@smiler2012 That may have been what she thought, but if so it only shows she was incredibly naive.

Even if she knew the USSR was doing its best to gain world domination by sedition and revolution; prepared to use open NATO / Warsaw Pact warfare but not if the former strategy succeeded, because nuclear weapons or not, fighting would cause so much damage to itself.
@ArishMell Yes , definitely naive. But personally I think she should have been imprisoned at least for some time

@VanHagan Oh yes, I agree!
I think they would have figured it out on their own. This allowed them to catch up faster to the fission bomb. The fusion bomb was all theirs.
@Northwest Im talking about the time when she gave the secrets away, not today. Yes I get the point. My question is about was she wrong in the year of the 'crime', not when she was caught. Get the point?

It looks like you missed my first answer. Here it is for you:

[quote]In 1943? Perhaps, but the issue is a lot more complex than that. It was about having the power to destroy the world, in the hands of one party: the US, and in the hands of the ruling party in the US. I don't blame who took it upon themselves to fix a moral wrong.[/quote]
@Northwest Thats what I mean , what moral wrong did it fix? It just created another risk to world destruction
