Breaking: Entire Nation Experiencing Collective Amnesia About Iraq War
In the first documented case of total national amnesia, the population of the United States of America appears to have completely forgotten the events leading up to the invasion and subsequent occupation of the nation of Iraq
Experts, who were initially made aware of the unprecedented phenomenon by the shocking amount of public support for cruise missile attacks against the Syrian government, are baffled.
“It’s like the entire Iraq war never happened,” said Dr. Davinder Easwaran of Oxford University. “The false flags, the propaganda against the nation’s leader, the lies about weapons of mass destruction, the immediate full-throated support by mainstream media outlets for regime change — they appear to have forgotten the entire thing ever happened, and are now reacting to the Syrian situation as though we did not watch this exact same scenario play out in the exact same way between 2002 and 2003.”
Conversations with resident Americans seem to corroborate Easwaran’s claims.
“I’m just glad our president is finally doing something, you know?” said Todd Chen of San Jose, California. “What’s the worst that could happen?”
“Well I mean obviously if he’s gassing his own people, Assad needs to be taken out,” said Sally Beaton of Memphis, Tennessee. “I’d support a direct military invasion to topple his regime, wherein the Syrian people would surely greet our troops as liberators.”
