It's Working for Bush...

Why of course the people don't want war, that
is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of
the country who determine the policy and it is always
a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it
is a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, 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
peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the
country to danger. It works the same in any country."

-Hermann Goering, Nazi officer,
during his Nuremberg war crimes trial
