"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 way in any country."

- Goring, super-Nazi


Can't be repeated enough.

2. Can't tell you how many times I was berated as unpatriotic for marching against the Iraq war...

I still say if Hillary was "fooled" into voting for it, then her much vaunted intelligence is called into question. I knew better, so did Bernie, and millions of people across the globe.

7. If she was fooled she is a

 

blithering idiot. But it was in fact the most craven, spineless, truckling sort of cowardice and shameless ass-covering. And anyone with an ounce of brains knows it.

3. And on Iran and Afghanistan, let us hear from the man that wrote the book on war.

 

'In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy's country whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good.'

'There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare.'

'The art of war is of vital importance to the state. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected.'

'Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.'

Sun Tz

10. China is smart they let problems come to them, where we go out and find problems in the world.

 

And some times start them. Notice too they didn't waste untold trillions on nuclear weapons either, just a few hundred because that will be enough.
