Another blog by me, Kim.
Our friend Richard at Hawaii People's Fund sent us an e-mail with a link to some great information today. It is called Iraq: The War Card: Orchestrated Deception on the Path to War, and is a section of The Center for Public Integrity's website. There are some analytical commentaries and also an archive of 'old' (2002 seems like a long time ago already) video footage of Bush administration people hyping the case for war, an excellent bibliography, and so on. I just spent the last 3 or 4 hours reviewing the information and it is very good. There's actually no "new" information here - I think we pretty much read up on this stuff while we were researching our own Iraq War episode - but I am very happy that some people are willing to take the time to put so much information together in a way that I can go back and rethink what has happened.
Pinky is always reminding us how important it is to study history. If we don't study history of course it's going to be harder to see what's being done to us right now in the present. Like Iran. If the American people do not stop their government from warring on Iran, I will be even more disgusted and angry.
Now I am reading about How to Buy a President. I know I am not in a position to suggest ideas but I would like to see a companion website called How to Have Democracy. (not fake democracy)
