Dr. Strangelove

The Cold War Podcast published an episode (MP3) on the classic movie Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

Things I learned from this podcast:

  • There were actual generals in the US (the hosts name Douglas McArthur) who wanted to nuke Soviet Russia while the US had more bombs (to wipe out the Russia threat once and for all).
  • An actual doomsday device was proposed to Nikita Khrushchev, but he rejected to build it.

I recommend everyone to watch this movie because it’s actually a funny one.

Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room!
