Joint Chiefs unanimous vote for nuclear first strike
« on: July 07, 2018, 04:34:33 PM »
 According to Daniel Sheehan on the following video around 26 minute mark, Sheehan claims that after the US encircled Cuba with a naval embargo and then warned the Soviet's that any ship that tried to break the blockade would be an act of war, a Soviet ship, on the night of Oct 16,  did attempt to break the blockade. According to Sheehan, it is at this point that the Joint Chief's voted unanimously for a nuclear first strike on the Soviets, and JFK said to Kenny O'Donnell  "I will not be the man who does this" A turning point perhaps

 It is not clear from what I can see as to the extent of the nuclear first strike as suggested to JFK and it may indeed have been limited to the Soviet missile sites in Cuba But there was no reason to use nuclear weapons on those sites unless you were a madman

 Maybe some of you are aware of this, or perhaps there is a debate about whether it went down this starkly

 And Chomsky says he was just another cold warrior

This is a very good topic, I read it a few days ago. I just haven't formulated a view yet but the exact kinds of topics this forum needs.
