"Mr. Dictator, tear down this wall!"
As the walls of dictators around the world collapse in 2011 from protests for freedom, we can look back at an important quote in history. "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" was the challenge from U.S. President Ronald Reagan to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall. On June 12, 1987, President Ronald Reagan spoke these historic words in West Berlin at the base of the Brandenburg Gate, near the Berlin wall.
Sunday, February 6, 2011 marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of late United States President Ronald Reagan, who served two terms in the White House during the 1980's. America's 40th president is remembered by many as the Great Communicator - and as the man who helped end the Cold War between the West and the Soviet Union. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union had a single-party political system dominated by the Communist Party until 1990.
"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"
"Mr. Dictator, tear down this wall!" is a quote inspired by the late United States President Ronald Reagan and the brave people of the world protesting for freedom. Dictators have fallen in Tunisia and Egypt. Who will be next?
