"So, given that Iran poses no real threat to the United States and is not even a regional threat because it is dependent on exporting its oil, why are so many American politicians baying for war against the Islamic Republic? To get an answer, we should recall what H. L. Mencken said: The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary." (03/01/12)
