    Really? What about the US relations with modern Iran, North Korea and Cuba? The USA have no political demands to these states and do not prohibit American corporations to work there?

    China was in absolutely different situation when it switched to capitalism compared to the post-war USSR. Why should the US (with its monopoly on nukes and the biggest economy) let the post-war devastated USSR to keep control in the Eastern Europe, develop its nuclear program or tolerate the rot Soviet political system that collapsed on its own in a few decades?

      LOL. Like those regimes are willing and eager!

      They would tolerate it as long as it made them money. Just like they tolerated everything about the 1990's Russia.

      "We don't care if he is a bastard, as long as he is our bastard" I believe Henry Kissenger said that.

      Seriously, you are done Shamil. I will no longer respond to your posts in this thread. Go have a cup of tea.

        Great post form PP(est). I found this especially interesting-

        5. The arms race culminated in the agent Farewell incident which IMHO is the single defining moment of the cold war. It is amazing it hasn't got more attention. I trust Tom Hanks to follow up his Charlie Wilson's war with a movie about this.

        What else do you have on that?

          Lol. Present-day Iran and Cuba allowed in different Western corporations. They'll be happy to allow in the US corporations as well if they were not demanded to make political and military concessions in exchange. The North Korea does not mind to follow the path of China either, however, it is demaned to abandon its nuclear program, missiles projects and start political reforms.

          1990s Russia abandoned the idea of being political, ideological, military rival of the USA and withdrew all its troops from Eastern Europe and most of the former Soviet republics.

          You've broken my heart.
