    I believe This is something people call propaganda or fear mongering
    Think it works something like this...first you create a problem threat ie; evil Muslims ,then the masses react in fear and say... protect us something must be done ,then you offer a solution ,which is more money, more power, more control , gven to the government and taken from people

    Tough read for you? There is a difference between propaganda and factual information.

    Propaganda: Lies vs. Facts

    Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.
