This week, the National office of archives and records of the U.S. declassified for the first time issued a list of potential targets of U.S. atomic bombing in 1959, which included hundreds of points in the USSR, Eastern Europe and China.
The document in question, is a table developed by the Strategic air command of the USA in 1956, with nuclear strikes during the possible war of the USA and the USSR. The plan of «systematic destruction», in particular, included 179 goals in Moscow, in Leningrad, 145 and 91 in East Berlin.
This step can be regarded, on the one hand, as a manifestation of information terrorism and the monitoring of global public opinion, said in an interview with RIA Novosti military analyst, Professor of political science and sociology, Russian University of Economics named after G. V. Plekhanov Alexander Perendzhiev.
«I have the feeling that nothing new has unveiled. In my opinion, there is a sensing of the world public opinion and certain aggravation of the situation. Supposedly could hit, but not hit. Like no open intimidation, but such publication can be regarded as a manifestation of information terrorism,» Perendzhiev considers.
