"I think the Russians got a weather machine
I think they're planning a takeover scheme
Doin' a good job on our countryside
They want to be our friends but it's an obvious lie
They buried New York and they drowned L.A.
Sometimes I wonder if I'll see the next day
I know the Russians are behind this shit
No one's goin' to know it until it's too late"
"Commander! You've rained on my glorious parade! For this, I'm sending everything I got at you, but I won't let you have the satisfaction of catching me. I'm escaping to ONE PLACE THAT HASN'T BEEN CORRUPTED BY CAPITALISM... SPAA-AACE!!"
"pa sa all the mess is due to gran. actually all the mess is due to the Russians, who are rotters."
"Yes, wherever bicycles are broken or menaced by International Communism, Bicycle Repair Man is ready! Ready to smash the communists, wipe them out, and shove them off the face of the earth!...
[voice rises hysterically] Mash that dirty red scum! Kick 'em in the teeth where it hurts! Kill! Kill! Kill! Filthy bastard commies! I hate 'em, I hate 'em! AAAUUUUUUURRRRGH!"
"Long live Stalin, he loves you
, sing these words or you know what he'll do.
"A. Corrupt the young... Make them superficial, destroy their ruggedness. B. ...Get them interested in sex, books and plays and other trivialities... By psychopolitics create chaos... Kill our enemies. And bring to Earth, through Communism, the greatest peace Man has ever known."

"It's impossible to get decent Chinese takeout in Beijing, Cuban cigars are rationed in Havana, and that's all you need to know about communism."

“For me, Modern Warfare 3's plot makes its signature turn around the bend when Russia invades Europe. As in, all of it. Simultaneously. Now, I've never invaded Europe, except for that one time, but I would think that's a project you might want to stagger out a bit if you haven't forged an alliance with any galactic empires lately.”
"The funny thing is, when I first heard the Baron's last name, I assumed it was a less-than-subtle reference to the Treaty of Westphalia, the series of agreements that ended the Thirty Years' War, and determined that matters of religion in Europe would solely be a matter of domestic importance, rather than one of international dispute. The Baron, therefore, as a sort of anti-Christ figure, would symbolize that the consensus created by the treaty is breaking down in the modern age, and that in the future, great and terrible wars will be fought on the basis of religion once more.
Instead, it just means he's related to Karl Marx's wife. You have no idea how disappointed I was after learning that. No idea."
"By cloaking themselves behind an impenetrable wall of secrecy (almost like a veil, or curtain, made of some kind of metal) Russia freed America's imagination to fill in the many blanks with details that were 10 times worse than reality. According to the movies, Russia was ahead of us on everything — space, missiles, sexy women spies, you name it — and at any moment they were poised to burst out and destroy us. Or break us, as the situation may require. When they tore down that wall, as Reagan had asked them nicely to do, it was a huge letdown to find out our invincible adversaries had been basically eating their shoes to keep from starving. Shoes they had to
wait in line to buy in the first place."
