'Flash from Peel in Luanda sir, seems a Cuban ship has arrived with some heavy weapons.'
'No sir, no reports of personnel but I'd be suprised if they wouldn't be sending people to operate this stuff...oh, there are BM-21s as well as some anti tank recoiless rifles and mortars.'
'Yes sir, I realise the South Africans have encountered recoiless rifles and mortars but that was Soviet supplied equipment. My concern is that Moscow will use Cuban supplied arms and troops as proxies in the fight to impose a communist regime in Luanda.'
'The cousins sir? No sir. I can call him straight away and arrange a meeting. This afternoon? Yes sir'
'Moscow say "no" Comrade'
'Do they? Well, the Cuban people say "yes!"'
