“I never saw him so completely beside himself as toward the end of the war, when in his delirium he envisioned to himself and us the destruction of New York in firestorms. He described how the skyscrapers would be transformed into gigantic, burning torches; how they collapsed onto one other and how the glow of the bursting city brightened the dark sky.”
These designs for New York were not unique to Nazism.
The Kaiser, was a vehement critic of capitalism and democracy, particularly the kind that was practiced by the United States. He felt that capitalism was incredibly vulnerable; he believed that an attack on the international systems of trade, credit, and insurance could bring America to its knees.
A physical attack on New York was part of his plan. The Kaiser's war planners were also the first Germans to see the benefit of a relationship with Jihadis, but certainly not the last.
The plan under the Nazi period certainly extended to using Germany's new long range Amerika Bomber to hit the east-coast.
What many people now do not realise is that Germany's aim for New York, because of being the centre for what Germans saw as the centre of Jewish Capitalism, was nothing less than complete and total destruction.
German navy briefings include an entry dated Nov.14, 1940 that says the Führer was planning to “attack America in case of war” from the Azores, so as to force the US to build up an air defense system instead of supplying the British with flak batteries.
Similar entries can be found in the war logs of the German army, the Wehrmacht, compiled by Percy Ernst Schramm, a major and later a Göttingen-based historian, as well as the logs of Army Adjutant Gerhard Engel. He recorded a remark by Hitler to him on March 24, 1941, that terror attacks on US east coast cities were necessary to “teach the Jews a lesson,” as American financiers were clamoring for war. Therefore, Hitler said, he hoped for the prompt availability of long-range bombers.
Nazi Germany was slow to investigate nuclear weapons, primarily due to one simple fact – most of their nuclear physicists were Jewish, and had been chased from the country or killed. Working with a minuscule budget, they struggled with the use of impure graphite as neutron moderator and small supplies of heavy water from the separators in hydro-electric dams. On the 23rd June 1942 they built a “Uranium Machine” at the University of Leipzig which went wild showering burning uranium over a period of 2 days.
For a while it looked like the whole project would be put on hold as too costly, but in 1944 two potential launch design projects were authorised. At the same time the whole German Atomic research programme was code named “Virus House” after the former medical research buildings used. The intended target of the bomb was to be downtown Manhattan and in January 1944 a prototype of the 6 engine Junkers JU-390 bomber flew on a secret mission to test the feasibility of dropping a nuclear bomb on New York. The Ju-390 was twice the size of the B-29 Superfortress. It was powered by six 1,500 hp BMW radial engines and it had a range of 18,000 miles without refuelling.
The 32 hour flight went completely undetected as the bomber flew to within 20km of its target (America was totally unprepared for air-raids) and returned, a round trip of some 9,656km.
At the same time work started on a towed submarine pod carrying 3 V-2(A-4) missiles, each of which could carry a nuclear device. Had the war continued much longer, Peenemunde was working on their plans for the A-9/A-10 two stage ICBM, which was capable of reaching New York.
How far did they get ? – At the end of the war two prototype bomb spheres were allegedly found under water by French forces, who claimed they destroyed them. We do know that in May 1945 the German submarine U-234 was intercepted on its way to Japan carrying 560-kgs of Uranium oxide for their atomic programme.
Various sources suggest that by 1942 Japan was well advanced with its atomic bomb programme under the code name “F-go” and had even tested a device at its facility in Hungnam North Korea. Little is known as they destroyed most of their research, but after their surrender on 15th August 1945, US troops found 5 cyclotrons (used to separate fissionable material from Uranium) smashed them and dumped them in Tokyo harbour. Rumour has it that all equipment and Japanese nuclear experts were spirited away by Russia troops that captured the facility. Apparently following its capture, Russian submarines collected the heavy water output of Hungnam every other month. There are indications that Japan had a larger and more advanced programme than was originally thought and that Nazi Germany co-operated, including the above-mentioned exchange of materials.
It is certainly interesting that the symbolic act of 9/11 coincides with Germany's rise and attempts to push a different economic system on Europe. Not to mention that 9/11 was actually planned in Hamburg.
The Chief of Hamburg Police at the time of 9/11, who was the subject of certain allegations regarding the Hamburg Cell by the Bush administration, later became the head of Germany's foreign intelligence service BND.
This article is very revealing;
"volume of evidence suggesting that the German intelligence services were much closer to the potential terrorists in Hamburg before September 11 than they have wanted to admit."
