"The people of England have been led in Mesopotania (Iraq) into a trap from which it will be hard to escape with dignity and honor. They have been tricked into it by a steady with-holding of information, and we are today, not far from disaster."

Chruchhill 1920 -

"Evidently we're in for a long, costly campaign in Mesopotamia, which will strain to the uttermost, our military resources. It seems to me so gratuitous that we should be compelled to go on pouring armies and treasure into these thankless deserts."

A well known missionary at that time warned..

"You are flying in the face of four milleniums of history if you try and draw a line around Iraq and call it a political entity. They have never been on independent unity."

I highly recommend this full explanation of the lead up to our circumstances facing terrorists from the Middle East.

Lando chronicles how Ronald Reagan and George W.H. Bush continued to arm Saddam despite warnings from their own intelligence agencies that he was intent on producing WMD, and details how Washington’s feckless policies helped provoke Saddam to invade Kuwait.

The author lays out the shameful history of George W.H. Bush’s 1991 inciting Iraqis to rise against Saddam—only to turn his back when they heeded the call. Indeed the American President actually aided Saddam to repress the revolt, even as Saddam’s men slaughtered tens perhaps hundreds of thousands of Shiites.

The book also describes the murderous impact of the U.N. trade sanctions that the U.S. and Britain maintained on Iraq—long after they were proven ineffectual—despite evidence that huge numbers of Iraqi civilians, mainly children, were dying as a result. Many of those facts might have been divulged during a no-holds-barred trial of Saddam but those in power made sure that would never happen. The rules of the game that foreigners cannot be prosecuted a stunning case of victor’s justice—and a point that most of the media has completely ignored.
