I believe these numbers speak for themselves. "Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind." George Orwell "I ain’t got nothin’ against them Viet Cong. No Cong ever called me Nigger." Cassius Clay "I did not think so at first. But the US is incredibly dependent on oil, They wanted to secure oil in case competition on the world market becomes too hard." Dr. Hans Blix "Since the Second World War, the US has bombed China, Korea, Guatemala, Indonesia, Cuba, Guatemala (again), Peru, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Guatemala (third time lucky), Grenada, Lebanon, Libya, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Iran, Panama, Iraq, Kuwait, Somalia, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Yugoslavia - in that order - and in not a single case did the bombing produce a democratic government as a direct result." Terry Jones source: here. I would like to remember that the Iraq invasion started around March, 2003. I remember watching at BBC Zimbabweans being tortured by Mugabe. Only for one day they reported it and I didn't see nothing else being said anymore about the tortures that happened at that time.
