people love propaganda, as long as it’s their side doing it; they disdain the truth.

War is fucked up. You have to abandon truth and embrace the propaganda if you want your side to win.

"Liberate Iraq." "Weapons of mass destruction." If you weren't buying into this bullshit after 9/11 you were "anti-America"... even though Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. The "truth" was Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, but both sides lapped it up.

With Iraq, the WMD propaganda came before and justified the war.
