A survivor recalls the horror he witnessed in the German city

The Murderous Allied Firestorms against German Civilians

The WWII Dresden Holocaust 'A Single Column Of Flame'

September 1, 1939

Following several German-staged incidents including the Gleiwitz incident, a part of Operation Himmler, the Luftwaffe attacks the Polish town of Wielun, destroying 75% of the city and killing close to 1,200 people, most of them civilians as a prelude to ground invasion.

German bombing campaigns are limited to supporting advance of German ground forces.

May 1940 Winston Churchill becomes Prime Minister.

The British bombers are designed to carpet bomb cities.

The "Teutonic mind" never considered such a policy.

Bombing of Civilians in World War II

Much like Hiroshima Dresden had no military value as a target.

For centuries, it had been a center of German cultural heritage - a heritage that had everything to do with positive developments in human civilization, and nothing to do with the Nazi disease that had been imposed on Germany by the Anglo-American financial elite.

Dresden was chosen for destruction as an act of terrorism, directed, not against the Nazis, per se, but the German people and as a warning to the Soviets.

The firebombing of Dresden, creating a raging inferno of destruction that slaughtered more that 100,000 human beings, was conceived and directed by a group of social psychiatrists at the Strategic Bombing Survey, affiliated with the Special Operations Command of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS).

This group was effectively overseen by the head of the British Psychological Warfare Directorate, Brig. Gen. John Rawlings Rees, the director the Tavistock Clinic in London, which, since the 1920s, had served as a center of psychological warfare operations of the British Empire.

The team at the Strategic Bombing Survey, which included a host of US-based Tavistock operatives, such as Kurt Lewin, Rensis Likert, and Margaret Mead, theorized that the terror inflicted on the German population through the "message of Dresden" would break their will to fight, leaving them fearful, frightened, and disorganized.

They projected that it would have a lasting effect on Germany, removing that nation from among the great states of Europe, making it a permanently psychologically scarred entity.

The German people, they argued, would be made to realize that "all that is German" could be wiped away, all of its culture and history, in an instant, as it were, by powers who would oppose an assertive future Germany.

"One of the main techniques for breaking morale through a 'strategy of terror' consists in exactly this tactic - keep the person hazy as to where he stands and what just he may expect.

If, in addition, frequent vacillations between severe disciplinary measures and promises of good treatment, together with the spreading of contradictory news, make the cognitive structure of this situation utterly unclear, then the individual may cease to know when a particular plan would lead toward or away from his goal.

Under these conditions, even those individuals who have definite goals and are ready to take risks will be paralyzed with severe inner conflicts in regard to what to do." - Kurt Lewin

As the pilots and their crews came to realize what they had done - the creation of a raging inferno, burning civilian targets and civilians - many returned to their bases horrified.

The firestorm was visible up to a distance of 300 kilometers.

This demonstration of military potency retained its psychological usefulness even after the end of the Yalta conference.

When the Soviets entered Dresden they were able to see firsthand what horrible destruction the Anglo-American air forces were able to cause to a city far removed from their bases in a single night.

"The bombing of Dresden had little to do with the war against Nazi Germany: it was an American British message for Joseph Stalin, a message that cost the lives of tens of thousands of people." - Jacques R. Pauwels

At the instruction of psyops, crews had not been fully briefed on the mission.

The crews were greeted by teams of psychologists who profiled their response to the terror they had unleashed.

They were told, as the crews who later dropped atomic bombs on two Japanese cities, that it would "shorten the war."

Operation Meetinghouse

March 9, 1945

334 B-29 bombers took off for Operation Meetinghouse.

Pathfinder aircraft went out first to mark the targets using napalm bombs, then the horde of B-29s flew in at an altitude of between 2,000 feet and 2,500 feet and proceeded to firebomb the city.

A great portion of the loads used 500-pound E-46 cluster bombs that would release napalm-carrying M-69 incendiary "bomblets."

The M-69s would go off in the first few seconds upon impact, and they most certainly ignited great jets of blazing napalm.

M-47 incendiaries were one other type of bombs that were greatly used too, and these weighed 100 pounds.

Jelled with gasoline, the M-47s also had white phosphorus bombs that ignited upon impact.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
