and let slip the Dogs of War! (Shakespeare)
North Korea is testing how to load anthrax onto intercontinental missiles, reports say “North Korea — a country that starves its own people — has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons that could threaten our homeland,” the report said.
The old triple whammy. It's Deja Vu all over again!
"The first casualty of war is truth".*
The warmongers are clearly out of fresh ideas on how to get a war going. But why bother when the old ruses worked so well. It's obvious they see the rest of us as gullible idiots with short memories! Oh, wait. There's that pesky Internet!
No wonder they want to regulate the Internet. The truth is out there - all the lies and criminal acts perpetrated in the name of Peace on Earth.
As I read that dastardly headline there was a kind of echo in my head. It took a few seconds, but then I heard clearly: "Saddam gassed his own people."
But did he, really? Reality Checks Needed During War
When that didn't work, Bush then based his war-lust on "Saddam has WMD's"
But did he really? Spy agencies 'produced flawed information on Saddam's WMDs'
Nevertheless, with the help of the presstitutes, and a few questionable "anthrax" attacks, Bush got away with all of that while, later on, his successor, Barak Obama, received a Nobel prize just for SAYING he would bring the troops home from Iraq - which he never really did, and then, with the help of his sidekick Clinton (Libya) he went on to become the war king of this century. Included in a long list of Obama's anti-peace measures was the repeal of the propaganda ban making it legal for the presstitutes to do what they were already doing in aid of American hegemony.
The Nobel Peace Prize has lost all credibility: Nobel secretary regrets Obama peace prize.
In fact, awards and honours in general now tend to raise my own suspicions about the recipients.
But let's, for a moment, talk about countries that starve their own people while at the same time stockpiling nuclear weapons and/or increasing military strength.
Israel has the highest poverty rate in the developed world at almost 21 percent; the rate at which the number of poor children in Israel increases rose by 60% in the past decade; and 72% of the working-age poor are actually employed.
US: 19.4 million Americans live in extreme poverty. This means their family’s cash income is less than half of the poverty line, or about $10,000 a year for a family of four. They represented 6.1 percent of all people and 45.1 percent of those in poverty
Canada talks all around it, but ...Canada to increase military spending 70 percent in 10 years
In 2008, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) noted that poverty had been steadily rising in Canada since the mid-1990s.
UK: After 2012/13 there was a sharp increase in the number of people using emergency foodbanks in London.
Okay, now where were we? Oh, yes: "North Korea starves its own people", has WMD's, and wants to "anthrax the US."
All together now, to the tune of "Saddam gassed his own people" had WMD's, and Islam tried to "anthrax the US."
