- To our friends around the world:
- There was another Holocaust Heresy Trial
session yesterday, but I don't have comprehensive information yet. I
will forward it as soon as it arrives.
- Meanwhile, another Zundel Letter, sent
to a young friend in Texas:
- May 25, 2006,
- Dear Curtis,
- I received another letter of yours, the
one dated May 10, 2006, so it seems that the mail flow is starting again.
Whatever the reasons, this censorship situation with my mail has certainly
given me new insights into how the German system functions and the attitude
these people have towards basic human rights and human decency. One cannot
divorce all this from the actual historical facts, which are no secret
to my persecutors, domestically or internationally!
- This current "world disorder,"
for that is what it is, is morphing into something like a bunch of writhing,
intertwined snakes. It seems there are too many agendas of every kind
- religious, social, political, economic, military - a veritable geopolitical,
geostrategic free-for-all! A nightmare! Really!
- The Americans and the lobbies that direct
this wobbling giant are so interconnected and intertwined that it will
take an Alexander The Great cutting the Gordian Knot to bring some semblance
of order back into the affairs of the world.
- The New Rome is writhing - not so much
rising. George Washington's farewell address was and is being ignored at
the peril of not only America, but the rest of the world as well. The Neo-Cons
have enough strength left to pulverize the infrastructure of anyone challenging
their mad, helter-skelter dash for the last remaining oil reserves of the
world. Many European experts and commentators are far more outspoken about
the real underlying reasons for all this disquiet than they once were.
Some Germans are referring to our current political situation as the "Dance
on the Volcano."
- Washington's labyrinthine political struggles
are being referred to over here as "The Big Swamp." Der Spiegel,
Germany's largest magazine reported that Bush gave the okay after 9-11
to monitor and record billions of phone calls, faxes and emails - not just
overseas calls, but domestic calls as well. The NSA, AT&T, Bell South
and others were only too eager to violate the Constitutional Rights of
millions of Americans by supplying their customers data to the ever growing
and ever more invasive Federal Government. Thus it seems dictatorship has
arrived by stealth and was voted in - just as I have said for years it
would be in the West. It took no genius to see it coming, only a bit of
political and historical knowledge, something in short supply these days.
If I, the peasant, could see it coming - you can bet millions of far better
educated and more highly placed [persons] could see this also, but they
did not have the honesty, or the courage, to call a spade a spade.
- Of course that is why they are free,
and I am in prison!
- I have previously mentioned to you a
very informative book by Michael Ruppert entitled Crossing the Rubicon.
I think it's one of the most exhaustive studies [over 900 footnotes] of
9-11 available today. That book is an absolute must for understanding the
political situation today. Without having the basic understanding available
within its pages would be like embarking on a long road trip without a
map. Only a fool would do that!
- There are of course details which give
a local twist and flavor to this understanding. Some of these details
can give one an edge. The New York Times has an international edition,
which is printed in English and inserted as a supplement in major European
papers. The Times recently had one of those whining articles about the
declining capability of U.S. Intelligence, especially within the CIA, which
reminded me of the melt-down experienced by the Stasi and KGB in the late
1980s when they were overwhelmed by the amount of intelligence they had.
Technology had come to the point where acquiring the intelligence was relatively
easy, but they had so much of it; they couldn't process it in a meaningful
way. They simply experienced info gridlock. Because of the advances in
technology, they trained fewer and fewer agents and translators, relying
instead on technology, which could not analyze the data effectively. We've
seen this today, with the avalanche of lies and false reports supplied
by Chalabi and the Mossad; the "stove piping" of special interests,
directly to Cheney, Rumsfeld and even Powell. Naturally enough, this allowed
the Bush White House to accomplish what it had set out to do from the beginning
- to lie America and the West into a disastrous was in Iraq and eventually
Iran and some of the "-stan" countries up north. These Central
Asian countries are governed by warlords, tribal chiefs, and warring clans
- these people have held sway for centuries. Into this God-forsaken neighborhood
the foolish American Manifest Destiny hillbilly administration has descended
in their C5 Galaxys, and C130s, until these planes are being worn out from
metal fatigue and too many flight hours. The active United States military
leadership knows all too well about the worn-out state of their air transport
command; it's almost like the ghost of Goering's braggadoccio, when he
claimed that he could supply Stalingrad from the air.
- Well guess what? The only way to get
into these godforsaken countries in central Asia is by air, over territory
that is anything but neutral, never mind allied and friendly. That's what
amazes me most about this situation America has gotten itself into. It
has allowed itself to be sucked into this quagmire despite the fact that
the best minds in government knew the British had failed in Afghanistan,
as had the modern military of the Soviet Union. Both had bled themselves
white and so shall Uncle Sam. It can't be mitigated, because that's just
the way it is in Central Asia and Afghanistan. Chaos!
- The American military is being overstretched,
ove-used and, like their aircraft, worn out in a protracted exercise in
futility. How much of this has happened by design of the Kremlin remains
to be seen. One thing is certain: the Russian Army and Air Force have
a distinct advantage over their American counterparts - shorter supply
lines. Furthermore, these supply lines are by rail and road rather than
via air. Thus the Russians can supply their forces much more effectively
and cheaply than can the United States. It appears that Capitalism is exhausting
itself, chasing after the energy rainbow thousands of miles from home,
wasting tens of billions on its failed venture when that money would have
been better spent investing in alternative energy sources, new engines,
new modes of transportation, etc. They exhausted themselves on Empire Building
and making "the neighborhood safe" for their trusted little ally
in the Mideast - an ally without oil reserves, without any significant
economic potential, without any assets - only liabilities!
- Meanwhile the rest of the world isn't
standing still. Russia, Iran and Saudi Arabia are raking in huge profits.
Now they'll utilize those enormous profits to build up, to modernize, capitalize,
to pay off their international debt, decades ahead of rescheduling, and
by so doing, saving billions upon billions in interest payments. Of course
the end result could be economic independence, thus throwing the American
hegemon off their backs once and for all.
- Russia has in fact quadrupled the price
of its natural gas to its customers over the last two years. Oil prices
are at their highest ever. Since production costs are only nominally higher
than they were two years ago, Iran, Iraq, Russia, Saudi Arabia etc. get
far more profit per barrel than they ever have before. With their coffers
bulging, flush with petro-dollars, they can afford to get "testy,"
and throw their weight around - Iran and Russia are typical examples, China,
India and Western Europe are the real victims of this simmering crisis
and will continue to suffer for some time to come.
- The Poles want an "energy NATO."
They want to be able to rain paratroopers and other mobile forces down
on the oil and gas fields and pipelines of Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan,
Iran and Iraq as well as Libya, Morocco, Algeria, etc. The German Interior
Minister wants the German Constitution amended to allow the Bundeswehr
to be used to "protect," Germany's energy supply and suppliers.
Of course this all means: "Don't mess with our energy supply - or
- Now, is that not an amazing development?
The need for oil was what really dictated Germany's WWII drive into the
Ploesti oil fields in Romania, and the wild thrust to Baku, the heartland
of the Soviet Union's oil production at the time. Energy and resource independence
was always at the heart of Germany's WWII expansion drive, from the oil
fields on Lake Balaton in Hungary to the iron ore of Norway and Sweden
to the grain basket in the Ukraine and the vast timber reserves in the
- Many people look with suspicion at the
developing Russia-Chinese relationship, but Russia's population is crashing
more severely than even Germany's. According to some articles I have read
of late, thirty thousand Russian villages have been abandoned, as the traditional
peasant populations are leaving for the ever-expanding cities. The immediate
result can be seen in the declining population due to lack of living space.
Two and three room apartments don't end themselves to rearing large families.
- Into this emptying Russian demographic
will move the land-hungry-Asiatic hordes, not altogether unlike what is
happening with the Mexican population today. Russia is undergoing a conquest
by "loin and womb." It will inevitably cede ever larger tracts
of land to the Chinese, as their population continues to grow. This, of
course, will change the entire makeup of Russia, just as certainly as America's
composition will forever change as a result of its absorbing twenty million
- New realities are developing all around
us. New powers like China and India are going to challenge the Old Order.
To these people, quaint concepts like "guilt trips" and "guilt
complexes" will mean nothing; they are blunt instruments Taboos,
which mean nothing to them, will receive nothing but ridicule - and rightly
- A new world is dawning - the old order
is dying right before our very eyes.
- All the best from prison.
