The Telegraph says that President Nixon planned a nuclear strike on North Korea in 1969.

Big deal.  The United States has planned for nuclear war with our adversaries since 1945…and I am willing to bet we still do.

Many people plan to lose weight, write a will, exercise regularly, and quit smoking.  Often there are disconnects between planning and doing sometimes for good reasons but often not.

If the axiom failing to plan is planning to fail holds true, Nixon’s planning was reasonable and prudent.
