Remember this photo of GW Bush trying hard to convince us of the need for war while his face screams, LIE! I knew it was a lie; so did my wife and almost all of our friends. Others apparently weren’t astute enough to pick up the lying face. Or, two other reasons come to mind. One, they were too open, like sponges, to propaganda and nationalistic fervor. Two, they needed revenge for 9-11. These two forces have historically been used by incompetent but cunning leaders of nations to boost their image. We fell for it like lemmings over the cliff.
