Wiki ‘Leaks’ the Truth About U.S. War Crimes Against Iraq

by Len Hart, the Existentialist Cowboy

To be expected, the U.S. government/military denounces the latest Wikileaks expose of U.S. atrocities and war crimes against Iraq.

How the Iraq War Destroyed the US Economy

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy Wars reduce the GDP, destroy jobs, reduce productivity, and increase the trade deficit! If wars are ‘bad’ for the economy, then how are they sold so easily? The quick response: they are sold with focus group tested bullshit!
