    Causes of WW1 – Twisted Politics in Serbia

    Today we discuss the brutal murder of a European Monarchie, hyper nationalism in Serbia and the origins of the secret regicide network known as the “Black Hand” (you know, the guys who kill Archduke Ferdinand).

    As Ralph Raico says – “The immediate origins of the 1914 war lie in the twisted politics of the Kingdom of Serbia.[1] In June, 1903, Serbian army officers murdered their king and queen in the palace and threw their bodies out a window, at the same time massacring various royal relations, cabinet ministers, and members of the palace guards. It was an act that horrified and disgusted many in the civilized world. The military clique replaced the pro-Austrian Obrenovic dynasty with the anti-Austrian Karageorgevics. The new government pursued a pro-Russian, Pan-Slavist policy, and a network of secret societies sprang up, closely linked to the government, whose goal was the ‘liberation’ of the Serb subjects of Austria (and Turkey), and perhaps the other South Slavs as well.”

    Did you say murder? Well now I need to listen.

    Causes of WW1 – Anglo-German Arms Race

    Today, we discuss the polarization of Europe’s geopolitical system, along with the naval arms race between Britain and Germany.

    As Christopher Clark says – “If you compare a diagram of the alliances among the European great powers in 1887 with a similar map for the year 1907, you see the outlines of a transformation. The first diagram reveals a multipolar system, in which a plurality of forces and interests balance each other in precarious equilibrium. Move forward twenty years to a diagram of the European alliances in 1907, and the picture has changed utterly. You see a bipolar Europe organized around two alliance systems”

    Well how did this all happen? Listen to this episode to find out.

Sounds down to earth, however bad foundation

Listening to your Israeli Palestinian episode, showed how skeptical we must be of where you guys come from. Just the first line regarding Eisenhower was incorrect. Eisenhower actually sided with Nasser against Israel and England, threatening to cut them off. He later said it was the worst decision he made in his presidency. Nixon was going to let Israel burn until he realized that the only democracy was worth fighting for. Anything you say is based on incorrect information if you do not first start with Nasser creating the terrorist PLO to destroy the Hashemite, kingdom of Iraq, and Jordan. On top of that, none of the original PLO, were from Israel they were all from Egypt and other lands. Including Arafat, who was from Egypt, and whose father actually sued Egypt for land and lost. He had never been to Palestine or Israel before. So everything you say is coming off of the wrong foundation.
