Τον Ιούνιο του 1941 οι Γερμανοί εισβάλουν στη Κρήτη και αρχίζουν μιά εκστρατεία εκδίκησης με μαζικές εκτελέσεις και δολοφονίες αμάχων και ανυπότακτων Κρητικών. Οι Κρητικοί συμμετείχαν στην αποτροπή της εισβολής και προκαλούν το θάνατο χιλιάδων Γερμανών στρατιωτών και σίγουρα την οργή των κατακτητών.Ο πρώτος διοικητής της Κρήτης Κουρτ Στουντεντ έδωσε εντολή για εκτελέσεις χωρίς δικαστήρια,για καταστροφές χωρίων και ηλίθια επίδειξη ισχύος.Οι κάτοικοι του χωριού Κάνδανος στο Νομο Χανίων αντιστάθηκαν στους Ναζί κατακτητές.

Οι Ναζί πρώτα βομβάρδισαν τον Κάνδανο και μετά μονάδα τους  υπό τον ταγματάρχη Σέτε στις 21,22 και 24 του Μάη συγκρουέται με τους σχεδόν αόπλους Κρητικούς.Οι εισβολείς μετρούν  πάνω από 70 νεκρούς   και δεκάδες τραυματίες.Αφου κατέλαβαν το λιμάνι της Παλαιχώρα προβαίνουν σε αντίποινα εκεί όπου συνάντησαν τη μεγαλύτερη αντίσταση. Στις 2 Ιουνίου 1941 η μονάδα του 11 ου Γερμανικού Σώματος Αεροπορίας φτάνουν στο χωριό Κοντομαρί.Οι Ναζί με επικεφαλής τον υποσμηναγό Χορτς Τρεμπες, περικυκλωνουν το χωριό και συγκεντρώνουν τους κατοίκους.Ξεχωρίζουν 23 άνδρες προς εκτέλεση.Ο Τρεμπες λέει στους μελλοθάνατους: “‘οποιος θέλει τώρα μπορεί να φύγει,θα έχει περισοτερο ενδιαφέρον”.Η σφαγή στο Κοντομαρί είναι η πρώτη εκτέλεση αμάχων στην Ευρώπη! Το ίδιο βράδυ επιστρέφουν στο χωριό Κάνδανος το βομβαρδίζουν και έπειτα το περικυκλώνουν.Στις 3 του Ιούνη με επικεφαλής τον Στρατηγο Λιμπερτ ρίχνουν προκηρύξεις και καλουν τους κατοίκους να επιστρέψουν σπίτια τους και με μεγάφωνα φωνάζουν οτι δεν θα πειράξουν κανένα!Οι κάτοικοι δεν πείθονται και τοτε Γερμανοι κάνουν αυτο που ήξεραν πολύ καλά να κάνουν.Δολοφονούν υπερήλικες άντρες και γυναίκες,βάζουν φωτιά και καίνε το χωριό ρίχνοντας στους δρόμους το λάδι της σοδειάς .Στη συνέχεια απαγορεύουν την ανοικοδόμηση του χωριού.

In June 1941  Germans invade in Crete and begin a expedition of revenge with mass implementations and murders of non-combatant  and undisciplined Cretans. The Cretans participated in the dissuasion of invasion and cause the death of thousands of German soldiers and sure the rage of conquerors.The first governor of Crete Kurt Arthur Benno Student gave command on implementations without courts, for destructions of villages and idiotic demonstration of power.The residents of village Kandanos in the area Chania resisted to Nazi conquerors.Nazi first bombarded Kandanos and afterwards their unit under major Sete in 21,22 and 24 the May colides with the almost unarmed Cretans.The intruders measures above 70 deads   and many  wounded. Since they occupied the harbour of Palaichora they proceed in reprisal there where they met the bigger resistance.On 2 June 1941 the unit of the 11th German Corps Aviation reach in the village Kontomari.Nazi with head lieutenant Horst Trèbes , encircle the village and assemble the  population . Separate 23 men to execution.Trèbes say in condemned to death: “’anyone who wants now he can leave, this will have much interest”. The slaughter in Kontomari is the first implementation non-combatant in Europe!The same evening they return in the village Kandanos bombing and then they surroud it.On 3 June with head the General Limpert  throw proclamations and calling the residents tο return ιν their houses and with loudspeakers they shout that they will not tease no one! The residents are not convinced and then Germans make what knew very well to do. they kill  old  men and women, put fire and they burn the village throwing in the streets the yield oil  . Afterwards they prohibit the reconstruction of village.

THE PHOTO OF THE ISRAEL SOLDIER MAKE TO FEEL SICK!

Not Helping The Peace Process: IDF Soldier Posts Instagram Of Boy In Sniper Crosshairs
There are stupid uses of social media, and then there are downright stupid uses of social media. This is the latter.
On Monday, a soldier in the Israel Defense Force, identified by the Guardian as Mor Ostrovski, 20, posted this picture to his Instagram, that features the back of a young boy’s head caught in a sniper rifle’s crosshairs.

Israeli soldier posts disturbing Instagram photo of child in crosshairs of his rifle

It’s unclear where or of what nationality the young boy is, but Electronic Intifada, a pro-Palestinian advocacy group and one of the first to report the picture, said the “character of the buildings” in the image strongly suggest the child could be Palestinian.

The IDF said in a statement to Israel’s YnetNews that “this is a severe incident” that was being investigated, and that the soldier’s actions “are not in accordance with the spirit of the IDF or its values.”

Ostrovski later told his superiors that he did not take the picture, but found it on the Internet, the Guardian said. His Instagram account no longer exists, but the image was caught and spread by Electronic Intifada. They also posted several more pictures of Ostrovski posing with heavy weaponry (including sniper rifles).

Breaking The Silence, an organization of ex-IDF soldiers who aim to raise awareness of what life is like in the Palestinian territories, called the photo an “absurd show of force” and an “abuse of power rooted in the military control of another people” on their Facebook page.

“Ten years have passed. Technology and media have changed. The distribution of images has changed. But the exaggerated sense of power and the blatant disregard for human life and dignity have remained: This is what occupation looks like,” they wrote.

Ostrovski, who belongs to a sniper unit, is the third IDF soldier in the past week to run into trouble for posting inappropriate photos. The other two soldiers were reported for posting a photo of one of them posing next to four blindfolded and bound Palestinian detainees, YNet News reported. The soldier who posed in the photograph was sentenced to 14 days in detention. The second soldier has not yet been disciplined. The IDF press office released a statement saying that “photographs of this nature falsely represent the IDF and its values,” and that the military police had opened an investigation into the incident.

“Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”

“Enola Gay, you should have stayed at home yesterday,
words can’t describe the feeling and the way you lied.
These games you play, they’re gonna end in more than tears someday
Enola Gay, it shouldn’t ever have to end this way
It’s 8:15, and that’s the time that it’s always been
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you’re coming home
Enola Gay, is mother proud of little boy today
this kiss you give, it’s never ever gonna fade away
Enola Gay, it shouldn’t ever have to end this way
Enola Gay, it shouldn’t fade in our dreams away
It’s 8:15, and that’s the time that it’s always been
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you’re coming home
Enola Gay, is mother proud of little boy today
this kiss you give, it’s never ever gonna fade away”

Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed 90,000166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,00080,000 in Nagasaki, with roughly half of the deaths in each city occurring on the first day. The Hiroshima prefectural health department estimates that, of the people who died on the day of the explosion, 60% died from flash or flame burns, 30% from falling debris and 10% from other causes. During the following months, large numbers died from the effect of burns, radiation sickness, and other injuries, compounded by illness. In a more plausible estimate of the total immediate and short term cause of death, 1520% died from radiation sickness, 2030% from flash burns, and 5060% from other injuries, compounded by illness. In both cities, most of the dead were civilians.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

During the final stages of World War II in 1945, the United States conducted two atomic bombings against the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan.

After six months of intense strategic fire-bombing of 67 Japanese cities the Japanese government ignored an ultimatum given by the Potsdam Declaration. By executive order of President Harry S. Truman the U.S. dropped the nuclear weapon “Little Boy” on the city of Hiroshima on Monday, August 6, 1945, followed by the detonation of “Fat Man” over Nagasaki on August 9. These two events are the only active deployments of nuclear weapons in war. The target was chosen as Hiroshima was a city of considerable military importance, containing Japan’s Second Army Headquarters, as well as being a communications center and storage depot.

Six days after the detonation over Nagasaki, on August 15, Japan announced its surrender to the Allied Powers, signing the Instrument of Surrender on September 2, officially ending the Pacific War and therefore World War II. Germany had signed its Instrument of Surrender on May 7, ending the war in Europe. The bombings led, in part, to post-war Japan adopting Three Non-Nuclear Principles, forbidding the nation from nuclear armament. The role of the bombings in Japan’s surrender and the U.S.’s ethical justification for them, as well as their strategical importance, is still debated.

Paul Warfield Tibbets, Jr. (February 23, 1915 November 1, 2007) was a brigadier general in the United States Air Force, best known for being the pilot of the Enola Gay, the first aircraft to drop an atomic bomb in the history of warfare. The bomb, code-named Little Boy, was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima and one of biggest criminals against humanity.
During a 1975 interview he said: “I’m proud that I was able to start with nothing, plan it, and have it work as perfectly as it did… I sleep clearly every night.”[5] In March 2005, he stated, “If you give me the same circumstances, I’d do it again.”

Albert Einstein ( 14 March 1879 18 April 1955)
The Einsteins were non-observant Jews.
Einstein was persuaded to lend his enormous prestige by writing a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt on August 2, 1939, alerting him to the possibility that Nazi Germany might be developing an atomic bomb. According to weapons historians, the letter was “arguably the key stimulus for the U.S. adoption of serious investigations into nuclear weapons on the eve of the U.S. entry into World War II.” As a result of Einstein’s letter, the U.S. entered the “race” to develop the bomb first, drawing on its “immense material, financial, and scientific resources.” It became the only country to develop an atomic bomb during World War II.
—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The United States Government has always lied to its citizens with regularity in its history and the bombings and senseless Murder and Destruction at Pearl Harbor, Hiroshima and Nagasaki are no exception.

Yes the Japanese did bomb Pearl Harbor with 2897 Americans killed, 879 wounded, and 26 missing. It was an egregious act of cowardice; however did FDR know it would occur?

Pearl Harbor did President Franklin Delano Roosevelt know of the attack?

There are many who believe that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt did in fact know the attack was imminent. However at the time the USA was in an isolationist frame of mind and wanted no part of the conflict in Europe. This after the great loss of American lives in World War I; there were more than nine million soldiers and civilian deaths in that conflict on both sides.

After World War I the United States had become a country without a moral compass its citizens were only interested in their own lives and were not ready to suffer anymore causalities to another conflict. Remember that WWII started in 1939 and that the United States did not enter the war until the attack by the Japanese on December 7 th, 1941 a full two years after the conflict had begun. The United States government wanted to enter World War II, but they needed a reason to get the people of the country to support their plans.

The bombing of Pearl Harbor could not have come at a better time and was seen as a way for FDR and as a byproduct the United States of America, to engage the people of this country in the conflict because of its horrific aftermath.

There were accounts that the United States had not broken the all important Japanese military codes prior to the attack, this was in fact a lie. There are now documents that have been released which paint a very frightening picture.

One out of the more than eighty three messages intercepted by the US Navy which were sent by the Japanese Admiral Yamamoto to his fleet commanders is the most damning which read in part, “… the task force, keeping its movements strictly secret and maintaining close guard against submarines and aircraft, shall advance into Hawaiian waters, and upon the very opening of hostilities shall attack the main force of the United States fleet in Hawaii and deal it a mortal blow … “, this was sent November 25 th 1941.

A future Presidential hopeful and opponent for FDR in the next election Thomas Dewey became aware that the Japanese code had previously been broken prior to the Pearl Harbor attack. He had hoped to use this against FDR in the 1944 election. His desire was to do a series of political speeches where he would charge that FDR new of the attacks and did nothing to overt the pending doom in Hawaii.

However the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General George Marshall talked to Thomas Dewey and told him that the Japanese were not aware that their code had been broken. Rather than place our American forces in harms way by compromising their intelligence gathering capabilities, Dewey relented and no speeches were given, FDR went on to win the election of 1944.

It was also previously stated that the Japanese Navy operated under strict radio silence this again was another lie otherwise the US Navy would not have intercepted eighty three messages that were sent to the Japanese fleet.

There were also those that were present when FDR heard the news of the attack on Pearl Harbor and they observed, “The President’s surprise was not as great as that of other men around him. Nor was the attack unwelcome. It had ended the past months of uncertainty caused by FDR’s decision that Japan must be seen to make the first overt move. ”

It is more than probable that because of this cold calculating mindset that over 2897 American soldiers died needlessly just to give the United States the needed political and national momentum to enter the war.

The Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Why did President Truman order the slaughter of Seventy Thousand people in Hiroshima and another 40 to 70 thousand in Nagasaki and give the United States of America the historical distinction of being the only country in the world which has ever used a Nuclear device to devastate and destroy a nation?

The names were comical, Fat-man and Little Boy but the aftermath of their use in Japan was far from being anything of the sort. Little Boy was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6 th, 1945. Fat Man was dropped a few days later on Nagasaki on August 9 th, 1945 with their deadly payloads.

But why did the US unleash this untold death and destruction when Japan clearly wanted to surrender? The Soviet’s under their leader Joseph Stalin, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and United States President Harry S. Truman all knew that the Emperor of Japan had accepted the terms of an unconditional surrender 19 days before the first atomic bomb was dropped.

President Truman knew the Japanese wanted to surrender however he was not going to allow the Soviet Union to be the peace broker as he feared they would gain the upper hand. He wanted to show the Soviet government and the world at large the destructive power that the United States had in its arsenal the loss of human life was just an afterthought to be dismissed.

From President Truman’s own handwritten diary an entry on July 18th, 1945, “Discussed Manhattan (it is a success). Decided to tell Stalin about it. Stalin had told PM (Churchill) of telegram from Jap emperor asking for peace … “This was nineteen days before the bombings, he knew yet he pursued the path of death and destruction.

Another diary entry this from an assistant to Secretary of State James F. Byrnes by Walter Brown, the entry from August 3 rd, 1945. It was written that Byrnes, Admiral William D. Leahy and President Truman, “Agrred [sic] Japas [sic] looking for peace. (Leahy had another report from Pacific) President afraid they will sue for peace through Russia instead of some country like Sweden. ”

Manhattan Project scientist Leo Szilard recalled what Byrnes thought process was; “(Byrnes) was concerned about Russia’s postwar behavior. Russian troops had moved into Hungary and Rumania, and Byrnes thought it would be very difficult to persuade Russia to withdraw her troops from these countries, that Russia might be more manageable if impressed by American military might, and that a demonstration of the bomb might impress Russia. ”

Yet President Truman bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki even though the Japanese government clearly wanted to surrender, all for the political gain the US would realize.

The United States stated that by dropping these bombs countless American soldiers’ lives would be saved. But no saving was needed the Japanese wanted to end the war and they unfortunately engaged the Soviet Union as their emissary, because of this for the first time in the history of the world Nuclear bombs were dropped for no reason other than to strengthen the mighty hand of the United States of America. As a footnote in regards to the current Middle Eastern conflict in Iraq as well as the problems facing Israel, it is worth noting that the superpowers of the world in 1948 created the current atrocities. Again for personal gain the Middle East was chopped up and artificial countries and borders were created by the superpowers for economic and political reasons. If this had not occurred the war in which we are presently involved in would have never even been started in the first place. If the USA had never placed permanent military installations in Saudi Arabia the Twin Towers would still be part of the New York skyline as well for Osama bin Laden and his hatred for the United States would have never manifested itself within his mind. When will the superpowers of the world learn, how many have to needlessly die?
