i know a lot of people ( including myself ) supported the war because we thought we would get cheap oil. we knew we were lied to about all this national security **** but we didn't mind then. but when oil prices went up i felt betrayed.
thats when i realized if the oil prices were really going to go down they wouldn't have to lie to us about the reasons for the war. in other words its an illusion that when somebody is lying to you it can be good for you. white lies is a false concept.
what i thought is to keep military strong they need to be educated in the art of dying. i mean what kind of a pussy army is it that didn't see combat ? who cares if you have a lot of weapons if you hand them out to a bunch of pussies. i thought it would be good for the army to have a couple thousand soldiers get killed.
bottom line is back then EVERYBODY KNEW we were being lied to but we liked it then.
but seeing the whole picture later on i regret having held such a view back then. i now recognize that:
THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE
