That is the only way to deter because there will be no victors in a future global war that could be thermonuclear. The attack on Korea was part of a greater plan for conquering all of Asia.
I have thought long and hard about this question of extending the war in Asia. The Soviet Union could now afford to achieve nuclear parity with the United States in raw numbers, although for a time, they appeared to have chosen not to.
It has already slowed down the timetable of conquest. It was created to encourage European countries that had defaulted to pay back debts from World War One. I hope my essay has made a phenomenal impact towards your perspective on this scenario. And the ability of the whole free world to resist Communist aggression has been greatly improved.
We do not want to see the conflict in Korea extended. This was an agreement between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union stating that they would not attack each other. Henry Kissinger 's view on tactical nuclear war in his controversial book Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy was that any nuclear weapon exploded in air burst mode that was below kiloton in yield and thus averting serious fallout, may be more decisive and less costly in human lives than a protracted conventional war.
The whole Communist imperialism is back of the attack on peace in the Far East. I do not propose ever to sacrifice American life for anything short of this. Atlantic Charter Britain was failing miserably even at sea which was its specialtyand thus Roosevelt responded by expanding the merchant escort zone which meant that US ships would escort merchant ships farther into the ocean.
Some of these were trivial errors and were spotted quickly, but several went to more serious levels. Behind the North Koreans and Chinese Communists in the front lines stand additional millions of Chinese soldiers.

In the last analysis such a compromise between national and international sovereignty seems impossible.
The flip side, that only luck has prevented World War III, is almost too horrible to contemplate. Nuclear myths extend back to dawn of the atomic age. Invery few people knew about America's.
Many who have read and relied on Winston Churchill’s magnificent historical works may be surprised to learn that he once devised an elaborate explanation of how Jeb Stuart prevented World War I. This seemingly far-fetched analysis was the great man’s contribution to If, or History Rewritten, a.
