I thought I'd share my current assignment for English Composition. Especially since I cited ATS as a source of the information, along with one of the original threads sources of information. Enjoy the read, and feel free to comment.

"I am going to use a current new event and a past news event, to demonstrate "Appeal To The Crowd" tactics of Politicians in office. I have no love for politicians, so this will be easy to point out to you, and just as easy to understand. My opinion of politicians is as follows..."Politicians are like diapers, they need to be changed often, and for the same reason." I hope that made someone laugh.

Bush says fight against terror is 'World War III'

WASHINGTON (AFP) - US President George W. Bush said the September 11 revolt of passengers against their hijackers on board Flight 93 had struck the first blow of "World War III." In an interview with the financial news network CNBC, Bush said he had yet to see the recently released film of the uprising, a dramatic portrayal of events on the United Airlines plane before it crashed in a Pennsylvania field. But he said he agreed with the description of David Beamer, whose son Todd died in the crash, who in a Wall Street Journal commentary last month called it "our first successful counter-attack in our homeland in this new global war -- World War III".

If we are to believe what President George Bush has stated, then apparently we should applaud the start of a Third World War. I say, that is absolute nonsense. If we are to believe what Bush says, then the Russians were responsible for the "Red Scare" of the Macarthy Era, which is the past news event to which I was referring to earlier. This is called a "Red Herring" tactic, and can be seen through by anyone, with at least half a brain. I would counter President Bush and David Beamer's arguements by pointing out the McCarthy "Red Scare" and Adolf Hitler's "Jews Are Evil, and Conspiring Against The Fatherland of Germany" or even the farther back arguements that "All Indians Are Hostile" as sensationalistic rubbish.

Upon subsequently testifying before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, McCarthy proved unable to produce the name of a single "card-carrying Communist" in any government department. Nevertheless, he gained increasing popular support for his campaign of accusations by capitalizing on the fears and frustrations of a nation weary of the Korean War and appalled by Communist advances in eastern Europe and China. McCarthy proceeded to instigate a nationwide, militant anti-Communist "crusade"; to his supporters, he appeared as a dedicated patriot and guardian of genuine Americanism, to his detractors, as an irresponsible, self-seeking witch-hunter who was undermining the nation's traditions of civil liberties.

So, if we follow both McCarthy and the current President of the U.S. George W Bush correctly, we should be scared because of what they say and show us, without actually looking into more of the facts."

If you change the word "terrorists" and "terrorists actions" with words like "Russian's" and "Russian sympathizer's" you get the same thing. Just another similar type thing, in a current movie trilogy that's out.

In X-Men 1, 2, and 3...if you change "Mutant" with "terrorist" you get the same exact mindset that the people on Capitol Hill want you to see and believe.

Or, we could even go back further, to Star Wars 1,2,3,4,5, and 6 and change out the word "Jedi" for "terrorist" and of course ole Dubya would probably be Darth Vader...except a lot uglier.
