World War I
World War I was fought for two principal reasons: the land and wealth of Germany, and the land and wealth of Russia. The land had been ordered by God to be given to the people forever, but had been taken by the rulers. The establishment wished to possess this land and wealth of the Tzar of Russia, and the land and wealth of the Kaiser of Germany.
The first part, capturing the wealth of the Tzar, was realized. To prevent the Tzar of Russia, or any member of his family from ever reclaiming this wealth, they were shot. All of his land and property and that of his nobles, plus that of the Russian Eastern Orthodox Church, of which he was head, was seized. This together constituted the total land area of Russia. A prize indeed! No wonder the world bankers were so eager to finance the communist revolution.
The second reason, the attempt to seize the German land, was only partially successful.
