This brings us nicely on to the topic of what methods are being employed by liars to hide the truth?
I’ll have to begin with the one that has bothered me the most. WAR. That war is helpful and that it can bring about peace and eventually lasting peace. It seems quite evident that from quite a long history of fact finding and evidence gathering that war does not create peace. It doesn’t even stop the bloodshed, because by definition it uses bloodshed to stop bloodshed. War begets war and violence begets more violence. Another lie associated with this is that terrorism can be defeated by using and deploying weapons, especially those of mass destruction. Numerous conflicts and two major world wars later we still see not less but more terrorism. And another lie on top of this, that the actions of our western governments is not in itself an act of terrorism but of war, despite that any dictionary you look inside will describe the act we use in this as terrorism indeed.
The war in Iraq was as we clearly know now, based on false evidence and concealed details of our security agencies. Lies and misinformation yet again. And reportedly almost half a million people have now died as a direct result of this action and many more millions displaced from their homes and livelihoods. An illegal military intervention based upon false data for reason other than the said goal, in which 179 of our British soldiers died. Tony Blair was directly responsible for this when it has been proven that he knew the weapons of mass destruction were extremely unlikely to exist. And to add insult to injury, the fact that after his despicable actions he was made a ‘Peace envoy’ to the middle east, beggars belief. Let me repeat this, peace envoy? Are you kidding?
