Nut, it is best to stay silent on issues one has no ideas about.
You see I happen to have lived in a Communist country in 1980s. I know from first hand experience how it was, and what Reagan did. We finally felt like we had a friend, like if we push we won't be ignored.
I would explain more, but I have a feeling it is useless. People like you, who haven't any grasp of reality, want to undermine Reagan simply because he doesn't fit your narrative.
