26 years ago on November 9: Fall of the Berlin Wall

It was thanks to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev that this symbol of division fell.
In my view, one of the greatest statesmen of our times – unfortunately never supported by exploited by a triumphalist, winner-takes-it-all West.

Those of us who remember those days and went down to hammer down that Wall can never ever forget!

November 1989 was the best opportunity of our times to have created a better world. Short-sighted policies and politicans not reaching Gorbachev to the knees intellectually created the crises that we see today in Ukraine and elsewhere.

Europe today could have been such a fabulous place. Tragic. Tragic.

Interesting too?  Is the US suddenly slightly more reconciliatory in tone?

JO
