Preemptive Strikes are War Crimes (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 09/06/17 3:30 am)

"The Chamberlain-Hitler analogy has justified many a preemptive strike." No wiser words have ever been written, Thanks, John!

The preemptive strike is a war crime, a crime against peace and a crime against humanity.

As the Italian historian Arrigo Petacco recently wrote in his book La storia ci ha mentito (History has lied to us), official history is the greatest fraud (fake news we would say now) ever to appear in the human sciences from the day the alphabet was invented.

As soon as war starts, the first casualty is the truth. (Lies are necessary to galvanize a people and demonize the enemy.) But then when the war is over, the lies of the victors become the "official truth." The real truth never surfaces any more, especially if on top of this you place tribunals that do not allow the "official truth" to be reviewed and/or studied.

The victors may even be so arrogant as to prohibit the losers from studying national history in their schools for ten years (Japan 1945-55), and then for another 20 years to allow only politically correct history (again Japan). The trick of the politically correct has worked fantastically well in Germany and Italy.

A curiosity: who knows or has written that after the meeting between Churchill and Mussolini in 1927, the former became a collaborator in Mussolini's newspaper, with 14 articles published and paid for?  Perhaps Mussolini's famous bags of April 1945 also contained the receipts.

About appeasement: in the late 1930s did anyone ever study why it failed and how many millions of people could have been saved, of course starting from the truth of the moment and not from the a posteriori "official truth"?

Finally, is there anyone who really believes that Kim wants to submit his personal empire to the present Empire? Maybe he just wants to be sure that nobody is invading North Korea to bring democracy.

JE comments:  Doesn't everyone agree that Kim Jong-un wants to be sure nobody invades the North to bring democracy?  I believe Eugenio Battaglia goes one further, to argue that Kim would not start a war.  People of the opposite view, such as the Japanese, see the missile flyovers as acts of war in and of themselves.

Ed Jajko (next) brings us back to a preemptive strike of 1967:  Israel versus Egypt.
