Every time I see this phrase ("the war in Iraq") I cringe and cough uncontrollably. Isn't a "war" supposed to be a conflict between two or more countries that can't be resolved peacefully? This "operation" should be referred to as "the hostile takeover of a country to ensure the socio-economic status quo." The sickest part is that so many US citizens are buying into the brainwashing about democracy (when it does not even exist in the United States). Who's really in control? Certainly not the president of the United States (puppet) or even the US government. There are satanic forces at work on this planet exploiting the world's population with deception, fear mongering, and manipulation. These criminals must be exposed and brought to justice.
