"Crusade" of the West against Russia. Who fought against whom in World War II? The official anti-Hitler coalition against Nazi Germany, fascist Italy and militaristic Japan. In reality, the United States unleashed this war against the whole world in order to achieve world domination.
The USA fought a war according to a strategy of indirect actions: “divide and conquer”. Washington “nurtured” the hotbeds of war in Japan (the Asia-Pacific region), Italy and Germany (the Euro-African theater), pitted and pushed its rivals and enemies with each other, and provoked them to take advantageous steps. As a result of World War II, the United States achieved much: they destroyed and subjugated Western Europe, destroyed the German and Japanese empires, the American partner, the British Empire, was bled out, moving to the position of “junior” in the Washington – London tandem. The dollar dared all its competitors on a significant part of the planet, became a world currency, the United States received a financial instrument of world domination. Russia suffered terrible losses, it took off to the stars, and then, under Khrushchev, it was stopped.
The causes of the war
The fundamental cause of all world wars is the pursuit of world domination, the concentration of world resources and globalization. "King of the Hill" should be alone. There is a kind of competition of world projects, civilizations. By the beginning of the XNUMXth century, the western project in the form of capitalism dominated in most of the planet. Its essence is constant expansion, parasitism, exhaustion of other people's resources and energy.
The First World War was unleashed by “Western democracies” - the masters of Paris, London and Washington (Why did the masters of the West unleashed the First World War) to crush the competitors within the Western project - the German world, to destroy Russian civilization (the main prize) and the Ottoman Empire in order to further enslave the Islamic world. To establish the complete dominance of financial capital on the planet. However, the goals of this world war were not fully realized.
The German world, the aristocratic monarchies - the German and Austro-Hungarian empires, were destroyed. The Roman world - France and Italy, is bloodless, weakened and subject to the Anglo-Saxons. The Ottoman Empire was destroyed, dismembered and plundered, its possessions became the sphere of influence of the great Western powers. The Russian empire was killed, dismembered, subjected to total robbery, unleashed a terrible fratricidal Civil War, the intervention began capturing strategic points and cities. It seemed that the “Russian question” had been resolved. Russian civilization, a millennium opposed to the West, has fallen forever. However, the Russian Bolshevik Communists raised the red banner of social justice, won and were able to revive Russian (Soviet) statehood in a new way. Moreover, under Stalin, a Russian (Soviet) global project was born in Russia. Russia was reborn like a phoenix, and the West sensed a threat to its dominance.
In addition, the US victory in World War I was incomplete. Project of Woodrow Wilson, Colonel House (What is a "House Plan") about the American “new world order” was not fully implemented. Yes, America has become a world creditor from a world debtor, has entangled England and France with billions of debts. But the United States did not become a "global gendarme." The Soviet empire rose, in the Pacific, Japan showed its ambitions. Europe failed to completely subjugate the American will. That is, the First World War was incomplete, a “continuation war" was necessary.
The crisis of capitalism
The causes of the world war also lie in the crisis of capitalism. This system is designed for the constant expansion, absorption and development of ever new resources, energy and territories, enslavement of ever new peoples and countries. And there were no more. The whole planet has been mastered. It remains only to capture the spheres of influence within the capitalist world itself. In particular, the United States needed the colonies and markets of the British Empire.
The Great Depression was an unprecedented economic crisis that hit the United States in 1929. A strong crisis swept Western Europe, becoming the basis for the strengthening of fascist, dictatorial and authoritarian regimes, the victory of the Nazis in Germany. There are 15 million unemployed in the United States. The American "famine": some were dying of hunger, while others were starving. Crowds of workers, small employees, teachers and farmers who demand "to do as the Russians do" - there was no crisis in the USSR, on the contrary, there was a rapid rise. When the crisis struck, it became clear that in the States there is practically no social legislation, pensions and unemployment benefits, people are completely defenseless.
Roosevelt's predecessors tried to deal with the crisis with old methods. They balanced the budget, “optimized” it, cut costs, did not want to spend money on long-term programs for the development of agriculture and industry. They tried by all means to ensure low inflation and dollar stability. In fact, Russian liberals from the 90s to the present day are doing the same. As a result, the masses went bankrupt, became poorer, and the rich grew capital. It is not surprising that in the 1930s, millions of demonstrations took place in the United States under socialist slogans. The police had to use machine guns against the protesters, the government threw troops to disperse protests. In some states, camps were built for the homeless and the unemployed. A war was brewing between the countryside and the city, as it was in Russia. The ghost of a second civilian rose over the States.
The owners of the United States had no choice: either a big war again, or the development of a crisis that could lead to the collapse of the socio-economic American system, a new civil war, and the collapse of the States. It is clear that the owners of America were not going to follow the paths of social justice, peace and good. These are predators, social parasites. Therefore, it was decided once again to “reload the matrix”, to break and remake the entire world system. The great war gave America a great chance for world domination. Fortunately, the United States had a great starting position.
Thus, the question was straightforward: either the outbreak of a new world war with the goal of a radical reorganization of the entire world order in the interests of America, or the continuation of the terrible crisis threatening a civil war, the collapse of the country and millions of victims. Washington has chosen war.
Preparing for war
The United States from the beginning of the 1930s began to prepare for a new world war, when the Germans did not even think about it. In 1932, Franklin Roosevelt came to power. His policy was called the New Deal. Temporarily put a limit to financial parasites - banks. A single Reconstruction Finance Corporation is opening. An extraordinary law is being passed, which introduces state guarantee of private deposits in surviving banks, but threatens all people who keep money at home in a “mattress” with a prison term. Such is the financial discipline. People are again forced to put their savings and gold in banks. A powerful public sector is being created. Production planning, state control over prices and public works are introduced. The state uses a printing press to finance industrial projects. Serious assistance is being provided to the agricultural sector. Huge finances go to military projects, construction fleet for the conquest of world domination. In fact, Roosevelt largely repeated the Soviet experience.
The authorities dictate the minimum wage to entrepreneurs, protect the working class. Introduced powerful mechanisms of social protection of Americans. From this time begins the "golden age" of the working, middle-class USA. The Civil Engineering Corps has been created (remember the labor armies of Soviet Russia) to overcome unemployment. Hundreds of thousands of people literally over food work at "construction sites of capitalism" at an accelerated pace. Dams, highways, bridges, new industrial enterprises, etc. are being built. At the same time, Roosevelt strengthens the presidential and central authority. State rights are being cut. Expand special services and their rights. There is a "war of the elites." Part of the American elite considers Roosevelt to be a “communist", a dictator, trying to get him down. Roosevelt himself criticizes the "oligarchs" and "new feudal lords."
That was Roosevelt's New Deal. However, not everything is glued. There is no decisive change. It was possible to get out of the pit, but it was not possible to rush forward. It is impossible to combine capitalism and the elements of socialism. Throughout the 30s, the US economy has stagnated. In 1937, a new wave of crisis erupted. Analysts predict a new wave of great depression and economic collapse in 1940.
And the United States begins preparations for a new world massacre. Earlier then others! The new global war is the last chance for the United States to preserve itself and spread American order throughout the world. Transfer the crisis from the core of the capitalist system to the rest of the world. Throughout the second half of the 30s, Washington is doing everything to destroy any attempts to create a collective security system in Europe, punish aggressors, stop Mussolini and Hitler. Roosevelt supports Chamberlain's "appeasement" policy. London and Washington are pushing Hitler to the East. Financial capital supports the militarization of the Reich (On the preparation of the American capital of World War II; Who brought Hitler to power).
The States themselves are intensely preparing for war. From 1934 to 1938 US military budget doubles. Washington needs a complete victory. Destroyed Europe at its feet, which can be easily enslaved by financial and economic methods. Crushed Germany, Japan and the USSR. Washington needs to weaken the British Empire, to become an "older brother." War is the only salvation from the crisis of capitalism. It will revitalize the economy, allow you to stick to the destroyed, ruined countries. Deflate the wealth of Europe, Asia and plunder the main prize - Russia.
