I'll try to look that up when I can.

Perhaps not so odd: We could speculate about synchronicity, the
collective mind, or why the dandelions suddenly spring up all over the
lawn one morning, but actually the forerunners of the idea has been
kicking around for weeks -- why were so many experts ignored, e.g. -- and
it's become rather apparant how dumb these people are if it occurs to one
to think about it.

The propaganda has been to put the hawks in a rarefied atmosphere of
secret intelligence and grandiose plans -- for the mystification of us
all -- but the spell of illusion has been pretty much broken, and many of
the former supporters are now a even bit embarrassed (and defensive
about) to realize how throroughly they were taken in. Yet, there is an
urgency here, to stop the death and chaos -- to "smarten up", stop the
"games", and run the warmongers out of town.
