Military Review

American analyst told how humanity will die

23
The famous American military analyst Daniel Ellsberg in his new work “Doomsday Machine: Confession of a Nuclear Strategist” spoke about the possible causes of the Third World War and its consequences, reports RIA News with reference to the San Francisco Chronicle.




“A full-blown conflict can be provoked by a failure in electronics, a false report in the media or an ill-advised order, the expert believes. For example, fake news about the terrorist attack in Washington or Moscow will be a sufficient basis for a nuclear confrontation, ”the expert writes.

At the same time, he stresses that "the leading military powers have a much more crushing potential than is necessary - in a few days a full-scale nuclear conflict will destroy millions of people and lead to the death of mankind."

The author’s fears also reinforce the attitude of the American authorities to arms mass destruction.

We are the only country in the world that believes it has won the war thanks to weapons of mass destruction, incendiary and atomic bombs. We are the only ones who believe that all this was justified. Such an attitude towards weapons is very dangerous
he notes.

At the end of his book, Ellsberg makes several recommendations to prevent collapse: "The United States should not unleash a war and be the first to use nuclear weapons; they should also abolish the ground component of the nuclear triad." He is not sure that such changes will occur, but this initiative should be lobbied.

With nuclear weapons, jokes are bad. And this applies not only to the "crazy" leaders of third world countries,
concludes the author.

American military analyst Daniel Ellsberg in 1959, he began working at the RAND research center, where he worked on US nuclear strategy issues. He worked on a secret report on US-Vietnamese relations, known as the "Pentagon Papers."

Being critical of US actions in Vietnam, in 1971, he gave a report to The New York Times. He faced 115 years in prison, but in the end, Ellsberg was acquitted. The analyst supports the activities of Julian Assange and the site WikiLeaks.

      “We are the only country in the world that believes that it won the war thanks to WMD, incendiary and atomic bombs. We are the only ones who believe that all this was justified. This attitude to weapons is very dangerous
      he notes.

        The struggle for water will be worse than the oil showdown. As for the rest, only nuclear parity is holding back the global war, so a world with nuclear weapons is better than a 100 percent war without it.

        There are not many of them. For the most part, they are weighed down by more pressing, in their opinion, “problems”.

        if in a global nuclear war it’s fast.

        Who is lucky. In the days of our youth, there was a joke: "The biggest trick that the USSR can make against the USA is to blow up all its ABs on its own territory. Americans will suffer longer." And recently there was a discussion at the HE, during which the idea was expressed that the available warheads were completely insufficient for the guaranteed destruction of humanity. We'll have to throw ourselves in bayonets as you shoot the last store. Disarmament ... One hope for Kim.

      But here he says sound things, it does not matter who starts, it is important that after the start of such a global war, there simply will not be planet Earth. request
      We are the only country in the world that believes that it won the war thanks to WMD, incendiary and atomic bombs. We are the only ones who believe that all this was justified. This attitude to weapons is very dangerous.

        Hello hi In this article I did not find a single, new thought, for which it would be worth writing
        “A full-scale conflict can provoke a failure in the electronics, a false message in the media or a rash order, the expert said. For example, fake news of the terrorist attack in Washington or Moscow will become a sufficient basis for a nuclear confrontation, ”the expert writes.
        solar flares, a soldier who has gone mad, or the actions of aliens - I’ll add from myself. This is not serious for such a serious topic.

    We (people) think that the most developed, etc. on the ground. And all the rest, flora and fauna, roughly speaking nothing.

    And characteristically, some earthworm thinks the same.

    People! .. Don’t take much on yourself. Yeah.

    And I am constantly distracted, in all such matters, by one thought.
    Here, the American theoretician-strategist-expert, starting from the year I was born, has been working for the States. At the same time, it works somehow strange, either a spy, or a saboteur, or someone else. Supports Assange and Wikiquix.
    For us, of course, this is a balm for the soul, so, they say, they have honest honest people there.
    And how then to be with ours - well, with those who support Navalny, all kinds of "curly-haired" ones and, in return, generally frog-like. On the other hand, they are also considered to be the "mind, honor and conscience" of Russia.
    Somehow everything is polarized with us - the “warriors of the light, the son of Ukraine" (I had a chance to hear the song of Ukraradio, he fell on the motive of the "Officers" of Gazmanov. Oleg is not going to sue, for plagiarism, no?) - but they oppose im - "warriors of darkness", of course. In Warriors, on the T-14 and Su-35.
    Only one paradox - IG (Daesh) - prohibited in the Russian Federation - are the same barmalei that one side that the other (basically at least). The question is where do we stick request this third party? like BE, it is not embedded in the theory of dualism, but in a system of multiphase systems. in order to optimize, reluctance to install.
    Omit, modestly, who feeds this very, third party, otherwise everything will become transparent.
    Etc.
    Something is amiss ... in the kingdom of Denmark.
    Etc.
    Here we are, so they took, and elegantly plastered the American intelligence MEDOM. Smeared with honey, and sniff - .... well, everything is clear. And who will smell most of all, guess?
    Everything is more wonderful and wonderful.

    Who, if not Americans, can guess how humanity will die. And if the president is still in power, who in his childhood did not play enough toys and crazy politicians, then everything is possible.

    leading military powers have much more devastating potential than necessary - in a few days a full-scale nuclear conflict will destroy millions of people and lead to the death of humanity

    What the analyst means by the death of humanity is not very clear. The death of even a billion will not lead to the physical disappearance of people, and the exchange of blows between Russia and NATO will not even lead to such losses.

    God forbid if the people responsible in our country for the red button adhere to the same opinion as this stupid person about the death of mankind and a nuclear winter. Then in which case we definitely have a khan. And these articles are custom-made in order to instill in the top leadership of our country the fear of making a decision on both a retaliatory and a preventive strike. I think that they, and we also have a more adequate guide, but it is advisable that these articles have a better effect on them. Who does not agree, I advise you to watch a program about nuclear war for rent.

    concludes the author.
    After these lines, the whole seemingly quite reasonable point of view of this patient turns into a zilch! Is he a nuthouse doctor? Crazy ball only USA / Israel, I do not share them, this is the same shnyaga (I'm not talking about Jews, I'm talking about Zionists).

    The level of American rhetoric at the international level indicates a very deplorable level of education and culture.
    Based on this, it can be assumed that there are those who do not fully understand the consequences of a nuclear conflict.
    Constant flaunting and brandishing a nuclear baton in front of the DPRK greatly lowers the threshold of fear of conflict, and the narrowness of thinking gives confidence ..... they say everything will be OK ...
