The lies they tell

Updated on November 8, 2014


We hear so much from the government and military. We are told one thing, then another. One source tells us one thing, then another source tells us another; what is right, who is right?
We were told that Bin Laden was the one who planned the attack on the US on September 11, yet, there was no concrete evidence of this. Just the words of politicians-who we know can't be trusted.
Then we were told that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, the Government had satellite images, which later came out to be decades old.
Then we were told that they killed Saddam, yet we know that Saddam had six look-alikes, so how do we know they killed the right one. Well, we were told that they took DNA from a hairbrush from one of his compounds. How do we know that a look-alike didn't use that hairbrush.
Then, later we are told that the US stormed a compound in Pakistan and they killed Bin Ladden, even though many reports came out in 2001 that he had died due to kidney failure. We know he was on dialyses back then already, and we know that he would not have lived that long with the serious health issues he had.
Other reports told us that the compound was empty, nobody lived there. The people in the neighbourhood said that the neighbourhood children played there and that people from the neighbourhood stored things there.
Also, we never saw any pictures or video and we never saw a body.
American soldiers came out privately and anonymously stating that they never saw a body, and sailors from the ship said they never saw a body, and that nothing happened.
Now I know people will say that how can we trust the people who lived near the compound, but I ask you, "How can we trust the US government?" they have lied to us many times.
Remember the faked rescue of Jessica Lynch? The government said that while other soldiers were killed, she single handedly fought and killed the enemy, then she was taken hostage and the marines stormed the hospital and rescued her. (Short story version) However, she came forward and told us that she never fired a single shot, her gun malfunctioned, and she lay on the floor of the vehicle terrified and wounded, then people took her to the hospital, patched her up, after days they put her in an ambulance and drove to a US checkpoint, the soldiers ran them off, they tried to return her a few times. Later on, the marines did storm the hospital firing their guns, but they were shooting blanks, and it was all staged for the camera crew.
So, the lies they tell.
This brings me back again to the staged event that took place in Pakistan. Bin Laden wasn't there, the compound was empty, he died in 2001. Why are we being told that a SEAL killed him? I don't know, it could be for a number of reasons, or perhaps the government and Obama need some kind of a boost for his last two years in office. Perhaps there is some other reason we do not know of yet.
Either way, it is imperative that we all question what we are told, we are lied to by politicians and the military on a regular basis.
I always liken the days we are in to George Orwell's book, "1984".
Do not be fooled, do not listen to the propaganda, ask questions and look at everything with an open mind and a clear head.
To love your country is to question the actions of your government and to hold them accountable, to hate your country is to stay silent, lay down and do nothing.

      Good hub. We don't know anything. Impossible to argue against.

      Thank you for your comment. I served i the Military. I know about the lies and the cover ups all to further an agenda-which is never told to the masses. You are right, the terms such as patriotism, national security, etc are always used to sell their actions and it is all done by the shedding of innocent blood.

      Great article, and you make a very good point. I never believed they killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan either. I am more inclined to believe that Hugo Chavez was a more likely victim. I was in the military for 6 years. I threw garbage and refuse into the ocean everyday we were at sea. This is no small matter when this is multiplied by every active ship in the U.S. Navy since 1775.

      I was ordered to do so by my superiors. Every day of the year this practice continues, and has gone on since the very beginning. It was during my time of service that I began to question the lies and hypocrisy of the U.S. government. The lies begin with Columbus and continue to this day, while racism, nationalism, and patriotism are used to further confound the masses.
