Tashkent Summit and Decisive Role of China


What was the decisive role of China at the time of Tashkent Summit and in what extent China was responsible for the assassination of Lal Bahadur Shastri means poisoning incident which resulted in the mysterious death of Shastri Jee due to heart attack by poison. This is fully explained in Part I Chapter 5 Page 114 to 117 of my book: Silent Assassins, Jan 11, 1966.The book is available at www.amazon.com/    


There was consolidation of friendship in diverse ways— establishment of air links between the two countries, construction of the Sinkiang-Gilgit road, opening of a Chinese consulate at Dacca, etc. Pakistan maintained that China did not constitute any danger to Pakistan. 

It was during President Ayub Khan’s visit that Pakistan for the first time rejected the Two-China ll scheme of the United States. It was stated in the joint communiqué that President Ayub Khan reiterated Pakistan’s opposition for creating two Chinas. With the improvement of its relations with Pakistan, China also showed greater understanding in respect of Pakistan’s membership in Western military alliances.

China appeared to have accepted Pakistan’s explanation that its membership in the military pacts was not directed against China. On being pointed out the contradiction between Pakistan’s membership of the SEATO and Pakistan’s friendship with China, Chou En-lai said: “We do not deny that there is a certain contradiction. It is precisely for this reason that development of friendly relations between China and Pakistan has been a process of gradual accumulation.

Interestingly, the United States was not expected to take exception to Sino-Pakistan friendship because the United States, at that time, was exploring the possibility of using Pakistan as a mediator in an effort for bringing about a rapprochement with China. Pakistan was found to be of use in the role of a mediator. In July 1964, Ayub Khan said that half of his talks during Chou En-lai’s visit to Pakistan was devoted to Sino-American relations. The Soviet Union tried to get a foothold in Pakistan in the context of its differences and difficulties with China.  For nearly a decade after the Chinese Revolution in 1949, Sino-Soviet relations were very warm and very close. Their friendship was further cemented through the Sino-Soviet Treaty of friendship for twenty years signed.


Calculating that the strategic environment was in Pakistan’s favor, Ayub Khan made up his mind to find a military solution  to  the Kashmir  issue.  Pakistani strategists told him that India would not be in a position to face two fronts simultaneously. Pakistan used the Rann of Kutch War to asses the international support it could muster.  It noted to its satisfaction that the Soviet Union was strictly neutral and there was no reason to think that the Soviet attitude would change in the near future. Extending full-throated support to Pakistan, China for the first time intervened in a conflict between the two partners of the sub-continent. The Chinese Press reports were totally partisan. On 4 May 1965, China issued a statement on the India-Pakistan border conflict.  This statement was a scathing attack on India, charging India with following “big nation chauvinist and expansionist policy. It completely endorsed the Pakistani stand. The Chinese support emboldened Pakistan.  Its strategists calculated that China would open a second front and India would find herself in the unenviable position of fighting in two fronts.  And they hoped that the advantage would be Pakistan’s.  The British-sponsored Rann of Kutch agreement also gave Pakistan the hope that international pressure would prevail upon India to grant concessions to Pakistan in Kashmir. Pakistan started “Operation Gibralter”  to  capture  the  Kashmir  valley. Pakistan hoped that the  intervention of  its army would lead to insurgency in Kashmir, cause discomfiture to India and  the Kashmir  issue would  again be in  international limelight.

China wanted war between India and Pakistan should be continued. So by her hostile acts China evoked Pakistan. Chinese behavior amounted to adding fuel to the fire and fishing in troubled waters………………………………..


In order to exert pressure on India, China sent a protest note to India on 8 September.  The Chinese Government charged India with serious border violations on the Sino-Indian border.  China demanded that India must dismantle all the “aggressive military structure^’^  it had “illegally” built beyond or on the China-Sikkim boundary, withdraw its aggressive armed forces “and stop all  its acts of aggression and provocations” against China in the Western, Middle, and Eastern sectors of the Sino-Indian border. It was a veiled threat by China to open a second front.  India lodged a strong protest against this note and condemned China’s support to Pakistan “to fan flames of war” and for threatening to open a second front against ~ I n d i a.  Chinese answer was another ultimatum on 19 September which a1: Lowed three days for India to comply with Chinese demands. However, the Chinese ultimatum was not backed by military action. In fact, China never contemplated military action because it knew that it could not get away with it as the Soviet Union and the United States would not be silent spectators to the disturbance of peace and balance of power in South Asia.  According to an analyst, Mao Tse-tung was reported to have told Ayub Khan  that “if there; nuclear war,  it  is Peking and not Rawalpindi that will be the target”. Soviet Union watched the Chinese moves……………………………………………………………………..


If India and Pakistan were not quarrelling, and if their relations remained good with the Great Powers, China knew that it would be kept out of South Asia and the Great Powers could divert their attention and forces to containing Chinese influence in South Asia.  What was at stake wasChina’s deliberate and conscious effort to open a South Asian front in its quest for influence and power. China could not allow the slipping away of Pakistan from its orbit.

So China had. unleashed a vigorous propaganda campaign  to  dissuade Pakistan  from  going  to  Tashkent, which  in  Chinese view, would  result  in  Pakistan  being compelled to accept a dictated peace and the closing of Pakistan’s  options in Kashmir.

No one could be fooled by the Chinese charges against India.  Really there was something silly and funny about it.  China threatened to strike at India on the flimsy grounds of stealing some Chinese yaks and srabbins some Chinese territory.

Ayub Khan took a lesson that Pakistan should not commit the mistake of relying on China and that Pakistan should balance its relations with all the three Great Powers. It was this realization which brought the Pakistan President to Tashkent.

Similarity: Kim Jong Un – Sexiest Man of 2012 and Ex-French President


North Korea’s state television says an unidentified woman seen recently accompanying leader Kim Jong-un symbol of dictatorial dynasty rule to official events, is the country’s first lady.KRT named her as Ri Sol-ju, but provided no other details. Kim was seen at a performance two weeks ago accompanied by Ri Sol-ju, sparking rumors as to whether she was his wife, lover or sister. Some observers in South Korea speculated she was a singer he dated years ago before his father put a stop to it, but who was now back on the scene. Recent television footage showed the two laughing with each other during a visit to a preschool in Pyongyang and clapping while watching a performance featuring western show tunes and Mickey Mouse.Communist China’s official news paper The People’s daily described Kim Jong Un as a sexiest man of 2012. 


Official media in the secretive state revealed late Wednesday that a stylish young woman pictured accompanying Kim this month is his wife, Ri Sol-ju. It gave no details about her and did not say when they wed. The announcement that Kim Jong Un is married may be part of the process of establishing his authority. Kim Jong Un inherited the post of “supreme leader” of North Korea from his father, Kim Jong-il, who died last December. Since then, he has consolidated his hold on power, officially becoming a “Marshal” — the highest rank in the Korean People’s Army — last Wednesday.

Aged only 28 or 29, Kim Jong Un is the youngest head of state in the world


Kim Jong-un shy child awkward with girls


According to reports first published in Japanese newspapers, Kim Jong-un  went to school in Switzerland near Bern. First reports claimed he attended the private English-language “International School” in Gümligen near Bern under the name “Chol-pak” or “Pak-chol” from 1993 until 1998.He was described as shy, a good student who got along well with his classmates and was a basketball fan. He was chaperoned by an older student who was thought to be his bodyguard.


Later it was reported that Kim Jong-un attended the public school “Liebefeld Steinhölzli” in Köniz near Bern under the name “Pak-un” or “Un-pak” from 1998 until 2000 as the son of an employee of the Embassy of North Korea. Authorities of Köniz confirmed that a student from North Korea, registered as the son of a member of the Embassy attended the school from August 1998 till fall 2000, but were unable to give details about his identity. Pak-un first attended a special class for foreign-language children and later attended the regular classes of the 6th, 7th, 8th and part of the final 9th year, leaving the school abruptly in fall 2000.


According to some reports, Jong-un was described by classmates as a shy child who was awkward with girls, indifferent to political issues but distinguished himself in sports, and had a fascination with the American National Basketball Association and Michael Jordan.


For many years, only one confirmed photograph of him was known outside North Korea, apparently taken in the mid-1990s, when he was eleven. Occasional other supposed images of him surfaced but were often disputed. It was only in June 2010, shortly before he was given official posts and publicly introduced to the North Korean people, that more pictures were released of Kim, taken when he was attending school in Switzerland. The first official image of him as an adult was a group photograph released on 30 September 2010, at the end of the party conference that effectively anointed him, in which he is seated in the front row, two places from his father. This was followed by newsreel footage of him attending the conference.




Dictator and the symbol of dynasty rule in North Korea Kim Jong Un is the youngest head of the country as two youngest PMs of the world one is Stanislav Gross is the pin-up Czech Prime Minister and another Rajiv Gandhi.

Ex-French President Sarkozy


Less than a month after separating from Cécilia, Ex-French President Sarkozy met Italian-born pop singer and song-writer Carla Bruni at a dinner party, and soon entered a relationship with her. They secretly wed on 2 February 2008 at the Élysée Palace in Paris. The couple has a daughter, Giulia, born on 19 October 2011. It is the first time a French president has had a child while in office. Ex-French President Nicolas Sarkozy Sarkozy, nicknamed the “bling-bling president” by the media, reportedly gave Bruni a pink heart-shaped diamond Dior engagement ring, while she offered him a Swiss-made Patek Philippe watch. Ex-French President Sarkozy was the chief guest of India on the the Republican day Jan 26, 2008.

Propaganda by Photos




Obama used his daughter, 9, to promote tourism with swim in Gulf of Mexico

Stephen Lendman On August 15, AP reported that Obama gave his “personal assurances of (the) Gulf’s safety,” saying: “Beaches all along the Gulf Coast are clean, they are safe, and they are open for business.” He lied. The same day, Britain’s government owned BBC reported: “Barack Obama has taken a swim in the Gulf of Mexico (to) reassure Americans that the waters are safe despite the recent oil spill.” US corporate media reporters repeated the message, CNN’s senior White House correspondent Ed Henry among them, saying “Obama takes (the) plunge, swims in the Gulf (to show it’s safe and) open for business.” In fact, area businesses continue to be severely impacted, and the entire region is dangerously unsafe. As for Obama’s swim, on August 16, the London Independent reported that Obama and his daughter, Sasha, swam in a private Panama City Beach, FL beach off Alligator Point in St. Andrew Bay, not part of the Gulf. Reporters were banned, no TV video permitted. “So….only the White House photographer was allowed to capture proceedings.

Mao’s Propaganda by swim

On 16 July 1966, a great Crossing-the-Yangzi event was organized in Wuhan to commemorate the event. Mao showed up to stress his support for this exercise and plopped down from his boat to float downstream for over an hour. During his dip, he exchanged jokes with the masses and taught a woman how to perform the backstroke swim. The happening was covered extensively by the Chinese mass media. 

Director of the Party’s Propaganda Department: In late 1924, Mao returned to his home village of Shaoshan for the first time in 15 years to recuperate from an illness. Here, he discovered that the peasantry were becoming increasingly restless as a result of the social and political upheaval of the past decade, with some seizing land from wealthy landowners and founding their own communes. These actions convinced him of the revolutionary potential of the peasants, an idea advocated by the Kuomintang but not the Communist Party. As a result, he was subsequently appointed to the leadership of the Kuomintang’s Peasant Movement Training Institute, also becoming the Director of the Party’s Propaganda Department. In doing so, he became the editor of the Kuomintang’s newsletter, the Political Weekly (Zhengzhi zhoubao).

Corruption vs. Corruption

In my previous article ‘Propagandist China becomes fool by Onion Joke’ I have laced an example of propagandist joke which makes fool to the Chinese Official Newspaper ‘The people’s Daily’. Now in this article I give examples of biggest propagandist Congress party of India who wants to fight corruption by corruption. North Korean leader Kim Jongun has been named 2012’s “Sexiest Man Alive”, China’s Communist Party newspaper proclaimed on Nov 27, 2012.


DLF-Vadra Scam: Good Corruption has positive effect: Now on Oct 11, 2012 P M Manmohan Singh explained negativity over corruption can do us no good. Positive corruption is necessary for economic growth. Positive corruption is good corruption which is necessary not only the life of Sonia Gandhi P M Manmohan Singh of Congress led UPA government but also for the good health of the country.


From where Vadra and Rahul hired their CORRUPTION-GUIDE: Robert Vadra and Rahul Gandhi are not expert in the corporate business as Ambani, Tata, Mallaya etc. Even Sonia Gandhi is also not so expert in the corporate business. Gandhis and Vadra gather wealth more than 1600 crores from 5o Lakhs with in less than three years. Being an inexperienced in business how they did so? Who guided them? They hired the corruption guide or coach for this 8th wonder, but from where? Why could this not get entry in the Greenish book? They are not CAs. Then who cooked-books?


Innovative discovery of Corruption: Tax freee Donation to Congress for interest free loan to Gandhi family: Donations to political party means innovative discovery of Sonia-Congress for corruption: To facilitate Congress for making Tax Fraud, three years before then Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee enacted a law. According to that Political parties could receive more donations, with then Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee before three years announcing a 100% tax deduction on companies and individuals contributing to electoral trusts.Opposite to this to day present finance minister demanded Rs 5 crore service tax from aYoga Guru Baba Ramdev for teachig Yoga instead of teaching the ways of corruption!


Fighting corruption by corrupts: broke her silence on the issue of graft, saying corruption cannot be fought by speeches. Does it mean, corruption can be fight by corrupts’ corruption as published news about Gandhi dynasty?


“Learn from Sonia how to renounce power!” KGB and Sonia Gandhi


Former KGB spy Antonia Maino Sonia: To day’s talk is and coming days’ talk will be Indira’s India and KGB. But I want to remind and the facts show how close we were and we are to disaster under the Congress Party regime. “You cannot be made great by what you destroy but, by what you build”.


Who is a drain on public resources, Political Lobbying Corruption or RTI? Bofors to DLF-Vadra Scam via recently disclosed scams FDI in retail, 2G, Coalgate, Commonwealth Games 2010 scam are not the drains on public resources because these are political corruption. Political corruption is saved by the politicians, especially who are running the government. No need going in detail here. Political corruption is for the safety of public resources! Keeping money abroad for its safety


Who runs Govt: Swamy attacks Sonia – Rahul, Kejriwal others! AICC general secretary B K Hariprasad told reporters “If Ambani runs the govt, foreigners run IAC: Cong” He forgot to say “Italian and now also Scotish run the government as East India Company run India before independence” Sonia Gandhi is wealthier than three time premier of Italy Berlusconi and grabbed property worth Rs 1600 crorees….Swamy


Political Corruption is Kleptocracy means “Rules of Thieves”: A state of unrestrained political corruption is known as a kleptocracy, literally meaning “Rule of thieves” Rise of Indian kleptocracy- How Robert Vadra becomes billionaires from Rs 50 lakhs within three years and going to be the richest person of world in near future.

Propagandist China becomes fool by Onion Joke

Propagandist China has birth right to make fool to whole world including its people by propaganda. But now China itself becomes fool by a joke published in the American web site ‘Onion’. Please don’t make fool to yourself to think here ‘onion’ a vegetable. You may make April Fool in this context.


Now we find an interesting case of a joke taken too seriously, Propagandist Chinese ‘The People’s Daily ‘declared North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as the sexiest man alive, the BBC reported.


The Chinese Communist Party’s official newspaper – The People’s Daily, in its enthusiasm to highlight the positive stories on leader of the hermit kingdom, failed to get the joke that was published in an American satirical website named the Onion.


“The Onion online newspaper has named North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un as the sexiest man alive for the year 2012,” declared The People’s Daily.


As per BBC reports, Chinese Communist Party’s official newspaper Daily also went to the extent of publishing many strikingly casual pictures of Kim Jong Un, spread over no less than 55 pages to buttress the story.


The pictures show the North Korean supremo riding a horse, holding kids, doffing his hat, etc.


The pictures were supported by the tounge in cheek captions like “the Pyongyang heart-throb”, which were quoted directly from the American website Onion’s spoof.


Chinese Communist Party’s official newspaper The People’s Daily quotes many excerpts from the satirical article on the American spoof website, like:


“With his devastatingly handsome, round face, his boyish charm, and his strong, sturdy frame, this Pyongyang-born heart-throb is every woman’s dream comes true.”


“Blessed with an air of power that masks an unmistakable cute, cuddly side, Kim made this newspaper’s editorial board swoon with his impeccable fashion sense, chic short hairstyle and, of course, that famous smile.”


“He has that rare ability to somehow be completely adorable and completely macho at the same time.”


Propagandist Chinese state daily might have been taken for a ride by a very tounge in cheek comment by The Onion, which concluded the “Sexiest Man Alive” piece by writing, “For more coverage, please visit our friends at the People’s Daily in Propagandist China, a proud Communist subsidiary of The Onion, Inc. Exemplary reportage, comrades.”

Battle of Maps: Nehru vs. Lal Bahadur Shastri

Battle of maps is going on between China and India. 

Why India faced defeat in 1962 and why India won war of 1965. This is fully explained

Battle of maps is going on between China and India. This is fully explained in Chapter 16 on Pages 363 and 364 of my book: Silent Assassins, Jan 11, 1966.The book is freely accessible and loaded at: www.newsanalysisindia.com/


Nehru’s legacy

1.  Because of the Nehru tilt towards Soviet Union, India was alienated from the United States. Indian actions became suspect

2. Nehru alienated India’s immediate neighbors. He forgot the importance of geopolitics. He gave attention to globalism to forget South Asian Regionalism.

3. Nehru’s policy resulted in defense unpreparedness. It was after 1962 that the Department of Defense Production was setup within the defense ministry.

4. He left India internally weak and externally exposed.


Shastri -Period

While Soviet Russia was best public friend of India, Kremlin was also Pakistan’s best secret friend in times of crisis.

Shastri’s brief period produced military and diplomatic developments which not only shaped South Asian power relations but also formed the background of Indira’s security thinking and security policy.


The main security event in sub-continent during this period was Indo-Pak war in 1965. 

Shastri’s conduct of at the time of Indo-Pak war in 1965 campaign revealed a complete change in the approach of the new Indian leadership to Pakistan, and in the Indian military strategy. 


Shastri authorized the Indian army to take Lahore, if it could, and to achieve this aim, he authorized the Indian military forces to cross the international boundary, between India and Pakistan, and not to restrict military operations to the line of actual control in Jammu and Kashmir.


He demonstrated Indian Political will and thereby invalidated all major Pakistani assumptions in this crisis.  The Pakistani armor became bogged down in the flooded and open Punjab flatlands and it also became clear, in course of military operations, that Pakistani military personnel lacked the training and skill to operate sophisticated military armament. These facts are well known.


Less known perhaps more significant for our study in that Moscow intervened diplomatically against Shastri to make Pakistan by its Tashkent mediation diplomacy. Contrary to the public relations postures which both India and Soviet Russia, promote the policy of the USSR was to pull Pakistan from likely disintegration, as was possible in 1965, and Soviet conduct in this crisis reveals its hands. In other words, Soviet Russia, like Britain earlier, was pursuing a policy of Indo Pakistan balance of power in the Indian sub-continent. In this region, as in the Middle East, Moscow benefits from a level of instability between India and Pakistan.

Battle of maps: Congress vs Indian Army and Civil Bureaucracy

Battle of maps is going on between China and India. 

In this context here also should be noted that India’s armed forces and civil bureaucracy, and not the Congress party, have emerged the foundations of India’s nationalistic actions in external affairs. This is fully explained in Chapter 19 on pages 359-60 of my book: Silent Assassins, Jan 11, 1966.The book is available at www.amazon.com/ 


Assessed historically, India’s armed forces and civil bureaucracy, and not the Congress party, have emerged the foundations of India’s nationalistic actions in external affairs. Those groups have discovered the utility of the Hindu sub consciousness not only as vote getter but also as a barrier against undesirable foreign influences and as a source of internal strength in the matters of state, moreover, these groups have discovered a common purpose with the 100 million plus Indian middle class and overseas Indians who symbolized the dynamism of India. The coalition between the nationalistic, political and economical elites accounts for the resurgence of India’s private sector and this sector turned to the United States to select for high technology imports (For not political and military direction) and to Japan for high technology. . 


Pt Nehru forgot the importance of Indian Army and did he busy in world politics. The book titled Genesis & Growth of Nehruism Vol 1 : comment to Communism written by the late Sita Ram Goel, reveals that Nehru’s Man Friday, V.K. Krishna Menon (who also served as India’s Defense Minister) whom everybody blamed for the Chinese debacle was in reality, a mere pawn in the larger-than-life games that Nehru played with India and the Indian people. A step further, the focus of this book lies in exposing Nehru as a true-blood Communist.


Kuldip Nayar writes: General P.N. Thapar, the then army chief, was reluctant to engage the Chinese. He told me in an interview in July 1970 that it would have been like ‘‘disturbing a hornet’s nest’’. He had also pointed out in a note soon after taking over in 1960 that army equipment was in such bad shape and in such short supply that China or Pakistan could easily defeat India. Why was he pushed? Who pushed him — Nehru or the then defense minister, Krishna Menon? The Henderson-Brooks report might throw some light on these questions.

Effect of 1962 War was such that ultimately Nehru died in 1964 due to that. Misuse of Army by Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi took their lives.


This is an attempt to reveal why we Indians could not free POK, parts of Kutch and of course, Karachi and Lahore after 1965 and 1971 wars as China had successfully annexed Aksai Chin and huge tracts of land in Tibet and Arunachal Pradesh after the 1962 war. Why our all victories in the war were went vain due to the treaties which were signed by the Pakistan to forget.

Battle of Maps: Nehru vs. Vallabh Bhai Patel

“Former Prime Minister (PM) of India, Jawahar Lal Nehru’s ambition to become world hero, had surrendered the national security interest during 1962 Indo-China war,” said Air Chief Marshal Anil Y Tipnis, former chief of Indian Air Force (IAF).

Further referring the role of Nehru during the Indo-China war and his “failure” to act on prior information about Chinese intention, Tipnis said that the results of the war reflect his Inability to read writings on wall”. He added that the then political head of the nation must have stepped down because Indian troops were not having basic clothing and weapon and it was really shocking “how they ordered them to lose the war”.


Speaking on the issue, former army Chief, General V P Malik said that Nehru was the single face of India as far as foreign affairs were concerned at that time and his ‘Forward policy’ during the war was without application of mind because it was ordered without accessing our own strength, capabilities of air power and building infrastructure for the troops.

General Malik also rubbished Nehru statement made at that time on Indo-China war in Srilanka that “he has ordered his army to throw them (chinese) out “.


Malik added that the then home minister, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel had informed the government through a letter on November 7, 1950 about that the Chinese government is trying to delude us by professions of peaceful intentions but the letter was kept locked for 12 years. 

General Malik termed the decision of not using air force at that time as “Unforgettable error of judgment”.

Malik also criticised the statement of Nehru made in 1962 that India is in better position in Ladakh region while the GOC of 15 corps, who was responsible for the security of Ladakh region, Lt Gen S D Verma had disagreed Nehru’s claim.


Bharat Karnad, Research Professor, Centre for Policy Research, was of the view that time has come when India should adopt the policy of Tit fo Tat with China. Karnad added that the historical experience says that ‘appeasing policy’ adopted by India for China, is not viable at present time.

He also emphasizes on spending India’s defence budget on developing strategic capabilities like what China is doing.


Former high commissioner of India to Pakistan, G Parthasarathy was of the view that for China, morality does not matter and the time has come when India need to be very firm with China. Speaking on the ocassion, Security analyst Ram Madhav said that the strategic culture in the country needs to be developed.

Who wants repetition of 1962?

Comrade V K Krishna Menon was saying “Oh! They are not going to fight”. In 1962 Chinese had intruded into Indian Territory south of MacMahon line. Nehru, hided comrade believed. Now who are in the role of Krishna Menon and Nehr


PM in Menon line vs Airbase on China border

PM in the role of Krishna Menon, this is a wrong signal. India’s airbase is now on China border. It is a right step to correct the mistake of 1962. At that time India did not use its air force. 


Shaking hands should not be against the defense of Siachen heights Army Chief says India must keep Siachen. Our Prime Minister is going to Pakistan to discuss withdrawal from Siachen Heights. How can I dare to say that he forgets 1962 and 1966

Why had US planned to blow up the moon with a nuclear bomb in the 1950s?

The US had planned to blow up the moon with a nuclear bomb in the 1950s. US wanted to blow moon because Russia was at that time on commanding lead in the space race which was going on at that time between United States and Russia. United States had its mind “Without the Bamboo, the flute can never be played (na rahega baans na bajegi bansuri)”

At the height of the space race, the US considered detonating an atom bomb on the Moon as a display of America’s Cold War muscle.

The secret project, named ‘A Study of Lunar Research Flights’ and nicknamed ‘Project A119′, however was never carried out

America’s planning included calculations by astronomer Carl Sagan, then a young graduate student, of the behavior of dust and gas generated by the blast, the Daily Mail reports.

According to the report, viewing the nuclear flash from the Earth might have intimidated the Soviet Union (Russia) and boosted US confidence after the launch of Sputnik, physicist Leonard Reiffel said.

Under the scenario, a missile carrying a small nuclear device was to be launched from an undisclosed location and travel 238,000 miles to the moon, where it would be detonated upon impact.

The planners decided it would have to be an atom bomb because a hydrogen bomb would have been too heavy for the missile, the report said.

Military officials apparently abandoned the idea because of the danger to people on Earth in case the mission failed, the report added.

The scientists also registered concerns about contaminating the moon with radioactive material, Reiffel said.



The space race between the United States and the Soviet Union brought an engaging touch of science fiction to the Cold War. To American astonishment and dismay, the Russians at first took a commanding lead. Their programme was directed by Sergei Korolev, a brilliant aeronautical engineer and expert on rockets, who had displeased Stalin and spent time in the Gulag in the 1930s. He was a commanding figure who did not suffer fools gladly and his staff treated him almost as a god. In the 1950s he developed a massive and at the time almost unthinkably powerful rocket, the R-7, which would propel Soviet spacecraft to the Moon.


Sputnik 1, the first satellite ever launched, created a sensation in 1957 when it hurtled out into space and orbited the Earth every 96 minutes before falling back into the Earth’s atmosphere. Sputnik 2 took the first living creature out into space; a sweet-tempered dog called Laika, though she did not last as long as the Russians pretended. More Sputnik missions tested life-support systems and re-entry procedures. In January 1959 the spacecraft Luna 1 (which Korolev called Mechta, ‘the Dream’) was launched at the Moon, but missed by around 3,700 miles and went into orbit between the Sun and Mars.

Richard Cavendish explained how, on September 12th, 1959, the Soviet Union launched Luna 2, the first spacecraft to successfully reach the Moon.

Here this also should be noted that Worried United States on the nuclear strength of India might be the reason of the assassination of Lal Bahadur Shastri. This is fully explained in Chapter 19 my book: Silent Assassins, Jan 11, 1966.

Battle of Maps: China again wants repetition of 1962

Imperialist map in China's new passport
The new travel passport maps include Beijing's nine-dash
line-sometimes called the "Cow Tongue" line and Mao’s image of palm.
In response, India is issuing visas stamped with its own version of
the borders to counter Chinas claim.

China's new microchip-equipped passports with its imperialist map,
Beijing incorporate big swathes of the South China Sea and the
Himalaya, not to mention Taiwan. China's new microchip-equipped
passports contain a map that marks its claims over disputed waters and
also show as its territory two Himalayan regions of India. The map
means countries disputing the Chinese claims will have to stamp
microchip-equipped passports of countless visitors, in effect
acquiescing to the Chinese point of view.
Hanoi, Manila, New Delhi and Taipei of Asian nations announced they
would promptly respond to China's decision to issue a new passport
with a map that includes as part of China contested territories in the
South China Sea and the Himalaya. Without any coverage by domestic
media, China's new passports are fuelling resentment among other Asian
nations, including India, Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan.
