First of all, "was a jew"? As in he's not anymore? second of all, why is that in the first sentence? There are so many better things that could be brought up. Thunderkatz 08:40, 9 July 2007 (CDT)

It was done by an IP editor, perhaps a "vandal". We should check the rest of their contribs, they messed with chickenhawk, too. humanbe in 12:46, 9 July 2007 (CDT)

Reference[edit]

Can someone provide a reference for the last bit? I've never heard that the USSR was engaging in anything but deterrence (and that's kind of my field.)Researcher 22:02, 13 November 2007 (EST)

Not sure this belongs here[edit]

"Of course, these also would have been useful in the case of an imminent first strike, or even as a second-strike capability. (Which is why the US developed MIRV to begin with.)"

Isn't that more of a cold war article thing, or something like that, rather than in an article about one person? Just askin' is all. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:13, 4 October 2008 (EDT)

Agree (from a viewpoint of relative ignorance) think it's at least 10 years earlier. SusanG  ContribsTalk 03:17, 4 October 2008 (EDT)
The whole point was that Wolfowitz was part of "Team B", which tried to convince the US government that the USSR was a lot more aggressive than then-policy said. This is still hotly debated, all of these years later, and I was trying to provide some balance to the assertion that Wolfowitz was right and the Soviet Union was aggressive. The only evidence cited is the MIRV missiles, which the US already had. Unless you believe that the US was just as aggressive as the USSR (which Wolfowitz, et al, would have disagreed with), than the evidence provided is bogus. Researcher 10:03, 4 October 2008 (EDT)

Is he really a chickenhawk...[edit]
