Ronald Reagan: Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.
There is another very important phase of warfare. It has as its target, not the body, but the mind of the enemy. The target of psychological warfare is against the enemy's mind. It is words and ideas. Ammunition used by psywar.

Wolves hiding nearby
Whispering do or die around me
You say your last goodnights
While I keep getting by
Gripping at my skin

If your opponent is of choleric temper, seek to irritate him.
Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant.
Have you ever wondered who's pulling the strings?
Born from the ashes of a world at war
You'll find us in the shadows
At the tip of the spear
A threat rises in the East
Warfare is evolving
And all the world's a stage

We can deceive, persuade, change, influence, inspire

We are everywhere
A feeling in the dark
A message in the stars
Ghosts in the machine
What, are we?
