The content, timing and tone of mainstream news media stories on Iran are already priming us for war, and easing us into the mindset that military
action against the Islamic state is unavoidable. The precursors are there, and you don't even need to look hard. This latest news about Iran's
enrichment of uranium, already a recurring theme in this Hollywood-esque storyline, is worth keeping an eye on. Even a basic familiarity with the
media's performance in the months preceding the Iraq war is enough to realise that arousing a dread of WMDs is the key to winning popular support for
action against Iran. Keep an eye on the International Atomic Energy Agency's involvement in this matter, as it is dutybound to involve itself in
Iran's procurement of enriched uranium, whether for military or civilian purposes.
Watch out for any discrediting or pooh-pooing of the IAEA's involvement - we will be told that their inspectors are being "thwarted" and that Iran
is hiding something. This will be the "final straw" before military intervention, most likely in the form of precision airstrikes against Iran's
nuclear facilities, likely coupled with the objective of regime change.
