On the right you can see a 1948 Soviet poster that foreign correspondents of the day reported as having been widely distributed across the Worker's Paradise. A veiled piece of patriotic pageantry, it was clearly intended to intimidate the Western democracies; it made its appearance a few weeks into the Berlin Blockade (June, 1948 - May, 1949) - an international stunt that gained the Soviets nothing.

The poster depicts an inconvenienced De Gaul standing among a bunch of irate world leaders as they cuss-out the Red Army; the caption reads:

"Firebugs of the new war would do well to remember the dishonorable end of their predecessors."
