The Beginning of the end...

 At the invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939,
based on fraudulently manufactured acts of Polish
aggression against Germany, Admiral Canaris [see link
below] is said to have blanched and pronounced:
"This is the end." More properly he might have
reached this rightful conclusion less instantaneously,
and have said: "This is the beginning of the end,"
as bankrupter G.W.Bush's equally criminal invasion of Iraq, based as it was on even less convincing manufactured evidence, will mark the beginning of the of U.S. hegemony.

The Bush Presidency, which started with the bankruptcy
of one of his major supporters, the Enron Company,
ended, for all intents and purposes, with the bankruptcy of the U.S. IN 2008, papered over with trillions of dollars from the Fed to the US Banking Industry. No prosecution by the once head of the Harvard Law Review!

Compared to the dissension and the conspiracies within
the conservative elements of the German military under Hitler the dissent within the American military has been paltry.

I suspect that those interested in compounding the Iraq invasion with an attack on Iran, will have their way, with unforeseeable consequences, none of the pleasant.

The Gleiwitz incident was a staged attack by Nazi forces posing as Poles on 31 August 1939, against the German radio station Sender Gleiwitz in GleiwitzUpper Silesia, Germany (since 1945: Gliwice, Poland) on the eve of World War II in Europe.
This provocation was the best-known of several actions in Operation Himmler, a series of unconventional operations undertaken by the SSin order to serve specific propaganda goals of Nazi Germany at the outbreak of the war. It was intended to create the appearance of Polish aggression against Germany in order to justify the subsequent invasion of Poland.

Events at Gleiwitz

Much of what is known about the Gleiwitz incident comes from the sworn affidavit of Alfred Naujocks at theNuremberg Trials. In his testimony, he states that he organized the incident under orders from Reinhard Heydrichand Heinrich Müller, the chief of the Gestapo.[1]
On the night of 31 August 1939, a small group of German operatives, dressed in Polish uniforms and led by Naujocks,[2] seized the Gleiwitz station and broadcast a short anti-German message in Polish (sources vary on the content of the message). The Germans' goal was to make the attack and the broadcast look like the work of anti-German Polish saboteurs.[2][3]
To make the attack seem more convincing, the Germans brought in Franciszek Honiok, a German Silesian known for sympathizing with the Poles, who had been arrested the previous day by the Gestapo. Honiok was dressed to look like a saboteur; then killed by lethal injection, given gunshot wounds, and left dead at the scene, so that he appeared to have been killed while attacking the station. His corpse was subsequently presented as proof of the attack to the police and press.[4]
In addition to Honiok, several other prisoners from the Dachau concentration camp[2] were kept available for this purpose.[3] The Germans referred to them by the code phrase "Konserve" ("canned goods"). For this reason, some sources incorrectly refer to the incident as "Operation Canned Goods."[5]
