So, Remembrance Sunday is upon us. As a consequence, every shopping trip begins and ends with a barrage of Propaganda and Guilt. It is impossible to avoid the British Legion or their Poppies. The problem is. I don’t support the troops.
This opinion is generally met with one of two attitudes. The first is the knee-jerk “have some respect” line. Respect for what exactly…? I view members of the armed forces as misguided at best, but let’s be honest, anyone who is paid to fight in armed conflicts is a Mercenary. Troops are nothing but cannon fodder to the elite, used to further agendas, steal resources and secure deals for corporations. To quote Henry Kissinger –
“Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”
This explains the need for charities such as the British Legion and Help For Heroes. If the Armed Forces were valued, they would be offered proper health care and good pensions. But no, the public are expected to pay for all of that. The second reaction, usually accompanied by a begrudging admittance that the current conflicts fall into a grey area, is the conviction that they “Died for our freedoms”, or that “We’d all be talking German” if it wasn’t for our brave boys. Well, is this true?
On the face of it, World War 1 appears to be a conflict sparked by a Murder, a slew of complicated pacts and treaties and the threat of an ever-strengthening German Empire. Well, at least some of that is true. The German Empire was expanding and growing stronger. They had become a successful, industrialised nation, mainly on the back of their steel industry. They were looking to build a new fleet of ships and were laying railway track at a great rate. Britain on the other hand, following a costly campaign in South Africa against the Boer Republics (a conflict, incidentally, that was all about securing gold supplies and saw the British invention of Concentration Camps), were in near Financial ruin. Desperate to maintain their hold on the global shipping trade and a dwindling Empire that was, by that time, coughing up blood. Add to this the advent of the combustion engine and the very beginning of the age of Oil and it’s clear that Britain and Germany were always on a collision course.
Britain had converted their coal-powered Naval Fleet to Oil and was busy setting up one-sided deals to secure the newly found black gold for her corporations. All well and good, but Germany had built a Berlin to Baghdad railway and had signed treaties with Turkey in an attempt to guarantee its own supply of Oil. WW1 broke out in late July 1914, by November British forces had invaded Southern Mesopotamia (now Iraq), and conquered Basra. WW1 was not about the freedoms of the British people, it was about British Empire and British Corporations.

So, World War 2. Hitler was a mad man who would see the entire World engulfed by the Third Reich and every last Jew gassed. Well... Not quite. Following the Balfour Declaration of November 1917, which saw the promise of a Jewish Homeland in Palestine, Marxist (read Zionist) Trade Union leaders called disruptive strikes in Germany and the Jewish owned press destroyed German morale. This more or less killed the Spring Offensive and spelled the end of WW1 for the Germans. After their defeat the Germans were hit with massive War Reparations that would devastate the German Economy for years to come. Germany is carved up to create Poland, Czechoslovakia and Austria and sees all of her African and European resources stripped away and shared amongst the Allied victors. It is at this time that Hitler begins to find his political feet. Hitler’s rise to power comes against a back drop of Communist and Zionist atrocities across the globe and crushing economic hardship in Germany. In January 1923 France invades Germany’s Ruhr region after it falls behind on Reparations Payments. By mid-1923 Germany’s Hyper-Inflation has wiped out the middle classes and Hitler attempts a Coup in Munich. He fails and is sentenced to eight months in prison where he writes Mein Kampf (My Struggle). According to Hitler there is a Global Conspiracy directed by Jewish Bankers. He accuses the elite Marxist Jews in Germany of controlling newspapers and banking, fermenting wars, and corrupting the art, culture and morality of Europe.
As soon as Hitler takes control of Germany in 1933, Jewish leaders declare war and set about economic destruction. They stage Protest Rallies and stoke up hatred of Germany through their control of the press. By way of retaliation, Hitler bans the Communist Party in Germany, wrestles control of the Central Bank away from the Warburg/Rothschild Bankers and issues debt free currency. He pulls out of the League of Nations and refuses to make any more Reparations Payments. By 1936 the German economic recovery is in full swing and they host the Olympics. In July 1937 Japan and China go to War, by November Germany has signed an Anti-Communist defence pact with Japan. Soon after, Italy and a few other Nations also join. In March 1938 Austria is accepted into the German Reich, this is a popular move among the Austrian people, though the Government of the day oppose it. The Sudetenland soon follows and Germany signs a pact of non-aggression with the Soviet Union in August 1939.
Disputes over Danzig and the Polish Corridor, exasperated by terrorist attacks on the German radio station in Silesia eventually lead to France and Britain declaring War on Germany. History is written by the Victors and it is vital that the Propaganda continues to this day. War is fought for corporations, for greed and for the dark suits in the shadow government.
We must remember this.
