VIII. War Games

Wars are a basic prerequisite for the system and perform different functions:

•  They are a good source of income.

•  They change the power structure as desired.

•  They make the people compliant.

Since the beginning of the rise of the Rothschild family, war was one of their main sources of income. It began with the 'rent-a-troop-business' of Prince William, on the financing of both Wellington and Napoleon, financing both sides of the American Revolutionary War and continues until today. Their philosophy is the Hegelian equivalent: Construct both the thesis and the antithesis and, by using the "constructed chaos", become master of the situation through the synthesis.

One promotes the dispute either of two already existing opposing parties, or, if such parties do not exist, one creates them oneself, such as communism and capitalism. By manipulating the conflict one finally achieves one's goal and the conditions that one seeks.

For the Banksters are these, besides the dominance in financial terms, mainly two things:

•  Establishment of the throne of David in Jerusalem and

•  World domination, the former requirement for the second.

There are two main fronts:

•  The front in Europe and America. They use these states as tools because they are the most powerful in the world. With them under control, the rest of the world is not a major problem. The necessary puppets are getting a brainwashing in certain Masonic lodges, which they dominate.

•  The front in Palestine to establish the throne of David. To 'liberate Palestine' and the establishment of Israel, it was first necessary to destroy the Ottoman Empire, in particular the Caliphate, to make the Muslims leaderless.

They began an ingenious intrigue.

Phase I (9 million deaths)

They weakened the Ottoman Empire from within, by supporting the Young Turks under Kemal Ataturk and introducing the banking system there, as well as externally, by inciting the Arabs to revolt. Here they both supported Hussein ibn Ali (1853-1931), King of Hejaz, and Abdul Aziz ibn Saud. Lawrence of Arabia was on the side of Hussein and Philby on the side of ibn Saud to ensure that whoever emerged as the winner out of the conflict on the Arabian Peninsula remained under control of the British. Ibn Saud got 5000 pounds per month and was thus 'employed' by the British. The Ottoman Empire on the other hand got a lot of technical assistance from the Deutsche Reich.

Place in Wadi Rum, Jordan,
where Prince Faisal and Lawrence of Arabia did meet.
Lawrence tells about it in his
book "Seven Pillars of Wisdom".

On 28 June 1914 the Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife were assassinated in Sarajevo. The track was laid to Serbia. The First World War began on 28 July 1914 with Austria-Hungary declaring war on Serbia. On the 30 th July Russia ordered a general mobilization in support of Serbia. The German Empire then on 1 st August declared, as an ally of Austria-Hungary, war on Russia. On the evening of the same day Russian cavalry divisions crossed the East Prussian border. The subsequent declarations of war enabled a series of alliances, which led shortly to the World War. The Central Powers, the German Empire and Austria-Hungary, fought on one side and the Entente powers, France, Great Britain, Russia and Serbia on the other side. Reluctance came from Belgium and Luxembourg as victims, in which the Germans invaded despite their neutrality, according to the Schlieffen Plan. During the war, the Central Powers were strengthened by the Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria, while Japan, Italy, Portugal, Romania and the United States entered the war on the side of the Entente.

During the First World War, the power-political contradictions of the European great powers that had led previously to a massive military build-up, erupted. At the end of the war, there were 25 states and their colonies involved, in which a total of 1.35 billion people were living or about three-quarters of the earth's population at that time. Because of the turmoil and the consequences still felt today, World War I is considered by many historians as the "seminal catastrophe of the 20th Century".

But what a nice business for the Banksters! Their plan worked out! England at the beginning of the war was inferior to the German Reich. It lost much of its fleet by German U-boat attacks. With the back to the wall, England agreed on the terms of Rothschild.

Rothschild (who shortly before had financed Cecil Rhodes in South Africa, founded the company De Beers, which dominated at that time 90% of the global rough diamond trade, exploited the local Kimberley diamond mine and thus amassed incredible wealth) promised to help, by granting financial assistance and, through his association with President Wilson and other puppets, draw the U.S. into the war, against the will of the American people. The official reason on the one hand was the sinking of the Lusitania (British passenger ship carrying ammunitions from the U.S. to England. Was sunk by a German U-boat and 124 Americans died), and the Zimmermann Telegram (in which the Germans promised Mexico regain of the old territories formerly annexed by the U.S. in case Mexico would fight on Germany's side. In the course of the US-Mexican War of 1846/48 the Americans had annexed about 40% of the Mexican territory or acquired dirt cheap (California, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming and Arizona)).

In the Balfour Declaration of 2nd November 1917 the former world power of Great Britain agreed to the Zionist efforts to establish in Palestine a "national home" of the Jewish people. At that time, Palestine was still under the Ottoman sphere of influence. With the help of the Arabs under Sharif Hussein's sons, Abdullah and Faisal, the capture of Beersheba took place on 31st October 1917 under the command of Allenby, and thus began the conquest of Palestine by British troops, which was eventually completed in December 1917. The British Balfour Declaration was addressed to the leaders of the World Zionist Organization:

The war had paid off in full:

•  Huge profits through arms sales and loans!

•  Destruction of the Ottoman Empire with the caliph only as a puppet (which was later dismantled by Kemal Pasha completely)!

•  But most importantly: The first step towards the establishment of the State of Israel was done!

All of this was paid for with the death of 9 million people and an incredible inferno. The First World War was the first war that was fought with massive use of materials (tanks, planes, blimps) and weapons of mass destruction (poison gas). The fronts however were moving barely, especially in Western Europe, partly because modern technology was used in connection with old military strategies. Especially on the battlefields at Verdun and Flanders fell on both sides hundreds of thousands of soldiers without changing anything on the military situation. The First World War was as terror surpassing anything previously known.

Max Warburg was the chief of the German intelligence during World War II and was a financial advisor to the emperor. When the Emperor was sent into the Dutch exile after the war, Max Warburg was not sent with him into exile as one might assume. No, he became now the financial advisor to the new government!

Kings and governments come and go, but the real power remains with the banksters! At the Paris Summit, where the Treaty of Versailles was signed, Max was a representative of the German side, while his brother Paul was on the American side! Edmund Rothschild was present too. The German Empire was proclaimed as the scapegoat, bearing the costs of war. It also lost its colonies, its army and its fleet in addition to some of the Alsace area, which accounted to 13% of the kingdom.

Meanwhile, Sharif Hussein failed in its goal to establish the Hashemite dynasty throughout the Arab world. Although Faisal was crowned king of Syria and King Abdullah became Emir of Transjordan, on the Arabian Peninsula the Sauds gained supremacy and established a dynasty. Britain and France though were unwilling to give up their supremacy in the Middle East in favour of newly-formed Arab monarchies. Through the mandates of the newly formed League of Nations they secured and legitimized their influence.

Russian Revolution (14 million death)

Tsar Nicholas and his family, who had opposed Rothschild's efforts to set up the League of Nations (the forerunner of a world government) were killed and removed. Schiff, Warburg, Rockefeller and Harriman helped Trotsky financially and with military training. He was granted free passage through Germany (Max Warburg was chief of intelligence on the German side as one may remember). Rockefeller received from Woodrow Wilson a special passport for Trotsky and sent Lincoln Steffens with him, in order that he arrived safely in Russia.

The October Revolution had cost 14 million lives, more than in the entire First World War. Lenin borrowed $60 billion from Rothschild, thus Rothschild won the influence he wanted. The successor of Lenin, Stalin, drove forward with terror and an iron hand the industrialization of Russia and made communism a considerable counterweight to democracy. Planned conflicts between these two parties would be the perfect alibi for all future wars.

Meanwhile, the emigration of Jews to Palestine was slow. Kibbutz after kibbutz was founded. Initially the Arab agricultural workers were needed but now there was no longer room for them, and the Arab landowners, from which the Jews bought land, cared not about the fate of their tenants. This resulted in the establishment of an impoverished, embittered faction of Arabs who began to rebel against both the Jewish immigrants and the British Mandate. There were riots and terrorist attacks by both sides in these years.

While the Palestinian Arabs were hopelessly divided among themselves, which made them powerless against their two opponents, the Zionists created a tightly run organization, which represented almost already a Jewish government: the "Jewish Agency" under the leadership of Chaim Weizman, the later President of Israel. At the same time the powerful trade union federation Histadrut was founded, whose strong arm was the secret military organization Haganah.

Phase II (over 50 million deaths, 7 million rape cases)

In the Weimar Republic, Adolf Hitler was ready to take power. One of his main sponsors was IG Farben, which came out in 1904 from a merger of the six major chemical companies in Germany, namely Baden Aniline, Bayer, Agfa, Hoechst, Weiler-ter-Meer and Greisheim-Elektron. The guiding spirit as well as the funding came from Rothschild, who was represented by our friend Max Warburg, of M.M. Warburg Hamburg. IG Farben soon had a net worth of six billion marks and controlled 500 companies. They opened also a branch in America, the 'American IG' in cooperation with Rockefeller's Standard Oil. One of its directors was the brother of Max, Paul, who was also the director of Kuhn & Loeb.

Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands entered the SS in the early thirties. He also became a board member of IG Farben Bilder. After the war he organized the Bilderberg Group. Bilderberg-Conferences are informal meetings of very influential people from politics, economy, military, press, aristocracy and universities, who work out common strategies. The results of these meetings are secret.

In 1930, Standard Oil announced that it had purchased an alcohol monopoly in Germany, a business that was initiated by IG Farben. When Hitler came to power, John D. Rockefeller appointed him his deputy Ivy Lee to counsel him in terms of armament, an important step towards World War II. Standard Oil built large refineries for the Nazis and supplied them with oil during the Second World War.

Here one may ask, why Jewish industrialists support a megalomaniac anti-Semite like Hitler?

Also Prescott Bush, grandfather of George W. Bush, made with some other 'Bonesmen' business with the Nazis even during the embargo against the German Reichsbank. This is seen as evidence of the intertwining of 'Skull & Bones' with totalitarian organizations in Germany. In the early 30's, even before the takeover, the U.S. Embassy had cabled to Washington questions about the financial background of Hitler's elaborate election campaign and the arming of his private army of 300,000 brownshirts. The staff had noticed that the SA was equipped with weapons produced in the U.S.

The German steel magnate Fritz Thyssen later admitted that he had invested in the Hitler project since 1930 - its asset managers and bankers at this time: Bush and Harriman. On 20 th October 1942, under the 'Trading with the Enemy Act", were the assets of the Union Banking Corporation (UBC) managed by Prescott Bush confiscated. Prescott Bush engaged the lawyer Allen Dulles in June 1936 to lay aside profits from these transactions.

In the night of the 28th February 1933 an arson attack on the Reichstag building in Berlin was committed. Arrested at the scene was Marinus van der Lubbe. However, the circumstances could not be clarified, especially if Marinus was guilty is still subject to controversy. Undeniably are the political consequences. Already on 28 th February, the Decree of the Reich President for the Protection of People and State (Reichstag Fire Decree) was adopted. (Does this remind to 9/11 and the Patriot Act?) The fundamental rights of the Weimar Constitution were virtually abolished, and the way was paved for the legalized persecution of the political opponents of NSDAP and SA by the police.

Goering said: "This is the beginning of the communist insurgency, they will strike now! We must act immediately!"

Hitler said after this report:

There is no mercy anymore! Whoever stands in our way will be crushed. The German people will have no sympathy for clemency. Every Communist official will be shot, wherever he is found. The Communist deputies must be hanged this very night. Everything must be imprisoned, which is in alliance with the Communists. Also Social Democrats and Reichsbanner will not be spared anymore.

Well, the self-defence! After the Second World War, all around the world the War Ministry was renamed to Ministry of Defence. Whether before or now in Palestine, Afghanistan or Iraq, or the emerging Israel-Iran war: the old formula still seems to be working perfectly! Even so when the U.S. entered the war:

Henry Stimson graduated from Yale University in 1888 where he belonged to the fraternity 'Skull & Bones'. He was also foreign minister and defence minister of the United States. Ten days before the attack on Pearl Harbour, he made in his diary the much discussed remark that he had discussed with Truman how to make the Japanese fire the first shot, without taking a great risk so that Japan appeared as the aggressor. He also advised Truman later on the use of the nuclear bomb.

As early as 1932 and 1938 the Pearl Harbour base had twice been "hijacked" in naval exercises - one with 152 aircrafts - and was each time completely overburdened with the defence. Therefore it was regarded as a particularly vulnerable naval base. When Roosevelt ordered to move the fleet from the West Coast to Pearl Harbour, Admiral Richardson protested against it and eventually refused to execute the command. He was replaced by Admiral Kimmel - who was brought before a committee of inquiry after the Japanese attack on charges of negligence. He was acquitted when it became known that he had been deprived of 188 decoded Japanese messages, which revealed the impending attack, including the date and time!

Dutch, British and Russian intelligence services had additionally warned of an impending attack - but their messages too had been detained by the intelligence agencies in Washington. When two of the most respected historians in the U.S. - the professors Charles Beard and Harry Elmer Barnes - rejected the official government version, they were denounced as crackpots and lunatics and removed. The "surprise attack" has since become part of any Lexicon (see also Harry Elmer Barnes: Pearl Harbour after a Quarter of a Century).

The American public was persuaded to enter the war by the attack on Pearl Harbour. WWII culminated in the unprecedented destruction of civilian targets by nuclear bombs.

On 28th May 1945 President Truman got news from Harry Hopkins, U.S. ambassador in Moscow, that Soviet troops had taken battle position against Japan in Manchuria. Japan knew that it has lost. However, since Japan's government would not surrender unconditionally, Stalin had proposed to accept a Japanese peace offer and then enforce their own goals through joint occupation and administration of Japan. His message remained unheeded.

The United States Air Force was convinced of the debilitating effects of their attacks and believed that the regime could only hope for favourable terms of peace while maintaining state sovereignty. Therefore the annual report of the strategic bomber fleet pointed to the fact that if conventional air attacks continued unabated, Japan's surrender would be likely due till December 1945.

On 9th July, the Japanese Ambassador Sato Naotake had asked in Moscow already for peace negotiations. The Russian Foreign Minister Molotov should bring this request to the participants of the upcoming Potsdam Conference (17 th July - 2 nd August 1945). The United States knew about it on the 13 th July 1945.

On 16th July 1945 Truman was told in Berlin at the start of the Potsdam conference of the first successful detonation of an atomic bomb near Alamogordo in the desert in the U.S. state of New Mexico (Trinity test). The second bomb Little Boy was shipped at the same time to the island of Tinian in the Pacific where it should be made ready immediately for testing.

General Dwight D. Eisenhower later said the decision to use the two atomic bombs was already been made on the 16 th July. He recommended Truman not to use it because the Japanese had already signalled willingness to surrender and the United States should not use such weapons first.

On 26th July 1945 Truman announced on behalf of the United States, the Republic of China under Chiang Kai-shek and the United Kingdom the Potsdam Declaration, calling the Japanese government to immediate and unconditional surrender. This was not agreed with the Soviet Union! Molotov had unsuccessfully asked the United States to hold back the ultimatum a few days until his government had cancelled its non-aggression pact with Japan. But the entry of the Soviet Union was now undesirable for the U.S. government. The statement went out:

The full application of our military power, coupled with our determination means the inevitable and complete destruction of the Japanese armed forces and the devastation of the Japanese homeland.

They would occupy Japan completely, eradicate its leadership and introduce democracy, punish the war criminals, demand reparations and limit Japan's region to the four main islands. The Japanese industry would be retained and later allowed to participate in world trade again.

"We call upon the government of Japan to proclaim now the unconditional surrender of all Japanese armed forces, and to provide proper and adequate assurances of their good faith in such action. The alternative for Japan is prompt and utter destruction."

Any specific reference to the planned use of a new weapon and its target was missing. Since the U.S. invasion of the Japanese main islands would not begin until three months later, the Japanese government had to assume that this would be the usual ritual to demoralize the Japanese, not an actual warning. At that time they were still hoping that Stalin would move the Western Allies to an acceptance of the already launched peace initiative. Particularly the loss of so much territory seemed unacceptable. Therefore the response of General Kantaro Suzuki was such: "The government does not find anything of significant value in the joint statement and sees no other option than to ignore it completely, and decided to work towards the successful outcome of the war."

A positive response had not been expected anyway, so that the deployment order was already made before the ultimatum! The result is known...

To come back again to the question of why Jewish industrialists supported megalomaniac anti-Semite like Hitler:

There are various theories and reports. One theory presented by Arthur Koestler, himself a Jew and Zionist, states that most European Jews are descendants from the Khazars, a Turkic people, who adopted Judaism in the 8 th Century. Therefore they were converts and did not belong to the original 12 tribes of Israel. He called his book "The 13 th Tribe". The view of Koestler is also shared by Benjamin Freedman, another Jewish scholar, who published his views in the book 'Facts are facts' in 1954.

One thing is quite sure: Many Jews got special treatment! For example, there is the memorandum of Horst Hoyer, a former SS lieutenant general, who claimed that the Nazis had indeed differentiated between the Jews. Many had been flown out from Germany and many would have get special treatment, e.g. a relative of Henry Morgenthau was later flown from Lublin via neutral Spain to America. Hoyer was offered 30.000 Mark in order to denounce his report as an imagination, but Hoyer declined. Shortly afterwards he was murdered, his wife committed suicide.

It is also known that many Nazis themselves had Jewish blood, for example the butcher Adolf Eichmann and Reinhard Heydrich. Even Himmler's grandfather was said to be a Jew just as Adolf Hitler's great-grandfather.

Certain is that in the thirties 60% of the Jews were married with Germans. The Jews were well integrated in Germany, had considerable property and academic titles. That's why they were very badly motivated to emigrate to a country that, in comparison to Germany, was barren and inhabited and surrounded by hostile Arabs. The longing for a homeland for the Jewish people was at the lowest to say the least.

But this of course changed dramatically under Hitler!

The consciousness to be one's own race that were hated and pursued not only in Germany, generated a strong desire to have one's own land.

Consequently, the rate of emigration to Israel rose very sharply, and no longer a predominantly rural population mostly from Russia, Africa and Arab States, but an educated middle class from Europe.

Any protest against Israel and its policies, even if Israel violates as many UN resolutions as it wishes, as well as any suspicion against a Zionist international financial cartel, can always be put down with the slogan "anti-Semitism" and even with criminal prosecution.

The existence of Israel was internationally recognized in 1948 and the expulsion of the Palestinian population accepted as a necessary step towards a greater good.

Unquestioning loyalty, especially from Germany and the USA, paid off and still pay off also in noticeable reparation payments and weapon exports.

In the second half of the 20th Century, following the old scheme, conflicts were promoted or generated, serving both as sources of income as well as a regulative for the distribution of power. Proxy regimes were promoted and then dropped again.

Vietnam (3 million deaths, 7 million injured, mainly by Agent Orange)

An outstanding example is Vietnam, where again a reason for war was sought and found: The reason for the open U.S. commitment was the fake incident of Tonkin in August 1964, where a U.S. warship allegedly got involved in a battle with North Vietnamese patrol boats. This served the Johnson administration as an opportunity to persuade the U.S. Congress to legitimize an open intervention.

Second Gulf War (100,000 dead)

The Gulf War against Saddam, the "reincarnation of Hitler," followed the same pattern. First he was build up against Iran, then forcibly disarmed but kept installed as a geopolitical pawn to guarantee the influence of the "mob" on the Middle East (and the oil price)? Was Khomeini allowed to install from Paris, under the eyes of all western secret services, the first radical Islamic state because they did not know his ideology - or was it because the Shah did not want to slow down voluntarily the production of the Persian oil fields? Are not all militant "Islamic thugs" of similar, homemade calibre?

Of course, the mobilization of Saddam's troops had been registered weeks before. That an invasion of Kuwait was imminent was obvious, after Kuwait was equipped with a drilling technique that allowed to drill sideways and to tap Iraq's oil ... but here again it was intended to invite Saddam to the "first shot". Otherwise one would have in the subsequent bombing of Iraq (100,000 dead) at the end appeared as the aggressor - and instead of a faithful shepherd dog of "civilization" as an aggressive pit bull of one's own power and oil interests - like without Pearl Harbour, Hiroshima and Nagasaki would not have passed as defence of civilization, but as a murderous terrorist attack and weapon testing.

The U.S. took the opportunity to bluff Saudi Arabia: The Americans showed the Saudis, most probably fake, satellite photos of major troop concentrations in Kuwait along the Saudi border. The Saudis could be cajoled to "Operation Desert Shield" - and still have the American troops in the country.

Economic sanctions were following the war immediately. Iraq was allowed to import certain products under the oil-for-food program. UNICEF reported in 1998 that the sanctions were responsible for an increase of 90,000 deaths per year (IAC), mostly young children and babies.


The 'Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan' (RAWA), which was for a long time in opposition to the Taliban Regime, underlined in a statement the fact "that people in Afghanistan have nothing to do with Osama and his accomplices. But unfortunately we have to realize that it was the government of the United States who supported Pakistani dictator Gen. Zia ul-Haq in opening up thousands of religious schools, which laid the seeds for the development of the Taliban. In a similar way Osama was, as everyone knows, the blue-eyed boy of the CIA.''

Now, one might feel, a statement of a feminist, probably left-wing cell, is not sufficient as evidence for the active U.S. role in the breeding of new assassins - but it looks much different with the source published by Yale University Press in spring of 2000: "Taliban: Militant Islam, Oil and Fundamentalism in Central Asia".
The author, Ahmed Rashid, is a senior correspondent for the Far Eastern Economic Review and the (conservative) Daily Telegraph in London and a renowned expert of the region. He leaves no doubt that it was the Americans that promoted the breeding places of the new assassins in Pakistan and Afghanistan and supported them massively.

In 1986, according to Rashid, CIA Director Casey intensified the war against the Soviet Union with three measures: He persuaded the Congress to equip the Afghan mujahedeen with Stinger missiles and to educate and support them for the guerrilla war. In collaboration with the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and the British MI6 it was also planned to confuse the neighbouring Soviet republics of Uzbekistan and Tajikistan with "Islamic" terror attacks. Third, the CIA supported now the efforts of ISI to acquire fighters in other Islamic countries for the holy war and to build up a network of camps and "religious schools" for ideological and military training:

Between 1982 and 1992 35,000 radical Muslims from 43 Islamic countries received their baptism of fire with the Afghan Mujahidin. Tens of thousands more came to one of the hundreds of madrassas that Zia's military regime had opened in Pakistan and along the border. Overall, more than 100,000 Muslim radicals came in contact with the Jihad in Afghanistan and Pakistan (...) In camps near Peshawar and in Afghanistan, these radicals met for the first time and learned and practiced together. In the future, these camps became virtual universities for future Islamic radicalism."

IX. 9 / 11
To all these so-called 'evidences' says Rex Tomb, 'Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI' on 06/05/2006: "The FBI has no clear evidence that bring Osama bin Laden in connection with the 9 / 11 attacks!" If the FBI itself admits it would not have enough evidence, then how can one start a war?
