America Blind to Threats in World War II

Thursday, 28 April 2005 12:00 AM

The mood changed in March 1939 when Hitler grabbed the rest of Czechoslovakia, and then invaded Poland; then, in 1940, routed France within days (along with the British Expeditionary Force); and finally, in June 1941 invaded Russia to convert her enormous natural resources into vast armed forces capable of invading the United States.

In mid-October Hitler reached Moscow, and Stalin ordered his subordinates to flee. Moscow had actually surrendered – there were no Soviet authorities, no police, and anyone could enter any store and carry away free whatever he or she fancied.

What about the United States?

In the presidential election campaign of 1940, both candidates – FDR (Democrat) and Wendell Wilkie (Republican) vied with each other to convince the electorate that never – never ever – would they let America participate in a "foreign war."

At that time it was believed that Hitler was right-wing and Stalin left-wing. To give one example showing the absurdity of this belief, let me recall that Stalin began to foster Russian nationalism and Russian Orthodox Christianity in 1943 and planned to become, as a Byzantine emperor once was, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Yet the belief in Hitler as representing the right wing vs. Stalin as representing the left wing persisted, and while the Democrat FDR "gravitated" to Stalin (the first lady visited Stalin's Russia and wrote a book praising it to the skies), the Republican Wilkie "gravitated" to Hitler. FDR won – yet by a closer margin than ever before.

Why be surprised that the U.S. political establishment today has been blind to the "China and Russia threat" of development of geostrategically decisive superweapons? From 1939 to 1941, a world war had already been raging – Hitler could take Moscow in October 1941 without a single shot being fired. But it was all "a foreign war," you see. Never ever!

It was clear that without U.S. military supplies, England and Soviet Russia would collapse. At the same time neither country could pay for these supplies. What was to be done? You do not mean, do you, that the supplies should have been given free?! To foreigners for their foreign war!

A way was finally found. The supplies should not be given free of charge, but should be LENT! LEND-LEASE, you see?

FDR still swore, to the thunderous applause of the Congress, that never ever ... But on December 7, 1941, Japan attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor, and on December 11, Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy declared war on the United States.

My Britannica has a photograph (vol. 19, p. 605) depicting FDR and captioned: "President Roosevelt asking Congress to declare war on Japan on Dec. 8, 1941."

As of December 8, 1941, Japan was at war with the United States. It had attacked the United States. But FDR was ASKING Congress to declare war on Japan – on Dec. 8, 1941, the United States was not yet at war with Japan, to say nothing of Germany and Italy.

The Pearl Harbor attack by Japan was so successful since the United States had "slept" – no one publicly audible had conjectured that Japan MIGHT attack Pearl Harbor. There had been no intelligence/espionage vis-a-vis Japan. But when Japan had attacked, it was not yet war – FDR was ASKING Congress to declare it!

What if Japan had not attacked Pearl Harbor, and Germany and Italy had not declared war on the United States? What if Russia had collapsed in October 1941, and England had soon followed suit (unable to withstand the Nazi armed forces, transferred from the no longer existing Russian front)? With Nazi help from the former Russia, Japan would have completed the conquest of China. Thus, all of Eurasia would have become allies or colonies of Hitler's Germany and Tojo's Japan.

As for "the atom bomb," its possibility became clear in 1938. FDR ignored Einstein's letter about this possibility for two months, until the desperate Jewish emigre nuclear scientists found "our man in the White House" to draw FDR's attention to Einstein's letter. But it was only in 1942 that the Manhattan Project went into full-capacity operation, as the Nazi troops had reached the Volga.

Incidentally, the FBI did not admit Einstein to the Manhattan Project. Vigilance!

Had not Hitler launched in 1939 a conventional war, but had concentrated all the resources on HIS "Manhattan Project," he would have developed "the atom bomb" ahead of the United States, which would have had to surrender unconditionally to Hitler's Germany, as did Japan to the United States.
