Fool Me Twice

By Paul Edwards

June 23/24, 2019 "Information Clearing House" -  Yogi Berra experienced “deja vu, all over again”.  Marx revised Hegel, saying history repeats itself first as tragedy, then as farce.  Bush the Lesser, riffing on who to blame for being fooled, got lost in his trope. Now unctuous, obtuse Pompeo is selling war on Iran, bringing all three to mind.

You’d heard the one about the Gulf of Tonkin LBJ pitched?  And the one about Iraqi WMD Step’nfetchit Powell sold, ominously shaking a vial of foot powder?  And Obama’s somber rap about “Assad gassing his own people”?  

The question now is whether the American Public will do Charlie Brown to Lucy’s football trick again?  Sophisticated tech makes it harder for psychos in power to just lie.  They need plausible visuals to back their bullshit but, used to relying on lies alone, they’re not clear on the concept.
