american media already at war with iran

glenn greenwald on “the coordinated propaganda campaign” by the US Conglomerate Media Machine pre-selling a war with Iran before the government even tells them to (aside from the military, which has far more influence in the US than most people realize perhaps) [newser]

It’s just remarkable to watch the American media depict Iran as the threatening, aggressive party here. Literally on a daily basis, political and media figures in both the U.S. and Israel openly threaten to attack Iran and debate how the attack should happen with a casualness that most people use to contemplate what to have for lunch.

[…]

I used to find somewhat baffling this bizarre aspect of American public opinion: time and again, Americans support whatever new war of aggression their government proposes, then come to regret that support and decide the war was a “mistake,” only to demonstrate that they learned no lessons from their “mistake” by eagerly supporting whatever the next proposed war is.
