Ah yes flashman - of course some of the tribes in Afghanistan are 'white' using 9/11 weird parameters.

I seem to recall the Swedish army being defeated by the Russian Slavs on more than one occassion.

Hmmm I wonder how the French defeated the Prussian army in 1806? I've forgotten but on planet 9/11 are the French considered to be 'white'? LOL

Unfortunately/fortunately the northern Europeans didn't get into Colonization as much as others, Swedish and Danish colonization being rather rare. So they have had fewer contacts with those pesky 'inferior' races. I seem to recall that the Dutch army in The Dutch East Indies and Ceylon didn't do very well against the Japanese and during 300+ years in the east and suffered a number of defeats against all types of inferior foes to include the British......

Yes I've noted that too. I also note that the Axis only includes the Germans and Japanese and tends to leave out the Italians, Roumanians, Hungarians and Bulgaria and few other occupied/puppet states and the odd co-belligerent.

Most forgotten is the follow on Italian state that fought for the Axis after the Kingdom of Italy surrendered and switched sides. The much forgotten Republic of Salo (Italian Social Republic or Repubblica Sociale Italiana or RSI)

Additional comments:

Quote:
Hitler changed the subject to the larger matter of the opportunities available after the conquest of England. Hitler told Molotov that:

“ After the conquest of England, the British Empire would be apportioned as a gigantic world-wide estate in bankruptcy of forty million square kilometers. In this bankrupt estate there would be for Russia access to the ice-free and really open ocean. Thus far, a minority of forty-five million Englishmen had ruled six hundred million inhabitants of the British Empire. He was about to crush this minority . . . Under these circumstances there arose world-wide perspectives . . . All the countries which could possibly be interested in the bankrupt estate would have to stop all controversies among themselves and concern themselves exclusively with the partition of the British Empire. This applied to Germany, France, Italy, Russia and Japan.
Shirer 1990, p. 725

Quote:
In the air raid shelter, Ribbentrop gave Molotov a draft agreement with two parts. As had become the practice between the parties, one part was of the agreement that would eventually be made public, while the other contained the secret agreement. The public portion contained an agreement with a ten year term whereby the parties would respect each others natural spheres of interests, while Germany, Italy and Japan would affirm their recognition of existing Soviet borders.

The draft of the secret agreement included the obligation not to join any alliance directed at the four signatories and to assist each other in economic matters. The secret agreement contained a protocol defining the territorial objectives of the four signatories, with Germany laying claims to central Africa, Italy in northern and northeast Africa, Japan in southeast Asia and the Soviet zone to the to ”center south of the national territory of the Soviet Union in the direction of the Indian Ocean.” A second secret protocol provided that Germany, Italy and the Soviet Union would "liberate" Turkey from its international obligations with Britain to guarantee its borders.
Quote:
One month after Nazi government foreign ministry documents describing the negotiations were publicly released by the United States, the Soviet Foreign Information Bureau wrote a response in a book titled Falsifiers of History.

After receiving translations of the newly released documents, Stalin personally edited, struck and re-wrote entire sections by hand drafts he had been given of Falsifiers before its release in February 1948.

In Falsifiers, Stalin claimed that he was merely "probing out" Germany in Axis negotiations and to have outright rejected Hitler's proposal to share a division of the world. That version persisted, without exception, in all historical studies, official accounts, memoirs and textbooks published in the USSR until 1990

I think he usually classes the French as white, at least the northern ones.

However Napoleon was a Corsican, so he falls under those dodgy Mediterranean types that 911 disparages whenever the likes of Italy are brought up.

Perhaps we need a guide to 9/11's twisted world! I wonder where the South Tyrolese fit into his world view.

Considering his use of Anglo as an insult, and his failure to acknowledge the germanic origins of the Anglo-Saxons, I suspect it would be a "unique" view.

Just to follow up on this...

The reason the Ardennes offensive failed was not because of the troops participating, but because the operation was poorly conceived—the German armoured forces only had enough fuel to get roughly halfway to their objectives. They were relying on capturing Allied fuel dumps to get them the rest of the way.*

Such a plan had no realistic chance of succeeding.

As is happened, the 101st Airborne held Bastogne, Patton turned his army 90º in just a few days, and the skies cleared, unleashing Allied air power. Which turned an unfeasible campaign into a sound defeat. Germany would have been better off having dug in all those troops along its border to defend against any western Allied offensive—as they had demonstrated in Normandy, the German army could be an extremely tough defender of terrain.

But who was it who ordered the Ardennes offensive, over the objections of many of his generals? Who was it who would not countenance a tactical retreat when it was clear the battle was not going to be won? Your old friend Hitler.


*And the primary reason for that fuel shortage? The progressive destruction of German oil production by USAAF and RAF heavy bombers.

It's good nein11 is on a forced vacation, so I had some time to catch up with the thread.

For a while, yes. In 1941 the first razzias to round up Jews started, which would result in the murder of around 105,000 Dutch Jews. In 1942, the Arbeitseinsatz started, in which the Nazis would ship off hundreds of thousands Dutch to do slave labor for the Nazi war machine. And the Netherlands was relatively well-off during the Nazi occupation.

The hunger winter of 1944/45 was the result of the occupation. To help the Allied war effort, the Dutch railway personnel went on strike at the time of Market Garden, and kept in hiding. The Nazis, however, not only refused to run trains with food themselves, but blocked any food transport, resulting in massive food shortages in the heavily urbanized west part of the country, and around 20,000 deaths. That was wholly unnecessary as on the whole, there was enough food in the occupied part of the Netherlands.

Both are gleefully refering to Anton Mussert, the Dutch national socialist, who got shot after the war. They both assume that I deplore that he got shot, because they assume that I have sympathy for national socialism. They are wrong. Not that I am going to put a iota of effort in denying that I am a Nazi. I am going to be smeared anyway into being a Nazi. Smearing is the essence of people of low character. A better strategy is to openly encourage to be smeared as a Nazi. At least in that case you don't bow for their tirannical political correctness. So Hans and ddt implicitly support the shooting of Mussert because of treason of the Dutch people. But now they put themselves on a slippery slope. Because they are traitors themselves (I was assuming at the time that both Hans and ddt were Dutch, because they both seemed to be able to speak Dutch, a rare quality among non-Dutch people). They both are incurable lefties, meaning advocates of unhindered third world immigration. In effect they do the same thing as Mussert: they cooperate with an invading hostile force.

<snip>

The level of my knowledge is not that relevant. Never claimed to be an original historian. But I am an effective summarizer. And integrator of knowledge.
Another post where our little Nazi confabulator shows his ignorance of history. I'm not so sure I support the execution of Mussert. The claim he helped the enemy is quite tenuous. He was against the German occupation, rather he wanted to have an independent Netherlands (with very good ties to Germany of course). He was never a real Nazi, nor an antisemite. The Germans gave him the title "Leader of the Dutch people", but that was an empty title without any powers.

Which is why I mentioned Meinout Rost van Tonningen, who was an unreconstructed Nazi and gradually had become the most influential man within the NSB. He served in the Waffen SS on the Russian front. He was appointed director of the Dutch national bank, and as such was very eager to pay the Nazis the costs they levied for the occupation, and to trade them the Dutch gold reserves for paper German money. Needless to say, his tenure is not highly valued. I happened to visit the board room of the Dutch national bank about a year ago, and his portrait is absent from the gallery there.

the OP

4,000+ posts? To go back to the original question. Who started both World Wars? I did, OK, I'm sorry, I let my blood sugar get too low and I was cranky. I won't do it again. Can we move on now?



(Actually I am enjoying this thread and have learned more than a few things. But the thread title makes me snicker, as does the one in the 9-11 subforum about "Dave Thomas" which makes me wonder if Wendy's is somehow related to 9/11)

Cannot be said of you

Dudalb earlier in the thread opined that 'Alsace/Lorraine' was French through and through, now even the 'French' president begs to differ:

Quote:
So much for two World Wars! President Sarkozy angers French by saying Alsace region is STILL German in 'simple error'
We remember that from the perspective of the French government WW1 was fought to regain Elsass/Lotharingen from Germany and it succeeded in that aim. Now it turns out that WW1 (and as a consequence WW2 via the Versailles peace treaty) was fought over, well nothing!

Sorry about that.

Sarkozy made his remarks in the not very French sounding town of Truchtersheim.

A real French president, not having his (Jewish) roots in Hungary/Tessaloniki, would never have made such a mistake.

Welcome back to you all!

P.S. never knew that Sarko was a grass sniffer. Thought it was illegal in France.

I saw that in a documentary on the Saami (AKA Laplanders) on the Discovery channel, which was narrated by Renee Zellwenger, whose Swedish mother is of Saami descent.

Poor dudalb, it gets worse:

Hudson Institute:

C-SPAN did broadcast the Naval Institute speech as well:

Suvorov is becoming mainstream; he already is in Russia.

It doesn't matter one whit whether he becomes mainstream or not. His ideas are still flat-out wrong and unsupported by anything resembling real-world facts.

Nein-11 isn't interested in facts or history. He's interested in furthering his agenda and scoring a propaganda victory. He has all but said so outright. There's nothing to gain from further participation in this thread. Let it sink off the front page, and if Nein-11 spams it to keep it on top we'll just report him.

Interview with General Otto Ernst Remer.

English transscript.

He spoke directly with Hitler about the Polish attack:

Quote:
"Why did you really attack Poland? Couldn't you have been more patient?"
He could not. Hitler's reply:

Quote:
You are mistaken. I knew as early as March 1939 that Roosevelt had determined to bring about a world war, and I knew that the British were cooperating in this, and that Churchill was involved. God knows that I certainly did not want a world war. That's why I sought to solve the Polish problem in my own way with a kind of punishment expedition, without a declaration of war. After all, there had been thousands of murders of ethnic Germans and 1.2 million ethnic German refugees. What should I have done? I had to act. And for that reason, four weeks after this campaign, I made the most generous offer of peace that any victorious leader could ever have made. Unfortunately, it wasn't successful.
We have seen earlier in this thread that this all is true.

Furthermore he says what Suvorov said after him:

Quote:
First of all, it should be clearly understood that at the time of the Balkans campaign in Yugoslavia and Greece in early 1941, when we had ten divisions on the entire length of the Soviet border, the Russians had stationed 247 major military formations on our border. After the conclusion of the Balkans campaign, we then quickly placed at most 170 major military units on the border with the Soviet Union. The Russians had readied themselves for an attack.

The initial successes of our forces against the Soviets were due to the fact that the Russians were not stationed in defense positions, but were instead positioned right at the front for attack, which made it possible for us to quickly encircle large Soviet forces. Thus, in the first weeks of the war, we were able to capture more than three million prisoners of war as well as enormous quantities of war equipment, all of which was on the frontier, positioned for attack
Russian build-up confirmed by air-reconnaissance:

Quote:
That's the truth of the matter, which can be proven. I recently spoke with a Mr. Pemsel, who was a long-range aerial reconnaissance pilot. In the period before the beginning of the Soviet campaign, he flew as far as the Don River and observed and reported on this enormous concentration of Soviet forces on the border.
Crucial statement:

Quote:
And after he received more and more reports of Soviet preparations for an attack against Germany and Europe, Hitler reacted. I am thus absolutely certain that Hitler did not originally plan to attack the Soviet Union. Instead, he acted as the changing situation demanded.
Read his comments about Jewish and in reaction Ukrainian attrocities, later blamed on the Germans:

Quote:
No, these anti-Jewish pogroms were an expression of the outrage of the people. They hated the Jews.

In Poland as well, there were often pogroms. As you may know, in Poland.there were even pogroms against the Jews after the war. That was really something. The outrage of the people in the East against the Jews, who always portrayed themselves as decent people and good merchants, is indescribable.
About Hitler as a lover:

Quote:
I don't think he was a great lover. I don't think so. He had a cousin, Geli Raubal, during the period of struggle before he became Chancellor. Hitler wasn't able to pay enough attention to her, but she loved him, and she took her own life. I think she was the only woman that Hitler really loved.
Remer was advocating in 1990 what I am advocating now:

Quote:
A: We Germans must leave the NATO alliance. We must be militarily independent. We must create a nuclear-free zone. We must come to an understanding with the Russians... If we really come to an understanding with Russia, then it's all over for America.
Remer confirms that the Bolshevik coup was almost entirely Jewish lead, but that changed under Stalin:

Quote:
Among the Soviet leaders at that time, 97 percent were Jews. And then Stalin came to power, and politicians who pursued a [non-ideological] policy in the interests of Russia, including the "Great Patriotic War" [that is, the Second World War], which he won.

Considering that after 101 pages all we've seen are poorly constructed lies, ignorance of history and denial of what history is known what more do we have to talk about 9/11? Is there anything else you wish to demonstrate a lack of knowledge about?

Mind you, this general Remer was not a Nazi die-hard, but he was involved in the plot to kill Hitler!

Quote:
Otto Ernst Remer (1912-1997) was a German soldier during the Second World War. In July 1944 he played a key role in putting down the conspiracy to murder Hitler and seize control of the German government.
And it is him who says that Barbarossa was a forced pre-emptive attack.

So you are claiming that Soviet forces were not amassing along the western border?!

Got any evidence?

I mean, the Naval Institute and Hudson Institute are taking Suvorov seriously and C-Span as well.

And it is him who says that Barbarossa was a forced pre-emptive attack.

Did you even read your own source? It says that Remer was instrumental in stopping the plot.

Further, from a Wikipedia article on Otto Ernst RemerWP:

Quote:
Otto-Ernst Remer (18 August 1912 – 4 October 1997) was a German Wehrmacht officer who played a decisive role in stopping the 1944 20 July Plot against Adolf Hitler. After the war he co-founded the Sozialistische Reichspartei (SRP). He also advanced Holocaust denial. . . .

During this time, Remer and his men successfully stopped the 20 July plot to seize control of the German government, following the assassination attempt on Hitler. Upon being ordered by General Paul von Hase to arrest Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels, Remer went to Goebbels office to do so, pistol in hand. Goebbels, however, used his oratory skills to dissuade Remer from arresting him, insisting instead that Hitler was still alive. When Remer asked for proof, Goebbels picked up the phone and asked to be put through to Hitler. Within the minute, Hitler was on the phone, and Goebbels handed the receiver to Remer. Hitler asked Remer whether he recognized his voice, then gave Remer orders to crush the plot with his troops, which he did. That same night Remer was promoted two ranks to oberst (colonel). . . .

Remer went on to command an expanded Führer Begleit Brigade (FBB), a field unit formed from a Grossdeutschland cadre, in East Prussia with little success. His men suffered high casualties, reportedly due to his leadership. The brigade was then transferred to the west for the Ardennes Offensive, in December 1944, and again suffered high casualties for little gain.

In 1945, when the FBB was expanded to divisional status, he was promoted to generalmajor (brigadier general), and appointed to command it. He was not considered a successful division commander, for when the FBD moved to Silesia in March 1945, Remer was criticized for lack of ability once again. . . .

Remer's Socialist Reich Party, which he had co-founded in 1950, was banned in 1952, after it had gathered about 360,000 supporters in Lower Saxony, and won 16 seats in the state parliament. The Socialist Reich Party also won eight seats in the Bremen state parliament.

From 1991 to 1994, Remer put out his own publication, the Remer-Depesche. Remer was sentenced to 22 months of imprisonment in October 1992, for writing and publishing a number of articles that were said to incite "racial hatred", through their questioning of the Holocaust.
