The American Renaissance: Chapter Thirteen, The New World Order, Part Two
By Michael Moriarty
A proven military power at the start of the 20th Century. Japan, ostensibly democratic, had also signed onto The League of Nations.
What became even more shockingly dangerous, however? Most Japanese treated their Emperor as a living God.
Why the 20th Century Germans of Europe chose to treat their Fuhrer as if he were the same deity to whom all of Japan also bowed?! Two, similarly bewitched nations form what ultimately becomes a double-suicide pact?!
Why didn’t they both surrender earlier? Germany should have given up just after their inevitable retreat from the Battle of the Bulge! Japan, after the first atomic bomb had been dropped on Hiroshima!
Why did Hitler and Company, while they had the chance to surrender to the Americans, wait for the Soviets to take bloody revenge in Berlin?!
BBC told the Tale of Revenge!
The Third Reich’s early surrender to England and America would have saved the German people, particularly their women, from a lot of Marxist Genghis Khans.
Why did Japan’s Emperor have any hope of victory at all after the swift and sudden execution of 40,000 Japanese in one fell swoop at Hiroshima?
Then again, both nations chose to solve major economic and “lebensraum” problems by invading their neighbors.
Japan first chose China.
The Third Reich chose to steal a few parcels of old land and invade a whole assortment of European nations during the beginning of their seemingly endless assault upon all of life itself.
Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan? Ferociously Siamese suicides! Psychotically dueling seppuku!! Competitive hara-kiri!!!
While Fascist Italy?! Bizarrely along for the suicidal ride.
A gang of wandering Al Capone’s, out looking for a particularly good Costume Ball.
As for the very, very English, World War II in Color?
The British Empire’s compulsive shots at the United States for their “Imperialism”?
Particularly in The Pacific.
“Imperial America” and “Right-wing Adolf Hitler”!
The Brits have always secretly resented Winston Churchill for being half-American and being able to spot British Marxists anywhere!
Meanwhile, the Brits point out that America, in the Twenties, was too caught up with success and the Jazz Age than to be at all disturbed by Japan’s own, increasingly ruthless imperialism.
London’s narrator says, “America seems lost to the increasing pursuit of pleasure!”
In 1922, both Italy and Germany were ripe with anarchy; and eagerly awaiting their own Doomsday Machines.
They both leaped into the arms of The Lucifer Brothers, Adolf and Benito.
Both Mussolini and Hitler knew how to capture their nations’ imaginations, loyalty and, as it turned out, their dying gratitude!
Their suicidal criminality!!
Ironically, the Italian Mafia was, “more or less”, eliminated by Mussolini.
Like Germany, the Italian military was expanded and empowered!
Both armies, navies and air forces, under the control of these two record-breaking gangsters, began History’s deadliest war.
Apparently, Il Duce wished to recreate the Roman Empire.
While Hitler merely wanted to run the whole World.
Mussolini began the quest with eyes on Africa.
Abyssinia to be precise.
He began this quest in 1934.
Emperor Haile Selassie of Abyssinia appealed to The League of Nations.
The League condemned Italy but its sanctions had no effect. Italy ignored the condemnation and pulled Italy out of The League of Nations.
He then invaded Abyssinia and conquered it!
With gas bombs that had been outlawed at Versailles as a “crime against humanity”!
Meanwhile, in 1935, Hitler re-occupied the Saarland.
The League of Nations was repeatedly proven to be helpless and basically, as a governing body of any kind, a fraud!
More importantly, both England and France, at that time, proved that they no longer had the will to fight.
Both nations had never really recovered yet from World War I.
Both had faced post-war strikes, unrest and mass unemployment.
Both were then determined to say out of future conflicts.
France, under Marshall Pétain, continued her appeasement!
England, under Winston Churchill, God bless him, fought!
Battled like fogged-in tigers and lions!!
