Not only that, but wars, threats of wars, percieved enemies, really bad adders, OIL, resources, pipelines, refineries, strategic necessity, etc. are all public relations gambits used by our Military/Industrial/Corporate complex to gin up wars and threats of wars to generate that old capitalist ally, really big profits. Separating the factors generating profit from the facts that would inhibit profits is a truly tricky business and that is where your favorite politician is bought and sold. Not only that but also an opportunity for fossil fuel distribution networks to bring more product into the profitable supply lines. War and threats of war is just "good business" the US of A way. Then the public relations specialists work hard to make the soft headed believe that the threats are real and the bogey man is just outside the back door and he gonna get ya'. Some o' his victims are working hard as debate politics typists and just spewing those chunks. Those public relation mind benders are good, eh?
