We must have an enemy. More exactly, “these guys” must have an enemy. The US must have an enemy. We must follow the US in having their enemy – except when it comes to Central America.
Why must we have enemies, remembering they are just human beings whose governments we do not like? There have been many times when we have no liked what our own government has done and is doing.
People will lie if they are allowed to get away with it. So what is wrong that this is happening repeatedly.

These lies need to be explored in greater depth, including Pearl Harbour and more questionably 9/11.
Earlier this month, Juan Cole was interviewed on the History Channel. He is apparently relaxed about the possibility of war, suggesting it is not likely – I hope he is right.
