I remember very clearly from the early ‘50s to the late ‘80s who the enemy was during our cold war with the Soviet Union. Even James Bond knew who the enemy was. There was From Russia with Love, Goldfinger who looked just like Nikita Khrushchev, the KGB (the Soviet Union’s CIA) and scores of other spy and action movies. The Soviet Union was the enemy and everyone knew it. There was no confusion or hush-hush, don’t say the word you might offend the enemy. We got it, and we beat the hell out of them on every front.
I imagine when our Generals met with their counterparts from Russia our guys would always give the Soviets the heat and remind them “Hey, Yuri did you see us kick your asses in that last Bond movie (wink wink)?” It probably went something like that.
And the coup de gra had to have been when our very own action movie star Ronald Reagan stepped out of the big screen to tell the Soviets “Tear down this wall Mr. Gorbachev” as he Star Wars’d them into submission. Ronald Reagan knew who the enemy was and he knew what to do with them. Oh and let’s not forget the government unions by firing every last one of the air traffic controllers. But I digress.
Unfortunately, our current President is confused. He won’t identify the real enemy while targeting innocent American civilians as the enemy. Seems strange for one of our very own Presidents to do such a thing, isn't it?
You see it’s always a good thing to know who you’re shooting at. You never know, it actually could be the enemy!!!! ;) – N.P.Contompasis
