“Rambostein” Liberated Auschwitz the bloody fictional made-for-normies drama! As even the Holohoaxers acknowledge, the Germans had already abandoned the camp before the Soviets arrived.
No pretext for Sulzberger’s Times to sing the song that never ends about the event that never happened is too trivial. In this case, the death of a 98-year-old Soviet “liberator” of the Bullshwitz concentration camp is enough to merit a longer than usual obituary — because David Dushmanwas like, ya know — such a famous and important personage of world history (rolling eyes sarcastically).
Hours after the Germans had unconditionally surrendered (and were thus rendered voiceless) on May 8, 1945, the “paper of record” ran an uncritical account of a just-released Soviet report of the “horrors” which took place there. Incredibly, it is that specific atrocity propaganda report — pooped out by the commie comedy writers of Stalin’s “Extraordinary State Commission for the Establishment and Investigation of the Atrocities of the German Fascist Invaders and Their Accomplices and the Damage They Caused to Citizens, Collective Farms, Public Organizations, State Enterprises and Institutions of the USSR”(we kid you not, that’s the actual official name of the commission) — which remains the academic foundation of the Holocaust tale until this day.
Let’s dive in into this obituary of Devious Dushman for some Anti-New York Times debunking that will never end about the song that never ends about the event that never happened (like they say it did.)
Times: David Dushman, who as a soldier for the Soviet Union drove his tank through the electric fence surrounding the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz on Jan. 27, 1945,… Rebuttal: Oh the bloody fictional made-for-normies drama! As even the Holohoaxers acknowledge, the Germans had already abandoned the camp before the Soviets arrived. There would have been no need for Dushman to “drive his tank through the electric fence.” The gates of Bullshwitz were wide open!
Times: … died in Munich on Saturday. He was 98. Rebuttal: Such a tragic irony — the Bolshevik invader ended up living in Germany. God only knows how many blonde Berlin “shiksas” he must have raped back in ’45.
Times: Mr. Dushman was a 21-year-old Red Army soldier when he drove his T-34 into the high, electric barbed-wire fence surrounding the Auschwitz death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland. Rebuttal: Did anyone, other than Dushman, actually witness this heroic tank assault on Bullshwitz? No matter how many times the writer, Berlin correspondent Melissa Eddy, states that Dushman drove his tank through the electric fence (twice in the text of the article and once again in a picture caption), the story is still implausible and unverifiable.
Times: Approaching the camp, he recalled, he peered through the viewing slit of his tank and was shocked by what he saw. Rebuttal: Oh dear. Get your hip waders on, boys and girls. Here comes the stinky stuff.
Times: “Everywhere there were skeletons,” he told the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung in 2015. “They stumbled from the barracks, sat and lay among the dead. It was horrifying. We threw all of our canned food at them and drove on quickly, to keep chasing the fascists.” Rebuttal: (palm to face, sighing, shaking head) I hope you didn’t hit any of those skeletal Jews and Communists on the head with those cans of food (made in the USA and shipped via Alaska, by the way) that you threw at them, Mr. Dushman.
FLASHBACK / October 2020 Same tank-through-gate and skeletons drama, from the American side:
“World War II Hero Who Drove Tank Through Gate of Dachau Concentration Camp Dies At 95”
“We were facing the front gate at Dachau prison,” Feezel said. “My commander said, ‘Jim, put the tank through that gate.’ So, I have the dubious honor of doing that. And, immediately glancing over at the bodies stacked like cordwood, this young 19-year-old just about lost it.”
Times: By the time Mr. Dushman reached Auschwitz, he had been wounded three times. He said he was one of only 69 men from the 12,000 in his division to survive. Rebuttal: Wow. He was a regular “John Rambostein.” If you say so, Mr. Dushman. We won’t ask for verification of your battlefield heroism. That would be “anti-Semitic ,” dontcha’ know?
Times: More than 1.1 million men, women and children were murdered in the camp… Rebuttal: But the original report issued by the “Extraordinary State Commission,” pumped-up by the Slimes, and cited by “scholars” up until about 1990 said it was 4 million. Oops.
Times: A Russian Jew, Mr. Dushman and his family were familiar with anti-Semitism and state-sanctioned discrimination against Jews in the Soviet Union. Rebuttal: You see, even in the Jewish-established Soviet Union, the atheistic anti-Christian “Goy” Communists, like Stalin, never trusted the Trotskyite Jews and turned on them later on. I guess that blows the “anti-Semitism is the product of Christian bigotry” argument out of the water, no?
Times: “My biggest dream and hope for future generations is to live in a world where there is no war,” Dushman (a former fencing coach) said during a 2015 visit to Switzerland. Rebuttal: Well, that’s a noble sentiment, Doucheman. But if you were sincere about that dream, you should have had that talk with some of your “higher brethren” during the living years — the same gang of greasy ghouls that engineered and funded just about every major war since the “Coalition Wars” against Napoleon. But I suspect that when your ilk speaks of “a world where there is no war,” you mean a planetary government lorded over by “the usual suspects.”
Excerpts from ‘The British Mad Dog’ // By M S King
CHURCHILL THE PLAGIARIST AND ALSO THE USER OF GHOSTWRITERS
In light of his severe alcoholism, his high-life-living and his record of academic mediocrity, one has got to wonder how this puffed-up “literary giant” is able to muster the time and discipline necessary to author so many well-written books. Well, you see, the “prolific” multi-millionaire writer not only has the help of “literary assistants,” (ghostwriters) but he is also a plagiarist!
A young historian Maurice Ashley contributes heavily to Churchill’s widely-acclaimed 1937 ‘A History of the English-Speaking Peoples’. Years later, another historian named William Deakin pens an enormous amount of material for Churchill, including most of the text of his “widely acclaimed” series on World War II. The military narratives are supplied by a retired general, Sir Henry Pownall.
By the 1950’s, an aging and alcohol-addled Churchill is relying upon an entire team of writers to do much more than just research, contribute, and edit, but really take over his work.
In addition to his reliance upon ghostwriting historians, the imitation intellectual also engaged in gross plagiarism. British historian Max Hastings, writing in The Telegraph, November 2, 2004, informs us:
“Pownall, ironically enough, had often confided to his own wartime diary rage and frustration about Churchill’s intemperate interferences in military operations. Now, for a salary of £1,000 a year, along with a less influential naval counterpart, he played a key role in the fortification of the Churchill legend.
Churchill skillfully injected into the narrative just sufficient rolling phrases in his own inimitable style to put a personal stamp upon the published version. The opinions and judgments expressed were, of course, entirely his own. But, from the delivery of the first volume onwards, some critics, including Life magazine which had paid vast sums for serial rights, expressed misgivings about countless pages of contemporary documents rendered verbatim in the text, to make up the weight.
By the time of the third volume, Life’s Henry Luce was growling: “The old boy is chiseling on us. If he were younger, we’d kick him in the shins.” Churchill narrowly averted litigation for plagiarism from Samuel Morison, an American naval historian whose narrative of the Pacific sea battles was recycled in the former Prime Minister’s volumes.”
MID 1930’s CHURCHILL THE FORGER, BROKE AND DESPERATE, RESORTS TO SELLING FAKE PAINTINGS
Just how desperate was Churchill’s financial situation during the 1930’s? Noted British historian and master document digger David Irving informs us:
“Churchill of course is no stranger to counterfeit art. In dire financial straits in the 1930s he took to faking the paintings of the deceased French impressionist Charles Maurin because Maurin’s signature sold somewhat better in the Left Bank boutiques in those days than did his own.
President Franklin D Roosevelt spotted the little deception, and wrote him a joshing letter about it in February 1942. For some reason those letters never made it into the official volumes of Churchill Roosevelt correspondence — an omission I have rectified in “Churchill’s War”, vol. ii: “Triumph in Adversity”. Now that’s Real History. Spreads like Butter.” (8)
Roosevelt had come to learn of the scam from a fine arts expert in Washington DC. Irving, in another article, quotes from the teasingly friendly 1942 letter in which Roosevelt writes to Churchill as though it is not known who the forger is:
“Dear Winston — these people who go around under assumed names render themselves open to all kinds of indignity and suspicion.” (9)
Having hinted at blackmail, Roosevelt mischievously added:
“The British Embassy was asked for verification and I suppose the matter has been to Scotland Yard and back again.” (10).
Call it callousness, call it reprisal, call it a policy of hostile neglect: a million Germans taken prisoner by Eisenhower’s armies died in captivity after the surrender.
In the spring of 1945, Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich was on the brink of collapse, ground between the Red Army, advancing westward towards Berlin, and the American, British, and Canadian armies, under the overall command of General Dwight Eisenhower, moving eastward over the Rhine. Since the D-Day landings in Normandy the previous June, the westward Allies had won back France and the Low Countries, and some Wehrmacht commanders were already trying to negotiate local surrenders. Other units, though, continued to obey Hitler’s orders to fight to the last man. Most systems, including transport, had broken down, and civilians in panic flight fromt he advancing Russians roamed at large.
“Hungry and frightened, lying in grain fields within fifty feet of us, awaiting the appropriate time to jump up with their hands in the air”; that’s how Captain H. F. McCullough of the 2nd Anti-Tank Regiment Division described the chaos of the German surrender at the end of the Second World War. In a day and a half, according to Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery, 500,000 Germans surrendered to his 21st Army Group in Northern Germany. Soon after V-E Day–May 8, 1945–the British-Canadian catch totalled more that 2 million. Virtually nothing about their treatment survives in the archives in Ottawa or London, but some skimpy evidence from the International Committee of the Red Cross, the armies concerned, and the prisoners themselves indicates that almost all continued in fair health. In any case, most were quickly released and sent home, or else transferred to the French to help in the post-war work of reconstruction. The French army had itself taken fewer than 300,000 prisoners.
Like the British and Canadians, the Americans suddenly faced astounding numbers of surrendering German troops: the final tally of prisoners taken by the U.S. army in Europe (excluding Italy and North Africa) was 5.25 million. But the Americans responded very differently.
Among the early U.S captives was one Corporal Helmut Liebich, who had been working in an anti-aircraft experimental group at Peenemunde on the Baltic. Liebich was captured by the Americans on April 17, near Gotha in Central Germany. Forty-two years later, he recalled vividly that there were no tents in the Gotha camp, just barbed wire fences around a field soon churned to mud. The prisoners received a small ration of food on the first day but it was then cut in half. In order to get it, they were forced to run a gauntlet. Hunched ocer, they ran between lines of American guards who hit them with sticks as they scurried towards their food. On April 27, they were transferred to the U.S. camp at Heidesheim farther wet, where there was no food at all for days, then very little. Exposed, starved, and thirsty, the men started to die. Liebich saw between ten and thirty bodies a day being dragged out of his section, B, which at first held around 5,200 men.. He saw one prisoner beat another to death to get his piece of bread. One night when it rained, Liebich saw the sides of the holes in which they were sheltered, dug in soft sandy earth, collapse on men who were too weak to struggle out. They smothered before anyone could get to them. Liebich sat down and wept. “I could hardly believe men could be so cruel to each other.”
Typhus broke out in Heidesheim about the beginning of May. Five days after V-E Day, on May 13, Liebich was transferred to another U.S. POW camp, at Bingen-Rudesheim in the Rhineland near Bad Kreuznach, where he was told that the prisoners numbered somewhere between 200,000 and 400,000, all without shelter, food, water, medicine, or sufficient space.
Soon he fell sick with dysentery and typhus. he was moved again, semiconscious and delirious, in an open-topped railway car with about sixty other prisoners: northwest down the Rhine, with a detour through Holland, where the Dutch stood on bridges to smash stones down on the heads of the prisoners. Sometimes the American guards fired warning shots near the Dutch to keep them off. After three nights, his fellow prisoners helped him stagger into the hug camp at Rheinberg, near the border with the Netherlands, again without shelter or food.
When a little food finally did arrive, it was rotten. In none of the four camps had Leibich seen any shelter for the prisoners. the death rate in the U.S. Rhineland camps at this point, according to surrviving data from a medical survey, was about thirty per cent per year. A normal death rate for a civilian population in 1945 was between one and two percent.
One day in June, through hallucinations of his fever, Liebich saw “the Tommies” coming into the camp. The British had taken over Rheinberg, and that probably saved his life. At this point, Liebich, who is five-foot-ten, weighed 96.8 ponds.
According to stories told to this day by other ex-prisoners of Rheinberg, tha last act of the Americans before the British took over was to bulldoze one section level while there were still men living in their holes in the ground.
Under the Geneva Convention, three important rights are guaranteed prisoners of war: that they will be fed and sheltered to the same standard as base or depot troops of the Capturing Power; that they can send and receive mail; and that they will be visited by delegates of the International Red Cross (ICRC) who will report in secret on their treatment to a Protecting Power. (In the cas eof Germany, as the government disintegrated in the closing stages of the war, Switzerland had been designated the protecting power.)
In fact, German prisoners taken by the U.S. Army at the end of the Second World War were denied these and most other rights by a series of specific decisions and directives stemming mainly from SHAEF–Supreme Headquarters, Allied Expeditionary Force. General Dwight Eisenhower was both supreme commander of SHAEF–all the Allied armies in northwest Europe–and the commanding general of the U.S. forces in the European theatre. He was subject to the Combined Chiefs of Staff (CCS) of Britain and the U.S., to the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), and to the policy of the U.S. government, but in the absence of explicit directives–to the contrary or otherwise–ultimate responsibility for the treatment of the German prisoners in American hands lies with him.
“God , I hate the Germans,” Eisenhower wrote to his wife, Mamie, in September, 1944. Earlier, in front of the British ambassador to Washington, he had said that all the 3,500 or so officers of the German General Staff should be “exterminated.”
In March, 1945, a message to the Combined Chiefs of Staff signed and initialled by Eisenhower recommended creating a new class of prisoners–Disarmed Enemy Forces, or DEFs–who, unlike Geneva-defined prisoners of war, would not be fed by the army after the surrender of Germany. This would be a direct breach of the Geneva Convention. The message, dated March 10, argues in part: “The additional maintenance commitment entailed by declaring the German Armed Forces prisoners [sic] of war which would necessitate the prevision of rations on a scale equal to that of base troops would prove far beyond the capacity of the Allies even if all German sources were tapped.” It ends: “Your approval is requested. Existing plans have been prepared upon this basis.”
On April 26, 1945, the Combined Chiefs approved the DEF status for prisoners of war in American hands only: the British members had refused to adopt the American plan for their own prisoners. The Combined Chiefs stipulated that the status of disarmed troops be kept secret.
By that time, Eisenhower’s quartermaster general at SHAEF, General Robert Littlejohn, had already twice reduced rations for prisoners, and a SHAEF message signed “Eisenhower” had reported to General George Marshall, the U.S. Army Chief of staff, that the prisoner pens would provide “no shelter or other comforts….”
The problem was not supplies. There was more than enough material stockpiled in Europe to construct prison camp facilities. Eisenhower’s special assistant, general Everett Hughes, had visited the huge supply dumps at Naples and Marseille and reported: “More stocks than we can ever use. Stretch as far as eye can see.” Food should not have been a problem, either. In the U.S., wheat and corn surpluses were higher than they had ever been, and there was a record crop of potatoes. The army itself had so much food in reserve that when a whole warehouse was dropped from the supply list by accident in England it was not noticed for three months. In addition, the International Red Cross had over 100,000 tons of food in storage in Switzerland. When it tried to send two trainloads of this to the American sector of Germany, U.S. Army Officers turned the trains back, saying their warehouses were already overflowing with ICRC food which they had never distributed.
Nonetheless it was through the supply side that the policy of deprivation was carried out. Water, food, tents, space, medicine–everything necessary for the prisoners was kept fatally scarce. Camp Rheinberg, where Corporal Liebich would fetch up in in mid-May, shivering with dysentery and typhus, had no food at all when it was opened on April 17. As in the other big “Rhine meadow” camps, opened by the Americans in mid-April, there were no guard towers, tents, buildings, cooking facilities, water, latrines, or food.
George Weiss, at tank repairman who now lives in Toronto, recalls of his camp on the Rhine: “All night we had to sit up jammed against each other. But the lack of water was the worst thing of all. For three and a half days, we had no water at all. We would drink our own urine….”
Private Heinz T. (his surname is withheld at his request) had just turned eighteen in hospital when the Americans walked into his ward on April 18. he and all his fellow patients were taken out to the camp at Bad Kreuzpath in the Rhineland, which already held several hundred thousand prisoners. Heinz was wearing only a pair of shorts, shoes, and a shirt.
Heinz was far from the youngest in the camp, which also held thousands of displaced German civilians. there were children as young as six among the prisoners, as well as pregnant women, and men over sixty. At the beginning, when trees still grew i the camp, some men managed to cut off limbs to build a fire. the guards ordered the fire put out. In many of the enclosures, it was forbidden to dig holes in the ground for shelter. “All we had to eat was grass,” Heinz remembers.
Charles von Luttichau was convalescing at home when he decided to surrender voluntarily to US troops about to occupy his house. He was taken to Camp Kripp, on the Rhine near Remagen.
“We were kept in crowded barbed wire cages in the open with scarcely any food,” he recalled recently. “More than half the days we had no food at all. On the rest, we got a little K ration. I could see from the package that they were giving us one-tenth of the rations that they issued to their own men….I complained to the American camp commander that he was breaking the Geneva Convention, but he just said, ‘Forget the Convention. You haven’t any rights.’
“The latrines were just logs flung over ditches next to the barbed-wire fences. Because of illness, the men had to defecate on the ground. Soon, many of us were too weak to take our trousers off first. So our clothing was infected, and so was the mud where we had to walk and sit and lie down. In these conditions, our men very soon started to die. Within a few days, some of the men who had gone healthy into the camp were dead. I saw our men dragging many bodies to the gate of the camp, where they were thrown loose on top of each other onto trucks, which took them away.”
Von Luttichau’s mother was American and he later emigrated to Washington, D.C., where he became a historian and wrote a military history for the U.S. Army. he was in the Kripp camp for about three months.
Wolfgang Iff, who was imprisoned at Rheinberg and still lives in Germany, reports that, in his subsection of perhaps 10,000 prisoners, thirty to fifty bodies were dragged out every day. A member of the burial work party, Iff says he helped haul the dead from his cage out to the gate of the camp, where the bodies were carried by wheel barrow to several big steel garages. there Iff and his team stripped the corpses of clothing, snapped off half of their aluminium dog tag, spread the bodies in layers of fifteen to twenty, with ten shovelfuls of quicklime over each layer till they were stacked a metre high, placed the personal efefcts in a bag for the Americans, then left. Some of the corpses were dead of gangrene following frostbite. (It was an unusually wet, cold spring.) A dozen or more others had grown too weak to cling to the log flung across the ditch for a latrine, and had fallen off and drowned.
The conditions in the American camps along the Rhine in late April were observed by two colonels in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, James Mason and Charles Beasley, who described them in a paper published in 1950: “Huddled close together for warmth, behind the barbed wire was a most awesome sight–nearly 100,000 haggard, apathetic, dirty, gaunt, blank-staring med clad in dirty field grey uniforms, and standing ankle-deep in mud….The German Divisions Commander reported that the men had not eaten for at least two days, and the provisions of water was a major problem–yet only 200 yards away was the River Rhine running bankfull.”
On May 4, 1945, the first German prisoners of war in U.S. hands were transferred to DEF status. The same day, the U.S. war Department banned mail to or from the prisoners. (when the International Committee of the Red Cross suggested a plan for restoring mail in June, it was rejected.)
On May 8, V-E Day, the German government was abolished and, simultaneously, the U.S. State Department dismissed Switzerland as the protecting power for the German prisoners. (Prime Minister Mackenzie King of Canada protested to the foreign Office in London the parallel removal of the Swiss as protecting power in British-Canadian camps, but was squelched for his pains.) With this done, the State Department informed the International Red Cross that, since there was no protecting power to report to, there was no longer and point in visiting the camps.
From then on, prisoners held by the US Army had no access to any impartial observer, nor could they receive food parcels, clothing, or medicines from any relief agency, or letters from their kin.
general George Patton’s US Third Army was the only army in the whole European theatre to free significant numbers of captives during ma, saving many of them from probable death. Bothe Omar Bradley and General J.C.H. lee, Commander Communications Zone (Com Z) Europe, ordered a release of prisoners within a week of the war’s end, but a SHAEF order signed “Eisenhower” countermanded them on my 15.
That same day, according to a minute of their meeting, General Eisenhower and Prime Minister Churchill talked about reducing prisoner rations. Churchill asked for an agreement on the scale of rations for prisoners, because he would soon have to announce cuts in the British meat ration and wanted to make sure that the prisoners “as far as possible…should be fed on those supplies which we could best spare.” Eisenhower replied that he had already “given the matter considerable attention,” but was planning to re-examine the whole thing to see “whether or not a further ereduction was possible.” He told Churchill that POWs had been getting 2,200 calories a day. (The US Army medical Corps considered 2,150 an absolute minimum subsistence level for sedentary adults living under shelter. US troops were issued 4,000 calories a day.) What he did not tell Churchill was that the army was not feeding the DEFs at all, or was feeding them far less than those who still enjoyed prisoner-of-war status.
Rations were reduced again soon after this: a direct cut was recorded in the Quartermaster Reports. But indirect cuts were taking place as well. One was the effect of extraordinary gaps between prisoner strength as given on the ration lists and official “on hand” accounts, and between the on-hand counts, and between the on-hand count and the actual number of prisoners in the camps.
The meticulous General Lee grew so worried about the discrepancies that he fired off a challenging cable from his headquarters in paris to SHAEF headquarters in Frankfurt:
“This Headquarters is having considerable difficulty in establishing adequate basis for requisitioning rations for prisoners of war currently held in Theatre…In response to inquiries from this Headquarters…several varying statements of number of prisoners held in theatre have been published by SHAEF.”
He then cites the latest SHAEF statement:
“Cable…dated 31 May states 1,890,000 prisoners of war and 1,200,000 disarmed German forces on hand. Best available figures at this Headquarters show prisoners of war in ComZ910,980, in ComZ transient enclosures 1,002,422 and in Twelfth Army GP 965,125, making a total of 2,878,537 and an additional 1,000,000 disarmed German forces Germany and Austria.”
The situation was astounding: Lee was reporting a million or more men in the US Army camps in Europe than SHAEF said it ha don its books. But he was wrestling with the wind: he had to his issue of food on the number of prisoners on hand supplied to him by SHAEF G-3 (Operations).
Given the general turmoil, fluctuating and inaccurate tallies were probably inevitable, but more than 1 million captives can actual be seen disappearing between two reports of the Theatre Provost Marshal, issued on the same day, June2. the last in a series of daily reports from the TPM logs 2,870,400 POWs on hand at June 2. The first report of the new weekly series, dated the same day, says that there are only 1,836,000 on hand. At one point in the middle of June, the prisoner strength on the ration list was shown as 1,421,559, while on Lee’s and other evidence there were probably almost three times that number.
Spreading the rations thinner was one way to guarantee starvation. Another was accomplished by some strange army bookkeeping during June and July. A million prisoners who had been receiving at least some food because of their nominal POW status lost their rights and their food when they were secretly transferred to the DEF status. The shift was made deliberately over many week, with careful attention paid to maintaining plausible balances in SHAEF’s weekly POW and DEF reports. (The discrepancy between those “shifted” from POW status during the period from June 2 to July 28 and those “received” in the DEF status is only 0.43 per cent.) The reclassification to DEF did not require any transfer of men to new camps, or involve any new organisation to get German civilians supplies to them. The men stayed where they were. All that happened was that, by the clatter of a typewriter, their skimpy bit of US Army food was stopped.
The effect of a policy arranged through accountancy and conveyed by winks and nods–without written orders–was first to mystify, then to frustrate, then to exhaust the middle-rank officers who were responsible for POWs. A colonel in the Quartermaster Section of the advance US fighting units wrote a personal plea to Quartermaster General Robert Littlejohn as early as April 27: “Aside from the 750 tons received from Fifteenth Army, no subsistence has been received nor do I expect any. What desirable Class II and IV (rations) we have received has been entirely at the suffernece of the Armies, upon personbal appeal and has been insignificant in relation to the demands which are being put upon us by the influx of prisoners of war.”
Rumours of conditions in the camps ran through the US Army. “Boy, those camps were bad news,” said Benedict K. Zobrist, a technical sergeant in the Medical Corps. “We were warned to stay as far away as we could.” In May and early June of 1945, a team of US Medical Corps doctors did survey some of the Rhineland camps, holding just over 80,000 German POWs. Its report is missing from the appropriate section of the National Archives in Washington, but two secondary sources reproduce some of the findings. The three main killers were diarrhoea and dysentery (treated as one category), cardiac disease, and pneumonia. But, straining medical terminology, the doctors also recorded deaths from “emaciation” and “exhaustion.” And their data revealed death rates eighty times as high as any peacetime norm.
Only 9.7 percent to fifteen percent of the prisoners had died of causes clearly associated with lack of food, such as emaciation and dehydration, and “exhaustion.” But the other diseases, directly attributable to exposure, overcrowding, filth, and lack of sanitation, were undoubtedly exacerbated by starvation. As the report noted, “Exposure, overcrowding of pens and lack of food and sanitary facilities all contributed to these excessive (death) rates.” The data, it must be remembered, were taken from the POW camps, not from the DEF camps.
By the end of May,1945, more people had already died in the US camps than would die in the atomic blast at Hiroshima.
On June 4, 1945, a cable signed “Eisenhower” told Washington that it was “urgently necessary to reduce the number of prisoners at earliest opportunity by discharging all classes of prisoners not likely to be required by Allies.” It is hard to understand what prompted this cable. No reason for it is evident in the massive cable traffic that survives the period in the archives in London, Washington, and Abilene, Kansas. And far from ordering Eisenhower to take or hold on to prisoners, the Combined Chiefs’ message of April 26 had urged him not to take in any more after V-E Day, even for labour. Nonetheless more than 2 million DEFs were impounded after May 8.
During June, Germany was partitioned into zones of occupation and in July, 1945, SHAEF was disbanded. Eisenhower, reverting to his single role as US commanding general in Europe, becoming military governor of the US zone. He continued to keep out Red Cross representatives, and the US Army also informed American relief teams that the zone was closed to them. It was closed to all relief shipments as well–until December, 1945, when a slight relaxation came in to effect.
Also starting in July, the Americans turned over between 600,000 and 700,000 German captives to the French to help repair damages done to their country during the war. many of the transferees were in five US camps clustered around Dietersheim, near Mainz, in the section of Germany that had just come under French control. (most of the rest were in US camps in France.)
On July 10, a French unit took over Dietersheim and seventeen days later a Captain Julien arrived to assume command. His report survives as part of an army inquiry into a dispute between Julien and his predecessor. In the first camp he entered, he testified to finding muddy ground “people living skeletons,” some of whom died as he watched. others huddled under bits of cardboard which they clutched although the July day was hot. Women lying in holes in the ground stared up at him with hunger oedema bulging their bellies in gross parody of pregnancy; old men with long grey hair watched him feebly; children of six or seven with the racoon rings of starvation looked at him from lifeless eyes. Tow German doctors in the “hospital” were trying to care for the dying on the ground under the hot sky, between, the marks of the tent that the Americans had taken with them. Julien, who had fought against the Germans with his regiment, the 3erne Regiment de Tirailleure Algeriens, found himself thinking in horror: “This is just like the photographs of Buchenwald and Dachau.”
There were 103, 500 people in the five camps round Dietersheim and amongst them Julien’s officers counted 32, 640 who could do no work at all. These were released immediately. In all, two-thirds of the prisoners taken over by the French that summer from American camps in Germany and in France were useless for reparations labour. In the camp at Sainte-Marthe, 615 of 700 captives were reported to be unable to work. At Erbiseul near Mons, Belgium, according to a written complaint, twenty-five per cent of the men received by the French were “dechets,” or garbage.
In July and August, as US Quartermaster Littejohn signalled to Eisenhower in due course, the Army food reserves in Europe grew by thirty-nine percent.
On August 4, a one-sentence order signed “Eisenhower” condemned all prisoners of wear still on hand in the US camps to DEF status: “Effective immediately all members of the German forces held in US custody in the American zone of occupation in GERMANY will be considered as disarmed enemy forces and and not as having the status of prisoner of war.” No reason was given. Surviving weekly tallies suggest the dual classification was preserved, but, for the POWs now being treated as DEFs, the death rate quadrupled within a few weeks, from .2 percent per week to .8 percent.
Long-time DEFs were dying at nearly five times that rate. the official “Weekly PW and DEF Report” for the week ending Sept 8, 1945, still exists in the US National archives in Washington. It shows an aggregate of 1,056,482 prisoners being held by the US Army in the European theatre, of whom about two-thirds are identified as POWs. the other third–363,587 men–are DEFs. During that one week, 13,051 of them died.
In November, 1045, general Eisenhower succeeded George Marshall as US Army chief of staff and returned to the US. In January, 1946, the camps still held significant numbers of captives but the US had wound down its prisoner holdings almost to zero by the end of 1946. the French continued holding hundreds of of thousands through 1946, but gradually reduced the number to nothing by about 1949. During the 1950’s, most non-record material relating to the US prison camps was destroyed by the Army.
Eisenhower had deplored the Germans’ useless defence of the Reich in the last months of the war because of the waste of life. At least ten times as many Germans–undoubtedly 800,000, almost certainly more than 900,000, and quite probably over 1 million–died in the French and American camps as were killed in all the combat on the Western Front in northwest Europe from America’s entry into the war in 1941 through to April, 1945.
I have been warning about an inevitable East vs. West economic war for many years now. The question was never a matter of likelihood, it was always just a matter of timing. When would the most convenient time be for World War III?
The issue of “convenience” might sound odd, but I want readers to remember one rule: All wars are banker wars.
There is nothing you cannot eventually understand in terms of geopolitics as long as you accept the fact that international conflicts are generally engineered and always designed to benefit a particular group of establishment power brokers and financial elites.
If you are one of those people who assume all of these events are merely “random and unfortunate coincidence” then you’ll remain in the dark for the rest of your life – and will never grasp why terrible things are happening to you as the world falls apart.
You will go to an early grave because you were unprepared while still thinking you were the smartest person in the room.
In the article Order out of Chaos: How the Ukraine Conflict Is Designed to Benefit Globalists, Is outlined the many factors that tie the Kremlin to globalist institutions like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), the International Monetary Fund (IMF), elitists like Henry Kissinger and international banks like Goldman Sachs. The reality is, Russia has long been attached to globalist interests and this is not going to change because of the war in Ukraine, just as it did not change after Russia annexed Crimea.
China is, of course, even worse when it comes to collusion with globalist institutions. The nation accrued trillions of dollars in debt because this is a prerequisite for joining the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights (SDR) basket of currencies. Yes, China went from being a nation of minimal debt to being trillions in the red just because the IMF demands “liquidity” for a nation’s currency to be considered viable for their global centralization initiative. This is not the behavior of a country that is anti-globalist.
I’m not going to continue rehashing the facts surrounding eastern nations and their attachments to the globalists here. I’ve already done that for well over a decade and frankly I grow tired of having to rehash the lessons that brilliant researchers like Antony Sutton expertly addressed back before I was born. If there’s a major war, then there are globalists behind it influencing both sides and seeking to gain more power. If you haven’t figured this out by now, then you never will.
Here’s What War Is Good For
Why engineer a war? Simple – when you play both sides of a chess game, you always end up the winner. Beyond that, chaos is the ultimate recipe for advancing draconian agendas that the public would never allow to pass during peacetime.
What I want to examine here instead is the issue of timing and development; how is this massive economic war going to play out and how long will it take to happen? Once we understand the stages, maybe we can brace for impact and take actions to change the outcome.
The first step is to acknowledge that the ball is in the court of eastern nations and that their actions will dictate the pace of events.
The Economic Lesson The West Has Forgotten
True wealth has nothing to do with money or debt creation; true wealth comes from resources, the means of production and labor. This is something the Marxists actually got right in their philosophy; the problem is that Marxists are only interested in ways to steal labor, resources and production while making the public think that such theft is a good thing.
Eastern nations continue to understand what real wealth is. You can have all the money in the world but if you have no manufacturing base or resource development then you have nothing.
It’s as simple as that.
If a nation has no real wealth and no means of creating it, no printing press is going to save its economy.
The West has abandoned much of its means of production and has crippled the exploration of its own resources through fake environmental concerns like “carbon pollution.” The East has not done this, at least not in a way that affects long term productivity. Therefore, the East is in the strongest position to survive a global economic conflict.
But the real key to the progression of an economic world war is the combination of countries involved and their trade agreements.
Russia and China, for example, have been developing bilateral trade meant to cut out the U.S. dollar for many years now. Russia is resource-rich, and China has the world’s largest manufacturing and export base. An alliance makes perfect economic sense. And this is exactly what has happened.
Only weeks before the invasion of Ukraine, Russia signed a 30-year oil and gas contract with China worth hundreds of billions of dollars. This deal coincides with the construction of a major pipeline from Russia to China which will be completed by 2025.
India also made arrangements for increased oil shipments from Russia, and will pay without the dollar (formerly the world’s sole petro-currency). Furthermore, the promise of lower prices while the rest of the oil world is experiencing rapid inflation in energy prices is highly tempting for those purchasing oil, natural gas or coal from Russia.
The other nations of the BRICS bloc (Brazil, India, China and South Africa) have all been highly active in trade with Russia despite western sanctions and the removal of Russian banks from the SWIFT international payments network. This is exactly what I predicted would happen many years ago.
But how does this trading bloc affect the time frame of the world war?
An Economic War Has Economic Targets
It has been my belief that the real target of this war is not Russia or China, but the U.S. dollar and the American economy. Yes, there will be far reaching financial consequences beyond the U.S., but our economy is the only economy that is completely reliant on our currency’s global reserve status.
A world war using economic weapons and tactics is the worst type of war we could fight because it is not a war we can win. The dollar’s global reserve status is our Achilles heel. It is not a strength, but a weakness.
While all eyes are on the shooting war in Ukraine on the other side of the planet, very few realize that the worst damage is going to hit us right here at home.
The sanctions on Russia are only a part of the problem, as this is creating momentum towards a general decoupling from the dollar trade. The bigger issue is the BRICS nations (and their export/import partners) who will refuse to accept sanctions because they are economically dependent on each other.
One example is the recent announcement by Hungary that they plan to refuse any cuts to Russian oil and gas imports. Why? Because this would cause an energy crisis in their country, one they couldn’t recover from.
Many other nations are following this logic around the world, and if NATO is going to continue pushing for economic isolation of Russia, then those countries will invariably stop using the dollar as their reserve currency.
Why “invariably,” you might ask – why does Russia’s economic isolation lead to the end of the dollar’s global reserve status? Here’s why: when the Biden administration and the European Union (EU) sanctioned Russia, they also froze Russia’s U.S. dollar accounts and terminated Russia’s connection with the international payments platform. This was a very clear method of coercion! It’s as though Biden called up Putin and told him, “Get out of Ukraine or else. That’s a real nice economy you got there. Be a shame if something, ah, happened to it…”
The rest of the world watched the West financially cancel Russia with a mix of awe and horror. This act of economic warfare revealed a nearly-unthinkable conclusion: If they did it to Russia, they could do it to us, too…
…wars tend to turn into major junctures for global currencies, and with Russia losing access to its foreign currency reserves, a message has been sent to all countries that they can’t count on these money stashes to actually be theirs in the event of tension. As such, it may make less and less sense for global reserve managers to hold dollars for safety, given that they could be taken away right when they’re most needed.
Dylan Grice of Calderwood Capital put this in more stark terms:
In other words, the establishment elites in the US and Europe are creating the conditions which can destroy the dollar.
The dollar’s status is entirely dependent on faith and belief in its demand. If demand for dollars wavers because of global sanctions, then all those trillions of greenbacks held in overseas banks will come flooding back into the U.S., shoving the nation deeper into stagflationary crisis.
The globalists are perfectly aware that this will be the consequence. In fact, they’re counting on it.
We Have Eight Years To Prepare
The year 2030 is consistently mentioned by the United Nations, the IMF, the WEF and the rest of the cabal of globalist institutions as the final milestone for their Great Reset agenda.
If a global economic crisis is the catalyst as it appears to be, then several years would be required to let the collapse play out – along with the introduction of a “solution” to the problem. This means that the economic war will have to accelerate quickly going into the next year.
Today we are already seeing 40 year highs in inflation, along with considerable supply chain disruptions. Multiple globalist foundations are “predicting” food shortages around the world in the next 3-6 months. I believe the war itself will expand rapidly within a year to include China, and most of the damage will be done by the end of 2024. This will all depend on how fast exporters (mainly China) dump the dollar; the dollar dump will be the primary trigger.
A significant part of the WEF’s Great Reset agenda and the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights global digital currency initiative would require the end of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. This is a process the globalists have been talking about openly for some time. It’s not “conspiracy theory,” it is conspiracy reality. The IMF has argued on many occasions that the global currency framework must be “managed” by a centralized entity that can prevent national governments from exploiting currency trade for their own ends, and this includes digital currencies.
The stage is already set for this narrative. The U.S. will be painted as an example of why nationalism is a “path to disaster” and why no single nation should be trusted with so much power in the form of a world reserve currency. That kind of power tempts governments not only into excessive money creation power debt-financed spending sprees. Not only to print new money to pay for those old debts, thus debasing and degrading the dollar’s purchasing power worldwide (also known as inflation). But look at what the U.S. did to Russia – freezing bank accounts and canceling credit cards of the world’s 10th largest economy. The globalists would call this an abuse of power.
Throughout history, global reserve currencies have risen and fallen. From the Greek drachma in the 5th century B.C. to the British pound sterling (1700-1931), every single one has collapsed. And the resulting implosion of a reserve currency spreads like a tsunami, wrecking economies worldwide.
Thus, it is only “logical” that a global central authority with no national loyalties be put in control of an “international” reserve currency, right? Maybe a multi-currency-based basket system, or, perhaps, a single world currency… To prevent any future tragedies and abuses of power from ever happening again. Right?
Don’t be fooled.
It’s a complete con.
World war, whether economic or kinetic, and the death of the dollar as the global reserve currency is a perfect excuse for the “perfectly rational” introduction of an international financial oligarchy.
And, unlike its predecessors, this ruling council would operate right out in the sun for everyone to see, not in the shadows deep in the bowels of central banking cartels. Their authority would be “official,” and their control established as necessary, even vital for world peace.
This is the same thing that has happened after every major war or world war; the argument is made that national sovereignty was the cause and that nation states should not exist because when people are left to organize into groups they might form differing ideas on how to live, and differing ideas cause conflict.
After World War I, they introduced the League of Nations.
After World War II, they established the UN and the IMF.
And, after economic World War III, they will try to implement a program of one world currency and global economic governance(and dominance, as well).
Globalists claim it is better for there to be no sovereignty, no groups and no differing ideas. “We need one homogeneous global collective with a single hive mind,” goes the argument, “so that no conflict ever happens.”
Of course, they get to have their own group, and that group intends to garner all the benefits of the crisis and the power that will be derived from the panic.
I strongly recommend you prepare yourself, and your family, for the end of the U.S. dollar’s global reserve status. That means securing your financial future with what’s been called “money of last resort,” in other words, physical gold and silver. Physical precious metals are safe from hacking, immune to the collapse of the electrical grid and will very likely always be worth something, which is more than we can say for the vast majority of the fallen currencies. They’re a solid financial foundation to build your future on, whatever the future brings.
Take yourself off the dollar standard before the globalists do it for you – because once they come for your dollars, it will be too late.
In short, the “house of world order” will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like a great “booming, buzzing confusion,” to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.
When assessing Italy’s role in World War II, fake historians and real historians both agree on one thing: the adventures of Benito Mussolini cost Germany dearly. We’ll review the blunders and how they weighed on Germany shortly; but first, a piece of data which we just recently discovered at establishmentarian ForeignPolicy.com. The item, dated October 14, 2009, was titled Benito Mussolini: British Secret Agent. An excerpt:
“It is fall 1917 in Italy. World War I rages; in late October the German army gasses the Italians to defeat in the Battle of Caporetto. Hyperinflation and food shortages cripple the economy, and suddenly a large number of Italians don’t see the point of fighting anymore. At the same time, Lenin and the Bolsheviks seize St. Petersburg and the allies see that soon they will lose a key partner in the war. …. no more Russian-British alliance. And now Britain is looking at losing another ally, Italy.
Enter Sir Samuel Hoare, the man in Rome for British counter-intelligence. He is charged with keeping the Italian front fighting, and he quickly finds an ambitious newspaper editor to help him with the task, Benito Mussolini. This is the story Cambridge historian Peter Martland tells after uncovering documents proving the relationship.
Yes, MI5 paid Il Duce *£100 a week to keep the fighting spirit alive and well in Italy.
*Editor’s Note: Mamma Mia! That’s $8,000 weekly in today’s US Dollars, and that’s based on phony inflation numbers. So it’s probably about $20,000 weekly!
He did this through his newspaper as well as through his gang of armed thugs who bludgeoned peace protesters into staying home. …. Mussolini, 34 at the time, received the exorbitant salary for at least a year, according to Martland.
“I suspect that Mussolini, who was a noted womanizer, also spent a good deal of the money on his mistresses,” Martland said.
After Mussolini’s brief stint as a British agent, he rose to power and became the dictator of Italy. He met Hoare again when the two signed the Hoare-Lavalpact that gave Italy control of present-day Ethiopia and Eritrea.” (emphasis added)
* Editor’s Note: The British government soon withdrew the plan, and Hoare resigned. In early 1936 Italy began a new, larger advance into Ethiopia, using poison gas. In his memoirs, Hoare noted the killing of the Hoare–Laval Pact, pushed Italy closer to Germany.
So then, the post-World War I rise and rise of the young, ambitious Mussolini from womanizing 34-year-old newspaper editor working for British war aims, to appointed Prime Minister at age 39, to supreme dictator dubbed “Il Duce” (1925) at just 42, was “made in London.” Interesting, and frankly, borderline treasonous because it means that he worked to keep Italy in the war for Britain’s interests, even if he himself somehow believed he was acting in Italy’s. And what’s really astonishing is that this bit of data was not unearthed until 2009, only 3 years before your favorite historian here (who knew nothing about this until now!) had penned the first draft manuscript of The Bad War, in which Mussolini’s costly misadventures in WW 2 were reviewed.
Now, let’s fast forward to World War II and review how Mussolini’s blunders severely hindered Hitler’s war efforts and may have cost Germany an opportunity to win the war in 1941 or 1942, before the Soviets (with massive US weapons aid) could regroup and rebuild, and before the Americans could arrive and deploy to save the day for the ALL LIES. TIMELINE OF KEY EVENTS
May 1940: Neutral Italy, via its Ambassador to the UK, offers to broker a peace deal between Germany and the UK. Some in the British War Cabinet are interested in hearing a proposal. But Churchill, who surely must know that Mussolini had been made by British Intel, will have none of it.
June 5 – June 8, 1940: The Germans have already completed the heavy lifting of winning the land-based war in the West. The retreating British are high-tailing it out of Europe from Dunkirk. And France, much to Churchill’s consternation, is poised to negotiate a surrender as Marshal Phillipe Petain prepares to take power in France.
June 10, 1940: After having remained neutral, and just weeks after cordially dealing with the British, Mussolini — acting on his own initiative and independent of the German campaign — declares war on France and Great Britain. This stab-in-the-back invasion at the Alps (which pissed away the lives of 1,000 Italian soldiers just to conquer 13 small villages!) causes tremendous resentment among the already-defeated French. North Africa now opens up as a theater of war as Italy and Britain both have a presence there (as does defeated France).
July 3, 1940: The British attack the French naval base at Mers El Kébir — killing 1,300 French sailors and damaging / destroying 3 battleships and 2 destroyers. Churchill then claims that the pretext for this dastardly deed was to stop the victorious Germans from seizing the vessels of French navy.
Summer, 1940: The Italians struggle against the superior British in North Africa. Mussolini appeals to Hitler for help and that’s how Germany’s costly involvement with the Africa Korps under the leadership of Erwin Rommel began in 1941.
* Editor’s Note: In the alternative news & history community, Hitler is often criticized for having graciously allowed 300,000 British troops to safely evacuate from the shores of Dunkirk. The Germans would later have to fight these very same men in North Africa. In Hitler’s defense, he had no way of knowing that Mussolini, just one week after the end of the Dunkirk boat-lift, would suddenly and dishonorably abandon his neutrality and declare war against the already defeatedAllies — and then proceed to make such a mess in North Africa.
October, 1940: Against Hitler’s wishes, Mussolini, having already inflamed Africa and now occupying Albania, invades Greece in what will bog down into an even more disastrous military campaign. Mussolini’s war will cost the Italians 14,000 killed and 25,000 missing. In his private diary, one of his own generals recorded his disgust with Il Duce’s recklessness (here). Churchill uses this event as a pretext to offer military assistance to the Greeks — which would entail a renewed British presence on the European mainland via “the soft underbelly of Europe.”
* Editor’s Note: Mussolini had been wrongly informed that bribes paid to key Greek politicians and generals to not resist the Italian invasion would be enough to assure an easy conquest. Was British Intel feeding him the same “cakewalk” lie fled to aggressor Poland in 1939?
April, 1941: To block the British from setting up military action in Europe, Hitler — who had earlier sought to mediate a peace between Italy and Greece — has no choice but to bailout his Italian “ally” (again) and thus thwart the British advance by subduing Greece. As is the ongoing case in North Africa, valuable manpower and resources are thus diverted and valuable time is lost because Hitler’s preemptive invasion of the Soviet Union has to be postponed by two months. The lost months could have been enough to finish off the Soviet Union in 1941, before the winter pause arrived.
* Editor’s Note: The Germans were also forced to invade Yugoslavia at this time because British Intel had engineered a coup which installed an anti-German government.
June 22, 1941: Having lost two months and being spread thin in North Africa and southern Europe, Hitler launches the necessary invasion of the Soviet Union just in the nick of time. Operation Barbarossa is a stunning success for the Germans, but the lost time and resources enabled Stalin to barely hang on until the brutal winter of 1941 set in and stalled the advance. That allowed the Soviets to regroup and, with US help, rearm in 1942. Oh what have been had the Germans not lost all that time and all that firepower in 1941!
November, 1942: The Joint American & British Operation Torch launches in November 1942. Stalin now has the “Second Front” that he had been openly pleading for to relieve pressure on the Red Army by diverting German forces to North Africa. After a slow start by the allies, General George Patton is brought in to win North Africa. Now the Germans really have problems! Half the German transport planes that were needed to supply the encircled Axis forces at Stalingrad will eventually be tied up supplying the German and Italian armies in North Africa. And it was all because Mussolini picked a fight he couldn’t win against Britain in Africa.
Summer, 1943: After winning Africa, it was a short hop to Sicily and then onto the Italian mainland for the ALL LIES. It was through Italy, not Normandy (1944), that the Allies will establish their first true presence on the European mainland — through which they began tightening the noose on Germany from the South (and later, the West) — all while diverting German power away from the Russian front. Again, none of this happens if Mussolini had not declared war on France & Britain AFTER Germany had already secured Western Europe.
************** No doubt about it, Italian debacles in Africa and Greece came at a heavy cost for Germany to fix. In addition to the damage caused to the German war effort overtly, certain events that might have happened didn’t happen because of Mussolini. By abandoning Italy’s neutrality and attaching himself to Hitler’s hip the way he did, it made it politically impossible for Petain’s France (which was really done dirty by Mussolini) to join Germany in protecting Northern Europe from Allied invasion. Whatever French resentment the anti-communist French had toward Britain for its treacherous attack at Mers El Kébir, was offset by Italy’s stab-in-the-back just one month earlier. Hitler’s idea of rallying the North Africans and Arabs against the British colonialists could have worked as well, but not with poison gas man of Ethiopia attached to him. Oh what might have been if not for blundering Benito!
The disillusioning (for me) 2009 discovery of Mussolini having served as a paid agent of the British during World War I not only tells us A LOT about his ambition and his flawed character; but it leads us to this very logical and rational question: With this bit of dirt hanging over his head — this old skeleton hiding in his closet — might British Intelligence — partly with a carrot and partly with a stick — have reactivated the ambitious egoist which they made into “Il Duce?” Following is a plausible THEORY — for which there is no hard evidence (at this time) but for which proof may surface from the bowels of some dusty archive one day — just like the amazing find of 2009.
********************** Hitler controls the continent and the British are worried that Germany may invade their island if they refuse to make peace. Mussolini, through his ambassador to the UK, conveys a peace offer from Hitler, which Churchill will kill. The British then reactivate their old asset.
The Island of Britain needs a land presence somewhere in order to confront the Germans directly, and, more importantly, secure a staging ground for the inevitable entry of the United States into the war, and an invasion into the southern “soft underbelly of Europe.” To that end, the ego-maniac Mussolini (who was always jealous of Hitler and talked behind his back) is once again bought — not with money this time — but with the promise an expanded African Empire (paired with a disclosure of the bribes he accepted during World War I!).
This is very similar to how Tsarist Russia was induced into the pre-WWI British-French Alliance in 1907 — with the secretive empty promise of Constantinople (Istanbul) being returned to eastern Christendom’s control….or, more recently, how the mad MarshalEdvard Rydz Smigly of expansionist-minded Poland was manipulated into picking a fight with Germany in 1939. Standard British foreign policy for centuries!
The British know that a stab-in-the-back of France by Mussolini will make a French-German alliance impossible. His opening of hostilities against Britain in Africa is a fake war with real casualties on both sides; but what would the lives of enlisted men ever mean to men like Churchill and Mussolini anyway? They die for the cause of Italian Empire. The trap works and the Germans are drawn into the quicksand of Africa.
An Italian invasion of Greece is also needed to provide a pretext for diverting more German resources and manpower there; and to finally give the British a Europe-based land opening. “Benny, our dear old friend. Thanks for your help in Africa. As a show of our appreciation, we’ll let you take Greece and control the Mediterranean Sea. Our sources us tell us that the pathetic Greeks won’t even put up a fight, as long as you bribe them. You’ll be the second coming of Julius Caeser!” Mussolini — who is expecting a “cakewalk” in Greece (as Rydz Smigly had been led to believe with respect to attacking Germany in 1939) takes the bait and reaps the whirlwind.
And what about the subsequent British crippling of the Italian fleet at Taranto, later that same year; and the savage Allied bombardment and invasion of Italy; and the eventual toppling (July 1943); and brutal “dead-men-tell-no-tales” killing (1945) of Mussolini and his mistress by Allied-controlled “partisans?” Well, that’s the same type of “double cross” that the Brits did to the Tsar after they reneged on taking Constantinople; and the same “double cross” that they did to Rydz Smigly when they refused to help after he was tricked into starting the war in 1939, and then invaded by Germany from the West and the Soviet Union from the east. Standard British foreign policy — and there wasn’t a darn thing the already compromised fool could ever have done about it. British Intel had their ambitious ex-Italian newspaper man by “i cuglione” (the balls) all along.
********************** Far fetched? Before learning that newspaper man Mussolini accepted BIG MONEY from British Intel to propagandize his war weary countrymen into remaining immersed in the WW1 bloodbath (1.1 million dead Italians, military & civilian), I would probably not have entertained this idea. But in light of this new data, anything is possible. Legendary historian Edward Gibbon taught us: “History is indeed little more than the register of the crimes, follies and misfortunes of mankind.” — And indeed it is. In any event, both for his acceptance of British bribes and his stupendous “blundering” in World War II — we can no longer honor Il Duce, in spite of his anti-communism and other laudable domestic achievements.
Oh if only I could get unlimited access to the secret archives of British Intel!
Most regular readers of this channel know by now that the Sulzberger-Ochs Crime Family has — ever since buying up the Gentile-owned New York Times on the cheap (post “Panic of 1893”) in 1896 — used its status and influence as “the paper of record” to promote the Globalist agenda. What is less known is the fact that, owing to the generally conservative and patriotic political / cultural realities of decades gone by, the propagandists had to tread carefully as (((they))) went about their dirty business. Today, the Times, if it should so choose, could probably sell the existence of flying Unicorns to their dumb-as-dirt “educated” worshipers. Back in the day, they could not. For that reason, one will find many instances of “the other side of the story” pertaining to this or that issue being presented fully and truthfully — albeit offset by the more numerous poison pills.
The “Times Machines Archives” — which your generous donations help to pay for (hint hint) have proven to be very useful to your favorite Real Historian here when it comes to the never-ending search for all important original-source data. It’s really interesting to note how — when read with a “third eye” and combined with other data — the Jewish-owned New York Times seemed to confirm the version of events presented in the banned and “controversial” book, The Bad War.
Let’s have a critical look at the day-by-day headlines leading up to that fateful and avoidable September 1, 1939 breakout of World War 2, and also those of the first days after the shooting started. Any historian who would dare to merely present this “other side of the story” today — even with obligatory and pathetic “anti-Nazi” qualifiers — would be booted out of Quackademia quicker than Professor Christina Jeffrey was dumped as Congressional historian in 1995 for having, 10 years prior, suggested precisely that in her assessment of a history curriculum she had been tasked with reviewing. It’s amazing.
These sorts of surprising (by today’s standards, that is) headlines and articles about “the other side of the story” would continue up to and even a few months after Japan’s justifiable non-surprise attack upon the Pearl Harbor naval base in the US territory of Hawaii in 1941. Entire communiques issued by the German, Italian and Japanese Foreign Ministries, as well as statements by Hitler himself, were published — albeit not as frequently nor as well-placed as the dirty lies of Churchill and FDR. It wasn’t until US troops started to physically engage the “Axis” nations that the Times could show its true colors and descend into pure “Yellow Journalism.” But prior to that, the “paper of record” dumped a load of truth gems for anyone with the time, sense of smell and patience to dig them out.
A heartfelt “thank you” to all of “you guys” who — especially in the wake of the Amazon / Kindle ban — have kept me in a position to keep doing just that.
Sgt. Shoichi Yokoi kept on fighting for Japan for decades. His nephew told RT the story of his duty.
For the rest of the planet, World War II ended in 1945, but, for one foot soldier in the Imperial Japanese Army, it kept on going for another 28 years.
It was early evening on January 24, 1972, when two CHamoru hunters checking their fish traps in the Talo’fo’fo river that winds through the jungle on the Pacific island of Guam were startled by a wild-looking, barefooted man bursting out of the undergrowth in front of them.
Clearly as surprised as they were, the stranger flung aside the handmade fish trap he was carrying and attempted to seize one of the hunters’ rifles. But he was easily overwhelmed, subdued, and forced to accompany the pair back to their village, where one of the most extraordinary stories of the 20th century began to slowly unfold.
The man who appeared from nowhere in the evening gloom 50 years ago was Sergeant Shoichi Yokoi of the Imperial Japanese Army’s 38th Division. His last contact with the outside world had been 28 years previously, after US forces had regained control of the island from Japan, and, in the eight years prior to his encounter with the CHamoru men, he hadn’t spoken a single word to another human being. He was one of three Japanese hold-outs who had evaded capture, and the last to survive, hiding out in a cave and hunting by night.
Speaking from Osaka, where he is a university lecturer in modern history and human rights, Professor Hatashin dismissed the mythology of the soldier who would never surrender that has since been created around his uncle and, instead, painted a poignant picture of a man desperate to belong to a family and instilled with a deep sense of humanity towards his comrades.
When Hatashin was just six years old, only a few months after he had reappeared in Guam and then returned to Japan, Yokoi had married Mihoko, the boy’s aunt. Yokoi was 56 years old at the time and his bride was 44.
The sergeant’s extraordinary story began on 31 March, 1915, when he was born in the city of Nagoya, where he was raised by his mother and stepfather.
In 1941, at the age of 26, while he was working as an apprentice tailor, he was conscripted into the Imperial Army and sent to serve in the 29th Division in Manchuria, in northeastern China. He spent three years working in logistics, where he was loathed by his fellow infantrymen, who considered the logistics personnel ‘soft’ and a burden to ‘real’ fighting men.
Prof. Hatashin recalls: “The Imperial Japanese Army really treated logistics very poorly. There was a saying that logistics men were inferior to horses and bulls in terms of physical strength, and so they were below animals in terms of status.
“But because of the dire circumstances the army found itself in, with a shortage of soldiers towards the end of the war, especially in defending Guam, the Japanese administration decided that all the logistics men must be furnished with more ammunition and should fight as soldiers. All the other infantry found this very offensive, asking, ‘Why do we have to fight in the same ranks as logistics men? They’re inferior to us!’ So, there was a very bad relationship between the men.”
Despite its small population of 20,000, the island was of huge strategic importance. Japan seized it in December 1941, starting with an air attack on the capital, Hagåtña, just a few hours after its assault on the US fleet in Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, around 3,800 miles away.
In just three days, the Imperial Army overran the US possession, launching a massacre that left 600 dead and ensured the locals loathed the occupying force for the remainder of the occupation. This was the milieu into which Sgt. Yokoi landed in February 1944. He was immediately assigned to the supply corps of the Japanese naval garrison.
The Americans, outraged by the bombing of Pearl Harbor and shocked at being chased off Guam, had regrouped, however. In July that year, in a bid to recapture Guam, they launched one of the most devastating pre-assault naval bombardments of World War II. In the face of 55,000 US soldiers, the Japanese were soon defeated.
As the fighting raged around Sgt. Yokoi, he became separated from his platoon – he had been suffering terribly from diarrhea and had been in the latrine – and when he went to rejoin his men, they were nowhere to be found.
But he wasn’t alone. The Japanese ranks were in disarray, so Yokoi hooked up with a ragtag collective of nine soldiers under the command of an officer who had once been a Buddhist monk.
“The officer really wasn’t interested in fighting,” Prof. Hatashin said, “So, they looked for a way to build a raft and escape from Guam, where they hoped to be rescued by the Japanese Navy, or even the Americans.”
Although the loose-knit squadron continued to attack American positions under cover of darkness, the lack of food and disagreements over tactics led to a rift and the group disbanded, leaving Yokoi and two comrades, Shichi Mikio and Nakahata Satoshi, to tough it out as a trio.
Prof. Hatashin said that, at one point, the three men had attempted to surrender, but they had been met with such hostility from the people of Guam, who remembered the savagery of the invaders, that he and his two comrades had fled for their lives, vowing never to approach the locals again. So great was their fear of retribution that they stuck to that decision even in 1952, when they came across leaflets declaring that the war was over.
His new home consisted of an L-shaped hole seven feet below ground, about three feet high and nine feet long, supported by bamboo canes and accessed through a narrow, concealed opening via a bamboo ladder. The floors and walls were covered with bamboo, and he had even built an indoor toilet. He lived on shrimp, fish, eels, toads, rats and wild pig, foraging coconuts, breadfruit, and papayas from the surrounding jungle, and moving from his hideaway only at night to avoid detection.
While he existed separately from Mikio and Satoshi, they were not estranged, and when, sometime in 1964, he realized he hadn’t seen his neighbors for some time, he went to find them. Prof. Hitashin said his uncle had told him that, on entering their cave, he had struggled to find his way around in the dark, but his foot had struck an object that then rolled across the ground. When he managed to light a flame to investigate, he found it was a human skull. His comrades were dead. This crushing realization was as bitter a blow as any for Yokoi.
Despite later reports that they had died when their cave had been flooded, Prof. Hatashin said the devastation caused by Typhoon Karen, which struck Guam in 1962, had created long-lasting and severe food shortages that had made it difficult for the soldiers to forage or hunt for sustenance. The fact that their remains had been found in the cave led some to speculate that a buildup of carbon monoxide in their cramped underground home could have been the culprit.
For Yokoi, the loss of his companions must have hurt. Prof. Hatahsin said, “Throughout his life he had been terribly lonely, but it became clear that these two guys who lived in a hole in the ground in Guam had become his family. He was emotionally devastated, but somehow he convinced himself that he had a duty to report the death of the two guys back to Japan. He thought somebody must tell the government about this tragedy. In that way, he persuaded himself to survive.”
Yokoi’s mission was his salvation. It carried him through the final eight years of his isolation. He later admitted to his nephew that his sole purpose in staying alive was reporting the loss of his two comrades to his military superiors in order that their families could finally grieve. He made good on that promise to himself on his return to Japan, making his way to the homes of both soldiers to confirm the men had died.
While much has been made of the Imperial Japanese Army’s military code of conduct and its sense of honor that demanded death before surrender – which many have wrongly suggested was the reason for Sgt Yokoi’s determination to stand his ground – Prof. Hatashin said this was not a true reflection of the reality of war.
He said the Japanese officers on Guam captured by the Americans readily surrendered to save their own skin – something that had irritated his uncle no end when he finally returned home and learnt that some of the senior officers who had served in Guam had handed themselves over to the enemy, eventually returned to Japan, and lived a comfortable life thereafter among family and friends.
Prof. Hatatshin recalls: “Mr Yokoi himself said that the colonels who surrendered and lived happily back in Japan never wanted to see him back alive.” His courage in the face of adversity was in stark contrast to their own behavior and what many believed the uncompromising military leadership had expected of them.
After all, under the iron rule of Emperor Hirohito, surrender was not an option. Prof. Hatashin said the official line was that if Japan had been defeated in Guam, it must have been because every Japanese soldier fighting there had been killed in battle. A soldier of the Imperial Army did not surrender to his foe.
But that’s not what happened. “In reality, some people actually surrendered and returned to Japan,” he said. “Some were found suffering from lack of food or from illness by the Americans, and these people became prisoners.”
To fit the official narrative, and to avoid any uncomfortable questions about leaving men behind, any soldiers unaccounted for following the devastating battle on the island were simply pronounced dead, so Yokoi’s mother was told her son had perished.
“It was decided that every soldier had died in battle, even if they didn’t have any evidence for it,” said the professor.
While the unexpected reappearance of Sgt Yokoi in 1972, after 10,000 days, might have embarrassed the military hierarchy, on his return to Tokyo, he was welcomed as a hero by an adoring public who admired the humility of his first public words: “It is with much embarrassment that I return.”
It was that admission, viewed through the prism of Japan’s strict military code of conduct, that some believed revealed that Sgt. Yokoi somehow felt he had failed his nation by finally being captured. But the reality was very different. He was wracked by survivor’s guilt, Prof. Hatashin said. Nightmares pursued him. He told his nephew his sleep was haunted by the dead he’d left behind, who were pursuing him through the island jungle, pleading, “Please bring us back with you!”
Over time, jealousies also arose. Japanese casualties on Guam totaled around 18,000 and relatives of some of those who failed to return took against Sgt. Yokoi. He received anonymous calls from relatives late at night, demanding to know how he had survived for so long when their loved ones had perished. At one point, he received a cut-throat razor in the post, its implied suggestion being that he do with it what the Americans and years of isolation in the jungle of Guam had failed to achieve.
While he lived out his years peacefully in Japan giving lectures and interviews about his extraordinary life, the ex-soldier did later visit Guam with his new wife, at her insistence. She was curious to see the conditions in which her husband had survived for 28 years. Mihoko Yokoi has long survived her husband, and today, aged 94, lives in Kyoto.
Certainly, Sgt. Yokoi’s years of living literally hand to mouth paid off existentially, but, sadly, not financially. With no military pension, his later life was austere, but endurance was something he encouraged among his fellow Japanese, even writing a book titled, ‘You Need to Live with More Difficulties’.
Before he died of a heart attack in 1997, at the age of 82, Sgt. Yokoi’s final words to his nephew epitomized a man to whom family and loyalty were vitally important. Speaking of his uncle’s two comrades, whose bodies had long since been claimed by the jungle of Guam, Prof. Hitashin said, “He told me he wished the three of them could have returned together.”
More than thirty years have now passed since I in 1914 made my modest contribution as a volunteer in the first world war that was forced upon the Reich.
In these three decades I have been actuated solely by love and loyalty to my people in all my thoughts, acts, and life. They gave me the strength to make the most difficult decisions which have ever confronted mortal man. I have spent my time, my working strength, and my health in these three decades.
It is untrue that I or anyone else in Germany wanted the war in 1939. It was desired and instigated exclusively by those international statesmen who were either of Jewish descent or worked for Jewish interests.
I have made too many offers for the control and limitation of armaments, which posterity will not for all time be able to disregard for the responsibility for the outbreak of this war to be laid on me. I have further never wished that after the first fatal world war a second against England, or even against America, should break out. Centuries will pass away, but out of the ruins of our towns and monuments the hatred against those finally responsible whom we have to thank for everything, international Jewry and its helpers, will grow.
Three days before the outbreak of the German-Polish war I again proposed to the British ambassador in Berlin a solution to the German-Polish problem—similar to that in the case of the Saar district, under international control. This offer also cannot be denied. It was only rejected because the leading circles in English politics wanted the war, partly on account of the business hoped for and partly under influence of propaganda organized by international Jewry.
I have also made it quite plain that, if the nations of Europe are again to be regarded as mere shares to be bought and sold by these international conspirators in money and finance, then that race, Jewry, which is the real criminal of this murderous struggle, will be saddled with the responsibility. I further left no one in doubt that this time not only would millions of children of Europe’s Aryan peoples die of hunger, not only would millions of grown men suffer death, and not only hundreds of thousands of women and children be burnt and bombed to death in the towns, without the real criminal having to atone for this guilt, even if by more humane means.
After six years of war, which in spite of all setbacks will go down one day in history as the most glorious and valiant demonstration of a nation’s life purpose, I cannot forsake the city which is the capital of this Reich. As the forces are too small to make any further stand against the enemy attack at this place, and our resistance is gradually being weakened by men who are as deluded as they are lacking in initiative, I should like, by remaining in this town, to share my fate with those, the millions of others, who have also taken upon themselves to do so. Moreover I do not wish to fall into the hands of an enemy who requires a new spectacle organized by the Jews for the amusement of their hysterical masses.
I have decided therefore to remain in Berlin and there of my own free will to choose death at the moment when I believe the position of the Fuehrer and Chancellor itself can no longer be held.
I die with a happy heart, aware of the immeasurable deeds and achievements of our soldiers at the front, our women at home, the achievements of our farmers and workers and the work, unique in history, of our youth who bear my name.
That from the bottom of my heart I express my thanks to you all, is just as self-evident as my wish that you should, because of that, on no account give up the struggle but rather continue it against the enemies of the Fatherland, no matter where, true to the creed of a great Clausewitz. From the sacrifice of our soldiers and from my own unity with them unto death, will in any case spring up in the history of Germany, the seed of a radiant renaissance of the National-Socialist movement and thus of the realization of a true community of nations.
Many of the most courageous men and women have decided to unite their lives with mine until the very last I have begged and finally ordered them not to do this, but to take part in the further battle of the Nation. I beg the heads of the Armies, the Navy, and the Air Force to strengthen by all possible means the spirit of resistance of our soldiers in the National-Socialist sense, with special reference to the fact that also I myself, as founder and creator of this movement, have preferred death to cowardly abdication or even capitulation.
May it, at some future time, become part of the code of honor of the German officer—as is already the case in our Navy—that the surrender of a district or of a town is impossible, and that above all the leaders here must march ahead as shining examples, faithfully fulfilling their duty unto death.
Second Part of the Political Testament
Before my death I expel the former Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering from the party and deprive him of all rights which he may enjoy by virtue of the decree of June 29th, 1941; and also by virtue of my statement in the Reichstag on September 1st, 1939, I appoint in his place Grossadmiral Doenitz, President of the Reich and Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.
Before my death I expel the former Reichsfuehrer-SS and Minister of the Interior, Heinrich Himmler, from the party and from all offices of State. In his stead I appoint Gauleiter Karl Hanke as Reichsfuehrer-SS and Chief of the German Police, and Gauleiter Paul Giesler as Reich Minister of the Interior.
Goering and Himmler, quite apart from their disloyalty to my person, have done immeasurable harm to the country and the whole nation by secret negotiations with the enemy, which they conducted without my knowledge and against my wishes, and by illegally attempting to seize power in the State for themselves.
(Editor’s Note: Goering & Himmler naively believed that they could end the war by making peace with the United States and fighting the Soviets together instead.)
In order to give the German people a government composed of honorable men,—a government which will fulfill its pledge to continue the war by every means—I appoint the following members of the new Cabinet as leaders of the nation:
President of the Reich: DOENITZ Chancellor of the Reich: DR. GOEBBELS Party Minister: BORMANN Foreign Minister: SEYSS-INQUART
[Here follow fifteen others.]
Although a number of these men, such as Martin Bormann, Dr. Goebbels, etc., together with their wives, have joined me of their own free will and did not wish to leave the capital of the Reich under any circumstances, but were willing to perish with me here, I must nevertheless ask them to obey my request, and in this case set the interests of the nation above their own feelings. By their work and loyalty as comrades they will be just as close to me after death, as I hope that my spirit will linger among them and always go with them. Let them be hard, but never unjust, above all let them never allow fear to influence their actions, and set the honor of the nation above everything in the world. Finally, let them be conscious of the fact that our task, that of continuing the building of a National Socialist State, represents the work of the coming centuries, which places every single person under an obligation always to serve the common interest and to subordinate his own advantage to this end. I demand of all Germans, all National Socialists, men, women, and all the men of the Armed Forces, that they be faithful and obedient unto death to the new government and its President.
Above all I charge the leaders of the nation and those under them to scrupulous observance of the laws of race and to merciless opposition to the universal poisoner of all peoples, international Jewry. Given in Berlin, this 29th day of April 1945. 4:00 A.M.
US-NATO weapons of mass destruction are portrayed as instruments of peace. Mini-nukes are said to be “harmless to the surrounding civilian population”. Since the George W. Bush administration, pre-emptive nuclear war has been portrayed as a “humanitarian undertaking”.
While one can conceptualize the loss of life and destruction resulting from present-day wars including Iraq, Syria and Yemen, it is impossible to fully comprehend the devastation which might result from a Third World War, using “new technologies” and advanced weapons, until it occurs and becomes a reality. The US administration has endorsed nuclear war in the name of world peace. “Making the world safer” is the justification for launching a military operation which could potentially result in a nuclear holocaust.
US nuclear threats directed against Russia predate the Cold War.
They were first formulated at the height of World War II under the Manhattan Project when the US and the Soviet Union were allies.
The secret plan to bomb 66 Soviet cities was released in mid-September 1945, two weeks after the formal surrender of Japan.
Had the US decided NOT to develop nuclear weapons for use against the Soviet Union, the nuclear arms race would not have taken place.
Neither The Soviet Union nor the People’s Republic of China would have developed nuclear capabilities as a means of “Deterrence” against the US, had it not been for the Manhattan Project which was intent to annihilate the Soviet Union.
Flash Forward to 2021:
President Joe Biden does not have the foggiest idea as to the consequences of nuclear war.
Massive amounts of money have been allocated by the Biden Administration to feed the weapons industry including the Pentagons’ 1.3 trillion dollar nuclear weapons program first launched under Obama.
Humanity is at a dangerous crossroads. Nuclear war has become a multi-billion dollar undertaking, which fills the pockets of US defense contractors. What is at stake is the outright “privatization of nuclear war”.
The use of nuclear weapons against Russia is currently on the drawing board of the Pentagon. US-NATO war games are being carried out on Russia’s doorstep. A first strike preemptive nuclear attack on Russia is not excluded.
In the words of Fidel Castro on October 15, 2010
“In a nuclear war the “collateral damage” would be the life of all humanity.
Let us have the courage to proclaim that all nuclear or conventional weapons, everything that is used to make war, must disappear!” (Fidel Castro Ruz, conversations with the author, October 2010) Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research, December 2021
“Wipe the Soviet Union Off the Map”, 204 Atomic Bombs against 66 Major Cities, US Nuclear Attack against USSR Planned During World War II
All major cities of the Soviet Union were included in the list of 66 “strategic” targets. The tables below categorize each city in terms of area in square miles and the corresponding number of atomic bombs required to annihilate and kill the inhabitants of selected urban areas.
Six atomic bombs were to be used to destroy each of the larger cities including Moscow, Leningrad, Tashkent, Kiev, Kharkov, Odessa.
The Pentagon estimated that a total of 204 atomic bombs would be required to “Wipe the Soviet Union off the Map”. The targets for a nuclear attack consisted of sixty-six major cities.
To undertake this operation the “optimum” number of bombs required was of the order of 466 (see document below)
One single atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima resulted in the immediate death of 100,000 people in the first seven seconds. Imagine what would have happened if 204 atomic bombs had been dropped on major cities of the Soviet Union as outlined in a secret U.S. plan formulated during the Second World War.
The document outlining this diabolical military agenda had been released in September 1945, barely one month after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (6 and 9 August, 1945) and two years before the onset of the Cold War (1947).
The secret plan dated September 15, 1945 (two weeks after the surrender of Japan on September 2, 1945 aboard the USS Missouri, see image below) , however, had been formulated at an earlier period, namely at the height of World War II, at a time when America and the Soviet Union were close allies.
It is worth noting that Stalin was first informed through official channels by Harry Truman of the infamous Manhattan Project at the Potsdam Conference on July 24, 1945, barely two weeks before the attack on Hiroshima.
The Manhattan project was launched in 1939, two years prior to America’s entry into World War II in December 1941. The Kremlin was fully aware of the secret Manhattan project as early as 1942.
Were the August 1945 Hiroshima and Nagasaki attacks used by the Pentagon to evaluate the viability of a much larger attack on the Soviet Union consisting of more than 204 atomic bombs? The key documents to bomb 66 cities of the Soviet Union (15 September 1945) were finalized 5-6 weeks after the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings (6, 9 August 1945):
“On September 15, 1945 — just under two weeks after the formal surrender of Japan and the end of World War II — Norstad sent a copy of the estimate to General Leslie Groves, still the head of the Manhattan Project, and the guy who, for the short term anyway, would be in charge of producing whatever bombs the USAAF might want. As you might guess, the classification on this document was high: “TOP SECRET LIMITED,” which was about as high as it went during World War II. (Alex Wellerstein, The First Atomic Stockpile Requirements (September 1945)
The Kremlin was aware of the 1945 plan to bomb sixty-six Soviet cities.
The documents confirm that the US was involved in the “planning of genocide” against the Soviet Union.
Let’s cut to the chase. How many bombs did the USAAF request of the atomic general, when there were maybe one, maybe two bombs worth of fissile material on hand? At a minimum they wanted 123. Ideally, they’d like 466. This is just a little over a month after the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Of course, in true bureaucratic fashion, they provided a handy-dandy chart (Alex Wellerstein, op. cit)
Central to our understanding of the Cold War which started (officially) in 1947, Washington’s September 1945 plan to bomb 66 cities into smithereens played a key role in triggering the nuclear arms race.
The Soviet Union was threatened and developed its own atomic bomb in 1949 in response to 1942 Soviet intelligence reports on the Manhattan Project.
While the Kremlin knew about these plans to “Wipe out” the USSR, the broader public was not informed because the September 1945 documents were of course classified.
Today, neither the September 1945 plan to blow up the Soviet Union nor the underlying cause of the nuclear arms race are acknowledged. The Western media has largely focussed its attention on the Cold War US-USSR confrontation. The plan to annihilate the Soviet Union dating back to World War II and the infamous Manhattan project are not mentioned.
Washington’s Cold War nuclear plans are invariably presented in response to so-called Soviet threats, when in fact it was the U.S. plan released in September 1945 (formulated at an earlier period at the height of World War II) to wipe out the Soviet which motivated Moscow to develop its nuclear weapons capabilities.
The assessment of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists mistakenly blamed and continue to blame the Soviet Union for having launched the nuclear arms race in 1949, four years after the release of the September 1945 US Secret Plan to target 66 major Soviet cities with 204 nuclear bombs:
“1949: The Soviet Union denies it, but in the fall, President Harry Truman tells the American public that the Soviets tested their first nuclear device, officially starting the arms race. “We do not advise Americans that doomsday is near and that they can expect atomic bombs to start falling on their heads a month or year from now,” the Bulletin explains. “But we think they have reason to be deeply alarmed and to be prepared for grave decisions.” (Timeline of the Doomsday Clock, Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, 2017)
IMPORTANT: Had the US decided NOT to develop nuclear weapons for use against the Soviet Union, the nuclear arms race would not have taken place. Neither The Soviet Union nor the People’s Republic of China would have developed nuclear capabilities as a means of “Deterrence” agains the US which had already formulated plans to annihilate the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union lost 26 million people during World War II. The Cold War List of 1200 Targeted Cities: This initial 1945 list of sixty-six cities was updated in the course of the Cold War (1956) to include some 1200 cities in the USSR and the Soviet block countries of Eastern Europe (see declassified documents below). The bombs slated for use were more powerful in terms of explosive capacity than those dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Source: National Security Archive
“According to the 1956 Plan, H-Bombs were to be Used Against Priority “Air Power” Targets in the Soviet Union, China, and Eastern Europe. Major Cities in the Soviet Bloc, Including East Berlin, Were High Priorities in “Systematic Destruction” for Atomic Bombings.

Washington, D.C., December 22, 2015 – The SAC [Strategic Air Command] Atomic Weapons Requirements Study for 1959, produced in June 1956 and published today for the first time by the National Security Archive www.nsarchive.org, provides the most comprehensive and detailed list of nuclear targets and target systems that has ever been declassified. As far as can be told, no comparable document has ever been declassified for any period of Cold War history. The SAC study includes chilling details. According to its authors, their target priorities and nuclear bombing tactics would expose nearby civilians and “friendly forces and people” to high levels of deadly radioactive fallout. Moreover, the authors developed a plan for the “systematic destruction” of Soviet bloc urban-industrial targets that specifically and explicitly targeted “population” in all cities, including Beijing, Moscow, Leningrad, East Berlin, and Warsaw. Purposefully targeting civilian populations as such directly conflicted with the international norms of the day, which prohibited attacks on people per se (as opposed to military installations with civilians nearby).National Security Archive Electronic Briefing Book No. 538, December 2015 List of Cities

What distinguishes the October 1962 Missile Crisis to Today’s realities:
1. Today’s president Joe Biden does not have the foggiest idea as to the consequences of nuclear war.
2, Communication today between the White House and the Kremlin is at an all time low. In contrast, in October 1962, the leaders on both sides, namely John F. Kennedy and Nikita S. Khrushchev were accutely aware of the dangers of nuclear annihilation. They collaborated with a view to avoiding the unthinkable.
3. The nuclear doctrine was entirely different during the Cold War. Both Washington and Moscow understood the realities of mutually assured destruction. Today, tactical nuclear weapons with an explosive capacity (yield) of one third to six times a Hiroshima bomb are categorized by the Pentagon as “harmless to civilians because the explosion is underground”.
4. A one trillion ++ nuclear weapons program, first launched under Obama, is ongoing.
5. Today’s thermonuclear bombs are more than 100 times more powerful and destructive than a Hiroshima bomb. Both the US and Russia have several thousand nuclear weapons deployed.
Moreover, an all out war against China is currently on the drawing board of the Pentagon as outlined by a RAND Corporation Report commissioned by the US Army
U.S Foreign Policy Insanity
There is a long history of US political insanity geared towards providing a human face to U.S. crimes against humanity.
On August 9, 1945, on the day the second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, president Truman (image right), in a radio address to the American people, concluded that God is on the side of America with regard to the use of nuclear weapons and that
“He May guide us to use it [atomic bomb] in His ways and His purposes”.
According to Truman: God is with us, he will decide if and when to use the bomb:
[We must] prepare plans for the future control of this bomb. I shall ask the Congress to cooperate to the end that its production and use be controlled, and that its power be made an overwhelming influence towards world peace.
We must constitute ourselves trustees of this new force–to prevent its misuse, and to turn it into the channels of service to mankind.
It is an awful responsibility which has come to us.
We thank God that it [nuclear weapons] has come to us, instead of to our enemies; and we pray that He may guide us to use it [nuclear weapons] in His ways and for His purposes” (emphasis added)
Japan tells a different story than the one spun by FDR and the Fake News — a story which (surprisingly) was printed once on page 2 of The New York Times on December 8, 1941, and has since disappeared into the black memory hole of forbidden history.
DECEMBER 7, 1941
PEARL HARBOR 80th ANNIVERSARY EDITORIAL
The Truth About the Pearl Harbor Attack
1941: Globalist agents FDR and Churchill want desperately to drag the United States into World War II. This becomes all the more urgent after Hitler had launched “Operation Barbarossa” in June of the same year — a justified preemptive invasion of the Soviet Union which now threatens to overthrow Stalin and his evil Bolshevik regime in Moscow.
Knowing that American entry into the war would endanger Germany’s war efforts, Hitler ignores repeated U.S. provocations of Germany. To further discourage U.S. entry into the war, Germany, Italy, and Japan sign on to a mutual defense pact in September of 1940- The Tripartite Pact. War against one means war with all three.
Ironically, the Tripartite Pact will have the unintended effect of facilitating FDR’s treasonous scheme to embroil the U.S. into the conflict. As a “backdoor” to the European conflict (which Germany was winning) FDR and Churchill intensify their instigation of Japan. When the aggressive moves become too much for Japan to bear (oil embargo, closure of Panama Canal to Japanese shipping, U.S. battleships cruising through Japanese waters, direct assistance to the Chinese aggressors etc.) Japan decides to make its first direct move against the U.S. aggressor — by attacking Pearl Harbor (the U.S. naval base in the territory of Hawaii) on December 7, 1941 ….exactly as FDR had intended! As a result of the attack, the powerful pro-peace movement in America is silenced in an instant.
Lets remember that only the old obsolete warships were in Hawaii, the newer more powerful American warships were at Midway.
In the ensuing days, war declarations between the Tripartite allies and the US/UK alliance were exchanged.
Japan tells a different story than the one spun by FDR and the Fake News — a story which (surprisingly) was printed once on page 2 of The New York Times on December 8, 1941, and has since disappeared into the black memory hole of forbidden history. But I’m pleased to bring you the actual text of Emperor Hirohito‘s War Declaration — a message which rings far truer than the lies of FDR and company.
TEXT OF HIROHITO’S WAR DECLARATION
By the grace of heaven, Emperor of Japan, seated on the throne occupied by the same dynasty from time immemorial, enjoin upon ye, our loyal and brave subjects:
We hereby declare war upon the United States of America and the British Empire. The men and officers of our Army and Navy shall do their utmost in prosecuting the war. Our public servants of various departments shall perform faithfully and diligently their respective duties; the entire nation with a united will shall mobilize their total strength so that nothing will miscarry in the attainment of our war aims.
To ensure the stability of East Asia, and to contribute to world peace is the farsighted policy which was formulated by our great illustrious Imperial Grandsire and our Great Imperial Sire succeeding him and which we lay constantly to heart. To cultivate friendship among nations and to enjoy prosperity in common with all nations, has always been the guiding principle of our Empire’s foreign policy. It has truly been unavoidable and far from our wishes that our Empire has been brought to cross swords with America and Britain. More than four years have passed since China, failing to comprehend the true intentions of our Empire, and recklessly courting trouble, disturbed the peace of East Asia and compelled our Empire to take up arms. Although there has been reestablished the National Government of China, with which Japan had effected neighborly intercourse and cooperation, the regime which has survived in Chungking, relying upon American and British protection, still continues its fratricidal opposition.
Eager for the realization of their inordinate ambition to dominate the Orient, both America and Britain, giving support to the Chungking regime, have aggravated the disturbances in East Asia. Moreover these two powers, inducing other countries to follow suit, increased military preparations on all sides of our Empire to challenge us. They have obstructed by every means our peaceful commerce and finally resorted to a direct severance of economic relations, menacing greatly the existence of our Empire.
Patiently have we waited and long have we endured, in the hope that our Government might retrieve the situation in peace. But our adversaries, showing not the least spirit of conciliation, have unduly delayed a settlement; and in the meantime they have intensified the economic and political pressure to compel our Empire to submission. This trend of affairs, would, if left unchecked, not only nullify our Empire’s efforts of many years for the sake of the stabilization of East Asia, but also endanger the very existence of our nation. The situation being such as it is, our Empire, for its existence and self defense has no other recourse but to appeal to arms and to crush every obstacle in its path.
The hallowed spirits of our Imperial Ancestors, guarding us from above, we rely upon the loyalty and courage of our subjects in the confident expectation that the task bequeathed by our forefathers will be carried forward, and that the sources of evil will be speedily eradicated, and an enduring peace be established in East Asia, preserving thereby the glory of our Empire.”
SECRETARY HARRY STIMSON’S CONFESSION
“We face the delicate question of the diplomatic fencing to be done so as to be sure Japan is put into the wrong and makes the first bad move. … The question was how we should maneuver them into the position of firing the first shot.” *** “When the news first came that Japan had attacked us my first feeling was of relief that … a crisis had come in a way which would unite all our people. This continued to be my dominant feeling in spite of the news of catastrophes which quickly developed.”
From the diary of Henry Stimson, FDR’s Secretary of War
