History Repeats

I learned today that the arms race between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. was manufactured by the U.S. Department of Defense. “it is believed that the gap was known to be illusionary from the start, and was being used solely as a political tool”

At least we have learned from our mistakes. It’s not like we went to war because the idea of weapons of mass destruction was politically advantageous.
