What the heck did I just read? May I have a refund on the time spent reading that quasi-intellectual gobbly gook? If I followed it correctly? It is as
though, old Noam is claiming that the US should have played fair with the enemy, and somehow the US is solely responsible for subversion, worldwide
unrest, and activities of espionage during the Cold War years? That is how I followed what was mentioned in his article. According to Mr. Chomsky, the
US should somehow feel guilty because they played to win during the Cold War? Perhaps, a little dirty pool was played, but no scathing criticism of
the Soviet Union like what was displayed about the US and their foreign policy during those years? A few tidbits here and there, but clearly a lot of
soft stepping in regards to the Soviet Union.
I am glad that Nuclear War was averted and we can talk about it today. However, I believe Mr. Chomsky should reassess his position, because it is
teeming with that usual run-of-the-mill one-sided propaganda that is paraded around as legitimate scholarship and news. It is disgusting. The way he
talked about Nikita Kruschev is laughable. This is the same thug that used to pal around with Joseph Stalin, and most famously beat his shoe on the
podium at the UN while unleashing a tirade of threats against the Western World. As if his goons were not around the world engaging in subversion,
espionage, and terror? The KGB ring any bells, Mr. Chomsky? Perhaps, they were handing out chocolates and flowers to their enemies? The folks that
would put a bullet in a person's head without even batting an eye. After finishing that, they would round up that person's family and do the same, or
incarcerate them indefinitely. Oh, those Soviets. Such peaceful and compassionate people. Everything is the fault of the US. At least according to
various sources in the mainstream media and academia. What a mess!
