What part will your country play in World War III?

By Larry Romanoff


The true origins of the two World Wars have been deleted from all our history books and replaced with mythology. Neither War was started (or desired) by Germany, but both at the instigation of a group of European Zionist Jews with the stated intent of the total destruction of Germany. The documentation is overwhelming and the evidence undeniable. (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11)


That history is being repeated today in a mass grooming of the Western world’s people (especially Americans) in preparation for World War IIIwhich I believe is now imminent. It is evident that War Clouds are gathering. The signs are everywhere, with media coverage and open talk of war in many countries. The RAND Corporation have for years been preparing military scenarios for World War III, and NATO is reported to be currently doing so. Vast movements of NATO troops and equipment are either in preparation or process to surround Russia. The US is surrounding China with military bases including the world's largest in Guam. Both China and Russia are surrounded with nearly 400 US biological weapons labs. Iran is entirely vulnerable from the American military build-up in the Middle East.

Empire, Intervention, and the Intentional Sacrifice of U.S. Soldiers

Empire, Intervention, and the Intentional Sacrifice of U.S. Soldiers

On April 9, 1942, 12,000 U.S. troops paid the price of U.S. empire and intervention when they surrendered to Japanese forces at Bataan, Philippines. During the resulting “Bataan death march,” 600 of them died, and then another 1,000 died after they were transported to Japanese POW camps.
The Constitution called into existence a limited-government republic. No Pentagon, no CIA, and no NSA. Just a relatively small military force. No foreign military empire, no foreign colonies, and no U.S. military bases in foreign countries. That system lasted for more than a century.
By the same token, the original foreign policy of the United States was one of non-intervention in the affairs of other nations. No coups, foreign wars of aggression, foreign aid, state-sponsored assassinations, alliances with foreign regimes, or regime-change operations. That system too lasted about a century.
Notwithstanding the horrors of slavery, America’s limited-government structure and its non-imperialist, non-interventionist foreign policy were among the factors that led to the greatest and longest surge  in liberty, peace, prosperity, and standards of living in history.
The Spanish American War
The turn toward empire and intervention began with the Spanish American War, a watershed event that would lead to those 12,000 U.S. troops surrendering to Japanese forces almost 45 years later. The argument was that in order to be a great nation, America needed to acquire overseas colonies, just like the British and Spanish Empires.
During the Spanish-American War, Filipinos were fighting for independence from Spain. The U.S. government intervened in the conflict, with the ostensible aim of helping the Filipinos win their independence. It was a lie, one that the Filipinos discovered soon after Spain capitulated. In fact, the real aim of U.S. officials was simply to replace Spanish rule with U.S rule.
The Filipinos decided to keep fighting, this time for independence from the United States. U.S. forces brutally put down the revolt, killing and torturing hundreds of thousands of Filipinos in the process. After the U.S. conquest of the Philippines, U.S. officials took military control over the islands, constructed many military bases, and stationed thousands of U.S. troops there.
That’s why those 12,000 U.S. troops were there when Japan attacked the islands. The turn toward empire and intervention in 1898 put U.S. forces there and had kept them there for more than four decades of U.S. colonial rule.
World War I
The Spanish American War was followed by U.S. intervention into World War I. There had been no invasion of the United States. Nonetheless, President Wilson decided that he would intervene in the war with two aims: (1) to put a permanent stop to European wars by defeating Germany decisively; and (2) making the world “safe for democracy.” To accomplish is war aims, Wilson had to conscript (i.e, force) American men into fighting his war.
It was a disaster, and the American people knew it. More than 50,000 American men were killed in combat, and for nothing. Despite the total victory achieved against Germany, within a short time Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party rose to power in Germany, and war clouds were forming over Europe once again. So much for Wilson’s “war to end all wars” and to “make the world safe for democracy.”
World War II
Not surprisingly, the American people were overwhelmingly dead-set against U.S. involvement in another European war. President Franklin Roosevelt said he was too, as reflected by his statement to the American people during his 1940 presidential campaign, “I have said this before, but I shall say it again and again and again: Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars.”
It was a lie. In fact, Roosevelt was secretly trying to do everything he could to embroil the United States in the war.

So, why didn’t FDR simply send U.S. troops into battle, as U.S. presidents do today? During that time, presidents were still complying with the declaration-of-war provision in the U.S. Constitution, a provision that interventionists today say is “antiquated.” That provision prohibits the president from waging war against another nation-state without first securing a declaration of war from Congress. The Framers inserted that provision to protect the American people from presidents who were overeager to embroil the nation into war.
Roosevelt knew that there was no way he could persuade Congress to declare war against either Germany or Japan. That’s because the American people were overwhelmingly against entry into anther of Europe’s perpetual wars.
However, the wily and persistent Roosevelt did not give up. At first he tried his best to goad Germany into attacking U.S. vessels. His plan was to announce, “We have been attacked! Now, give me my declaration of war!” But the Germans had no interest in once again going to war against the United States. They refused to take FDR’s bait.
A back door to war
That’s when the wily and persistent Roosevelt went into the Pacific, with the aim of finding a “back door” to the European conflict. To goad the Japanese into attacking the United States, he engaged in a series of actions designed to squeeze and humiliate them, none of which were authorized by the Constitution. Such steps included the seizure of Japanese assets in the United States and, more important, a total embargo on oil, which Roosevelt knew the Japanese desperately needed for their military campaign in China. FDR also deliberately set humiliating demands on Japanese officials as part of “peace” negotiations, knowing full well that they would never accept them.
Roosevelt and his cohorts knew that their efforts were paying off because they had broken the Japanese diplomatic codes and were reading their communications, which were suggesting that war was a virtual certainty.
In the abundance of precaution, Roosevelt could have ordered the withdrawal of all 12,000 U.S. troops from the Philippines. But that was the last thing he wanted to do, for two reasons: It would have meant that the United States would no longer control the Philippines as an imperialist possession and, more important, the troops would no longer be serving as bait to lure the Japanese into attacking.
On December 7, 1941, Japanese forces attacked U.S. battleships at Pearl Harbor (U.S. aircraft carriers had been withdrawn before the attack). The Japanese aim was not to invade and conquer the United States but rather to knock out the U.S. fleet, which would have given Japan a free hand in securing oil in the Dutch East Indies. A day later, Japan attacked the Philippines, an island nation 8,000 miles away from American shores in which those 12,000 U.S. troops were stationed. Several months later, out of supplies and ammunition, those 12,000 troops, along with more than 50,000 Filipino troops, surrendered to Japanese forces. It was the largest contingent of U.S. military forces to surrender in U.S. history.
FDR had gotten wanted he wanted — a war against Japan and a “back door” to war in Europe. 12,000 U.S. soldiers in the Philippines and more than 2,000 U.S. soldiers in Hawaii paid the price for empire and intervention and Roosevelt’s unconstitutional machinations.

2007 Speech


Discurso do Presidente da Rússia, Vladimir Putin, na manhã do dia 24 de Fevereiro de 2022

Discurso do Presidente da Rússia, Vladimir Putin, Tradução em português

Presidente da Rússia, Vladimir Putin: Cidadãos da Rússia, Amigos,

Considero ser necessário falar hoje, de novo, sobre os trágicos acontecimentos em Donbass e sobre os aspectos mais importantes de garantir a segurança da Rússia.

Começarei com o que disse no meu discurso de 21 de Fevereiro de 2022. Falei sobre as nossas maiores responsabilidades e preocupações e sobre as ameaças fundamentais que os irresponsáveis políticos ocidentais criaram à Rússia de forma continuada, com rudeza e sem cerimónias, de ano para ano. Refiro-me à expansão da NATO para Leste, que está a aproximar cada vez mais as suas infraestruturas militares da fronteira russa.

É um facto que, durante os últimos 30 anos, temos tentado pacientemente chegar a um acordo com os principais países NATO, relativamente aos princípios de uma segurança igual e indivisível, na Europa. Em resposta às nossas propostas, enfrentámos invariavelmente, ou engano cínico e mentiras, ou tentativas de pressão e de chantagem, enquanto a aliança do Atlântico Norte continuou a expandir-se, apesar dos nossos protestos e preocupações. A sua máquina militar está em movimento e, como disse, aproxima-se da nossa fronteira.

Porque é que isto está a acontecer? De onde veio esta forma insolente de falar que atinge o máximo do seu excepcionalismo, infalibilidade e permissividade? Qual é a explicação para esta atitude de desprezo e desdém pelos nossos interesses e exigências absolutamente legítimas?
