"On the Brink of Armageddon" highlights the theory outlined in a book by BBC documentarian, Peter Hounam: "Operation Cyanide: Why the Bombing of the USS Liberty Nearly Caused World War III." From Hounam and others it can be inferred that President Johnson masterminded both the Six-Day War of 1967 and the Israeli attack on the Liberty. The latter operation was planned as a false flag attack, not unlike Johnson's Gulf of Tonkin hoax, this time to be blamed on Egypt. It seems that President Johnson hoped the sinking of the Liberty would serve as a pretext to join Israel's war.

The work of Stephen Green in the 1980s, principally his book, "Living By the Sword: America and Israel in the Middle East," revealed that the U.S. was deeply involved in Israel's war and must have been colluding with Tel Aviv for many months before June 1967.

"On the Brink" details some of the evidence supporting Hounam's incredible theory that LBJ planned to initiate World War III with the bombing of a Soviet air base near Cairo with a nuclear-tipped weapon. In the end, Cairo was spared the intended nuclear attack when the USS Liberty miraculously escaped its intended fate.
