In September, 2001, everybody I knew wanted to attack the middle east. I knew very few people that were against this. However, this is a prime example of how people are easily manipulated. Nazi's used a particular tactic. 1. A common person does not want to go to war. 2. Those in charge who determine policy are the ones who will go to war, and drag the common people into it. 3. It is not difficult to convince the common person to want war. Just make it seem like you are the ones being attacked. And then make them seem wrong for not wanting to fight back.
