Munitions Found on the Lusitania

By December 24, 2008

Follow me on:

On May 7, 1915, the RMS Lusitania was sunk by a German U-boat during World War I. Of the 1,959 people on board, 1,198 died in this disaster. When the U.S. heard that 128 of the dead were Americans, they were furious. Although the Germans had claimed that the Lusitania was a valid military target because it had been war materials, popular belief at the time was that it was solely a passenger vessel. The sinking of what seemed a completely neutral ship, spurred the U.S. to enter into World War I against the Germans.

Recently, divers explored the wreckage of the Lusitania, situated eight miles off of the coast of Ireland. In the hold of the Lusitania, the divers found approximately four million rounds of U.S.-made Remington .303 bullets. The discovery supports Germany's claim that the Lusitania had been used to shuttle war materials. The find also supports the theory that the second explosion on the Lusitania was caused by munitions on board rather than a second torpedo from the U-boat.

Somehow it is not surprising that the munitions were from the USA.

The World is never what it seems.

Media usually states things through a good-and-bad-guys model. People swallow that easily
and build their culture (myths and legends).

It serves one purpose, desinformation. War is deception, disguise, make-believe. It seems we have been in a global war always.

In the last 50 years, ever since JFK death in Dallas back in 1963 up to the 9/11 in New York, the world have been dealing with “mega FX work to make the music die”. We may know the gestures by the media but cannot be certain about their real origin or purpose.

Columbia shuttle wreckage, was it a just a strength of materials issue? Sabotage? There was a lot of confussion around information until Nasa delivered a final Report written by its technician, a kind of Warren Commission report. Many things were blurred.
According to information at the time, one of the members of the crew said good bye to his brothers and family as if going to a suicidal mission.

We may presume, for instance, that the Munich attack in the 1972 Olympic Games was not only aimed against a particular group but rather aimed to obliterate the belief in the Olympics. At least, that is precisely what they achieved. 1976 Olympics weren’t an easy one, until Comaneci revived it the very first day with her Perfect Ten in Gimnastics and turned the great games into a happyhour again.

The truth arises sooner or later, but out of opportunity. We should have known the truth about Lusitania before the war, not after.

But truth is conveyed by information and knowledge of it is trapped in the head of freemen who have to be shut up in the line of duty, because of an oath before a bible or whatever other book, some good or bad reason.

We have knowledge in the world but not free knowledge. Poverty is the lack of things, richness and assets. Misery is having all that and not being able to use it or apply it for a better living. It is misery tha causes poverty in the world, not the reverse.

Knowing and telling lies is a form of misery.Having knowledge and keeping it secret is a form of misery.

We have everything to be a happy world but we inherited the misery tropism from some source in history. May be its only our nature as individuals or as a groups.

That’s it.

If the second explosion was caused by munitions, why did the divers find so much?

Four million rounds of U.S.-made Remington .303 bullets would support Germany’s claim that the Lusitania had been used to shuttle war materials.

With that many people on boad, boat should have been taken to a port

Could we have a ref to a news story or other evidence at to the diver’s story. Otherwise this is just so much hot air.

Whenever and wherever the war breaks out, it will have a lot of victims both from military soldiers and civilians, so what is the war for???? It it is absolutely nothing. Come on let’s leave in a peaceful world!

We can read in G. Edward Griffin’s book, “The Creature From Jekyll Island”, that the German government indeed did send a notice to fifty U.S. newspapers. That notice announced that the holds below the ship were known to have been converted to munitions-carrying capacity. That notice made clear that U.S. passengers would be at risk while sailing on the Lusitania.
Sadly, only one of the fifty newspapers ran the German article.
Worse, we now have evidence that Col. Edward Mandel House, President Wilson’s chief adviser and an avowed socialist, influenced Wilson at the request of the Rhodes Round table group from England to seek any pretext which might provide motivation within the American public to enter the war on the side of England. Col. House was up to his eyebrows with European banking “interests” and their hidden agenda(s).

A close look at 20th Century American history reveals the complicity of international financiers in the causal events which produced both World Wars and the Cold War and finally a War on Terror. These facts are now available to anyone, and are sourced with corporate and government records.

To get even more upset, get and read the book by Robert Stinnett, “Day of Deceit: The Truth About FDR And Pearl Harbor.

I absolutely agree with the last person’s comments. This orchestration of events has become increasingly more obvious and exposed. It’s all there is the public domain but too many are either too lazy to get informed or too scared to report it.

Colonel E.M. House even spoke of the sinking of the Lusitania (see his diaries) before it happened.
