I Hate Ike:
By Michael Collins
.As far as Congress is concerned, American veterans are expendable. That’s the impression many people have. In fact, Congress has turned a blind eye to at least some veterans’ concerns: the establishment of a taxpayer-financed $120 million memorial to an American military leader guilty of mass genocide — ex-President Dwight Eisenhower.
On Oct. 12, 2012 AFP described Ike’s sordid record and the congressional push to fund an Eisenhower memorial in an unsettling expose written by John Tiffany of THE BARNES REVIEW, the historical journal published by Willis Carto. A U.S. Army Purple Heart winner — wounded in combat in the Pacific in World War II — Carto wrote one of two further articles published in AFP on July 8, 2013 describing Eisenhower’s crimes. As AFP noted:
After World War II, Eisenhower was personally responsible for the deliberate genocide of nearly 2 million German prisoners of war who starved to death or died of disease and exposure, held in some 19 different outdoor pens (large fields surrounded by barbed wire) in sub-freezing weather without food, water or sanitation — open-air, excrement-filled holes. In one instance, some 560,000 of Ike’s victims were crowded into a death trap that would be fit for holding no more than 45,000 men.
“Instead of treating these soldiers as prisoners of war, as he was bound to do under the Geneva Convention,” wrote Carto, “Eisenhower invented a new category, designating them as ‘disarmed enemy personnel.’” This, Carto commented, was the “double-talk of a pettifogging shyster lawyer” Eisenhower used to justify his crime.
In fact, Ike also murdered 2 million former Russian POWs who sought to defect to the West to escape communist tyranny. Ike was personally responsible for the order that forcibly “repatriated” the Russian dissidents who were shipped back to the Soviet Union to certain execution.
Many World War II veterans responded favorably to Carto’s article, recalling, as AFP noted, that before Franklin D. Roosevelt promoted Eisenhower in 1943 to Allied Supreme Commander in Europe (over the heads of more than 50 seasoned officers) — a move that shocked the military establishment — Ike was a paper-pushing bureaucrat with no serious military experience.
Ike’s first major test — his design for the invasion of Europe in 1944 — nearly failed. Despite massive logistical superiority of the forces under his command, thousands of Allied soldiers died needlessly on D-Day.
On July 3, 2013 Carto wrote every member of Congress — enclosing the issue of AFP with its reports on Eisenhower — urging Congress to stop the Eisenhower memorial.
“As a holder of the Purple Heart award for wounds received in combat — an experience Eisenhower never had — I believe I have a right to bring this matter to your attention,” wrote Carto.
On Oct. 21, 2013 — not having received even a single answer to his letter — Carto again wrote every member of Congress, asking that they respond to his latest letter. Carto pointed out that James Bacque had outlined Ike’s record in Other Losses.* So Eisenhower’s crimes were no secret: Bacque’s book had been widely publicized as a consequence of its controversial findings.
But as of Feb. 12, 2014 Carto had still not received a single letter from anyone in Congress regarding the memorial.
In the end, the memorial has proceeded as far as it has because, as Carto wrote in AFP, “No one has had the guts to point out that Eisenhower is literally the last person in the world who should be honored by the American people because his record clearly shows him to be a mass murderer.”
*Other Losses: An Investigation into the Mass Deaths of German Prisoners at the Hands of the French and Americans After World War II. Instead of praise, Ike should be remembered for his murder of millions of hapless German prisoners after World War II. Canadian reporter James Bacque revealed the chilling story of Ike’s mass murder of millions of disarmed, surrendered German soldiers in 1945 in his book Other Losses when no one else would. Other Losses (softcover, 324 pages, $20 plus $5 S&H in the U.S.) is available from TBR, P.O. Box 15877,Washington,D.C. 20003. Call TBR toll free at 1-877-773-9077 to charge.
