Remember this one?
The Day After - 80's movie showing us what the day after a Soviet Nuclear attack would look like. 1983 to be exact. It coincided with a massive ramp in military spending as Reagan supossedly countered the failing & bankrupt "Evil Empire" (first time he used the phrase: 1983...).
There are no coincidences.
* Footnote: the final nail in the Soviet State coffin was their 10 year war in Afghanistan.
