Antiwar demonstration to commemorate 10 years of the war in Afghanistan -
Trafalgar Square, London - 08/10/11
"There are two types of humanity in war: there are worthy victims and unworthy victims... None of it happened. It didn't happen even as it was happening."
"The war on Afghanistan was a fraud right from the beginning, just as the attack on Iraq was a fraud and the invasion of Libya is a fraud."
At the very moment we are here, the United States, Britain, and France are bombing a city in Libya called Sirte. There are 100,000 people. Day and night, residential buildings, clinics, schools have been hit with fragmentation bombs and Hellfire missiles. . . .
The media refer to Sirte as a true Gaddafi stronghold. The Channel 4 reporter in Libya describes the attacks as "cutting off the head of the snake." For such heroic journalists, there are two types of humanity in war: there are worthy victims and unworthy victims.
The people of Sirte are unworthy victims, and therefore they are expendable both as people and as news.
In Iraq the people of Fallujah were also unworthy victims. American Marines, helped by the British, killed some 5,000 people there. . . .
As Harold Pinter would say . . . none of it happened. It didn't happen even as it was happening. It didn't matter. . . .
We've had ten years of such crimes that didn't happen, that didn't matter. . . .
The war on Afghanistan was a fraud right from the beginning, just as the attack on Iraq was a fraud and the invasion of Libya is a fraud.
John Pilger is a journalist and filmmaker. The text above is an edited partial transcript of his talk at the London anti-war protest on the tenth anniversary of the beginning of the war and occupation of Afghanistan. 
John Pilger - Breaking The Silence, Truth And Lies In The War On Terror [full film]
Directors: Steve Connelly, John Pilger
Writer: John Pilger
Stars: John Pilger
The documentary investigates George W Bush's "war on terror". In "liberated" Afghanistan, America has its military base and pipeline access, while the people have the warlords who are, says one women, "in many ways worse than the Taliban". In Washington, a series of remarkable interviews includes senior Bush officials and former intelligence officers. In the week that the Hutton inquiry into the death of the British scientist Dr David Kelly releases its report, a former senior CIA official tells Pilger that the whole issue of weapons of mass destruction was "95 per cent charade"
'The War You Don't See' now available online worldwide following US ban -On 7 June 2011, the Lannan Foundation in the United States banned the film and cancelled a US visit by John Pilger without explanation but the film is available to watch online (worldwide excluding Australia)
John Pilger says in the film: "We journalists... have to be brave enough to defy those who seek our collusion in selling their latest bloody adventure in someone else's country... That means always challenging the official story, however patriotic that story may appear, however seductive and insidious it is. For propaganda relies on us in the media to aim its deceptions not at a far away country but at you at home... In this age of endless imperial war, the lives of countless men, women and children depend on the truth or their blood is on us... Those whose job it is to keep the record straight ought to be the voice of people, not power."
John Richard Pilger (born 9 October 1939) is an Australian journalist and documentary maker, based in London.
