Of course the wwII reference is intentional, they wouldnt have called it the coalition or alliance of evil.
The world war II reference is ironic, my dad who was around to see the Germans march into the Sudety, said - prior to the invasion of Iraq,the US sounded just like the Germans back then.
whatever happened to those WMD's?
Its easy to see why the NIE report of no-less than 15 Intelligence US agencies was published. To pre-empt Cheney from striking Iran, before the Bush presidency is a lame duck.
There was already a steady drumbeat of anti-Iran war propaganda, that took the wind out of their sails.
