9/12: Never Forget
Every year in the United States, September 11 features newspapers, television shows and websites repeating the phrase “Never Forget.”
I agree that the death of 2,980 innocent civilians in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington DC is tragic. I agree we should not forget.
Today is September 12, 2015.
Today, we should agree to never forget that between 142 thousand and 165 thousand innocent civilians in Iraq have died because the United States declared war against a nation that was not involved in the attacks of September 11, 2001, on the basis of lies about fictitious weapons of mass destruction. That is a scale of innocent civilian death between 48 and 55 times as great as the deaths of September 11.
A majority of Americans cheered as this war began.
