Thanks for posting this question as it's been bothering me for awhile as well. At the DC this summer the DO who gave the public talk said that"bible study shows that the Anglo American dual world power will still be ruling when armageddon comes". I looked at my wife with disbelief. What an ambitious statement. What that really says is: We feel the English speaking peoples will still run the show here on earth when armageddon comes". Zeitgeist at its best. They have known nothing else in their recollections and so nothing else could be possible.
Great Britain and the United States while cooperating together after the war of 1812;the last shooting war between the two I believe;(correct me if I'm wrong), have NEVER ruled as a dual, matching, power. England's star was well on the decline at the start of WWI, and certainly by the close of WW2 there was only one nation that could effectively crush the economy of any nation in the world with its navy and of course its nuclear weapons program, and it wasn't Great Britain. With monumental effort Great Britain did wrest the Falklands from the Argentinians, but that would be the end. England did enjoy centuries worth of European diplomatic history and thus an advanced relationship with those powers, and the U.S. did not, yet that does not indicate that these two countries ruled the world together then nor now. Even though Great Britain did assist the U.S. in achieving some political and diplomatic legitimacy with the rest of Europe. Her foreign office connections due to its long history would have served the U.S. well in fleshing out its own fledgling State Department, and its intelligence apparatus could have assisted the U.S. as well, but not to the point of equality. The WTBS(BS is guess what?) has written revisionist history at best. They have used the same practises in assigning more than needed importance to the so called WWI, when evidence exists to indicate that there were other "world wars" prior to this.
When Nato was formed in 1949 the U.S. took the primary role, not Great Britain, although later on England would be responsible for the northern army group area of West Germany. England is a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council along with the U.S., France, Russia, and China, but again this does not assign her an equal role with the United States as a world power whether she has achieved nuclear weapon capability or not.
I agree with the posts before that suggest that recent memory and not the facts are what the WTBS use to their advantage. Fred Franz was not a scholar and certainly did not use an investigative or scholarly approach to his theories and writings. He relied on his pseudo intellectual mumbo jumbo to complicate his writing in a time when the availability of the works he and his writers quoted or mis quoted was not there. Now that is not the case, we can look at the raw data ourselves and can even communicate with the authors to get past the "maybeline". (Apologies to the ladies who use it). This is the source of their fear of higher education. This will undo their current doctrine and their fallacious so called logic.
Thanks again for your post, and thanks to all for reading and most of all, thanks for being here.
Have a great day!!
