“Russia gains by August 13, the US loses; they were the same story, two ends of a seesaw. A new, more effective means of warfare. Instead of taking lives and destroying property, which was the old way, you won by simply changing what people thought about the United States.”
Max Karpov, The Children's Game

“All it takes is a catalyst. A match to light a fuse and the United States will go up in flames, much as the Soviet Union did in 1991. The US is just as vulnerable,”
Max Karpov, The Children's Game

“The big war that is coming will not involve nuclear weapons. It will be a game that is played in rooms that most people never see.”
Max Karpov, The Children's Game
