This is a work in progress you are welcome to watch as it unfolds and develops.  This article is intended to re-teach americans and the world that our struggle against white supremacy has not ended.  White supremacist leaders after world war two focused on diverting attentions to Islamic countries, Asia, Israel, Africa, The Middle East,  Bosnia-Herzegovina Mexico, the United States and central and South America.

1912 The SS Koombana was a late Edwardian-era passenger, cargo and mail carrying steamship. From March 1909 to March 1912, she operated coastal liner services between Fremantle, Western Australia and various ports in the northwest of that State. She is best known for disappearing at an unknown location north of Port Hedland, Western Australia, during a tropical cyclone on 20 March 1912, killing 74 passengers and 76 crew; in total, 150 people died

1912  In the early morning of 15 April 1912 RMS Titanic  was a British passenger ocean liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean about 100 miles off the coast of Nova Scotia near Halifax during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. Of the 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. The largest and most safest passenger ship afloat at the time it entered service, the RMS Titanic was the second of three Olympic class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line, and was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.

World War I  the First World War, the Great War, or the War to End All Wars, was a global war originating in Europe that lasted from 1914 to 1918 and took place in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Pacific Islands, China, Indian Ocean, and off the coast of South and North America

On 28 June 1914, Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand visited the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo. A group of six assassins (Cvjetko Popović, Gavrilo Princip, Muhamed Mehmedbašić, Nedeljko Čabrinović, Trifko Grabež, Vaso Čubrilović) from the Yugoslavist group Mlada Bosna, supplied by  (the Serbian Black Hand), had gathered on the street where the Archduke’s motorcade would pass, with the intention of assassinating him.

Čabrinović threw a grenade at the car, but missed. Some nearby were injured by the blast, but Ferdinand’s convoy carried on.

The other assassins failed to act as the cars drove past them.

About an hour later, when Ferdinand was returning from a visit at the Sarajevo Hospital with those wounded in the assassination attempt, the convoy was thenn diverted and turned into a street where assassins killed Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie.

The reaction among the people in Austria was mild, almost indifferent. As historian Zbyněk Zeman later wrote, “the event almost failed to make any impression whatsoever. On Sunday and Monday (28 and 29 June), the crowds in Vienna listened to music and drank wine, as if nothing had happened.”

The Emperor Franz Joseph was profoundly shocked and upset. The Austro-Hungarian authorities encouraged the subsequent anti-Serb riots in Sarajevo, in which Bosnian Croats and Bosniaks killed two Bosnian Serbs and damaged numerous Serb-owned buildings.

Violent actions against ethnic Serbs were also organized outside Sarajevo, in other cities in Austro-Hungarian-controlled Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia.

Austro-Hungarian authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina imprisoned and extradited approximately 5,500 prominent Serbs, 700 to 2,200 of whom died in prison.

A further 460 Serbs were sentenced to death. A predominantly Bosniak special militia known as the Schutzkorps was established and carried out the persecution of Serbs

1915 – The sinking of the Cunard ocean liner RMS Lusitania occurred on Friday, 7 May 1915 during the First World War, as Germany waged submarine warfare against the United Kingdom who had implemented a naval blockade of Germany. The ship was identified and torpedoed by the German U-boat U-20 and sank in 18 minutes

This may be the only photograph of the remnants of blast itself reportedly taken 15-20 seconds after the explosion in good timing. Indications are that it was taken at Bedford Basin, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, from approximately a mile’s distance looking southeast. The Photographer is unknown. Although the National Library and Archives Canada description estimates the distance from the explosion as 21 km/13 mi, the actual location and distance have never been firmly established. The height of the blast at its peak was measured at 3,600 metres (11,811 feet or 2.25 miles) on a sextant by Captain W. M. A. Campbell of the Canadian merchant ship, Acadian, approximately 28 km (18 mi) from the harbour approaches. This measurement is consistent with the time-frame of 15-20 seconds at a distance of 1 mile. Furthermore, documented photographic evidence from the Ron Fralick Collection (photo reference numbers: 16,274 & 16,275 – Maritime Museum of the Atlantic) clearly shows the size, shape and direction of the blast cloud as it passed by York Redoubt and indicates that the original photograph was probably taken from Bedford Basin. In Canada – from the David Millar Collection (NLAC). In the U.S. – National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) Reference #165-WW-158A-15. Original source: Underwood & Underwood. Print only – no negative available. Reproduction service has been withdrawn in Canada (NLAC). In the U.S., reproductions are available from NARA.

1917 –  Mont-Blanc and the Halifax Explosion – On 6 December at Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada, was devastated by the huge explosion of the fully laden French munitions ship Mont-Blanc. She collided with the Norwegian ship Imo in The Narrows part of Halifax Harbour.  (The Mont-Blanc’s) 40-man crew all escaped but minutes later she exploded. About 2,000 people on the shore and in Halifax were killed by the explosion, falling debris, fires or collapsing buildings, and over 9,000 were injured, particularly by flying glass. It is still the largest accidental explosion of conventional weapons to date France and Canada were allies in World War I.

It led to the loss of 136 lives, according to the passenger counts and the officers; most sources frequently list the death toll as 138. There were 150 passengers and 12 crew members.

While most of the crew and passengers were rescued an additional three days passed before a rescue of the trapped prisoners in the cargo holds could begin. Only 28 of the over 700 prisoners were found alive with one of the 28 rescued later dying.

The attack on Pearl Harbor began at roughly 7:53 that morning. At 8:05 a.m. the battleship USS Arizona erupted in a massive explosion ignited by a bomb that detonated in its forward magazines.  Minutes later, the ships lined up at Battleship Row were also bombed. Japanese attackers had achieved a stunning tactical surprise. The shock of that disaster still reverberates.

1947 The United States – Grandcamp – On 16 April 1947, #the French-registered” Liberty ship caught fire and exploded dockside while being loaded with ammonium nitrate at Texas City, Texas. In what came to be called the Texas City Disaster an estimated 581 people, including all of the ship’s crew and 28 firefighters, were lost and about 5,000 injured.

1948 – China Kiangya – The passenger steamship packed with refugees fleeing the People’s Liberation Army, blows up and sinks in the mouth of the Huangpu River 50 mi (80 km) south of Shanghai on 4 December 1948.   The suspected cause of the explosion was Kiangya hitting a mine left behind by the Imperial Japanese Navy in World War II.  The exact death toll is unknown, however, it is thought that between 2,750 and 3,920 died with 700–1,000 survivors being picked up by other vessels.

The Hobson crossed the carrier’s bow and was promptly struck amidships. The force of the collision rolled the destroyer-minesweeper over, breaking her in two. USS Rodman (DD-456) and the Wasp rescued many survivors but the ship and 176 of her crew were lost.
