Es war ein Krieg, der mit einer Lüge begann und mittels fortgesetzter Lügen in die Länge gezogen wurde; er war weder aus der Luft noch am Boden zu gewinnen, egal, wie viele zusätzliche Truppen ins Feld geschickt wurden; er war von Kriegsgräueln und Kriegsverbrechen, von Folter, Gefangenenmord und Massakern gekennzeichnet, ging mit einer faktischen... more...
