Czechoslovakia: How Britain Turned the Failure of a State into a Cause for War

Postby Lamprecht » 1 week 4 days ago (Tue Nov 17, 2020 6:50 pm)

John Wear has written a new article on Czechoslovakia and how the disorder in this region was used by the British government as a pretense to start a war with Germany. Czechoslovakia was a state first created after the end of World War I and was not unified on ethnic or cultural lines: Czechoslovakia was populated by Czechs, Slovaks, Hungarians, Ruthenians, Poles, and Germans. The state of Czechoslovakia actually ceased to exist after Slovakia declared independence in March 1939. The state of Czechoslovakia also broke apart at the next opportunity in the 1990s.

An excerpt:
Czechoslovakia: How Britain Turned the Failure of a State into a Cause for War

John Wear

The Munich Agreement signed by Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Italy on September 30, 1938 was meant to mark the beginning of a new era in European affairs. The Versailles Treaty, which had been so deleterious to Germany, was now successfully dismantled without a war. A new epoch, based on equality and mutual confidence among the four great European Powers, was supposed to take its place.[1]

British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain told the cheering crowd in London that welcomed him home after signing the Munich Agreement, “I believe it is peace in our time.”[2] Unfortunately, the mutual confidence that was supposed to arise among the four great European powers quickly unraveled. This article discusses the events that led to Germany’s assuming the protection of Czechoslovakia, and their exploitation by British high officials to promote war against Germany.

[...]

Conclusion

The “brutal violation of little, defenseless Czecho-Slovakia” by Germany was a falsehood which was ceaselessly pounded into the masses by the opinion-makers of the press. In reality, Dr. Emil Hácha traveled to Berlin of his own volition in order to prevent chaos from breaking out in Bohemia and Moravia, which was threatening to erupt unless the Reich government intervened. Germany’s protectorate of Czechoslovakia maintained peace in a region that was facing both internal disruption and potential conquest by neighboring countries.[27]

What I find so telling about court historians whenever they speak about "poor Czechoslovakia" is that they usually have enough honesty to admit that Britain helped engineer dozens upon dozens of armed conflicts going back all the way to the 17th Century whenever placed in a position where it is easy to do so, and yet we're somehow supposed to believe whenever convenient for their agenda that they as the "morally righteous" country would never exploit "poor {insert country}" to advance their own warmongering interests? :lol: What drivel.
