The evidence is there, the courts are functioning, all that is needed is a warrant and an officer, and an adequate level of global support.

"Joining the dots" is often a useful tool of thinking.
Crime too, is often detected by joining together various pieces of evidence and information.
So, in the interest of anyone who passes through this portal, and still believes that the Anglo-centric world is one of fairy tales and happy endings...Wake up.
Those who financed and directed the second world war were absent from the war crimes tribunals that followed, it was most certainly the "Victors` justice."
Europe lost over 30 million people, bombed and burned, starved, crippled and beset with trepidation. Cities and infrastructure lay devastated and broken.
To the East were the Russians, whilst conveniently scattered in the West were Europe`s new found allies, the Americans.
Ideology and rhetoric from both sides seemed ready to start another war, with nuclear weapons on the battlefield, we lived under a shadow of instant cremation.
So who dunnit, why, and how?
Who were the leaders who took us to the brink of self-destruction? Was it an inherent racism within our people and their politicians, or was it, as most might agree, the pressure from the arms manufacturers and their cohorts in the corporate world.
As shown, Standard oil and the Rockerfellers were very much in support of Hitler and his attempt to invade Russia.... We should never forget that there were others who gave support to the Fascists.
Henry Ford, who had no qualms about using slave workers.
General Motors, who supplied troop carriers...
General Electric, kept the power running.
ITT developed a formidable communication system. Land, sea and air, as well as producing fuses for bombs and rockets,, it also owned part of Focke-Wolfe, whose aircraft bombed the cities of Britain.
IBM, organised the railway timetables, and the listing of European Jews.
Wall St., too many names to mention., the Bush/Harriman connection is well recorded, however, even more audacious was the support of so many well known financial entities, including Rockefellers` financial arm, the Chase(Manhattan) bank.
Officially, all the guilty stood trial at Nuremburg, sadly, they were not the sole driving force of this prolonged and cruel fascist war, merely the footsoldiers.
Thanks to all those who wrote the original reports cited in the "links", the picture comes into frame.

When I arrived on this planet,(`52) the second world war had not long concluded.
It was however, in Europe, still the subject of debate, and the focus of many films and books, most of which sought to describe the events as being something that the dastardly Nazis had dreamed up, planned, financed and entered into completely without any other outside help..
We were led to think that all alone, from within his own fiendish brain, Adolf Hitler had come up with a plan that entailed rounding up all the Gipsies and Jews,, plus the communists,the disabled and the mentally ill, then forcing them to produce arms and munitions whilst they looted the art treasures of Europe. Which is far from the truth, as we have come to see.
My late father was just 18 years old at the outbreak of hostilities, a trainee clerk at an East London Jewish foodstuffs importer, and was called to defend "The Capital", along with thousands more unwitting "patriots" perched on top of an office block in Central London, with an "Ack Ack" gun, instructed to shoot at the aeroplanes that bombed London for months on end.
In `44, he was sent to the battle across Germany, (via Normandy), which is when he began to realise that maybe, just maybe, all was not as portrayed by the media of that era.
He never really got over it,the poor man, bless him. Depression, Arthritis, bouts of anger, weeks and weeks of silent bed-ridden suffering.
He strongly argued against any form of warfare, which was a brave thing to do back in those times, allthough he was Welsh, and Welsh -speaking, he also spoke a small amount of German, somehow perhaps, that tempered his view of the event.
Occasionally, we would talk about the war, and I came to believe that he had realised that there were "other things" that were behind the hostilities, particularly the aftermath of the war, when the Soviets took over much of Eastern Europe, their socialist empire being the counter to the capitalist advances of the West. In one word...Oil.
So when I first read the explanations given below, a multitude of "little facts" began to connect themselves.... How the Germans obtained finance and fuel, why they attacked the Russians (The main objective), and above all, why America came into the battle.
The part played by the Rockerfeller family should be examined, and if necessary brought further into public examination.
I`m most grateful to a German website that has posted the following non-Hollywood appraisal of some of the factors that drove millions of ordinary Europeans to war, and for so many, many unfortunates, untold suffering and their death.
Thanks to Gaby Weber...
The Russian Revolution installed a new global order. Until 1917, the Europeans were in command of the world. Then the US corporates wanted to get in the global business, above all, John D. Rockefeller who founded Standard Oil in 1870. In 1879 he merged the Vacuum Company and many other firms until 1911, when the Trust was desolved and broken into many smaller companies. But the Rockefeller family
maintained power in the oil business.
At that time, petroleum was produced in two places, in Texas and in Baku, in the Caucasus. The Russian oilfields were owned by the Nobel and Rothschild families who lost their assets with October Revolution. “In summer 1918, Mr. Nobel flew from the Soviets and begged the German emperor Wilhelm to help him to conquer his assets back”, says the historian Dietrich Eichholtz. But thinking about “conquer” wasn’t possible with an unarmed German Republic.
The interest of the Rockefeller family were identical with the interest of Deutsche Bank. And after WW1, their shares of the „Turkish Petroleum Company“ were transferred as „enemy property“ to France. For many years, the Deutsche Bank tried to litigate against this expropriation, but finally they realized that there wouldn’t be any chance on the legal front. There is strong evidence to suggest that approximately in 1927, Deutsche Bank and Standard Oil made a secret pact aimed at bringing Hitler to power in order to conquer the Oil of Baku. Standard Oil promised to supply the fuel.
In 1927, Standard Oil and IG Farben founded the company „Standard IG Farben“; president was the oil dealer William Farish from Texas. Standard passed to IG Farben the patents about the coal hydrogenation processes and the Germans gave them the patents how to manufacture synthetic rubber...

The video may not be there for long, as war is the worst censor of all.
No matter how much spin is laid upon us by the media, the fact remains that Israel is dropping bombs on women and children,without justification. They have become the worst of human forms, that of the tyrant.

Here is an open letter, written by a former world leader, to every american perhaps, but especially directed at the incoming leader of the United States, Mr. B. Obama.
I`d certainly agree with most, if not all of it.
January 1, 2009
Dear Mr. President,
I did not vote for you in the Presidential Election because I am Malaysian.
But I consider myself one of your constituents because what you do or say will affect me and my country as well.
I welcome your promise for change. Certainly your country, the United States of America needs a lot of changes.
That is because America and Americans have become the most hated people in the world. Even Europeans dislike your arrogance. Yet you were once admired and liked because you freed a lot of countries from conquest and subjugation.
It is the custom on New Year's day for people to make resolutions. You must have listed your good resolutions already. But may I politely suggest that you also resolve to do the following in pursuit of Change.
1) Stop killing people. The United States is too fond of killing people in order to achieve its objectives. You call it war, but today's wars are not about professional soldiers fighting and killing each other. It is about killing people, ordinary innocent people by the hundreds of thousands. Whole countries will be devastated.
War is primitive, the cavemen's way of dealing with a problem. Stop your arms build up and your planning for future wars.
2) Stop indiscriminate support of Israeli killers with your money and your weapons. The planes and the bombs killing the people of Gaza are from you.
3) Stop applying sanctions against countries which cannot do the same against you.
In Iraq your sanctions killed 500,000 children through depriving them of medicine and food. Others were born deformed.
What have you achieved with this cruelty? Nothing except the hatred of the victims and right-thinking people.
4) Stop your scientists and researchers from inventing new and more diabolical weapons to kill more people more efficiently.
5) Stop your arms manufacturers from producing them. Stop your sales of arms to the world. It is blood money that you earn. It is un-Christian.
6) Stop trying to democratize all the countries of the world. Democracy may work for the United States but it does not always work for other countries.
Don't kill people because they are not democratic. Your crusade to democratize countries has killed more people than the authoritarian Governments which you overthrew. And you have not succeeded anyway.
7) Stop the casinos which you call financial institutions. Stop hedge funds, derivatives and currency trading. Stop banks from lending non-existent money by the billions.
Regulate and supervise your banks. Jail the miscreants who made profits from abusing the system.
8) Sign the Kyoto Protocol and other international agreements.
9) Show respect for the United Nations.
I have many other resolutions for change which I think you should consider and undertake.
But I think you have enough on your plate for this 2009th year of the Christian Era.
If you can do only a few of what I suggest, you will be remembered by the world as a great leader. Then the United States will again be the most admired nation. Your embassies will be able to take down the high fences and razor-wire coils that surround them.
May I wish you a Happy New Year and a great Presidency.
Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad
(Former Prime Minister of Malaysia)
