Some of you won't get it through no fault of your own.
For example, you may be an adult following the news, but you might be 18. Which would make you ten when the illegal war started.
If that's the case, you may not get how wall-to-wall the whole thing was. How the march to war kept on and nothing we could do or say stopped it.
We marched and protested before the Iraq War started. It didn't stop the war.
It barely got covered by the media. The largest protest around the globe. It was ignored or mocked.
But there was plenty of time to tell us how we need to go to war. There was more than enough time for articles and TV reports on all the 'bunkers' under Saddam Hussein's palaces that he would be fleeing to. Like WMDs, those appear to have not existed. But I do remember the TV reports on them, I remember the glossy drawings of them in Newsweek.
The media worked overtime to sell the illegal war. Now on the anniversary of it, they can't even bother to report on it.
