And it's just a sad excuse to say it's a live or die situation when the whole thing was supposed to be over in a matter of weeks, cost nothing, and prove to be a necessity.
And yeah - the real tragedies are when the innocent families get blown up in the mix in big numbers.
To quote a line from "wag the dog", the truth doesn't fucking matter when you can make it whatever you want it to be. I don't think they dismiss truth. The error is thinking that there is only one. The US war machine wrestles with this idea, and puts forth a truth under the guise that it's the truth.
