Who wrote Diary of Anne Frank?

                       THE FREEMEN
Dear Brethren,

Lies being taught;

Anne Frank was victim of Holocaust who was a brave girl and kept a diary of her ordeal during Holocaust which narrates horrors of Holocaust.
Now the truth;

Textbook History has myths that live a longer and richer life than truth. A New York Court awarded $50,000 to an American novelist Meyer Levin, to be paid By Otto Frank the father of Anne Frank as an honorarium for Levin's novel "Diary of a Young Girl" also known as "Diary of Anne Frank". Mr. Otto Frank, had promised to pay to a Jewish novelist Meyer Levin not less than $50,000 because he had used the literary creation of author Levin  in toto, and represented it to his publisher and the public as his late daughter’s original work.

Otto Frank later decided on a Broadway production of the same novel but did not pay Meyer Levin for use of his novel for Broadway production whcih was against the terms of contract. hence Meyer Levin sued Otto Frank for his writings, and the New York Court Jury awarded Meyer Levin $50,000, for his 'intellectual work'.

The Jury awarded $ 50,000 dollars as compensation to be paid by Otto Frank father of Anne Frank to Jew novelist Meyer Levin who wrote Diary of Anne Frank. That award was later set aside by the trial justice, Hon. Samuel C. Coleman, on the ground that the damages had not been proved in the manner required by law as it was not based upon "legal" evidence of loss. The reason was that if Writer Meyer levin had written the said novel under his own name and sold it as it was a fiction, then it would not have sold so many copies. Because Otto Frank father of Anne frank gave this fictional novel name of his dead daughter and projected to gullible public as “real” story of Anne Frank that so many copies were sold and windfall profits were made. However in further appeal against the order of Judge Coleman, by Jewish novelist Meyer Levin matter was compromised out of court between the parties. 

Jewish writer Meyer Levin had approached the Court for his claim for damages on account of writing the “Diary of Anne Frank”, He had also won his case from the Jury, He would not have withdrawn his Appeal had he not been paid out of court by Otto Frank, to avoid media publicity. So Otto Frank did pay Jewish writer Meyer Levin $ 50,000 dollars or thereabout for writing ‘Diary of Anne Frank’.

Complete details of the case are available in case titled Meyer Levin Vs Otto Frank, File number 2241-1956 in the New York County Clerk’s office.

In 1980, Otto Frank sued two Germans, Ernst Romer and Edgar Geiss, for distributing literature denouncing the diary as a forgery. The trial produced a study by official German state forensic bureau, the Bundes Kriminal Amt [BKA] forensically examined the manuscript, which at that point in time consisted of three hardbound notebooks and 324 loose pages bound in a fourth notebook, with special forensic equipment. In the end, BKA clearly determined that none of the diary handwriting matched known examples of Anne's handwriting. The bureau determined that everything in the diary was written by the same person. The person that wrote the diaries had used a ballpoint pen throughout. Unfortunately for Herr Frank, the ballpoint pen was not available until October 1945 whereas Anne was known to have died of typhus in 1944.
The German magazine, Der Spiegel, published an account of this report stating that;-
(a) some editing postdated 1951;
(b) Experts had held that all the writing in the journal was by the same hand; and thus –
(c) the entire diary was a postwar fake.

The diary of Anne frank is written in Ball point pen. Ball point pen was invented by László Bíró, in 1938. In 1940 the Bíró brothers and a friend, Juan Jorge Meyne, moved to Argentina and on June 10 filed for its patent. It was first made available in USA on 29 October 1945 at New York's Gimbles Department store when more tha 5000 pens were entire stock of ball point pens was sold at then cost of $ 12.50 each. Children were never allowed to use Ball point pen till several years later as it destroyed their hand writing.
Millions of humans world wide were fed a fiction by Jew Otto Frank for the sake of money is nothing new. In any case it was not the fault of Anne Frank. She had not done anything wrong. She had not even written any diary.
Note by author;-
What everybody believes in, is that Jewish Writer Meyer Levin had impersonated Anne frank, the extent of impersonation is in doubt whether it was ‘X’ % or ‘Y’%. To my mind if impersonation is accepted then whether it is in part or in whole is immaterial. Even those who believe that Anne Frank wrote part of diary also believe that her father tore off part of her diary which was favorable to Nazi regime and unfavorable to her own family particularly  unfavorable to her own father Otto Frank. So whether it is a case of half truth or full lies, the diary has to be denounced as fake.

Secondly If Meyer Levin had not written the first part someone who was “paid well” might have, receipt properly taken and no cause for a court case !!!
Thirdly where is the case for profits, such instances come dime a dozen in:-
a)     All 70 + Countries attacked and enslaved for world domination British  where every household suffered similar fate in the hands of their British masters.
b)     Treatment of slaves in America or treatment of US native inhabitants by European immigrants or Jews who are ruling US today.
c)     Treatment of slaves by Europeans. The bible mentions that the Jews went into slavery. Deuteronomy 28:68 and they had yokes of iron put around their necks. Deuteronomy 28:48
d)     Every place which has suffered slavery has worst diaries, except that in those countries slaves do not own the media.

Lastly in some countries denial of holocaust / or Anne frank diary is illegal. In some cities particularly in Amsterdam such diaries have been used to generate massive tourism and made a source of revenue. Such cities / countries or their “courts of law” will jealously defend the diary and will prosecute to the extent of bankruptcy anyone and everyone who publicly denies the diary as a fraud. However such prosecution has nothing to do with upholding the truth but more to protect the revenue illegally earned over last fifty five years. A case in hand is that of David Irwing. Another is Julian Assange, who has been persecuted for publishing truth in Wikileaks. Nobody has challenged the truth in Wikileaks yet Julian Assange has been persecuted to the extent of bankruptcy.  

Freedom can mean freedom of expression or freedom to sway the masses by the money power of political donations, or having your own chosen one as a puppet President 'who' then decides on judges most of whom dance to moneyers behind their appointments.

The Knights Templars

Lies being taught;
Knight Templar’s were ‘Christian’ warrior, who who fought for protection of holy land.

Now the truth;
King Solomon and rebuilding of 3rd temple is central to Freemasonry.
The Knights Templars  : According to Guillaume de Tyre the Order of the Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon was founded in 1118.  Its founder is said to be one Hugues de Payen, a noble man from Champagne and vassal of the count of Champagne.  One day Hugues, unsolicited, presented himself with eight comrades at the palace of Baudouin I, king of Jerusalem, whose elder brother, Godfroi de Bouillori, had captured the Holy City nineteen years earlier.  Boudouin seems to have received then most cordially, as did the patriarch of Jerusalem the religious leader of the new kingdom and special emissary of the Pope. The number nine is based on historical set of nine heroes called “nine worthies”. The Nine Worthies are nine historical, scriptural, mythological or semi-legendary personages who were established in the middle ages as a set of heroes personifying the ideals of chivalry.
The declared objective of the Templar's, Guillaume de Tyre continues, was, “as far as their strength permitted, they should protect pilgrims on the holy land’s highways and byways”  So worthy was this objective apparently that the king King Baldwin provided them with lodging in the al-Aqsa mosque, which was, according to the Crusaders, built on the location of the former Temple of Solomon and from this the fledgling order derived its name.

For nine years, Guillaume de Tyre tells us, the nine knights admitted no new candidates to their order.  They were still supposed to be living in poverty such poverty that official seals show two knights riding a single horse, implying not only a (Masonic) brotherhood, but also a penury that precluded separate mounts.  This style of seal is often regarded as the most famous and distinctive of Templar devices, descending from the first days of the order.  Although their ostensible objective was Christian but they desire to be lodged in the ruins of ‘Temple of Solomon’ (The first temple of Judea) led us to believe otherwise. The objective were ;-
a)     Protection of temple of Judea.
b)     To find the lost “Ark of Covenant”, whose last hiding place had been underneath the Temple of Solomon.
c)     To find the hidden secrets and mysteries of temple of Solomon the first temple of Judea. Much of the rituals of forth degree in Masonry namely chapter is based on this part of History when nine Knights dug under the temple to know the hidden mysteries of Temple Judea believed to lying therein. Under the Temple they are believed to have found scrolls (as per the rituals in freemasonry) and 'Treasure (vast deposits of Gold)'.

True as masons keep their secrets. These knights also kept their secret about “temple of Solomon” with them but used their knowledge and treasure 'Treasure (vast deposits of Gold)' gained from digging under the 1st Temple of Judea to their fame.

Within a decade the Templars fame spread to Europe. Ecclesiastical authorities spoke highly of them and extolled their “Christian” undertaking.  By 1128 or shortly thereafter, a tract lauding their virtues and qualities was issued by no less a person than Saint Bernard, abbot of Chairvaux and the age’s chief spokesman for Christendom. Was it bought?

After nine years in 1127, most of the nine knights returned to Europe and a triumphal welcome, orchestrated in large part by Saint Bernard.  In January 1128 a Church council was convened at Troyes court of the count of champagne, Hugues de Payen’s liege lord at which Bernard was again the guiding spirit. At this council the Templar's were officially recognized and incorporated as a religious military order.  Hugues de Payen was given the title of Grand Master. He and his subordinates were to be warrior monks, soldier mystics, combining the austere discipline of the cloister with a martial zeal tantamount of fanaticism a “militia of Christ” as they were called at the time.  And it was again Saint Bernard who helped to draw up, with an enthusiastic preface, a rule based on that of the Cistercian monastic order, in which Bernard himself was a dominant influence.

Genuine zeal for keeping the Holy Land in Christian hands led both secular and church authorities to make vast donations to the Templars.  Based on their new found 'Treasure (vast deposits of Gold)' they were also able to influence the church as well  as the King. In 1139, a papal bull was issued by Pope Innocent II, a former Cistercian monk at Clairvaux and protégé of Saint Bernard.  According to this bull the Templars would owe allegiance to no secular or ecclesiastical power other than the Pope himself.  In other words, they were rendered totally independent of all kings, princes, and prelates, and of all interference from both political and religious authorities.  They had become, in effect, a law unto themselves, an autonomous international empire. With their new carte blanche from the Vatican, the Knights Templar expanded at a staggering rate, both in numbers and political force, amassing vast estates in over a dozen countries. Throughout, Europe younger sons of noble families flocked to enroll in the orders ranks, and vast donations in money, goods and land were made from every quarter of Christendom. They began extending credit to bankrupt royals and charging interest in return, thereby establishing modern banking and broadening their wealth and influence still further. To this day protectors of Temple of Judean or Jews continue to be masters of Banking which they had begun during their Templar days. Gold standard began with Templars. percusars to Freemasons whose undisputed King till today is Rothschild. 

Today’s One Dollar bill Still contains the Masonic symbol of a Master Mason.

During the two decades following the Council of Troyes the order expanded with extraordinary rapidity and on an extraordinary scale. After the recognition of the Order, Hughes de Payens himself set out on a European trip, soliciting land and money from royalty and nobility.  When Hugues de Payen visited England in late 1128, he was received with “great worship” by King Henry I.   He founded the first Templar site in that country, on the site of what is now London’s Holborn Underground Station.

If Templar's were Christian, why were Templar’s site different from Churches, but they were - because Templar’s were /are Jewish. Freemasons are descendants of Templar’s.  All Masonic “rites” or “observances” are direct descent from Building of King Solomon’s temple or 1st Temple of Judea and furthered by the Templar order from the period they had dug underneath the ruins of Temple of Judea during Templar’s days.

By advent of time Jewish rituals of Templar’s became more and more apparent. By the 1300s, Pope Clement V decided that something had to be done.  Working in concert with France’s King Philippe IV, the Pope devised an ingeniously planned operation to quash the Templar's and seize their treasures.  In a military maneuver worthy of the CIA, Pope Clement issued secret sealed orders to be opened simultaneously by his soldiers all across Europe on Friday, October 13 of 1307.

At dawn on the thirteenth, the documents were unsealed and their contents revealed.  Clement’s letter claimed that god had visited him in a vision and warned him that the knights Templar were heretics guilty of devil worship, defiling the cross, and other blasphemous behavior.  Pope Clement had been asked by god to cleanse the earth by rounding up all the knights and torturing them until they confessed their crimes against God.  Clement’s Machiavellian operation came off with clockwork precision.  On that day, countless knights were capture, tortured mercilessly, and finally burned at the stake as heretics.  Echoes of the tragedy still resonated in modern culture; to this day, Friday the thirteenth is considered unlucky.

After the Templar's demise, the mystique surrounding it persisted. The final recorded act in the orders history had been the burning of the last Grand Master, Jacques de Molay, in March 1314.  As the smoke from the slow fire choked the life from his body; Jacques de Molay is said to have issued an imprecation from the flames.  According to tradition he called his persecutors Pope Clement and King Philippe to join him and account for themselves before the court of God within the year.  Within a month Pope Clement was dead, supposedly from a sudden onslaught of dysentery. By the end of the year Philippe was dead as well. Many French Freemasons, in conspiring against King Louis Philippe XVI, felt they were helping to implement Jacques de Molay’s dying curse on the French line.  When the king’s head fell beneath the guillotine, an unknown man is reported to have leaped onto the scaffold.  He dipped his hand in the monarch’s blood, flung it out over the surrounding throng and cried, “Jacques de Molay, thou are avenged!”

After having taken over USA with the the help of French King Louis XVI, they deposed him soon thereafter. Thus began the quest for New World Order (NWO) in Europe, a world free from the rule of church and Monarchy and (unsaid) to re-establish rule of Jews which rule had came to an end in 931 BC with the destruction of 1st Temple of Judea or Temple built by king Solomon.

Truth of Pearl harbor - 11 and Did FDR knew about it in advance ?

              THE FREEMEN  
Dear Brethren,

Lies being taught;

Fredrick Delano Roosevelt the WW2 President of USA was taken by surprise by Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor.

Now the truth;

Roosevelt and Churchill had already been working on a plan to get America to enter the war in Europe.

After the German ship Bismarck sank the British ship known as the Hood, Churchill suggested in April, 1941 that an American warship should find the Prinz Eugen (the Bismarck's escort ship) then draw her fire, "....thus providing the incident for which the United States would be so thankful..." i.e., bring her into the war. While Roosevelt planned for such a provocation in the Atlantic, Hitler told his naval commanders in July, 1941, to avoid confrontation with the United States while his Russian campaign was in progress.

While FDR was pushing Japan into drawing first blood, he told the American public in his famous campaign statement of 1940:

"While I am talking to you mothers and fathers, I give you one more assurance. I have said this before, and I shall say it again and again and again: Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars."

Then he said later that he wouldn't send our boys to war unless we were attacked.

Former President Herbert Hoover observed the various political manipulations, and said in August, 1941:

"The American people should insistently demand that Congress put a stop to step-by-step projection of the United States into undeclared war..."

Evidence that FDR knew in advance about Pearl Harbor;-

On January 27, 1941, Ambassador Grew sent a telegram to the Secretary of State to report the following:
"The Peruvian minister has informed a member of my staff that he heard from many sources, including a Japanese source, that, in the event of trouble breaking out between the United States and Japan, the Japanese intended to make a surprise attack against Pearl Harbor."
(Source: U.S. Department of State Publication 1983, Peace and War: United States Foreign Policy, 1931-1941, Washington, D.C.: U.S., Government Printing Office, 1943, pp. 617-618)

In August, 1941, Congressman Martin Dies, Chairman of the House Committee on Un-American Activities, collected evidence that the Japanese were planning to attack Pearl Harbor. The Committee was in possession of a strategic map, prepared by the Japanese Imperial Military Intelligence Department that clearly indicated their plans to attack Pearl Harbor. Dies was told not to go public with his information.

An Army Intelligence officer in the Far East discovered the plan for the Pearl Harbor attack, and prior to the attack, sent three separate messages to Washington detailing the plan. Soviet agent Richard Sorge told the Russian Government in October, 1941 that "the Japanese intend to attack Pearl Harbor in the next 60 days," and received a response from his superiors that the information had been passed onto President Roosevelt. Dusko Popov, a British double agent, received information from Germany about Japan's plans, and passed the information onto Washington. It was never acted on.

As early as 1944, Presidential candidate and New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey said that Roosevelt knew about the attack on Pearl Harbor before it happened. In documents declassified by the National Security Agency in 1981, [it was revealed that] America had broken the Blue (diplomatic) and Purple (naval) secret codes of the Japanese, knew all the details of the attack, and the whereabouts of the Japanese fleet. From September, 1941, until the attack itself, all Japanese communications had been intercepted and decoded by American intelligence, and indicated an impending attack on Pearl Harbor.

One transmission, from a fake weather report broadcast on a Japanese short-wave station contained the words "higashi no kaze ame" which means "east wind, rain" which the Americans already knew was the Japanese code for war with the United States. Top military officials denied that the "winds" message existed and attempted to destroy all traces of its receipt.

Late in November, 1941 the following order was sent out to all U.S. military commanders: "The United States desires that Japan commit the first overt act." According to Secretary of War Stimson, this order came directly from Roosevelt. According to Stimson's diary, 9 people in the war cabinet, all the military people, knew about FDR's plan of provocation.

The State Department knew on November 20th [1941] that a naval force which included four of the largest Japanese aircraft carriers was heading towards Hawaii, and this information was passed on to Pearl Harbor on November 27th. However, the American base in Hawaii was not given this information. Three days before the attack, Australian Intelligence spotted the Japanese fleet heading for Hawaii. They sent a warning to Washington, but it was dismissed by Roosevelt who said it was a politically motivated rumor circulated by the Republicans.

On December 1, 1941, the head of the Far East Division of U.S. Naval Intelligence wrote in his report to head of the Pacific Fleet: "War between the United States and Japan will begin in the nearest future." The Report never made it to the commander's desk, because it had been 'accidentally' detained by his superiors.
Early in December, Army Intelligence knew that the diplomats at the Japanese Embassy in Washington had been ordered to destroy all codes and to return to Japan. Washington also knew that Japan had ordered all of its merchant ships home, because they would be needed to transport soldiers and supplies for the war. On December 5, Col. Sadtler from U.S. Military Communications transmitted the following telegram to his superiors, based on information he had received: "War with Japan will begin immediately; exclude all possibility of a second Port Arthur." This telegram never got to its destination.

Rear Admiral Robert A. Theobold, USN retired, author of The Final Secret of Pearl Harbor, and Col. Curtis B. Dall, the son-in-law of FDR, in an interview with Anthony Hilder for his book Warlords of Washington admitted that they [FDR and his staff] knew about the Pearl Harbor attack before it occurred. Theobold, the Commander of all the destroyers at Pearl Harbor, said in his book that Roosevelt knew about the attack 21 hours before it happened. Theobold wrote:
"An incontestable fact in the true history of Pearl Harbor is the repeated withholding from Admiral Kimmel and General Walter C. Short [the Navy and Army commanders at Pearl Harbor] of supremely important military information ... There's never been a case in history when a commander was not informed that his country will be at war within a few hours and that his forces will most likely become the first object of attack at sunrise."

Theobold also cited the testimony of Admiral Harold Stark (head of Navy Headquarters in Washington) who did not reveal Japan's de facto declaration of war to Admiral Kimmel, and said he was acting on orders from a "higher authority" referring to Roosevelt... General Marshall merely passed on the Roosevelt directive of December 4th, which said that no communications could be sent to Pearl Harbor, unless it was cleared by Marshall.

On November 26, 1941, Roosevelt sent an ultimatum insisting that the Japanese withdraw all their troops [from China]. He refused any negotiations with Prince Kenoye, the Japanese Prime Minister, even though Joseph Grew , the Ambassador to Japan, said that such a meeting would prevent war with the Japanese. The Japanese response from Tokyo to the Japanese embassy, encrypted in the "Purple" code, was intercepted by the Navy, decoded, and given to Roosevelt on the evening of December 6th. The thirteen-point communiqué revealed, that because of the intense pressure of the economic sanctions, diplomatic relations with the United States were being terminated at 1:00 PM Eastern time on Sunday, December 7th. For all intents and purposes, this was a declaration of war and upon reading it Roosevelt said: "This means war." It was not passed onto the Pearl Harbor command, and it was at that time that the attack began.

The Administration discovered that in 1941 a Japanese naval officer was working at the Japanese consulate in Honolulu under an assumed name. They followed him, and began to intercept his messages to Japan, which enabled the Japanese to develop a timetable for the attack, and even bomb plots. They never stopped him, and it enabled the Japanese to prepare themselves for an attack against us.

Fleet Admiral William F. Halsey wrote:
"Our intelligence data spoke of a likely attack by Japan on the Philippines or the Dutch East Indies. Although Pearl Harbor wasn't excluded from discussion, everything relayed to us pointed to other objects of attack. If we had known that the Japanese were continually collecting detailed information about the exact location and movements of our warships in Pearl Harbor (which is made clear by intercepted reports), we naturally would have concentrated our efforts on preparations to repel an attack on Pearl Harbor."

Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson, after meeting with the Roosevelt administration on November 25, 1941, wrote in his diary:
"The discussion was about how we should maneuver to force the Japanese to fire the first shot, while not exposing ourselves to too great a danger; this will be a difficult task."

Admiral Husband E. Kimmel wrote in his memoirs:
"It was part of Roosevelt's plan that no warning be sent to the Hawaiian Islands. Our leaders in Washington, who deliberately didn't inform our forces in Pearl Harbor, cannot be justified in any way. The Pearl Harbor Command wasn't informed at all about ... the American note of November 26, 1941, delivered to the Japanese ambassador, which practically excluded further negotiations and made war in the Pacific inevitable. The Army and Navy Command in the Hawaiian Islands received not even a hint about intercepted and deciphered Japanese telegrams which were forwarded to concerned parties in Washington on the 6th and 7th of December, 1941."

The Pacific fleet had consisted of nine battleships, three aircraft carriers, and some smaller ships. The aircraft carriers and the smaller, more mobile ships were moved prior to the attack because Roosevelt knew they would be needed for a war at sea. On November 28th Fleet Admiral William F. Halsey (under Kimmel's command) sailed to Wake Island with the carrier Enterprise, three heavy destroyers and nine small destroyers; and on December 5th, the Lexington, three heavy cruisers and five destroyers were sent to Midway, and the Saratoga went to the Pacific Coast. The battleships that remained at Pearl Harbor were considered dispensable, because they had been produced during and prior to World War I and were viewed as old and obsolete. They were to be sacrificed [along with the men --ed].

The Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor On December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbor, instead of attacking Russia, as they originally intended to do. The next day, Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan:
"We don't like it -- and we didn't want to get in it -- but we are in it and we're going to fight it with everything we've got."

The attack on Pearl Harbor resulted in the deaths of 2,341 American soldiers and 2,233 more who were injured or missing. The obsolete or dispensable eight battleships, only two destroyers, only two squadron minesweepers, were sunk or damaged. All of this just to create an anti-Japanese sentiment in the country and justify American action against Japan.

General George C. Marshall (Supreme Commander of the U.S. Army), and Admiral Harold R. Stark (Supreme Commander of the U.S. Navy) in Washington, testified that the message about the attack was not forwarded to Adm. Kimmel and Gen. Short because the Hawaiian base had received so many intercepted Japanese messages that another one would have confused them. In truth, Marshall sat on the information for 15 hours because he didn't want anything to interfere with the attack. The message was [finally] sent after the attack started. Internal Army and Navy inquiries in 1944 found Kimmel and Short derelict of duty, but the truth was not revealed to the public.

Eleven days after the attack, the Roberts Commission, headed by Supreme Court Justice Owen Roberts, made scapegoats of Adm. Kimmel and Gen. Short who were denied open hearings, publicly ruined, and forced to retire. Short died in 1949, and Kimmel died in 1968.

The most incredible of the eight investigations was a joint House-Senate investigation that echoed the Roberts Commission. Both Marshall and Stark testified that they couldn't remember where they were the night the declaration of war had come in. A close friend of Frank Knox, Secretary of the Navy, later said that Knox, Stark, and Marshall spent most of that night with Roosevelt in the White House waiting for the bombing to begin so they could enter the war. According to historian John Toland, Marshall told his top officers: "Gentlemen, this goes to the grave with us."

In 1995, a Department of Defense study concluded that "Army and Navy officials in Washington were privy to intercepted Japanese diplomatic communications ... which provided crucial confirmation of the imminence of war."
From November 17th to 25th, the U.S. Navy intercepted 83 messages that Yamamoto sent to his carriers.

This Pearl Harbor scenario was a repeat of the American battleship "Maine" which was [reportedly] sunk by a Spanish mine in the port of Havana, Cuba in 1898. The rallying cry of "Remember the Maine" was used to stir up anti-Spanish hysteria in America to justify us declaring war on Spain. Years later, when the ship was examined, it was established that the hull had been blown out by an explosion from inside the ship.

The pearl Harbor scenario was also a repeat of sinking of American ship “Lusitania’ which was sunk eight miles off the Irish coast by a U-boat on May 7, 1915. The sinking enraged American public opinion where 128 victims came from. Robert Lansing, the U.S. secretary of state, later wrote that the sinking gave him the 'conviction we would ultimately become the ally of Britain'.

The war turned the United States into a nation that consumed more than it produced, creating unemployment and financial instability.

On the European front, the War enabled the Russians to gain control of Eastern Europe, promoted Communism, paved the way for the creation of the nation of Israel.

At a cost of about $400 billion, the War raised US National Debt to $220 billion, and pushed US deeper into the clutches of the international bankers. Because of all the intricate angles involved in this conflict, it would not be an understatement to say that World War II was probably the most costly event in American history. US may have temporarily won (with aid of nuclear weapons or WMDs), but in the long run, it lost.
