TO THE MEN AND WOMEN OF OPERATION HALYARD
On behalf of the men and women of the United States Air Force, I extend our congratulations and admiration to the survivors of "Operation Halyard" and their rescuers.
The courage of the Fifteenth Air Force aircrews who fought their way through fierce Axis opposition to destroy the Ploesti oil fields is a significant part of our Air Force heritage.
We also join you in extending appreciation to your brave rescuers, who risked their lives to provide refuge and medical care to you, and eventually, to return you to Allied lines.MERRILL A. McPEAK, General, USAF Chief of Staff
The above tribute concerns one of the greatest, if not the greatest, rescue operation in WW2; the Chetnik General Draza Mihailovic saved over 500 American pilots shot down over Yugoslavia. A whole Serbian village was destroyed because the inhabitants didn't yield under torture and disclose to the Nazis where the pilots were hidden. In his "congratulations and admiration" gen. McPeak doesn't mention who rescued the pilots, because, God forbid, he would have had to praise the Serbs. General Draza Mihailovic and his Chetniks are now called "Nazi puppets." By the way, America honoured General Draza Mihailovic, but that was in 1947, over fifty years ago, and who would remember today?
If those facts are unimportant and can be completely reversed just because fifty years have passed, it only proves that history has no importance. The world masses, not involved, simply don't give a damn. The old saying 'truth wills out' is no longer valid. The truth will always belong to the media, meaning to the stronger. I compare the lies going on now to the medical experiments in Auschwitz; there, they were done on human flesh and here, on human minds. The PR agents and their bosses treat the world like a planetary laboratory where they test how many lies can efficiently be spread. This is Darwinian order inflated to a monstrous extreme. Unbelievable how far the abuse can go without infringing the rules of democracy; the NWO doesn't need to repress protests, but can afford to ignore them. In German it's called 'todtschweigen' (silenced to death). What's the lesson? The only pathway for survival in the New Age of Barbarism lies in the fight for power, not for "truth" or "justice."Back to the index of the Vagabond
