From: News with Views, If War Had Not Come in Fierce and Exaggerated Form, by Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
A new movie, Valkyrie, with Tom Cruise has just premiered, and in an interview Cruise said he was surprised by the openness of Col. Claus von Stauffenberg (the character Cruise plays) in discussing his plot to kill Hitler in 1944. What Cruise and most people don’t understand is that Hitler’s ability to begin and wage WWII were facilitated by the Power Elite (PE)!
From the American perspective, the PE’s use of wars goes back over 200 years. The PE was concerned that the young American Republic was too independent of their control. I’ve mentioned in previous columns Philip Freneau’s article in AMERICAN MUSEUM in 1792 describing how the PE would regain control of the U.S., and their use of a war and its predetermined outcome. I’ve also already described how the Civil War was designed to create a Gulf Empire, splitting the South from the rest of the U.S.
On February 5, 1891 Cecil Rhodes as a member of the PE began his secret Society of the Elect after writing to his close friend W.T. Stead that his (Rhodes’) idea would “ultimately lead to the cessation of all wars. . . . The only thing feasible to carry this idea out is a secret one (society) gradually absorbing the wealth of the world to be devoted to such an object. . . . Fancy the charm to young America. . . to share in a scheme to take the government of the whole world!” Among Rhodes’ Association of Helpers (AH) were two Germans, Helmuth James von Moltke and Adam von Trott zu Solz. The AH formed Round Table groups, out of which would come the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), largely funded by J.P. Morgan interests.
World War I was manufactured by the PE for the purpose of creating the first attempt at a world government (the League of Nations). PE agent Col. Edward House in the CFR’s FOREIGN AFFAIRS (June 1923) wrote that “if war had not come in fierce and exaggerated form,” the League would not have materialized. In John Kenneth Turner’s SHALL IT BE AGAIN? (1922), one finds that the J.P. Morgan firm had drawn up plans to scare Americans into joining the war….
When the League failed to produce the desired world government, then a Second World War had to be manufactured to produce the United Nations, which was discussed long before the end of WWII. American (e.g., J.P. Morgan) and British banks funded German industries such as I.G. Farben from Hitler’s early days. According to G. Edward Griffin, Farben “was the primary source of funding for Hitler (and) staffed and directed Hitler’s intelligence section and ran the Nazi slave labor camps. . . . During the Allied bombing raids over Germany, the factories and administrative buildings of I.G. Farben were spared upon instructions from the U.S. War Department.” The War Department widely was staffed by agents of the PE, who had worked for Rockefeller’s National City Bank, Rockefeller’s Dillon, Read & Company, J.P Morgan’s Equitable Trust, etc. …
No-win wars like in Korea and Vietnam were planned as well. In U.S.A. magazine (May 1951), Gen. Douglas MacArthur revealed: “I am convinced I was restrained in Korea by some secret Administration policy directive or strategy about which I was not informed.” The PE through its agent, Gen. George Marshall, facilitated the Chinese Communists coming to power in 1949. This was because as State Department Study Memorandum No. 7 (published under Rhodes scholar Secretary of State Dean Rusk in 1961) stated: “If the Communist dynamic was greatly abated, the West might lose whatever incentive it has for world government.”
The American loss in Vietnam (remember Freneau’s 1792 revelation about planned war losses) was to undermine patriotism, thus making a world government more acceptable. …
Thus, it was critical to have a war involving Iraq…. Of course, there was an American military response to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait, and President Bush delivered his famous “Toward a New World Order” address to Congress on September 11, 1990.
