[Glorious War] Lead Up To War With Iran – NSA Scandal

Posted by Lex Fear on April 23, 2006

An excellent post over at NSA Scandal by Glenn Greenwald. It is well worth reading the whole post but here is an excerpt:

“What is starkly apparent from this reptition is that their awareness of history and knowledge of the world is sadly confined to one singular event, which is all they know and which, rather bizarrely, they have a need to live over and over and over again.

To pro-Bush war supporters, the world is forever stuck in the 1930s. Every leader we don’t like is Adolph Hitler, a crazed and irrational lunatic who wants to dominate the world. Every country opposed to our interests is Nazi Germany. From this it follows that every warmonger is the glorious reincarnation of the brave and resolute Winston Churchill. And one who opposes or even questions any proposed war becomes the lowly and cowardly appeaser, Neville Chamberlain. For any and every conflict that arises, the U.S. is in the identical position of France and England in 1937  faced with an aggressive and militaristic Nazi Germany, will we shrink from our grand fighting duties in appeasement and fear, or will we stand tall and strong and wage glorious war?”

Anyone who likes what they read should check out his whole blog or the other blog that he writes: Unclaimed Territory.
