The Power Of Nightmares

Here's something that all should know about the radical right. They don't like liberty and they don't believe that individuality is a good thing for our society. Now many on the right may argue this. Unfortunately the longer they argue it instead of standing for what they REALLY believe in, the closer we get to the neocon goal.

..............The wisest course would have been for President Bush to use his nuclear weapons to slaughter Iraqis until they complied with his demands, or until they were all dead. Then there would be little risk or expense and no American army would be left exposed. But if he did this, his cowardly electorate would have instantly ended his term of office, if not his freedom or his life...... .....Caesar pacified Gaul by mass slaughter; he then used his successful army to crush all political opposition at home and establish himself as permanent ruler of ancient Rome. This brilliant action not only ended the personal threat to Caesar, but ended the civil chaos that was threatening anarchy in ancient Rome – thus marking the start of the ancient Roman Empire that gave peace and prosperity to the known world. If President Bush copied Julius Caesar by ordering his army to empty Iraq of Arabs and repopulate the country with Americans, he would achieve immediate results: popularity with his military; enrichment of America by converting an Arabian Iraq into an American Iraq (therefore turning it from a liability to an asset); and boost American prestiege while terrifying American enemies......... .......President Bush can fail in his duty to himself, his country, and his God, by becoming “ex-president” Bush or he can become “President-for-Life” Bush: the conqueror of Iraq, who brings sense to the Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Then who would be able to stop Bush from emulating Augustus Caesar and becoming ruler of the world? For only an America united under one ruler has the power to save humanity from the threat of a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear weapons.

There you have it.

I encourage you to use the link to read the whole story. Also, those in comments on Digbys page have provided some more research and interesting information on this guy and his associates. Check them out too.

When you have time for viewing here is an interesting documentary from the BBC that kind of puts it all in perspective. I have studied this and I know 75% of this to be true through my own research. Because of this I have reason to believe the rest of it is largely accurate. I highly reccomend it. It is great for filling in the blanks. There are three segments. They are each an hour. The first is the must see. The other two are good but I would choose the 3rd over the 2nd if your time is limited. See it, research it, believe it. Fear no more.

Segment One

Segment Two

Segment Three
