Kay, I am working on a concept for a trailer for an upcoming game. Can't say more naturally, just that its set in a fictional 1950 where during an airlift a russian plane actually does crash into a US transport and war errupts.

Now what I am looking for are famous quotes of this aera related to the topic of the cold war, the relationship between russia and the US, everything useable in an historic context.

Anny help or hints would be greatly appreciated.

''Why are we in Europe?'' Clay asked in a teleconference message. ''We have lost Czechoslovakia. We have lost Finland. Norway is threatened. We retreat from Berlin. . . . After Berlin will come western Germany. . . . If we mean to hold Europe against communism, we must not budge.''
