Lies told by the BBC about the Dresden Holocaust and the insult of the Coventry comparison

Dresden Fire Damage Map

In a news story today, the BBC makes historically false statements in its attempt to whitewash the nation's guilt for the Dresden Holocaust in February 1945, 70 years ago. It writes:

  • An estimated 25,000 people died in the British and American attack, which created a firestorm that left 33 sq km (12 sq miles) of the city in ruins.   [How can a firestorm that completely destroyed 33 sq km of a city center teeming with a million additional homeless refugees leave only 25,000 dead? A firestorm is something that is near to impossible to escape. They make no attempt to explain that. Witnesses at the time said the number was two to three hundred thousand.]

  • The city was believed by allied forces to be a vital Nazi command centre.   [Untrue. This was dreamed up later as an excuse when the unbelievable horror they had unleashed became apparent. It is absolutely clear that the British targeted civilians and civilian housing (and also had full knowledge of the extra refugees from the east fleeing the Red Army-raping-hordes) in a bid to extract an unconditional surrender from the Germans, as well as to please Stalin by killing the refugees for him.
  • [Dresden] was used by German forces to defend the country against Soviet forces approaching from the east.  [Another lie. Whatever inconsequential military base was located outside the city, it was left untouched by the bombers, whose mission was only to destroy civilians in a carefully orchestrated series of attacks, designed to create a firestorm.]

Lord Mayor of Coventry, go home! And the vicar too!

The Lord Mayor of Coventry is among the thousands of people marking the 70th anniversary of the Dresden bombings today.


Coun Hazel Noonan is in Germany to represent Coventry, which became officially twinned with Dresden in 1959, as the two cities share the strong bond of having suffered similar fates during the Second World War.  Ha! Hardly. The only similarity is that Coventry lost its famous cathedral, this part of which the English have left un-rebuilt in order to draw attention to their "sufferings" in hopes of defusing the far worse damage they did to others.

She is joined in Dresden by Coventry vicar, The Reverend Andy March, whose grandmother was in Dresden when the bombs began to fall.

The Rev March’s grandmother, Friedericke Clayton (née Büttner-Wöbst), was just 19 years old and was working just outside the city at the time of the bombing.

The vicar, who currently resides at St Christopher’s Church in Allesley Park, is one of a group of 12 Friends of Coventry Cathedral who have travelled to Germany for the occasion.

--The "twinning" and comparing of Coventry with Dresden is an insult to every German person and "friend of Germany and Dresden" on the planet. There is no comparison between the fate of the two cities. Coventry lost around 500 persons during the entire Battle of Britain, and the greatest damage to the whole town was to the Cathedral. It was symbolic and retributive since no other major religious and/or historical sites in England were bombed. But the desperate and deranged British bombed every famous, and even ancient, German church and cathedral they could reach, along with hundreds of other architectural treasures, in a hundred cities.

No comparison at all!

Plus there were legitimate industrial targets in Coventry, which is not the case for Dresden.

Give it up, Britain. You can't win. In the long run, you are the loser.

By J. M. Spaight. Published in 1944 by a former British Principal Secretary of the Air Ministry as a response to increasing discontent in Britain with the Allied bombing of German cities, this book set out to justify the saturation bombing of civilians.
Reflecting official British government policy, it states clearly that the idea to saturate bomb civilian targets was initiated by the British in May 1940, and that Hitler opposed to this concept and refused to retaliate for months while the German cities were bombed, hoping that “Churchill would come to his senses.”
This belief is dismissed as “stupid” by Spaight, who went on to describe as “pacifists” and “socialists” those Britons who objected to the bombing of civilians. The British bombers were designed to bomb cities, he said, while the “Teutonic mind” never even considered such a policy, and instead viewed an air force merely as a tool to “blast open” a path for attacking armies. The German air force, he pointed out, was never used for anything else until ordered to retaliate against the British campaign.
“Whatever Hitler wanted or did not want, he most assuredly did not a want the mutual bombing to go on. He had not wanted it ever to begin. He wanted it, having begun, to be called off. There was ample evidence that he did not want the latter kind of bombing to become the practice. He had done his best to have it banned by international agreement.”

(London: Geoffrey Bles, 1944)


Another entry in the World War sweepstakes.  See a British functionary (he was Principle Assistant Secretary of the Air Ministry) gleefully admit to the planned bombing of non-combatant targets, and how this was supposedly a wonderful advance in international conduct (it was supposed to "shorten the war" and allow him to look Russia in the face).  It became a "splendid decision" (p. 74) to violate international law!  He seems to be saying that it was OK as long as it was done in a cold, premeditated fashion (an artifact of fully judaized, freemasonic England).  He also says this had been planned from the earliest stages of  the war -- and how dare the Germans complain about it!  Must be read to be believed.

This book, published during WW II, is now almost impossible to find.  Thanks to C.W. Porter for the hardcopy.

The following is from Spaight's The Splendid Decision.  Compare with the above, ch. iii, p. 74:

"Adolf Hitler only undertook the bombing of British civilian targets reluctantly after the RAF had commenced bombing German civilian targets... It gave Coventry, Birmingham, Sheffield and Southampton the right to look Kiev, Kharkov, Stalingrad and Sebastopol in the face. Our Soviet allies would have been less critical of our inactivity if they had understood what we had done... Hitler would have been willing at any time to stop the slaughter. Hitler was genuinely anxious to reach with Britain an agreement confining the action of aircraft to battle zones."
