NSC-68

I was reading Wiki's feature article yesterday on George Kennan (who, shock horror, died this year and I didn't know :-/ ) and it got me reading an early Cold War report called NSC-68 and it's full of nitwitry. They just didn't have a clue back in the day either.

Inspired me to make some sigs and posters:



The next looks a bit weird...



...so I made another a bit different



People who cannot distinguish between the USSR and other commies are foos.

Cool posters... the first one is really good, the explosion mixing with the brain...good symbol! one problem... if I can recall correctly, the report was issued before the russian atomic bomb right?

The report got round when there was a soviet A-bomb but no H-bomb yet. The USA still had a large advantage nuke-wise but the uSSR was closing the gap. The joys of arms race...
