Too little, way too late.
The Western mass media fed us the US and UK governments’ lies, never questioning the barrage of bullshit that flowed from the White House and Downing Street.
The result? A bloody invasion.
No WMDs, no freedom for Iraqis and an increase in terrorism. Plus tens of thousands of Iraqis slaughtered in a war for control of Iraq’s oil fields.
And still Bush and Blair remain in their plush offices instead of being held in handcuffs as the war criminals they are.
