April 24th, 2015.
ANZAC Day 2015 100th “Anniversary” of the Dardanelles Fiasco.
Tomorrow, April 25th will mark the 100th anniversary of the failed British, Australian and New Zealand attack on Gallipoli, Turkey. This is an extremely big deal in Australia because the First World War was the first major war for the Australian military, Australia having become an independent nation at the beginning of 1901 and Gallipoli was the first battle of that war.
The Gallipoli campaign involved an eight month attack on a remote region of Turkey for unknown reasons that left more than 6,000 Australians dead and achieved absolutely nothing positive, other than for the Turks, whose Commander at Gallipoli Kamal Attaturk rose to lead the post Ottoman Turkish nation who justifiably celebrate their great victory at Gallipoli.
World War 1 for Australia- a Human Catastrophe Borne of Blind Loyalty to the British Empire.
To Remember the soldiers who died in our name is a very good thing, to do otherwise would be unthinkable, but we do the sacrifice they made a disservice if we neglect to mention the context in which the wars were fought. The reasons or lack thereof for the sacrifice that we commemorate.
World War I was completely unnecessary, achieved absolutely nothing and ultimately was little more than an elite organised mass human blood sacrifice. Neither Australia nor even Britain were under any real threat. The lesson we have only half learned is that Australia should never become involved in Imperial wars that have no bearing on Australia and take place in distant continents ever again.
More than 420,000 Australians participated in World War 1, more than 60,000 died and 137,000 more were wounded.
In 1915, the Australian population was recorded at fewer than 5 million, Translated into today’s Australia with a population of around 23 million people, that would be the equivalent of more than 270,000 killed and 630,000 wounded and a deployment of 2 million. The scale of the deployment was clearly pure madness.
A Very Brief History of the Australian Military.
Like all forces that are not great powers, the history of the Australian Military is of little interest to outsiders. To put it in the simplest terms, by and large the history of the Australian military is a very respectable one, albeit almost always in the capacity of the imperial Janissary. This overall relatively positive history is marred by two major calamities. The calamities were the World War 1 involvement and the consequences of the fall of Singapore in early 1942 that saw thousands of Australian forces trapped and captured by the Japanese Army.
Each of these calamities was caused by blind faith in Britain and the naive, indeed idiotic belief that Britain would act loyally towards Australia.
The Birth of a Nation?
It seems mad that the single most disastrous decision ever made by an Australian government should be celebrated in any way. Did anyone actually think to ask the Australian Prime Minister Billy Hughes at the end of the war,what Australia had achieved for the loss of 60,000 dead men (and women)?
The answer for decades was that it was worth it because the valor of our troops proved to the British that Austral ans were no longer convicts, but honorable and worthy of respect. That seems to be why the catastrophe occurred, the desperate desire for the approval of the British establishment mobilised the Australian politicians and people alike it seems.
It appears that Australians were intensely brainwashed to respect the British establishment despite their transparently criminal and vile nature and to take seriously the whole “island of reprobates” myth.
The Meaning of Independence.
Even when the war is portrayed critically we are delivered simple minded trash about it all being the fault of the British aristocrats who led the British army at that time.
Yet it was Australian politicians that wasted hundreds of millions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of young Australian lives on the basis of the pathetic fantasy of winning the respect of the British.
The story of Gallipoli only goes to show that in 1915 Australia was independent in name only and that the mindset of the Australian political leadership was no more than obedience and fealty to the British.
The Convict Stain is a Joke.
The real crime, the real stain we bear as Australians is that of the destruction and displacement of the indigenous Australian civilisation that we displaced and largely destroyed.It is obvious to anyone with any sense that the whole convict story was a bunch of self serving tosh the British used to mask the real crime, the theft of the continent and the declaration that the existing inhabitants were flora and fauna!.
The British had recently abolished slavery, but the slave owner mindset persisted The British wanted to steal Australia and there was a lack of volunteers,so the convict transportations were simply a means by which to press gang sufficient numbers of the British underclass to leave and at the same time also provide a slave labor work force to help induce the free settlers to join the colony. Settlers and workers were required in order to populate the continent. and thus extend their Empire to the southern island continent, the convicts were two birds with one stone. Many of the people they sent were criminals, but many were not. People were transported for belonging to Trade Unions and the rule of Law was an absolute joke in Britain as remains the case to this very day.The truly wicked British criminals rule and live behind a veil of legal impunity and do not hesitate to frame any who threaten their position.
Today a man named Michael Shrimpton sits in a British jail because he offered intelligence about a terror threat in good faith to the British government. The corruption is truly breathtaking and was presumably even more pronounced in the 18th century. All the findings of British courts both then and now can thus be treated with skepticism if not outright contempt
The British System is Completely Corrupt, Hypocritical and Morally Bankrupt.
High status individuals still enjoy immunity from prosecution. The nauseating case of the pathetic worm Greville Janner makes it absolutely clear that this persists to this very day. So of course the people transported were almost all members of the underclass, the upper echelon criminals enjoyed immunity in Britain in the 18th century as they do today.
A week before the DPP Alison Saunders adjudged Janner unfit for trial on dozens of cases of child rape Janner had written and signed a letter to the House of Lords stating that he would like to extend his leave from the House, this fact surely makes the position of the DPP completely untenable. How is that possibly tolerable? Not only is it tolerable but this is the British way, this is the tradition.
So the whole idea that Australia was a “nation of miscreants” in need of redemption from the “convict stain” was pure nonsense, a farce that the British managed to inculcate in Australians and this was a root cause of the catastrophe of Australia in World War 1.
It is astonishing the way the Australian leadership and people were never able to see Britain for what it was, a criminal Empire run by feudalist crime lords with sick predilections and no legitimate claim to the throne under the supposed bloodline system.
The real British monarch is some anonymous bloke who lives in country New South Wales. Not that it matters.
Transportation for whatever reason was thus a rescue, the Australians were at least physically, beyond the clutches of the venal and wicked British establishment. They deserve gratitude for that if nothing else.
Head Office Moves to Washington DC.
It made perfect sense for Australia to transfer loyalties to the new head office of the empire, Washington DC during World War 2 and all in all, coup aside, the Americans were a far better ally than the UK for the obvious reason that the American leadership did not share the neuroses and class obsessions of the British establishment.
Australian forces participated in the Korean and Vietnam wars, suffering around 500 deaths in each, lost forty soldiers in the Afghan war,(the US remains but the Australians have departed) and also participated in the criminal attack on iraq,This means that the former Australian PM John Howard is an unprosecuted war criminal along with Bush, Blair and the rest.Howar deserves condemnation as for the =decision to join the criminal coalition of the willing.
From a purely Australian viewpoint Howard deserves immense credit for not subjecting the Australian military to the nightmare occupation of Iraq. As a result Australia suffered zero combat fatalities in the Iraq war in contrast to the 150 plus British troops and 4800 Americans that died there.
In Vietnam, Korea in Afghanistan and most of all in Iraq, the US took more than their fair share of the casualties.
The US population is 15 times Australia, between these three wars the US has taken almost 70,00 kia whereas Austrlai suffered around 550, rounding up. These casualties are only 10% of the US based on population. The Australian casualties were very low proportionally, unlike World War 1 when Australian casualties were among the highest for any participant.
Other than World War 2 All Australian wars were Wars of Choice Acting as Imperial Auxiliaries.
Beyond the many wars for the sake of the alliance, there have been Australian military operations in East Timor and the Solomon Islands, I categorise East Timor as a peace keeping operation that was not aggressive in intent. War like incidents took place, If you call that a War it was an exception to the rule. It was not an act of aggression, they didn’t attack East Timor anymore than Russia attacked Crimea in March 2014. It was a show of force operation that was sanctioned by the UN and it did not lead to major violence. That is not to understate the risks to the soldiers stationed there, it just wasn’t a war in the negative sense and did not lead to a bloodbath but rather reduced the violence. If an operation reduces the violence in an area as that operation did, it is not a war in my opinion .
The Same Old Rhetoric but the Lesson Was Learned.
A century and many wars later, Australia’s World War 1 casualties still comprise well over 50^ of the total Australian military death toll. Australia remains a Janissary nation but the politicians who followed Hughes never showed the same callous indifference towards Australian lives, nothing like it. That is one thing that deserves gratitude, but it also shows what a maniac Hughes must have been to send ALMOST 10 PERCENT OF THE ENTIRE POPULATION (8.4%) in a war no one can explain even a century later that had no bearing on Australia’s vital interests. Billy Hughes, the British born Australian politician who sent all those men to die for nothing deserves to be remembered as quite simply the worst “Australian” politician who ever lived. Funnily enough he was British.
The fact that this man is greeted with the same reverence attended any other dead politician merely shows how supine and asleep we apparently remain.
Still the 40 soldiers killed in Afghanistan in an unwinnable war with ridiculous aims incited by an obvious and proven false flag attack that really had nothing to do with Afghanistan even by the Official story. The proponents of the war tried to say that terrorists trained in Afghanistan. It was true that MI and CIA maintained training bases for jihadists there, Osama bin Laden helped run some of their camps. But much of the training for 911 according to the Official story , took place in the USA, this is where the pilots trained, others supposedly took martial arts, so you might just as well invade America as Afghanistan, it was that silly. And as for the idea that a progressive social order can be imposed upon people by the force of arms and military occupation. It is pure stupidity. No one surely really believes that sending heavily armed men to occupy a nation and bombing it extensively from the air will have a moderating influence? No one could possibly be so silly to believe that could they?
As if you need to occupy a country for more than a decade in order to wipe out a couple of training camps that the US air force could destroy completely in around two minutes. I feel terrible for the soldiers that had to go through the ordeal, they are the real victims in this matter, not the people who sit at home. There is no point trying to lie and pretend that the war was a good idea or for a just cause, no matter how well intentioned the participants, when it wasn’t. It just wasn’t.
The Hard Lesson.
A security policy that is anchored in one alliance with one very powerful nation has many shortcomings and problems. It is not the fault of the American people that their nation has been seized and is under the control of a psychopathic crime syndicate, but it has happened, the success of the September 11th false flag massacre makes this fact inescapable. Until the US is liberated from these sinister forces, the alliance , which has overall been relatively cost free for Australia could become a poisonous thing. If the Washington warmongers decide to do something really mad like a major war with Russia or China, or even Iran, Australia must be a voice of moderation and sanity and we must never again throw our people away in the Empire’s Wars of choice.
The Bottom Line.
Although the casualties at least are minute compared to the World War 1 nightmare, the truth is the Australian military should only be used to defend the Australian nation and should only ever be deployed overseas on peace keeping operations such as East Timor and the Solomon Islands. If the Australian nation is to mature we must recognise that the only true security comes from independent means of defence that do not presume the assistance of any ally.
