It was the pressure applied by every administration from Truman through Reagan that was necessary to the fall of the USSR in 1989.

Total nonsense. The Nazi Wehrmacht invaded the USSR, surrounded Stalingrad and pounded it into rubble, yet the Soviets didn't surrender.

The USSR collapsed due to its own corruption and fiscal mismanagement.
