Lying is as old as humanity itself. We all tell ourselves the biggest lie of all, but most don’t remember it until our final moments close in.
So much military mayhem over the centuries has been blamed on religious differences, but wars are always about material gain and blaming creeds for them is simply a clever way of covering up crimes being committed under the rubric of some pretentiously noble but invariably criminal rationalization.
Two of America’s longest wars, Iraq and Afghanistan, provide us perfect examples of this — Iraq for its oil and Afghanistan for its drugs, the two main commodities that keep the Deep State in power.
