THE BIG LIE (6) - TV NEWS HAS NOT BECOME HARD-CORE PROPAGANDA & DISINFORMATION, AND IS NOT PERFORMED BY HIGHLY-PAID ACTORS & ACTRESSES
I will tell you why we are in Iraq, in May 2001 the Bush government was negotiating with the Taliban to lay the foundations for U.S. diplomatic recognition and pipelines for oil and natural gas. Washington saw the Taliban as a potential partner who could provide stability in Afghanistan and benefit from the construction of pipelines by U.S. corporations. The American officials told the Taliban, "Either you accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you under a carpet of bombs." The Taliban declined the offer and the rest is history. The truth is we are in Afghanistan to help promote American attempts at world domination and for their economic reasons. The Afghans had nothing at all to do with 9/11 or Bin Laden's involvement, indeed at one time they even offered to hand him over.
Miliband mentions "Because of the enormous cost of heroin use and the related crime on our streets.". Doesn't he know that before the invasion the Taliban had just about eliminated the heroin crop? Perhaps Miliband should read this; "Britain is protecting the biggest heroin crop of all time."
