During Harry Truman’s preemptive war against nonbelligerent, nonthreatening North Korea, General Douglas MacArthur requested authorization to nuke 26 targets in China after the PLA sent troops to aid Pyongyang combat US aggression.
In 1961, General Curtis LeMay called for nuking Soviet Russia with thousands of preemptively launched missiles.
At the time, he claimed that retaliation against major US cities — destroying them and incinerating their people — was a small price to pay.
Around the same time during a national security council meeting, General Lyman Lemnitzer called for the same thing.
The 1962 Cuban missile crisis risked possible nuclear war.
In 2002, a Havana US/Russia/Cuba summit disclosed the close call for the first time.
Ominously possible nuclear war was avoided because Soviet submarine captain, Vasily Arkhipov, countermanded an order to fire nuclear torpedos when US destroyers attacked Russian submarines near JFK’s “quarantine” line.
After resolution of the missiles of October crisis, Kennedy said that while it was ongoing, he “never had the slightest intention of” attacking or invading Cuba.
Separately, he called for eliminating nukes and ending the Cold War, along with a “general and complete disarmament.”
Weeks before his November 22, 1963 assassination by CIA hitmen, he signed National Security Action Memorandum 263.
It called for removing 1,000 US troops from Vietnam by year’s end and the remainder by December 1965.
During congressional testimony in 1982, founder of the Pentagon’s nuclear navy, Admiral Hyman Rickover, said the following:
“I would sink” all nuclear-powered ships.
“I am not proud of the part I played in it.”
“That’s why I am such a great exponent of stopping this whole nonsense of war.”
“(A)ttempts to limit war have always failed.”
“The lesson of history is when a war starts, every nation will ultimately use whatever weapons it has available” to win.
“Every time you produce radiation, you produce something that has a certain half-life, in some cases for billions of years.”
“I think the human race is going to wreck itself, and it is important that we get control of this horrible force and try to eliminate it.”
In the 1964 Hollywood film, titled “Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying And Love the Bomb,” George C. Scott played the role of a Strategic Air Command (SAC) general, in one scene saying the following:
“If…we immediately launch an all-out and coordinated (nuclear) attack on all (Russian) airfields and missile bases, we’d stand a damn good chance of catching them with their pants down.”
“I’m not saying we wouldn’t get our hair mussed, but I do say no more than 10-20 million (Americans) killed, tops, depending on the breaks.”
In 1969, then-US naval operations chief, Admiral Thomas Moorer, called for striking North Vietnam with nukes to turn around a lost war.
In 1979, Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, was falsely told that 2,200 Soviet Russian missiles were within minutes of striking the US mainland.
It was a training exercise, erroneously loaded into SAC’s early warning computer system.
In 1980, crazed advocates for war with nukes, Colin Gray and Keith Payne, told then-presidential aspirant, Ronald Reagan, that nuclear war victory was possible against Soviet Russia.
In May 2000, the Pentagon’s Joint Vision 2020 called for “full spectrum dominance” over all land, surface and sub-surface sea, air, space, electromagnetic spectrum and information systems with enough overwhelming power to fight and win global wars against any adversary, including with nuclear weapons preemptively.
From the Bush/Cheney regime to lunatics in charge of the Washington asylum today, official US policy calls for preemptive use of nukes against invented enemies — with Russia, China and Iran in mind.
On Saturday, 99-year-old Henry Kissinger told the WSJ the following:
“We are at the edge of war with Russia and China on issues which we partly (sic) created, without any concept of how this is going to end or what it’s supposed to lead to.”
“Could the US (engage in relations with them) by triangulati(on), as during the Nixon years?”
“You can’t just now say we’re going to split them off and turn them against each other.”
“All you can do is not to accelerate tensions to” prevent the risk of possible catastrophic nuclear war.
Kissinger believes that hegemon USA is “on (the) brink” of war with Russia and China over Ukraine and Taiwan respectively.
Earlier in response to the fake Biden’s remark about intervening militarily if China seeks to reunite Taiwan with the mainland by force, Kissinger said the following:
It’s crucial for the world’s two largest economies to avoid direct confrontation to prevent the risk of global war, adding:
US policymakers “should not by subterfuge or by a gradual process develop something of a ‘two-China’ solution.”
Kissinger accompanied Richard Nixon on his historic 1972 China visit — what led to US recognition of One China.
The policy stood the test of time for a near-half century until the Trump and Biden regimes virtually abolished it.
At this time, hegemon USA’s hostility toward China and Russia risks possible nuclear war on two fronts.
If launched by the empire of lies against one or both invented enemies, it’ll be war to end all future ones.
The risk of destroying planet earth and all its life forms will be ominously high.
