You didn't have any comprehension problems when you replied to the same post that I did...
And imo, the collapse of the Soviet Union (a mortal threat to the US) was important enough that I wouldn't change a thing in that regard even knowing what I know now.
Do you think the collapse of the USSR should be credited to Jimmy Carter for his incredibly bold move to boycott the 1980 Olympics?
Post we both replied to in bold. I replied with my not understanding how the USA's support in Afghanistan v USSR had anything to do with the USSR's collapse.
You replied with a super funny post
