KGB: The threat to be replaced by the FBI

All those years fighting evil communism, going against the KGB. Now that the USS-turned Russia is faltering, the threat of the KGB has been replaced by the FBI.

Why did we spend trillions of dollars fighting communism, state secrets, only to bring in the worst aspects of the KGB into American prisons, society, and communities?

We won the Cold War, and then lost the peace. All those years fighting for principles that we are not able to truly stand up for and preserve.

Lip service doesn't inspire. It sews the seeds of contempt, loss of confidence, and growing apathy toward the ultimate disposition of government.
