Washington’s Follies Are Dangerous to Us and to the World

THERMONUCLEAR WARFARE Physics of a Nuclear Blast ✪ Nuclear warfare Documentary Films

We always have to keep in mind that a Documentary, after all, can tell lies and it can tell lies because it lays claim to a form of veracity which fiction doesn’t. Some of the documentaries are made just to discredit some particular person, party, organization, system etc, but most of them here on TDF are non biased, without prejudice and worth watching.

The Legal Case for Striking North Korea First

(28.02.2018)

The Winter Olympics’ closing ceremonies also concluded North Korea’s propaganda effort to divert attention from its nuclear-weapons and ballistic-missile programs. And although President Trump announced more economic sanctions against Pyongyang last week, he also bluntly presaged “Phase Two” of U.S. action against the Kim regime, which “may be a very rough thing.”

Secret Plan Outlines the Unthinkable

(10.März 2002) WASHINGTON — The Bush administration, in a secret policy review completed early this year, has ordered the Pentagon to draft contingency plans for the use of nuclear weapons against at least seven countries, naming not only Russia and the „axis of evil“–Iraq, Iran, and North Korea–but also China, Libya and Syria.
