¨Since the collapse of the Berlin Wall, it should be clear to people of average intelligence, that the Russian threat was always greatly exaggerated by our military industrial complex in order to feed that beast at the maximum possible rate. It is unfortunate that so many of our citizens and millions of innocents worldwide were sacrificed to that beast, under entirely false pretenses.
The same cannot be said for China, not because of its, military strength but because that strength ultimately depends on a countries manufacturing capabilities.¨ #7 | POSTED BY BAYVIKING
As a victim of the Prague Spring, still have memories of Soviet tanks rolling in, I disagree with your first part. The menace was real and I strongly believe NATO saved Western Europe. Not a Reagan fan but he was correct in naming the Soviet Union the evil empire.
Agree on China.
