I was just browsing the CIA's page on Iraqi information...
TALK ABOUT A RE-WRITE OF HISTORY
Okay, so it's not a complete re-write, but they sure make it sound like events were different.
Iraq seized Kuwait, but was expelled by US-led, UN coalition forces during the Gulf War of January-February 1991. Following Kuwait's liberation, the
UN Security Council (UNSC) required Iraq to scrap all weapons of mass destruction and long-range missiles and to allow UN verification inspections.
Continued Iraqi noncompliance with UNSC resolutions over a period of 12 years led to the US-led invasion of Iraq in March 2003 and the ouster
of the SADDAM Husayn regime.
They DID dismantle their weapons program... and alot of it with UN observers present!!!! They complied to those orders!
In the aftermath of Iraq's defeat, the U.S.-led U.N. coalition was able to compel Iraq to agree to an inspection and monitoring regime, intended to
insure that Iraq dismantled its WMD programs and did not take actions to reconstitute them. The means of implementing the relevant U.N. resolutions
was the Special Commission on Iraq (UNSCOM). That inspection regime continued until December 16, 1998
CONTINUED until december 16th, 1998... 12 years non-compliance my ass.
So, what's going on here? Did the CIA live out a totally different history to the one we did? Or are they just *really* stupid, and thing we are
gullable enough to suck this stuff down?
They claimed they were in non-compliance for 12 years before the war, which is absolute bull.
Excuse me, but if they were in non-compliance, then how the hell was Saddam awarded the Nobel Peace Prize...
Hussein awarded Nobel Peace Prize for not possessing weapons of mass destruction
FOR NOT POSESSING WMD'S!!!!
Anyhow, HOLD ONTO THAT LINK...
slowly but surely all news reports from back then regarding Saddam's Nobel Peace Prize are being taken down.
So to recap.
CIA says Saddam was in violation of UN security council over Weapons Of Masss Destruction for over 12 years.
The CIA is lying. The CIA seem's to be living in some fairytale version of history in which the Iraqi's have done nothing but evil in their entire
existance, and the US has done nothing but good.
You are being fed an alternate version of history. And the worst part is, this altered version is probably in your school system by now... so kiss
goodbye to the truth.
