Yeah. And the Soviet Union would have stayed out of Korea, and Vietnam. And South America. and Africa. And Europe.

You never heard of Henry Wallace until I explained to you who he was ...

The list of places you've mention don't impress me because they didn't pose an existential threat to America.

The only exception was Europe, where the Soviets were our allies and sacrificed tens of millions of their citizens in defeating our common enemy in Nazi Germany.

So it is understandable that the Soviet Union would want influence in those countries on their borders. The problem was always those countries bordering the USSR, which of the competing political philosophies, communism or capitalism, they would have? -- in other words, this was always about money.

All the money America spent on ...

- Hyping the Cold War
- Creating the Military Industrial Complex
- Medding in other country's internal affairs like Iran and Vietnam
- By-product of all this was corporate outsourcing of American labor

What did YOU get in return for 70 years worth of your tax money being spent on these things?

Your children having crappy retail-service jobs with no healthcare benefits or pension?

Your grandchildren having no real longterm family sustaining employment prospects?

But you're free!

Free to die a painful and penniless death because everything is set-up to SUCK EVERTHING from you all the way until your very last dying breath.

Of course, it never had to be this way.

And it all started when the United States mishandled our relationship with Stalin and Russia when they were our allies during WWII.
