The world faces the very real prospect of a nuclear war. That this can be said after a century of world and regional wars, most of them begun or instigated by the USA and its puppet states, and 75 years after the United Nations was created to ensure that world wars could never happen again, reveals the complete moral bankruptcy of the west.
For the threat of nuclear war comes from the west, not the east, a threat that was almost turned into reality right at the end of the Second World War when the USA and Britain considered a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union, to solve the problem for them of the defeat of Nazi Germany. They had hoped that Hitler would destroy socialism in the USSR and then reduce Russia and the other soviet republics to western colonies for exploitation of their resources, markets, and lands. Hitler and the German fascists failed, their forces were destroyed, and Germany and most of Europe was reduced to ruins.
