US was about to do Nuclear strike on mainland China, claims leaked documents

US government in 1958 was ready to go to do a Nuclear strike on China mainland at that time. This claim was made by classified documents posted online by Daniel Ellsberg of the “Pentagon Papers” fame show. Tensions rose at that time as China had started an invasion of Taiwan. The main agenda of communist China is to merge it with China.

US official at that time was ready with the plan of attack and was waiting for US President Dwight D. Eisenhower orders. US administration falsely assumes that the Soviet was backing China with military aid and with all things.

At that time after WWII world was divided between two blocks. Soviet and Western that is Communist and Capitalism and so US and Soviet were fighting with each other and their allies at every inch of border. From Cuba to Vietnam, Japan to Taiwan and the list goes on.

Ellsberg told the Times that he copied the top-secret Taiwan crisis study in the early 1970s, and is releasing it as tensions mount between the United States and China over Taiwan.

Had an invasion taken place, General Nathan Twining, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the time, “made it clear that the United States would have used nuclear weapons against Chinese airbases to prevent a successful air interdiction campaign,” the document’s authors wrote.

If China further continues the invasion, then there was “no alternative but to conduct nuclear strikes deep into China as far north as Shanghai,” the document said, in a twisted way.

The US dropped the Nuclear strike plan after China hold their invasion of Taiwan. China’s communist government pulls back its army from the Taiwan land at that time.
