True , Stalin had British intelligence so infiltrated during WW2 , that he knew everything that was said between Roosevelt and Churchill . He also knew about the Manhattan project , but only so far as to what we were trying to accomplish . Churchill couldnt keep his mouth shut , and pre- empt the cold war by doing research called “operation unthinkable ” ( war with the Soviet union , started by the US and UK) . The idiot , donkey Truman didnt help the situation either . Action , reaction . The good side effect of WW2 , was the fact that they lost over 27 million people , something they are still recovering from to this day . That limits your abilities . Communists are very serious , but the higher ups also understood their system didnt work , and keeping the illusion alive was critical to survival . However they knew the clock was ticking , and it didnt take much for us to force them into bankruptcy , by creating measures that they would be forced to try and counter , One of them being Reagan’s Star Wars initiative program . They lacked technology , so were forced to put spies on the ground , we on the other hand , had very few spies on the ground , and relied on technology with 2nd hand information from our allies . This turned out to be a mistake in policy , we now have more spies on the ground . Spies are old school , but still the best way to keep an eye on your enemies . this is take two lol
