Well you know how it works
Keep the Faith and Fear the Fear it's the right wing psycho babble that keeps the vegetables of society in place until you need them to shout about security of our families and our country. It has nothing to do with years of aggressive foreign policy or invading a country because a leader who used to kiss your ass no longer liked the taste of it.
The US has just signed up to supply the largest weapons deal in the world, over £32 billion dollars of death machines to....
Saudi Arabia - the very same country that supplied the 9/11 killers to the US (possibly the oddest Trade deal ever?). Saudi Arabia has been in bed with the US for a long time swapping arms in return for sole (or main) contractor to supply Oil to the US (and when the Saudi's got a bit pissy a few years ago well we just invaded Iraq and stole their black gold). It's a cosy arrangement and the Bush family have slept with the 'no democracy here state' since the late 1950's.
This sycophantic alliance tends to put the neighbouring Arab States on their guard as they neither trust the Saudis or the US. And given that Iran's current President has an anti US imperialism view what better way to offer a veiled threat to your country by arming your neighbour?
And little Britain will of course continue its role as the creep who is prepared to be ridden like a lame cow by a psychopathic bull as long as there's a crumb of pie left for it.
It won't stop at Iran or North Korea it'll stop when the US regains economic control of countries that they can benefit from.
Which of course means that another 9/11 will happen and the fear factor can be reintroduced just before an Election.
None of this will be our fault the blame lies with those countries who had the audacity to react against military aggression.
Of course we could always blame Obama as he seems to be the get out of jail card for all the neocons who have long since wiped the blood of their Middle East exploits from their hands. I mean can a man who wasn't president during three middle east wars be responsible for them? Has Obama got special 'kill by proxy' tricks?
Small details do tend get lost when the right wing want to put a shine on their arrogance and a medal on their ignorance.
