More Lies Of History Revealed: The Real Truth About The Sinking Of The Lusitania!

As a student of History, I have long become sickened by the lies that are taught to students from our so called "History" books.   When it comes especially to war history, it is a fact that the victors write the history!   We have seen again and again countless instances of reports and stories about the great wars of the 20th century that are now revealed to be absolutely false.  Such is now the case when it comes to the sinking of the RMS Lusitania by a German U-Boat on May 7th, 1915.

First a bit of history.. The Lusitania was south of Ireland on the afternoon of May 7th, 1915 on a course to its port at Liverpool.  At 1410 that afternoon, it was hit by a single torpedo fired from the U-boat U-20, captained by Walther Schwieger.   The single torpedo hit the liner on the starboard side right behind the bridge.   The Lusitania suddenly erupted in a huge violent explosion which was highly unusual for a single torpedo of 1915 vintage (!), and quickly started taking on water.   The ship sank within 18 minutes after the detonation, taking some 1195 passengers down with it, including 128 Americans.   The sinking of the Lusitania caused such outrage in America that it has always been said to be one of the keys towards America coming into the war against Germany in April 1917.

All of the so called "history" books that I have come across have always told the story of the sinking of the Lusitania as a case of a German U-Boat firing torpedoes into a helpless and unarmed civilian passenger liner.    For years, the German government has claimed that the Lusitania was far from being "helpless", but was in fact ferrying ammunition and arms to Great Britain in total violation of the rules of naval warfare that passenger liners were not to be used as  munitions ships!   And according to this report dated from December 2008, from the Mail Online news service, at, it now appears that the Germans were absolutely right, and our history books will have to be re-written about the Lusitania!  Here is that online report:

Secret of the Lusitania: Arms find challenges Allied claims it was solely a passenger ship

Her sinking with the loss of almost 1,200 lives caused such outrage that it propelled the U.S. into the First World War.

But now divers have revealed a dark secret about the cargo carried by the Lusitania on its final journey in May 1915.

Munitions they found in the hold suggest that the Germans had been right all along in claiming the ship was carrying war materials and was a legitimate military target.

Doomed: A contemporary view of the sinking of the Lusitania off Ireland in May 1915

The Cunard vessel, steaming from New York to Liverpool, was sunk eight miles off the Irish coast by a U-boat.
Maintaining that the Lusitania was solely a passenger vessel, the British quickly accused the 'Pirate Hun' of
slaughtering civilians. 

The disaster was used to whip up anti-German anger, especially in the U.S., where 128 of the 1,198 victims came from. 
A hundred of the dead were children, many of them under two.

Robert Lansing, the U.S. secretary of state, later wrote that the sinking gave him the 'conviction we would ultimately become the ally of Britain'.

Americans were even told, falsely, that German children were given a day off school to celebrate the sinking of the Lusitania.

The disaster inspired a multitude of recruitment posters demanding vengeance for the victims.


One, famously showing a young mother slipping below the waves with her baby, carried the simple slogan 'Enlist'.

Two years later, the Americans joined the Allies as an associated power  -  a decision that turned the war decisively against Germany.

The diving team estimates that around four million rounds of U.S.-manufactured Remington .303 bullets lie in the Lusitania's hold at a depth of 300ft.

The Germans had insisted the Lusitania  -  the fastest liner in the North Atlantic  -  was being used as a weapons ship to break the blockade Berlin had been trying to impose around Britain since the outbreak of hostilities in August 1914. 

Winston Churchill, who was first Lord of the Admiralty and has long been suspected of knowing more about the circumstances of the attack than he let on in public, wrote in a confidential letter shortly before the sinking that some German submarine attacks were to be welcomed.
He said: 'It is most important to attract neutral shipping to our shores, in the hope especially of embroiling the U.S. with Germany.

'For our part we want the traffic  -  the more the better and if some of it gets into trouble, better still.'

Hampton Sides, a writer with Men's Vogue in the U.S., witnessed the divers' discovery.
He said: 'They are bullets that were expressly manufactured to kill Germans in World War I  -  bullets that British officials in Whitehall, and American officials in Washington, have long denied were aboard the Lusitania.'

The discovery may help explain why the 787ft Lusitania sank within 18 minutes of a single German torpedo slamming into its hull. 

Some of the 764 survivors reported a second explosion which might have been munitions going off.

Gregg Bemis, an American businessman who owns the rights to the wreck and is funding its exploration, said: 'Those four million rounds of .303s were not just some private hunter's stash.

'Now that we've found it, the British can't deny any more that there was ammunition on board. That raises the question of what else was on board.

'There were literally tons and tons of stuff stored in unrefrigerated cargo holds that were dubiously marked cheese, butter and oysters.

'I've always felt there were some significant high explosives in the holds  -  shells, powder, gun cotton  -  that were set off by the torpedo and the inflow of water. That's what sank the ship.'

Mr Bemis is planning to commission further dives next year in a full-scale forensic examination of the wreck off County Cork.

NTS Notes:  Again, this shows how what has been taught in schools about our history is turning out to be complete and utter BS.    

It does seem logical that a secondary explosion caused the demise of the Lusitania, and now that is revealed to be the truth.  What we are seeing again is how the British and Americans were liars and hypocrites during the "Great War", especially when it comes to the facts behind the sinking of the Lusitania. 

Another part of history shown for what it really is... I really need to ask again what else when it comes to our "history" of the World Wars will finally be revealed as fraudulent?    If and when they come out, I sure will be putting them up here for everyone to see.... Stay tuned...

More to come

This could well have been a pivotal point for the entire century, NTS. It's a very good article and with some great comments from you.

Here is what the 1950's author, William Guy Carr had to say about circumstances of which this was a part. I think what he actually is saying in the first paragraph is that jewish international bankers were controlling the entire situation through the Grand Orient council. This is from my files and I haven't checked this link for a long time but I think it takes you to the exact page, where he also recounts the speech of the supposedly non-existent, Rabbi Rabbinovich, and I think he had written this tract earlier [1952, I think] than it's 1958 publish date. [The supposed Rosa Rabbinovich was sent in to confuse that issue].

"A review of history, 1914-1934, indicates:

(1) That the international bankers fomented World War I to bring about conditions favourable for revolutionary action and thus enable them to obtain undisputed control of the Russian Empire.

(2) To remove the Crowned Heads of Europe. These rulers had to be removed before either group could achieve their totalitarian ambitions.

(3) To force the British and French governments to agree to establish A National Home for the Jews in Palestine.

The government of Britain was forced to aid the international bankers plan for the Bolshevik revolution in Russia in 1917 in order to obtain their promise that they would bring America into the war on the side of the allies. It can be assumed that S.S. Lusitania was sunk to provide the necessary incident to justify the changer of American policy, just as Pearl Harbour was used as an excuse for America to enter World War II."

Flanders, you are so right about the circumstances by which WW1 was fought...

It was also mentioned by Benjamin Freedman in his famous speech in Philadelphia about how these scoundrels set up Germany to fall in WW1 so that they could get their cherished Palestine!
