Food and medicine for the Iraqi people
American President Bush said he invaded Iraq "to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, to end Saddam Hussein's support for terrorism, and to free the Iraqi people." But all the reasons Bush gave for his war on Iraq were false.
Disinformation about Iraq was produced by a special unit within the Pentagon run by Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and Feith. The unit operated outside the normal intelligence channels of the CIA and DIA. Its purpose was to create false intelligence to enable Bush to initiate war with Iraq.
The concern that Saddam had stored large amounts of chemical and biological weapons was widely believed, although wrong. However, in September 2002, then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the weapons were buried so deeply that "airstrikes alone" could not eliminate them. Two months later, the National Intelligence Council reported to Rumsfeld that the underground weapons were "vulnerable to conventional, precision-guided, penetrating munitions because they are not deeply buried." Rumsfeld did not pass the information along to senators.
For six and one-half years the Bush regime relied on coercion, intimidation, war, and threats of war. Diplomacy and good will have been shunned.
Speaking upon his return to the White House from the presidential retreat in the Maryland mountains March 23, 2003, Bush said, "I was told this morning in my briefings that humanitarian aid should begin moving -- massive amounts of humanitarian aid should begin moving within the next 36 hours. And that's going to be very positive news for a lot of people who have suffered a long time under Saddam Hussein."
Bush stated, "We have an obligation -- and this is just not America, it's coalition forces -- have an obligation to put food and medicine in places so the Iraqi people can live a normal life and have hope." He said that U.S. and coalition forces are doing everything possible to protect innocent life.
Although completely unreported by the western media and the U.S. government, the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 by U.S.-led coalition forces was in large part an oil currency war which has been responsible for the death of at least 150,000 civilians.
