Just search for "We need a common enemy to unite us." with altavista. Not many results will be returned, making me think "is this the truth or just propaganda?"  
BTW, this one is interesting  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

It's quoted in the New York Times amongst other places, so I doubt it's propaganda.  
Besides which, it's pretty much a central plank of US Military-Industrial policy anyway. If Rice were to tell a little more of the truth she would say something like "we need to maintain a common enemy so that we can continue to divert public money to extremely rich hi-tech industries in the name of 'defence', and make people swallow it by routinely scaring the shit out of them with imagined/exaggerated bogeymen".  
It was Communism, then it was Drugs, now it's Terrorism/Islam. It'll always be something.

Oh no another conspiracy theory
All this talk of shadowy cabals just dissipates peoples' energy from the real issue. Rich industrialised countries have conspired to keep developing countries in poverty as a source of cheap commodities and labour. The debt interest that they have to pay us is far greater than the value of all the aid we send over there. And we wonder why they don't like us.

Most of those developing countries do not produce anything substantial. But if you have a conspiracy against China, that's another story:)  
ps. the biggest conspiracy of all is that there no conspiracies. I've just withnessed one 6 months (or so) ago, when our Bilderberg member ex-new Economy minister Kemal Dervis has toppled the government of the time together with the media's contribution!

The "stormtronic" site seems to be down.  
Can't connect via Netscape or IE.  
(thoughts of conspiracy enter my mind;))
