1-24-08 Reagan Iran-Contra (cont’d) When John Poindexter testified that he didn’t discuss any of the Iran-Contra affairs with Reagan, any talk of impeachment vanished. p. 182-184 Iran-Contra was the biggest scandal of the Reagan administration. George H.W. Bush (1989-1992) Berlin Wall came down in ’89, and the flag was lowered in Red Square in ’91. As demonstrations began in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union began to collapse, the Soviet Union was forced to make a decision as to whether to gun them down and ship them to Siberia, or to tolerate them. Gorbachev decided not to kill people in cold blood, but instead they brought the Russian troops. p. 218 Dec. 25, 1991 – Soviet Union lowered it’s flag from Red Square and the Soviet Union was finished. China At the same time things were happening in Russia, rebellions and demonstrations were beginning to take place in China. In 1989, in Tianamen Square, China made the decision to not tolerate the demonstrations as the Russians had, but brought in tanks and quelled the rebellion, killing several hundred people, but keeping themselves in power.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
