"Where Are the Weapons of Mass Destruction?"

August 2004
U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings;Aug2004, Vol. 130 Issue 8, p20
Conference Proceeding
Private F. Possert's use of this term liberal reminds of a speech Joseph Goebbels held in the Reichstag more than half a century ago. He condemned socialists and liberals as Undeutsche—"un-Germans." Whenever United States President George W. Bush talks about "un-American" behavior, it sends a shiver down his spine and he sees black-and-white television coverage before his inner eye, showing a small guy from the Rhineland with a crippled foot who had set the Germans' hatred in flames. Maybe Private Possert should read some history books himself and not accuse people of eating covers of books instead of reading them.
