What symbolized the end of the Cold War?
The fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989 symbolized the end of the Cold War, the collapse of European Communist governments and graphically ended the Iron Curtain divide of Europe.
"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall"!!! Ronald Reagan June 12, 1987

If someone had said say 5 years before it happened, that the Wall would come down and Communism would fail they might have been derided.

Rainer Wetjen, Carroll said "never posed a military threat to the United States". I think that is true. Ideological opposition, yes, but actual military threat, no!

He already has. It circles the White House. He still has use of the bunker in case he feels threatened.

Carroll Price, I lived in Berlin at that time. There was nothing imaginary about the threat of the former Soviet Union!

The old Soviet Union, which was an ally in WW2, never posed a military threat to the United States. As such, the Cold War was a totally contrived event similar to the War on Terror that replaced it. Beginning in the late 1930s (to escape the Great Depression) the economy of the United States became increasingly dependent on huge defense spending outlays that require real or imaginary enemies created when and as needed.
