The Cold War was started by the now defunct Soviet Union after World War II ended.
The Soviet Union was 'Communist HQ' from the time of the original revolution in 1917 until it's collapse in 1991.
Throughout the decades of the Cold War, American Presidents took the damnable approach of 'detente' in one form or another which essentially legitimized the regime in Moscow, it took a patriot like Ronald Reagan to be elected President, and adopted the approach of "we win, they lose". And he delivered.
What you can't seem to comprehend is that the long post war struggle between the Soviet Union and the United States is what comprised the 'Cold War' and the fact that the Soviet system collapsed at the end of that struggle means that (pay close attention now) WE WON THAT CONFLICT.
Now any moron can spout about Communists here, and Communists there, and you're always going to have Communists scurrying about the globe just like cockroaches, but the Big Mama Cockroach (the Soviet Union) DIED, and you can try and paint it any way you want to, but history will not be changed just because you're crappin' your panties about Gorbachev living at the Presidio.
We may have a Marxist in the White House, but that is not the result of the Cold War ending on unfavorable terms to us. How about you just explaining to everyone just what the Hell you propose to do about this crisis of global communism that you speak of?

Please put on your thinking cap. I’m going to tell you something very important by asking a question.
Who writes the history books? Is it the winners or the losers?
Now look at the men who are behind this ‘history’ dvd.
Mikhail Gorbachev and Henry Kissinger and Ted Turner.
I’ll clarify, global communist, global socialist and global socialist.
Who won the cold war? Who is going to take their propaganda as the truth?
BTW every last one of these men want America disarmed. Gorbachev in 2005 said his benefactor country, the one that gave him his retirement home and global socialist NGO tax free, America, is sick because of our nuclear weapons.
What do you think of that? Can you comprehend what it means when the communists are writing our history for us, and putting their propaganda in the passive subversion that movies and television can create?
