There is an interesting school of historical revisionism taking place in Germany, and I am not talking about the goofball Neo-Nazi holocaust revisionist nonsense either. The revisionism has encompassed, as I detail in some of my books about Nazi secret weapons and survival plans, been led by such researchers as Friedrich George, Harald Faeth, Dr. Rainer Karlsch, and my colleague, Igor Witkowski, and has encompassed a re-examination of the Allied Legend concerning the actual state of Nazi atom bomb research, to deeper probings into the whole story of alternative technologies such as those represented by the Bell, to an examination of little-known installations and the whole complex of secret weapons research.

But there is another aspect of this story that researchers are investigating, and that is the whole story of the City of London's manipulations of the Reich with the intentions to destroy it. Now a German military officer has published a book in that country, based in part on a document that the British government is not - at least thus far - denying(I am indebted to Vince Terranova for sharing this information with me):

England Instigated World War Two

Certainly the Nazi regime is not guiltless in the origins of World War Two, but this report is correct: there always was since the German Empire was proclaimed in 1871 at the conclusion of the Franco-Prussian war, the realization in the elite political and financial circles of London, that the German Reich constituted the greatest potential threat to the British Empire, and there was a party in England that did want its destruction at all costs, just as there was a party that hoped to appease the Nazi regime in an effort to avert war.

The implications here are worthy of note. When one places this book within the wider context of the research of Anthony Sutton, or even of Carroll Quigley, a picture emerges of Anglo-American corporate elites installing three varieties of socialist governments: Communism, National Socialism, and Roosevelt's New Deal socialism.  According to this school of analysis, the hope was to play Germany off against Russia (after, of course, the Communists proved less-than-compliant servants of their corporate masters). The "plan" went awry, of course, and Russia ended up with an empire deeply embedded into central Europe.

And that's the real point here. The elites continue to play the old European game of power politics, and that game has always included gross miscalculation. The problem is, I have that sinking feeling that as the Middle East tears itself to tatters that we are watching a similar sort of miscalculation.
