For those that haven't seen them, there's a truly inspired series of Photoshopped WWII propaganda posters doing the rounds - full resolution copies available in the slideshow (opens new window).

"Only traitors speak out against war"

I have a very pertinent quote concerning the above which you may find elicits a bleak laugh. it was forwarded to me by an American friend of mine concerning his despair over the gung ho attitude of his countrymen - let along the bought and paid for govt - as regards the looming Iraqathon:-

A line from a famous political theorist which seems to describe the current American
political situation fairly well in my opinon:

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders
of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple
matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, 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 tell them they are being
attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and for
exposing the country to greater danger."

-- Herman Goering, at the Nuremberg trials

Feel free to pass it on...

Re: "Only traitors speak out against war"

That's a good quote. I think that I shall pinch it, if you don't mind...
