From Dusk Till Dawn. The brutal contrast of Quentin Tarantino's plot is somewhat close to the topic I want to talk about.
To begin with, we will have to recall the First World War, in the unleashing of which there are several reasons for interstate contradictions and one reason. The main and common cause was developing capitalism, in which the struggle for primacy in world hegemony intensified, and Great Britain and Germany turned out to be the main rivals.
Therefore, all other reasons were grouped either in the Entente or in the Triple Alliance, led by the British and Germans. The war was inevitable, and anyone would have found a reason for it, with or without a shot from Gavrilo Princip.
It is strange that the Russian autocracy, in which most of the queens were German, and the emperors were "half-breeds", by the First World War seemed to have forgotten how the "Englishwoman crap", finding herself in alliance with the Anglo-Saxons, literally on the eve (not without the influence of the British), having experienced the shame of Tsushima.
The deadly First World War claimed over 10 million soldiers' lives and over 11 million civilian lives. Russia suffered the greatest losses.
At Versailles on June 28, 1919, an international document was signed, known as the Treaty of Versailles (or the Treaty of Versailles), which was the final point of the First World War. There are six main points in the agreement.
1. Germany and the Triple Alliance were declared the only culprits in the outbreak of war.
2. Reparations were imposed on Germany in favor of the victors.
3. The German armed forces were greatly reduced. Have modern military equipment, especially combat Aviation, Tanks and submarines, Germany was generally banned.
4. On different terms, Germany was torn away from her colonial possessions.
5. The territory of Germany itself was curtailed (including in favor of new states, for example, Poland and Czechoslovakia).
6. Economically developed regions, such as the Ruhr and Saar, were transferred under the control of representatives of the Entente.
With Kaiser's Germany and its allies, it seemed, and with the further possibility of such wars, was done away with. For this, the League of Nations was created by the Treaty of Versailles with the best wishes. The League was supposed to promote the "Eternal Peace", dealing with issues of disarmament, preventing hostilities, ensuring collective security, settling disputes between countries through diplomatic negotiations, as well as improving the very quality of life on the planet.
One of the main winners in the First World War was Great Britain, profited from the war and its former overseas colony, the United States, in which before the English capital in many respects found something that was not allowed in the metropolis, also grew stronger.
There is nothing surprising in the fact that after the genocide of the indigenous population of America, the slave trade and racism, the United States for Britain became a kind of free overseas enclave, through which it was possible to solve many world affairs, remaining in the shadows.
So why did the Third Reich subsequently emerge, and the even more monstrous Second World War broke out?
As shows история, Russia was needed by the British crown only when England needed to rake in the heat with someone else's hands, and never as a strong Russian state.
In this, the February Revolution, the abdication of Nicholas II, and the pro-Western Provisional Government were undoubted blessings for Great Britain. But instead of the Gaidars and Chubais of that era, a new force arose in Russia, the Soviet government, which was not controlled by world capital.
Therefore, Germany was already demanded to break all the agreements concluded earlier with Russia, in particular the Brest-Litovsk Treaty, in order to organize a predatory intervention by the Treaty of Versailles.
The intervention, like the civil war itself, did not destroy the Bolsheviks, the very integrity of Russia, the construction of a powerful workers 'and peasants' state was gaining momentum.
This had to be reckoned with, and this problem had to be solved by the powers that be.
The “antidote”, Hitler's Nazism, was directed at the emerging Soviet Union and the communists, and anti-USSR was created from the wounded and defeated Germany.
The Anglo-Saxons, who have a wealth of experience in political hypocrisy, duplicity and meanness, again decided to play off the Germans and Russians in order to solve their problems in this way, to cash in on the war again. Without the permission of England and the United States, without actually ignoring the requirements of Versailles, Hitler would not have built the Third Reich, he hardly ever came to power.
The new war was supposed to decide the fate of the Soviet Union for the sake of the world domination of the Anglo-Saxons, simultaneously putting an end to the last large empire in the East, Japan.
Hitler was systematically moved to power and helped to create him the economic power of the Third Reich.
To obtain the necessary potential, Nazi Germany was allowed to swallow Austria, treacherously gave up Czechoslovakia, and in the "strange war" subsequently practically all of Western Europe.
All for the sake of the main thing - the acquisition of military and economic power from Hitler, for an attack on the USSR.

Of course, one must distinguish between ordinary people, even individual politicians who sincerely and courageously fought against Nazism, and behind-the-scenes political puppeteers, the big capital lobby behind the governments of Great Britain and the United States.
Speaking about the role of the United States, it is necessary to highlight several main stages in the formation of Nazi Germany.
1.From 1919 to 1924: preparing the ground for massive American financial injections into the German economy.
2. From 1924 to 1929: taking control of the German financial system and financial support for National Socialism.
3. From 1929 to 1933: provoking and unleashing a deep financial and economic crisis and ensuring the Nazis come to power.
4.From 1933 to 1939: financial cooperation with Nazi Germany and support for Hitler's expansionist foreign policy aimed at preparing and unleashing a new world war.
Initially, the main levers for ensuring the penetration of American capital into Germany were military debts and the closely related problem of German reparations.
Already in the summer of 1924, at the London conference, a project would be adopted, known as the Dawes plan, which provided for halving the payment of reparations and decided on the sources of their coverage.
The main task was to provide favorable conditions for American investment, which was possible only with the stabilization of the Deutsche mark. For this, a large loan was envisaged for Germany - in the amount of $ 200 million. At the same time, the Anglo-American banks established control over both the transfer of German payments and the budget, the system of monetary circulation, and to a large extent the lending system itself.
American industrial corporations and banks, taking advantage of the situation, bought up the assets of most of Germany's key enterprises.
The financing of Hitler himself and his party was originally carried out through Swiss and Swedish banks, and from 1926 the financing of the Nazis began to be carried out directly through banks and industrial concerns in Germany.
In the fall of 1930, the United States was visited by the head of the German Reichsbank, Hjalmar Schacht, who directly negotiated with representatives of American business.
In private negotiations, Schacht spoke about the version of Adolf Hitler's coming to power in Germany, about his concept of the country's development, the strategy of combating Bolshevism.
After a series of economic metamorphoses on lending to the Weimar Republic, the Nazi National Socialist Workers' Party had a fabulous success - in September 1930, as a result of large donations, the Hitlerite party received 6,4 million votes. At the same time, the Nazis take second place in the Reichstag, after which new generous injections from abroad are activated. The main link between the largest German industrialists and foreign financiers is the same Hjalmar Schacht.
At the very beginning of January 1932, a meeting of the largest English financier Montagu Norman with Adolf Hitler and Franz von Papen took place, where a secret agreement was concluded to finance the Hitlerite party. Already on January 14, 1933, Adolf Hitler met with Kurt von Schroeder, Franz von Papen and Wilhelm Kepler, where Hitler's program was fully approved.
It was here that the issue of transferring power to the Nazis was finally resolved. On January 30, 1933, Hitler becomes Reich Chancellor.
On the eve of World War II, US corporations and banks invested a huge amount at that time, $ 800 million, in the industry and financial system of Nazi Germany. Of these, the top four from the United States invested about $ 200 million in Hitler's militarized economy. Standard Oil $ 120 million, General Motors $ 35 million, ITT's investment was $ 30 million, and Ford's $ 17,5 million.
Historical fact: even after the United States entered World War II on December 11, 1941, American corporations continued to actively fulfill orders of enemy firms, to support the activities of their branches in Germany.
The richest clans of Great Britain and the USA, their banks, also tarnished themselves in this case. For example, Morgan, Rockefeller, Rothschild and many others. These financial tycoons promoted the shares of the German IG Farbenindustrie and many other chemical plants of the Reich through their banks, and later completely began to control them.
One could say that nothing personal, just a business for which money does not smell. After all, the United States also helped the USSR, in particular under Lend-Lease, nevertheless, such a famous industrialist as Henry Ford had openly Nazi positions for a long time.
Ford received the "Order of Merit of the German Eagle", which was not a standard state award, but was a party order, for the disposition of the Hitler regime to this or that person, Henry Ford was also personally mentioned by Adolf Hitler in "Mein Kampf".
Received this award in 1937 and Thomas Watson, founder and owner of the now world famous company IBM.
Watson was awarded for invaluable assistance in equipping the Gestapo with computers when, in 1934, Dehomag, a subsidiary of IBM, won a tender for the supply of counting and cataloging machines for the German Reich Security Administration. In 1935 Thomas Watson visited Berlin and presented to the chief of the Gestapo the new Dehomag mod.1935 counting machine.
In general, sympathy for Nazism was observed even in the British royal family.
Oddly enough, but Adolf Hitler, in turn, already bowed before England, the success of the Anglo-Saxons in world influence and plunder of many countries gave Hitler a reason for envy.
At the same time, it is easier to understand why it was Hitler who was brought to power, whose order he had to fulfill, turning Germany and the Germans into cannon fodder against Bolshevism. Why did Hitler stop the offensive for three days, allowing the British troops to take their feet from Dunkirk, to have time to evacuate to his island? The propaganda operation "Sea Lion" remained a screen for the main purpose of Hitlerite Germany, the "Barbarossa" plan.
Here it is no longer "Germany above all else", but the British crown with its secret power over the world.
As for American aid to the USSR during World War II, it is useful to recall another politician, Harry Truman. Subsequently, Truman will express: “If we see that Germany is winning, then we should help Russia, and if Russia is winning, then we should help Germany, and thus let them kill as many as possible, although I would not like to see Hitler as the winner. under what circumstances. None of them keep their word. "
In this famous statement, the whole quintessence of the tactics of the Anglo-Saxons.
Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, as two antipodes, should have, if not destroyed each other, then weakened so that it was no longer difficult to finish off the survivor. Particularly touching in the text is the emphasis on "does not keep his word", said by a representative of a country that did not fulfill its guarantees to comply with the restrictions of Versailles, moreover, that directly nurtured German Nazism, the main winners of which in the United States after themselves are ranked. The keeping of the word by the politicians of the United States generally needs to be discussed separately.
The future "main victors" of Hitler had to prepare their own public to enter the Second World War. Here we have to remember about the Land of the Rising Sun, which at one time was armed by England and the United States, urging on Russia, which led to the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905. Japan also remained the last major empire to be reckoned with in the East and which also interfered with the plans of the Anglo-Saxons for world domination.
So, on the morning of December 7, 1941, Japanese aircraft struck an American the fleet at his main base in the Pacific.
Pearl Harbor (Pearl Harbor), already an American version, but not as unambiguous as Hitler's attack on the USSR ...
If the leadership of the Soviet Union tried with all its might, if not to avoid, then to delay the start of the war, then the US government with all its might needed to convince the American society of the need for the United States to enter the war. How can this be done if the American people resolutely did not want to go to the front to die, to get involved in the slaughter? There is no way without enemy treachery and sacred sacrifice.
How did an attack by Japan become possible, if many Japanese politicians and the military understood the doom of hopes of winning a war against an American economic colossus?
The clash of American and Japanese interests began long before December 7, 1941: the imposition of an embargo on the supply of crude oil by the United States in July 1941 already provoked Japan's aggression, since Japan received 80% of the necessary oil from Mexico and the United States. Nevertheless, it was the "Hull note" transmitted to Japan by the US Secretary of State on November 26, 1941, and became the last straw for Japan, an ultimatum leaving no choice.
For example, the Hull's note demanded that Japan should be deliberately impossible, namely, the withdrawal of troops from China and withdrawal from the Triple Pact concluded by Japan, Germany and Italy in September 1940. It is quite predictable that the Japanese side perceived the note as a demonstration of the US unwillingness to continue negotiations, as the inevitability of a military clash.
American bankers, industrialists, and politicians needed a war, and they got it.
As a result of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the opinion of the American public changed in one day to the exact opposite. Righteous anger demanded revenge.
Now about the “sacred sacrifice”. How could a surprise attack happen if from the end of 1940 the Americans knew the diplomatic codes of Japan and all Japanese diplomatic correspondence was not a secret for the United States? In addition, the British leadership had access to classified information from the Japanese naval forces and would hardly have hidden the strike plans from their closest allies.
It must be assumed that instead of the expected farce in the Japanese "unexpected" and desired by the American leadership attack, the United States got an unplanned tragedy. This could have been due to a misconception in the United States of the British attack by the Italian fleet in Taranto (November 11, 1940).
Many British torpedoes then, because of the shallow depths, simply buried themselves when dropped into the bottom of the harbor, although the British tried to preliminarily modify torpedoes for their carrier-based aircraft in this.
In Pearl Harbor, the depths were even shallower, besides, Japan was not armed with heavy armor-piercing bombs, which could pose a serious threat to the decks of US battleships, while the Americans removed the aircraft carriers from the base in advance.
The fact is that the Japanese also paid attention to the British attack on the Italian base and made the right conclusions about the possibility of destroying the enemy's fleet with one blow.
The heavy armor-piercing bombs were obtained after modification with parts of artillery shells from battleship cannons.
Aircraft torpedoes were equipped with additional, improved wooden stabilizers, allowing torpedoes to be used at shallow depths.
In addition, the Japanese were well prepared by training their pilots specifically on the intended targets at Pearl Harbor.
The attack was played out like clockwork. Aircraft "Nakajima" B5N2 in the first wave caused the main damage to the American fleet.
These 89 vehicles from the air groups of the 1st and 2nd divisions of Japanese aircraft carriers dropped 40 aircraft torpedoes (45% of hits) plus 49 armor-piercing 800-kilogram bombs (24,5% of hits), not counting numerous close explosions, which also caused damage to targets.
The main task of the Japanese strike, which was to neutralize the main forces of the US Pacific Fleet for a period of at least 6 months, was mainly completed even before dive bombers and torpedo bombers from the second wave appeared over Pearl Harbor, adding several more ships to the list of American losses ...
In total, 4 battleships sunk by the Japanese, 4 seriously damaged ships, plus 10 more ships that were either sunk or received damage incompatible with the possibility of recovery, fell into the "sacred sacrifice" for the United States.
At the airfields, 349 American aircraft were destroyed or damaged. The number of killed and wounded was 3581 military personnel and 103 civilians.
Such was the price of the United States entering World War II.
The irony of fate is that the Americans did not expect such losses, and the Japanese such luck, which very soon will have to turn their backs on them, and it is quite natural. Initially, Japan did not have a chance of winning the war, as did Hitler. The Germans and the Japanese, each in their own way, worked out the bloody order, where the tycoons of world capital made huge profits, gained world influence. The armies and peoples played the role of fighting dogs, ready to die for those who made their bets on them and made their own profit. Germany and Japan are still not only actually occupied territories by the Anglo-Saxons, but also their political "six". These “sixes” have already forgotten how their victorious masters burned alive not only the population of German Dresden, but also set up two nuclear crematoria, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, without feeling at all like criminals in such a genocide.
The main task of the Anglo-Saxons after the Second World War was not fulfilled, the Soviet Union not only withstood, but later became a nuclear and space superpower, gaining world authority in the victory over Nazism and with success in space exploration. A powerful bloc of socialist countries was also created, the world ceased to belong to one big capital.
But it was after World War II that London and Washington became the de facto leaders and monopoly masters of the entire world capitalist system. In this, their goal was achieved, and they did not intend to stop, unlike the same Nikita Sergeevich, Leonid Ilyich and even more so Mikhail Sergeevich, who wanted to find peaceful coexistence with a mortal enemy. Capitalism, on the other hand, knew how to dress in sheep skins, to make concessions when it felt strength.
Our grandfathers and fathers fought with a very powerful enemy, defeated Hitler, saved, raised the country. But the mighty Soviet Union fell before the evil British dwarf "Chernomor" and its overseas "beard", slain not in open battle, but by the meanness and hypocrisy of the Anglo-Saxons, by the betrayal inside the country of those who should have been in the forefront, in defense of the humane Soviet ideology and the USSR itself.
The dollar has become the world currency, capitalism is the only pole of power on the planet, the Anglo-Saxons are the leaders and masters of this pole. Everything they dreamed of: world domination, explicit and secret. The renegade traitors are now puffing out their cheeks, eating up the Soviet reserve of strength, talking about a "multipolar world", but keeping their treasures with Russia's enemies and briskly selling off its wealth. The cold hearts of the rich, the dragon that conquered the souls is in the morality of consumers and the cult of money.
What will happen to the Motherland and to us? What are the conclusions?
The already established transnational monopolies make competition a fiction. Disposable goods with quality for the duration of the guarantee and imposed services are the nearest prospect in the dictates of monopolies.
Eternal debtors, liquidation of cash, total control of deposits - the desired goal of bankers. Wars and epidemics, other troubles of mankind - to reset the world economic pyramid of capitalism, to write off the debts of its owners and new income. Tightening the screws and infringement of rights, digitization of society, new electronic slavery.
From dusk to dawn and from dawn to dusk under bloodsuckers, ready to preserve their power and super-profits for any crimes.
"The devil's greatest trick is to convince you that he doesn't exist." The glossy charms of capitalism are praised, the Soviet past is smeared with mud.
Are there really few of those now for whom the abundance of dry beer and the availability of a foreign car are the main criteria for the quality of life? And they see nothing more.
How long will those who are obsessed with billions, with complexes and manias parasitize on ordinary people of the East and West, will there be their own aspen stake for these ghouls?
Probably, their time cannot last forever, otherwise nothing good will shine for our civilization, only "zombieland". Presumably, capitalism has exhausted its positive in the development of society, turning our path to degradation and degeneration.
For Russia, the era of "supernap" would have ended better (like a vaccination against the planetary virus of capitalism). Having absorbed all the best, a renewed socialism could save not only Russia, but our entire planet.
Of course, this is only my personal opinion, which does not have to coincide with the opinions of other people, and even more so those who were obliged to have the necessary opinion.
