White House chief of Staff Andrew Card famously said – in explaining why the Bush administration waited until September to make its case for war in Iraq:
From a marketing point of view, you don’t introduce new products in August.
War is – indeed – marketed just like soda or toothpaste.
Everyone knows that truth is the first casualty of war.
Countries need to lie about their enemies in order to demonize them sufficiently so that the people will support the war.
That is why intelligence “failures” – such as the following – are so common:
- It is also now well-accepted that the Gulf of Tonkin Incident which led to the Vietnam war was a fiction (confirmed here).
That is also why governments from around the world have used false flag incidents for thousands of years to sell their people on whatever wars they wish to launch.
Of course, the demonization process is catapulted far and wide by the mainstream media. Indeed, the corporate media is instrumental in spreading the lies so as to support war.
