I will give a medal! What do you believe was the most important factor in the U.S. victory in the cold war? Which president contributed the most to ending the conflict? If you were the president of the United States during the cold war, what would you have done differently?

    I guess the biggest reason was the economy. Ronald Reagan was credited as being the president who brought an end to the cold war; But people also say it was Gorbachev as well. During the mid 1980s, Gorbachev knew that the Soviet Union could not advance economically by having 20 percent of gross national product and 40 percent of its deficit-ridden budget to military spending. in addition the soviet war in Afghanistan, and the losses sustained by it, may have further contributed to the fall of the Soviet Union. Knowing this, it would make sense for the U.S. to increase military spending to put further strain on the soviet economy.

    Can you help me with this one? From the perspective of a congressional representative in 1961, write a statement to your constituents. Your statement should either support or oppose President Kennedy’s decision to send a man to the moon. Please include the following information in your journal entry: State your decision to either support or oppose the President’s request for more money for NASA. Defend your decision by giving your constituents reasons for your support or opposition to space exploration. You may use evidence from the previous lesson or from your own research.

    First of all would you support his decision or be against it?
