bdub77: Hey we played this game a while ago, Russia. It was called the Cold War, and the West won.

But good luck going down this path again. Enjoy your bread lines and Tartar terrorists.


Just because we outlasted the Soviet Union's Financial ability to continue to be a stain on the face of the earth, doesn't mean that we "Won". If anything we lost because we never got the hint that maintaining a militaristic posture forever is detrimental to our society. We're going to lose in the same way, just take longer to implode.

Eh no, the West didn't win. The Soviet Union picked up the ball and went home, through no action or influence of the West.

Well, we sort of did.

See, Clinton did a decent amount of force reduction, abandoned the 1000 ship Navy concept (thank god, raw numbers is a stupid way to base a navy), did a hefty amount of base closures, etc. etc.

No, the problem is Clinton got the ball rolling and then Bush not only stopped it, he reversed course.

I think it would be more accurate to say they mismanaged their teams resources until they all collapsed of starvation on the field.  Less pick up more fall down.  But I agree the actual influence of the West is VASTLY overstated.
