It’s odd, the amnesia of Americans. It is possible, however, a few Americans remember the particularly deadly lie told by Lyndon Baines Johnson about the Gulf of Tonkin “incident” slash fairy tale of treacherous N. Vietnam commies attacking the “reconnaissance” destroyer Maddox, thus initiating a war in Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia). More than three million people were killed.
Or, more recently, the lies of George W. Bush and his perfidious neocons. It was said repeatedly Saddam Hussein (former CIA operative) had WMDs ready to attack innocent American children while they slept. Later, when the lies were exposed, Bush turned it into a comedy routine. No WMDs here… just a million and a half dead people.
Maybe a couple of people remember when Bush triumphantly announced the USG death machine had wiped out the Taliban (formerly on the CIA payroll). It was another bald-faced lie told by a pathological liar.
P.S., the Taliban won. The war will cost us—or, rather, our descendants—$2.261 trillion. Forbes put the cost at $300 million a day for 20 years.
Now they’re telling big whoppers about Ukraine, a democracy with neo-nazis. It’s a textbook example of Orwellian Doublethink.
