He also worked to improve the healthcare and education of his people and worked to keep Yugoslavia a country betweem super powers. He also developed his own style of Communism known as "Titosim" We study and take as an example the Soviet system, but we are developing socialism in our country in somewhat different forms. (...)

We've already captured five of them, one of them with a bomb and another with a rifle (...) If you don't stop sending killers, I'll send one to Moscow, and I won't have to send a second.
