I thought it would be interesting to take a look back into history in terms of the relations that the U.S. has had with the Iraq government. As you will find, the same situation in the U.S. not having a post-war strategy in 1991 is again happening today.
The Web of Deceit is a documentary that should be watched by everyone. However, for those of us living in the U.S.A. it was never broadcast within the states. Another good reason to read and if you have available watching international news. In anycase, the Web of Deceit shows US backing and collaboration in the 1991 slaughter of the people who sought to overtake Saddam. You can watch a short two part clip of it on youtube.
