More missiles in Europe? It’s as if the US learned nothing from the 1980s

More missiles in Europe? It’s as if the US learned nothing from the 1980s

Four decades ago, the deployment of US intermediate-range missiles to Europe nearly triggered a nuclear war with the Soviet Union. Now, by deploying new missiles to Germany, Joe Biden simply underscores the insanity of US policy.
There is an oft-repeated saying, frequently attributed to Albert Einstein, that “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” While its pedigree may be uncertain, its central message is not lost on all those who have heard its words spoken or read them, a restatement of the American philosopher George Santayana’s famous saying, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

I am old enough to remember the crisis surrounding the United States’ introduction of intermediate-range nuclear missiles into Europe in the early-to-mid-1980s, in particular the Pershing II, a two-stage solid-fuel mobile missile with a range of 1,100 miles.

From its operating sites in West Germany, the Pershing II could strike targets in and around Moscow within four to six minutes of being launched, giving the United States and NATO the ability to decapitate the leadership of the Soviet Union in a surprise attack.

These missiles began being deployed to West Germany in 1983. So concerned were the Soviets about them, and NATO’s intent in deploying them, that when a large-scale command and control exercise, known as Able Archer 83, was conducted in November 1983, it placed its strategic nuclear forces on alert, fearing that the exercise was merely a cover for a NATO nuclear surprise attack.

In his autobiography, ‘From the Shadows’, former CIA director Robert Gates described the concern in the Soviet Union about the potential for a surprise NATO nuclear attack as being very real. In addition, he noted that, when coupled with increased levels of tension, this created a real danger of miscalculation that could easily have spun out of control into the ultimate conflagration – a general nuclear war between the US and Soviet Union that would have destroyed both countries, and much of the rest of the world.

Hello

I remember being a teen in the 80's being freaked out about Nuclear war especially when Reagan was talking about how we can win it.

I guess kind of how kids now days are freaked out about global warming.
