Güei ye 18 de xunetu. El día en que'l fascismu entamóse acabar col país vecín. Nesti día murniu, los soviéticos y los asturianos recordamos a los grandes lluchadores antifascistes d'España, a les brigaes internacionales "Aida Lafuente" y "Ochobre" que dieron el sangre y la vida llucha pola llibertá del pueblu vecín. Tamién recordamos y emponderamos a toos esos españoles que vinieron a Asturies exiliaos a la gueta d'un futuru meyor y qu'ellos mesmos fixeron d'Asturies y de la URSS un llugar meyor. #URSS#comunismo#comunismu#communism#RPG#rol#ochobre34#ochobre#DDO#guerrafria#coldwar#guerracivil
The OverHype of The Cold War?- George HW Bush/Cold War Team B,
U.S. Domestic Propaganda
In the mid 1970's, then CIA Director, George HW Bush approved a report from members of a group, that had become known as "Team B" who were in charge of threat assessments of Soviet Russia.
The CIA of course, had already been doing this for years, but some thought they might be underestimating the Soviets.
As history has shown, Russia was crumbling, & the threat to us, was decreasing by the day. None the less, these chosen members from Team B, despite the evidence, were declaring that Russia had all sorts of advanced technology, & weaponry. Thus keeping the public scared, & funding coming in to continue the Cold War. One can only imagine how much more tax money their false accusations cost the public, not to mention, needless fear. We were still being taught to duck underneath our school desks in the late 1980's!
Very, very interesting stuff, & you can bet this type of propaganda carried over into the War On Terror.
