Bush tells another bald-faced whopper, claims he has laid the 'foundation of peace'!

Not content to have sacrificed the lives of US soldiers in his failed war of aggression against Iraq, Bush now says that the deaths of some 4,000 US soldiers in Iraq have 'laid the foundations for peace'. It's another bald face lie from the man who fabricated evidence against Saddam when, in fact, Iraq had no 'weapons of mass destruction', when, in fact, Bush sent US soldiers to their deaths upon a calculated, evil fraud!
"One day, people will look back at this moment in history and say, 'Thank God there were courageous people willing to serve, because they laid the foundations for peace for generations to come,' " Bush told reporters after a meeting at the State Department.


-- Bush: US deaths in Iraq 'laid foundations for peace'
It's another bald-faced lie from an habitual liar, sociopath and traitor. People will look back and marvel that Bush --the worst 'leader' since Nero -got away with it for so long! The prospects for peace have never been worse and will continue to deteriorate as long as Dick Cheney et al are given the resources of a nuclear power! They have exploited that power to steal the oil resources of nations like Iraq and, eventually, Iran.


Bush would rather you did not know that, in fact, the world is more dangerous, terrorism is worse, and deaths from the Iraq war mount daily. Total US and Iraqis deaths from Bush's order to attack, invade and occupy Iraq now top 1.2 million. This act of mass murder has now cost the American tax payer about 525 billion dollars that might have been spent educating people, improving infrastructure, encouraging neighborhood development, improving job prospects and leveling playing fields.


The US taxpayer was suckered into writing out the check for Dick Cheney's plunder of the middle east. Cheney and his 'energy task force' plotted to carve up the oil fields of Iraq prior to 911 and prior to the attack and invasion of Iraq. The oil fields of Iraq are clearly 'divvied' up among the plotters --Exxon Mobil, Conoco (before its merger with Phillips), Shell Oil, BP America Inc et al. The common sense interpretation of the undeniable timeline (in the public record) is that Bush and Cheney conspired with their neocon and oil industry 'base' to perpetrate a hoax upon the US --a 911 pretext --upon which they would raise the bogus specter of 'terrorism'! While the nation was still in shock, Colin Powell would peddle the cover story at the UN with falsified papers, bogus 'evidence and lies. It was a deliberate and treasonous fraud!


Recently Scott McClellan charged that Bush Misled Americans In Order to Go to War. Earlier Colin Powell had stated on national television that he, too, has been misled prior to his presentation to the UN in which he cited a plagiarized student paper.
One embarrassing revelation about Powell's speech was that a key part of his evidence against Iraq was cut and pasted from a California graduate student's outdated academic paper, ripped directly from the Internet. In academia, we call this plagiarism. Stealing something straight off of a website, an act easily detected by feeding a string of words into a Google search, is plagiarism in its cheesiest form. Students who do it fail classes--this is nonnegotiable. In Powell's case, he isn't the plagiarizer. He properly cited a British intelligence service report--four pages of which were ripped off without citation, complete with spelling and grammatical errors--from a paper that appeared in October 2002 in an obscure academic journal.


--Michael I. Niman, Powell, plagiarism, taxes, and war - Watch On The Right - Editorial
and ten year old satellite photos in support of a bald faced lie that Saddam had WMD.
Powell presented satellite photos of industrial buildings, bunkers and trucks, and suggested they showed Iraqis surreptitiously moving prohibited missiles and chemical and biological weapons to hide them. At two sites, he said trucks were "decontamination vehicles" associated with chemical weapons.


These and other sites have now undergone 500 inspections in recent months. Chief U.N. inspector Hans Blix, a day earlier, had said his well-equipped experts had found no contraband in their inspections and no sign that items had been moved. Nothing has been reported found since.


Addressing the Security Council a week after Powell, Blix used one photo scenario as an example and said it could be showing routine as easily as illicit activity. Journalists visiting photographed sites hours after the Powell speech found similar activity to be routine.


Norwegian inspector Jorn Siljeholm told AP on March 19 that "decontamination vehicles" U.N. teams were led to by U.S. information invariably turned out to be simple water or fire trucks. On June 24, Blix said of the entire Powell photo package, "We were not impressed with that particular evidence."


Amid Powell's warnings, a critical fact was lost: Iraq's military industries were to have remained under strict, on-site U.N. monitoring for years to come, guarding against the rebuilding of weapons programs.

Colin Powell Saying He Was Misled Before UN Speech on WMDs


The world is not safer and may never be as safe again. We have George W. Bush and his evil regime to thank.
The new study, by Peter Bergen and Paul Cruickshank, argues that, on the contrary, "the Iraq conflict has greatly increased the spread of al-Qa'ida ideological virus, as shown by a rising number of terrorist attacks in the past three years from London to Kabul, and from Madrid to the Red Sea.


"Our study shows that the Iraq war has generated a stunning increase in the yearly rate of fatal jihadist attacks, amounting to literally hundreds of additional terrorist attacks and civilian lives lost. Even when terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan is excluded, fatal attacks in the rest of the world have increased by more than one third."


In trying to gauge the "Iraq effect", the authors had focused on the rate of terrorist attacks in two periods - from September 2001 to 30 March 2003 (the day of the Iraq invasion) and 21 March 2003 to 30 September 2006. The research has been based on the MIPT-RAND Terrorism database.


The report's assertion that the Iraq invasion has had a far greater impact in radicalising Muslims is widely backed security personnel in the UK. Senior anti-terrorist officials told The Independent that the attack on Iraq, and the now-discredited claims by the US and British governments about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction, had led to far more young Muslims engaging in extremist activity than the invasion of Afghanistan two years previously.


--How the war on terror made the world a more terrifying place
Terrorism is always worse under GOP regimes and continues to worsen now.
The combination of bloody wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, continued terrorist attacks from Britain to Somalia, and a presidential election in which candidates are defining themselves based on how they would stare down the threats has many seeing shades of gray. Six years after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, just 29 percent of Americans believe the United States is winning the war on terror-the lowest percentage at any point since 9/11.
