I'm hoping it's just a bunch of guys beating their chests, but it sounds a lot more like war drums to me. Watch this video of Ron Paul on CNBC as the hosts laugh at his idea that maybe we don't need to go to war with another country:
Of course, NBC is owned by one of the largest arms manufacturers on Earth, and so war is good for their bottom line. It's funny to hear these guys talk about what a threat it would be if someone else besides them made weapons, but their hypocrisy is only half the story.
Not only are they trying to frighten Americans into a war, they're trying to frighten the Iranians into one as well. The more frightened people become, the more they are convinced that there is a threat - some monster hiding under their bed, the easier they are to control.
I'm not sure if the only thing we have to fear is fear itself, but it does seem to be our biggest problem.
