It's straight out of 1984. The need for a constant unending war. All part and of social control. I likeen the "War on Terror" or the "search" for Bin Laden to the purpose of Emmanuel Goldstein in 1984
I find it not too odd that Julian Assange was busted so quickly and extradited with such speed and meanwhile Osama Bin Laden is still hold up in a cave in Pakistan (our ally) and they can't get Roman Polansky out of Europe for rape. When ever the US wants or needs to discredit some one they are attacked with this aura of a sexual pervert, either contrived or Karl Roved.
Your remark about 1984 a book and film that should be viewed along with "Wag the Dog"
This is a line from 1984 I find interesting:
"In some ways she was far more acute than Winston,and far less susceptable to party propaganda.
Once when he happened in some connection to mention the war against Eurasia,she startled him by saying casually that in her opinion the war was not happening.The rocket bombs that fell on London were probably fired by the Government of Oceana itself just to keep people frightened."
