Press-ganged soldiers who fight only to escape poverty

World War II veterans welcome the respect that comes with their once having been a member of the armed forces. This is a normal human trait but chances are they were not volunteers. Conscripts, many of them in their teens, were press-ganged into the armed forces. If there was genuine enthusiasm for the war then conscription would be neither necessary nor desirable.

There was a time when factories were built to produce arms when a country was drawn into war. Capitalist wars are deliberately started to produce orders for the arms industries, trade and asset acquisition. For this reason, the managed democracies must live in a permanent state of war.

If the politicians are successful in starting conflicts and keeping wars going it is necessary to increase the size of the armed forces.  This is when conscription is ushered in.

Of the 16 million American servicemen drafted into military service during World War Two less than 1/30 (600,000) actually volunteered.  And, the majority of those who volunteered jumped before they were pushed.

The volunteers were smart enough to know that by stepping up they would be better considered and rewarded than those who waited for conscription. A volunteer had some choice as to what service branch he served in; conscripts had little or no choice.

At the onset of America’s entry into World War II, conscripts discovered that bed-wetting earned them an honourable discharge. This is an unfortunate choice of words but that is how it was.  After this ruse was discovered, the incidence of bed-wetting shot up by 1,200 per cent in one Texas training camp alone. It was only stopped when the War Department issued a circular removing it as a ‘psycho-neurotic discharge.’

The US economy suffered more hours lost through desertion than it did through civilian strikes. During the American Depression, and leading up to the draft (conscription), the number of unemployed in the United States reached 11 million.

With no social security available unemployed men were desperate for any work. Hardly surprisingly, the prospect of three meals a day, a clean bunk with shower facilities, new clothes and shoes with no rent to pay, career opportunities, sport, travel, free laundry and in the pocket $21 a month, a lot of money then, held irresistible appeal.  

It gets better for there would be no fighting to do. The American President at his election campaign in Boston declared on October 30: ‘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.’

Hollow words for the president were part of a conspiracy to further tighten sanctions of Japan. This would leave America’s Asian trade rival no choice but to punch its way out of Washington’s death grip: hence Pearl Harbor, a Black Flag to turn the key in the door for war.

As Japan was a member of an alliance (Tripartite Pact) between Italy, Germany and Japan, war with Japan would de facto be a war on the Third Reich and Italy, neither of which nations presented a threat to the United States.

Similar social deprivation existed in Britain.  Millions of breadwinners were unemployed and unable to feed their families.  There was no such thing as social security or benefits as we know them today.

There was the means test. This humiliating appeal for a few pennies meant that you would have to sell all but essential furniture such as bed and table before the state would offer a meagre token of assistance. Many, including veterans of Britain’s colonial wars openly begged on the streets. 

When veterans occasionally parade respect the fact that most wore the Queen’s uniform not as a means of defending their way of life but as a means of feeding themselves and their families. In which case, their enemy was not Germany, which never presented a threat to Britain, but an economic system that left them no choice but to climb into the uniforms of their country’s armed forces. EXCERPT: The All Lies Invasion Volume II.

  1. Whatever reason they fought for, the end result was the destruction of Germany and Japan. If there is any truth to the “karma” story, then the english speaking people will be exterminated. The jews and the russians as well.

  2. Unfortunately you are correct. Japan does not have the resources to survive, so it looks like a Chinese world in the end. Like Irlmaier said, I am glad I won’t experience what I saw.
