Nazi German V2 Rocket Production During World War II 

Nazi-German-V2-rocket

The V2 rocket was one of the most expensive pieces of weaponry utilized during World War II. The V2 rocket was manufactured under slave labor conditions and although it was successful in its ability to kill 5000 people during its various attacks, 10,000 – 20,000 people died during its production as miscalculations and errors often occurred during the various manufacturing and testing processes. The V2 rocket was primarily built by Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, and French prisoners of war. Overworking, underfeeding, and not providing sanitation caused many deaths to these slave laborers which hindered the ability to produce the unrealistic quota demands Adolf Hitler had requested of the German military. For each V2 rocket which was produced, 6 slave laborers died. Wernher von Braun performed many calculations for the German military in terms of the amount of concentration camp slave laborers required to meet demand quotas as well as how many people were expected to die during each production run. Prisoners were often hung publicly within the labor camps as punishment for resistance or sabotage of the project

Japanese Imperial Sexual Slavery During World War II

Over 200,000 women and girls were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II across Asia. The Japanese referred to these people as “comfort women”. Since January 8, 1992, elderly Korean women and their supporters have protested in front of the Japanese embassy in Korea every single Wednesday without fail

The Power and Reach of the Federal Bureau of Investigation 

Federal-Bureau-of-Investigation

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has an annual operating budget of $8,000,000,000 ($8 billion), staffing over 13,500 special agents and over 22,000 analysts, scientists, and specialists. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has over 400 locations in the US and dozens of international offices referred to as “legal attaches”. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has hundreds of agents in over 80 countries around the world, truly making it a global law enforcement force. When the Federal Bureau of Investigation infiltrates a vehicle or building, they typically send 10 agents, each with a special task. Someone will disable the alarm, someone will photograph the room effected so nothing is put back out of place even going so far as to place a piece of tape where a chair was or add their own dust they brought along if dust was disturbed during the mission or bringing a small vacuum to clean up any debris caused by drilling into a wall. If the owner of the vehicle or building is on their way and could expose the operation, local police will intercept them by staging a traffic stop for a ticket, staging a traffic accident, or even opening a fire hydrant so nobody can cross through the road. In some instances, agents will enter a building while the target is home. Instances of this have occurred in the past with phone lines purposely being degraded in their call quality so that the owner calls the telecommunications company they are with for an on-site consult. The Federal Bureau of Investigation intercepts this call and places their own person in place of the actual repair person so that a listening device can be installed or any other desired outcome achieved. This method was effective and instrumental in taking down multiple high ranking mafia members including John Gotti

US Military Black Operations

black-op

The term “black ops” refers to “any operation which is unconventional”. While the government of the United States of America denies the existence of black ops, the “Top Secret: Tier 1” status of a black ops mission can only be approved to go ahead at the highest levels of government, involving either the President or Secretary of Defense. The idea of a black ops mission is to deliver a scalpel instead of the traditional hammer of war, working at the hand of the US without the US being accountable for that hand; essentially an organization which is stateless, borderless, and with complete immunity and impunity of the law

The Bombing of Laos

Laos-bomb

Per capita, Laos is the most bombed country in the entire world, having more bombs dropped upon it during the Vietnam War than that which was dropped upon Germany and Japan combined during World War II. Many of these bombs never detonated and thus many Laotian farmers, children, and other civilians have been permanently disabled, maimed, or killed while working or playing in fields when these clandestine explosives suddenly detonate without warning

Strategic Naval Expansion Throughout History

Contrary to movies and stories about naval battles, ships were rarely if ever sunk, because a ship which was boarded and overpowered, could be added to the fleet of the winning side. Ships were virtually never torched and the crew was rarely killed. Crew mates would often die in battle but those who survived would be taken as prisoners and hired as mercenaries who would then fight for the country of which the captain represented. This was a quick way to build up a naval fleet with almost no financial investment other than paying the initial fleets to go about the seas and capture ships and crews

Triage

The term “triage” is derived from the French term “trier” meaning “selection” and is suspected to have originated during the Napoleonic Wars from the work of Dominique-Jean Larrey. The term “triage” was used further during World War I by French doctors treating the battlefield wounded at aid stations behind the front. Those responsible for the removal of the wounded from a battlefield or their care afterwards would divide the victims into three categories with the first being those who are likely to live, regardless of the care they receive, the second being those who are unlikely to live, regardless of the care they receive, and the third being those for whom immediate care may have a drastic and/or positive difference in the final outcome of their ability to survive
