America's Wannsee Conference

When the German soldiers were resisting the Nazi program of the holocaust, a conference was held in a district of Berlin called the Wannsee where various people of the Nazi commanding heights got together and worked out cooperation to the end of the holocaust.  Primarily the problem was one of logistics of killing so many Jews, but German soldier decency needed to be worked around too.  Soldiers were not cooperating.  So an impersonal technological solution was devised.

Note how often in the film, built on the transcripts from the conference, sensibilities and appearances were a concern.  To Nazis.

In USA we have more soldiers in the "war on terror" killing themselves than are being killed in battle.  There is tremendous resistance within the ranks for the activities our politicians and their masters require of the soldiers. Therefore a meeting was held and a technological solution to indecency was arrived at: the USA Drone Program.  A program that kills people without the problem of conscientious objection.

Sure, the drone program is less in scale, but not in kind.  Our wars overseas are just in neither cause nor execution.  The only reason they are not larger in scale is because the promise of victims of the wars pay for the wars has not panned out.

In fact, days after the U.S. invasion, then-Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz told a congressional panel that Iraqi oil revenues would help pay for reconstructing the country, i.e. a cost of the war. “The oil revenue of that country could bring between 50 and 100 billion dollars over the course of the next two or three years. We’re dealing with a country that could really finance its own reconstruction, and relatively soon,” he said.
One month before the war, then-White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said Iraq “is a rather wealthy country. … And so there are a variety of means that Iraq has to be able to shoulder much of the burden for their own reconstruction.”

In the video listen to Heydrich explain the holocaust of the Jews is paid for by the wealth of the Jews.  Just like Native Americans have paid for their holocaust.

For the first time today the President admitted the program (an open secret) and defended it.

At least the Nazis had the decency to keep the holocaust secret.  The Germans could feign not to know.  Now we are all the more guilty, because we cannot pretend we are not unaware.  It is a shame when USA politicians do not have the decency of Nazi politicians.
