Imperial German Territorial Aspirations - Latin America



In October 1941, Roosevelt claimed to have a Nazi map of German plans for South America, a map said by Nicholas John Cull to have been forged by the man named Intrepid, William Stephenson, the SIS boss in New York. Roosevelt used to convince Americans of German villainy. During President Roosevelt's 27 October 1941 Navy Day radio address he discussed the German submarine attack of 11 October on the USS Kearny. During that speech, Roosevelt said "Hitler has often protested that his plans for conquest do not extend across the Atlantic Ocean. But his submarines and raiders prove otherwise. So does the entire design of his new world order. For example, I have in my possession a secret map made in Germany by Hitler's government -- by the planners of the new world order. It is a map of South America and a part of Central America, as Hitler proposes to reorganize it. Today in this area there are 14 separate countries. The geographical experts of Berlin, however, have ruthlessly obliterated all existing boundary lines; and have divided South America into five vassal states, bringing the whole continent under their domination. And they have also so arranged it that the territory of one of these new puppet states includes the Republic of Panama and our great life line - the Panama Canal. That is his plan. It will never go into effect. This map makes clear the Nazi design not only against South America but against the United States itself."
