Dr. Strangelove in the Ukraine – US strategy in the Cold War against Russia

RAND’s benign mission statement deodorises their role as war planners and coup makers. Managers of war and masters of doublespeak, RAND is a leading US National Security think-tank, financed by the US government and US corporations, which has played a major role in planning all US wars since 1947, including the present war in Ukraine. In the film Dr Strangelove, the RAND corporation were satirised as the BLAND corporation and the character of Dr Strangelove was based in part on RAND’s chief strategist, Herman Kahn.
