"We are the ruling race of the world. . . . We will not renounce our part in the mission of our race, trustee, under God, of the civilization of the world. . . .
He has marked us as his chosen people. . . . He has made us adept in government
that we may administer government among savage and senile peoples." : Sen.
"I firmly believe that when any territory outside the present territorial limits
of the United States becomes necessary for our defense or essential for our
commercial development, we ought to lose no time in acquiring it." : Sen.
Orville Platt of Connecticut 1894.
“Between 1898 and 1934, the Marines invaded Cuba 4 times, Nicaragua 5 times,
Honduras 7 times, the Dominican Republic 4 times, Haiti twice, Guatemala once,
Panama twice, Mexico 3 times and Columbia 4 times,” Washington has intervened
militarily in foreign countries more than 200 times.”
"If the people are not convinced (that the Free World is in mortal danger) it
would be impossible for Congress to vote the vast sums now being spent to avert danger. With the support of public
opinion, as marshalled by the press, we are off to a good start. It is our Job -
yours and mine -- to keep our people convinced that the only way to keep
disaster away from our shores is to build up America's might." -- Charles
Wilson, Chairman of the Board of General Electric and Truman appointee to head
the Office of Defence Mobilization, in a speech to the Newspaper Publishers

By Frank Scott
"Attempting to portray Iran as a nuclear menace to Israel and the world, in that
order, even though it has no nuclear weapons and Israel has hundreds, is not

a situation that calls for bold action to immediately reverse the present

Bush 'spoiling for a fight' with Iran:

intelligence "dossier" this week detailing evidence of Iran's alleged complicity

sign that the Bush administration is building a case for war.
A Powerful Iran not Tolerated by US :
