I work with people from all over the planet — every continent and almost every country.
Not a single one of them credits Ronald Reagan with the collapse of the Soviet Union.
I lived in (not as a tourist) a former Soviet Republic. Twice. No one there credited Ronald Reagan with the collapse of the Soviet Union.
I visited Gdansk. I didn’t see any monument to Ronny.
But this freaking meme will not die.
Even Gorbachev and liberal historians agree that Reagan was the driving force behind ending the cold war. Why would you want to deny it? So strange to me.
Completely unsourced and untrue. I lived with people who lived through it. I didn’t just visit them or read some book. I lived with them.
What nonsense this woman spews. She doesn’t even know what she is talking about.
On The New Hour tonight, West Germans admitted that while they paid for reunification monetarily, the people of East Germany paid in other ways, painful ways.
I will always remember my colleagues. There were some good aspects of their system. Ones that they missed. Before independence, women weren’t assaulted. Just go and search you tube for Russian prisons. And now parts of the former Soviet Union have “leaders for life” — that’s progress if you don’t care about the people who live under those rulers — or don’t even know where those places are.
