Every time one turns to mainstream media one cringes at the incessant lies being told about Russia’s so-called preparations for an invasion of Ukraine. Not a single story is corroborated. The sole aim of media is to beat the drums of war for American interests.
If you wish to avoid history repeating itself then learn from it. Here following are admissions of politicians of all sides in the run-up to the disastrous World War II. This war, supposedly to defend Poland’s independence, cost an estimated 50 million lives.
The avoidable conflict resulted in twenty-one once free nations and their peoples being gifted in 1945 to the hideous Soviet despot Josef Stalin and his Bolshevik cohorts. Poland, whose ‘independence’ we were told was the spark for war was included in the package of nations gifted to the Soviet Union by Winston Churchill and US President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Of that war, the then principal figures expressed their honest opinions as to precisely who was responsible for the most disastrous conflict in history.
‘History will judge the Press generally to have been the principal cause of war. Of all Germans; Hitler is the most moderate as far as Danzig and the Corridor are concerned.’ – Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, 16th, August 1939.
‘I would feel confident if it were not for the British Press, or at any rate that section of it which is inspired by an intelligentsia which hates Hitler so much that they see red whatsoever the facts are. – Neville Henderson, British Ambassador to Berlin.
‘Scarcely a day passes without the Press slinging mud at Germany. The British Press is almost unanimous in agreeing that our erstwhile enemies are out for revenge, that the members of the Nazi government are thugs, thieves, liars, and even murderers; that nothing good can come out of the German government; that it would be better to march into that country now and crush the Nazis rather than wait until they have re-armed. Every item of news is falsified and exaggerated to meet the exigencies of a lying campaign.’ – Correspondent G. E. O Knight, In Defence of Germany.
‘One of the most horrible features of war is that all the war propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are NOT fighting.’ – George Orwell, 1938.
‘Nine-tenths of all the difficulties under which we are suffering can be traced to malicious news reports.’ – Dr Dietrich, German Secretary of State.
Journalists with their professional accreditation, freedom to go anywhere, see anyone, ask questions, are ideally placed and suited for the purpose of espionage abroad and that of the role of agent provocateur wherever. The British establishment and not the least the British Press are notorious for harbouring political moles not only acting on behalf of the KGB but a wide diversity of ‘foreign interest’ paymasters.
‘A newspaper has three things to do. One is to amuse, another is to entertain, and the rest is to mislead.’ – British Foreign Minister, Ernest Bevin, London Conference of Foreign Ministers, February 10, 1946.
‘Unhappily, bad feeling between nations is fomented daily by poisonous propaganda in the Press and by other means. I cannot help feeling that if only we halt this war of words and some action is taken which would tend to restore the confidence of the people in the peaceful intentions of all the statesmen of Europe if only that could be done, then I still feel that I know of no question that could not and should not be solved by peaceful discussions. The gain would be enormous,’ – Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, 16th, August 1939.
On the other hand, if war should come, whichever side may claim ultimate victory, nothing is more certain than the victor and vanquished would glean a gruesome harvest of human misery and suffering.’ – Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, July 1939.
‘Many a time public opinion has been poisoned by untruthful statements in the Press, and by that irresponsible sensationalism which endangers the peace of nations. I have received many letters from journalists who agreed with me..’ ~ President-Chancellor Adolf Hitler.
There is proof that many pressmen are working under the compulsion of circumstances. It is the same with many democratic statesmen as with many journalists. They have long recognised the depressing Press problem, but dare not deal with it.’ – Adolf Hitler.
Thus, M. Lebrun, the French President seriously warned the editors of his country not to abuse the so-called Press freedom at their annual meeting of the French Journalists Organisation, on February 8 1937. ‘One should never forget the regrettable effects of false reports, which might threaten that international harmony among the nations, for which one should work more than ever, and jeopardise the peace desired by all.’
‘At a lunch of the Foreign Press Association in Paris, the French Foreign Minister, M. Delbos, stated that the common duty of the Press in all lands was to calm the fever which had arisen. The Press would have, he continued, to do more for the reconciliation of their nations than their separation.’
According to the Prague Press of April 21 1935, Czech President Benesch asked whether it was possible to overlook the fact that the moral state of or generation was being ruined by the revolutionary, demagogic, immoral, corruptible, sensational, etc. points of view and aims which guided the Press.’

In an address before the Institute of Journalists, Irish President de Valera asked whether the freedom of the Press should or should not be restricted. … the nation would have to be protected against the abuse of the influence of the Press.’
‘Half a dozen men controlling the film industry were bent on inflaming the American people to clamour for war.’ – Senator Clark September 10 1941.
