    They were highly unlikely to be awed by Saint Reagan's empty rhetoric, feel intimidated or feel they had to unfurl the white flag of surrender because the United States increased its defense budget by 5 percent annualized.

    The fall of the USSR was engineered and fueled internally by dissatisfied citizens of the USSR, by historic nationalism, and by the tides of internal forces and tensions which had nothing to do with the doddering old fool Saint Reagan
    and just as the people were about to taste freedom the republican party of the United states spewed hate all over Gorbachev in his relection and backed the Drunken sod Yeltsen. They pretended that Gorby was moving too slow ( he in fact was moving slowly to sell off the government assets to WORTHY buyers in stead of want to be Oligarchs). With the Republican backing the Sloppy Drunk Yeltson won the election.

    then he slobbered around for a few years while Oligarchs bought up all the governments assets and he handed the whole thing over to the KGB ( the Old name for the GRU) slime bag Putin.


    and a decade and a half later here we are

    Yes, Economic shock therapy and wholesale privatization was an epic blunder, That kind of unrestrained capitalism turned Russia into a failed state and undoutedly helped set the stage for a return to an authoritarian government.

    The only things I give Yeltsin credit for is preventing the hardline communists from coming back to power (Which was a very real possibility) - and by Russian standards, his commitment to a free press and a multi party representative democracy
