The Cold War was Started by Truman, Not by FDR, and Not by Stalin

The start of the US Government’s effort to take Control over the Entire Planet occurred on 25 July 1945 by US President Harry Truman, just a few months after President Franklin Delano Roosevelt had died on 12 April 1945.

Dr Marco Soddu’s excellent 13 December 2012 Study of Truman Administration’s Containment Policy in Light of the French Return to Indo China makes clear that, unlike FDR, President Truman’s historical understanding was poor and vulnerable to shaping by advisors who themselves had poor understanding, or perhaps ulterior motives.

President Roosevelt was far more of a strategic thinker than Truman was, and therefore was far less manipulable. In his 1 January 1945 Memorandum for the Secretary of State, Edward Stenttinius, whom Truman viewed as being soft on Communism and therefore Truman replaced him on 28 June 1945, even before deciding irrevocably to start a Cold War, FDR made clear that, “I still do Not Want to Get Mixed up in Any Indo China Decision. It is A Matter for Post War.” And, “I made This Very Clear to Mr Churchill. From Both the Military and Civil Point of View, Action at this Time is Premature.” The aristocracies of both Britain and France were obsessed to continue their Empires Post War. FDR held them off, but Truman was strongly inclined to yield to them whenever doing so would be “Anti Communist.” He was simply manipulable. He never really understood what FDR’s vision was of the Post War World, nor cared. In fact, on 29 August 1945, in a conversation between Madam Chiang Kai Shek and Truman, “Madame Chiang Recalled that President Roosevelt had Spoken of A Trusteeship for Indo China, whereupon the President Stated that There had Been No Discussion of A Trusteeship for Indo China as Far as he was Concerned.” This far, just a month, into the Cold War, supposedly against Communism instead of for forming an all inclusive Global US Empire, that he now was committed to, he still had never even thought about what FDR’s vision for the Post WWII World had been. To Truman, Communists personified Evil, to him, they were psychopaths and demons,  end of story.

By contrast, here was the reason why FDR strongly favored for existing colonies to become taken over, after the War, by the UN, which FDR had, since August 1941, been planning to be quite different from what Truman made it, as Trusteeships of the UN, on the road quickly to Independence, and Chiang knew at least something about this but Truman either didn’t, or else lied to say he didn’t.

Memorandum, President Roosevelt to the Secretary of State, January 24, 1944

I saw Halifax [Edward Wood, better known as Lord Halifax] last week and told him quite frankly that it was perfectly true that I had, for over a year, expressed the opinion that Indo China should not go back to France, but that it should be Administered by an International Trusteeship. France has had the Country, Thirty Million Inhabitants, for nearly One Hundred Years, and the people are worse off than they were at the beginning. As a matter of interest, I am wholeheartedly supported in this view by Generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek and by Marshal Stalin. I see no reason to play in with the British Foreign Office in this matter. The only reason they seem to oppose it is that they fear the effect it would have on their own Possessions and those of the Dutch. They have never liked the idea of u because it is, in some instances, aimed at Future Independence. This is true in the Case of Indo China. Each Case must, of course, stand on its own feet, but the Case of Indo China is perfectly clear. France has milked it for One Hundred Years. The people of Indo China are entitled to something better than that.

Another sign of bad faith on the part of the United States against the Soviet Union, besides the Marshall Plan and Operation Gladio, both instituted by Truman, seems to have been America’s Public Refusal to accept as being anything other than ‘Communist Tricks’ the repeated efforts by the Soviets to restore the US USSR Joint National Security Cooperation that had existed prior to 25 July 1945. America’s responses to each of those Soviet initiatives were insults, instead of welcoming the Soviet proposals and working behind the scenes with them to obtain progress toward the type of World Order that FDR had intended, a World Order policed by the United Nations, Not by the united Imperialistic Fascists. For example, on 19 September 1959 at the UN General Assembly, the Soviet Representative headlined “Declaration of the Soviet Government on General and Complete Disarmament” and presented a series of proposals including following.

Declaration of the Soviet Government on General and Complete Disarmament, September 19, 1959

Page 14

The Soviet Government proposes that the Programme of General and Complete Disarmament should be carried out within as short a time limit as possible, within a period of four years.

The Following Measures are Proposed for the First Stage

The Reduction, under appropriate control, of the strength of the Armed Forces of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the United States of America and the People’s Republic of China to the level of 1.7 million men, and of the United Kingdom and France to the level of 650,000 men,

The Reduction of the Armed Forces of other States to levels to be agreed upon at a Special Session of the United Nations General Assembly or at a World Conference on General and Complete Disarmament,

The Reduction of the Armaments and Military Equipment at the disposal of the Armed Forces of States to the extent necessary to ensure that the remaining quantity of Armaments corresponds to the level fixed for the Armed Forces.

The Following is Proposed for the Second Stage

The completion of the disbandment of the Armed Forces retained by States,

The elimination of all Military Bases in the Territories of Foreign States, Troops and Military Personnel shall be withdrawn from the territories of Foreign States to within their own National Frontiers and shall be disbanded.

The Following is for the Third Stage

The destruction of all types of Nuclear Weapons and Missiles,

The destruction of Air Force equipment;

The entry into force of the Prohibition on the Production, Possession and Storage of means of Chemical and Biological Weapons in the possession of States shall be removed and destroyed under International Supervision,

Scientific Research for Military Purposes and the Development of Weapons and Military Equipment shall be prohibited,

War Ministries, General Staffs and all Military and Para Military Establishments and Organizations shall be abolished,

All Military Courses and Training shall be terminated. States shall prohibit by Law the Military Education of young people.

In accordance with their respective Constitutional Procedures, States shall enact Legislation abolishing Military Service in all of its forms, compulsory, voluntary, by recruitment, and so forth. ()

Fourth Stage

Conclusion of a Non Aggression Pact between the Member States of NATO and the Member States of the Warsaw Treaty

The US Response came a few months later at the “Conference of the Ten Nation Committee on Disarmament”.

Conference of the Ten Nation Committee on Disarmament, 22 March 1960

Final Verbatim, Record of the Sixth Meeting, Held at the Palais des Nations, Geneva

Page 36

Mr Eaton, United States of America, I have no intention of entering into this discussion on Foreign Bases. I think the discussions that we have had here this morning have indicated that we shall run into political problems at the very earliest stage, problems on which earlier Conferences have foundered. I would only say that the Forces of my Government are only employed outside my own Country and within my own Country for the purpose of defending both ourselves and those of our Allies who wish to be associated with us, who welcome our Troops as a part of theirs and as a part of the Allied Defences, and for no other reason. Whenever the time comes when these Troops need not be employed, for Defensive purposes only, there need be no doubt in the mind of anyone here that those Forces Will Be Withdrawn.

Final Verbatim, Record of the Forty Sixth Meeting, Held at the Palais des Nations, Geneva

Mr Nosek, Czechoslovakia, What did Mr Eaton propose? He proposed the introduction of Control Measures. () exclusively with Measures of Control, that is with the old and well known Requirement of the United States, the introduction of Control over Armaments. Apparently with a view to misleading World Public Opinion, which requires a concrete discussion of General and Complete Disarmament, the United States Representatives are beginning to prefer, for tactical reasons, to call those Measures not “Partial Measures” but “Initial Steps” on the road to General and Complete Disarmament under effective International control.

The United Nations and Space Security: Conflicting Mandates

Page 17

This [obfuscation and evasion by the US, which on Page 16 was referred to as merely  “Proposals Directed Towards the Establishment of Control without Disarmament] ultimately led [on 28 June 1960] to the USSR, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Poland and Romania Not Attending the 48th Meeting of the Ten Nation Committee, which signalled the End of these Discussions in the Committee.

The US Government refused to discuss the Soviet Union’s Proposal for All War Weaponry to be placed under UN Command, and decision making only by the UN, to enforce only UN laws, no longer under the Command of individual Nations, such as by the US Regime’s “International Rules Based [id est, Not International Law Based] Order.”

Who benefited from America’s refusal even to Discuss what had been US President FDR’s aim for the Post WWII World? The beneficiaries are what Eisenhower when leaving Office called the “Military Industrial Complex,” and are basically America’s hundred largest Military Contractors, especially the owners of the largest Weapons Manufacturing Firms such as Lockheed. Ike had served them well, and then three days before leaving Office warned the Public about them so as not to be blamed, along with Truman, by historians, for having Created it.

Meanwhile, the German Industrialists, such as this, who were likeliest to have been the individuals who had funded Hitler’s Rise to Power, were let off scot free at the Nuremberg Tribunals after the War was over. Furthermore, as Bishnu Pathak documented in his 21 September 2020 Nuremberg Tribunal, A Precedent for Victor’s Justice, those Tribunals were, even at the time, widely condemned even by the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court and by the Chief US Prosecutor at the Tribunals, as being a “Sanctimonious Fraud,” a “High Grade Lynching Party” and nothing more than Victors’ ‘Justice’, instead of any respectable precedent setter for the UN, but Truman and the other Leaders of the Victor Powers simply did not care, and the UN became built upon that acceptance of Victors’ ‘Justice’, no improvement. One can not say whether FDR would have caved to that if he had not died first, but certainly the US that followed after him has been the type of Tyranny that he had always been scheming to prevent both for the US and for the World.

Furthermore, the OECD or Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development was set up in 1948 nominally in order ‘To Stimulate Economic Progress and World Trade,’ but actually to administer the Marshall Plan. The OECD was just another Anti Soviet US Organization, but, since the cash that it was distributing was going to Europe, its initial Membership was those Countries and it was Head Quartered in Paris, so as not to seem to be an extension from the US Government. The Organization changed its name to OECD in 1961 so as to hide from Historians that it had previously been called the OEEC, which was clearly traceable to the Cold War. The CIA edited and written Wikipedia says that “In 1948, the OECD originated as the Organisation for European Economic Co Operation (OEEC), [7] led by Robert Marjolin of France, to help administer the Marshall Plan which was rejected by the Soviet Union and its Satellite States. [8]” However, it wasn’t “Rejected by” them, but instead rejected them, just like the Marshall Plan itself rejected them.

The 1989 masterpiece by Christopher Simpson, Blowback, The First Full Account of America’s Recruitment of Nazis and Its Disastrous Effect on The Cold War, Our Domestic and Foreign Policy, documented the US Regime’s comprehensive employment of ‘ExNazis in order to assist its Goal of Conquering ‘Communism’ but really Russia. Then, on 7 April 2024, I headlined a supplementary account, How and Why the UK, US, and Canada, Governments imported Nazis into Canada, which I closed by saying “And This is How it came to be that the Pro Nazi Ukrainians in Canada have been Organized and Effectively Represented while the Others, the Non Nazi Ukrainians, were suppressed, and, above all, how it came to be the case that America’s Armaments Manufacturers and their NATO have thrived while Coup after Coup and Invasion after Invasion have continued to expand the US Empire up till the present moment.” All of this was an extension from Truman’s private decision on 25 July 1945, and its extension by Bush’s secret decision on 24 February 1990 to continue it even after Communism in Russia would be ended in 1991. Furthermore, my 23 March 2024 How Germany is Still Controlled by Nazis documented yet further, that as regards the anti Russian aspect of Hitler’s Nazism, there was no real change in Germany when the US Regime took it over from Hitler, and the rest of it from Gorbachev, other than the necessary cosmetic changes in the new Unified Germany, which, of course, required outlawing any public displays of Anti Semitism, as if Hitler had hated Only Jews, Jews were instead his Main hatred, but he Also hated, and aimed to enslave, all Russians, and, indeed, all Slavs.

I especially recommend reading Christopher Simpson’s Masterpiece, because it’s the best book yet done on the then and continuing Fraudulence of the US Regime’s allegations that the comprehensive Denazification of Germany’s Government, which FDR had been intending, and which was central to his planning for the Post WWII World, and which All Three of the Allies, FDR, Stalin, and Churchill, had supported, was carried out, instead of effectively aborted, by Truman and by Eisenhower, with Churchill’s support of aborting it,, and by all successive US Presidents and European Stooges since then. The inside the book excerpts at the Amazon site for Simpson’s Masterpiece, give a fair indication of the book, including its “Series Introduction,” by Mark Crispin Miller, which says that, “For over Half A Century, America’s Vast Literary Culture has been Disparately Policed, and Imperceptibly contained, by State and Corporate Entities well Placed and Perfectly Equipped to Wipe Out Wayward Writings,” including the History that this book documents. The US Government’s National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) had very reluctantly commissioned it, with an obligation to publish it, but then refused to publish the work because NARA’s Top Official refused to allow it. The team of investigators, headed by the work’s author, Simpson, finally found a publisher for the work, which was then, and since, suppressed. On 13 November 2010, Eric Lichtblau, whose chaotic anecdotal narrative book The Nazi Next Door was to be published in 2015, was The New York Times reporter headlining Nazis Were Given ‘Safe Haven’ in US, Report Says, and the newspaper introduced it by saying that, “An Internal History of the United States Government’s Nazi Hunting Operation provides Gripping New Evidence about Some of the Most Notorious Nazi Cases of the Last Three Decades. The Justice Department kept the 600 Page Report Secret for the last Four Years, releasing A Heavily Redacted Version last month to A Private Research Group that Sued to Force its Release. A complete version was obtained by The New York Times.” The 600 Page Complete Unredacted Secret Report, titled The Office of Special Investigations: Striving for Accountability in the Aftermath of the Holocaust, by Judy Feigin from the US Department of Justice, and dated December 2006, was linked to in the online version of the article, and it stated, flat out, on its Page 33, that “Congress’ overriding concern at the time was in helping Refugees escape Communist Rule.” In other words, the US Government’s  ‘Anti Communist’, actually Pro US Empire, obsession, ever since Truman took over, included assisting Nazis and their supporters to become “Refugees” in America and in its, after WWII, Colonies, ‘Allies’. And this has continued, likewise Secretly, ever since US President GHW Bush on 24 February 1990 started telling America’s European Stooges to Secretly continue the ‘Cold War’.

Investigative historian Eric Zuesse’s latest book, AMERICA’S EMPIRE OF EVIL, Hitler’s Posthumous Victory, and Why the Social Sciences Need to Change, is about how America took over the World after World War II in order to enslave it to US and allied billionaires. Their cartels extract the World’s wealth by control of not only their ‘News’ media but the social ‘Sciences’, duping the public.
