Simulacra

According to Jean Baudrillard, simulacra are images, objects and ideas that are all copies of something that never existed. Think Disney (fairy castles, talking elephants). So why is the first Iraq war a simulacra? I really can’t get over this, we didn’t discuss this in class, so please, someone enlighten me. πŸ™‚

If someone knows this, please give me an answer. I’m really eager to know the answer. πŸ™‚ Thanks in advance. πŸ™‚
