STRATEGERY


“Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine 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. 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 to 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.”

That is a great photoshop. It took me two passes by to see Captain Pretzeltwit in it, and three to realize who the original individual is. A picture without words is sometimes worth more....
I remember reading that quote for the first time a couple of years ago while trolling around on dailykos, and it gave me the chills then. It was one of my real beginnings in getting to the point of being able to decode neo-con speak.

It is a great job, but I can't take credit for it...nabbed it on the web...the quote is Goering, the fat slob was better suited for Himmler's job than running an Air Force.....

Ditto Kid's comment - the photoshop is excellent. Ah, Goebbels, his spirit lives on, and on and on. Doesn't it ever die?
