The Planning of Nuclear War against the Soviet Union Started in 1945

As early as September 1945, “the Pentagon had envisaged blowing up the Soviet Union  with a coordinated attack directed against major urban areas.

All major cities of the Soviet Union were included in the list of targets. The table below categorizes each city in terms of area in square miles and the number of atomic bombs required to destroy the selected urban areas.

Six atomic bombs were to be used to destroy each of the larger cities including Moscow, Leningrad, Tashkent, Kiev, Kharkov, Odessa.

The Pentagon estimated that a total of 204 bombs would be required to Wipe the Soviet Union off the Map. The targets for a nuclear attack consisted of sixty-six major cities.

It is worth noting that secret documents outlining this diabolical military agenda had been released in September 1945, barely one month after the bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki (6 and 9 August, 1945) and two years before the onset of the Cold War (1947).

Socialism, Land and Banking: 2017 compared to 1917 By Michael Hudson

21 October 2017 — Michael Hudson

An article written for the hundredth anniversary of the Russian Revolution, to be read in Beijing today.

Socialism a century ago seemed to be the wave of the future. There were various schools of socialism, but the common ideal was to guarantee support for basic needs, and for state ownership to free society from landlords, predatory banking and monopolies. In the West these hopes are now much further away than they seemed in 1917. Land and natural resources, basic infrastructure monopolies, health care and pensions have been increasingly privatized and financialized.

On January 20, 1980, President Carter announced that “[u]nless the Soviets withdraw their troops within a month from Afghanistan,” that the US would boycott the Olympic games that year in Moscow. The media, including the Washington Post’s Robert G. Kaiser, supported the boycott, arguing, “the collapse of this Olympiad would send a genuine shock through Soviet society,” though CIA Director Adm. Stansfield Turner warned that such a stunt would backfire. Continue reading

NATO’s Genocidal Role: The Most Perfidious Tool of Repression in the History of Humanity

by Fidel Castro

This brutal military alliance has become the most perfidious tool of repression known in the history of humanity.

NATO assumed this global repressive role as soon as the USSR, which had served as the U.S. pretext for its creation, disappeared. Its criminal purpose became obvious in Serbia, a country of Slavic origin, whose people heroically struggled against the Nazis during World War II.

In March of 1999, when the countries of this nefarious organization, in its efforts to break up Yugoslavia after the death of Josip Broz Tito, sent in troops to support the Kosovar secessionists, they met with strong resistance on the part of the country’s experienced forces which remained intact.
