War fever is truly a bizarre aspect of human behavior. Power-lusting politicians know that all they have to do is say "war," and millions of citizens go into a zombie-like state where up is down, and pathetic, third-world countries with not even one bomb, are a threat to a country with five thousand of them.
The delusion continues: Why, Muslims are just NATURALLY IRRATIONAL! They WANT to be killed en masse! They're not like us rational Christians and Jews.
All 1.5 billion of them.
But the fact we have invaded and occupied their countries? Why, they should be GRATEFUL to us. Those hundred thousand of their neighbors and families? Too bad, those evil MUSLIMS brought it on themselves (even when they didn't).
