“Naturally the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.

It works the same in any country.”

 

Hermann Goering, Nazi leader, April 18, 1946 excerpted from Nuremburg Diary by Gustave M. Gilbert

Interesting quote, although it doesn't apply here, at all.

 

After Hitler's appointment as Chancellor on 30 January 1933, Goering was made Prussian Minister of the Interior, Commander-in-Chief of the Prussian Police and Gestapo and Commissioner for Aviation. As the creator of the secret police, Goering, together with Himmler (q.v.) and Heydrich (q.v.), set up the early concentration camps for political opponents, showing formidable energy in terrorizing and crushing all resistance.

 

Under the pretext of a threatened communist coup, Prussia was 'cleansed' and hundreds of officers and thousands of ordinary policemen were purged, being replaced from the great reservoir of SA and SS men who took over the policing of Berlin. Goering exploited the Reichstag fire--which many suspected that he had engineered--to implement a series of emergency decrees that destroyed the last remnants of civil rights in Germany, to imprison communists and Social Democrats and ban the left- wing press. He directed operations during the Blood Purge, which eliminated his rival Ernst Rohm and other SA leaders on 30 June 1934.

 

On 1 March 1935 he was appointed Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force and, with Udet and Milch, was responsible for organizing the rapid build-up of the aircraft industry and training of pilots. In 1936 his powers were further extended by his appointment as Plenipotentiary for the implementation of the Four Year Plan, which gave him virtually dictatorial controls to direct the German economy.

 

How is this quote even relevant to the 70% of americans approving of war in iraq in the year 2003? Hermann's quote don't include what is described above which obviously is not happening now and never will in america, EVER! 70% of Americans are approving of this war in Iraq because it's the right thing to do, not because another Liberal/Socialist is quoting either some irrelevant long forgotten author or using a quote that has the same ideology of what he thinks has happened to 70% of the American people who don't believe in his outdated views. Yet in reality, Hermman's quote doesn't explain the actual facts of what happened in Germany in 1933. This my friend is a stretch, even for you!

 

What emergency decrees has congress declared in order to destroy the last remnants of civil rights? Where are all the political concentration camps? Who have they imprisoned? I don't see any of that. Although I'm beginning to see the rise of Anti-Semitism in this country ("coughJESSEMORANcough), which is being perpetrated by the Muslim world, (Dare I say in a "Hitleresque" way circa 1933?) and is now being swallowed whole by this country's "Enthusiastic Dissenters."

 

With the resources we have today in the year 2003, unlike the only two (radio, newspapers) they had 70 years ago in Germany (Obviously, the World Wide Web was not in existence then, along with that other thing called the Television, with either cable or Satellite) where if someone read something in the paper or heard it on the radio (Which were both controlled by the Nazi's) he pretty much thought it was the truth. But now that we have instant access to all sorts of media outlets around the world, it's ludicrous to even think that quote explains why 70% of the people approve of war in iraq.

 

Besides, he was a major druggie and right before he made that statement, he took a hit of the Brown Acid. And he was warned that it was bad. And not to long after that he O.D'd on a bad hit of cyanide.

clearly, jack, you missed the point, per usual.

 

in your rush to crack open a history book to copy and paste a brief biography of goering, you failed to understand the significance of the words as opposed to the actions. the 70% offered is the product of frenzied patriotism in the face of television coverage of cruise, tomohawk, and "mother-of-all bombs" currently razing baghdad. with war hawks having free reign in both the white house and network news stations, it is treasonous to speak out against the decisons of the president. it is ecactly the "recources" of today that is creating the spike in bush's approval rating. we are witnessing the weakness of a representative democracy; one man is dicating the direction of 290 million people.

And as per usual, in your attempt to constantly prove that 70% of the American People are brainwashed by what they see on t.v. or read in the paper (Because we all know the the White House controls all media outlets like the Nazi's did 70 years ago) because of what you "You Say" or because your constantly finding these quotes that have convinced you, is the only reason that 70% of the country are for the war!

 

Once again your exaggerations knows no bounds. Who said it was treasonous to speak out against the decisions of the President? Have you or any of the other charter members of the "Algonquin Table on the Left" been arrested yet? No, but I think you've suffered a fate worse than that, you've been heard but also ignored. You can use the example of the "Dixie Chicks" protests and boycott's as that of speaking out against the president or the U.S. but it would be wrong.

 

If a fan who does not believe in what Natalie Maines had to say has every right to not spend their money on any of their cd's (why they would buy them in the first place is beyond me?) now before you use that as one of your examples, if she really believed in what she said, she wouldn't care that her record sales were slipping right? How ironic that in her "First" attempt at an apology when she was beginning to feel the backlash, she said that she had been in europe for several weeks and got caught up in the "Frenzy" of anti American sentiment so that's why she said what she said. (If you haven't notice by now Eric, which I know you haven't... It "Frenzy" works both way's)

 

Then I'm sure when her record company got a hold of her and explained that her records sales were falling faster than the percentage of people in America who are against the war, she made a "Second" apology to her fans that she shouldn't have said what she said about Bush. Now I know your going to jump on the "See I told you it's treasonous to speak out against the President," but you would be wrong again. She was never arrested, but just as the "Frenzied Left" gets all bent when you criticize them, well her fans (she obviously doesn't know the majority of her fans are of the 76%'ers) took issue with that and started to "Enthusiastically Dissent" against the Dixie Chicks by hitting them where it hurts... cd sales and airplay on country music stations.

 

If she really believed in what she said instead of blaming it on getting caught up in the anti American sentiment, she should have never apologized "Twice!" But being the Evil imperialistic capitalist that she is, because she knew she would take a hit in the bank account, she Hypocritically apologized TWICE!

 

You characterize it as "Frenzied Patriotism" when actually (NEWS FLASH!

As I'm typing this here, right after you've called me from "Dissent Central" the CNN/Gallup Poll just said 76% now approve) you have it backwards, it's the "Frenzied Left/Liberal/Democrats" whose "Frenzied Rants and Protests" that our democracy is weakening and that ONE MAN is directing 290 million by himself is ridiculous!

 

And that is why you and your Comrades protests and absurd claims aren't listened to.

 

What you fail to realize is that because of all this tiresome "Liberalist Rhetoric" you have actually made those of the "Frenzied Patriotic/Brainwashed 76%'ers" sick and tired of all of your constant "Dissenting" and now they are beginning to show up more and more at your redundant protests and that is another reason for the "Spike" in the presidents approval rating.

 

Just because those of the "70%... let me say that again 76%" aren't out blocking traffic, advocating that students leave their classrooms or participate in a work stoppage doesn't mean your Comrades are right and we're wrong. But now because the 76%'ers are getting tired of seeing and hearing all of this, they are now going to do be a lot more vocal.

 

To your obvious dismay.

 

Call me when you get back and let me know if you got President Sheen's Autograph, and then you can help me get my fan club for your Comrades here up and running.

Tell me, does it bother any of those of you who so believed that Saddam was a terrible threat to the U.S. that the war is so one-sided? I'm overjoyed that American soldiers aren't dying in droves, but, where was the threat?

When I fought in Viet-Nam, the threat was real. There was an enemy who fought back. You are free to agree with me, but my assumption is that if there is no real resistance, there was no real threat.

It doesn't bother me at all. And I'm glad that our troops our not dying in droves either and that as far as we know now, there hasn't been reports of civilian loss of life in droves either.

 

Regarding the threat, that will be confirmed later once we enter baghdad and find all the biochemical weapons that we know are there regardless of what the protesters say.

 

But two things we already do know, their weapons were made with the help of France, and that the Iraqi armed forces were trained by France.

 

That's why they're surrendering without a fight. I knew France had to be good for something.

You posit the existence of these terrible weapons, yet it doesn't seem strange to you, in a military sense, that we haven't seen them used?

Iraq is almost completely overrun, the regime is fighting for its very existence, and they have yet to use the weapons of mass destruction which might be their only chance? Perhaps Saddam is too human to unleash biological and chemical terror. If so, is he so evil? If he isn't afraid, is it just possible that he doesn't have the weapons we think he does? Try, for once to think without the right-wing rhetoric. Iraq was largely armed by the U.S. and the Soviets. We helped them with weapons and cash during the Iraq-Iran War. Then, Saddam was our guy. The Marine Corps absolved him of the very crime with which we charge him in every administration speech.

Maybe they were covering up for him, but that, then, makes US a party to his evil. You can't have it both ways.

 

By the way, France has fought some terrible wars in its history. It knows the glory of victory and the agony of being occupied. It knows about the futility of hegemony. Maybe we should listen once, when those who have seen more of the vicissitudes of war than we have speak earnestly to us.

I think your question just might have been answered by the discovery of what just might be a Chemical plant 90 miles south of Baghdad. But then I'm sure you'll do the "Bill Clinton Two Step" and say "Well the deadly Chemicals they did find aren't really the worst possible ones that there can be, and besides he never used them against us, so the war is still unjustified" Sort of like old Bubba did when he was trying to define the "Specific meaning" of "Sexual Relations."

 

So here is a question for everyone: what do you do now, if what they found are actually the first of what I'm sure will be several Chemical Plants? Not to mention all of the other weapons that will show France, Germany, Russia and China helped them manufacture them?

 

Play the "Semantics" game? And say that there is a difference between weapons of "Mass Destruction" and weapons of the "Chemical Nature?" Because remember, those "Over-qualified" U.N. inspectors have been looking for years where the iraqi government has been telling them to look and until a week ago, they still haven't found anything. And remember Iraq is not to suppose to have them according to that great organization the U.N.of France, Germany, Russia and China.

 

Didn't Hussein promise the U.N. that he would provide documentation proving that he had destroyed all of his stores of anthrax and nerve gas? You know, the documentation he swore didn't exist, like it's anthrax and nerve gas.

 

But the funniest joke of all regarding the U.N.'s job to "Oversee the World's Security," is that the commission on human rights has just opened its session under the chairmanship of.... DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!

And as you said in your last e mail eric (Quote: amid all the opinions and "facts" there is one thing we can all agree on: a dead marine is a dead marine),

 

Interesting, but thanks to those "Dead Marines" who died serving and protecting their (our) country long before either of us were born in order so that we (whether you asked them to or not) may enjoy the life we do and live in this great country of ours, instead of the kind of country that was described in the article i pasted above.

 

But now that these "Facts" are beginning to be proven by what we're starting to find over there, it's killing you. It amazes me how you can say "Dead marine" with such "Contempt"

 

Knowing you all these years, to be a man of great character and thoughtfulness, I'm just blown away that you can't even give these men and women the respect and dignity they deserve by giving their lives for OUR Country, just because now, what you feared the most is beginning to happen. Because now all the reasons we said we should go into iraq, are beginning to be backed up with proof.

Eric Burgess! (The camera pans to Michael Moore on his feet Applauding, he is so proud of you)

 

Eric's talent in the art of splitting hairs (e.g. The Lack of "Unbiased" inspectors) without admitting he is wrong, is without peer. The chemicals that will be found (probably the same ones that Saddam used on his own people killing thousands of them) are now going to overlooked because the troops that found them did not have an "Unbiased" U.N.(The Laugh track Swells to a "Spinal Tap 11") Inspector there to legitimize the findings (And I'm sure that if they were there too you would find "Another" excuse).

And we all know how "Unbiased" the U.N. is towards the United States!

 

Congrats Eric!

 

Can you honestly say Bush is enjoying this?, that he would be smirking while as you zealously try to convince yourself that he is "The smirking man who sent them to their death?" You're as delusional as Michael Moore is when he said he wasn't booed, and that he spoke for the majority of the American people (Let's see, the last time I checked 24% is not the "Majority" when compare to 76% are for it), I hear another "Spinal Tap 11" coming...

It's pretty funny that Michael Moore was complaining about Bush, when he helped into office by voting for "Ralph Nader," Thanks Mike!... 11!

 

How noble it is to continue to callously talk about the death of our troops and say that our President is actually enjoying sending these troops to their death. Just as noble as that sign one "Dissenter" was carrying up in San Francisco that said "We support our own troops, when they shoot their Officers" How lovely. How "Left/Socialistic/Democratic" of them.

 

How noble, to continue to look for way's to discredit everything you've been howling about as to why we shouldn't go into this war, just because it's not turning out like you hoped, and all your zealous Left rhetoric is being debunked.

Dearest Dick,

 

I haven't ignored anything, I must honestly say I don't know what this "Marine Corps Report" is?. I've never heard of it, would you mind telling me where I can read this report? I don't want you to say I've ignored it when I didn't even know what it was. My bad.

 

As far as the Kurds not being Saddam's own people (There is this familiar theme of being a Saddam Sympathizer here with you... Good for You!) Since you've given the reason why Saddam gassed (without actually admitting it, you are Slick Dick!) people other than his own, these so called terrorists against this "Humane Man" who according to you might be too "Human" to actually do something like that, well my money is on that their just retaliating against that crazy Saddam, the humanitarian. Why don't you show me some proof of that? And let me decide for myself.

 

Once again I'll believe what the world already knows of this "Humane Human" that what he has done, has been proven.

 

Did you take the 3 minutes to read that account from that man who has experienced Saddam's Humanness first hand?

If not, here is the link again.

http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2003/03/22/1047749993344.html

 

As you said "Maybe we should listen once, when those who have seen more of the vicissitudes of war (or Saddam's tyranny) than we have speak earnestly to us."

 

So if by following the logic from that quote of yours yesterday, that means we should believe this mans account of Saddams treachery towards his own people because he actually experienced it, right? instead of just some guy who wasn't actually there experiencing it with him. I know my 12th grade edjumakzun limits me and to some, disqualifies anything I have to say, but that is what you meant right?

 

And like I said, I graduated the 12th grade so in the future when you want to look down your condescending nose at me, at least give me my due and say my rants are "Senoric."

The report is U.S. Marine Corps Historical Document FMFRP 3-203, Appendix B, which deals with the Gas attack on Halabja in 1988. I did send an email to this effect last week. The Marine Corps concluded that the attack came from the Irani forces operating on the border with Iraq. I have never sympathized with Saddam Hussein. He is a dictator and I believe all dictators do evil things in the course of protecting their power, even the ones the U.S. has supported throughout its recent history. What I don't like is the constant repeating of a refrain that is at least tainted.

 

This amounts to simple demonization, which is always a tactic of those who want to attack another, from nations to divorcing spouses. I have no doubt that there are those who have suffered grievously from Saddam's sins, as there are who suffered from those of Trujillo, Somoza, Pinochet, Batista, Marcos, Rhee, Chiang, and any number of other dictators whose depredations have been documented over the years, and who have been supported by the U.S..

Middle East - AP U.S. Finds Nothing at Iraq Chemical Plant Tue Mar 25, 4:53 PM ET By MATT KELLEY, Associated Press Writer

 

WASHINGTON - U.S. military investigators have found no evidence that chemical weapons have been made in recent years at a suspect chemical plant secured by U.S. troops in southern Iraq ( news -web sites ), a senior defense official said Tuesday.

Before the war, American intelligence agencies had identified the site in the town of Najaf as a possible part of Iraq's chemical weapons program, the official said, speaking on condition he not be identified.

Indications then were that the plant had not been used for banned weapons activities since 1998, the official said.

It's called "War" and unfortunately there are casualties. This isn't a Rambo movie where 40 guys are chasing him and he kills them all without being hit once.

But just by you asking me in the manner you did, my prediction of you hoping that we would have a substantial amount of casualties so that you could feel so proud of yourself has come true.

 

And although there wasn't anything found there, they do know that some where manufactured there (you can take the word of your source who doesn't want to be identified, I won't). And they seem to be finding a lot of chemical suits and Atropine which is to be used in case of a chemical attack. So give it time, they're still about 90 miles outside Baghdad and once they get through the troops that would keep watch on the people and where Saddam's army of murderers. They'll find these places. Why would they have these chemical suits and Atropine in the first place?

 

These so called soldiers dress in civilian clothing, hide in hospitals and schools and act like their surrendering and then ambush our troops and mechanics and then execute them and then gloat about it on tv (on par with your gloating about these deaths, and you are gloating), who will fight to the death because they know that if they lose they don't have anywhere to go because then their in the hands of the people who they've tortured and payback's a bitch and they know it.

 

So don't start bitching when we start doing the same thing now that our troops have seen or been told of what happened to the POW's, they are beyond pissed and in order to reduce the loss of life on our side, they'll have to start shooting through the human shields whether it be women or children, this is what they need to do to protect their own lives.

 

So sleep well knowing how good it makes you feel to know those marines lost their lives serving their country and the people that live in it... even you.
