Corruption & Conspiracy

LRB · Chalmers Johnson: The Looting of Asia

Two very interesting books that have recently been published. One is Gold Warriors: America’s Secret Recovery of Yamashita’s Gold by Sterling Seagrave and Peggy Seagrave.

The other is The Nazi Hydra in America: Suppressed History of a Century By Glen Yeadon.

Both these books are about corruption and conspiracy – at a global level. The basic outline is: –

  1. Japan looted huge amounts of gold from Korea, Burma, Manchuria (in China) between 1925-1945.
  2. Some of that gold was shipped to Japan. A lot of it was buried – yes, that is right, buried in Philippines.
  3. American generals, (MacArthur being a major figure), Presidents, bureaucrats (Dulles, etc.) covered these gold hoard – and never publicly revealed or accounted for.
  4. This gold was used for illegal purposes – likes arms aid to Nicaragua, Iran-Contra scandal, etc.
  5. Many Japanese politicians, bureaucrats – and the royal family were involved.

What is behind this? The usual suspects – Loot, Colonialism, War, Hegemony …
