It’s time that we name and shame war criminals that have escaped justice because they are white and come from the West. Even President Obama’s Kenyan grandfather was imprisoned without trial, tortured and died under Churchill’s empire. Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin was even warned by Cabinet colleagues not to appoint Churchill because his views were antediluvian. Churchill was described as a ‘racist soldier, politician, mass murderer and holocaust-denying writer’ though revered as a hero/icon in Western circles. It comes as no surprise when British Prime Minister, David Cameron, has called Churchill the greatest ever Prime Minister” while Britons voted him as the greatest Briton to have ever lived. We can only conclude that either Cameron or the Brits do not know or do not care about the criminalities of Winston Churchill! “History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it” and that obviously is how all of us have been misled to believe him a hero.

John Denson is perfectly correct to say that mainstream propaganda is guilty of “patriotic political myths” surrounding Churchill.

Churchill was born in 1874, educated at Harrow and Sandhurst and taught that the white man was superior and was duti-bound to conquer the primitive, dark-skinned natives and civilize them. In his eyes all non-whites were ‘barbarous people’.

Churchill entered politics in 1900 joining the conservative party and then joining the Liberal Party in 1904. He became Prime Minister of UK in 1940 when the Chamberlain government resigned over Churchill’s aborted plan to pre-emptively invade Norway.

His greatness is supposed to come in refusing Hitlers peace overtures. Had that happened millions of lives would have been saved!

Churchill in India

  • Churchill on Mahatma Gandhi ought to be lain, bound hand and foot at the gates of Delhi and then trampled on by an enormous elephant with the new Viceroy, seated on its back”.
  • I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion”.

  • British mass murder of Indians commenced with the Great Bengal Famine in 1769-1779 concluded with the WW2 Bengal Famine
  • Insisted on maintaining Hindu-Muslim antipathy to preserve British rule
  • General Wavell’s diaries repeatedly make it clear that Churchill hated Indians and steadfastly refused his pleas for assistance with the Bengal Famine. in spite of repeated appeals from two successive Viceroys, Churchill’s own Secretary of State for India and even the President of the United States – Churchill not only refused to help but forbid others to help.
  • journalist Madhusree Mukherjee blames Mr Churchill’s policies for being largely responsible for one of the worst famines in India’s history (Churchill’s Secret War)

Churchill in Pakistan

  • On May 5, 1945, the very day Germany surrendered, Prime Minister Churchill ordered an appraisal of the long-term policy required to safeguard the strategic interests of the British Empire in India and the Indian Ocean.” The British wanted a base in Pakistan from where they could use fire power against the then Soviet Union.
  • Pakistan was created by Britain with the explicit intention of keeping Pakistan under the British sphere of influence so that the game against Russia could continue.
  • The partition of India with Pakistan caused the death of about 2.5 million people and displaced some 12.5 million

Churchill in Sudan -1898

  • Churchill served as a young cavalry officer and bragged that he personally shot at least three ‘savages’.

Churchill in Singapore

Churchill – Ireland

  • As Colonial Secretary in the 1920s, he unleashed the notorious Black and Tan thugs on Ireland’s Catholic civilians
  • Church as an MP
  • Demanded more conquests on premise that ‘Aryan stock is bound to triumph’.

Churchill – Middle East

  • It was in 1912 at a conference in Cairo that the boundaries of the British Middle Eastern mandate was determined.
  • Before World War 1, what is now called Iraq was part of the Turkish Empire and was known as Mesopotamia—the ancient Biblical land of Babylon. During the war, the British, French, Italian, and Russian governments had signed a secret agreement to divide up most of the Turkish Empire among themselves. France gained control of what is now known as Syria and Lebanon. British acquired control of what became known as Palestine, Jordan, and Iraq (through mandates of the League of Nations) In 1899 the British had already established a protectorate” over what is now called Kuwait. British suppression of the Arab revolt in Iraq (invaded by Britain in 1914)
  • In early 1921 Winston Churchill was appointed Secretary of State for the Colonies as well as head of a Middle East Department responsible for Palestine and Iraq in the British government of Prime Minister David Lloyd George.
  • Churchill never consulted a single Arab about his plans for them! Churchill himself boasted, he created Jordan with a stroke of a pen one Sunday afternoon,” The huge zigzag in Jordan’s eastern border with Saudi Arabia has been called Winston’s Hiccup” or Churchill’s Sneeze” because Churchill carelessly drew the expansive boundary after a generous lunch. Jordan was gifted to Prince Abdullah. Abdullah’s brother was given Iraq. Iraq was created by bundling together the three Ottoman vilayets of Basra that was predominantly Shiite, Baghdad that was Sunni, and Mosul that was mainly Kurd. Churchill invented Iraq putting 3 conflicting borders that have been fighting each other ever since. If Jordanians, Iraqis, Kurds and Palestinians nurse any grievance it is all because of the British and no other.
  • When Iraqi’s rose in opposition to British rule, Churchill’s orders were to bomb civilian areas using mustard and other poisonous gases.
  • Kurdish rebellion against the British dictatorship in 1920
  • In 1919, as Colonial Secretary Churchill advocated the use of chemical weapons on the “uncooperative Arabs” in the puppet state of Iraq.
  • I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilized tribes”.
  • The Al Saud family were given Saudi Arabia

Churchill – World War 1

  • 7m military deaths
  • 7m civilian deaths
  • 4million German soldier deaths
  • 2m German civilian deaths
  • “Perhaps the next time round the way to do it will be to kill women, children and the civilian population.”

Churchill – World War 2

  • 25m military deaths
  • 67m civilian deaths
  • Promoting Japan to enter to involve US
  • Churchill deliberately did not warn Americans about Pearl Harbor attack
  • Between 1940 and 1945, sixty-one German cities with a total population of 25 millions were destroyed or devastated in a bombing campaign initiated by the British government. supported bombing of German cities
  • indiscriminate bombing of German towns and cities makes Churchill a war criminal.
  • Churchill brazenly lied to the House of Commons and the public, claiming that only military and industrial installations were targeted. The aim of carpet bombing was to kill as many Germans as possible.
  • “The destruction of Germany was by then on a scale which might have appalled Attila or Genghis Khan.” (official history of the Royal Air Force)
  • Even after the war was over for three days and nights, from February 13 to 15, 1945, British bombs pounded Dresden, killing as many as 135,000 people or more. After the bombing was over Churchill’s response was “I thought the Americans did it.”
  • Churchill supported the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which resulted in the deaths of another 200,000 civilians
  • Churchill’s crimes also include forced repatriation of some two million old people, men, women, and children to the Soviet Union to their deaths
  • He is also guilty of the expulsion of 15 million Germans from their ancestral homelands in East and West Prussia, Silesia, Pomerania, and the Sudetenland in a plan to violently uproot the entire polish population and move Poland westward

Churchill – Palestine & Israel

  • Churchill assured to hand over the ‘Promised Land’ to both Arabs and Jews
  • Churchill laughed at the Arabs calling them ‘barbaric hoards who ate little but camel dung’ while his view of the Israeli’s was ‘take it for granted that the local population will be cleared out to suit their convenience’.
  • Balfour declaration of 1917 assured Britain’s support for a Jewish homeland
  • 1944 UK War Cabinet decision Partition of Palestine [in 1878, Jews were 5% of the Palestine population; in 1948 Jews were 1/3 of the population; there are now over 7 million Palestinian refugees; post-1967 Occupied Palestinian excess deaths 0.3 million, post-1967 under-5 infant deaths 0.2 million; excess deaths in countries partially or completely occupied by Apartheid Israel now total about 24 million; 4 million Occupied Palestinians are still illegally and abusively imprisoned by racist Zionists in their own country (Dr. Gideon Polya)

Vicious quotes by Churchill

  • In 1937, he told the Palestine Royal Commission: I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place.”
  • the multiplication of the feeble-minded is a very terrible danger to the race”. (drafting a highly controversial piece of legislation, which mandated that the mentally ill be forcibly sterilized. In a memo to the Prime Minister in 1910)

Every disaster of the 20th century had a hand of Churchill in it. From helping liberalism, to its crash in 1929, starting the World War 1, falsely bringing America into the war theatre, fanning US-Russia rift, the crimes committed by Churchill should make the Brits revisit their affection. He is no hero. He should not be celebrated just as Christopher Columbus should not be celebrated. Just because he won a war his crimes cannot and should not be whitewashed. Had a non-white committed the atrocities that Churchill committed he would have been hounded and taken before the UN & its courts and imprisoned. Why have Churchill’s crimes escaped justice?

    In one of his books riding an elephant in Kenya Churchil says he thoughtt why God gave this beatiful land to the Blacks who are unable to appreicate the gift the God has given to them.

    THANKS SHENALI !! I am a lover of watching WAR FILMS, And I like reading War History. I learnt a lot from this post. Thanks once again.

    Following are some of Winston Churcills statements:

    When Mahatma Gandhi launched his campaign of peaceful resistance against British rule in India, Churchill raged that Gandhi:

    “ought to be lain bound hand and foot at the gates of Delhi, and then trampled on by an enormous elephant with the new Viceroy seated on its back. Gandhi-ism and everything it stands for will have to be grappled with and crushed.”

    In 1931 he sneered: “It is alarming and also nauseating to see Mr. Gandhi, a seditious Middle Temple lawyer of the type well-known in the East, now posing as a fakir, striding half naked up the steps of the Viceregal palace to parley on equal terms with the representative of the King-Emperor.”

    As Gandhi’s support increased, Churcill announced:

    “I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion.”

    In 1943 a famine broke out in Bengal, caused by the imperial policies of the British. In reply to the Secretary of State for India’s telegram requesting food stock to relieve the famine, Churchill wittily replied:

    “If food is scarce, why isn’t Gandhi dead yet?”

    Up to 3 million people starved to death. Asked in 1944 to explain his refusal to send food aid, Churchill jeered:

    “Relief would do no good. Indians breed like rabbits and will outstrip any available food supply.”

    This Churchill guy is nothing more than the uncivilized rouge thug, a mass murderer who pioneered rape as a war weapon. He and his supporters and admirers must be condemned by the civilised world. UK was one of the most uncivilised and racist countries in the world then and also now. They are not very different to animals in the wild.

  6. Sunil Mahattaya Says:

    this is cheap sensationalism combined with ignorance displayed about one of the world’s greatest statesman and military leaders..
    Yes some of his statements were hard to fully comprehend but facts sometimes are stubborn.
    The world was a safer place primarily from the evils of Naziism and Hitlerian terror because of his efforts.
    Find out what he said about Islam- you just may reel over it too.
    As for Wetta’a comments they are not worth a reply as they too seem laced in ignorance plus plus!
    But of course such animosity and venom must have their reasons unbeknown to the many who admire Churchill and name calling the British seems to be a popular pastime amongst many Sri Lankans of today- Freedom of speech at its lowest level surely. Apathetic surely!!
    So what do you folks have to say about Gen. Sarath Fonseka? Genius or ungrateful traitor and ship jumper maybe!!

  7. Lorenzo Says:

    I agree with Sunil Mahattaya.

    You need a TOUGH and SENSELESS man to defeat a TOUGH and SENSELESS enemy. Religion and morality are NOT going to save you.

    As a British leader he looked after the Brits NOT Endians!! This is what is needed in SL. Unfortunately SL leaders look after Endians at the expense of SLs.

    He starved millions of Endians to death because he needed that food for BRITS during WW2!! Too bad might is right.

    Compare that to SL leaders. $1,000,000 to PALESTINE when people in Rathupaswala go without clean drinking water!!

    Or importing 180,000 MT paddy from TAMIL MADU (to save Tamil Madu farmers) and NOT BUYING paddy from local farmers!!

    General SF (before 2010) was the same. Tough, senseless and immoral according to TAMIL sources and the NEXT US PRESIDENT. That is the PERFECT combination to defeat world’s MOST RUTHLESS TERRORIST group.

    Not just Churchill, STALIN and the US president (who nuke bombed Japanese CIVILIANS) were the same. They all stood by the people who elevated them to power; not by the enemy.

    They NEVER RECONCILED with the enemy!

    But you DON’T NEED such a leader AFTER the war. People rightfully kicked Churchill OUT after the war.
