The end of WWI anomaly

To be sure, WWI ended just as oddly as it had started. When, in October 1918, the Americans and their allies breached the Siegfried Line, which, by the way, was in France, not Germany, the Germans stopped fighting. The Central Powers just rolled over and immediately signed the Armistice on November 11th, 1918. How very bizarre! Were the mighty Prussians wimps in disguise, or was HR’s FED forcing them to stop by withholding credit? Why didn’t the Allies pursue and push this invading army of monsters back into Germany? Millions were killed in abominable conditions in a war of attrition that devastated much of northern France, and the victorious Allies are content to say, “Okay, guys, it’s over. You can go home now.” Very odd behavior indeed!

In 1917, something must have gone wrong with the WWI plan. HR’s FED had no doubt planned for the Americans to enter the war and pierce the Western Front while the victorious Bolsheviks attacked from the East. The intent, of course, was to crush Imperial Germany. But it didn’t happen. Lenin decided to quit the war, instead. So, with no Eastern Front and after four years of apocalyptic trench warfare in France, HR’s FED obviously decided to let everybody take a breather and get at Imperial Germany some other day. If Lenin died in 1924 of gunshot wounds sustained in a 1918 assassination attempt, it was likely because he had failed, or maybe had even double-crossed HR’s FED.

 

That’s why HR’s FED had to immediately sit down at the drawing board and prepare for WWII. Since the Treaty of Versailles signed in 1919 was the worst possible peace treaty imaginable, we can be sure that lasting peace was not its main purpose. All the statesmen had to be from la-la land in order to give their approval to such terms. The thirty-three billion dollars of war reparations the allies imposed on Germany couldn’t possibly be repaid and everybody knew it. Furthermore, when the Allies split Germany in two by creating the Polish Corridor, they profoundly humiliated the whole German population. Such decisions on the part of the allies were more than enough to set the wheels in motion for WWII within Germany.

Napoleon, Russia and Gold

In 1803, gold was discovered in the Urals, in Russia. It was well known that the Tsar wanted to keep it a secret, for he didn’t want the serf population to start a gold rush. However, in 1812, Rothschild and his five boys already possessed most of the gold bullion available in Europe, and Nathan was setting the world price for gold bullion out of the City in London. Is it a stretch to think the latter knew there was gold in the Urals? Is it possible that Nathan got Napoleon to stake out a claim to the region? Could Tsar Alexander have known that Napoleon’s campaign was about gold and that the Rothschilds were financing it? Could that be one of the reasons why there was so much anti-Semitism in Tsarist Russia?

We know that the Rothschilds financed all parties during the Napoleonic Wars, and that included Wellington and Napoleon. We know Napoleon started the Russian campaign in June, 1812, and that he was heading into a Russian winter, which made absolutely no sense. We know he had no valid reason for going to Moscow, and after conquering it, we know the city had been burned and stripped of supplies and was a deadly place to be. Knowing that he could easily have gone on to Saint Petersburg to defeat the Tsar and winter his troops in that city, why did he twirl his thumbs in Moscow for a whole five weeks? And where did the 22,000 troops he sent on a secret mission go? We can only assume the plan was not to defeat Russia. If Napoleon waited in Moscow, it had to be for a very good reason and since it wasn’t for military gain, it had to be for gold. If Napoleon waited five weeks with his supplies practically exhausted, it’s because he was waiting for an answer from the Tsar, to whom he had issued some kind of ultimatum. Most likely, after receiving assurances from Tsar Alexander regarding the Urals gold fields, Napoleon decided to spare Saint Petersburg and take off as fast as he could for home. And if he took the direct way back, knowing full well the countryside was totally devastated and that winter was around the corner, it was perhaps because he was overly anxious to communicate the positive results, and in his haste to get back to civilization, he gambled that he would make it home before winter set in. As for the 22,000 men he had sent on a special mission, we can only guess where they went. They probably succeeded in staking out a claim to the gold fields and stayed on to maintain control over them, for 1812 was the year the Tsar authorized “private companies” to mine for gold in the Urals.

When trying to understand something that doesn’t make sense, it’s always advisable to follow the money trail. Militarily, the invasion of Russia didn’t make any sense, but the staking out of the Urals gold fields did.
