Pentagon accused the Soviet Union at the beginning of World War II


May 6, 2020 Pentagon опубликовал a multimedia presentation dedicated to the Second World War, entitled "Victory Day in Europe: a time of celebration, reflection." This was done on the eve of the 75th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany, the date of which the United States and its Western allies traditionally consider May 8.


The table of contents immediately indicated that on this day (VE Day), "Germany unconditionally surrendered to the allies, including the United States." It should be noted that in the United States May 8–9 are not celebratory, although some celebrations dedicated to those events do take place in places. So it is not surprising that the Americans approached the issue in their "exclusivity."

For example, next to the photograph of the “Meeting on the Elbe” bas-relief from the World War II memorial in Washington, where the meeting of Soviet and American soldiers in April 1945 is shown, there is a text that does not apply to the image at all. The Americans not only did not mention the contribution of the Soviet people to the Victory, they generally cynically ignored the USSR. But they wrote about the role of the United States in the liberation of Europe, starting with the landing in Normandy.

The war was raging for almost five years, when on June 6, 1944, US and allied forces landed on the coast of French Normandy. The invasion marked the beginning of the end for Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany. In less than a year, Germany will surrender and Hitler will be dead. But in a speech to the nation on Victory Day, President Harry S. Truman warned that the Allies should “work to end the war” by defeating the Japanese in the Pacific

- the text says.

After that it is said that initially, on May 7, the surrender of German troops was signed by Colonel General Alfred Jodl in France. However, on May 8, “at the insistence of Joseph Stalin,” a re-signing ceremony was held with the participation of German field marshal Wilhelm Keitel.

It is reported that the surrender of Germany marked the end of the war in Europe, which killed tens of millions of people.

The conflict in 1939 began with Germany and the Soviet Union invading Poland. Among the dead there were about 6 million Jews who were killed by Nazi Germany. About 250 thousand American troops were also killed during the fighting at the European theater of operations

- Direct accusation against the USSR is being caught.

In addition, the presentation mentions that France "took over most of the severity of the fighting." About the USSR they indicated only that "the Soviets celebrate their Victory Day on May 9th."

It is further described that after the victory over Germany, the war with the participation of the USA and allies continued in Asia and the Pacific against Japan.

The regions of Western Europe freed by the allied forces will become prosperous democracies, and the liberated countries in the east will be occupied by the Soviet troops for decades.

- emphasized in the presentation.

At the same time, the presentation text was mainly accompanied by photographs of the US military.

    In Ukraine, in just 6 years, the brains of the local "horses" were so thoroughly reflashed, and in 75 years in Europe they were modest, and they began to do it intensively only recently, apparently, they lost their last conscience to please their American master.

    The war began with the fact that Poland and Germany occupied Czechoslovakia! And the Yankees financed Hitler's rise to power, in the USA there was a large Nazi party!

    And our hooray media also like to deny and blame the USA for 2MB for all the good.

    It would be strange if the presentation of our Defense Ministry was illustrated with pictures not of our soldiers, but of the allies ....

        Do you want the Pentagon of the USSR to praise? This is naive. He extols himself.
        And Urya-media praise themselves. And they write that the United States is to blame for the 2nd World War, and generally sucks ..
        Everyone is used to lying and you have to be prepared for this, and not uselessly shaking the air with your fists.

            I will answer this provocation: A pessimist is a well-informed optimist.

            I do not expect from USA to recognize the merits of the USSR in the defeat of the nation, therefore I am not indignant.

      hi Comrade aka Robot Bobot-Free Thinking Machine, in the context of your comment, as a "former information soldier" with the Soviet experience of propaganda and counter-propaganda, I will allow myself a big "lyrical digression" on the topic of the current, more and more obvious, escalation of the information offensive of "common people" on the current , territorially rooted, "neo-capitalist" RF (recalcitrantly "getting up from its knees" after the almost fatal "knockout" of 1991, pushing into the bloody abyss of the "saints of the 90s", attempts of sanctioned strangulation of recent years, ....!), on our common, Soviet-Union, Fatherland and our multinational Russian World, to our National Memory and Pride for our Victorious Motherland!

      In this incessant Information War, unleashed by overseas and European "common people" against the USSR - Soviet Russia (but continued against the "neo-capitalist" RF, the current heir to our common Soviet Union), against us - Russians and our compatriots of all nationalities, so that we all to survive and win in it, it is necessary to act with the same aggressive methods (you, our Thinking Comrade, I see, quite rightly smell the "trend" and use the appropriate "painful technique" -alager com alager! yes ) and defend offensively! angry
      That is, you should continuously form your OWN information space inside the country and spread it on a grand scale - broadcast it outside, operating with the most simple and generally understandable images, concentrating in an obstinate "swagger" on the most "painful points" so that the "meanings" projected by us even reached “those” ordinary people, “who are in an armored train,” and forced our enemy to writhe with frustration and anger on their “working sofas” in the ZCIPSO and local liberalist “cells” of any subversive “funds”!
      wink

      In the Russian media, foreign information, before being presented to the mass internal reader-viewer-listener, should be prepared-previously “chewed and neutralized” in a way favorable to our Fatherland, and not with a claim to “objective presentation of material”, obediently publish everything in a row vide ", they say, the readers-viewers themselves understand how you want what our committed enemies have already" prepared "for us in their" information kitchens "!
      In the same quasi "democratic (in fact - totalitarian, with universal surveillance and total control over citizens in the style of Big Brother !!!)" USA, with their supposedly "freedom of speech", the authorities do not at all disdain the "urgent recommendations" of the media what should be shown and what should be printed, and with those journalists and newspaper publishers (with themselves, their business, their families, ..) who dare to "disobey the good advice of the American authorities" very soon, without fail (so to speak, a lesson to others!), something bad "happens" ...! request

      Radio station in Gleijvice - this German city (like a large part of the German territory, in 1945 conquered with considerable blood and life of our fathers and grandfathers - and the official 600 thousand Red Army soldiers who died for the liberation of Poland - this is only for the liberation of the then Polish territory, and not the territory of East Prussia, post-war donated from the generosity of Comrade Stalin, the same ungrateful Poland, since the late 1980s and until now mired in vile anti-Sovietism and unbridled anti-Russianism - an information war against our common Fatherland - the USSR and its large and small, post-Soviet "splinters"!) is the Polish name for Gliwice.
      Much more "interesting" in terms of examples of the Polish genocide of the German and Jewish population of Poland, the landmark mass "actions" of the Polish murderers in Bromberg and Schulitz on September 3, 1939 (the Poles' bloody massacre of their fellow citizens-Polish Germans), in Jedwabne on July 10, 1941 (the bloody massacre Poles over Jewish fellow citizens), ...

    Among the dead there were about 6 million Jews who were killed by Nazi Germany.

    - Direct accusation against the USSR is being caught.

    I - do not catch. It is written specifically by whom.
    In the same article, in the original article, Truman's words about victory:

    Our joy is overshadowed and suppressed by the consciousness of the terrible price we paid to rid the world of Hitler and his evil group. Let us not forget, my fellow citizens, the grief and heartache that today live in our homes and in the homes of many of our neighbors, whose most precious possession was sacrificed in order to redeem our freedom.

    Here, in honor of the memory of the dead, in honor of the grief of the survivors, the celebration takes place without fanfare, music / dance / parades and demonstrations - they grieve quietly, in the family, without the pretense of an “immortal regiment”.
    Well, that's how anyone likes it. What if a neighbor doesn’t see me honoring the memory of my dead - I should show ...

      It is understandable why nothing is celebrated with fanfare - after all, the set goals were not achieved!
      And the goals were similar (that's a coincidence !!!) to those that preceded 1914. Namely:
      1. The destruction of the world order, built on the basis of the institutes of EMPIRE, where ALL the monarchs were, to one degree or another, relatives and there was the POSSIBILITY to negotiate without major wars. The very beginning of 1MB looks pretty wild. The MYSTERIOUS murder of one monarch draws the surrounding monarchies into the world meat grinder. To whom was it profitable? Look at WHO who benefited from the global carnage. Almost all the monarchies of OLD Europe were destroyed for the sake of TOY, which remained the ONLY influential ... Well, to those who heated their dirty hands on the mountain and misfortunes (yes, this is a stone in whose garden!) BUT !!! This was not enough for a long time - the money earned was spent SO WITHOUT that they were barely enough for 15 years!
      And what to do ???????????????? Like what? But everything is just very - according to the old proven method! Which one? Yes, everything is as old as the world - IN OYNA !!!!!!!!!!!!! Another world carnage, from which who came out to win? GUESS ONCE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      hi Our American friend Cmonman, in his sly key, selectively (but not at all intentionally doing so ??? wink) taking phrases out of context, so no, very convex, vile "subconsciousness" in the subconscious "did not catch" or "our sincere good friend" is engaged insincere ??! winked

      And if you read the quote in this article in its entirety:

      The conflict in 1939 began with Germany and the Soviet Union invading Poland. Among the dead there were about 6 million Jews who were killed by Nazi Germany. About 250 thousand American troops were also killed during the fighting at the European theater of operations ...
      - a direct charge against the USSR is being caught

      That is vile NLPishnaya "bookmark", in a simple way - "one-two-three", quite intelligibly "hammering" immediately into the subconscious (that is, bypassing the critical perception of the individual!) Of the majority (in fact, confirmed even by the "best representatives of the American nation" - Obama and Trump, a mass of American citizens "fixated on the material" and by no means suffering from sufficient knowledge of history and geography, from childhood accustomed to the stereotypical stereotype of Washington propaganda that "Soviet Russia-the evil empire "!) of American readers the associative connection of the murder of about 250 thousand American servicemen by the Soviet Union!

      Since the first sentence of this phrase by the Fashington Goebbelsuchs set the "order of thought" in listing the perpetrators of all troubles: N ° 1) Germany and N ° 2) Soviet Union ?!
      The second sentence of the phrase, the conceptual "cliché" about the Holocaust, which is well known and constantly circulated in the "universal" media, "the main fault of the aggressor N ° 1 was named" - "about 6 million Jews were killed by Nazi Germany" ?!
      The third sentence, "on the count of three", by the same "English-language order" of keywords is "hammered" into the subconscious "semantic connection" with "the main fault of the aggressor No. 2" - "About 250 thousand American servicemen were also killed during the hostilities in the European theater of operations ...."?!

      I understand, Cmonman, that you and earlier, in the old years, as a former Soviet citizen-emigrant, who gave such a loyal oath of allegiance when obtaining American citizenship (in Belarus, in the "Chernobyl zone", there were Jewish neighbors, after 91- year, too, with their adult children and young grandchildren, who emigrated to the United States, but then the children came to their hometown several times to get medical treatment and insert their teeth, sell their American goods, buy local linen products and simple locksmith tools such as pliers - so they are true "American patriots" got up to the fact that they were blaming their Soviet homeland with might and main, just as they criticized their abandoned Lukashenka's Belarus and our life, but haughtily got angry when we invited them as neighbors, fed and watered them, and, asking about life, in fact, they expressed at least some critical remarks about the American order and the wars unleashed by the Americans - these American "neophytes" showed themselves "holy her "Americans born and raised there!" request ) it was necessary to demonstrate hypertrophied pro-American patriotism, and even now (in the context of the tightening of the anti-Soviet-anti-Russian campaign) and even more so all of you there, former Soviet ones, are "under the hood" and, as it were, are obliged to work out the "high trust" ... so that, to your latently anti-Russian-Russophobic, intrigues, "podkovyrchikam" I personally do not take any offense and always try to meet you halfway - "please your narcissism", as far as possible. repeat

        Our American friend Cmonman, in his crafty manner, selectively (but not doing it on purpose ??? pulling phrases out of context, so no, very convex, mean "liner" in the subconscious "did not catch" or "our sincere good friend" engaged insincere?

        You are right - I took the phrase out of the context quotation, because I agree with the quote - the war was unleashed by the signing of an agreement between the USSR and Germany.
        And the USSR is not to blame for the deaths of 6 million Jews, I do not blame the USSR for this.
        The fact that now Russian propaganda is trying to change history is a sad (and dangerous) fact. The opinions of historians / scholars regarding the reason for the beginning of WW2 have become different, thanks to the “new reading” of these events by Putin (suffering from nostalgia for the USSR).
        Before him, it was believed that the pact between Germany and the USSR provoked 2MB. And many in Russia and in the world agreed with this. But the godfather came and told the truth ...

          Garik, many in the USA they don’t know the story. Therefore, in the USA there view and with that many agree - This is the United States defeated the Nazis. I know that there are many different opinions.

          Do not opinions, you write the official point of view of the USA. So who started the Great Patriotic War?

          hi Mr. Cmonman, by a pact with Germany, the USSR at the very last moment (when the collapse of the interwar system of European security had already become quite obvious!), Just by a miracle, in the summer of 1939 he jumped out from under the hyperaggressive skating rink of the Hitlerite military, dispersed and infuriated by the Berlin pact of 1934 with Poland and the Munich pact 1938 (pay attention to the year of signing!) France and the World Bank (and there the United States, and every little thing their interest in the commercialization of the "anti-Bolshevik trend" did not miss!), The Anschluss of Austria and the German-Polish joint seizure and partition of Czechoslovakia (for all the same The Munich Pact, which gave the "green light" to the wolf cub Adolphus raised and fed by the Anglo-Saxons and his pack of Nazi "common Europeans")!

          With the actual start of the Second World War in Europe from the March 1938 invasion of the Nazis in Austria and October 1 in Czechoslovakia, and even earlier in Asia - July 7, 1937, from the incident on the Lugou Bridge, the date of the beginning of WWII allegedly September 1, 1939, was not disputed The Soviet Union, since it would have to "lead by the ear, but into the sun" the connivors of Hitler's "Drang nach Osten", but England (and her dominions!) Became our ally in the anti-Hitler coalition!
          For the same reasons of political expediency, with all its might allied with Hitler Germany and defeated along with it, France was declared the victorious country and supposedly also a member of the anti-Hitler coalition, with corresponding preferences ...
          In principle, such a date for all the main participants - the USSR, the World Bank, the USA and France, on the terms of the existing Yalta and Potsdam agreements, was arranged, since in the first post-war years, "with fresh memory", when most of the Earth's survivors knew with their own eyes "who there is hu ", and to the unprecedented world authority of our Land of Soviets, the current anti-Soviet" rewriting of history "was inconceivable!
          But in light of the incessant propaganda attacks on our common country - the Soviet Union and the current Russian Federation, "attribution of guilt" for the alleged "beginning of WWII", I welcome the opening of archives and the digitization of documents stored there of that time, ours and captured (Hitler's "common European" invaders)!
          I think that in light of the anti-Soviet (anti-Russian) biased "stirring up the past" initiated by "common people", it will be possible to examine in more detail the role of the main capitalist countries of that time in their "games with Hitler" and in inciting Hitler's military clique against the USSR, which brought innumerable sacrifices and woe to all of us!
          Including the real role of Czechoslovakia and Poland, who fought against the USSR on the side of Hitler, as well as the role of the United States, which helped us with one hand, and Hitler and his "common Europeans" with the other, who were fighting against us ...

          To you Mr. Cmonman (I understand that, perhaps, some Alzheimer is also pestering cause-effect relationships in the brain ??!), I would remember ("according to the Hamburg score" - not "juggling"), who arranged the "new reading" of these events - after all, your Fashington "gods" started "in a new way" and "read" and "rewrite", and So, how are you now, in a small way - "pogazhivat" ?! yes
          Don't be angry, Mr. Cmonman, I just don't like Nazi henchmen, it doesn't matter if they are Hitler, Bandera, or Fashington ... I feel this especially sharply after yesterday's search - reading the archival documents of that war and the leaflets of losses with a long list of practically in a row , the names of my close and distant relatives, my fellow countrymen, killed by Hitler's "common Europeans", when I present them unkilled and gave birth to dozens of brothers and sisters to me!
