An article on Sputnik by Ekaterina Blinova, http://sputniknews.com/politics/20150815/1025789574.html  , provides a history of US and British plans to destroy the Soviet Union with nuclear weapons in the early post-World War II years before the Soviets got the bomb and prior to President John F. Kennedy reining in the plans to use nuclear weapons against Soviet civilian populations. If truth be known, the Cold War was entirely a Washington creation.
The military/security complex, against which President Dwight Eisenhower warned the American people to no avail, has found that its profits cannot survive the end of the Cold War and has orchestrated its resumption. Washington has revived its plans for surprise nuclear attack on Russia and this time on China as well. These plans are known and have destroyed the trust among nuclear powers, leading to an even more dangerous situation than existed during Cold War I.
The American people are not politically competent, and they are easily brainwashed by Washington’s propaganda. It has only taken two years for Washington’s demonization of Russia to convince hapless Americans that Russia is the Number One Threat to the United States. This unbelievable hogwash is constantly broadcast by the presstitute media and is now
believed by a majority of the American Sheeple.
Armageddon will be the consequence.
