How nuclear blackmail failed

21

70 years ago, 24 July 1945, at the Potsdam Conference of the Great Powers, when discussing the postwar arrangement of the world, the head of the United States, Harry Truman, informed the Soviet leader Joseph Stalin about the creation in the United States "weapons terrible destructive power. " However, he did not specify that we are talking about nuclear weapons (the Americans fired the world's first nuclear explosion 16 July 1945 g.).

However, to the surprise of Truman and the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, Stalin "did not lift his eyebrows." They decided that he did not understand them. In fact, the Soviet leader had long known about the American atomic project and was aware of similar work in Britain and defeated Germany. He knew that the allies of the anti-Hitler coalition tirelessly create a “miracle weapon”. The Anglo-Saxons and did not know that Soviet intelligence regularly reported to the Kremlin about the Anglo-American secret developments. Soviet agents also worked in the holy of holies of America - the Manhattan Project; they penetrated into the British special services. And in the Soviet Union itself, a group of scientists headed by Academician Igor Kurchatov worked on the development of nuclear weapons from the 1943 year.

In a relatively short time, Soviet scientists managed not only to catch up with the Anglo-Saxons, but also to overtake them in the development of atomic energy necessary for the defense of the country and the development of industry and energy. The appearance of Soviet atomic weapons destroyed the Anglo-Saxons' plans for nuclear blackmailing Moscow and establishing their own world order. The monopoly on nuclear weapons that threatened the planet with horrific consequences (a good example: the American nuclear bombardment of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which killed hundreds of thousands of civilians), was destroyed by Soviet genius.

It is clear that at first the Americans in the field of nuclear development were somewhat ahead of the Soviet Union. It was an international group of high-class specialists, with virtually unlimited financial opportunities and political support from the powerful. On the side of America played a kind of "team of the world." Back in the fall of 1939, the scientists E. Fermi and L. Szillard, who moved from Europe to the USA, convinced A. Einstein to write a letter to F. D. Roosevelt. In a letter, a well-known scientist spoke about the prospects for the emergence of nuclear weapons, warned about the threat of their appearance in Germany and proposed that the US government help researchers begin developing such weapons. In March, 1940, the US government began to fund the "Manhattan Project" to develop nuclear weapons. In 1941, in England and the United States decided to allocate the means and resources for the creation of nuclear weapons. In 1942, the world's first nuclear reactor was launched in the United States.

It is obvious that the so-called. “The world behind the scenes” - an informal transnational association of financial and industrial clans of the West (main centers in London and Washington) - pushed and supported the US atomic project. After all, the idea of ​​building a new world order — a global non-slave-owning civilization with castes of “gods” and “two-legged tools” —had not gone anywhere. The project "Hitler" launched a big war in Europe, another clash of Germany (which gave almost all of Europe) and Russia. Russia and Germany were to die in this meat grinder or leave it as weak as possible, unable to resist the predatory plans of London and Washington. After the Second World War, the United States and Britain should not have remained a competitor in the fight for the place of the "king of the hill."

The Anglo-Saxons planned to establish their own world order, the essence of which Hitler and his ideologues, who were just good students of the Anglo-Saxon masters of the Great Game, ingenuously showed. And nuclear weapons were necessary for the “gods” to punish any disobedient people. The first to hit came the Japanese people. As a result, Japan is still an American-occupied territory. However, the further development of plans to build a global concentration camp destroyed the Red Empire of Stalin. The monopoly on atomic energy was broken and the Soviet (Russian) people once again saved humanity.

11 February 1943, Joseph Stalin signed a government decree on the organization of work on the use of atomic energy for military purposes. Initially, the work in this direction was headed by Molotov. In April, a special laboratory No. 1943 on the atomic problem was established at the Academy of Sciences of the USSR 2, headed by Kurchatov. The best Soviet organizer of the time, Lavrenty Beria, actively took up this business. Gradually, Beria became the curator of the atomic project.

Stalin supported Kurchatov, who in September 1944 wrote Beria’s letter about the insufficient supply of laboratory No. 2 and the poor organization of atomic research work. As a result, Molotov, who was too busy with other concerns, was suspended from project management. At the beginning of 1945, Stalin approved a number of important resolutions aimed at the development of the atomic project. The decree of the State Defense Committee No. 7357 instructed A. Ioffe and A. Alikhanov to complete the construction process of the cyclotron laboratory at the Leningrad Institute of Physics and Technology by the beginning of 1946 of the year. 27 January 1945, Stalin signed the decree of the State Defense Committee No. 7408 on the organization of the search, development and mining of uranium in Bulgaria. This uranium ore was used at the first Soviet nuclear reactor. In February 1945, Stalin signed a decree of the State Defense Committee on the training of nuclear physicists for laboratory No. 2 and related institutions.

At the same time, information on nuclear research came from abroad. Soviet intelligence was able to obtain reliable and sufficiently detailed data on the American project. According to the famous intelligence officer Sudoplatov, “the description of the construction of the first atomic bomb became known to us in January of 1945”. Intelligence has informed the Kremlin that the first test of an atomic bomb in the United States could happen in just a month 2-3. This allowed the United States to create an arsenal of atomic weapons in a period of one to five years. In April, 1945, the Soviet intelligence team gave the scientists a number of accurate information on the construction of a nuclear bomb and methods for the separation of uranium isotopes. Kurchatov was soon able to send a report to Stalin about the prospects for the use of nuclear energy and the need for extensive measures to build nuclear weapons.

It should not be thought that Soviet scientists merely “mounted” the atomic bomb according to the finished drawings. Without underestimating the merits of Soviet intelligence and ideological supporters of the USSR, it must be remembered that the creation of nuclear weapons in the Union was not only related to revealing the secrets of the enemy, but also required the development of new materials, new technological processes, new instruments and new machines, fundamentally new branches of science and technology. technology, entire industries. Soviet scientists introduced their original ideas (this will in the future allow the USSR to outrun the United States in creating a hydrogen bomb). Soviet authorities and scientists had to build an advanced nuclear industry in a country that had only recently been agrarian-industrial, unlike the advanced industrial American power, and was drained of blood by war.

It was not for nothing that American researchers John F. Hogeron and Ellsworth Raymond, after examining Soviet scientific, technical and industrial potential, published an article “When Russia Will Have an Atomic Bomb” in 1948, in the year “1954” this is the earliest time when nuclear weapons will be created in the USSR. According to other Western estimates, the Soviet Union could have tested the atomic bomb no earlier than 1955-1957. However, the Soviet organizers, scientists, engineers, technicians and workers have denied this opinion by creating nuclear weapons in 1949.

Not surprisingly, Stalin showed complete disinterest when American President Truman informed him about "weapons of terrible destructive power." First, he already knew in detail about the American program. Secondly, he did not show the "partner" that he knew about nuclear weapons. According to Churchill, Stalin smiled, but did not become interested in details. The British Prime Minister considered that Stalin did not understand anything and was not in the know. Thirdly, Stalin did not bite on the “bait”, did not try to find out about the “miracle weapon”, showing his weakness, being frightened by nuclear blackmail.

However, the American test in the Alamogordo desert of the first nuclear explosive device and the nuclear strikes on Japanese cities contributed to a significant increase in the efforts of Soviet specialists to develop nuclear weapons. 20 August 1945, a special committee established a special committee chaired by L. P. Beria to create the nuclear industry. This committee includes candidates for membership in the Politburo - G. M. Malenkov and N. A. Voznesensky, prominent business executives - B. L. Vannikov, A. P. Zavenyagin, M. G. Pervukhin, scientists - I. V. Kurchatov, A. F. Ioffe and P. L. Kapitsa. At the same time, the First Main Directorate (PSU) was formed, headed by Boris Vannikov. Numerous enterprises and institutions from other departments, including the scientific and technical intelligence department, were transferred to the PGU. Stalin instructed the First Chief Directorate to create an atomic bomb, uranium and plutonium, in the 1948 year. The bomb was created a bit later, in 1949. Soon, Beria will hand over the People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs to S. N. Kruglov and concentrate even more on the work at the head of the special committee.

At the same time, the USSR developed projects of long-range missiles (ballistic missiles). And although Stalin and Beria did not manage to witness the Soviet triumph in space, it is obvious that they made the USSR an advanced space power, which was able to launch the first artificial satellite of the Earth in 1957 and launch the first man in space in 1961.

In addition, thanks to Stalin and Beria, as well as other ascetics organized by the Soviet leaders, an effective air defense system was created in the USSR, a bomber aviation long-range, fast-paced fighter aircraft developed, which made unrealistic plans for an unpunished attack on the Union, which were cherished in the West. The appearance of atomic weapons in the USSR caused a shock in the West.

The Americans first folded the Fleetwood plan, adopted on 1 on September 1948 of the year and providing for the start of the war against the USSR before 1 on April of 1949. Then the Troyan plan, which was drawn up at the end of 1949 of the year, was canceled and provided for the start of US military actions against the USSR 1 in January 1950 and the use of 300 atomic bombs and 20 of thousands of conventional bombs against 100 in Soviet cities. The new “Dropshot” plan, adopted at the beginning of 1950 of the year, was postponed to the 1 of January of 1957. The Anglo-Saxons had to abandon aggression against Soviet civilization, as it threatened with unacceptable losses. The fear of a retaliatory nuclear strike was increasingly held back by Washington’s aggressive plans.

The Anglo-Saxons were ready to unleash an atomic war against the Soviet (Russian) civilization. The blood of millions of innocent victims did not embarrass them. So, 1952, US President Harry Truman, said: "We will wipe out any ports and cities that need to be destroyed in order to achieve our goals." However, the iron will of the Soviet leader and the response of the Kremlin saved Russia-USSR from destruction and the planet from the global concentration camp, which they planned to build back in 1940-1950-s.

    I'd like to believe that somewhere in the quiet of offices, far from idle eyes; something similar is being forged, something that will abolish some of the sides of the force of the "world exploiters" (say missile defense). Let them lose the most precious thing they have - money!

        Blizart in Russia in the silence of cabinets the national heritage was being intensely drunk, and everything that Amers could punish was done by IVStalin and his team. I’m scared to think if the situation was unreasonable, how would they cover up the country. in direct confrontation with the USSR and the IVS, Stalin accepted the challenge and nullified the advantage of the amers as soon as possible, there was what and to whom.

          Not tired of the Stalinist tales?
          1. The first bomber capable of delivering nuclear weapons to the United States appeared in 1957.
          2. The 8K-71 missile appeared in 1960.
          3. The 8K-64 missile appeared in 1963.
          Stalin died in 1953. Beria was shot in the same year.
          No "Stalin's command" after 1953. was gone. This is everything that was created in the late 50s, early 60s and later, did it "grow by itself"? How is a vegetable in Stalin's garden?

      There is such a novel "Victory" by the author Chakovsky. Very interesting and truthful about the Potsdam conference. In my opinion, this was a triumph for our diplomacy. We then completely "made" the Anglo-Saxons. By the way, the novel is written in a very interesting and exciting way.

        The Potsdam Conference, in fact, summed up the results of the war, in which the USSR made the greatest contribution to the Victory. Accordingly, the USSR should have the greatest benefit from the Victory. But the benefits, except for Konigsberg-NO.
        Poland, the eternal enemy, has grown by a third, has become stronger. United powerful Germany, which killed more than thirty million Russians in two wars, remained the efforts of the USSR unified, and today, again, it teaches and threatens Russia, the core of anti-Russia in Europe. The reparations actually partly failed (only 2,8% of the total losses of the USSR were compensated), part of the USSR itself refused them. ...
        Did our grandfathers die for this? And not for Germany to even squeak more never could not, not that threaten? Shouldn't Germany and others like her, to the last pebble, restore everything to Russia and only THEN restore it to myself ?!
        In Potsdam, everyone won, even the defeated ones, the winner, in fact, at his own expense, restored what the Nazis destroyed all the aggressor states, which ultimately went unpunished ....
        The swing was big, yes, half of Europe, but where are these half of Europe today? Enemies! And they were always, from this and it was necessary to proceed! And take all that is possible - and reparations and indemnities - for OUR peopleIMHO ....

          Write everything right, but you need to understand that the largest and most developed and richest part of Germany was in the hands of the Americans and the British.
          And secondly, too large reparations from the territories that were part of our zone would mean that their population, which was not very loyal to us, would become even more hostile.
          With the outbreak of the Cold War, this would be an additional minus.

          In my opinion, the then leadership of the USSR probably didn’t just limit the size of reparations, most likely all the pros and cons were calculated.

        Who, in your opinion, is "our diplomacy"?
        If the British, then you are right. They deftly steamed France as a victorious country. And Germany was divided not into 3, but into 4 parts.
        Also, the Saxons shed on the neck of the USSR all the Eastern Holodrons. For reference, in the USSR in 1946-47 there was a severe famine. According to various estimates, from 0,8 to 1,5 million people died of starvation in the USSR. And 1948-49 is not so strong, but there was still hunger.
        And the "new friends" did not have any hunger. Guess why this is so? I hint that the USSR at that time was exporting grain abroad. If in 1938-40 the USSR exported 3,6 million tons of grain, then in 1946-48 it exported 5,7 million tons of grain. Moreover, the gross grain harvest, in comparison with the pre-war, fell 2,4 (!!!) times.
        What kind of "victory of diplomacy" is this?

      An article from the series "There is nothing to say, but I really want to." Continuous Soviet propaganda in the style of "the insidious enemy does not sleep" and "and in fact they gave our city."
      And now the facts:
      the USSR
      Впервые THEORETALLY AND SINGLE NUCLEAR CHARGES the opportunity to hit the United States, the USSR received in 1957. After the troops began to arrive TU-95 / 95M (bomber). But they had very few chances to reach the goal, mostly theoretical.
      Впервые PRACTICALLY AND SINGLE NUCLEAR CHARGES the opportunity to hit the United States, the USSR received in 1960. After the weapon was adopted missile 8K-71/74.
      Впервые PRACTICAL AND MASS NUCLEAR CHARGES the opportunity to hit the United States, the USSR received in 1963. After the weapon was adopted rocket 8K-64. It is not entirely clear whether the combined power of the charges was enough to completely destroy the United States. But everything speaks of what was to be missed.
      USA
      Впервые PRACTICALLY AND SINGLE NUCLEAR CHARGES the opportunity to hit the USSR, the United States received in 1945. But it was completely unnecessary for them, they could wipe the USSR off the face of the earth with bombardment and conventional ammunition.
      Впервые PRACTICAL AND MASS NUCLEAR CHARGES the opportunity to hit the USSR, the United States received in the very beginning of the 50s. For the complete destruction of the USSR would also need bombing with conventional ammunition.
      Впервые TOTALLY DESTROY the USSR ONLY nuclear weapons, the United States received in 1957.
      Сonclusion
      As can be clearly seen, from 1945 to 1960, the United States had the opportunity to destroy the USSR with virtually no harm to itself. Moreover, until 1957. the USSR didn’t even have THEORETICAL a chance to respond to this. And from 1960 to 1963, the USSR in response could hit the United States with only single charges, inflicting renewable damage on it. Parity in this area was established only since 1963.
      PS Blowing up a bomb at a training ground, and blowing it up on enemy territory, are two different things.
      PPS Do not focus only on nuclear weapons and discount bombardments with conventional ammunition. After all, nuclear bombs are only substitutes for conventional ones. It was only in the USSR that, due to the lack of carriers, the emphasis was exclusively on nuclear weapons.

          From the history. Media brands indicated, can check the years.
          The fact that in 1957 the United States already possessed a nuclear potential of 5.543 warheads with an aggregate megatonnage of 17.500 MT, too. These and the consequences of its use are on the Internet.
          Also on the Internet you can inquire about the US bombing of Japan with conventional ammunition. In fact, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they were "little things". Full-scale tests.
          Early in the morning 10.03.45/1665/40 Americans dropped 84 tons of bombs on Tokyo. It was burned to the ground XNUMX square meters. km of urban development. Killed XNUMX tych. person.
          Only in March 1945 84 square meters were burned in Kobe, Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya km urban development. Killed and wounded 220 thousand people.
          Early in the morning on 14.04.45/2100/1945. 58 tons of bombs have already been dropped on Tokyo. By June 200 large cities of the Japanese ended and the Americans crossed the destruction of XNUMX cities with a population of no more than XNUMX thousand people.
          So, without nuclear weapons, the Americans could have done a lot.

        I do not agree.

        I can imagine what would have happened if the mattress had attacked in 1945. What the hell is the possibility when the Soviet army would have wiped them into dust in Eurasia. What's next? They had "bombs" in a very limited number, and the war continued, the USSR would simply bring its bombers (the same copies of the B-29) at the same military pace, and goodbye Alaska, and then the rest of the United States, as a result of the retaliatory atomic bombings and a ground offensive with a landing across the Bering Strait. Is it a joke to destroy the USSR with conventional bombing? They bombed Vietnam for ten years, and did not finish bombing, they would not have destroyed the Soviet Union in a hundred years. You pass off American propaganda as a reality, in reality, aviation alone has not erased anyone into dust, wars like air intervention in Serbia only confirm this - the side simply surrenders, not seeing the prospect of victory even at the cost of great sacrifices. The USSR would not have surrendered, that's what there is no doubt about. In a word, your words are "Wishlist", but the truth was different. The USA did not attack precisely because they were afraid; I agree with the author.

          What a fucking opportunity, when the Soviet army would have dusted them in Eurasia
          US-British-German-French-Spanish-Italian army? And even without Lend-Lease supplies? Those. virtually no aviation or food? Barefoot, without shoes? No medicine? Do not make me laugh. And look at the Lend-Lease supply structure.
          They had "bombs" in very limited quantities,
          Did you come up with this yourself?
          and the war continued, the USSR would have simply brought its bombers at the same military pace (the same copies of the B-29)
          He brought them up. At a "military pace". In 1957.
          Destroy the USSR by conventional bombing is a joke?
          What are the jokes on this subject? You just can’t imagine what it is. On the Eastern Front 2MB, this thing was not used, the parties did not have carriers. The Americans had. Read about the bombing of Japan.
          They bombed Vietnam for ten years, and never bombed
          Vietnam was not bombed.
          in reality, aviation alone has not erased anyone into dust
          Erased Japan. She was bombed to destroy.
          The USSR would not give up, that's what there is no doubt.
          Why such confidence?
          The US did not attack precisely because they were afraid
          Clearly explain what they were SPECIFICly afraid of, can you?

            There was no such army, everyone would be blown away at once, the Shermans would fight against the IS-3.

            If in 1949 they were counted, with what fright they were heaps four years earlier?

            Do not need verbiage. At a military pace, this is 41-45, and at 57 it is peacetime.

            No country was "erased" by anyone, Japan surrendered after the loss of its army, navy, and after atomic strikes.

            3 times more bombs were thrown to Vietnam than to the Reich.

            From there. Reich won, the mattresses, of course, would not give up.

            They were afraid of us, they were afraid of getting lyuley in the end. Believe anything, after such a Victory.

              You are very optimistic.
              This is a well-known fact. If in 1949 they were counted, with what fright they were heaps four years earlier?
              By July 1945. the United States Air Force had more than 3000 B-29 Superfortress. Maybe for you it is "in spite of". But each of them at a distance of 3300 miles (5310 km) could take on board 4,1 tons of bomb load. This range "covered" the entire territory of the USSR. With 12 thousand tons of bombs in one sortie. And it must also be added that at stratospheric altitude this plane was invulnerable to the weapons of that time. And even later, in Korea, with the counteraction of jet fighters, losses amounted to 1 aircraft per 500 sorties. Tu-4, Soviet copies of the superfortress, entered service in 1949.
              Do not need verbiage. At a military pace, this is 41-45, and at 57 it is peacetime.
              Why not in 1915? To fantasize, so to fantasize. Or do you think that the Tu-95 was made after the sleeves, in their spare time from work?
              Japan surrendered after the loss of the army, navy, and after atomic strikes

                onli-ne. For most points, there is no answer. But it would not be better at all.

                By July 1945. the United States Air Force had more than 3000 B-29 Superfortress. Maybe for you it is "in spite of". But each of them, at a distance of 3300 miles (5310 km), could carry 4,1 tons of bomb load. This range "covered" the entire territory of the USSR. With 12 thousand tons of bombs in one sortie. And it must also be added that at stratospheric altitude this plane was invulnerable to the weapons of that time. And even later, in Korea, with the counteraction of jet fighters, losses amounted to 1 aircraft per 500 sorties.


                It is difficult to leave this impudence unanswered.
                The B-29s were invulnerable, but when attacking Japanese cities in the hundreds, they lost several machines per raid, sometimes in dozens, from the kutsets of air defense of the dying Japanese empire. There is no stratospheric height for the B-29. Yes, up to 12 km, and from this height they didn’t get anywhere at all, even with lighters on the plywood of Tokyo, so they began to bomb at night, from 1500 meters. One such intercepted our air defense, by the way. Accidentally flew.

                Not to mention the fact that my comment was about the number of atomic bombs ("in short"), and not bombers, which you tactfully "did not notice".

                So Germany was practically not bombed. So, for the order.
                Well, I won’t think about answering this comment and other similar ones, let this nonsense hang here further.

                  they lost several cars per raid, sometimes in dozens, from the kutsets of air defense of the dying Japanese Empire.

                  The one that was then copied? So he flew in. The motor fluttered at him, the pilot decided that he could not reach home. Intercepted, damn it. Than a finger?
                  Yes, up to 12 km, and from this height they didn’t get anywhere at all, even with lighters on the plywood of Tokyo, so they began to bomb at night, from 1500 meters.
                  Horror. I'm worried about these Americans. And then, for the Japanese. And then, for you. After all, you will soon write that it was Japan that bombed the United States. And she bought planes, stratospheric bombers from the USSR. The most technically advanced and strong country in the world. Everything goes to that.
                  Not to mention the fact that my comment was about the number of atomic bombs ("in short"), and not bombers, which you tactfully "did not notice".
                  About the bombs, I wrote in detail in the comment at 13:21.
                  PS. You don't really get offended. It's just that the communist tradition of wishful thinking has already got out of it. Along the way, blowing out of himself the left bubble of the type, "and what we were cool." All the "left coolness" of the USSR collapsed during the Cuban missile crisis. After that, even the dumbest ones realized that the king was naked. In the West. And in the USSR, another "victory" was declared. And so, from "victory" to "victory", the USSR smoothly reached its logical end.

                    So he flew in.
                    No, another one (and not one) arrived.

                    During the war with Japan, the American B-29 was discovered by two pairs of Yak-9 aircraft, intercepted and fired at the Korean airfield Kanko, where the Soviet, 14th Pacific Air Force fighter regiment was based. As a result of the shelling of the B-29, the leftmost engine caught fire and he immediately landed at the Kanko airfield.

                    Lies. Hundreds and thousands. In a day.
                    This is a drain. You just don’t know what you are writing about. A low percentage of losses on an airplane sortie is obtained only by considering combat sorties for the bombing of cities deprived of air defense. Meeting the air defense, the Americans lost 5-6 cars per raid. I repeat, from the actions of exhausted and half-dead Japanese air defense.

              You probably think that bombers and bombs make fools. Expensive, but there is no sense from them. Then read how many Japanese died. Somewhere here I wrote it.

          Khrushchev was from Yuzovka, where the Trotskyists were in the party organization. But he turned over in time, so he did not fall under reprisals. All his activities after Stalin's death indicate that he hated Stalin. Churchill said about him that he was the only person in the world who declared the dead man’s war and managed to lose it.

    As a result, Molotov, who was too busy with other worries, was removed from project management.


    Of the entire GKO team, Beria was the most loaded. And the atomic project was hung on him, because Molotov did not pull. In 1945, after the war, Beria handed over the "simplest" area of ​​work - the NKVD. And the atomic project has become the most important. And this is in a destroyed country!
    In the early 50s, Beria again returned the NKVD to its control. And the first decree abolished the entire system of force inquiry (torture), which took root within the walls of the apparatus. And then he began to clean the ranks of the Chekists. But he did not manage to finish the job.

    But what did Truman expect from Stalin when he informed him of his new weapon? That Stalin would be shocked in horror and would ask his mom? Well, right word, this is not Poroshenko, not such a person. I don’t know how to scare this person at all, he’s like everything survived, and one that Truman could not even dream of. By the way, Churchill most likely understood this and therefore never tried to scare Stalin. And as for assembling American drawings of his bomb, prepared by Beria, let them try to collect, at least bluntly, the blueprints mechanism and to make it work, not simple o also looked like. But the bomb is still not a stool or cupboard.

    Foreigners called Molotov "Mister NO". It was impossible to put pressure on him and force him to give up his Soviet interests. Even Churchill, later remembering, called him a robot, because Molotov showed no emotion and was always calm. In short, the man was in his place. And the atomic project required another - a techie and an organizer.

      They knew very well what is and what is not in the USSR. Where did the nuclear weapon come from in the country, even if there was almost no high-octane gas there. And the whole TPP is imported. Do you understand? In addition to junk like I-16, U-2 and a small number of modern aircraft, nothing could fly up without the help of allies. There was no fuel.

        On-line is clearly young and hot. I oppose in short. All numbers, I admit, are accurate. There is one, but a significant problem. It is called "three hundred Spartans". If all wars in history were won with such a simple mathematical arrangement ... Then we would give you the right to fever. But life is much more complicated, and there are much more factors both in the war as such, and in the geopolitical factors around it, than just numbers in the tablets counting the number of super-weapons.

        It is quite possible that you are right, I admit that the USSR would not have withstood (under certain conditions) the continuation of the war. But this is precisely what the victory of Soviet diplomacy consists in, in the fact that the United States and Britain really wanted to, but did not succeed. People did not sit, clutching their heads to the balls with moans "everything was gone!", But fought with clenched teeth and WIN. Both in the war and on the diplomatic front.

    I can imagine what would have happened if the mattress had attacked in 1945. What the hell is the possibility when the Soviet army would have wiped them into dust in Eurasia. What's next? They had "bombs" in a very limited number, and the war continued, the USSR would simply bring its bombers (the same copies of the B-29) at the same military pace, and goodbye Alaska, and then the rest of the United States, as a result of the retaliatory atomic bombings and a ground offensive with a landing across the Bering Strait. Is it a joke to destroy the USSR with conventional bombing? They bombed Vietnam for ten years, and did not finish bombing, they would not have destroyed the Soviet Union in a hundred years. You pass off American propaganda as a reality, in reality, aviation alone has not erased anyone into dust, wars like air intervention in Serbia only confirm this - the side simply surrenders, not seeing the prospect of victory even at the cost of great sacrifices. The USSR would not have surrendered, that's what there is no doubt about. In a word, your words are "Wishlist", but the truth was different. The USA did not attack precisely because they were afraid; I agree with the author.

    What if in 1950? Would they also destroy America once? At this time, the number of nuclear warheads in the USSR was about 5 against Sony or the other in the United States, the number of strategic bombers was a couple of hundreds against several hundred or even thousands of American ones. What could America defeat?

    For the author - dear Alexandermost likely, no one has ever canceled the plans to attack us, just when they were adjusted they received a new name, hence there are so many of them. We know about them, they (the so-called "partners") are also well aware of our knowledge - this is one of the reasons why everyone is still alive. The joint activities of scientists, Soviet intelligence of all kinds, the hard labor of workers and engineers led us to the possession of parity and to obtain relative peace.
    PS. Here is another opinion (even thinking, do not judge strictly) - don’t our parents be sure that after the most destructive war our country will not ensure peace, tranquility, development and prosperity (at the same time let the liberal rats dance as they wish), then - many of us simply would not exist.
