    Bit old...

    The video was posted on YouTube in Sept 2007. Iraq isn't the problem it was 11 months ago.

    Yes there has been an 80% reduction in violence since then. Seems as though the basis for the film clip is now gone.

    I hate these sorts of goofy comparisons.

    Bush is not Hitler, Hitler is not Bush.

    Enough already!

    You guys are missing the point (I guess the guy from the video guy doesn't really make it very clear). The point is that Bush began a "preventive" war of aggression on Iraq, which is not really any different than Hitler's "preventive" war of aggression against Poland, both on false pretexts. The point isn't that Bush is trying to commit genocide or that he's a lunatic like Hitler, just that he committed the same "supreme international crime", according to the Nuremberg terminology. It could've been Mahatma Gandhi doing the same thing, and it would've still been a crime, regardless of how 'nice' Bush is or how evil Hitler was.

    That's the connection.

    It's a connection that is so biased and so uninformed that it embarrasses those of us who object to the Bush regime and actually understand WHY we do.

    While I was completely against the invasion of Iraq, comparing Iraq to Poland in 1939 is absurd.

    And comparing Bush to Hitler? Also very counter productive.

    It invites us to turn off our intellects and let flow the emotionalism which Hitler brings out in most of us.

    It is unfair, incorrect and misleading to make such a comparison.

    Obviously I am no lover of Bush or his policies, but honestly...

    I'm not sayin Bush is anything like Hitler.

    I'm saying he did the same thing.

    But you can inform, what's the world of difference between Poland and Iraq, besides the rhetoric?

    Hitler made Bush look like the kindest, Most gentle man alive.

    Comparing Bush to Hitler is retarded. About as retarded as Bush is to be exact.

    Might I add that G.W. isn't anywhere near as smart as Hitler either. Not that Hitler was good but he was certainly no dumby. I don't think the pres has the foresight to come up with such a master plan.
