- Winston Churchill was knighted after World War 2 and
buried in Westminster Abbey, perhaps the highest tribute that could be
paid to him, while Adolf Hitler has been accorded the status of perhaps
the most evil politician in human history.
- WINSTON CHURCHILL in 1940
- "When I look around to see how we can win the war
I see that there is only one sure path. We have no Continental army which
can defeat the German military power.. Should [Hitler].. not try invasion
[of Britain].. there is one thing that will bring him back and bring him
down, and that is an absolutely devastating, exterminating attack by very
heavy bombers from this country upon the Nazi homeland. We must be able
to overwhelm them by this means, without which I do not see a way through.
We cannot accept any aim lower than air mastery. When can it be obtained?"
[Extract from Winston S Churchill 'The Second World War' (Volume 2 Their
Finest Hour Appendix A), Memo from Prime Minister to Minister of Aircraft
Production, 8.July 1940].
- ADOLF HITLER in 1940
- Britain and France declared war on Germany, not the other
way around. Hitler wanted peace with Britain, as the German generals admitted
(Basil Liddell Hart, The Other Side of the Hill 1948, Pan Books 1983) with
regard to the so-called Halt Order at Dunkirk (24 May 1940), where Hitler
had the opportunity to capture the entire British Army, but chose not to.
Liddell Hart, one of Britain,s most respected military historians, quotes
the German General von Blumentritt with regard to this Halt Order:
- "He (Hitler) then astonished us by speaking with
admiration of the British Empire, of the necessity for its existence, and
of the civilization that Britain had brought into the world. He remarked,
with a shrug of the shoulders, that the creation of its Empire had been
achieved by means that were often harsh, but where there is planing, there
are shavings flying,. He compared the British Empire with the Catholic
Church saying they were both essential elements of stability in the world.
He said that all he wanted from Britain was that she should acknowledge
Germany,s position on the Continent. The return of Germany,s colonies would
be desirable but not essential, and he would even offer to support Britain
with troops if she should be involved in difficulties anywhere.."
- According to Liddell Hart, "At the time we believed
that the repulse of the Luftwaffe in the 'Battle over Britain' had saved
her. That is only part of the explanation, the last part of it. The original
cause, which goes much deeper, is that Hitler did not want to conquer England.
He took little interest in the invasion preparations, and for weeks did
nothing to spur them on; then, after a brief impulse to invade, he veered
around again and suspended the preparations. He was preparing, instead,
to invade Russia" (p140).
- David Irving in the foreword to his book The Warpath
(1978) refers to "the discovery.. that at no time did this man (Hitler)
pose or intend a real threat to Britain or the Empire."
- A major awkwardness concerning Churchill's conduct of
the war lies in the secret British policy of so-called 'area bombing',
adopted early in 1942 and outlined by (Lord) CP Snow in the 1960 Godkin
Lectures at Harvard University (published in his book Science and Government,
Oxford University Press 1961). Snow had an insider's view of the development
of this policy. He outlines how the sinister Professor FA Lindemann (later
to become Lord Cherwell, Churchill's chief scientific adviser), persuaded
the British Cabinet to adopt the policy of directing bombing campaigns
primarily against German working-class housing. "Middle-class houses
have too much space around them, and so are bound to waste bombs; factories
and "military objectives" had long since been forgotten, except
in official bulletins, since they were much too difficult to find and hit"
(p 48). Snow asks, "What will people of the future think of us? Will
they say...we were wolves with the minds of men? Will they think that we
had resigned our humanity? They will have the right." (p 49).
- Fortunately, Snow needn't have worried. There have been
and remain such powerful vested interests committed to preserving the myths
of World War II that even the history departments of universities have
in most cases assisted with the cover-up.
- The respected British military historian Martin Middlebrook
says, "In some ways, Area Bombing was a three-year period of deceit
practiced upon the British public and on world opinion. It was felt to
be necessary that the exact nature of R.A.F. bombing should not be revealed.
It could not be concealed that German cities were being hit hard, and that
residential areas in those cities were receiving many of the bombs, but
the impression was usually given that industry was the main target and
that any bombing of workers, housing areas was an unavoidable necessity.
Charges of 'indiscriminate bombing' were consistently denied."
- The deceit lay in the concealment of the fact that the
areas being most heavily bombed were nearly always either city centres
or densely populated residential areas, which rarely contained any industry..
The vital links in the dissemination of this view were the press and the
radio upon which the public depended for all wartime news.. Neutral reports
[of the campaign against the residential areas of the German city of Hamburg,
for example] that 20,000 or 30,000 people had been killed were dismissed
as 'Nazi-inspired stories'.
- The military historian Sir Basil Liddell Hart [after
the Thousand Bomber Raid on Cologne with its claim of so many acres of
city destroyed] wrote: "It will be ironical if the defenders of civilization
depend for victory upon the most barbaric and unskilled way of winning
a war that the modern world has seen." , (Middlebrook, The Battle
of Hamburg (1980) pp 343-4]. In his foreword, Middlebrook notes "I
am likely to be criticized...for choosing a series of raids which produced
such extremes of horror on the ground. But I must point out that a large
proportion of the raids carried out by R.A.F. Bomber Command in the Second
World War were devoted to this type of bombing. What happened at Hamburg
was when Bomber Command 'got everything right' (p 12).
- In reality, many of these raids consisted of initial
attacks using high explosive bombs to break up the buildings, followed
with attacks using thousands of incendiary bombs to set alight all the
fabrics, furnishing and upholstery exposed by the explosives. In this way
firestorms were created under the right conditions which burned tens of
thousands of people alive, especially the women and children at home while
the men were at the front.
- Churchill himself ordered the firebomb raid on the city
of Dresden (David Irving The Destruction of Dresden (1966) pp. 96-100),
Alexander McKee, Dresden 1945 (1982) p 300, 306, 310) in the last months
of the war, producing the most spectacular deliberate firestorm in the
history of Europe. This action was probably the major war crime committed
in Europe. Dresden was not in any way a military target, and was packed
with refugees fleeing the advancing Russians, mainly women and children
and the elderly who were unfit to fight. It is therefore understandable
that it has been necessary to distract attention away from this viciously
and appallingly barbaric act by fabricating war crimes afterwards and attributing
them to the other side, a procedure that is finally starting to come unstuck.
- The Bush-Blair attack on Iraq at the behest of Zionists
in the US administration such as Paul Wolfowitz has demonstrated before
a world audience the lies that can be used to start wars, and in fact usually
do. The transparency and scale of Bush Administration lies, together with
the support given to the lies by a diverse array of other governments,
is producing a revulsion for professional politicians and their handlers
and spin doctors and sponsors.
