 Archives of Rudolph W. Giuliani - Reagan Lecture, Ronald Reagan Presidential Library
Ronald Reagan always understood the basic fact of the Cold War-that when two victorious armies met in Germany in 1945, one, the Allied army, was willing to go home and leave the people it had liberated in freedom.
Ronald Reagan knew that for the West to win the Cold War, it would have to rediscover its confidence; it had to be galvanized around the principle of freedom, the expansion of freedom for people-whether you've met them or know them or whether you don't.
The principles which guided Ronald Reagan through the final years of the Cold War are just as valid today-support for freedom, opposition to tyrants, and prudence in the exercise of the power of the United States.
