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.
