    German Prisoners Used in Britain After the End of World War II

    BBC News

    English Sporting icons don't come much bigger than Wembley Stadium but few realise that it owes some of its splendour to the labour of German prisoners of war .The news, which follows an investigation by BBC Radio 4's Document programme, may come as a shock to many England fans who view Germany as their fiercest sporting rivals ... Questions were raised in the House of Commons about why the men were still in captivity. Some argued that Britain was in breach of the Geneva Convention for not releasing the POWs as soon as fighting had finished. The government denied the charge. It claimed that the convention did not apply because no actual peace deal had been signed with Germany which had surrendered unconditionally.

    I can believe this.There was quite a few German POWs who where captured in the Africa Corps.One of those families stayed behind in the little town of Haskell,
    Oklahoma where I grew up.They where used to grow crops along the Arkansas,
    River because they where already used to the heat of the desert which is hot like Oklahomas climate.
    There is a story in Haskell about how the Germans where allowed to celebrate holidays and they struck up the band and marched through downtown Haskell.
    All the residents loved it.A family stayed behind named the Schlegels,and owned a store not to far from where my father grew up.Their children and my father became best friends.I remember their great grandmother telling the story of getting kicked by one of the SA soldiers for not saluting Hitler.The kick broke her hip and she had to walk with a cane.I got to see their Grandfathers medals and such.You can read about the parade in Haskell below.

    there is still no peace treaty officially we are in an armistice. The 3rd Reich still exists, or for that matter to be accurate the 2nd Reich because the 3rd is just a buzz word.

    The current states on german soil are illegal states, that includes the Federal Republic of Germany as well as what is known as Poland.

    All treaties signed by the FRG (BRD) are not valid. That means the EU and the money they rob via the Mehrwertsteuer (EU sales tax about 25 % right now) is to be returned.

    Does that mean that every German nationalist has the right to rise up against this illegal government and overthrow it, and take back all the rightful land taken from them?

    Throw Off the Chains

    If the Germans were to violently dispatch of the Bundesrepublik, you can bet that the Zionists would be right back at their old games, to find a way to destroy Germany. Not to mention that there are still sizeable US troops in Germany who could be ordered to put down rebellion. Hmmm, how would the Bundeswehr troops react? Would they side with a modern-day Arminius, or would they be good mercenaries, side with the Amis and target their own folk?

    Also, there are still 10 to 20 nuclear warheads in Germany. Whose hand rests on the switch? I highly doubt that is a German.
