"Mr. Gorbachev - tear down this wall." - Ronald Reagan, Berlin, 1987

Follow by Email
A short clip of the amazing speech which helped end the Cold War. Given by US President Ronald Reagan in Berlin, Germany at the Brandenburg Gate on June 12, 1987 (commemorating the 750th anniversary of Berlin) - "Tear down this wall!" was the challenge issued to Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev to destroy the Berlin Wall. Reagan challenged Gorbachev, who was then the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, to tear it down as an emblem of Gorbachev's desire to increase freedom in the Eastern Bloc through glasnost ("transparency") and perestroika ("restructuring") .

Edgehead10075 : I don't agree with President Reagan on everything, but I give him credit for weapons reduction and for winning the Cold War. (Even arch-liberal Ted Kennedy gave credit to Reagan.) Reagan was a decent man.

JeffGR4 : Gorbachev's reforms ended the Cold War, more so than a struggling U.S.S.R. trying to compete militarily against the United States.

15DudeAwesome : Reagan Sleepy.....

Daniel Gone Guitar : cancer in my ass, i'm back. Cancer in my nose, I'm back!

fakename : Oh really? So that's why people making less than 10,000 dollars decreased by .5% while those making over $75,000 increased by 5.5%? So that's why there was a net increase of 21 million jobs? So that's why the misery index dropped 10 points during his administration (the 2nd highest drop at the point in the 20th century)? I'm tired of stupid an ignorant liberals like you making emotional and stupid assumptions without any factual basis. You just say shit the liberal media has trained you to feel.

Viper2026 : isn't being an actor essentially the same as being a professional liar? not really a desirable trait for a president...

Bakorafanboy13 : I will always have doubts about the intelligence of a man who deems anything completely evil. Also Star Wars really that's what he chose to call it. Either way at least he promoted the "American way" until the Cold War ended. Excuse me if I prefer glasnost and peristioka to reaganomics

Alex Hoster : @rbradaigh think about it, the billionaires typically own businesses, those businesses provide jobs, at least the working man had a job!

Alex Hoster : @rbradaigh think before you talk idiot! The billionaires provide jobs to working men! If he didnt support them they'd go over to china! And thats what happened after he was done being president! Use your brain! Idiot!

ar jl : Russia went broke trying to keep up with us why?... Because of Reagan's massive military spending. He may not have been the best president, but he certainly was a hugely popular one.

Russ Brady : The mush brain imbecile had nothing to do with ending the cold war. Russia went broke trying to keep up with us. Howdy Doody Reagan was a drooling idiot who screwed the working man and enriched his Billionaire cronies.
