My only problem with Red Dawn is not the obvious logic holes, but that it has a tone that is so depressing it could make hardcore christians commit suicide.

::) The only two options in this poll should be "no" and "hell, no."

Seriously, anyone who has ever even HEARD of such obscure concepts such as "logistics," "nuclear Armageddon," "Russia" or even "literacy" should know that it never was even a remote possibility.  It took me years to perfect the clever plan by which my army of penguins and I will conquer and retain control of the world whilst circumventing similar problems.  Even I had difficulty, and I am an unprecedented genius (or psychopath, depending on who you ask - regardless, I'd agree with them).
Correction: the coat hanger should be upside down.

Yeah, I think it would be pretty obvious what was going on.  Troop movents and a mass mobilization of forces that would be needed for the attack would be pretty hard to hide.  Superior technology!

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.

It was 'real' Cold-War Propaganda, as That was what was entrained in our Nuclear Submarine training back in 1988..
Our U.S. submarines would've been 'swarming' around Cuba, and more-than-likely were during the Cuban-missile crisis back in 1962, though I can neither confirm nor deny that.. ::)
