The Washington neo-cons and liberal hawks again raise tensions over Ukraine in order to insult and even to destabilize the nuclear weapons of the Russian Federation, writes former U.S. diplomat William Polk in for independent information services Consortium for Independent Journalism.
Regiment emphasizes that in the U.S. today, there is no policy of John Kennedy, which could negate such sentiments.
The question of nuclear weapons, says ex-diplomat, remains one of the most important topics for world security, because even the slightest mistake or wrong action have the opportunity to have disastrous consequences. Review of the Regiment by analyzing the danger of nuclear conflict, one must take into account four factors.
the 1st and foremost, is the possibility of technical failure. The regiment gives the example, when the Eisenhower administration and the American commanders was detected by radar over Iceland flock of geese for enemy aircraft and led forces in fighting trim.
Secondly, the doctrine of " mutual assured destruction ", which is considered stable working under certain conditions. However, according to the Regiment, in a rapidly changing world, we cannot rely on temporal stability. It indicates the source is that countries that do not have the ability to spend huge sums for the supervision and maintenance of its nuclear Arsenal, such as Pakistan, are in the risk area.
Thirdly, despite the risks and consequences of nuclear war, which are so large that they outweigh any possible advantages of the use of nuclear weapons, the state has the ability to take citizens, who consider conflict a less preferred solution.
Fourth, citizens are responsible for taking key decisions subject to weaknesses. Regiment specifies as the source of our own experience gained in the settlement of the Caribbean the fall, when he experienced severe stress.
The regiment claims that North America is moving toward confrontation with Russia over Ukraine. Against this background, the ex-diplomat agitates not to forget about the fact that Russia still has a nuclear stockpile, which is More impressive than American.
