Not too many years ago the American government and people were the envy of many people in the world. From all over the world people wanted to come to America. They were proud for what America stood for in sprit and opportunity for all. People from all over the world came to America to discover new ways and products that the people of the world wanted and making great fortunes from nothing. America was a major exporter of produces and ideas bringing us into the modern world as we know it today. Days and weeks after 9-11 most people and nations sympathy and sorrow poured out for the people of the United States. The whole world was behind us with a very few exception. Even going into Afghanistan most for the people in the world were behind us with many people having some reservations. Going after Bin Laden who was at the root of 9-11 people understood. Then like a ?Two for one sale? we start to go after Saddam?s deck of cards in Iraq after we have been bombing Iraq on a regular basis since the 1991 war. Economic trade sanctions that only harmed and effected the every day people of Iraq while Saddam and his deck of cards lived like Kings with bombs and missiles dropping out of the sky. No one of sound mind questioned whether the American military forces could win the military war against Saddam. The question that many people had was how was America going to bring peace into Iraq after winning the military war. The civilian leaders of the United States government were telling the American people and the people of the world. That we were going to be perceived a hero by the Iraqi people with the people cheering and throwing flowers. That the Iraqi oil was going to pay for the war costing the American taxpayer every little. Today almost a 1000 Americans solders killed with many 1000?s injured and maimed for life. So many false statements and lies told to the American people and the people of the world about peace and Iraq. Today by many high-level American government officials and mass media talking heads speak as if it is a coin of a toss whether Syria or Iran is seen as a bigger threat to America?s national security. Probably it will turn into another ?Two for one sale in the name of God War on terror?.
