"Why, of course, the PEOPLE Don't Want War".......

Goering shrugged. "Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England, nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the 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."

At that point Gilbert, who interviewed him, commented: "There is one difference. In a democracy the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars."

"Oh, that is all well and good, but, 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 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"

The Worst President in American History

Click here for a current story in Germany's most influential newsmagazine, about our absolutely bungled, and now irrevocably lost battle against terrorism. The idiodic invasion of Iraq has created a NEW ARMY of terrorists.

Our "National Intelligence Estimate" hints that we can never leave Iraq: The longer we fight, the more Iraquis will join the fight, and there are a lot more of them than of our thinly spread army. During our invasion, we failed to secure several square miles of Iraqi ammo dumps, which have now been dispersed among the insurgents.


Historically Underutilized Leadership

Although opposed to the Vietnam War, and a friend of his family reserved a spot for him in the National Guard, Al Gore enlisted in the US Army, and arrived in Vietnam on January 2, 1971, to serve as a field reporter, first with the 20th Engineer Brigade, then with the Army Engineer Command.

Gore opposed to war? War IS Hell, though it took about eight months before I had to kill my first children. At Trung Lap, at the edge of the "Iron Triangle", we were being mortared every night, until, late one evening, a counter-mortar unit from an American division gave me the the exact coordinates of the enemy mortars. When we returned fire, civilians died, including children.


Please Don't Kill ME!!

For destoying OUR ARMY, once the finest in the world, and in whose ranks I served with pride as an armor officer, first as tank unit commander, then as Intelligence Operations Officer of our 4th US Armored Division in Germany, then in Vietnam as Civil Affairs Officer of the 1/10 Cav Squadron, as Advisory Team Leader of the 748 Regional Forces Company (Montagnard), and finally as Advisor to the ARVN battalion at Trung Lap, at the edge of the "Iron Triangle".

Even with our massive resources, it will take years for a (HOPEFULLY) more COMPETENT president to rebuild the defenses of our great nation. No, we won't kill you, but your name will forever be read with disdain in the history books of future generations.
