RONALD REAGAN - "TEAR DOWN THIS WALL !"

Twenty years ago today in Berlin, Germany President Ronald Reagan called on Soviet General Secretary Gorbechev to tear down the Berlin Wall.

Reagan was the first US President to stand firm against the Soviet Union and that stance coupled with his policy of strengthening out military lead directly to the collapse of the USSR and the fall of the Berlin Wall ending more than forty years of Cold War with the Soviets.

His critics condemned him for his stance against the, "Evil Empire." Democrats believed that he would bring the ,"wrath, " of the Soviet down on America. Much of the world protested his stance against the USSR.

But Reagan new that Soviet Communism was weak and that a strong stance against their expansionist plans and ideals would lead to the end of the , "Evil Empire."

He was vilified then, but history has proven him correct and shown that his strength and steadfastness not only prevailed but brought to an end the threat of nuclear destruction from the USSR that had dominated US policy since the early 50's.

Ronald Reagan remembered. A truly great man and leader who lead during and extremely difficult time. He brought optomism and vision to the nation and pride in being an American.

Reagan's lesson to history is that we CAN achieve great things like freedom and peace for tens of millions in Europe if we have a vision and strong U.S. leadership.

Histories lesson also shows how the left, who opposed him every step of the way was WRONG and would have subjected the world to continued conflict and the threat of nuclear war.

Something to think about with today's war on terror.

History does repeat itself.

adolf hitler was your boy, you recruited him you financed him and you helped provide him with his ultimate solution. The deaths of 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 20 million Chinese and millions of other combatants all so your american blue chip corporations profits increased by a mutliple of ten. Simultaneously america sponsored revolutionary groups in China to destablize China and war with Japan while you sanctioned and embargoed the Japanese oil supplies in the South Pacific. You bought the Chinese " freedom fighters " their own air force of flying tigers. america was the last fascists left standing, you won the world by instigating and paying for WW II. Look up your own history that President Truman went to great lengths to protect you from. saddam hussein was your boy, you have pictures of rumsfeld shaking hands with him as well as selling him the WMD recipes and bulk corporate suppliers to make W.M.D.s and encouraged hussein to use them on Iran. The former shah of Iran was your boy. You, americans are hands down without question the most evil people to have ever walked the planet. You don't even care about your own evil history you are solely interested in maintaining the " kings for an evening " economic fascist theology. You are fools, reagan and Bush are puppets of old behind the scenes money and you ain't no democracy, haven't been for years. To few troops on the ground is by design not a failed military strategy. The idea was to create civil war, maintain the chaos and have it spread through the Middle East and not the spread of shining examples of democracy with a puppet like chalibi waiting to be the next henchman in the wings to play the heavy for evil consicenceless americans. Reagan was a tool and the terrorist attacks that happened on Bush's watch were also planned to be allowed on Reagan's watch to help soft america toughen up for war against the new enemy ; terrorism. The Dominos strategy has been sitting on the shelf for years and being continually updated. When you put saddam hussein in you didn't actually expect your US government not to have plans many plans for saddam hussein's removal ? Your evil Dominos plan has been on the shalf for decades and before the installation of saddam hussein. I am, amazed at how you evil americans love the profits of wilfull blindness, torture and mass murder. You truly are the most disgusting liars ever to have walked the planet, plutocratic fascist naziesque orwellian roveianlly infanticidal caligulesque mengelesque yankee's.

Says the person commenting. Doesn't even have the balls to leave a hyperlink. Typical moonbat.

Lots of drivel about conspiracy theories and secret ruling classes, but not a shred of evidence. Got anything to back up your delusions, or is it all just transmissions your receive when you're not wearing your foil hat?

Gee, I guess liberalism really is a mental disorder.

You fucking nut case plutocratic fascist naziesque orwellian roveianlly infanticidal mengelesque caligulesque yankee's really are brain dead. Facts you want, face it you love the killing and stealing and torture and are to stupid to check out your own history that your own governmwent went to great lengths to investigate. The information was so sensitive that it was buried from the public for 60 years like other integral pieces of america's sordid past; Kennedy's assassination.

I did not particularly like Ronnie, largely do to the policies he championed when I was a Californian and he was the govna. That being said I think he was genuinely one of our luckiest presidents. Things just sort of seemed to fall into place even when he was asleep. I mean to up and fire the entire air traffic control system and not have planes crashing into each all over the sky was to say the least super lucky. Here's a little tidbit that will kind of put the whole big picture into perspective. There were bigger geopolitical forces at work here other that "Mr. Gorbechov Tear Down This Wall".


**********************************

ALL ABOUT OIL....I am, I think, more inclined to give Ronald Reagan a share of the credit for the collapse of the Soviet Union than many of my fellow liberals. But while rock-jawed rhetoric and missile defense may have played a role in the demise of communism, they were hardly the overwhelming factors that conservatives play them up to be. I'm reminded of this by Yegor Gaidar, who, despite an obvious agenda of his own for saying so, tells a big part of the story here:
The timeline of the collapse of the Soviet Union can be traced to September 13, 1985. On this date, Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Yamani, the minister of oil of Saudi Arabia, declared that the monarchy had decided to alter its oil policy radically. The Saudis stopped protecting oil prices, and Saudi Arabia quickly regained its share in the world market. During the next six months, oil production in Saudi Arabia increased fourfold, while oil prices collapsed by approximately the same amount in real terms.
As a result, the Soviet Union lost approximately $20 billion per year, money without which the country simply could not survive.
[The Soviet leadership was then faced with three options: start charging hard currency for oil exports, reduce food imports, or cut back military spending. None of them were seriously considered.]
Unable to realize any of the above solutions, the Soviet leadership...started to borrow money from abroad while its international credit rating was still strong. It borrowed heavily from 1985 to 1988, but in 1989 the Soviet economy stalled completely....The Soviet Union then received a final warning from the Deutsche Bank and from its international partners that the funds would never come from commercial sources. Instead, if the Soviet Union urgently needed the money, it would have to start negotiations directly with Western governments about so-called politically motivated credits.
....When the situation in the Soviet Union is examined from financial and hard currency perspectives, Gorbachev's policies at the time are much easier to comprehend (see figure 6). Government-to-government loans were bound to come with a number of rigid conditions. For instance, if the Soviet military crushed Solidarity Party demonstrations in Warsaw, the Soviet Union would not have received the desperately needed $100 billion from the West.
The only option left for the Soviet elites was to begin immediate negotiations about the conditions of surrender. Gorbachev did not have to inform President George H. W. Bush at the Malta Summit in 1989 that the threat of force to support the communist regimes in Eastern Europe would not be employed. This was already evident at the time. Six weeks after the talks, no communist regime in Eastern Europe remained.
Once it became clear that there would be no repeat of 1956 or 1968, every one of the Eastern bloc states seceded from Soviet control in short order and the Soviet empire was no more. Twas oil that killed the beast, not Star Wars.
