45-min Al-Jazeera documentary that neatly recounts how the war
criminals under George Bush planned from the first moments of 9/11 to
use the attacks on the Twin Towers as a
pretext to destroy Iraq. As a result, they laid waste to a large area of
the Middle East, spawned ISIS as an unintended consequence, nearly
bankrupted the US economy, and paved the way to a Trump White House.
Two of the programme's conclusions echo those of my book Israel and the
Clash of Civilisations: that the neocons intended to Balkanise Iraq,
not bring it democracy; and that their motive was in large part a desire
to neutralise Iraq, followed by other states like Iran, to aid Israel's
dominance of the region.
