Of course, this article is not what the public history tells us about the outcomes of WWII. So let’s stick to the evidence of the time.
The following quote is an excerpt from Senator Homer Capehart’s speech before U.S. Senate, Feb. 5, 1946.
“Since the end of the war, about 3,000,000 people, mostly women and children and over-aged men, have been killed in Eastern Germany and south-eastern Europe; about 15,000,000 people have been deported or had to flee their homesteads and are on the road. About 25% of these people, over 3,000,000 have perished.
About 4,000,000 men and women have been deported to Russia as slaves. It seems that the elimination of the German population of Eastern Europe – at least 15,000,000 people – was planned in accordance with decisions made at Yalta.
Churchill had said … ‘Don’t mind the five or more million Germans. Stalin will see to them. You will have no trouble with them; they will cease to exist.'”
The deliberate policy of a confidential and conspiratorial clique within the policy-making circles of this government to draw and quarter a nation now reduced to abject misery…
In this process, this clique, like a pack of hyenas struggling over the bloody entrails of a corpse, and inspired by a sadistic and fanatic hatred, are determined to destroy the German nation and the German people, no matter what the consequences…
At Potsdam the representatives of the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Socialist Republics solemnly signed the following declaration of principles and purposes: ‘It is not the intention of the Allies to destroy or enslave the German people.’
Mr. President, the cynical and savage repudiation of these solemn declarations which has resulted in a major catastrophe, cannot be explained in terms of ignorance or incompetence. This repudiation, not only of the Potsdam Declaration, but also of every law of God and men, has been deliberately engineered with such a malevolent cunning, and with such diabolic skill, that the American people themselves have been caught in an international death trap…
For nine months now this administration has been carrying on a deliberate policy of mass starvation without any distinction between the innocent and the helpless and the guilty alike…
The first issue has been and continues to be merely humanitarian. This vicious clique within this administration …has not only betrayed our American principles, but they have betrayed the GI’s who have suffered and died, and they continue to betray the American GIs who have to continue their dirty work for them…
Those who have been responsible for this deliberate destruction of the German state and this criminal mass starvation of the German people have been so zealous in their hatred that all other interests and concerns have been subordinated to this one obsession of revenge.
In order to accomplish this, it mattered not if the liberated countries in Europe suffered and starved. To this point this clique of conspirators have addressed themselves:
‘Germany is to be destroyed. What happens to other countries of Europe in the process is of secondary importance.'”
End of quote.
Most of us recognise the veracity of the phrase: “The first casualty of War is Truth”, yet we are still drawn to believe what have been taught about history.
Until more people peel the onion of the lies we are fed, the abuses of our world conducted in the name of “freedom and democracy” and “free trade” will continue.
