With the first satellite, first animal, man and woman in space, first robot on the moon,

first spacewalk and the first space station, the score is 7:1 for USSR and thus,

Russia wins the space race.

Mac was a fucking shitter who wasted lives trying to defend the Philippines despite the Navy saying "we literally can't defend this don't waste stuff here". Like, there's a reason that putting the US battlefleet in Pearl was considered forward basing, because the interwar USN was a fucking mess.

Don't forget that actually bombing China would have likely started an actual war with the Soviet Union. They wouldn't have had the nuclear arsenal to challenge the US but millions would have died when the soviets poured into Western Europe.

MacArthur is the worst type of military leader. He's all to happy to take a situation and escalate it to horrifying proportions.
