Who Won, and Who Lost, World War II? ~ VIDEO

Opinion

USA -(Ammoland.com)- Sunday, the 80th anniversary of the Nazi invasion of Poland, Vice President Mike Pence spoke in Warsaw's Pilsudski Square of “five decades of untold suffering and death that followed” the invasion. Five decades!

What Pence was saying was that, for Poland, World War II did not end in victory but defeat and occupation by an evil empire ruled by one of the greatest mass murderers of the 20th century, Josef Stalin.

The “Liberation of Europe,” the 75th anniversary of which we celebrated at Omaha Beach on June 6, 2019, was a liberation that extended only to the Elbe River in the heart of Germany.
Beyond the Elbe, the Nazis were annihilated, but victory belonged to an equally evil ideology, for the “liberators” of Auschwitz had for decades run an archipelago of concentration camps as large as Himmler's.

So, who really won, and who lost, the war?

Winston Churchill wanted to fight for Czechoslovakia at Munich in 1938, and Britain went to war for Poland in 1939. Yet if both nations ended up under Bolshevik rule for half a century, did Britain win their freedom? And if this was the predictable result of a war in a part of Europe where Nazis confronted Bolsheviks, why did Britain even go to war?

Why did Britain declare war for a cause and country it could not defend? Why did Britain turn a German-Polish war into a world war that would surely bankrupt her and bring down her empire, while she could not achieve her declared war goal — a liberated and independent Poland?, that had been severed from Germany against the will of its 300,000 people and handed to Poland at Versailles in 1919?

Danzigers never wanted to leave Germany, and 90% wanted to return. Even the British Cabinet thought Germany had a case and Danzig should be returned.

Why then did Britain declare war?

Because Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain had insanely given the Poles a blank check, a war guarantee on March 31, 1939: If Germany uses force to retrieve Danzig, and you resist, we will fight at your side.

Britain's war guarantee guaranteed the war.

Given the cause for which their country went to war, British actions during the war seem inexplicable.

When Stalin's army invaded Poland, Sept. 17, 1939, two weeks after Hitler, Britain did not declare war on the Soviet Union.

The Polish officer corps were executed on Moscow's orders in 1940. When the bodies were unearthed in Katyn in 1943, Churchill, now an ally of Stalin, responded to the Free Poles' request to investigate the atrocity: “There is no use prowling round the three year old graves of Smolensk.”

Rather than attack Hitler after he invaded Poland, Britain and France remained behind the Maginot Line and waited until Hitler's armies stormed west on May 10, 1940, the day Churchill took power.

In three weeks, the British army had been defeated and thrown off the continent. In six weeks, France had surrendered.

After Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain in 1940, Britain refused all of Hitler's offers to end the war, holding on till June 1941, when Hitler turned on his partner Stalin and invaded the Soviet Union.

Churchill is the “man of the century” for persuading Britain to stand alone against Nazi Germany in 1940, Britain's “finest hour.”

But at war's end, what was the balance sheet of Churchill?

The Poland for which Britain had gone to war was lost to Stalinism and would remain so for the entire Cold War. Churchill would be forced to accede to Stalin's annexation of half of Poland and its incorporation into the Soviet Bloc. To appease Stalin, Churchill declared war on Finland.

Britain would end the war bombed, bled and bankrupt, with her empire in Asia, India, the Mideast and Africa disintegrating. In two decades it would all be gone.

France would end the war after living under Nazi occupation and Vichy rule for five years, lose her African and Asian empire and then sustain defeats and humiliation in Indochina in 1954 and Algeria in 1962.

Who really won the war?

Certainly, the Soviets who, after losses in the millions from the Nazi invasion, ended up occupying Berlin, having annexed the Baltic states and turned Eastern Europe into a Soviet base camp, though Stalin is said to have remarked of a 19th-century czar, “Yes, but Alexander I made it to Paris!”

The Americans, who stayed out longest, ended the war with the least losses of any great power. Yet, America is a part of the West, and the West was the loser of the world wars of the last century.

Indeed, the two wars between 1914 and 1945 may be seen as the Great Civil War of the West, the Thirty Years War of Western Civilization that culminated in the loss of all the Western empires and the ultimate conquest of the West by the liberated peoples of their former colonies.

Ah yes, Mr. Roosevelt’s war. Japan forced our hand on December 7th. I guess some believe that with the addition of Japan to the Axis, Nazi Germany would automatically declare war on US, while some may wonder what Hitler had to gain by declaring war on the US at all? Before December 7th, 1941 the US was a neutral country. We stretched that status to the breaking point because the US Navy had been engaged in a defacto war with Germany in the Atlantic while we claimed neutral status. And I’m not just talking about shipping convoys. How much threat… Read more »

Hitler was working on an atomic bomb, if the Brits hadn’t put that work to a halt things would have been different. He was also working on an airplane that could have been used to deliver that A-bomb to the U.S. It was just like our B-2 bomber but with propellers.

According to the recent writings of a prominent Churchillian historian, Uncle Joe and FDR stuck together and shut Churchill out. It was Churchill’s aim to attack up through the narrow gap to the north/northeast of Italy to ensure that the soviet forces could not pull off the coup they eventually did. Thank FDR, then, for that failure to back his meter ally. FDR wanted to ensure that the Allies would attack the beaches along the coast of France, which is what they eventually did. And then, after winning that effort, they bogged down on the way east — and so… Read more »

Having read quite a bit about this, especially WWII, and watching documentaries, it is my opinion that Stalin knew Japan was going to attack the U. S., UK etc.
I read an op-ed recently where it was implied that the isolationist attitude in America changed when the Nazi’s invaded Russia.
Had the West realized Stalin’s true intentions it would have been pragmatic to have backed the Nazi’s and let the socialist and communist annihilate each other.

Except FDR was America’s first socialist president and he really DID want us in the war… which is why he backed Japan into a corner so tightly that he guaranteed the Japs would commit the first act of aggression. Kinda like how the Union forced the Confederacy to make the fateful first move at Ft. Sumpter.

All 10 planks of the communist manifesto have been achieved in the USSA. Comrade Bernie & Comrade Alexandria and all their cohorts are just simply trying to complete the “revolution”.

We need to go Full Pinochet on all these commies. We need a hard reset!

The first move of the Confederacy was not at Fort Sumpter! It was at Smithville North Carolina.

FDR was not the first socialist president, think back to which ones fought against corporate monopolies.

Outstanding article on Pence’s wonderful speech and on the questions regarding WWII and Post-WWII. When Germany declared war upon the U.S. immediately after Pearl Harbor when we declared war on Japan, Stalin had already murdered over 20 million Soviet Citizens. We like to think we took the high ground by condemning Hitler’s atrocities (which took place long after Stalin’s) and helping Stalin win against Hitler. The right thing (in retrospect – hindsight is always 20/20) would have been to NOT aided Stalin, let Hitler destroy him and then go after Hitler, but that was not the way it was. Would… Read more »

All this proves is if you don’t know your history you’re bound to repeat it. And so it goes:

Trump the Traitor is at it again. Kowtowing to Google and other social media platforms. The only thing Chump has proven to me in spite of having voted for him – TALK IS CHEAP – and like ALL politicians, he’s in bed with them and behind the coming overthrow of this once beautiful country.

Don’t believe everything that you read! Commies like to create confusion to better achieve their goals! Get the populist fighting amongst them selves, then provide a solution to all of the fighting so they can take over.

You are right!! I saw him in a training film on how to determine if the airplane that you are about to shoot down is American or Jap!
