Dr. Capeの追加コメント: Let me explain the state of China-Soviet relations around the early 1970s, which was much more critical than you explain. This is related to the timing of 1971 in the previous (most recent video). “One critical background issue of the 1971 drama (i.e., Beijing’s replacement of Taipei at the UN) was the border conflict (2 March -11 September 1969) between China and Soviet Union (USSR), which nearly boiled over into a nuclear exchange between the two Eastern-bloc powers. Purportedly, the USSR planned a preemptive nuclear-bomb attack on China, and asked the US to stay neutral. The Nixon Administration warned that such an attack would provoke a World War III. Yes, the geostrategic situation in the Asian continent reached an extremely risky state in the end-1960s and the early 1970s.”
