Storyboard Text

  • Exactly! Truman the president and Stalin the General Secretary of the communist party are two of the biggest super powers at the moment.
  • Man, the Cold War has lasted 2 decades now. This tension between the US and Soviet Union is getting out of control.
  • Indeed. Hopefully they do not get their hands on a hydrogen bomb. This immensely powerful bomb is 1000 times more powerful than conventional nuclear devices.
  • I am aware. I assume the Korean War is getting worse as well. Even though North and South Korea are fighting, I bet it will not solve much. 
  • Exactly. Going back to the Cold War, I think it is more than a war. It also involves the space race, the competition between nations regarding achievements in the field of space expolorations. 
  • Exactly. That is why we should have things like this in containment, or keeping something harmful under control. 
  • That sounds a lot like what is happening in the US, the Red Scare. The promotion by a society or state about a potential rise of communism
  • Yes that too, this is a great example of brinkmanship. The art or practice of pursuing a dangerous policy to the limits of safety before stopping. 
  • Yes, this was a very smart move from Joseph McCarthy, the senator of Wisconsin of 1947. While they found commies, I bet they did not find a fraction of the commies. 
  • Yes with all of this happening, the US had to apply McCarthyism. This is where cases and allegations were happening against communist from Soviet Union in the United States. 
  • Indeed we should speak again soon. 
  • Exactly, well it was nice talking to you.
