the US-centralized empire and its pre-existing regime change agenda against Iran, there is no reason to believe Pompeo and many reasons not to.
