“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

‘MURDERGON admits 23 civilian deaths by US military operations in 2020 – far fewer than claimed by NGOs’
Washington has released unclassified information detailing how many civilians died worldwide as a result of US military actions in 2020. After reviewing hundreds of reports, the Pentagon admitted to 23 unintentional deaths.
“Approximately” 23 civilians were killed and 10 others injured in 2020 US military operations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, according to the US Department of Defense’s assessment. The unclassified parts of its annual report on civilian casualties were made public on Wednesday, with the Pentagon noting that each section “may include a classified annex.”
The US military said it had formally investigated “all-source reporting” assessed as “relevant and credible” in compiling the report, which must be annually submitted to congressional defense committees. Those sources include information received from non-governmental organizations (NGOs), as well as from media and social media, and private individuals. The Pentagon has also reviewed and reassessed information on civilian casualties resulting from its military actions in the previous years, it said.
In Afghanistan, 165 reports of civilian casualties related to US forces’ operations were received in 2020. Seven of those reports have been assessed as credible, with the Pentagon admitting “approximately 20 civilians killed and approximately 5 civilians injured” both in its airstrikes and ground operations. The civilian death toll in Afghanistan – where Washington is conducting operations “to support the Government,” “mitigate the threats posed by violent extremist organizations” and “promote stability,” is the highest in the report.
