IF YOU ARE LIKE ME, You think Winston Churchill was a great man who saved the world from tyrants. He was the last lion of the British Empire. The truth, I have learned, is different.

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill 

"History will be kind to me because I will write it," he quipped. Indeed he did write it. Winston Churchill made history. Well, well, yes he did.

Unfortunately, for Churchill, others can write too. And others can remember. Did you know that everyone wanted to avoid the Great War? "Everyone" includes the French, the Russians, the Austro-Hungarians, the Ottomans, the British, and the Germans. The Kaiser did not start the war. That is war propaganda. Read. The Americans were happy to manufacture and sell weapons to the belligerents. Americans — like Lenin and Trotsky — wanted to remake the world.

Like all empires, the British Empire was one day fated to fall. Once Jefferson’s idea, “All men are created equal,” was wedded to President Wilson’s idea, that all peoples are entitled to “self-determination,” the fate of the Western empires was sealed. Wilson’s secretary of state, Robert Lansing, saw it coming: “The phrase [self-determination] is simply loaded with dynamite. It will raise hopes which can never be realized.… What a calamity that the phrase was ever uttered! What misery it will cause!”

The Great War destroyed the world. Rather than being the "war to end all wars" it was the beginning of the incessant wars we have had from 1914 to the present. Today, "terrorism" with mass murder erupts daily in every place in the world and humanity faces extermination by thermonuclear war. Winston Churchill loved war. He relished war. 

Churchill was exhilarated. Six months later, after the first Battle of Ypres, with tens of thousands of British soldiers in their graves, he would say to Violet Asquith, “I think a curse should rest on me — because I am so happy. I know this war is smashing and shattering the lives of thousands every moment and yet — I cannot help it — I enjoy every second.”
Buchanan: Churchill, Hitler, and "The Unnecessary War"

Without attempting to place all the blame on one person, it can be said that without Winston Churchill, Great Britain would not have entered the continental war (Great Britain stayed out of the Franco-Prussian War in 1870) and none of the things that have happened since the British Army went to France in 1914 would have happened. 

There would have been no Lenin, no Trotsky, no communist revolution in Russia, no Stalin, no Hitler, no World War II, no Cold War, no State of Israel, no Middle East quagmire, no Korean War, No War in Vietnam and no American hegemon threatening everyone today. 

Winston Churchill was involved in the Russian Civil War, the dismemberment of the German, Autro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires, World War II, the establishment of the State of Israel, and the Cold War. Churchill coined the phrase "the Iron Curtain", stabbing his wartime Soviet ally in the back to get a new war started.

Americans made lots of money. They made lots of money in both world wars and all the wars since. The United States would not be the garrison state it is today without those wars.

Germany would be the dominant country in Europe that it is today. France would be a close second. There would still be a Great Britain. Russia would industrialized, peaceful and prosperous. Russia would be a beacon to the world. It is becoming that. The United States would be a much better place for all Americans than it is now as it enters a new Gilded Age for élite Americans.

Those things don't even touch on the Winston Churchill whom Franklin Delano Roosevelt thought was a profligate drunken bum. There is much more, but let's concentrate on only one thing for now and wonder how everyone decided to make Churchill great.

Winston Churchill engineered one disaster after another throughout his entire life.

The Great War was fought for nothing and it led directly to unimaginable harm that continues to this day. We have a war of all against all that is spreading. Think about that. Grind your teeth. Blame Woodrow Wilson. Burn your Winston Churchill fan club card.
