- "Dictatorships start wars because they need external
enemies to exert internal control over their own people." --Richard
- Americans are the new Nazis.
- There, that's earned me a lot of enemies very quickly,
- "How dare you," comes the riposte from the
neo-cons in the administration and the right wing think tanks like JINSA
and the PNAC, as well as the "Fox news compliant" brigade whose
heads are still stuck up their backsides enjoying the televised view. "America
is a democracy, a free country run by a democratically elected government.
It is the land of the free, the home of the brave and the protector of
the free world," I hear them chorus.
- To that I say: BULLSHIT.
- To say America is a democracy these days is just stretching
things too far. Consider:- Bush was not elected by the majority of people
in the USA. Admittedly the turnout was low (you do, after all, get the
government you deserve if you don't excercise your franchise) but George
W didn't get a mandate. To do that more than fifty percent of the voters
have to vote for you, and that didn't happen. In fact Georgie boy lost.
However, good old George made sure that, mandate or not, win or not, with
a little help from friends and family in Florida he could win it by cheating.
Let's not mince words, George W Bush STOLE the presidency of the United
States. He is not the democratically elected leader of America. It also
appears that some unelected officials in the Bush administration may have
acquired more power than the president himself. Perle, Wolfowitz, Feith,
Bolton, Abrams, Rumsfeld all share the same right wing neo-conservative
views held by organisations such as the Project for a New American Century,
the Zionizt Organisation of America and the the Jewish Institute for National
Security Affairs. As members of these organisations, it could be said that
this unelected cabal of neo-cons in the White House and the Pentagon have
interests other than America at heart. This is not only undemocratic, it
- So, we now see that America is governed by a president
who was not democratically elected, supported by an unelected cabal of
people with very extreme and in some cases, very un-American views. This
cannot, therefore, classify America as a democratic country. A country
that is governed by a non elected power is, as we have seen and heard these
last few months concerning Iraq, Iran and North Korea, classed as a "dictatorship".
Dictatorships are fascist by nature. Fascism is described as "right
wing dictatorship". Just put the word fascism into your computer,
highlight it and hit "Tools" followed by "Thesaurus."
See what I mean?
- Now let's take a quick look at Germany in the 1930's
and 40's as the Nazis reared their ugly heads. Here was a country that
was finacially crippled with a massive budget deficit owing billions of
dollars to the rest of the world. Just like the USA.
- In the 1930's Germany was a country where the burning
of the Reichstag, engineered by Hitler and his henchmen, was used to create
external enemies and to exert internal control over the German people.
Hitler then used the media to lie, frighten and decieve the population,
allowing a bunch of vicious, extreme, right wing megalomaniacs to gain
power. Just like the USA.
- In the 1930's Hitler was surrounded by a group of unelected
officials whose sole objective was to take control of Germany for their
own ends and with the use of their military might, take control of the
assets and prosperity of other, weaker countries. Just like the USA.
- In 1939 Hitler embarked on a series of pre-emptive attacks
on sovereign nations in the name of "freeing the people" of that
country. Just like the USA.
- In 1940 the German hierarchy started building special
"camps" or detention centres in which to incarcerate and eventually
execute those people considered to be "against" their regime.
Just like the USA.
- As Germany invaded the countries surrounding them during
World War II, they found that far from having conquered the country and
"liberated" the people, the people of that country formed nationalist
"resistance" groups and used guerilla warfare to kill, harrass
and slowly demoralise the occupying army. Just like the USA.
- "History is little more than the register of crimes,
follies, and misfortunes of mankind" wrote Edward Gibbon, the British
historian in The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. History should teach
us a great many things, but unfortunately the majority of Americans know
very little about history, or for that matter, the rest of the world. Don't
believe me? Ask an American where Admiral Lord Nelson, one of the worlds
greatest naval commanders, died or what nationality Alexander the Great
was? Better still, ask an American to point to pretty much any foreign
country on a map. Try North Korea.
- If you know nothing of history, you cannot learn the
lessons history teaches. You continue to make the same mistakes. Hitler's
mistake was to wage war on too many fronts at once and underestimate the
ferocity of the guerilla wars being fought against him by resistance groups
all over Europe. Eventually it was Russia, or to be more precise, the Russian
winter and Hitler's hubris, that proved to much for the disillusioned German
troops, sick and tired of fighting and dying for a regime that they belatedly
realised was illegitimate.
- Hitler, in the last desperate act of a cowardly tyrant,
committed suicide. Germany, defeated and destroyed, had lost everything.
Those who had been instrumental in Germany's war and propoganda machine
where tried and executed. Eventually Germany once agaain became a democracy,
but it had taken the deaths of many millions of people to restore that
- Despite Germany's huge arsenal of weapons, it had lost
the war because those running Germany were not the democratic leaders of
a democratic country, but were fascist, right wing neo-conservatives, Nazis,
who propogated an illegal war through lies and deception and stirred up
the anger of all decent thinking people on the planet with their evil deeds.
- Just like America.

- Dear Ian,
- Good article re USA = Forth Reich...
- I am glad that you have made the comparison - just want
to let you know that many in Australia, the UK, Canada, Europe, Russia,
Middle East, Indian Sub-Continent, China etc etc have made this comparison
ever since 9/11 - possibly our closer historical involvement with earlier
clone insanities made us instantly aware of the nature of the news spin
- more likely we have more media that is not controlled by the Federal
Reserve ruling junta or have been less brain washed over recent years ???
- To many of us a fascist USA is a very real proposition
that leaves a tight feeling in the gut as we see the land of that "great
democratic experiment" - as Peter Ustinov (highly revered English
actor & film director of pre-revolutionary Russian origin) once called
it (= the USA) - that gave freedom to so many oppressed peoples - thus
the statue of liberty - turn into the greatest threat to world peace and
personal freedom that this increasingly little planet has ever known .......................
- Hence the new buzzword POX AMERICANA - which does not
mean "attack the USA with bio-weapons" - as a CIA US "spook"
at one of our West Australian Iraq anti-war demos thought when he engaged
me in conversation-interrogation over my placard wording whilst his assistant
took my photo.
- I tried to educate him - ie. the word POX came from the
phrase "Pox On It" - which had it's recorded origins with the
greatest writer EVER in the English language = William Shakespeare - and
was a play on the Roman PAX ROMA i.e. PAX AMERICANA = POX AMERICANA ......................
but these guys do not speak English - rather some bastardised gobbledegook
that I like to call "Neo-Texan" - it is obvious that their knowledge
of history is limited to the post Vietnam era. Terrifyingly thick ape men
and/or human bodies occupied by recently arrived alien life forms ??? !!!!!!
- Today just the act of demonstrating against the US actions
in our own sovereign nation guarantees US Intel attention. This arrogance-cheek-belligerence
will lead to your nations rapid demise - it is axiomatic.
- The WHY = oil = the right to demand we all accept the
Federal Reserve promissory greenback note as payment = planetary power
& suppression = one "man's" will over ours. If we all collectively
say NO this latest would be Genghis Kahn will be exposed as the usual "Paper
- Good luck in the forthcoming planetary rebellion and
wars of national independence !!!
