A Prof that bj might have known used to like to break that one out in a couple of his classes...He was a Germanophile like Alaric without the bad parts....That is he used top say..."You know the crowd down at the Greyhound bus station?....That's the crowd that came to power in Germany in the 1930s"

so true

And isn't it interesting that all those regimes cited were brought to power with the connivance and money of western bankers and various intelligence agencies.The CIA were particularly helpful to Mao.Not entirely unlike the shameful actions we see in Libya right now.

Anyone remember that movie with Brendan Frazer,"The Quiet American" ? A very interesting film in that it doesn't skirt about the fact the CIA destabilized Vietnam and created the climate for a Communist revolution.Check it out.
Good film. But not entirely true. Vietnam was becomming unstable long before the CIA even was a glint in the yanks eyes.  More then one power was meddling once the French got spanked b z Germans I. WWII it was Ll but certain they would lose Indochina same with the Brits losin India. The Brits at Least saw the writing on the wall. The French didn't
the current actions in lybia are not shamefull. tHey are the norm. Qadaffi duck never gained power alone nor did he sustain that power  alone. Nothing shamefull with getting rid of s tyrant and replacing him with other tyrants mode friendl to your nations interests
it's as old as the state and politics itsself. Nothing new. The Brits have done the same thing constantly so has any power worth Its salt
shame isn't the proper word. Leopards don't change their spots
normal is more like it
