“By 1988, Ronald Reagan, who had famously branded the Soviet Union ‘an evil empire,’ was striding through Red Square arm-in-arm with Mikhail Gorbachev. Russians were pounding both men on the back. They had just signed the greatest arms reduction agreement in history — eliminating all Soviet SS-20s targeted on Europe, in return for removal of the Pershing and cruise missiles Reagan had deployed in Europe. … on the eve of the G-8 summit, Vladimir Putin has announced that Russia would re-target missiles on NATO. We must, he said, counter Bush’s decision to put anti-missile missiles in Poland and radars in the Czech Republic. Why are we doing this?”WorldNetDaily: Who lost Russia?
Reagan will be remembered for ending the cold war. Bush will be remembered for restarting it by funding the Russians with oil money, then provoking them into aiming their petrodollar-purchased, high-tech missiles at Europe, again. Did people really vote for this guy twice?
