America’s Secret Planned Conquest Of Russia
The U. S. government’s plan to conquer Russia is based upon a belief in, and the fundamental plan to establish, ‘Nuclear Primacy’ against Russia – an American ability to win a nuclear war against, and so conquer, Russia. This concept became respectable in U. S. academic and governmental policymaking circles when virtually simultaneously in 2006 a short-form and a long-form version of an article endorsing the concept, which the article’s two co-authors there named ‘nuclear primacy,’ were published respectively in the world’s two most influential journals of international affairs, Foreign Affairs from the Council on Foreign Relations, and International Security from Harvard. (CFR got the more popular short version, titled ‘The Rise of U. S. Nuclear Primacy’, and Harvard got the more scholarly long version, which was titled ‘The End of MAD?’.)
This article claimed that the central geostrategic concept during the Cold War with the Soviet Union, Mutually Assured Destruction or ‘MAD’ – in which there is no such thing as the U. S. or the U. S. S. R. conquering the other, because the first of the two to attack will itself also be destroyed by the surviving nuclear forces of the one responding to that attack – will soon be merely past history (like the Soviet Union itself already is); and, so, as the short form of the article said, ‘nuclear primacy remains a goal of the United States’; and, as the long form said, ‘the United States now stands on the cusp of nuclear primacy.’ In other words: arms-control or no, the U. S. should, and soon will, be able to grab Russia (the largest land-mass of any country, and also the one richest in natural resources).
