No lessons learned

Glenn Greenwald points out that we’ve apparently learned nothing at all:

Here we have almost half of the U.S. Senate — liberals, moderates and conservatives — jointly demanding an escalation with Iran and all but endorsing a war before the U.S. Government even proposes one. Has the American political and media class learned a single lesson from the Iraq debacle?

  1. Erich Vieth says:

    CNN is now fear-mongering that Iran is testing missiles. Typical corporate media BS, according to Glenn Greenwald:

    There was a time, when I first began writing about political issues six years ago or so, that I thought that the American media learned some sort of lesson from their humiliating behavior in the run-up to the Iraq War and would behave differently — more skeptically and adversarially — when it comes time for the next big war. My mistake, of course, was in assuming that what they did in pushing the Iraq War was some sort of deviation from or violation of what they are designed to do rather than the supreme expression of their core purpose.
