    True, Reagan did increase the size of the military, spent billions on national defense, and fought Communists in Latin America. Reagan told a national audience, "When our citizens are attacked or abused anywhere in the world on the direct orders of hostile regimes, we will respond so long as I'm in this office. The conversation reveals Honecker's deep ideological concerns, and his understanding of the geostrategic realities in Central Europe. Peter Hammond, a Christian missionary who lived in Angola at the time, recalled: "There were over 50, Cuban troops in the country. Carter believed in the rule of law in international affairs and in the principle of self-determination for all people. The Republican majority in the Senate voted 89—4 on a resolution condemning apartheid.

    Except for security-related matters, most foreign affairs issues involved economic interests and mainly attracted the attention of the specific groups affected. Reagan supported anti-communist groups around the world. The conversation reveals Honecker's deep ideological concerns, and his understanding of the geostrategic realities in Central Europe. By kicking Gromyko upstairs, Gorbachev opened a key position-Minister of Foreign Affairs — where he wanted to place his close ally, whom he already knew shared his reformist thinking on both international and domestic policy. The bulk of the discussion here concerns human rights issues, including an interesting exchange about the Vienna follow-up meeting on the Helsinki Final Act.

    Considering that more than 20 million North Koreans continue to live in terrible hardship today because of that decision only compounds the mistake. If you prefer your presidents to talk tough, Harry Truman might be your man; if you prefer a more modest and less partisan figure, Dwight Eisenhower might float your boat. Foreign Policy: — Summary Foreign Policy: — When Reagan became President he had only one well-defined foreign policy goal: containing the Soviet Union, or the "evil empire" as he once referred to it. It appears to be only a matter of time before such economic power would be translated into greater political power. This shift resulted from efforts by LDP politicians to align various local interests in mutually advantageous arrangements in support of LDP candidates. Without any doubt, Ronald Reagan's policies saved many tens of thousands of lives in Angola.

The most notorious of the programs Reagan invested in was the Strategic Defense Initiative SDImore commonly known as the Star Wars program in reference to the popular s science fiction film trilogy.

The surprise did come inthough, when Mikhail Gorbechev became the leader of the Soviet Union and actively sought both political and economic reform in the USSR as well as an easing of tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union. The e-book also includes the transcripts of Shevardnadze's remarkable first conversations with his American counterparts, George Shultz in the Reagan administration and James Baker in the George H.

Not surprisingly, these talks quickly failed because the language of the talks demanded that the USSR significantly reduce its nuclear arsenal, but allow the US to continue building its arsenal.

The military increased production of nuclear arms and deployed them throughout the Western world. Gorbechev initiated so many reforms that within three or four years after Reagan left office, the Soviet Union collapsed and disintegrated into individual states, effectively ending the Cold War.
