Every veteran participant in high-level strategic decision-making (even Henry Kissinger in his fashion), knows that Lyndon LaRouche is right in insisting that Obama is playing nuclear “chicken” with Russia. (“Chicken” is a game in which two drivers race headlong towards each other on the between-the-lanes stripe of a highway,— and the first one to veer away from the collision, loses the game.) This is exactly what President John Kennedy pointedly refused to do, acting against the advice of most of his advisers, during the Cuban Missile Crisis of October, 1962.

Former MI6 officer Alastair Crooke, for instance, wrote in the Nov. 14 “Weekly Comment” of his “Conflicts Forum” website,

“Veteran American foreign policy commentator, William Polk, who, in earlier times, was a member of the three-man Crisis Management Team, during President Kennedy’s Cuban Missile standoff with Khrushchov, warns us starkly that we are heading towards another such perilous (even apocalyptic) moment of ratcheting tensions — up to real war.”

After outlining Polk’s argument, Crooke concludes,

“What was so striking about Polk’s account of ‘lessons not learned’ is that a very senior former Russian official had just told us the very same thing (how we seem to be repeating the same dangerous pattern that led to the Cuban Missile Crisis).”
