How Reagan Thatcher Pope John Paul II Won Cold War > > > < < <
We may never know all the truth but this account by an aid to Thatcher is a very interesting read.
John Browne's account claims that a plan was hatched to outspend Russia in order to be able to better compete and win the Cold War. Star Wars, gold, oil all played important roles.
The parties involved determined the weaknesses of the Russian economy. They determined that most of their strength and income came from Gold and Oil.
"Remember the 2nd prong in bankrupting the Soviets, reducing their Foreign Exchange income? The first step on that was to determine where the Soviets income mostly came from. It turned out to be Oil and Gold. Then Browne said that this is where the CIA came in, they in a very sophisticated manner went around the world and manipulated markets to drive down the price of both Oil and Gold. Remember where Oil and Gold were when Reagan took over? They were in the neighborhood of $30 a barrel and $500 an ounce. Both fell dramatically under Reagan. As Browne made this and other points I would look across the patio and look at Mrs. Casey and Al Haig and both would be nodding in agreement with Browne's points."
By outspending Russia they precipitated the collapse of the Soviet Empire and won the Cold War.
