"Naturally the common people don't want war....
All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.
It works the same in any country."
--Reichsmarschall Herman Goering--

ACCORDING TO SEYMOUR HERSH, BUSH PLANS TO USE NUCLEAR WEAPONS ON IRAN
As many of us know, Mr. Hersh is a renowned investigative reporter with long-term relationships with officials at the Pentagon. His article is sobering and very frightening. LS
From The New Yorker Magazine courtesy of TRUTHOUT.ORG
There is a growing conviction among members of the United States military, and in the international community, that President Bush's ultimate goal in the nuclear confrontation with Iran is regime change. Iran's President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has challenged the reality of the Holocaust and said that Israel must be "wiped off the map." Bush and others in the White House view him as a potential Adolf Hitler, a former senior intelligence official said. "That's the name they're using. They say, 'Will Iran get a strategic weapon and threaten another world war?' "
A government consultant with close ties to the civilian leadership in the Pentagon said that Bush was "absolutely convinced that Iran is going to get the bomb" if it is not stopped. He said that the President believes that he must do "what no Democrat or Republican, if elected in the future, would have the courage to do," and "that saving Iran is going to be his legacy."
One former defense official, who still deals with sensitive issues for the Bush Administration, told me that the military planning was premised on a belief that "a sustained bombing campaign in Iran will humiliate the religious leadership and lead the public to rise up and overthrow the government." He added, "I was shocked when I heard it, and asked myself, 'What are they smoking?' "
