Historian and political campaigner, Tariq Ali, says it’s surprising that no-one has been held responsible for creating havoc in Iraq.

Iraq: a decade after invasion

RTAmerica·Mar 19, 2013

Ten years later, the effects of the US-led war in Iraq are still being felt. With hundreds of thousands lives lost in the Middle Eastern country, including American soldiers, reports indicate that America is expected to pay trillions of dollars for the mission. Former US Senator Mike Gravel (D-AK) and Sara Flounders, co-director of the International Action Center, joins us to discuss.

  7. RT does a god job in explaining this war. I wish that all cable companies carried RT but that wont happen any time soon.

    Empire of chaos. Covert tyranny. Ethnic extermination. Sanctioned ecocide. Heritage mayhem. Corporate anarchy.

    The “government” we deserve? This is Hell on Earth.

    What’s a heaven for? Tony Blair and his faithful friends evidently.

    So, who the hell are “we?” Us (as in human beings) or “the elect, US cabalists?”

    • David Llewellyn Foster

      By the way, “faith” in what? In deranged narcissistic cognitive prejudices obviously ~ insidiously packaged, spun and “marketed” to everyone possible.

      In short, this is the corrupt exercise of privilege to institutionally poison the global polity.

      It is not just an abuse of the public mind, it is a crime against the spirit of mankind.

      Courts of “justice?!”
