War with Iran?

American Leftist

Voices for war in the US have privileged access to the media, with outlets like the New York Times, NPR and PBS providing a veneer of understated, urbane legitimacy to the more populist, shrill expressions of militarism found elsewhere. Journalists and foreign policy analysts perpetually reference a non-existent nuclear weapons program, subject only to subsequent, tepid criticisms buried within newspapers and websites.

It really does seem that the war pigs want a jolly little war with Iran. I mean, what could go wrong with that?

Juan Cole notes that Iran’s spending is too small to even appear on the chart (which is from Democratic Underground)

Why is the US so belligerent, always wanting more wars? Could it be we have an economy based on war?
