We interrupt all this lighthearted fun, ‘cuz I can’t keep my mouth shut about this any longer.
“Despite threats from England and France, Hitler continued his preparations for the invasion of Poland. By April 3, 1939, he instructed his generals to set the date for the Polish invasion for September 1. Once again, Hitler targeted a struggling democracy as his next victim. ”
– Invasion of Poland –
Replace “Poland” with “Iraq”…
Replace “England and France” with “Saudi Arabia and Egypt”…
Do you see any parallels with what’s going on today?
Why, that would make Hitler…. ?
Lee put out some excellent links today, particularly Michael Moore’s list of Democrats who voted in the recent resolution to invade Iraq. He suggests voting their sorry asses out. (Ted Kennedy voted “No”. Hmmmm… I may learn to respect this man one day.)

What ever happened to “Of the people. By the people. For the people.…?”
kd answers that when she linked to the EFF Co-Founder’s rant:

Perhaps I would feel better about this invasion if our beloved Fuhr… uhm President would share with us (aka “The People”) why Iraq poses such a threat to us, eleven years after we kicked their asses all up and down the Persian Gulf????
“If I am to build unity among the people, I must first find a new front, a common enemy so that everyone knows: We must be united, because this enemy is the enemy of us all. If we are not united, the entire German people will sink into the abyss.”
– Adolf Hitler’s Speech at the 1927 Nuremberg Rally –
Now Muslims are “the common enemy”, just as the Jews were for Nazi Germany.
Fortunately, we haven’t reached the point of throwing people in camps. Oh.
Oh, well… not to worry. If we get out of hand we can be tried for War Crimes, right? Oopsie.
Scary shit, ain’t it?
Oh… there will be more about this….. I just need to catch my breath.
