Propaganda, Lies, and War

Zero Hedge is running a great article titled "Propaganda, Lies, and War" by Jim Miller and I wanted to direct your attention to it:
One would think with such a rich history of political patronage in the death industry, Americans would be adamantly opposed to war.  Yet the usual players in Washington are once again pounding on the war drums in the name of spreading American values.  The target this time is Iran and at least one presidential candidate in this fall’s election has vowed to use military force on a nation that hasn’t bowed down and kissed Uncle Sam’s jackboot.  The problem is Iran has the hubris of refusing to be bullied around by the U.S.  Such an attitude undermines American imperialism in front of the rest of the world.   It must be stomped out by any means necessary.
The article is filled with a lot of good information and hopefully it will set you straight if you think the US military "protects freedom."
