Buchanan was heel lang senator in het Amerikaansew Congres. Hij is een traditionele conservatief , een Republikein dus. Zeker geen Neoconseravtief, wat iets heel anders is.
De wijze van redeneren van Buchanan spreekt mij erg aan.
Ik gebruik die ook zelf, als wordt beweerd dat Hitler van plan was om alle joden te vergassen.
Dit zou dan blijken uit de goede organisatie van dat vergassen.
Maar daar klopt niks van.
Pas in febr. 1942, tijdens de Wannsee Conferentie, is min of meer besloten dat het niet erg zou zijn als alle joden van ellende zouden sterven. Over vergassen is niet gesproken.
Pas in 1942 is men begonnen met crematoria te bouwen. Maar dat zijn geen gaskamers.
Het is bekend dat er twee gaskamers waren, in twee gebouwen net buiten Auschwitz. Die waren er al voor 1940, en er zijn een aantal communisten vergast, als ik me goed herinner.
Van gaskamers ìn Auschwitz is geen enkel hard bewijs, zover ik weet. Zie: David Cole.
Wel heel veel getuigenissen.
In 1946 waren er getuigenissen over 22 Duitse kampen dat daar gaskamers zouden zijn. David Cole.
De Amerikanen hebben alles nagetrokken, en vonden nergens een spoor van gaskamers.
De concentratiekampen waarvan we nu aannemen dat ze gaskamers hadden, liggen allemaal in Oost Duitsland en Polen, dus in Russisch gebied waar de Amerikanen geen onderzoek konden doen.
Raul Hilberg was een van de eersten die over de concentratiekampoen schreef, ca 1960. Hij schreef toen ook dat Hitler opdracht had gegeven om dse joden te vernietigen. Maaar ca 1990 moest Hilberg deze bewering intrekken: er is nergens een spoor van zo'n opdracht. Volgens Hilberg is de moord op 5,1 miljoen joden ( Hilberg telt er geen 6 miljoen) min of meer zonder opdracht gedaan. Dat is toch weer iets anders dan een plan dat al vòòr de oorlog bekend was.
Er is ook nooit budget voor vrijgemaakt.
Maar we hadden het over Buchanan en de vraag of Hitler van plan was om de wereld te veroveren.
Hier de logische analyse van Buchanan:
Did Hitler want war ?
by Patrick J. Buchanan
On Sept. 1, 1939, 70 years ago, the German Army crossed the Polish frontier. On Sept. 3, Britain declared war.
Six years later, 50 million Christians and Jews had perished. Britain was broken and bankrupt, Germany a smoldering ruin. Europe had served as the site of the most murderous combat known to man, and civilians had suffered worse horrors than the soldiers.
By May 1945, Red Army hordes occupied all the great capitals of Central Europe: Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Berlin. A hundred million Christians were under the heel of the most barbarous tyranny in history: the Bolshevik regime of the greatest terrorist of them all, Joseph Stalin.
What cause could justify such sacrifices?
The German-Polish war had come out of a quarrel over a town the size of Ocean City, Md., in summer. Danzig, 95 percent German, had been severed from Germany at Versailles in violation of Woodrow Wilson’s principle of self-determination. Even British leaders thought Danzig should be returned.
Why did Warsaw not negotiate with Berlin, which was hinting at an offer of compensatory territory in Slovakia? Because the Poles had a war guarantee from Britain that, should Germany attack, Britain and her empire would come to Poland’s rescue.
But why would Britain hand an unsolicited war guarantee to a junta of Polish colonels, giving them the power to drag Britain into a second war with the most powerful nation in Europe?
Was Danzig worth a war? Unlike the 7 million Hong Kongese whom the British surrendered to Beijing, who didn’t want to go, the Danzigers were clamoring to return to Germany.
Comes the response: The war guarantee was not about Danzig, or even about Poland. It was about the moral and strategic imperative “to stop Hitler” after he showed, by tearing up the Munich pact and Czechoslovakia with it, that he was out to conquer the world. And this Nazi beast could not be allowed to do that.
If true, a fair point. Americans, after all, were prepared to use atom bombs to keep the Red Army from the Channel. But where is the evidence that Adolf Hitler, whose victims as of March 1939 were a fraction of Gen. Pinochet’s, or Fidel Castro’s, was out to conquer the world?
After Munich in 1938, Czechoslovakia did indeed crumble and come apart. Yet consider what became of its parts.
The Sudeten Germans were returned to German rule, as they wished. Poland had annexed the tiny disputed region of Teschen, where thousands of Poles lived. Hungary’s ancestral lands in the south of Slovakia had been returned to her. The Slovaks had their full independence guaranteed by Germany. As for the Czechs, they came to Berlin for the same deal as the Slovaks, but Hitler insisted they accept a protectorate.
Now one may despise what was done, but how did this partition of Czechoslovakia manifest a Hitlerian drive for world conquest?
Comes the reply: If Britain had not given the war guarantee and gone to war, after Czechoslovakia would have come Poland’s turn, then Russia’s, then France’s, then Britain’s, then the United States.
We would all be speaking German now.
But if Hitler was out to conquer the world — Britain, Africa, the Middle East, the United States, Canada, South America, India, Asia, Australia — why did he spend three years building that hugely expensive Siegfried Line to protect Germany from France? Why did he start the war with no surface fleet, no troop transports and only 29 oceangoing submarines? How do you conquer the world with a navy that can’t get out of the Baltic Sea?
If Hitler wanted the world, why did he not build strategic bombers, instead of two-engine Dorniers and Heinkels that could not even reach Britain from Germany?
Why did he let the British army go at Dunkirk?
Why did he offer the British peace, twice, after Poland fell, and again after France fell?
Why, when Paris fell, did Hitler not demand the French fleet, as the Allies demanded and got the Kaiser’s fleet? Why did he not demand bases in French-controlled Syria to attack Suez? Why did he beg Benito Mussolini not to attack Greece?
Because Hitler wanted to end the war in 1940, almost two years before the trains began to roll to the camps.
Hitler had never wanted war with Poland, but an alliance with Poland such as he had with Francisco Franco’s Spain, Mussolini’s Italy, Miklos Horthy’s Hungary and Father Jozef Tiso’s Slovakia.
Indeed, why would he want war when, by 1939, he was surrounded by allied, friendly or neutral neighbors, save France. And he had written off Alsace, because reconquering Alsace meant war with France, and that meant war with Britain, whose empire he admired and whom he had always sought as an ally.
As of March 1939, Hitler did not even have a border with Russia. How then could he invade Russia?
Winston Churchill was right when he called it “The Unnecessary War” — the war that may yet prove the mortal blow to our civilization.
