Resistance is Respected - Weakness is Despised
There is nothing communists respect more than strength. There is nothing they despise more than weakness. Those people who think that they can calm the situation by bowing to the mob, washing their feet, or brushing, or kissing their boots, not only figuratively, but literally, have no idea that all they are doing is greatly aggravating the situation and encouraging the revolutionaries to demand far, far more.
Never Bow to Bullies
In my experience, it is absolutely essential that one never gives Marxist bullies, or mobs, a millimetre. If you give them an inch, they will take a mile.
Being brought up in war-torn Rhodesia, experiencing terrorism and revolution, working in communist Angola and Mozambique, being imprisoned in Zambia and Mozambique and in so many other cases I have seen: the more steadfastly and strongly you stand, the better. The moment Marxists sense weakness, fear, or compromise, they smell blood and will only howl for more and escalate their unreasonable demands.

Frontline of Resistance
When Communism controlled one third of the world’s land surface and population, Rhodesia, South West Africa and South Africa were in the very frontline of the hot part of the Cold War, resisting the southward expansion of Soviet sponsored Communist terrorism.
Other hotspots in the frontline of resistance to Communist Revolution were: South Korea; Chile; Taiwan (Free China); Afghanistan; Nicaragua and of course the iconic symbol of the Cold War: The Brandenburg Gate as part of the Berlin Wall, dividing the capital city of Germany between the Soviet occupied German Democratic Republic (GDR) and the Federal Republic of West Germany.
The Hot Part of the Cold War
However, after the conclusion of the Korea War (1950-1953) and the Vietnam War (in 1975), the hottest part of the Cold War was Southern Africa.

As a Missionary, who for 38 years has concentrated on serving persecuted Christians in Restricted Access Areas, I have travelled in 42 countries and worked in 38 countries across 4 continents. This included throughout Eastern Europe, behind the Iron Curtain, during the Cold War.
When I first visited Yugoslavia and heard people in Croatia speaking about their need for independence, I was highly skeptical that it could succeed. Yugoslavia consisted of six republics, five nations, four languages, three major religions, two alphabets, but only one political party – the Communist Party.
In 1990, the first multiparty elections were held in Croatia. On 25 June 1991, Croatia declared independence, which came into effect 8 October 1991. By 15 January 1992, Croatia was recognised as an independent country by the European Economic Community. The aggression by Yugoslavia was effectively ended August 1995, with a decisive victory by Croatia. Since then, 5 August has been observed as a Victory and Homeland Thanksgiving Day.
