Sad Reminder!...on 9/11

Got this in my morning mail today forwarded by a friend...a sad reminder...

"... of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of
the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag
the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a
parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can
always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you
have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists
for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger..."

- Herman Goering, Nazi leader - April 18, 1946 - W.W.II Nuremberg Trials

Those who fail to learn the lessons that history teaches, are doomed to repeat them."
