Pentagon wanted to nuke USSR and China in the 1960s

Between 1968 and 1971, the Phoenix Program was responsible for torturing and killing more than twenty thousand people, many of whom had nothing to do with terrorism. The CIA conducted these essentially diabolical operations “on several continents.”

Whenever a Neocon or Zionist starts saying that Iran is the biggest threat in the world, then you can deduce that you are in the presence of a propagandist or useful idiot. Iran doesn’t have nuclear weapons and abides by the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The United States, however, has carpet-bombed several countries over the past sixty-years and destabilized much of the Middle East, thanks to our friendly neighbor, Israel. We destroyed entire cities in Japan in the summer of 1945, and we were about to repeat the same experiment in the 1960s in the USSR and China.

“Plans for a nuclear war devised by the US Army in the 1960s considered decimating the Soviet Union and China by destroying their industrial potential and wiping out the bulk of their populations, newly declassified documents show.

“A review of the US general nuclear war plan by the Joint Staff in 1964, which was recently published by George Washington University’s National Security Archive project, shows how the Pentagon studied options ‘to destroy the USSR and China as viable societies.’”[1]

The US wanted to destroy “70 percent of its industrial floor space during pre-emptive and retaliatory nuclear strikes. A similar goal is tweaked for China, given its more agrarian-based economy at the time. According to the plan, the US would wipe out 30 major Chinese cities, killing off 30 percent of the nation’s urban population and halving its industrial capabilities. The successful execution of the large-scale nuclear assault would ensure that China ‘would no longer be a viable nation.’”

The target was primarily “the population,” which is the soul of the nation. No matter how you slice it, this was a diabolical plan which could only come from a diabolical mind. And this isn’t an isolated case. The United States has concducted those hellish operations throughout much of the world.

We know by now that the CIA was largely responsible for the Phoenix Program in Vietnam. In Mainstreaming Torture: Ethical Approaches in the Post-9/11 United States, published by Oxford University Press, eminent scholar Rebecca Gordon writes documented:

“The Phoenix Program, implemented during the Vietnam War by U.S. armed forces and the CIA, involved the torture and deaths of tens of thousands of Vietnamese, as part of the U.S. counterinsurgency project designed to break the will of the Viet Cong. In the testimony before Congress, military intelligence officer K. Milton Osborne provided some details of the methods used.

“The use of the insertion of the 6-inch dowel into the 6-inch canal of one of my detainees’ ears and the tapping through the brain until he dies. The starving to death of a Vietnamese woman who was suspected of being part of the local political education cadre in one of the local villages. They simply starved her to death in one of the hooches at that very counterintelligence headquarters.

“There were other methods of operation which they used for interrogation, such as the use of electronic gear such as sealed telephone attached to the genitals of both the men and women’s vagina and the man’s testicles, and wind the mechanism and create an electrical charge and shock them into submission.”[2]

Between 1968 and 1971, the Phoenix Program was responsible for torturing and killing more than twenty thousand people, many of whom had nothing to do with terrorism. These were not isolated cases. Gordon documents that the CIA conducted these essentially diabolical operations “on several continents.”[3]

The CIA again was largely responsible for the 1953 coup in Iran, which literally overthrew a democratically elected president by the name of Mohammad Mosaddegh.[4] The CIA has also conducted covert operations in places like Guatemala.[5]

So there is basically no place on earth the United States of America hasn’t touched. Now the Israeli regime and US officials want to convince us all that Iran is the biggest threat in the world!

  1. B@stards! They pushed their “rotten” democracy to many countries. Killed millions of people. Devastate, rape and steal – their motto. Sucking the resourses. Reagan said the USSR was the Evil Empire. The real Evil Empire was USA. Fortunately or unfortunately never been under attack, thanks to geographical position on the globus. Only western criminals like USA and GB could carry out the plan to attack the country that was their partner during WW2. Filthy capitalistic betrayers. USSR was much more good and sincere, than the Western jackals. So many britains and americans died in the toy-wars of their politics… Alas… Thanks God that Soviet scientists and spies, and western scientists helped USSR to get the nuclear weapons asap. This is why Churchill and Roosevelt tried to boast to Stalin about their super secret weapons, but Stalin showed that he doesn’t understand what they were boasting about. Because Joseph knew it all and USSR had great success in A-bomb research and producing.
    If it was no so, f@cking american polititians would make their Satan plan without hesitation and kill millions of Soviet people, and many other.

    • Most of the Bolsheviks had been purged or sent into obscurity by the time the US was drawing up its first plans to use strategic nuclear weapons against the Soviet Union, so the ratio would have been along the lines of 1 to 10 million innocent Russians killed for every important Bolshevik leader eliminated.
