Tsar Nicholas II was never "deposed" by anyone, let alone the Bolsheviks! He gave up his throne in favor of his brother, under the pressure of few traitors, who held his family hostage. The traitors funded by the Jacob Schiff, and led by Alexander Kerensky, began an intentional rapid disintegration of the empire and its institutions, and prepared the ground for the second group of professional terrorists Lenin, Trotsky, Svredlov and Co. then kindly handed them the power in October (what is wrongly referred to as the "Bolshevik" or "October" revolution) and then Kerensky was shipped out of the country and finally arrived in the US, where he was branded a great democrat. Meanwhile, Schiff's professionals began the second phase of the operation and plunged the country into a civil war.
During the war, Lenin and Co. realized that their only chance of survival was to fight to the end and hold the power in the country, as no one was ever going to leave them alive after what they have done. With the support of Schiff's money, Chinese mercenaries, German POWs, US, UK and others' generous help, the Bolsheviks emerged the winners after turning the ex-empire into a sea of blood and theater of human atrocities, that make the Holocaust look like an ant next to an elephant!
Once the civil war was won, the original division between Lenin's gang and Trotsky's gang emerged again, and after Stalin (from Lenin's gang) won the power in 1924, Trotsky and his gang were given secondary positions in power, and they resented this until the day they died, most of them during, what is now called, the Great Purge of 1937-1938, when Stalin got rid off the remains of Trotsky's gang en masse, whom he could not fully trust, and correctly so. Most of them were the chief executors of millions of people, before, during and after the civil war in
, so in a
way they got what they deserved. Russia
Ever since 1924 Stalin pushed the preparation for the further execution of the World Revolution, which based on the lessons learnt from the last war, foresaw some serious strategy changes. Trotsky's classic "permanent revolution" strategy was dumped, after failing to bring successful results, especially during Red Army’s Polish campaign. The new strategy envisioned rebuilding the country (hence the infamous "Socialism in one state" slogan), which included the creation of the industrial ability to build and produce modern weapons in large quantities, which were to be used by the future invincible Red Army, when it would answer to the international proletariat's “shout for help,” and demolish the "awful capitalist imperialist pigs" by lightning war, only AFTER they had already been exhausted in an imperialist war between themselves!
Stalin's foreign policy pursued exactly this, and it succeeded! First, by using his international communist gangs, represented legally (and some illegally) as the Communist parties, he brought Mussolini to power in Italy, this move caused the division of the Italian Communist party, and those who did not want to follow Moscow's line split from it and formed the Socialist party. In 1933, Stalin did the same in
Germany, using the German Communist party and then
its political position as the decisive minority at the democratic
elections in ,
he allowed Hitler and his party to come to power. Stalin needed a crazy
nationalist war seeker who was going to lead Germany Germany
against the "chains of the 's
treaty" and thus start the imperialist war, Stalin and the Bolsheviks
needed in order to exhaust the imperialists first, and then LIBERATE them
(rather than INVADE them). Versailles
To make sure that Germany had the military potential to eventually wage a war of revenge (Germany was allowed only a very limited military after WWI), in 1927, Stalin invited the Germans to the Soviet Union, and gave them four Red Army bases where they could both work freely on their military innovations (such as creating the gas later used in the Holocaust camps), but also learn from the Red Army, which at the time was by far more experienced and advanced on the new modern maneuverable war, which it gained during the civil war. Based on this cooperation, the German Wehrmacht later developed its own version known as the Blitzkrieg.
After failing to spark a new European war among the imperialists, first in Spain during the Civil War there, later the crisis with Czechoslovakia, Stalin finally succeeded, by approaching Hitler and fooling him into signing the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact, which gave Hitler the so much needed and desired “OK” from the Soviet Union to achieve its strategic goals, by unifying the rest of the German people and territories then under the Polish state. In fact Stalin gave him half of
plus limitless raw material supplies so badly needed. This was
the carrot Stalin used to fool Hitler into signing the pact. What Hitler was
not aware of, was that by attacking Poland he was going to get himself into a
major war with Britain and France, for which he was not prepared for in 1939,
and examining his military program such a war was planned for the late 1940s
early 1950s! Hitler believed that Britain and France will again let him have
his, especially after realizing that he was doing this together with Stalin.
Stalin knew about the firm British and French intentions to wage a war against Germany Germany if it were to attack Poland, they had told him that during the months
long negotiations for creation of an anti-Hitler coalition that took place in also in 1939. Moscow
The pact foresaw the invasion of
Poland for 1 September, but Stalin intentionally
delayed his entry, thereby exposing the entire aggression to . As
expected, Germany Britain and France waged war against Germany, but withheld the same strategy against
Stalin, when the Red Army invaded struggling from the east only weeks
later. The Second World War had began, but only Stalin knew that at the time,
after all he worked so hard to plan and execute it. Poland
With Stalin’s help,
achieved surprising and
unexpected for them gains. Under the pressure of the British fleet, a large Germany German contingency based in was
under the treat to be encircled. Norway Germany
had no other means to help them, but to strike
in hope to divert the British fleet back south to help the French and British
troops based there. The complete fall of France France
after the German attack, was surprising to and many others. Suddenly Germany Germany had gained more territory than it could
control and manage, hence southern was never really occupied.
To the fast assuming shortsighted fools, this was a great victory, to the
careful knowledgeable observer, this was a strategic suicide for France .
As if that was not enough, the fronts quickly spread to Africa, and the
Mediterranean region, and Germany
was struggling to keep up, having to disperse further and further its meager
forces. With the Greeks helping the Brits, and the Italians stuck in Germany Albania, Hitler was forced to open yet another
front, so he invaded Yugoslavia
and then ,
which meant more forces, more dispersing. Greece
Meanwhile the great initiator, was planning the final touches of his grand invasion plan in
The recently completed and still ongoing industrialization, which was basically the building of the biggest industrial complex in the Soviet Union with the help and aid of the
US (75%) and Western countries (25%), began giving results, and the Soviet Union was now the leading producer of military
weapons in the world, not only in quantity but also in quality! That was
apparently not enough for Stalin, so he was buying weapons from everyone else
as well. Most of the time to simply compare them to the Soviet ones, but also
to further develop the ideas and create the ultimate weapon.
To keep his own people and the rest of the world calm, Stalin needed few small scale border conflicts, they would serve as the motives which would explain why so many Soviet men were suddenly mobilized in September 1939 and kept in the army longer than usual. He combined this strategic need to resolve some outstanding problems to the south with Japan, and in August 1939 the Red Army executed the perfect deep penetration operation and annihilated the Japanese at the battle of Khalkhin Gol, and resolved the years long border incidents with the Japanese, and also let to the Soviet-Japanese pact later on, which allowed Stalin a peace of mind when the German forces were advancing east in their operation Barbarossa.
As the future invasion plan for Europe was changing shape in Stalin’s office, next came
after asking impossible demands from it, and then staged a supposed Finish
artillery attack on a Red Army position, the Red Army invaded . In
impossible conditions, and against an “invincible” defense line, according to
the western specialists, the Red Army struggled four months before achieving
its initial goal. The shortsighted fools quickly mocked the Red Army, while the
smart understanding folks, drew the correct conclusion: the Red Army could
achieve the victory at any cost, under any conditions and against invincible
defense line. As a result the three Baltic states and Finland Romania all accepted the demands of , understanding
that they had no chance against the Red Army. Churchill and Hitler however, did
not draw the right conclusions, and Hitler paid a heavy price for his failure. Moscow
After Stalin’s annexation of parts of
Romania in 1940, Hitler got scared that Stalin was
getting too close to the Romanian oil fields, ’s main fuel supply. As a
result of this plus the numerous reports for the war preparations undergoing in
the Soviet Union, led Hitler order the preparation of a plan for invasion of Germany .
To camouflage his real intentions, and provoke an invasion of the Red army,
Hitler kept a great disinformation campaign concerning the future invasion of Russia . Stalin on the other hand, believed Hitler to be
a sane leader who would not risk his country in an impossible campaign which
invading the Britain Soviet Union obviously was. (to be continued)
