Ever wonder why the U.S. and other countries are determined to keep fighting wars against imaginary enemies? Ask George Zimmerman. Or Jared Loughner. They are two of the “horsemen” who ride their trusty steeds (F.E.A.R.* for Zimmerman; paranoia for Loughner) into any and all situations of perceived threat.

But Loughner and Zimmerman are men, human manifestations of the desire to unleash War, Conquest, Famine**, and Death – the official Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Will the world ride these four into war against Iran – another terrorist “threat” designed to exploit our human tendency toward experiencing F.E.A.R. and paranoia?

Already several nations are amassing the “evidence” – faked or mis-captioned photos, assertions from ginned-up “experts” – they need to justify the decision to bomb Iran to rubble.

* F.E.A.R.: False Evidence Appearing Real.

** Who knew the Famine they would unleash be would be a dearth of oil?
