Stalin Intended to Strike Hitler First

"He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future." --George Orwell
Most people think the Nazis betrayed a trusted ally June 22, 1941 when they launched "Operation Barbarossa." In fact, Stalin began planning to attack Hitler almost as soon as the ink dried on their non-aggression pact August 23, 1939.
The Nazi's "Operation Barbarossa" anticipated the Soviets by only "a few weeks" says Heinz Magenheimer, one of Austria's most respected military historians.
"The Wehrmacht thrust right into the center of an overpowering offensive deployment with armored and motorized troops massed on the borders." ("Hitler's War: Germany's Key Strategic Decisions 1940-1945, 1997, p.63)
Stalin told military academy graduates May 5, 1941: "And now after we have become strong... we must shift from the defensive to the attack." He had nine million men, 38,000 tanks and 22,200 aircraft and expected to be in control of Berlin and most of Europe by 1942.
At some point, Hitler realized Stalin intended to stab him in the back while he was occupied with England. Churchill and Stalin, both Freemasons, had a secret pact. Just read (Soviet ambassador to London) Ivan Maisky's "Memoirs" to see how chummy the British and Russians were even while the latter were in bed with Hitler.
(Evidence of a secret Churchill-Stalin pact was found on board a British plane that crashed in Finland en route to Russia. The Oct. 2005 Finnish report is no longer available on the Liberty Forum site where I saw it. )
Hitler was double-crossed by Stalin and Churchill. As the Russian campaign went sour, did Hitler take revenge on Jews? Extermination did not start until 1942. In 1939, Hitler said: "This war will not turn out the way the Jews imagine it, that is with the extermination of the European Aryan peoples, but that the result of this war will be the destruction of Jewry." (Dwork, Holocaust: A History, p. 260, 284)
Stalin's price for continued collaboration amounted to blackmail. At a Nov. 1940 Berlin Conference, Molotov demanded large parts of the Balkans, the Turkish straits, Bulgaria and Western Poland. (47)
Magenheimer suggests that Hitler's final decision to attack Russia was prompted by Russian support of an anti-Nazi military coup in Yugoslavia in March 1941. Clearly Stalin was fishing in Hitler's pond.
Magenheimer says that "Operation Barbarossa" was "decisively influenced" by this aggressive Soviet posture. Stalin's demands "were not only unacceptable to Germany" but reinforced "the impression that Moscow posed a long-term threat." Germany gave up on attempts to bring the USSR into a "continental bloc" against Great Britain.
In 1939, Stalin started to build a "Polish Red Army of Liberation" from the ranks of Polish POWS. They were to liberate Poland from the Nazis and provide the nucleus of a Communist regime. He overestimated the power of brainwashing. The Catholic Poles refused to cooperate and that's why roughly 15,000 officers were shot at Katyn Forest and elsewhere in April-June 1940.
The question remains: If Stalin was prepared to attack Europe, why did he passively endure Hitler's devastating invasion? He had plenty of warning yet didn't launch a preemptive attack as his generals advised. He threatened to shoot anyone who took precautionary measures claiming Hitler would see them as provocations. He insisted Hitler was bluffing and wouldn't start a two-front war.
If we believe FDR's dictum that nothing in politics happens by accident, were the massive Russian loses (20 million dead) intentional?
WHY DON'T WE HEAR ALTERNATIVE VIEWS?
In 1990, Viktor Suvorov revealed Stalin's plans in his book "Icebreaker" but he was considered a maverick. Using post-Glasnost archival material and research, Magenheimer later confirmed that Suvorov was indeed right.
We don't hear that Stalin intended to displace Nazis hegemony with his own because "Uncle Joe" was our ally, and Communism was a dialectical model for the New World Order.
History is a form of brainwashing. The programming calls for Hitler to be a homocidal maniac intent on eradicating all Jews and taking over the world. Thus Hitler's stigma can be transferred to anyone who opposes Zionist control: nationalists, racialists, religious, Palestinians, Taliban-- all "Islamo Fascists." Thus we are primed for the next new world order war.
A view that showed the Judeo Masonic Money Power (that controlled England, the US and USSR) conspiring to destroy Germany; and Germany possibly using Jewish genocide in revenge, interferes with this programming.
When International Jewry "declared war" on Nazi Germany in 1933, they didn't consider half a million German Jews who immediately would become prisoners of war. Eventually most European Jews became hostages and pawns in a game played by a diabolical few.
PRISONERS OF MIND
Alexander Solzhenitsyn's book about the Jewish role in the Bolshevik Revolution and after, "Two Hundred Years Together" (2003) also interferes with holocaust mind control. It documents the disproportionate role ethnic Jews played in the Russian Revolution and subsequent genocide of 66 million Russians under Lenin and Stalin.
A measure of our mind control: This work by a Nobel Prize winning author, a best seller in Russia has not been translated into English. Thus we must learn from Wolfgang Strauss, a reviewer of the German edition that Solzhenitsyn explained Russian anti-Semitism by citing the newspapers of the day. The ‘Jew Bolsheviks’ had captured and occupied the Soviet State; they were in the top ranks of the Red Army. Soviet power had been converted into Jewish power, and the Jews pursued Jewish, not Russian goals. (p. 201)
"Solzhenitsyn states that Lenin had three reasons for elevating young secular, revolutionary-minded Jews to the State’s elite, in effect replacing the Tsarist bureaucracy. First, because of the deadly hate the young Jews had for Russian traditions, religious rites, historical models, hate for everything Russian and Russia itself. Second, their willingness to cross the last taboo borders in morality. And third, their readiness to physically liquidate the enemy."
Stalin put Jews in charge of some of his nastiest work, and then catered to popular sentiment by liquidating them. "Such was the case in the murderous collectivization program in 1928-1933 to which the names of prominent ‘Jew Bolsheviks’ were attached. Stalin was well aware of the hate city Jews had for everything related to the Russian and Ukrainian peasantry. They spread terror, killing the peasants and destroying the villages, eventually causing the famine that took the lives of at least six million Ukrainians. The Jewish commissars in charge of the anti-kulak program, which was tantamount to genocide, were literally the masters over life and death."
Thus, while many Jews such as my grandparents were innocent victims of
Nazi terror, Bolshevik Jews were perpetrators of terror. This acknowledgement would interfere with the "guilt trip" (charge of anti-Semitism) used to advance the Zionist agenda (and keep Jews in line.) How dare Zionists accuse political opponents of "hate"? It is a
disingenuous and juvenile psychological trick to paralyze opposition. Zionists who assign a ridiculous collective responsibility to others would have a lot to answer for themselves.
Our era resembles the 1930's when people lived in constant dread of an upcoming world war. War was very unpopular in 1939 but our misleaders managed to engineer one anyway.The US cannot win a conventional war in the Middle East and is planning a nuclear one.
The pieces are all in place for speedy escalation. An "Iranian" attack on a US ship; an Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear facilities; an "Iranian" (terrorist nuclear?) attack on Israeli or American cities; the imposition of martial law and dictatorship in the US. Who believes Bush and Cheney aren't capable of this?
Frankly I am depressed by the prospect. Setting the historical record straight is one way I have of responding.
Note: An insight into Stalin: In January 1913, Stalin spent six weeks in Vienna writing an article. The working class champion stayed at the mansion of Alexander Troyanovsky, the wealthy Jewish son of a high Czarist officer who became Soviet ambassador to Washington 1934-1938. His son Oleg, who attended a Quaker school, later became Soviet ambassador to the UN in the 1980's. The anecdote suggests Bolshevism was sponsored by a clique consisting mainly of rich Jews, and the fate of European Jews was influenced by the course of Soviet-Nazi relations. Communist Jews evidently had no use for non-Communist Jews. (Frederick Morton, Thunder at Twilight: Vienna 1913-14, pp. 20-24.)
