Original message Did Reagan really "defeat" the Soviet Union?
Conservatives have constantly used Reagan's military buildup back in the 80s, along with the Afghanistan debacle and the Star Wars program as a reason to why the Soviet Union collapsed. Is there really any truth to this? I've always been under the impression that the Soviet system was always fundamentally flawed and was inevitably going to collapse, even without American influence.
Answers are the standard Hate Raygun variety...:D
