CB: But it wouldn't have been good for humanity for the U.S. to be the only country with nuclear weapons, no ? I mean especially from the standpoint of the Koreans and Viet Namese or even the Soviets. But even the Cubans. What would have become of the post WWII colonial independence movement , if the U.S. had a monopoly on the bomb ? >>

Talk about argument by non sequitur. What does the response have to do with the original contention? One could grant the argument of the response in its entirety, and it would still have no impact on whether or not Radosh was right that Julius -- but not Ethel -- Rosenberg did participate in espionage, or that the trial was not a fair one.


CB: Gee, you aren't too good at logic. I didn't say anything about whether or not Julius Rosenberg did it. What I implied ( but you are too dense to get) is that if he did do it, wasn't it a good thing ?
