Why the “NAZI” Analogy Is on the Rise

Posted by alanmirs on September 2, 2006


Thus the administration truly
is committed to staying th The Bush administration has launched its
latest PR offensive
to boost support for the increasingly
unpopular war in Iraq
e course, at least metaphorically. In his March 2003
speech giving Saddam Hussein 48 hours to leave Iraq, the President said that “In the 20th century, some chose to appease
murderous dictators, whose threats were allowed to grow into genocide and
global war. In this century, when evil men plot chemical, biological and
nuclear terror, a policy of appeasement could bring destruction of a kind never
before seen on this earth.” During the 2004 campaign, Bush and Vice
President Cheney frequently invoked appeasement as well, saying that, as the
President put it, “America
is not to blame for terrorist hatred, and no retreat by America would
appease them.” And now, with support for withdrawal from Iraq growing, the Administration is suggesting
that withdrawal would constitute appeasement of the terrorists — part of its long-term effort to link Iraq with Al Qaeda and the Sept. 11
attacks.
