How Does The US Public Keep Getting Duped Into Going To War

This is a guest post from reader Dave J.
Those who are interested in how the public gets duped into following these war mongers need to look no further than these recent propaganda videos where the message was clearly pro US military force.

Nayirah al-Ṣabaḥ (Arabic: نيره الصباح‎), called “Nurse Nayirah” in the media, was a fifteen-year-old Kuwaiti girl, who alleged that she had witnessed the murder of infant children by Iraqi soldiers in Kuwait, in verbal testimony to the U.S. Congress, in the run up to the 1991 Gulf War. Her testimony, which was regarded as credible at the time, has since come to be regarded as wartime propaganda. The public relations firm Hill & Knowlton, which was in the employ of Citizens for a Free Kuwait, had arranged the testimony. Nayirah’s testimony was widely publicized. Hill & Knowlton, which had filmed the hearing, sent out a video news release to Medialink, a firm which served about 700 television stations in the United States. That night, portions of the testimony aired on ABC’s Nightline and NBC Nightly News reaching an estimated audience between 35 and 53 million Americans. Seven senators cited Nayirah’s testimony in their speeches backing the use of force. President George Bush repeated the story at least ten times in the following weeks.

Recently Susan Rice on BenGhazi.

“But our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous — not a premeditated — response to what had transpired in Cairo. In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive VIDEO that was disseminated.”

More propaganda can easily shown of how the military complex continues to use propaganda to encourage all Americans to support our military to be used in an offensive way instead of remaining at home in a defensive secure position.

We need to bring our boys and girls home!

Look at Syria’s recent history.
