  • 11:30 One of the reasons for restructuring was that Soviet Ambassors were shocked that every supermarket they went to in the USA was very well stocked with food. In the USSR the shelves would only be well-stocked for a visit from Ambassors from the USA. They were shocked that such abundance was genuine and not faked!

  • Never pit your weakness against your enemy's strength. Our strength was our much larger economy. The Soviets had no choice but to match us in missile defense, and they went broke trying. We could afford SDI -- they couldn't. Reagan knew this because he'd been saying in public speeches since the 60's that the Soviet system was inherently weak economically and if we confronted them rather than appeased them they'd collapse. Then he became President and did exactly that. He is why we won the Cold War.
