    Our right-wing friends think that if they repeat it often enough, someone will start to believe it, and it'll make their lives easier having such a great 'one-word-fits-all-enemies' tool to use. It seems a bit ironic to me that there's a whole internet body of rules and laws to castigate anyone who equates political behaviour with the Nazis, but similarly over-blown and over-cooked hyperbolic nonsense linking the genocidal activities of Stalin, Saloth Sar, Mao etc with the strain of democratic socialism that survives those monsters, seems to be fair play.

    If Bush II behaved like Hitler, does that mean Blair behaved like Stalin? Is either one of these two statements more acceptable or more accurate than the other?

    This tiresome North Korea analogy has been used for years by those who feel the need to deny Hitler was a Socialist, when of course he was. In fact he once described himself as a "fanatical socialist".

    Hitler was indeed a Socialist and while no self respecting contemporary Socialist would want to identify themselves with Adolf Hitler we should not rewrite history or deny the truth just because of leftist sensibilities.

    The only brush I paint people, individuals or collectivists with is with the handle they're holding.

    I don't overlook anything, sometimes ideas aren't even worth addressing because they're too preposterous or not even on the same canvass (no pun there).

    Yep...

    Let me guess - in progressiveland democratically elected fascists cant be socialists?

    IMO, Hitler was a dishonest socialist that was nothing more than a totalitarian pig no better than Stalin or any socialist pig but he was stiill a socialist.

    Also, you do understand the socialism is an economic model???

    Do you know the literal (in English) definition of socialism?

    What the **** do you think Hitler was doing when he was seizing resources, commodities and even art and redistributing such wealth to loyal clowns who were alleged Aryans, or better yet non-Jewish Germans??

    I have news for you - Hitler was stealing everything and redistributing 10% of the fortune to his idiot cronies - kinda like our federal government, just a lot less severe.

    Exactly. Socialism is an economic model in which the state (government) owns the means of production. Nazism is also an extreme authoritarian system.

    So, if we're to compare modern day socialists to Nazis, then let's by all means compare all authoritarian positions with Nazism as well: war on drugs, gay marriage, abortion, whatever the authoritarian backed issues of the day may be.

It is a suttle game of cat and mouse between technically advanced countries. When one figures out a way to defeat the electronic deception used by fighters and bombers of one country, that country must figure out a way of defeating the detection abilities of that threat.

    For example, the F-22 is currently the top of the line when it comes to countermeasures used to defeat detection by it's enemies. The next step is for it's enemies to defeat its electronic countermeasures with new technology.
    The F-22 is an overpriced joke. It can be tracked w/50s - 60s era radar.

    Any flying object that's made of metal can be tracked w/radar of sufficiently long wavelength and intensity.
