COMMENT: In a previous post dealing with, among other things, indications that Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands may have deliberately sabotaged the Battle of Arnhem during World War II, we noted Bernhard’s dual role as head of the Dutch “resistance” and spy for the SS and I.G. Farben.

Operation Market Garden–the largest airborne invasion of all time–had been designed to shorten the war by striking a decisive blow behind German lines. Had this battle plan been successful, the war would have been shortened by months and the flight capital program designed by Martin Bormann would have been attenuated. (The entirety of the argument we presented is beyond the scope of this post to present. Please examine our previous discussion at length and detail.)

The deliberate sabotaging of the battle permitted the Reich to realize its plans for underground rebirth and Germany’s postwar economic revival.

Bernhard is best known as the founder of the Bilderberg group, a power elite consortium inextricably linked with the Underground Reich. 

Interestingly and very possibly significantly, another key Bilderberger, Lord Peter Carrington, played a key and very controversial role in the defeat at Arnhem. In charge of a corps of Sherman (M-4 American-built) tanks, Carrington refused to advance in company with American paratroopers to relieve the besieged British 1st Airborne Division.

His failure to advance doomed the 1st Airborne and the entire Allied battle plan. This failure permitted the successful realization of the German flight capital plan. One wonders if that “failure” was simply battlefield incompetence or indicative of fascist sympathy and consequent treason.

Our jaundiced view of Carrington assumes further substance in light of his role as Foreign Secretary at the time of the Falklands War. Governed by a fascist junta, the core of which was the Argentine branch of the infamous P-2 Lodge of Licio Gelli, Argentina invaded the Falkalnd Islands and was subsequently defeated by the British expeditionary force.

Carrington’s stunning “failure” to accurately anticipate the Argentine invasion led to his resignation. (See text excerpts below.)

One wonders if this, too, can be attributed to incompetence or, rather, to complicity with the forces of international fascism and the Underground Reich.

In addition to hisCarrington’s striking failure to act in an intelligent and timely fashion to anticipate the invasion, a BBC broadcast disclosed key aspects of the British military operation shortly before it was to be undertaken. We wonders if this might have been the work of a Fifth Column within the British foreign office, perhaps acting in concert with Carrington?

Peter Carington, 6th Baron Carrington; Wikipedia

EXCERPT: . . . .He also chaired the Bilderberg conferences for several years in the late 1990s, being succeeded in 1999 by Étienne Davignon.[15] . . .

. . . .The MC [Military Cross] was awarded for his part in the capture and holding of a vital bridge in Nijmegen.[7] Although He failed to attempt to reach Arnhem where Tanks support was needed!

The Second World War: Ambitions to Nemesis by Bradley Lightbody; google books; p.233.

EXCERPT: . . . Arnhem was only 30 miles to the north and the jubilant American troops urged an all-out drive by the 30th Corps to relieve the beleaguered British 1st Airborne Division. In a controversial decision, Captain Lord Carrington (later British Foreign Secretary) in command of the lead tanks, refused American entreaties to advance. The British forces insisted on waiting to daylight because the road ahead was narrow and the German strength was unknown.

At Arnhem, the British 1st Airborne Division had fought without respite from the 17 September. By the 21 September, Tiger tanks, impervious to the paratroopers’ light weapons crossed Arnhem bridge and began systematically to destroy every building held by Frost’s battalion. . . . Frost surrendered the bridge at 9 a.m. . . .

Razor’s Edge: The Unofficial History of the Falklands War by Hugo Bicheno; p. 23

EXCERPT: . . . .The greatest surprise for English-speaking readers may be to discover that ideological issues most regard as the defunct relics of a bygone age were – and to a considerable degree remain – alive in Argentina. Terms like ‘Fascist’ and, particularly ‘Liberal’ have lost their historic meaning in a welter of Anglo-American hyperbole, but they must be used and understood with precision when discussing the deep background. The enemy Britain fought in 1982 was the same as 1939-1945, on a smaller scale but no less poisonous. Although nothing short of conquest and prolonged occupation is likely to modify the principles on which a nation organizes itself, one result of the (Falklands) war was to cut another head off the Nazi/Fascist hydra, as worthwhile an outcome as any war could have. . . .

“Fight for the Falklands: Twenty Years” Later; BBC

EXCERPT: . . . . The Foreign Secretary, Lord Carrington, and two junior ministers had resigned by the end of the week. They took the blame for Britain’s poor preparations and plans to decommission HMS Endurance, the navy’s only Antarctic patrol vessel. It was a move which may have lead the Junta to believe the UK had little interest in keeping the Falklands. . . .

“Carrington and Nott Face Humiliation and Fury” by Michael White; The Guardian, 4/3/1982.

EXCERPT: The Government last night rounded off a day of spectacular military and diplomatic humiliation with the public admission by the Foreign Secretary, Lord Carrington, and the Defence Secretary, Mr John Nott, that Argentina had indeed captured Port Stanley while the British Navy lay too far away to prevent it. . . .

. . . .The belated confirmation of the invasion which had apparently eluded ministers – though not the world’s media, American intelligence, or radio hams – came shortly after it had been agreed that the Prime Minister herself would open a three-hour debate on the Falkland crisis in the first Saturday sitting of the Commons since the abortive Suez invasion of 1956. . . .

“Britain’s Approach on the Falklands: Neglect and Hope for the Best”  by Richard Norton-Taylor and Owen Bowcott; The Guardian; 12/27/2012.

. . . . Evidence that the Argentinian junta was adopting an increasingly belligerent approach towards the Falklands was ignored or dismissed as mere rhetoric. . . .

“Battle of Goose Green”; Wikipedia

EXCERPT: . . . . During the planning of the assault of both Darwin and Goose Green, the Battalion Headquarters were listening in to the BBC World Service. The newsreader announced that the 2nd Battalion of the Parachute Regiment were poised and ready to assault Darwin and Goose Green, causing great confusion with the commanding officers of the battalion. Lieutenant Colonel Jones became furious with the level of incompetence and told BBC representative Robert Fox he was going to sue the BBC, Whitehall and the War Cabinet. . . .
