World War II From Space

Tyler Durden's picture

With tensions raging in Asia (and the Middle East) and the anniversary of the start of World War I drawing closer, we thought it contextually useful to look at World War II from a different (and more broad) perspective. This History Channel documentary shows - using an all-seeing CGI eye - a satellite view of the conflicts, allowing you to experience it in a way that places key events and tipping points in a global perspective. By re-creating groundbreaking moments that could never have been captured on camera and by illustrating the importance of simultaneity and the hidden effects of crucial incidents, the war's monumental moments in never- before-seen context. And with new information brought to the forefront, you'll better understand how a nation ranked 19th in the world's militaries in 1939 emerged six years later as the planet's only atomic superpower.

WWII only started because Hitler was running out of gold.

Today NATO has the same problem though ironically Germany is the one with legal entitlement and it is France, the US and UK who are raiding central bank vaults (Libya, BoE etc)

Big emphasis of success is given to America's intelligence early on in the film. NSA propaganda anyone?

Many of us have different opinions about WWII, but we all agree on one thing. It was not how it was sold to the world.

The truth most likely is somewhere between all of your comments and beyond.

StandardDeviant's picture

Well, maybe SSA (Signal Security Agency).  The NSA wasn't created until 1952.

I'd go further and say it was the greatest scam in history.  I've spent close to ten years researching it and in essence everything I used to believe has been proven wrong.

FDR practically dared them to attack and solve his unemployment problem!

Dick Buttkiss's picture

No, he engineered it. 

Just as the Bushama adminstration is engineering our entrance into WWIII.

Frozen IcQb's picture

Yes. Fortunately, Iran has learned from the Japanese mistake.

Hopefully, others will keep their calm as well.

Smooth entrance of women into the work force. More cars, (auto transmission) more coka cola, more blue jeans and more consumption.

Now they even sell you dirty used blue jeans for triple the price of the standard. The sheeple we are.

The patent is the same "bread and theater", only the mode changes "electronic games and eternal o'benefits" 

old naughty's picture

Don't know about the eternal part but games we got, like them drones.

And smoothing women into the work force ---combatantly. Changing the yin-yang balance 'eternally' (eh, may be temporally).

WW2 started because France (and England) declared war on Germany NOT the other way around. And then complained about having to fight the germans and almost losing.

The banks.

SHOW ME the banks.

This video is useless, without the PROGENITORS.

I turned it off as soon as he said "Japan attacked unprovoked". 

Frozen IcQb's picture

FDR did just about everything to start a fight.

Unemployment was rampant in the US and war would solve FDR's popularity problem if he could get people back to work and blame the war on the other guy!

The Japanese were stupid, impatient and got sucked-in!


The world is one big chess game and the pawns are clueless!

old naughty's picture

guess FDR was told he'd get them bases from Churchill, setting the stage for the next Big One?

So he went along with letting the Emperor's navy attack with a little bit success (don't forget the flattops are all left port)?

Pawns, well, "Here It Is !" (ooops, "I shall return").

New stage, same bunch of pawns (or aliens among us), now readying for the next Big One.

Rafferty's picture

Yes.  FDR was told that if he began to starve Japan of oil they would be forced into war. Two weeks after the meeting that considered the report he gave those very instructions.  The rest, as they say, is history.

Umh's picture

I heard that too. A minute or so later he gets into the embargo.

"WWII only started because Hitler was running out of gold."


Wrong, Mr. Hoarder.


After the injustice of the Versailles Treaty and the ensuing inflation of the Weimar Republic, Germany had its gold stolen and therefore it wasn't there when Hitler began his term as Chancellor.  


In truth, war against Germany was inevitable once Hitler showed the world what economic miracles an honest non-debt-based currency could inspire.  This, the International Usurers could not permit.  If the example became widely understood by the other Western nations, their global Ponzi scheme would have been quickly kaput.


And don't let people tell you that it was "because Hitler immediately ordered a massive re-armament program" either.  Not until 1936 did military expenditures really begin to rise (especially with the rebirth of the Luftwaffe).  Up to that point, great public works programs like the Autobahn were put into affect... and because the Mark was revalued based on the labor of the German people - the bane of usury was lifted from the backs of the Deutsche Volk.  By 1938, Germany enjoyed 100% employment.  Compare that to the other First-World nations of the time - all wallowing in a hopeless sea of debt.

MontgomeryScott's picture

Say, Bach,

Where did you get this statement from?

"By 1938, Germany enjoyed 100% employment."

Just wondering, do you work for the U.S. Bureau Of Labor Statistics? I have to say, this statement is one of those which mirrors the numbers here almost EXACTLY. WE have a 93.3% 'labor participation rate', according to THEM, almost rivaling Der Fuhrer!

Well, I suppose you could be correct. Those who didn't agree with the politics were employed as well, in Hitler's Germany. Perhaps they weren't paid quite as much, but they DID work...

If a currency is 'non-debt-based', it is based on...WHAT, exactly? The 'good faith and credit of the government of the ... (insert name of shadow government here)'?

J S Bach's picture

I'm not an economist, Montgomery, but I found this article which answers your questions pretty well.


Scroll down toward the middle for the explanation on what Hitler based the mark on... "Labor Treasury Certificates".  The whole concept is quite ingenious... especially for a people as industrious as the Germans.  And more importantly, it worked - unfailingly.  Case closed.


Also, I apologize for the exaggerated comment about 100% employment... it was actually something like 99.99%.

TBT or not TBT's picture

So who were hitler's "useless eaters" then?

Chupacabra-322's picture

Spot on! "This, the International Usurers could not permit"

I would add that this, The Global Criminal Oligarch Cabal Bankster Intelligence Crime Syndicate could not permit. Germany understood the threat Zionists would pose. It's was an ideology it attempted to rid itself from.

A great historical document...

Nice.  Going to download this book and give a listen while I do my pissed off cardio.

Jay Rockefeller said it would be better if the internet never existed, for good reason.  While most boomers are hopelessly brainwashed at this point, they are starting to die out.  I have personally opened the eyes of many of my fellow millenials, and we aren't buying the old bullshit dogma anymore.  9/11 may have seemed like a successful false flag for International Zionism in the short run, but in the long run it will prove to be their undoing.  I put a short video together of the most damning evidence from the "new Pearl Harbor" if you care to have a look.

"You guys" -should- be alarmed...because when the game is known, people get pissed. The author of the book that I linked to does an exceptional job of laying out the game. He explains "the magicians trick" detail.

Why do you think "you guys" been thrown out of more than 85 countries? Has any ONE of you in all of history tried to figure this out?


Foreman is hanging out at the pub after work with one of the new guys, having a beer or three. The rumor on the shop floor is that the new guy has been married and divorced 85 times.

Foreman: "I hear you've been married and divorced 85 times. Is that true?"

New guy: "Yep, sure is."

Foreman: "So, what's the story?"

New guy: "They were all bitches."


Uh, yeah...riiight.

WW2 was a direct conequence of the position Germany was put into as a result of WW1. As soon as the British Royal Navy switched from coal to oil powered ships, the message was clear - he who controls the oil, controls the industrial world. It was all going to be about the internal combustion engine and the fuel to run it. There was an explosion of oil-powered tech and refinement byproduct use in the early 1900's.

Germany and eventually Japan became the industrial leaders unmatched by the competition. Unfortunately, like the British, the French and the Americans, they had no oil producing lands or colonis. For them it was all or nothing, in the quest to secure trade routes.

When the biggest oil reserves in the world were discovered in Saudi Arabia around 1904, Germany started laying railroad tracks directrly to the extraciton points. The line was called The Orient Express and it was almost finished. Came within 100km of the target and then the massive sabotage campaigns began, with the Brits and the French deploying devisions as far as Basrah, dismantling the tracks and putting roadblocks.

The message was clear that the project wasn't going to happen. That might've been the single most important reason behind WW1 - the Orient Express line.

Eventually, since every problem Germany tried to resolve through military aciton in response to provocation, only got aggrivated, Germany tried again. By then the world had already been diveded in oil-haves and oil-have not's. Japan was on par with Germany in terms of industrialization but also had squat for oil. They were trying to secure paths to oil through the hostile East, but were too small for the task. The strategic decision to strike the US in response to embargo's was a mistake, but Japan had no options either way. It was all-or-nothing campaigns, exactly as the movie says.

Why Japan and Germany? Simple! Lots of factories, best railroad networks, highest levels of education... no fuel and and international opposition to their peaceful pursuit of trade.

Back then Saudi's would've given an arm and a leg to have direct access to German and Japanese tech. They would've been trading gas for oil exactly as we do now. Deutchmark would've been the petro-dollar. Instead we figured out very quickly what they were trying to do and busted the competition by putting a bigger and better monopoly in place.

BTW: Japan and Germany had and still have the highest labor productivity rate anywhere.

Winston Churchill: "You must understand that this war is not against Hitler or National Socialism, but against the strength of the German people, which is to be smashed once and for all, regardless of whether it is in the hands of Hitler or a Jesuit priest."

Emrys Hughes, Winston Churchill - His Career in War and Peace, p. 145

UnpatrioticHoarder's picture

The Third Reich was nearly broke before WWII started. The level of government debt was a state secret! Austria was annexed for its central bank gold. His subsequent invasions were in pursuit of gold. Nothing you say refutes any of this. Have you even read the link?

The Jew-haters are out in force on Zero Hedge. What a pathetic lot you are.

Hugh G Rection's picture

Actually Judea declared war on Germany in 1933. Sound crazy? Hey what does this say...?

"WW2 started because France (and England) declared war on Germany NOT the other way around."


But Poland was invaded by Germany, first.  Context.

shepherd's picture

A war with Poland does not make a World War.

Rafferty's picture

Was invaded by Germany AND the Soviet Union at the same time.  Yet Germany became the enemy and the SU an ally (later on).  Strange, no?

MOAR context.

Johnny Cocknballs's picture

Yes, Polish independence was so important to the Allies they let the Russians basically keep it after the war along with a handful of other countries.

/sarc, as it were.

It was never about Germany retaking what had essentially been German/Prussian land for hundreds of years before ww1... I don't get your junks.  Are people upset with the recitation of facts?  What the fuck are you supposed to say, that Germany started the war by invading Britain?

Presumably the British feared economic competition.  The omnipresent "Rothschilds" get blame of course but none of the 'evidence' of their alleged responsibility seems to be more than totem pole hearsay.  It's one thing to proclaim that all wars are bankers wars [cuz like, nationalism and religion never played a role, eh? Who were the Vikings' bankers, again?] and another to demonstrate it.


I was never taught about the atrocities committed against German civilians and POWs after the war, and they lied to me about Iraq, and 9/11 and are lying about Syria, so, at very least, the 6 million figure is very much on the table unless and until someone can provide a solid evidentiary basis for that figure.  What I've seen is wild conjecture backed up with the "antisemite" card...  accept it, or you're a jew hater, blah blah.  How about just providing the same fuckin' evidence we expect of literally every other historical assertion?

That's all.  I have no problem believing Nazi scum would execute people en masse.  But I also have no problem believing the allies and world jewry/zionists could grossly inflate the figure and even make things up for any number of reasons.

Hundreds of years eh! I think you will find that the German/Prussian land was actually an Occupation. Polish borders were re-established after WWII.
