    Few points in this documentary

    1- USA tacit approval of fanatics to get anti-US forces out
    2- West purposely demonise and overstate the USSR strength to justify high defence spending
    3- USA since 1950s decided to bolster the military sector (perpetual war boost economic growth)
    4- Public sector most dynamic sector in US the US tax payer laid basic fundamentals for computer which later transferred to private sector.
    5- Selling foreign intervention to public as human intervention (similar to colonisation where they prided to civilise local populace)
    5- Modelling uniform public opinion using mass media while at same time tolerating dissident voices to give appearance of free media
    but at same time marginalise them.

    So much for western support for freedom here is a nice video on what is happening in Syria. Kinda of scary if you think so though its a good pretext to tear down an enemy from within having said that I have no issues that a country has to annihilate its enemy but what bothers me is that its being done in name of supporting democratic forces.

    The Sovier-Afghan war 1979-1989, Iraq war 2003 and current Syrian Crisis just demonstrate western bigotry.

    As Putin rightly said;

    The Comrade Wolf knows whom to eat, as the saying goes. It knows whom to eat and is not about to listen to anyone, it seems
