Those who support the war are supporting it for the "liberation" of the Iraqi people. Does the media realize that 3/4th of the population don't know many 4 syllable words,
and liberation is one of them...So can you imagine how many people are totally ignorant of the real reasons behind this war...
First it was called "Attack on Iraq"- Kinda catchy, has the whole rhyme thing going on there.
Then it was called "War on Iraq"- this was a little closer to the nature of U.S. and British presence in Iraq, they were there to wage war on the entire country- people, archaeolgical sites, dictator and all.
NOW it's called the "Liberation of Iraq"- they use a word to give those pro-warrites a conscience. They will be freeing a whole country, that by the end of this war, will not exist since Bush and Co. plan to cut it up. At least the Iraqi people, the ones that are left alive and in slightly better shape then the dead, will be around to reap the efforts of "liberation" by being sucked into U.S. economic control. So welcome some sweatshops, major environmental pollution, and really nice cars...as if they didn't have a productive economy pre- US and Saddam involvement.
