Recently, we are witnessing the Media outlets accelerate their war drums and calls for an attack on Iran.
We hear them say:
"Iran is a country full of terrorists."
"Iran is a country full of barbarians."
"Iranians hate the West because of their lifestyle."
"Iran is going to nuke Israel."
The Media's Multi-Billion Dollar funded propagandas are repeated over and over until people start to believe it as fact.
