One of those quotes Nov. 16th, 2003 12:00 pm
Currently watching The History Channel; it just came up with the following quote as a trailer; the images rotate through various warlike world leaders, ending on GWB:

"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 exposing the country to greater danger."

Recorded here and now so's I don't lose it again.

That sounds very similar to something Goering said. Are you sure it was the Shrub?

Probably my fault for the previous unreadability of links in my journal - should be more visible now.
