Yes don't forget that Ivan has fought us in every conflict since then to the present day. They are still bankrolling and supplying every country that is in conflict with us today. They will be one of the forces when the Mahdi starts his conquest of the Middle East. During WW2, Ivan used trucks to resupply their forces sent to them by us while the Germans were forced to use horses. That alone was one of the great reasons that Stalingrad was finally won.
