The world knows what the US is doing today – toppling governments, arming extremist terrorists and maneuvering other countries to capture their natural resources! That’s typical US agenda and when anyone opposes, well that country immediately becomes a threat to world peace. US and her master – the Zionist Israel have been rolling out their dirty laundry to the world for ages. The Cold War era was no different. Even before the Cold War, US showed its dirty face by nuking two Japanese cities – an act that was absolutely unnecessary.
Cold War Document Declassified

During the Cold War era, America took the target list for nuclear strikes to an epic level. A recently declassified document from the years of Cold War revealed the list of 1200+ cities that US charted out for nuking if the tensions between the USSR and USA escalated. The declassified document reveals that US mapped out a plan for ‘systematic destruction’ of the listed cities by nuking them either on ground or very close to ground so as to maximize the radiation fallout and unleash terror with both thermal effect and blast effect.
What’s more chilling is that the plan completely went against international norms of deliberately hitting civilian targets. The now declassified 800-page document was prepared back in 1956 (during the summers) and was named as Strategic Air Command (SAC) Atomic Weapons Requirements Study for 1959.
National Security Archive made the document public this week and it can be found at Washington DC’s George Washington University. As per the document, General Curtis LeMay was SAC’s Commander-in-chief. The document showed that the US had planned on systematically nuking and totally annihilating well over 1200 cities with the target drop zones for the nukes being marked as DGZs or Designated Ground Zeros.
On the top of the list sat the two major Soviet cities – Moscow and Leningrad with 179 DGZs in Moscow and 145 DGZs in Leningrad. While Moscow and Leningrad had DGZs that were basically airfield and power installations, other targets in those cities included ‘civilian population’ targets. Among other listed targets were Beijing and Warsaw.
Of course USSR remained the focal point as the document revealed 1,100 airfield in the Soviet Bloc that were targeted with each airfield having a priority number assigned. Topping the list of the airfields were Bykhov and Orsha – both were located in Belorussia.
Bykhov marked as priority 1 and Orsha marked as priority 2 were painted as DGZs because they TU-16 planes, which were mid-range Badger bombers capable of targeting US military installments as wells NATO allies. As per the document, US planned on using nukes of 1.7 megatons to 9 megatons for various Soviet airfields. Not just that, US even planned on coming up with a 60-megaton nuke which 4000 times more devastating and powerful that that the one that was dropped on Hiroshima. Little Boy, the bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima had a yield of 15 kilotons only. The idea behind creating such a bomb was to ensure that US had a tool capable of delivering, what the document called “Significant Results”, in case the Cold War between US and USSR turned into a hot one.
While the priority always was the USSR, US charted out other targets in other communist regimes to ensure that communism was completely wiped out. In order to achieve that, the war-monger and power-thirsty US was not at all shy of painting civilians as targets for nuclear strike. As per the document, bombing operations were planned in a way that nearby friendly forces and even civilians were also exposed the deadly radioactive fallout.
Those who authored the document planned on ‘systematic destruction’ of USSR’s military and industrial in urban areas and explicitly targeted civilian populations in cities like Leningrad, Beijing, Warsaw and East Berlin.
The whole idea behind the creation of Strategic Air Command (SAC) Atomic Weapons Requirements Study for 1959 to ensure that US could destroy the air power of USSR because back in those days, air power was a major factor as long range missiles or even submarine launchers didn’t exist back in those days. Not just that! The document even reveals that after the first set of deadly blows of DGZs, US even planned on dropping a series of other nukes to all targets as a part of operation they named ‘final blow’. The nukes that the planned on using for final blow were meant to be 8 times the yield of Little Boy. This clearly indicates that plain destruction of targets wasn’t the only aim. US specifically wanted collateral damage.
According to analyst William Burr, the document had extraordinarily minute details and that the whole plan was simply ‘chilling’!
The document was received by National Security Archive through the process known as Mandatory Declassification Review or MDR. The document was kept hidden for more than half a century and is the naked truth of how US politicians show little respect to mankind. They are just driven by greed and lust for power and they are ready to destroy anything and everything that even feebly attempts to destroy them. Cold War was actually a fight between Capitalism and Communism and today’s capitalist US still continues to play the dirty games all over the world. The only difference is that they are now making use of press, banking and the so called ‘war on terror’ at the expense of not only the world but also at the expense of their very own citizens! And… all this is happening because the Zionists have taken control of America.
