I have uploaded this newly declassified (Oct 2015) file to the main server. It is more than a glimpse of the cold war's end and an indicator of how deep the politics of alarmism can run.

I only have one question, why so long to declassify the doc even redacted?


Hot stuff.

Reading now complete.


I guess now that I was right to think the involved governments were flirting with disaster in the 1980s.

I get a little freaked out when I hear bulloney about "survivable Nuclear war" coming out of policy think tanks and elected/selected officials.

A person I know inside USA spook house told me about '88 that "We really scared the shit out of the bolsheviks..." I guess so, huh?


Jeez, didn't everyone know by 1970 that there is no survival of global nuclear destruction? Except the 0.1% I bet.

Only mutual suicide to save "the world" from capitalism or communism depending on which puppet government was pontificating.

I tired of that crap before some I guess.


MX and "star wars" dreams of dominance....paranoid fear of the enemy as product of the "Cold War" no mistake nor accident.

The DOD and contractors loved the profits and thrived on the fear of people.

Certainly the opposing power centers were also using fear to their own purposes.

No wonder William Casey was so bellicose in that time. POTUS Ronnie was asleep I supposed then.

A tool, just a tool like Nixon and LBJ.


Peace and hope are dangerous things to some jerks.

To Protect and or Defend are the only valid excuses for violence global or local.


How can one take the profit/control motive out of wars great and small?

I canna think of anything else that could stop the madness - - - except love for one another.

All could survive and thrive in that case.


Or if that is too strong for your personal world view,

how about just caring about those around you,

not just members of your family and extended family?


Imagine that.
