Throughout time immemorial: the main idea being to get the mind of the public or your enemies off something you're actually doing but you don't want them to notice so you can do it with a little less observation.
But after 8 years of hell in the Bush reign, they are trying to rewrite history! The attention of America from the well-worn fact that his ruling Republican party have always been the robbers of the poor and the protectors of the rich. Furious that the courageous exposure of his criminal hypocrisy and traitorous deception of the American people, and enraged by the humiliation of his scandalous Administration being the continuous major subject of daily worldwide headlines.
Tough times can also lead to tough government actions and tyranny. It's a time of upheaval, flux and change for the world, just as the 1930s were, the Great Depression period before World War II. First came the Roaring '20s, then came the Depression '30s, and then came the years of war of the '40s. History doesn't always repeat itself, of course, but it can sometimes. Yes, all the makings for a police state are there, and not just in the U.S. or Britain, but in any number of countries.
