I found the article very though provoking and interesting.
The commonalities are very scary, though not I think not surprising.

I'v often thought of Perle, Wolfowitz and other neoconservatists as so far to the right and mixed with corporate America that they truly are like the Fascist of Germany and Italy.

diamond......

It was pretty predictable that your blinding worship of Dubya would prevent you from looking at this article rationally and objectively.

Did you actually READ this article in its entirety? It is about so much more than the war and the freeing of the Iraqis!

As verte said, it has all kinds of implications for every day life way beyond the current war. I don't even see what "straws" you think people are grasping at!

The only "premise" was to show the parallels between Europe in the 30s and the US today. There are differences yes, but also similarities that I think are unnerving...

I don't see this article as anti-US, but a thought provoking cautionary tale based on an observation of historical facts. If there's one thing it's NOT it's Poppycock. Just because this administration can do NO WRONG in your eyes, doesn't mean you have to be so PATRONIZING of everyone else!

No, diamond, you are the one avoiding the issue. Your posting of a picture that really has nothing to do with the topic of the article says a lot. Rather than address the real similarities the writer points out, you still hold on to visceral visuals. One picture can indeed say 1000 words, but in your case, it's 1000 words that are meaningless to the discussion here at hand.

It would require diamond to be multicultural. How dare we stand between him and his fuhrer.

Joking aside, I would comment more on this, but then I would be revealing too much of my potential thesis topic. If we're all so lucky, I'll get it published...lol.

AHA!!! So you hadn't read it.

I'm glad that you will later, and I look forward to the unbiased "eloequent" opinion.

A minimum of at least another year--the thesis is due in Spring 2004.

So if you disagree with something, its automatically labeled poppycock and propoganda and your only argument is to post a picture of GW?

At least give us your reasons why you think its rubbish. I can't wait to read your unbiased, eloquent response

I read the article. I do read some of the articles put on Common Dreams, and I find it way left of my political beliefs.

AS to this Article, maybe there are similarities. That said, I do not believe that the US occupation of Iraq to be a permanent thing. It does not = Germanies invasion of Austria.

That said, the security police and homeland information has bothered me from the start. I liked that the Patriot act was a five year deal. It now seems that they want to make it a permanent deal. I do not support this at all. I think there needs to be a congressional check on things. Making it permanent hurts the checks and balances built in.

Matt, you didn't actually believe that it was really only going to be a five year thing, did you?
