The Second World War and Its Causes

What did cause the War? Who won? These are reasonable questions. Here is my attempt at answering one of them. If you disagree you can write to me at Mike Emery. NB Another and much better view is at The Origins of World War 2  A finger is pointed at the Jew and his malignant influence. Anti-Semitism does not just happen. He quotes sources. This is always a good sign. Sean Gabb's article at The Second World War And Neville Chamberlain  is also worth reading. Sean does not finger the Jew but says Chamberlain was much maligned. Pat Buchanan argues contra, asking Did Hitler Want War? He thinks not.

The First World War ended with victory for the Allies and defeat for the German Empire.

There were major pressures and a desperate population. The government was weak and there were political subversives trying to take advantage of the situation. Adolf was the political winner. Rosa Luxemburg, Karl Liebknecht and the Communist Party of Germany  were the losers. This was fortunate  because communism was an enemy. It still is. Destroying England by treachery is the method today. Communists were not pleased at their reverse. A lot of left wing  propagandists were out there telling lies. We have been told that the Nazis were supremely evil and that the communists were misguided at worst. The left have always been very keen on propaganda as a weapon. They are still using it and have penetrated Europe from within. See Europe and Treason on the point but that is another and current problem.

Although the Nazis beat the communists they were just as thuggish. Invading smaller countries on various pretexts was an effective tactic for a while but led us to England's reluctant declaration of war and the European conflagration.  The results were not pretty - see Hiroshima Afterwards. Then there is the question of why the Germans lost. Oil is definitely part of the answer. See:-

Why Germany really lost World War II
A short answer, a simple answer is the lack of oil. It is why Auschwitz was set up, to convert coal into petrol.

Here is something about the causes:-

High Cost Of Vengeance
Spanish flu

Versailles Treaty
Hyperinflation
Hyperinflation and the Invasion of the Ruhr
World War I reparations
Stock Market Crash of 1929


Reichswehr
Weimar Republic
Bavarian Soviet Republic
Communist Party of Germany
Hungarian Soviet Republic
Alsace Soviet Republic

Mein Kampf On Secession
QUOTE
In the beginning of 1923 the French invaded Germany, occupied the Ruhr district and seized several German towns in the Rhineland.............the French carried on an intensive propaganda for the separation of the Rhineland from the German Republic and the establishment of an independent Rhenania..... At the same time a vigorous movement was being carried on in Bavaria for the secession of that country and the establishment of an independent Catholic monarchy there, under vassalage to France,........... But in Bavaria the movement went even farther. And it was more far-reaching in its implications; for, if an independent Catholic monarchy could be set up in Bavaria, the next move would have been a union with Catholic German-Austria. possibly under a Habsburg King. Thus a Catholic BLOC would have been created which would extend from the Rhineland through Bavaria and Austria into the Danube Valley and would have been at least under the moral and military, if not the full political, hegemony of France............ The effect of putting such a plan into action would have meant the complete dismemberment of Germany; and that is what French diplomacy aimed at.
UNQUOTE
James Murphy did the translation and was sympathetic. Knowing German history and politics he would take the point that the European Union is a French boondoggle to control Germany.

 

Spanish flu
Was the pandemic [ super epidemic ] that got 50,000,000 to 100,000,000 kills in 1918 and 1919 which is more than WW1 got. Spartacus  tells us in  Influenza in the First World War that:-
QUOTE
By the end of the summer the virus had reached the German Army. The virus created serious problems for the German military leadership as they found it impossible to replace their sick and dying soldiers. The infection had already reached Germany and over 400,000 civilians died of the disease in 1918.
UNQUOTE
from Influenza in the First World War

 

Versailles Conference
Was the meeting of the victors after the First World War that decided what was going to be done to Germany. The verdict was; Rob them blind. The French were particularly vindictive.  Germany lost all of its colonies. Remember Sudwest Afrika which is now called Namibia? It also lost a lot of its own territory. Screwing  them was not entirely a good idea. It helped start the next war.
 
Hyperinflation
Inflation is what happens when governments print more money. It is exactly the same as forgery but on a larger scale. It is a way of robbing us. Hyperinflation is when it gets silly as happened in Germany in the early 1920s. Signs are:-
QUOTE
1. The general population prefers to keep its wealth in non-monetary assets or in a relatively stable foreign currency. Amounts of local currency held are immediately invested to maintain purchasing power.
2. The general population regards monetary amounts not in terms of the local currency but in terms of a relatively stable foreign currency. Prices may be quoted in that currency. According to a Newsweek magazine article, in Turkey in the late 1990s, people used the United States dollar as a reference although that country suffered only chronic inflation.
3. Sales and purchases on credit take place at prices that compensate for the expected loss of purchasing power during the credit period, even if the period is short.
4. Interest rates, wages and prices are linked to a price index and the cumulative inflation rate over three years approaches, or exceeds, 100%.
UNQUOTE
German savings were wiped out. Poverty resulted. It was very bad news. Keeping your assets in real things makes sense this day.
 
Hyperinflation and the Invasion of the Ruhr (GERMANY)
QUOTE
On 11 January 1923 French an [ sic ] Belgian troops entered the Ruhr [ sic ] Valley after Germany after Germany had declared that they could not make their second reparations installment [ sic ]. The French and Belgian troops wanted to take matters into their own hands  [ the troops or the politicians? - Editor ] as they refused to believe that Germany was unable to pay.
The invasion of the Rhur [ sic ] helped the Germans as they now had a common enemy, the French, and thus united. Previously there had been much unrest in Germany. The Germans, due to the Versailles treaty, did not have a big enough army to defend itself so rather than using force, the German workers refused to work, implementing passive resistance. The government gave its full support. As well as passive resistance, some destroyed railroad, bridges, etc. and others fought the French soldiers.
UNQUOTE
The French invasion is one of those little known episodes of history and proves that the stresses were major. The French got too greedy and lost out big time when they were invaded in 1939.
 
World War I reparations
World War I reparations were a series of payments the German state was forced [ demanded rather than actually paid - Editor ] to make following its defeat during World War I, under Article 231 of the Treaty of Versailles. The amount demanded was  officially put at £4,990,000,000 [ £4.99 billion ] which is a lot of money even now. Then it was worth a lot more, perhaps 50 times as much.
In fact they only paid the first installment. The French and Belgians invaded in 1923 when the Germans didn't come through with the second lot. What really hurt was the  Stock Market Crash of 1929.
 
Stock Market Crash of 1929
This happened to the New York Stock Exchange but the repercussions were worldwide. It led to the Great Depression which got a grip in 1930 and hurt a lot of people.
 
Reichswehr
Was founded in 1919 from men who got back from the Western Front and other scenes of brutality. A lot of other men  joined the  Freikorps (free corps) who were involved in peace keeping operations. They were ineffective in keeping order and was finally outnumbered by the SA [ Sturmabteilung ], a Nazi army.
 
Weimar Republic
Was the German government after the Kaiser left.
QUOTE
The Weimar Republic ( Weimarer Republik ]  is the common name for the republic that governed Germany from 1919 to 1933. The constitution was written in the  city of Weimar, [ close to Buchenwald of infamous memory. It failed because it was weak - Editor ]...   Although technically the 1919 constitution was not invalidated until after World War II, the legal measures taken by the Nazi government in 1933 (commonly known as Gleichschaltung) destroyed the mechanisms of a typical democratic system, so 1933 is cited as the end of the Weimar Republic.
UNQUOTE
Actually this quote is not quite verbatim. Hitler's destruction of the constitution is uncannily similar to Bush's current [ October 2006 ] destruction of America's democracy and Blair's earlier destruction of English democracy.
 
Communist Party Of Germany
QUOTE
Paul Levi became the KPD [ Kommunistische Partei Deutschlands  ] leader. Other prominent members included Leo Jogiches, Clara Zetkin, Paul Levi, Paul Frolich, Willi M�nzenberg, Jurgen Zethner, Franz Mehring and Ernst Meyer.
Through the 1920s the KPD was racked by internal conflict between more and less radical factions, partly reflecting the power struggles between Trotsky and Stalin in Moscow. Germany was seen as being of central importance to the struggle for socialism, and the failure of the German revolution was a major setback
In its early years the KPD was committed to an armed workers' revolution in Germany, and during 1919 and 1920 revolutionary disturbances continued. But the majority Social Democrats, who had come to power after the fall of the old regime, hated the revolutionary socialists and brought in the army to suppress them. During the failed Spartacist Uprising in Berlin of January 1919, Liebknecht and Luxemburg were killed. they then split into two factions, the KPD and the Communist Workers Party of Germany (KAPD), both proclaiming loyalty to the Communist International in Moscow [ and Germany be damned - Editor ]
UNQUOTE
They were not the major cause of problems but they were revolutionaries trying to take over. They did not make things better. Had they succeeded the Soviet Empire would have extended to the French border.

 

Hungarian Soviet Republic March - August 1919
It didn't last long but was sincerely nasty. It was run by a Jew, one Bela Kun who was keen on mass murder. Joe Stalin sorted him out.

 
Morgenthau Plan
The Jew, Morgenthau decided to turn Germany into a land of peasants after the Second World War. He had no problem with letting them starve either.
 

Bavarian Soviet Republic 1918 -1919
Was a break away carried out in 1918 days before the end of the First World War by Kurt Eisner, Jew and subversive. Adolf Hitler did not approve. He tells us in Mein Kampf that:-
In deliberately giving the revolutionary rising in Bavaria the character of an offensive against Prussia, Kurt Eisner was not acting in the slightest degree from the standpoint of Bavarian interests, but merely as the commissioned representative of Jewry. He exploited existing instincts and antipathies in Bavaria as a means which would help to make the dismemberment of Germany all the more easy. When once dismembered, the REICH would fall an easy prey to Bolshevism. The art of the Bolshevik agitators, in representing the suppression of the Bavarian Soviet Republic a victory of 'Prussian Militarism' over the 'Anti-militarists' and 'Anti-Prussian' people of Bavaria, bore rich fruit.

 

Alsace Soviet Republic ex Wiki
In this current [ September 2014 ] version the Wiki implies that the Soviets were not deeply vicious. Believe them if you will.
QUOTE
November 1918 was the period of transition when the region of Alsace-Lorraine passed from German to French sovereignty at the end of World War I. During this month, international events were linked to domestic troubles, particularly the German Revolution.

In the wake of the German Revolution, Marxist councils of workers and soldiers (Soldaten und Arbeiterräte) formed in Mulhouse on November 9 and in Colmar and Strasbourg on November 10, in parallel to other such bodies set up in the general revolutionary atmosphere of the expiring Reich and in imitation of the Russian equivalent soviets. Under the Empire of 1871–1918, the territory constituting the Reichsland (or Imperial Province) of Alsace-Lorraine was administered directly by the imperial government in Berlin, and was granted some measure of autonomy in 1911. Similarly, the Kaiser was also the local sovereign of the Land, so that Kaiser Wilhelm II's abdication on November 9 involved the fall of the monarchy both at the national and at the regional level, with a consequent legal power vacuum. In this chaotic situation the Landtag proclaimed itself the supreme authority of the land with the name of Nationalrat, the Soviet of Strasbourg claimed the foundation of a Republic of Alsace-Lorraine, while SPD Reichstag representative for Colmar, Jacques Peirotes, announced the establishment of the French rule, asking Paris to send troops quickly.[1]

While the soviet councils disbanded themselves with the departure of the German troops between November 11 and 17,[2] the arrival of the French Army stabilized the situation: French troops put the region under military occupation and entered Strasbourg on November 21. The Nationalrat proclaimed the annexation of Alsace to France on December 5, even though this process did not gain international recognition until the signature of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919.

John Thames Explains
QUOTE
Buchanan's thesis is well within that of the American revisionist historians of both world wars. It is very clear that the mistreatment of Germany following the First World War was a major factor in causing the rise of the Nazis. It is equally indisputable that Communism in Russia until the early 1950's was a Jewish movement. Hitler's identification of Jews with communism was common to all Europeans and many Americans of the day.

The causes of the war were: (1) British balance of power politics; (2) German expansion; (3) Soviet attack plans against Europe in 1941; (4) Roosevelt's desire to use intervention to solve the depression; (5) Jewish desire to punish Germany.

The disastrous consequences of the war justify an argument that it would have been better to ally with Germany against Stalin on the grounds that the lesser evil was preferable to the greater evil. The Holocaust does not enter into the calculation because whatever the true number of Jewish deaths, that number does not compare with the far greater number of deaths already caused by the Jewish communist regime in Russia.
