Plans for the destruction of the USSR, which was not destined to come true

3
After the end of the Second World War, the United States began to carry out plans to destroy its new main geopolitical adversary. Inspired by the results of the nuclear bombing of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Americans developed a scenario for a crushing blow to the USSR. The blows were supposed to be 66 of the largest cities in the country.


The US military calculated how many nuclear bombs are needed for a particular city, depending on its area and building density.
For the destruction of the six largest settlements of the Soviet Union, the Americans would need six nuclear bombs. In total, in order to wipe out the entire country from the face of the earth, the US needed 204 nuclear charges.

The leadership of the USSR was aware of the plans of the Americans. Strictly speaking, this led Stalin to start developing his own atomic weapons.

    As a result, the Soviet Union collapsed without the use of weapons. For the collapse of “thank you,” I must say Gorbachev-Judah.

    But Yeltsin and other liberals, one might think, have nothing to do with them and instead of "thank you" we say "please."
    Humpbacked - just a guy thrown to the top of the government, not thinking about all the responsibility ... But Borka with the gop company, this is a completely different scenario, he deliberately went to betrayal.

    Yeah! With this plan, Drobshots are worn as if they were a written bag! But each time they forget to say that he had to be realized in the event of a large-scale invasion of the Soviet Army in Western Europe! With the goal of “giving land to the peasants in Grenada”, so to speak! In the sense, and drive them into collective farms! So that the Europeans have nothing to eat!))) I had to confine myself to Afghanistan! They had no American nuclear security guarantees!
