will collapse. Now... I want our boys to raise their heads. I want
them to act like they have *balls*! I want them to stop shitting

publish the army newspaper again. We must tell magnificent stories,
stories that extol sacrifice, bravery. We must make them believe in
the victory. We must give them hope, pride, a desire to fight.
Yes... we need to make examples. But examples to *follow*. What we
need... [he glances quickly at Khrushchev]... are heroes.
