An article on the propaganda war language, starting with western media use of 'toppling of Saddam' and 'Iraq war', drawing on similarities in calling the US war on Vietnam the “ Vietnam war”, to cover up the invasion and occupation with all its devastating consequences. Finishing with the communist comrades of the Iraqi Communist Party (ICP) calling it 'the change' or the “ aftermath of 2003”, as the ICP general secretary keeps reiterates. Haifa points out the irony that on 9th April 1972 Iraq signed an agreement of friendship and cooperation with the USSR blessed by the ICP. Today, Iraq has a similar agreement with the invaders/occupiers also blessed by the ICP!

U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, 4 Star General John Abizaid, Fed boss Alan Greenspan, President George W. Bush, Senator John McCain, Sarah Palin, Bush speechwriter David Frum, key war architect John Bolton, and a high-level National Security Council officer all say that the Iraq war was about oil.
