logical figure of that cult of his devotees known as the cur-rent Bush Administration’s “Chicken-hawks.” It is theseChicken-hawks who, in Donald Rumsfeld’s Hitler-and-the-generals routines, have been the controlling, lackey-like fig-ures of President Bush’s post-2001 drive toward imperial,nuclear-weapons-wielding world war.
The shocking lessons of the first week of the new Iraqwar’s battlefields forced many to look back to the sum-totalof relevant recent weeks’ developments in and out of theUNO Security Council. Increasing numbers are being forcedto recognize that President Bush’s maddened lurch into anew Iraq war, was induced and intended by the President’scurrent Chicken-hawk controllers, as a trigger for anenraged utopian’s Hitler-like, chain-reaction-like plunge intowhat, unless stopped, will be spread, more or less rapidly, asa new world war. On that account, the French ForeignMinister Dominique de Villepin’s UNO Security Councilwarning against Bush’s proposed war, must be endorsed forfact, by all reasonable governments around the world, asmany among them have either stated or clearly implied. Of that, I say, as I have said in various forms and locationsbefore this:
That new world war, implicit in President Bush’scurrent Middle East policies, unless stopped soon, will have anoutcome comparable, on a global scale, to something worsethan what Europe suffered during the 137 years preceding theTreaty of Westphalia.
To begin to understand how President George W. Bush,Jr. came to this presently tragic state of his government,look back to January 2001, shortly before his dubiously con-trived inauguration.Just prior to the January 2001 inauguration of that cur-rent U.S. President, I delivered, from Washington, D.C.,what must now seem to many as a prophetic public addressto an international audience. In that address, I warned thatthe inauguration of that Presidency coincided with theU.S.A.’s previous entry into the terminal phase of the col-lapse of the world’s current monetary-financial system. Iwarned that audience, then, that Bush’s inau-guration, under today’s 1928-33-like condi-tions of terminal monetary-financial crisis,coincided with the likelihood that powerfulinsider forces behind the scenes wouldarrange a thus-threatened, early outbreak of an incident paralleling the Feb. 27, 1933burning of the German Reichstag.That Reichstag burning which I referencedin that address, was the incident which wasused by the Nazi government to establish theHitler dictatorship. The Reichstag event thusprecluded the alternative: that the March inau-guration of President Franklin Rooseveltwould mean that the similar recovery pro-grams of Roosevelt and Germany’s Dr.Wilhelm Lautenbach might be adopted byGermany instead of Hjalmar Schacht’s. Thus,by late Summer 1934, some form of WorldWar II had become inevitable, under a worldgoverned by the European leaderships of thattime.That new “Reichstag Fire” of which Iwarned in that January 2001 address, actually came, lessthan nine months later, on Sept. 11, 2001. Like Hitler’sReichstag fire of 1933, the Sept. 11, 2001 attack was exploit-ed by Vice-President Dick Cheney and such followers of theNazi-like Professor Leo Strauss as Attorney-General JohnAshcroft, to unleash an attempted step-wise, fascist takeoverof the U.S.A. from within.
That incident of Sept. 11, 2001was then used to unleash a campaign of intended worldwidewarfare, warfare modelled on Athens’ tragic folly of thePeloponnesian war, and on such Classically fascist prece-dents as those of the Roman Caesars, the EmperorNapoleon Bonaparte, and Adolf Hitler. Thus, the ideology of that thieving, imperial outlook of Cheney and his fascistChicken-hawks, now combines the nuclear “preventive war”dogmas of Bertrand Russell with the imported Nietzscheanmode of fascist ideology of Germany’s Carl Schmitt, MartinHeidegger, and Leo Strauss.More recently, George W. Bush, a U.S. President of stark-ly limited intellectual capability, has reacted in a fit of rageto the combined effect of both his desperation over a U.S.economic situation far beyond his capacity for rational deci-sion-making, and his anticipation of a then immediatelyimminent political defeat of his war policy in the UNSecurity Council. That wildly irrational outburst of rage,orchestrated by “Svengali” Cheney, has triggered “Trilby”Bush’s declaring a needless, lawless, and reckless waragainst Iraq, a war in violation of the relevant internationalcode of law. Worse, this is a war for which the policies of arm-chair warlords Cheney and Rumsfeld had left existingU.S. forces both poorly deployed, and severely under-equipped for the mission assigned to them. Rumsfeld’s play-ing “Hitler and the generals” in the Defense Department,produced the result, that within the lapse of a week of thatwar, signs of a new “Vietnam War” syndrome could nolonger be hidden.The President’s lawless doctrine of “regime change”threatened Saddam Hussein, personally, with preventive
