To Orwell Today,
"THE MILITARY ARE MAD"
Thank you so much for your JFK material. As a fellow admirer of a man I consider one of our greatest Presidents, I just wanted to share an historical highlight just in case you never heard of it.
During the Cuban Missile Crisis...as virtually all of his advisors were demanding we send in ground troops...what no one realized was the fact that the Soviets had already managed to base mobile nuclear missile launchers on the island of Cuba...and furthermore, any ground invasion would officially trigger the use of said mobile nukes against the United States.
Translation? Considering Cuba is a mere 90 miles off the east coast of the U.S....any such launch would surely have triggered a total retaliatory nuclear strike by America against the Soviet Union, thereby triggering their full response and... that's right... bye bye world and everyone in it.
In this light, one can make a clear and convincing case that JFK, by his excellent instincts and true world leadership ability, was directly responsible for saving the world and everyone in it...
No wonder all the conservatives ever want to mention in his memory is Marilyn Monroe and alleged drug use...
Keep up the great work.
Thanks for sharing your kind comments about JFK and your overview of the Cuban Missile Crisis.
It isn't just conservatives who malign JFK. He is equally maligned by liberals. Or another way of phrasing it is he is hated by capitalists and communists alike.
But "the people" loved JFK because he was for them (us). He was a true socialist. That's why they killed him and to this day they are attempting to destroy his image in the minds of "the people" not only in the United States but all over the world.
All the best,
