    4) ANOTHER POLITICAL SPEECH

    As you read the following short speech, try to guess which
    politician delivered it -

    "I ask, which leader is it today that has the vision, the
    willpower, and yes, the backbone to best protect us?

    The clear answer to that question has placed me in this hall
    with you tonight.

    There is but one man to whom I am willing to entrust our future
    and that man is our President.
    There are some crazy men who would kill us if they could. So
    our President has told us: 'All private plans, all private
    lives, have been in a sense repealed by an overriding public
    danger.'

    But where is the national unity in this country when we need it
    most?

    Now, while young Americans are dying in the sand in Iraq and
    the mountains of Afghanistan, our nation is being torn apart and
    made weaker because of the Democrats' manic obsession to bring
    down our President.

    What has happened to the nation I've spent my life working in?

    I can remember when Democrats believed that it was the duty of
    America to fight for freedom over tyranny. Time after time in
    our history, in the face of great danger, Americans worked
    together to ensure that freedom would not falter. But not today.

    Motivated more by partisan politics than by national security,
    today's Democratic leaders see America as an occupier, not a
    liberator. And nothing makes me madder than someone calling
    American troops occupiers rather than liberators.

    Tell that to the Iraqis and Afghans who have been freed because
    our President led an army of liberators, not occupiers. Tell
    that to the millions of men, women, and children who are free
    today from the Red Sea to the Caspian Sea, from Kuwait to
    Afghanistan, because our President built a military of
    liberators, not occupiers.

    Never in the history of the world has any soldier sacrificed
    more for the freedom and liberty of total strangers than the
    American soldier. And our soldiers don't just give freedom
    abroad; they preserve it for us here at home.

    Right now, the world just cannot afford an indecisive America.
    Fainthearted, self-indulgence will put at risk all we care about
    in this world. In this hour of danger, our President has had
    the courage to stand up. And I am proud to stand up with him.

    God bless this great country and God bless our President."

    No, not Dick Cheney!

    This speech was given by Joseph Goebbels, Third Reich
    Propaganda Minister, in 1940.

    Obviously, certain words and placenames were simply substituted
    - President for Fuhrer/Adolph Hitler, Democrats for Social
    Democrats, Iraq/Iraqis for Czechoslovakia/Czechs, etc and of
    course America for Germany.

    Makes you think, doesn't it?
