Among the oldest tricks of a dictator is to create in the minds of the people that a certain country is an enemy to be feared. There have been many examples: Russia during the Cold War, North Korea, Cuba and other countries that have portrayed the United States as the enemy to be feared. The dictator is there to protect them from the evil enemy, so goes the line in those countries.

A prime example today is North Korea, which says it has launched a program to build and deliver a nuclear bomb to its sworn enemy, the United States. Through an effective propaganda machine, communist North Korea has vowed to take whatever actions are necessary to protect the people from the United States, which has imposed sanctions on North Korea.
