Hunter S Thompson on the war frenzy
‘ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sort of a herd mentality, a lemming-like mentality. If you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go with the flow youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re anti-American and therefore a suspect. And weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen this before, these patriotic frenzies. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s very convenient having an undeclared war that you can call a war and impose military tribunals and wartime security and we have these generals telling us that this warÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to go on for a long, long time.
Maybe not so much the generals now, the generals are a little afraid of Iraq, a little worried about it, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the civilians in the White House, the gang of thieving, just lobbyists for the military industrial complex, who are running the White House, and to be against them is to be patriotic, then hell, call me a traitor.’
