Letter: War in Iraq was based on lies

A government starts a war based on lies and pushed by their propaganda machines which include government produced news stories featuring paid actors.

A long war that cost over a million lives and millions more suffered physical and mental wounds. An unpaid war that ran up over $3 trillion in debt to the citizens of the nation that started it and war profiteers made billions. Name that country? If you guessed the United States of America, you’re right.

The Iraq war was all based on lies produce by the Bush and Cheney administration. Lies pushed by both the fiction dealers at the Fox News Channel and the duped reality news sources. Over 1,033,000 people died over their lies; 4,487 brave Americans died over their lies; 32,226 brave Americans were wounded over Bush’s and Cheney’s lies. One-third of the brave Americans who served in Iraq suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome because of the Bush administration’s lies. Like Wall Street scammers and corrupt bankers, the people in Bush administration will never face justice for their crimes and that’s a shame.

Nine or 10 years ago people wrote about Iraq being a war for profit and based on lies. People believing themselves to be patriots called them traitors and suggested I should be permanently silenced. History has shown us the real traitors who betrayed America and they are still spreading lies in 2013. Will the patriots call for Cheney, Rove and other traitors to be permanently silenced?

  • Viewpoint: Pray for an end to abortion pandemic There are few, if any, conditions of our day that have more impact on our lives than the shameful practice of abortion – a legalized form of murder. There are many who say that should not be spoken in polite society. There are others who buy into the fabrication that since abortion is legal, it must be a non-issue.

  • Viewpoint: Politicians creating instability in public schools

    I will begin this correspondence by stating I have known hundreds of educators from across the state of Indiana. There are a couple of fibers that commonly run through the character of most of these great people, educators truly care about kids, and they do not fear a fair and equitable evaluation.

  • Viewpoint: Resources are available to prevent child abuse The word "courage" is often associated with the fight against child abuse. Front line victim advocates have long recognized the need for courage in order to protect victims. Behind the scene advocates need courage to fight for funding and attention to the cause.

  • Viewpoint: Tree City USA distinction laughable I thoroughly enjoyed your April Fools' editorial announcing that the city of Anderson had received the Tree City USA distinction. Had I not realized it was a joke, I would have choked on my coffee. I was a little concerned that you did not announce to some of the less enlightened readers that it was an April Fools' joke.
