I wasn't being sarcastic. There is big money to be made by keeping people scared. Too many examples to list but the most obvious one is a trillion dollars wasted in Iraq. No way the US ever gets involved in that mess without the fearmongering.
But where is the fearmongering propaganda coming from? Who wants to go to war, and why?
War is very profitable for oil companies and defense contractors. For soldiers and the regular taxpayer it's a miserable drain because the costs rarely justify the expense. In the case of Iraq, the cost benefit is woefully, absurdly out of balance. Unless you're a defense contractor, in which case: $$$$$$$$
