As it happens, the Soviet satirical magazine Krokodil (1938), got it frighteningly right:

The Krokodil magazine, issue 9, 1938.
The Krokodil magazine, issue 9, 1938.

“Why so many troops here?”
“In case of provocation.”
“What if there’s no provocation?”
“What do you mean no provocation, with so many troops!”
