1) the hysteria around the establishment of an electronic anti missile shield during the Reagan admin that the media called " star wars" to mock it was the beginning of the end for communism. The Commie leaders learned that the best of their technology was a shadow of the american technology

2) the Israeli invasion of Lebanon - many of the 72 planes the Israelis shot down were manned by russian pilots. The Commies only shot down one planeand the arabs dragged and kicked his body through the streets

3) to cement the death of communism was the failed atempt to invade afghanistan by the UUSr and the spectacle of military might by the US in Gulf War.

Of course the US media took all credit for the fall of communism.

Obambi will be a disaster for the US as was jimmy carter - Romney in 2012!!!
