It was allmost a black and white world without any grey.
You just had to chose your side/camp. Pretty easy. Nowadays, it's very different. Everybody is allied with everybody, but also, everybody is the
ennemy of allmost everybody. What a new world order !!!
In fact, it's a new world disorder.
I'm really happy that communism have been defeated ( unfortunately, not completely ), but sometimes, I would like to go back in time, when things
were so clears.
Also, we didn't have any NBC threat as we have now. It's true that former Varsaw Pact nations were helping many terrorist networks (
communist/socialist terrorists ), but at least, those terrorist had not any NBC weapons and we were able to count on the Soviets to stop them when
they were trying to go to far in their terrorist actions.
And before I forget....I HATE GORBATCHEV !
