“As a rule, men worry more about what they can’t see than about what they can.”.
I believe that if people can know everything that they possibly can except for military secrets. The truth always helps people make healthier decisions. It might hurt a proportion o the people of the world but it helps in general. Lying cannot be tolerated. Throughout lies we let the masses run blind against many facts. They make the minorities get crushed under lies and get killed for it. We should have the right to know the truth before we decide for ourselves or for someone else.
“Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth”
Throughout history we have suffered greatly because people are so blind to the truth and cannot simply ask questions due to the greater powers commanding them to do so. Some events could have easily been avoided if people were allowed to do some research.
“There is no doubt that the regime of Saddam Hussein possesses weapons of mass destruction. As this operation continues, those weapons will be identified, found, along with the people who have produced them and who guard them.”
This is what the American government said when they were going in to Iraq. They blocked all kinds of media that were willing to do the research about it. İf they simply found out that this was not real and that Saddam Hussein had no ties with 9/11. If the right organizations were able to say that there were no W.M.Ds in İraq and the Americans were not allowed to manipulate Intel, this would have not happened.
“We conclude that the Intelligence Community was dead wrong in almost all of its pre-war judgments about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction.”

“I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil.”
UN internal memo is predicting that 100,000 direct and 400,000 indirect casualties have occurred as a result of the invasion. Numbers greatly vary in different sources. However we all know that this whole mess is based on wrong Intel or one would say, manipulated Intel.
Lies are only told for ones own benefits. The Americans did not invade for their people. They invaded for the oil. İ believe that if people were able to say this in time, this would have never happened. The classified reports released with Wiki Leaks shows us that we knew what was shown to us as a nuclear research facility was in fact a simple power plant. Lying will not get us anywhere. We need to know the truth and be able say it.
