Showing us 1960s school children the vids like this one bordered on child abuse. I used to feel as if I was going to throw up in my desk. I had trouble sleeping. I used to have panic attacks when I was 7 years old. What 7-year-old has panic attacks?
I am deeply troubled by Deep State drama kings & queens who want us to believe that our political process is compromised by Russia. People who believe that have ZERO comprehension of what the "Russian Threat" was. It was BOMBS! We lived in terror in the 1960s that Russia would bomb us.
I remember my parents listening with baited breath to news reports about the Cuban Missile Crisis. We faced a real and immediate threat: would we survive? I remember shopping centers – all strip malls at that time – where fallout shelters were displayed for tours.
In the 1980s when the USSR fell I danced; I literally danced in my kitchen. THE COLD WAR WAS OVER! Russia wasn't a threat anymore; they were going to be busy rebuilding – and, most of all, they weren't Communist anymore. Thank you, Grandpa Ronnie!
The threat of Russia was all about Communism. Russia is no longer a Communist nation.
Before Russia was Communist they were a friend to the US (and there are lots of materials available to explain why and how Russia was taken down by the globalists who then imposed Communism on the Russian people). Russia aided the US extensively around the time of the Civil War:

The people who want us to fear Russia are pointing to a boogeyman; a mere shadow of the true Communist and nuclear threat we used to face. If you're a younger person, learn some history, please. Russia was dangerous to the US in the 60s and 70s. But not now. Now Russia is a predominantly Christian nation, embracing the Russian Orthodox faith. Russia is now passionate for capitalism and freedom.
During the cold war we were led to believe that a hot war with Russia would end life on Terra as we know it. Could peace and cooperation with Russia possibly be worse than that?
