I am sorry.
I consider it to be a fact that the so called "hawks" and "new-right" are American Neo-Nazis. I am not hiding that.
Actually, although I may think that Mr. Bush is an irresponsible Cowboy, I am not including him in the "New-Right"
Even today, a videoclip of the US armed forces recruiting offices was shown of the Portuguese TV
. It was incredible. Everything there, the appeal to violence, to ultra-nationalism, is a copy of the messages the Nazis passed to young people in Germany in the 1930's.
It is disguised, of course, it looks better, of course, it is in technicolour. Of course, it uses all the latest techniques of any good advertising agency, of course, but the basic message is the same.
It is really not my problem. It is just what America is showing.
I have not invented that. The new-right exists.
America is invading nations without caring for the consequences, using feeble arguments, and changing the arguments for the invasion as things progress.
America is proudly showing it's strength to the world, basically saying DO
ELSE. (Of course in this case the argument - a very good one - is the liberation of Iraq)
I have seen that in Afghanistan
I have seen that in Panama
I have seen that in Chile
I have seen that in Somalia
I have seen that in Vietnam
I have seen that in Korea
I am seeing that on this very forum, where many arguments are countered by a simple "No it is not", "SADDAM is a dictator and we will win", "Where are the nay-sayers now that the WMD have been found"
Do you really want me to go on?
As the German foreign minister said in the face of Heirich Rumsfeld some days before the war started, "YOU MUST HAVE A CASE"
The Dictator is falling, Iraq may even have WMD's, but whatever happens, America insists in not having a case, going on with the Bullish behavior that is turning the country into the most hated nation in the world.
A part of America already understood that. Another part of America, supports the troops (whatever that may be) but still is not ready to start an exercise of introspection.
It's not really my problem.
I wish it was.
