Make sure you read the Iron Curtain speech!

Tonight– we’ll be going this on Friday– possible quiz.

Here are some nice review questions:

1. What does Churchill say that the Russians respect?

2. What does Churchill mean when he says that the US stands “at the pinnacle of world power?” What by implication is he saying about Britain?

3. Where exactly does he state the location of the iron curtain?

4. What is a “fifth column?”

5. Where is particular does Churchill talk about the Communist threat immediately being the greatest?

6. What two adjectives does Churchill use when talking about the next war, if one were to break out with the Soviets?

7. What common characteristics does he note that both the US and Britain share that make us suitable to protect Western civilization?

    I had trouble with #6, as well. I’ve not found a satisfactory answer in the text, but some parts of the sixteenth paragraph seemed to be close-ish.

    Sigh…. Okay, a hint for number 6– both words begin with “i” and they’re in the same sentence.

    Now I just had major surgery on my computer, and I’m going to go rest. Ta-ta!
