The People v. Bush/Cheney has been created to set the facts straight and expose all the lies told by our government in regards to inciting the invasion of Iraq by the military forces of the US and its allies.
I was impelled to this cause by an email I got from my friend Edward Meer in regards to a young soldier Tomas Young who passed away but not before he wrote a inspiring letter to President George W. Bush wherein his dying wish was for President Bush and Vice-President Cheney to be put on trial.
This major project is led by David LeGrand https://www.linkedin.com/pub/david-legrand/1/ab0/98a and Steven Mack (www.linkedin.com/pub/steven-mack/10/782/770) attorneys in Las Vegas who together with Edward Meer and others are now dedicated in building a network here in the USA but also worldwide to make this film a reality. We are building a team of dedicated professionals and will start an Indiegogo campaign following our efforts to build an online community.
We are passionate about this project and while many books and movies have been created related to the Iraq war, as of yet no dramatic trial of the principals who took us to this disastrous war of has taken place. We like to think that millions of people would prefer nothing better than to see them stand trial so indeed no person will be above the law.
We love America and our armed forces as much as anyone, but we believe that the truth of this sad episode in our history must be aired in order to cleanse ourselves from the taint of the lies and deceit that created so much misery for many and wealth for a few. Our position is not against any political party, but it will be we hope a fair and honest lesson in what lies, deceit and manipulation through presentation and innuendo can do to a powerful nation. We hope it will aid our great country being launched into the horror of another unjustified war in future times and be a moral lesson for all.
Thousands of our heroes died, tens of thousands were wounded physically and mentally and so much pain was caused to all the families and loved ones because of the lies told to the American people and the world by leaders. No one knows exactly how many Iraqis were killed or wounded but there are estimates up to a Million Iraqis have been killed and millions displaced in what was called “Nation Building”. We won the war and lost part of our collective soul.
So much money was spent on a wasteful venture and taken by war profiteers. Estimates are that this war cost America more that Two Trillion Dollars, more than 100% of our nation’s GDP for one year. It is no coincidence that before our troops came home our nation was in the worst economic crisis since 1929.
We pledge to be responsible guardians of all the funds contributed for this amazing project. We pledge that all funds all will be accounted for and the more excess funds we receive the more we can share to support other veteran causes.
We look forward to your support and participation, and wish you all the best in life and peace for all.
