Cindy Sheehan - Intended Consequences: The Imperial Meat Wagon Rolls On

I recently saw an article in the UK Guardian about how the global anti-Iraq War movement was correct about predicting that the US led invasion and bloody occupation would lead to “chaos and instability.”
Well, “duh.” And, I hate to say this, but, of course, in the place wherever these invasions and bloody occupations are planned, whichever war criminal was in attendance, knew it good and damn well, too. How can a nation’s natural resources be stolen and empire be spread if the population of a resource rich nation is not divided? Ever heard the phrase, “divide and conquer?”

After many years and multiple exposés disproving the “reasons” and “justifications” for going into Iraq, we know it wasn’t because of WMD or 9/11 or anything about defending Americans or spreading freedom, right?

Now, as members of the anti-Iraq War movement “predicted” and the Empire intended, the violence in Iraq is continuing and by all accounts, unfortunately escalating.

My son and thousands of other US troops were killed in the bloodiest part of the invasion and occupation starting in 2003, but millions of Iraqi have been slaughtered, injured, displaced, and made desperately ill by depleted uranium and other toxins and poisons delivered by the “freedom bringers” of the US military.
