"It is not civilizations that promote clashes. They occur when old-fashioned leaders look for old-fashioned ways to solve problems by rousing their people to armed confrontation." -Kenichi Ohmae, The End Of The Nation State, (New York: The Free Press 1995), p. 11.

Why of course the people don't want war. ... That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. Hermann Goering, Adolph Hitler's heir-apparent

There is more propaganda in a democracy than in a dictatorship. ... The United States is unusual among the industrial democracies in the rigidity of the system of ideological control -'indoctrination,' we might say - exercised through the mass media. -Seminal linguist Noam Chomsky

An Act of Creation?
Meet The Press, March 11, 2007

So, according to establishment media icons Tim Russert and Ted Koppel, we're heading into "Our Children's Children's War" -- or "The Long War" as Koppel calls it. It could last for 50 years if the "Cold War" is any guide says Koppel -- and according to U.S. General John Abizaid, it could "last for generations."

This sort of media is an integral part of the war induction process practiced on Americans, particularly since the defeat in Vietnam. It's become S.O.P.. This sort of coverage is an important part of what Chomsky nails as "the system of ideological control -'indoctrination,' ...exercised through the mass media" and is an essential part of the act of literally creating such a war by preparing and programming "we the people" to go along.

Iran's next in the cross-hairs.

This is the program the War Party and the "military-industrial-congressional complex" has planned for you, your children and your grandchildren.

He supported his writing habit for over 30 years by beating casinos at their own games.
