From the NYTimes and (via email) - German justice minister Herta Daeubler-Gmelin says Bunnypants' Iraq saber-rattling is wagging the dog.

"Bush wants to divert attention from his domestic problems. It's a classic tactic. It's one that Hitler used." Bush is outraged - because Daeubler-Gmelin has said out loud what everyone in Germany (and the world) believes. Daeubler-Gmelin denied comparing the two men, but did not deny comparing their tactics. "I didn't compare the persons Bush and Hitler, but their methods," she said. The Germans have learned the tragic lessons of history. Unfortunately, the misadministration's propaganda whores in the corporate media will use this to "express outrage" over the use of the 'H-word' and conveniently ignore the bigger picture.
