Forget the US War Propaganda Machine, do you want to know what really happened in Iraq?


With the Chilcot Enquiry well underway I thought this vid might well be appropriate.

A chronicle which provides a rare window into the international perception of the Iraq War, courtesy of Al Jazeera, the Arab world's most popular news outlet, this video was roundly criticized by Cabinet members and Pentagon officials for reporting with a pro-Iraqi bias.

Includes shocking and disturbing footage that you have not so far and almost certainly never will see in the mainstream media.

Yeah, interesting to see another slant on it, isn't it? It's amazing what a bit of Propaganda can do to provoke the viewer into anything from extreme patriotism to... well, revolution, mass hysteria, ...sleep?? ..acht, .or whatever they want I guess?!

It was the way I read it. If you didn't, I take it back of course! Maybe the use of question marks.

What I like about propaganda is that even the word propaganda is propaganda!

A large number of Al Jazeera staff once worked for the BBC, so it's not surprising the vaults contain stuff like this.
