Those of us who do not remember history are forever condemned to repeat it. Could a movie prevent our nation from waging another deadly, unnecessary war? Rachel Maddow’s new documentary on MSNBCHUBRIS: Selling the Iraq War, might be able to accomplish exactly that.

hubris: selling the iraq war

Just ten years ago, on March 19, 2003, George W. Bush began a massive occupation of Iraq that would kill hundreds of thousands of people, and would cost well over $3 trillion dollars. The two flimsy reasons that Bush used to justify that war were ultimately proven to be lies; there were never any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, nor any significant links between Saddam and Al Qaeda.

Smoking Guns & Yellowcake Uranium Lies

It is now public knowledge that the Bush administration openly lied our country into war, but somehow nobody seems to talk about it very much. The many deceptive fallacies, war crimes  and pervasive torture perpetrated and promoted by Bush and his minions seem to have just fallen down into a lost memory rabbit hole; but Maddow, with the help of David Corn, MSNBC and Michael Isikoff , is now helping to shed some light upon these outright government frauds. In Hubris, Rachel Maddow chronicles the blatant mendacity that led our nation into an unnecessary war of choice in Iraq.

Bush openly swindled the nation into war under the pretense of non-existent weapons of mass destruction. The rationale for that deadly catastrophe was a deliberate hoax. Unfortunately this powerful documentary can not prevent the horrific debacle that was the Iraq war, but perhaps this well researched movie will help remind us to severely examine claims made by boisterous war hawks, when they loudly demand more war and killing.

Can our country now learn from our past mistakes, and avoid being deceived into yet another unjust bloody invasion? Recently elements from the Obama administration have been leaking dubious cables and information concerning alleged chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria, in the context of justifying also invading that nation. Does this story sound familiar?

    Coincidentally, I was just reviewing an album with a song specifically about this foreign policy debacle. Perhaps this should have been the soundtrack to Hubris. Consider this lyric:

    Should have thought it through
    Before they left it up to you
    Last best hope
    retrograde reality

    Shanghai commandeer
    Exploit anger and our fear
    Pretext of convenience
    Self-ordained divinity

    EXTEND THE LONG ARM
    OF THE LAW
    CAN’T REACH AS FAR AS WE WOULD FALL
    WRITING’S ON THE WALL

    Rile up the rabble with more
    patriotic prattle
    Platform any indecency
    Vilify objection for the
    sake of our protection
    Shout down dissension to
    ensure democracy

    EXTEND THE LONG ARM OF THE LAW
    CAN’T REACH AS FAR AS WE WOULD FALL
    GUNBOAT CONVERSE DIPLOMACY
    AND IT ALL SEEMED LIKE A BAD DREAM

    Should have thought it through
    Before they left it up to you
    Last gasp for morality

    (evidently I cannot post the song link here, but the band is called The Ready Stance and has a website at readystance dot com. Another song, Real America speaks to similar far-right shenanigans)

    Significant changes in climate have continually occurred throughout geologic time. For instance, the Medieval Warm Period, from around 1000 to1200 AD (when the Vikings farmed on Greenland) was followed by a period known as the Little Ice Age. Since the end of the 17th Century the “average global temperature” has been rising at a low steady rate showing mild warming of 0.6 to 0.8 C; although from 1940 – 1970 temperatures actually dropped, leading to a Global Cooling scare.

    The “hockey stick”, a poster boy of both the UN’s IPCC and Canada’s Environment Department, ignores historical recorded climatic swings, and has now also been proven to be flawed and statistically unreliable as well. It is a computer construct and a faulty one at that.

      this bitches network was PIVOTAL as a megaphone to push us into war.
      Now after a decade of hell, MSM presstitute whores want to whine and moan and be “outraged” at how they were lied to??? They knew EXACTLY what the score was as it was all unfolding. these criminals should all be indicted under Nurmeberg laws, along with their co-conspirators at NYT, CNN, NBC, CBS etc etc. Tell this evil witch to stuff her phony ‘outrage’ up her pampered, sold-out ass.

      THEY were the main vehicle for the lying.

    The usual liberal lies. We know Saddam Hussein was working on nukes and other weapons of mass destruction. The Democrats believed that in the 1990s when Clinton was president. Hussein had plenty of time to get them out of the country before the invasion. They went to Syria and Iran.
