I read on this board a while ago a quotation by Hitler or Napoleon where he was saying that all you had to do to have a war is to convince the citizen there is a threat to the nation... can somebody help on this ?

I think the quote you're looking for is from Hermann Goering, not Hitler. Though both have several famous quotes along the same lines.

Herman Goering
Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.
