Actually I would say it is more Russia in the lead up to the 1917 revolution with the Bolsheviks being played by the "new breed" neo-Bolshevicks made up of the old Trotskyites like Bill Crystal et.al who wrote the PENAC document.
The U.S is being "white anted" from within just like Russia was and Hungary was.
If this was a "fascist" police state we would have a STRENGTHENING of the U.S NOT a diabolical WEAKENING!
The U.S is being bled dry just like Russia was. When the proletariat (middle class home owners) get sick of the war in Iraq and their dwindling house equity we will see the appearence of the Leon Bronstein (Trotsky) of our time. Perhaps he's already been on the telly?
This WHOLE Neo-Con/Conservative bullshit has to go. We are dealing with ruthless Bolsheviks and if they succeed America will face as ruthless a regime as the long suffering Russians did complete with knocks at the door in the night.
Remember what Alexander Solzhenitsyn said?
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
