Ron Paul on the Greatest Terror Attack In Modern History – Guess Where?

The media focuses like a laser on terror attacks like we saw in Brussels last week. The endless news cycle pores over every detail, every angle. But what happens when US-backed Saudi jets bomb a market in Yemen, killing five times as many as died in Brussels? Silence. What about the million people who died directly or indirectly because of the US-led attack on Iraq, which was illegal and based on lies? One million people. Is this the greatest terrorist attack in modern times — and why is it not looked at in this manner? Shouldn’t those responsible for the carnage be brought to justice? More on the media’s selective coverage of terrorism in today’s Liberty Report:

  1. “Shouldn’t those responsible for the carnage be brought to justice?”

    If I yell “FIRE!” in a crowded auditorium, and the resultant stampede kills people, I will be tried for manslaughter.

    If a US politician tells lies to get the USA into another war in which thousands die, he is given a promotion!

    There’s zilch difference between the two acts, except the greater amount of death and destruction in wars.

  2. Dr Paul is correct. Physicians for Social Responsibility, a respected Nobel Peace Laureate medical group, says, “This investigation comes to the conclusion that the war has, directly or indirectly, killed around 1 million people in Iraq, 220,000 in Afghanistan and 80,000 in Pakistan, i.e. a total of around 1.3 million. Not included in this figure are further war zones such as Yemen. The figure is approximately 10 times greater than that of which the public, experts and decision makers are aware of and propagated by the media and major NGOs. And this is only a conservative estimate. The total number of deaths in the three countries named above could also be in excess of 2 million, whereas a figure below 1 million is extremely unlikely.” (1)

    Now add 1.7 million killed by Bill Clinton’s Iraq sanctions (1), 575,000 of whom were children <5 (2), which Mrs Clinton supported, and 470,000 to date in Syria (3). The Libyan intervention and its aftermath have cost another 50,000 lives (1). That comes to approximately 3.5 million deaths as a result of policies Mrs Clinton supported, which puts her well past Pol Pot. I believe, as international law asserts, that officials should be held accountable for the foreseeable consequences of policies they support. Furthermore, one gains insight into the values and judgment of politicians by considering the very real and devastating effects of their policies.


  3. My oppinion are that today’s policies here in the west are murderous, since we do not have any leadership. Our current Democracy is not leading us anywhere other than to Dictatorship.
