Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Another way to confront such Hitler rhetoric is to contrast it with opposed analogies from the same period. Say, let's compare the fake border incident that started the war on Poland with the lies to start the war on Iraq, or compare rhetoric about saving the world from evil bogeyman Stalin to that about Saddam, or compare the Nazis' method to 'fight' partisans by punishing the population to US practice in Fallujah and elsewhere...

Bad idea. It's equally ridiculous as the right's Hitler rhetoric.

But there's a fair amount of non-snarky reductio ad hitlerum among anti-Bush admin writing already and this only reinforces it. Plus I'm just allergic to the stuff.
