Original Message Doomsday Countdown: US Hawks Pushing World to the Brink of Nuclear War.

US neocons are deliberately aggravating tensions with nuclear-armed Russia and thoughtlessly pushing the world to the brink of an all-out nuclear war, US veteran foreign policy consultant Dr. William R. Polk warns.

Washington is moving back toward a Cold War-style confrontation with Moscow over Ukraine, apparently forgetting that Russia still possesses a nuclear arsenal as large and as deployable as the US', US veteran foreign policy consultant, author and professor William R. Polk stresses.

According to the US veteran foreign policy consultant who served in the State Department's Policy Planning Council during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, a 13-day standoff between the United States and the Soviet Union, when the future of the world was hanging in the balance, became a terrible ordeal for both the United States and the Soviet Union.
"I do remember, however, a terrible episode fortunately lasting only a few minutes at which I thought to myself, 'let's just get it over with.' When later I met with my Soviet counterparts, I got the impression, although they denied it, that my feelings were not unique," he narrated.

To complicate matters further, technical mistakes are also possible, Polk noted, referring to the fact a nuclear bomb was actually dropped on America ("by a US Air Force bomber flying where it should not have been while carrying a weapon it should not have been carrying"). Fortunately, due to the fact that the firing mechanism was faulty the bomb did not explode.
