The Fabricated Pretexts for War

A brief selection of the fabricated pretexts for war, employed by the big power in recent decades. This is far from a comprehensive list, just some examples to inform and remind.

The US war in Vietnam, the 'First' Gulf War against Iraq (1990-91), the Global War on Terror (9/11/2001), the 'Second' Gulf War (2001), the NATO war on Libya (2011), the western Proxy War against Syria (2011-). The propaganda used to justify war was deliberate (ie. not a mistake) and therefore criminal in nature. War crimes trials are long overdue.
