“Murder as Tough Love”—the origins: 24 July 1943-24 July 2016 marks 73 Years since the RAF Firebombing of Hamburg, the start of the Hailstorm

On July 24, 1929, the Kellogg-Briand Pact, renouncing or “outlawing” war as an instrument of foreign policy, allegedly “went into effect”, having been signed in Paris on August 27 of the previous year.  Traditional International Law, including the first three “Geneva Conventions” of 1864, 1906, and 1929, had all recognized the legitimacy of warfare.  The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland signed all of these treaties.

But by some odd or incredible irony:

ON July 24, 1943, the British and the Royal Air Force, supported by their American allies, quite unilaterally turned off the lights of justice, cancelled and nullified the historic laws of war among civilized nations, and started the firebombing of German Cities, which would ultimately culminate (at least conceptually) in the incineration of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the newly invented atom bombs of the Americans.   It simply cannot be said that these were anything other than heinous war crimes.

OPERATION GOMORRAH: The nightmare of  the first firebombing at Hamburg is little known to the American people.  The culmination of this program in the firebombing of Dresden was only that—two months and two weeks before the end of the War, on Valentine’s Day 1944, the concept of “Murder as Tough Love” reached its pinnacle, as the British “loved” the people of one of the greatest and most cultured cities of all Europe “to death.”  

I strongly recommend this film to anyone willing to see “the rest of the story” as Paul Harvey used to say in his daily radio broadcasts.  How much you can stand to see is up to you, but World War II was NOT a “Good War”—it was a war of lies and deception whose sole purpose was the absolute destruction of Ancient Europe and its Traditions.  World War II was a “Historical Metaphor” meant to illustrate and serve as the foundation for many “Mythic Realities.”  

Trained in Anthropology and History, I feel it is my absolute obligation to turn the critical lens of structuralism and hermeneutic deconstruction on the history of the past 175 years since the birth of Marxism after the publication of the Communist Manifesto and the  pan-European uprisings of 1848.  

Revising the popular culture, the people’s understanding of the history of World War II is critical this year to understanding why we must reverse the course of history by adhering to Righteousness and Honor and the Truth Above all.

Aside from my background in Anthropology & History, I also have a background in law, and I think it is no minor point that in the “War Crimes'” Trials after the war, the rules of evidence were utterly and totally suspended so that a false story could be told and false myths supported through lies.  Anglo-American Justice has never recovered, I do not think, from the culture of lies hatched at Nuremberg.  

So in closing I will just offer another video endorsing a revisionist view of and perspective on the history of World War II:
