This is in the Washington posts ... they are calling them myths ...
Who perpetrated these myths ? you need to find out quick america because innocent people are dying all over the place in the name of ..
just taking this from the first point
Americans are at far greater risk of being killed in accidents or by viruses than by acts of terrorism. In 2008, more than 37,300 Americans perished
on the nation's highways, according to government data. Even before H1N1, a similar number of people died each year from the seasonal flu. Terrorism
is a real and potentially consequential danger. But the greatest threat isn't posed by the direct harm terrorists could inflict
And yet the world spends billions and trillions on this war on land/ resources/ power .
.. sorry i mean war on terror ...
we the people need to start a war .. a war on lies .... yet these things come to light .. they appear in the media briefly and nothing is ever done ..
its like if its reported its sanctioned and forgotten .. well MSM reporting not sure how reliable the Washington post is ...
I guess what i am trying to say is that if there are 5 myths about the war on terror and the first two seem to cover the overall war on terror .. why
don't they come out and say it ..
The War on Terror is a myth .. not a myth but a concocted lie to sell war to decent people..
