And what were they spending their money on? Trying to counter our Pershing II missiles? How about Star Wars?<quoted text>
That is so easy because during the 80's The Soviet govermnent spent more money than they really had and political and economic changes were takeing place and nothing could stop it
Ya know they staged a anti-ballistic missile test in the Kwajalein Atoll. They had it rigged that as soon as the missile warhead detected the laser, the warhead would explode. But the Rooskies thought we had a high powered laser that could destroy missile warheads and that freaked them out! Yep, Ronny bluffed the Rooskies.
