That is the question of this book chapter, which is a discussion of war propaganda as such, but with many parallels between the media conditions surrounding war propaganda in World War II and the 21st century media setting in which wars such as Iraq or Afghanistan have been launched. The article draws on classical realisms as a critical framework through which to assess different forms of war propaganda and their ethical and democratic implications).

From a classical realist/critical theory perspective, it argues that the idea of a ‘shared’ public-private responsibility for security matters, ultimately amounts to no responsibility – and no accountability)
