Forum Post: Mainstream Media Lie for War With Iran

The Pres., VP, Secty of State, generals, Secty of defense, corporate media, all swore Saddam had WMD and caused 9/11. All Lies. We lost 5000 GIs with 75,000 maimed in Iraq with over $2 trillion borrowed taxpayer money. 100's of thousands of Iraqi civilian casualties. This also destabilised the region, empowered Iran and let N. Korea get nukes.

Now the media and government are replaying the same bullshit for war with Iran. Endless war for profit and oil.

Ahem ... Corporate Media. There is no such thing as "mainstream media".

And yes. The war bells are ringing. The only way to prevent war with Iran will be a military coup - by the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Or exposure of another fraudulent war.

Do you really think the corporate media is going to do anything other than sell you advertising?

Check how the US media lies with this documentary made by American reporters.

Haim Saban, the billionaire Israeli American that owns Univision said the three ways to be influential in American politics,” are: make donations to political parties, establish think tanks, and control media outlets"

In a Univision documentary it is being alleged that Iran, Venezuela and Cuba are joining forces to plan attacks on the United States. According to the documentary the three countries are meeting in Mexico to plan terrorist attacks greater than 9/11 on the US. Some right-wing US lawmakers are taking these allegations seriously, or is it all propaganda?

It's bullshit, Likud propaganda so the US follows fanatical Israeli fundamentalists and blow up Iran which is NOT a threat.

Well its easier to pretend there are elusive WMDs than convince people to go to war over oil interests or defense contractor profits... not just public perception, but what GI wants to get killed over Boeing's bottom line?

but yup, they will continue to keep lying until the bombs start droppin'... Syria might placate them for a while, but Iran is certainly on the Horizon as soon as Obama gets delivered a second term.

Astute reasoning. They're the greatest salesmen around.
