“Iraq is much worse now than it was when we got in there. We’re killing more Iraqis than Saddam Hussein killed,” the Democrat said.
247 – Democrat Robert F. Kennedy Jr., son of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, who was assassinated and the nephew of former President John F. Kennedy, in a speech that his candidacy for the presidency of the United States targets militarism in the country.
He condemned the war in Iraq and recalled his uncle’s clash with the US Army. “When my uncle took office, two months later he was fighting his intelligence service and his army…in the middle of the Bay of Pigs, he realized they were lying to him. And he realized the role of the intelligence services: to provide a military-industrial complex with a constant war channel. Then the neoconservatives and the CIA went into Iraq and they “Regime change. We spent $8 trillion and what do we get out of it? Nothing… Iraq is now much worse than it was when we went there. We killed more Iraqis than Saddam Hussein ever did.”
