Khrushchev to Kennedy - Pushing the world to the brink

We're going to go back in time, briefly.
Thinking of Syria in particular.
Where the US and company have again thrown down the gauntlet.
Drawn the proverbial line in the sand.
Syria; on the agenda is the US intent to deny Russia access to the Mediterranean.
Also keeping in mind AP's post on the Magnitsky/Browder fiasco.
The more things change the more they stay the same?
Or the more we think they have changed, the more mistaken we are?
Reading this from 1962, one realizes that nothing has really changed.

A letter written by Khrushchev to JFK during the Cuban Missile Crisis

"Imagine, Mr. President, what if we were to present to you such an ultimatum as you have presented to us by your actions. How would you react to it? I think you would be outraged at such a move on our part. And this we would understand.

Having presented these conditions to us, Mr. President, you have thrown down the gauntlet. Who asked you to do this? By what right have you done this? Our ties with the Republic of Cuba, as well as our relations with other nations, regardless of their political system, concern only the two countries between which these relations exist. And, if it were a matter of quarantine as mentioned in your letter, then, as is customary in international practice, it can be established only by states agreeing between themselves, and not by some third party. Quarantines exist, for example, on agricultural goods and products. However, in this case we are not talking about quarantines, but rather about much more serious matters, and you yourself understand this.

You, Mr. President, are not declaring a quarantine, but rather issuing an ultimatum, and you are threatening that if we do not obey your orders, you will then use force. Think about what you are saying! And you want to persuade me to agree to this! What does it mean to agree to these demands? It would mean for us to conduct our relations with other countries not by reason, but by yielding to tyranny. You are not appealing to reason; you want to intimidate us.

No, Mr. President, I cannot agree to this, and I think that deep inside, you will admit that I am right. I am convinced that if you were in my place you would do the same.

.... This Organization [of American States] has no authority or grounds whatsoever to pass resolutions like those of which you speak in your letter. Therefore, we do not accept these resolutions. International law exists, generally accepted standards of conduct exist. We firmly adhere to the principles of international law and strictly observe the standards regulating navigation on the open sea, in international waters. We observe these standards and enjoy the rights recognized by all nations.

You want to force us to renounce the rights enjoyed by every sovereign state; you are attempting to legislate questions of international law; you are violating the generally accepted standards of this law. All this is due not only to hatred for the Cuban people and their government, but also for reasons having to do with the election campaign in the USA. What morals, what laws can justify such an approach by the American government to international affairs? Such morals and laws are not to be found, because the actions of the USA in relation to Cuba are outright piracy. This, if you will, is the madness of a degenerating imperialism. Unfortunately, people of all nations, and not least the American people themselves, could suffer heavily from madness such as this, since with the appearance of modern types of weapons, the USA has completely lost its former inaccessibility.

Therefore, Mr. President, if you weigh the present situation with a cool head without giving way to passion, you will understand that the Soviet Union cannot afford not to decline the despotic demands of the USA. When you lay conditions such as these before us, try to put yourself in our situation and consider how the USA would react to such conditions. I have no doubt that if anyone attempted to dictate similar conditions to you -- the USA, you would reject such an attempt. And we likewise say -- no.

The Soviet government considers the violation of the freedom of navigation in international waters and air space to constitute an act of aggression propelling humankind into the abyss of a world nuclear-missile war. Therefore, the Soviet government cannot instruct captains of Soviet ships bound for Cuba to observe orders of American naval forces blockading this island. Our instructions to Soviet sailors are to observe strictly the generally accepted standards of navigation in international waters and not retreat one step from them. And, if the American side violates these rights, it must be aware of the responsibility it will bear for this act. To be sure, we will not remain mere observers of pirate actions by American ships in the open sea. We will then be forced on our part to take those measures we deem necessary and sufficient to defend our rights. To this end we have all that is necessary."

Respectfully yours,

N. Khrushchev

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result.


  1. AMAZING find there Penny!

    The problem is, trouble was averted here so that arrogant pig Zbigniew Brzezinski decided to bring down Russia in a different way. Arming the mujahedin to fight back in Afghanistan, therefore creating the American asset known as Al Qaeda. The goal was to push Russia to defeat and break her bank through military and medical expenses.

    The plan succeeded but at such a cost!
    Millions of Russians suffered the fates millions of Americans face today and many died of poverty related causes.

    And we are still in Afghanistan while Al Qaeda works its evil around the globe.

    Great letter, but, alas, only a temporary setback for the machine.

  2. thanks noor!

    Was thinking about Syria when I posted that letter.

    Noor, I am assuming you are aware that the pig Zbigniew armed the mujahaddin to actually attack Russia, drawing the russians into a quagmire..

    an fyi for anyone who may not be aware, though I do assume all are aware of this?

    Q: When the Soviets justified their intervention by asserting that they intended to fight against a secret involvement of the United States in Afghanistan, people didn't believe them. However, there was a basis of truth. You don't regret anything today?

    B: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.

    Al Quaeda continues to serve loyally and faithfully it's US paymasters, the latest job was in Libya and they are making appearances in Syria too.

    Al Ciaduh always shows up where and when needed.

  3. oh yes. I have posted photos of him with Tim Osama... showing him how the weapons work so many times it is ridiculous.

    His main reason for his hatred of Russia stems back to his childhood and what would have been a true trauma for a young boy. Only unlike the rest of us schmucks, he was of a social status to actually make mischief over his puerile pain. And, in a truly Zionist fashion, make the rest of the world suffer for his hubris and hatred.

    I do not know if he is a Jew, but it would not surprise me. He and Kissinger are two of the same only he was much more attractive and minus the gutterpig accent that the swill Kissinger has.

    His finger on the button is much more elegant but the end results have been worse for the West while Kissinger's were worse for third world nations.

    But it is all ok. We are just a big chessboard for scum like him to play games for the Rothschilds on. And he played real nasty in Afghanistan and is completely unapologetic about it all.

    Rather like Albright was over the massacre of ... sacrifice... of thousands of Iraqi babies to their Moloch.
