Iraq War: A History of Crimes and Genocide & The Unleashing of America’s New Global Militarism


by Michel Chossudovsky and Finian Cunningham:
"The adage that 'it is the victors who write history' in matters relating particularly to war and conflict is something of a euphemism when applied to recent military campaigns conducted by America and its NATO allies. For what is disputable – no, let us say repugnant – about the official accounts of these events is not merely a difference in emphasis or nuance on the matter, which the adage may infer. It is rather that the victors’ version of history is a wholesale fabrication, an obscene travesty of actual events. It is not a case of victors writing history, more one of victors 'violating history'."
