Anyone who considers the condition of this country
and the world today, a year after the war was ended
or suspended in Europe, and looks with open and
honest eye down the road ahead, may well find these moving
lines of Ralph Chaplin's coming to his mind:

Pity the strong and pity the weak
Pity the arrogant, pity the meek
Pity the master and pity the drudge
Pity the prisoner and pity the judge
Pity the slayer and pity the slain
One is their destiny, one is their pain
Pity the greedy who thrive on despair
And pity a public too callous to care
Pity the rich and pity the poor
Pity the illness and pity the cure
Curse if you must and love if you can
But pity the terrible fortune of Man
Pity the great and pity the small
Pity them, pity them, pity them all.

It may be hard for some of us to remember that a year ago
the bloody struggle on Okinawa still continued in the tropic
night, that the atomic bomb and the Pandora's box of trouble
it opened upon the world was still to fall on Hiroshima, that
the Conference of the United Nations at San Francisco was
assembling to write the charter of eternal peace. Today it is
hard for anyone to forget the want, waste and woe, and the
wreckage of the world's hope of reconstruction, reconversion
and peace that have come with the ruthless struggle for power
and plunder abroad and at home which has followed the end
of the war only a few months ago. And it will be harder, I
feel sure, two weeks from now, to forget the sacrifice of those
million American sons and brothers who fell or suffered for
something other than all this on the battlefields of that war.

THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY MUST take the path less traveled and
reverse the direction taken in the war-torn twentieth century, the
bloodiest in history. When the First World War, where ten million
soldiers were killed, evolved into the Second World War, where
fifty million people were killed, we experienced the concept of
total war. A large percentage of the fifty million were civilians
(women and children) killed by British and American aircraft
which dropped bombs on nonmilitary targets in order to demoralize
the enemy. In other words, the end justified the means.
The Second World War ended with the first atomic bombs
being dropped on Japan, despite the fact that for months Japan
had been offering to surrender if they could keep their Emperor.
This offer was refused because of Roosevelt’s unconditional surrender
policy which Truman also adopted. After America dropped
the bombs, and after Russia had been in the war for six days, we
accepted their surrender and let the Japanese keep their Emperor.
The war was followed by the Nuremberg and Tokyo trials
which established, for the future, that the political and military
leaders who lose a war will be tried by the victors and then executed.
This established the pattern that no military or political
leader will be willing to lose a war, therefore ensuring it will escalate
into a total war to avoid losing and being executed.
The twenty-first century, I believe, will be the nuclear century
since this amazing source of energy, i.e., uranium, holds the promise
of future prosperity for the rapidly growing industrialized world.
However, if nuclear power is used in a total war, we literally face

the possible extinction of the human race, or at least the destruction
of Western Civilization.
We must learn to avoid war and develop a general will to
peace. I believe the key to this development is to learn the truth
about the real causes and effects of wars so that we can see
through the false propaganda which is used by political leaders to
convince us to go to war.
I am advocating the careful study of history for the purpose of
developing this will to peace. One of my favorite history professors
is Ralph Raico who tells the story of asking his college students,
“What is history?” and one of the students replied, “It’s just one
damn thing after another.” Henry Ford said, “History is bunk,”
meaning that it is usually false and misleading rather than unimportant
when correctly written. In Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary,
he defined history as “an account, mostly false of events
mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers, mostly
knaves, and soldiers, mostly fools.” However, when history is written
truthfully I believe that Bolingbroke gave the best definition,
“History is philosophy teaching by example.” If we can read history
by looking at past events to determine what ideas were being
followed, we can see how those ideas worked out in practice and
learn lessons from the experience of others and avoid the same
mistakes. The extreme importance of history and its study was
cogently stated by Patrick Henry, “I have but one lamp by which
my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of
no other way of judging the future but by the past.”
The big question about history is usually “What are the true
facts?” You cannot always rely on eyewitnesses since they may
have a bias. Sometimes diaries and writings made contemporaneously
are true but are not found for many years, decades, or centuries.
It is almost impossible for history to be written without the
writer’s judgment or bias being expressed in the form of an interpretation.
Therefore, history is always evolving and it is always
subject to revision by better and more reliable evidence.
This brings us to the controversial question of “What is revisionism?”
Usually when some establishment position is questioned
as to its authenticity and a new version is proposed, it is
PREFACE
11
condemned as “revisionism” or an effort to distort the truth, when
in fact, the revisionism may state the correct facts. The best definition
of revisionism was stated by one of America’s foremost revisionist
historians, Harry Elmer Barnes, “Revisionism is bringing
history into accord with the facts.” In George Orwell’s famous
novel Nineteen Eighty-Four he depicts “revisionism” as a word of
opprobrium and demonstrates it with the governmental department
entitled “The Ministry of Truth” where history is intentionally
falsified to obscure the past because people who do not know
the truth about the past, and cannot learn lessons from history,
are more easily controlled by the government, not only in the
present, but for the future. Therefore, when the word revisionism
is used, it must be determined in what context it is being used, i.e.,
whether the definition stated by Barnes, or in the sense of George
Orwell’s novel.
One of the most dramatic examples of true revisionism concerns
the “Donation of Constantine.” This was a document
widely circulated for centuries throughout Western Civilization
which was alleged to be a document composed by the Emperor
Constantine (272–337) which made a gift of Rome and the western
part of the Roman Empire to Pope Sylvester while the eastern
part of the empire was established at the capital of Constantinople.
This alleged donation constituted the cornerstone of the
papal claim for both religious and secular power in Rome, which
is one of the reasons, for instance, that Charlemagne traveled to
Rome to be crowned as emperor by the Pope on Christmas day in
800. It was not until the fifteenth century that Lorenzo Valla
(1407–57) exposed this document as a complete forgery, thereby
causing tremendous repercussions in Western Civilization from
that time forward relating to both the secular and papal sovereignty
and power of Rome.
It is in regard to war, however, that most revisionism becomes
necessary because truth is almost always the first casualty of war.
In most wars throughout history, the political leaders first need to
gain the support of the citizens who must fight, pay taxes, and
sacrifice their lives. To obtain popular approval leaders have
often used false propaganda to state the reasons for the war. False
A CENTURY OF WAR: LINCOLN, WILSON, AND ROOSEVELT
12
propaganda often continues throughout the war to instill hatred of
the enemy and finally, it is used at the end to prove that it was a just
war, thereby justifying the sacrifices made by the citizens. Since winners
write the history, the false propaganda used from the beginning
to the end is often accepted as the true history of the war.
One clear and dramatic incident relating to war and “good
revisionism” was an incident known as the Katyn Forest massacre
which was used during World War II, and in many history books
since that date, to show the Germans’ atrocities. The Katyn Forest
is located in modern-day Belarus. In September of 1939 both Germany
and the Soviet Union invaded Poland and occupied it
jointly. It was reported later that thousands of Polish army officers,
political leaders, intellectuals, and teachers had been rounded up,
massacred, and buried in mass graves. In 1943 a grave was discovered
which contained over 15,000 of these missing persons, piled
on top of each other and each had a single bullet hole in the back
of the head. The wartime propaganda of America, the British, and
the Soviets was that the Germans were guilty of this atrocity. The
graves of the remaining persons have never been disclosed or discovered.
This allegation of mass murder helped to fuel hatred toward
the Germans, as did other false allegations, all clearly revealed in
The Propaganda Warriors: America’s Crusade Against Nazi Germany
by Clayton D. Lauria and ‘Twas a Famous Victory: Deception and
Propaganda in the War Against Germany, by Benjamin Colby. During
the 1970s and 80s I read various accounts that cast doubt
about the truth of the wartime propaganda relating to the Katyn
Forest massacre. But it was not until 1989 that Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev produced the actual documents which
revealed conclusively that the Soviet secret police, under the specific
orders of Joseph Stalin in 1940, murdered 21,587 Polish enemies
of the Soviet state and buried most of them in this particular
grave. Gorbachev did not reveal any documents showing the
location of the remaining graves.1
1The plaque at this grave site blaming the Germans for the Katyn Forest
atrocity was removed once this information was made known.
PREFACE
13
The false propaganda against the Germans in World War I is
shown in detail by an excellent book entitled Falsehood in Wartime:
Propaganda Lies of the First World War by Arthur Ponsonby, a member
of the British Parliament. False propaganda was also employed
by government officials leading up to and during World War II. A
study of the false propaganda in World War II shows that no lie was
too large to prevent its use against Hitler and no crime of Stalin was
too large to prevent its being hidden from the American public.
We now know since new documents have been discovered by
the research of R.J. Rummel and revealed in his books Death by
Government and Power Kills that Stalin was the world’s foremost
murderer and that Mao of China was number two, making communism
the deadliest political philosophy in all history. At the
end of World War II far more people were living under tyranny
than before the war. This tyranny was communism. However, the
war was labeled as a great victory over tyranny because of the
defeat of Hitler.
One of the purposes of this book is to show the importance of
revisionism because I believe it is one of the main keys to developing
a general will to peace for the future. The following essays
were written at various times and for different purposes, i.e., book
reviews, a speech, and then articles for books. They all relate to
history primarily involving the real causes of war as well as the
actual results. A study of history like this, I believe, will help make
people more aware of the fabricated propaganda that appears as
history today, not only in the history books, but often in the news
media about the causes and the effects of war. Americans, in particular,
seem to be very naïve about the real causes and effects of
wars and tend to accept at face value the reasons given by politicians.
If Americans would be more skeptical and question the
reasons given by politicians to enter into war, and further insist
that only Congress can declare war (which the Constitution
specifically requires), rather than letting presidents get us into
wars, we will see fewer wars. Also, if history is studied to understand
the real causes and effects of war and the loss of freedom
that results even in winning a war, this would increase that skepticism.

An excellent introduction to revisionism can be obtained by
reading a book by Harry Elmer Barnes entitled Revisionism: A Key
to Peace and Other Essays, which was published by the Cato Institute
in 1980. Another good introduction to the subject is James J.
Martin’s Revisionist Viewpoints: Essays in a Dissident Historical Tradition.
These books will introduce the reader to many other
detailed histories which delve into the real background of American
wars. Much excellent research has been done and published,
but the public-at-large is not aware of these books because there
are certain gatekeepers such as the Council on Foreign Relations,
who have reasons to prevent this knowledge from reaching the
general public.
After World War I there was a tremendous amount of revisionism
showing the false propaganda used by President Wilson
and others to get America into that war. After the war a thorough
investigation also showed there were certain economic
interests of bankers and munition makers who encouraged the
war for their own financial profit, which was the first real indication
of the industrial-military-banking complex. Congressional
investigations that followed exposed the abuse of power that
took America into World War I and resulted in the Neutrality
Acts being passed to try to prevent future unnecessary or unjust
American wars.
By the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7,
1941, public opinion polls showed that over 80 percent of the
American public was opposed to entering another European war.
It took the dramatic event of the attack on Pearl Harbor to shift
public opinion overwhelmingly to support our entry into the war.
The public was unaware of the evidence that we now have that
Roosevelt had provoked the attack on Pearl Harbor and actually
withheld information from the military commanders stationed
there, which, if furnished to them, would have probably prevented
the attack. There is also much excellent revisionist history
that President Lincoln provoked the firing on Fort Sumter for
economic reasons having nothing to do with the abolition of slavery.
Two essays in this book address these subjects of provoking
the first shot in some detail.

THE NAMELESS WAR
Here is the story that people have said would never be written in our time — the true
history of events leading up to the Second World War, told by one who enjoyed the
friendship and confidence of Mr. Neville Chamberlain during the critical months
between Munich and September, 1939.
There has long been an unofficial ban on books dealing with what Captain Ramsay
calls "The Nameless War", the conflict which has been waged from behind the political
scene for centuries, which is still being waged and of which very few are aware.
The publishers of "The Nameless War" believe this latest exposure will do more than
any previous attempt to break the conspiracy of silence.
The present work, with much additional evidence and a fuller historical background, is
the outcome of the personal experiences of a public figure who in the course of duty
has discovered at first-hand the existence of a centuries old conspiracy against Britain,
Europe, and the whole of Christendom.
"The Nameless War" reveals an unsuspected link between all the major revolutions in
Europe — from King Charles I's time to the abortive attempt against Spain in 1936.
One source of inspiration, design and supply is shown to be common to all of them.
2
These revolutions and the World War of 1939 are seen to be integral parts of one and
the same master plan.
After a brief review of the forces behind the declaration of war and the world wide
arrests of many who endeavoured to oppose them, the author describes the anatomy
of the Revolutionary International machine — the machine which today continues the
plan for supranational world power, the age-old Messianic dream of International
Jewry.
It is the author's belief that the machine would break down without the support of its
unwilling Jews and unsuspecting Gentiles and he puts forward suggestions for
detaching these elements.
Christians say . . .
"Captain Ramsay, a Christian gentleman of unflagging courage, believed that the
war with Germany was not conceived in the interests of Britain and could lead
only to the extension of Communist and Jewish power. Because he warned his
fellow countrymen of the forces at work, he was put in prison without trial for four
and a half years, for 'reasons' so preposterous that those who framed them
dared not submit them to a court of law." Truth
"For years Captain Ramsay had been a member of the British Parliament. His
book is an analysis of the Jewish-Zionist war against Christian civilization." The
Cross and the Flag
Jews say . . .
"There is no limit to the depths of human depravity, Captain Maule Ramsay . . .
seems to have made a very determined attempt to plumb those depths." The
Jewish Chronicle
"The publication of such a book, at this time, underlines the urgent need for the
law to be reformed so as to make it a crime to preach racial hatred or publish
libels on groups in the community." The Daily Worker

Astounding! Alarming! ... And yet at last, with this -- Mike Ruppert's
beyond-courageous offering -- we gain sight of the whole of
corporate-managed, government-assisted, bank-laundered, drug-funded
plunder. And a jolt to spur our movements to take back the world.
— Chellis Glendinning, PhD, author of Chiva:
A Village Takes on the Global Heroin Trade and Off the Map:
An Expedition Deep into Empire and the Global Economy
Mike Ruppert was one of the first journalists to understand the concept and
importance of Peak Oil. What is more important, he has connected the dots:
he understands the relationships between this historic watershed and the
geopolitical events of our time. Mike still has the instincts of a cop (which
he once was), but the criminals he is tracking these days are no small-time
hoodlums; they are some of the most powerful people on the planet. If you
want to understand the dynamics of the oil-money-drugs-and-war imperial
system in which we are all embedded, start with this book.
— Richard Heinberg, author of The Party's Over and Powerdown
Mike Ruppert represents, from top to bottom, the best tradition of an
independent thinking, open-minded, uncorrupt able, humorous, prudent,
American Cop. After running during his police career into conflicts with the
drug dealing part of the CIA, Mike knows that government information
seldom equals its disinformation. The doubt about the official 9/11 story
brought us together. From the first day after 9/11, I could follow his
scouting into the real world behind government propaganda. I firmly believe
at the end of three years of conducting a really independent investigation,
that Ruppert is not only heading in the right direction, but also touching
the inner sanctum of the hidden government agenda.
— Andreas Von Bulow, former German Cabinet Minister and Parliamentary
Secretary, author of The CIA and September 11
Fasten your thinking caps! Something is clearly terribly wrong at the heart of
American politics. The same is true of the mainstream media. Reporters just
aren't asking enough difficult and dangerous questions. Michael Ruppert has
been asking disconcerting but critical questions for more than two decades, even
when it meant confronting unpleasant truths that challenge the very basis of
industrial society. His unflinching reporting on the facts behind the coming
decline of global petroleum has been an extraordinary service to the world.
Whatever you think of Ruppert's bold hypotheses about the geopolitics of oil,
this provocative book will force you to confront the contradictions of our
increasingly unsustainable global economy.
— Julian Darley, author of High Noon for Natural Gas: The New Energy Crisis,
founder and director of The Post Carbon Institute,
and founder of www.globalpublicmedia.com
I'm proud Mike asked me to appear in his seminal film, The Truth and Lies of
9/11. Mike has traveled and studied the Peak Oil issue with world renowned
experts, and he and I share an abiding shock at the rampant despoilment of our
planet, through fake stoked resource wars that have real consequences in real
lives. Mike has something to say and I'm going to listen.
— US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, Georgia
Mike Ruppert's work should be a household item for any American Muslim, Jew
or Christian looking to understand the difference between authentic religious
piety versus the criminality that occupies much of the headlines these days. He
brings this home for every American by exposing the perpetrators here within
our own government, most notably using 9-11 as a paradigm. All folk of religion
must have the courage to expose the agendas that use 'religion' as a guise, be
these agendas in the name of 'Islamic resurgence' or 'Securing the Jewish State.'
Kudos to Mike, one of the last of the true-blooded Americans around.
— Faiz Khan M.D., Triage Emergency Physician on 9-11,
Assistant Imam, New York
In a sector rife with disinformation and ill-informed comment, Michael
Ruppert's work stands out as a conspicuous beacon of valuable well-informed
analysis. His claims are bold and contrarian and have dramatic implications for
the global oil price should the global economy experience a sustained recovery
while Iraqi oil supplies are curtailed. Ruppert believes (with ample
documentation to justify his view) that depletion dynamics will fuel energy
price appreciation more in this cycle than any prior one. If he is anywhere
near correct, as we believe, the oil market will begin an historic cyclical upmove
with a tighter supply demand balance than at any prior cycle. For anyone
wishing to understand the full ramifications of this for the
energy markets and global economy, Ruppert's work is invaluable.

Michel Chossudovsky

“Material this provocative and well researched must not be ignored.” Scott Loughrey, The Baltimore Chronicle “Chossudovsky’s book presents its readers with a harsh reality: terrorism is a tool used to maintain and expand the growth of corporate capitalism, led by the U.S. dollar and backed by U.S. military might. His book is one of those ‘connect-the-dots’ works that should be required reading, especially for media-misled, history-starved Americans.” Kellia Ramares, Online Journal “Canadian professor of economics Michel Chossudovsky contains that rare gift of a writer who can compile massive documentary evidence, then propound it in a succinct, lucid manner. His book cuts through the morass of Bush verbiage, daring readers to examine the pure, unvarnished truth of a nation using its military and intelligence capabilities to control the global oil market on the pretext of making the world a safer place.” William Hare, Amazon.com “Chossudovsky has written an alarming book that ought to serve as a wakeup call for every citizen of the world. In a very straightforward manner, Chossudovsky uncovers the truth behind America’s covert intelligence operations, international economic interests, and goals of US foreign policy.” Anthony Lafratta, Chapters-Indigo.

 

America’s “War on Terrorism”

Second Edition

HDR05_complete.pdf, (6.17MB)
The 2005 Human Development
Report
This Report is about the scale of the challenge
facing the world at the start of the 10-year
countdown to 2015. Its focus is on what governments
in rich countries can do to keep their side
of the global partnership bargain. This does not
imply that governments in developing countries
have no responsibility. On the contrary, they
have primary responsibility. No amount of international
cooperation can compensate for the
actions of governments that fail to prioritize
human development, to respect human rights,
to tackle inequality or to root out corruption.
But without a renewed commitment to cooperation
backed by practical action, the MDGs
will be missed—and the Millennium Declaration
will go down in history as just one more
empty promise.
We focus on three pillars of cooperation,
each in urgent need of renovation. The first pillar
is development assistance. International aid
is a key investment in human development. Returns
to that investment can be measured in the
human potential unleashed by averting avoidable
sickness and deaths, educating all children,
overcoming gender inequalities and creating
the conditions for sustained economic growth.
Development assistance suffers from two problems:
chronic underfinancing and poor quality.
There have been improvements on both fronts.
But much remains to be done to close the MDG
financing gaps and improve value for money.
The second pillar is international trade.
Under the right conditions trade can be a
powerful catalyst for human development.
The Doha “Development Round” of World
Trade Organization (WTO) talks, launched
in 2001, provided rich country governments
with an opportunity to create those conditions.
Four years on, nothing of substance has been
achieved. Rich country trade policies continue
to deny poor countries and poor people a fair
share of global prosperity—and they fly in the
face of the Millennium Declaration. More than
aid, trade has the potential to increase the share
of the world’s poorest countries and people
in global prosperity. Limiting that potential
through unfair trade policies is inconsistent
with a commitment to the MDGs. More than
that, it is unjust and hypocritical.
The third pillar is security. Violent conflict
blights the lives of hundreds of millions
of people. It is a source of systematic violations
of human rights and a barrier to progress towards
the MDGs. The nature of conflict has
changed, and new threats to collective security
have emerged. In an increasingly interconnected
world the threats posed by a failure
to prevent conflict, or to seize opportunities
for peace, inevitably cross national borders.
More effective international cooperation could
help to remove the barrier to MDG progress
created by violent conflict, creating the conditions
for accelerated human development and
real security.
The renovation needs to take place simultaneously
on each pillar of international cooperation.
Failure in any one area will undermine the
foundations for future progress. More effective
rules in international trade will count for little
in countries where violent conflict blocks opportunities
to participate in trade. Increased
aid without fairer trade rules will deliver suboptimal
results. And peace without the prospects
for improved human welfare and poverty
reduction that can be provided through aid and
trade will remain fragile.
William_Blum-Rogue_State(2002).pdf, (3.37MB)

"Whatever we think we know about U.S. foreign policy, Rogue State makes it clear that we don't know nearly enough. This book's grisly content may seem to require a strong
stomach, but reading its words is nothing compared to what has been done—and keeps being done—with our tax dollars and in our names. Whether we read Rogue State as a
historical narrative or use it as a reference book, William Blum has put together a horrifying and infuriating piece of work. The footnoted information between these covers
is enough to make any awake reader want to scream with rage. This is a truly subversive book because it demolishes the foundations of basic illusions about the United States of
America as a world power."

— Norman Solomon, author of The Habits of Highly 
    Deceptive Media

     and winner of the George Orwell Award

"Nech už si myslíme čokoľvek, že vieme o zahraničnej politike USA, Rogue state  nám dá jasne najavo, že toho nevieme dosť. Strašný obsah tejto knihy si zdanlivo bude vyžadovať dostatočne silný žalúdok čitateľa, ale čítanie  nie je ničím v porovnaní s tým, čo bolo urobené a čo sa stále deje za peniaze amerických daňových poplatníkov a v ich mene. Či už sme čítali Rogue state ako historický príbeh alebo  ako referenčnú príručka, William Blum dal dokopy kus práce, ktorý vyvoláva v čitateľovi hrôzu a nezmieriteľný hnev. Poznámky a imformacie medzi obalom tejto knihy sú postačujúce , aby sa každý čitateľ  zobudil a kričal od zlosti. Táto kniha je naozaj podvratná, pretože rúca  základy akýchkoľvek ilúzií o Spojených štátoch, o Amerike ako svetovej  veľmoci."
