Hence my argument
Since they were based on two totally separate doctrines of communism, one would have to go. This would have made it impossible for the Soviets to take over everything, as the other guy was trying to say. Rather asinine theory in my opinion. There was no way that the USSR was poised to roll over everything. He claimed that USSR was powerful enough to roll over everyone without the prescence of American troops in the west. I claimed differently and was simply trying to show why that would be impossible under several scenarios.
