There is nothing new in a GOVT LYING to their people to START A WAR. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any govt that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make. http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/lieofthecentury.php#ixzz3xcFO8No6
"It isn't training over there, it's war. Where losers die and there aren't any winners, just guys who turn into broken-down wrecks like my father. Now if trouble awaits me, I'm ready. But why go looking for it?"
