  •  All the right questions (0+ / 0-)

    Well, its after 1 am here in the Midwest, so I'm getting a tad tired, and extremely depressed.  I know I'm going to have another nightmare when I go to sleep of the Bush Nazis coming to get me and take me off to some foreign prison to torture me.

    You asked all the right questions.  Too bad we don't know the answers.  One thing I was thinking about some time ago, was that in Nazi Germany the nightmare did not end because the citizens of Germany rose up and revolted.  No, once the Nazis got absolute power, the German people, like the American people now, were too afraid to do anything.  One person cannot stand up to an SS unit then, just as all those exhorting us to "stay and fight" will not be able to stand up to the Black Hawk helicopters and riot police with tazers and vicious dogs and advance automatic weapons if they try to fight.

    The only way the nightmare was ended there was when a superior military power finally got involved and forcibly evicted the tyrants.  But, sadly this was not done until millions of Jews were gassed, and millions of innocents were killed in the combat.  And hundreds of thousands of American boys died.

    How sad it is that the nation which ridded the world of Hitler and Hirohito just a couple generations ago- (my parents generation), is now itself descending into a fascist nightmare.

    Hitler had his Jewish boogeymen.  Bush has his Arab terrorist boogeyman.  Hitler had absolutely no logical reason to target the Jews, while America does face a genuine threat from radical Islamic terrorism.  Its just that Bush has hijacked 9-11 and what should have been an intelligent anti-terror campaign and used it to promote his fascist neo-con agenda, with plot lines further influenced by the religious right and the "Rapturites."

    What country will rescue America now?
