As the U.S. continues to prepare for war, this short essay shows that lies are frequently the precursor to war as demonstrated in Japan, Cambodia, Cuba, Chile, Vietnam, and Iraq in the last decade and present. These incidents show half a century of deceit and media failure because of a reliance upon government sources for information, little verification of stories before reporting them as predicates for aggressive action, and an acceptance of rationalizations that are merely excuses for a course of action that has already been planned.
