Atrios Tires of the Pro-War Hypocrisy Atrios writes a suberb essay on how the violence is getting worse in Iraq and the hypocrisy the the pro-war people. He targets warbloggers, Paula Zahn, Andrew Sullivan, Ahmed Chalabi, Jim Hoagland and liberal hawks. It's aided and abetted by the "liberal hawks" who for the most part seemed to just want to prove they have bigger testicles than the rest of us. But, why the hell should anyone listen to them? They were wrong, and I don't really care about reading their tortured essays of self-evaluation. I say it didn't matter whether or not Saddam Hussein had WMD. The Bush administration don't need a reason 9in their collective minds.)

Weapons of Mass Destruction Related Program Activities Song The scary thing is sounds like what passes for a country music hit these days. When Johnny Cash couldn't get radio play for his last album then something is wrong.
American domestic propaganda during World War II. Fascinating pamphlets including "Do You Want Your Wife to Work After the War?" and "Can the Germans Be Re-educated?" As the site says: "The American Historical Association produced the G.I. Roundtable Series to help win World War II. Or so they were led to believe. In fact the U.S. Army sought the pamphlets as part of a larger effort to prepare for the transition to the postwar world, and represent a novel effort at social control. "
