Military Review

Washington considered the possibility of provocation in order to start a war with the USSR

34
The US administration in 1962 considered the possibility of making copies or acquiring Soviet aircraft with the aim of conducting an attack with their participation in the US military base or allied base, reports TASS with reference to declassified materials in the case of the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy.

The report refers to a meeting of 22 March 1962, which discussed "the issue raised by the Attorney General (Robert Kennedy), about the possibility of the United States to manufacture or purchase (copies) of Soviet aircraft." In addition to the Attorney General, President John Kennedy, Secretary of State Dean Rusk, CIA Director John McCone, Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security McGeorge Bundy, and Chairman of the Chief of Staff of the United States General Lyman Lemnitzer participated in the discussion.

The need to obtain copies of Soviet combat aircraft is explained by the following reasons: “There is a possibility that such an aircraft can be used in operations for the introduction of (aviation) misleading the enemy ”, as well as“ for a sudden attack on enemy targets or provocative actions, during which Soviet planes will attack American or friendly targets, which will serve as a pretext for US intervention. ”

Historian Robert Dallek told back in 2001 about Washington’s exploration of the possibility of using copies of Soviet aircraft for such an action in his book “John F. Kennedy. Unfinished life. 1917-1963. In this case, the author argued that this idea did not originate from the Prosecutor General Robert Kennedy, but from the Director of the CIA, McCone.

    For centuries, nothing has changed, we always interfere ..)) Here on this occasion, I got a little bit:

    Centuries with a dozen symbiosis
    Russia and the Western world
    Let's get out of anesthesia
    From captivity of caustic ether

    We are different, and deeply
    We do not need someone else's charter
    You crave with an innocent face
    Stop your lineup here
    Leaving after - only wasteland
    Burning to the bottom of our monastery.

    Hatred sits in you
    Only from the presence of the Slavs
    Face your threat
    Plug memory flaw

        So they use this method constantly, organize a provocation and start a war, but the USSR and today's Russia are not a third-rate state like Vietnam, while they are afraid.

        Wild Turkey saved American colonists from starvation.
        In memory of this event, Americans, in gratitude, kill and eat millions of turkeys every year.
        God forbid us to do something good for these people

          Tricky and insidious, these Americans are striving stealthily, to strike in the back, but they won’t succeed - the nuclear shield of Russia has been forging for so many years. Let them just rock the boat.

    Hmm .... so Washington is still considering the possibility of provocations against Russia. As long as the US exists, there will be provocations until then. Conclusion! Bang on the states, all available missile "state".
