"The process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor" - PNAC (mirror)

If the device that exploded in 1993 under the World Trade Center had been nuclear, or had effectively dispersed a deadly pathogen, the resulting horror and chaos would have exceeded our ability to describe it. Such an act of catastrophic terrorism would be a watershed event in American history. It could involve loss of life and property unprecedented in peacetime and undermine America's fundamental sense of security, as did the Soviet atomic bomb test in 1949. Like Pearl Harbor, this event would divide our past and future into a before and after. The United States might respond with draconian measures, scaling back civil liberties, allowing wider surveillance of citizens, detention of suspects, and use of deadly force. More violence could follow, either further terrorist attacks or U.S. counterattacks. - 9/11 Commission Executive Director Philip Zelikow, Foreign Affairs , writing in 1998

The public supported America's engagement in World War II largely because of the shock effect of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor [p. 24-25].... America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America's power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public's sense of domestic well-being. [p. 35] - Zbigniew Brzezinski, The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy And Its Geostrategic Imperatives, writing in 1998

Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country. - Hermann Goering , Marshall of the Third Reich, during the Nuremberg Trials

The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men. -Plato

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy -James Madison

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities -Voltaire

The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom. -Isaak [Isaac] Judah Asimov (1920-1992)
