Abstract:

The end of the Cold War was a great triumph for the United States, her allies and the people who suffered under the Soviet grip. The war was long and expensive in both national treasures and treasured human life. Some revisionist arguments and 20-20 hindsight forecasters have insisted that the costs were too high since the downfall of the Soviet empire was inevitable regardless of the battles we fought. It is not that the socialist empire failed the people, but more that Communism as a system was simply bad business that failed to prosper and provide. The dwindling number of Communist nations and other oppressive states are beginning to understand the ineffectiveness of their systems and the ensuing social chaos apt to follow. It has become more apparent than ever that hungry, mistreated people will only take so much abuse before they explode. Within the international geo-political- environment, social chaos is leading to increased instability throughout more and more regions Eastern Europe and the former Soviet republics are suffering the problems of post-Soviet control, ethnic strife and unsettling nationalism. Southeast Asias difficulties include the domination of two Communist nations China and North Korea, racial strife, populatton explosions and economtc competition. The Afincan continent suffers from catastrophic populatton growth, famine, tribal wars, disease and oppressive leadership.
