How do you think President Ronald Reagan would have handled the atrocities committed by Islam?

After all, he re-united Germany and dismantled the USSR.

And brought an unpresidented Pride and prosperity to America, after Carter's misguided ideology nearly destroyed us.

  • i don't think he could handle it any differently. the USSR and Germany situations were very different. it was a situation that was headed for change

    the problem with terrorism, ISIS and the instability in the mid-east stems from a true cultural war that is something that has to be solved on an international level and working to somehow find some sort of compromise or mending of fences between two massively different cultures.

    Reagan had is own mid-east issues that were never resolved evidenced by the instability in the region in the early 90s that George HW Bush inherited during his presidency

    i think reagan showed how he'd handle it. he like so many previous leaders attempted to find and put in power leaders who he thought could stabilize the region

    • President Reagan recognized and difinitaly dealt with what were the problems of the time. The Cold War had been brewing since the end of WWII, and the comunists had designs on every country in their spare of in infuence and more - Cuba! Ronny bitch slapped them into submission. Radical politics are a religion, like Islam , but one of greatest Presidents had the balls to stay tr. u to his convictions and see them through.

    • he escalated the issues in the Mideast. did nothing to calm them. Al-Qaeda developed directly as a result of his policies.

      as multiple people said here USSR did not fold because of Reagan, they were going to fold regardless as Gorbachev was pushing the country out of communism.

    • Reagan purposely out spent them into bankruptcy - the hard liners feared him

  • He didn't truly re-unite germany or dismantle the USSR. both of those things were from years and years of build up. people tend to forget that the effects we see from a president usually don't come around until AFTER they are in office. that and Germany was bound to reunite and the USSR was bound to fail because of their poor economy that russia is still dealing with today, and their horrible policies towards their people. eventually China will follow the same route.. well reforming socially at least.

  • Germany was reunited beginning on 9 November 1989 and the USSR collapsed in 1991. George H. W. Bush was president on both dates.

    The amount of Obama paranoia on this board is ridiculous.

    America has been bombing Syria and Iraq every day for nearly two years. Its troops were in Iraq until 15 December 2011 before that. It bombs Afghanistan every day. It has special forces in these places and Libya and Somalia and goodness knows where.

    The common threads are, gaggers and gagettes: (1) The Armed Forces United States of America; (2) The Commander-in-Chief of said forces, Barack Obama; (3) the radical Islamic zombies being sent to meet their 72 virgins (and 72 mothers-in-law) every day.

    • Bush 41 wasn't instrumental in either. Ever hear of Rachivoic

  • Well considering he is the reason Al-Queda exists not very well

    • Who is the reason Ai-Queda EXISTED

    • OBL, right?

    • No, Reagan was the one who gave the mujah the funding, they wanted to arm them against the soviets (Who were already losing pretty bad, entire soviet regiments were defecting to the afghans, and the soviet union was already dying in the late 70s due to losing the most important part of the war, the war of soft power and economics.) So, of course it collapsed, and then the mujah formed Al-Queda with the weapons and funding,
      Then add to the fact that Reagan decided to negotiate with terrorists and give a fuckload of weapons to iran to try and get them to use connections to release 8 americans held in a COMPLETELY different part of the middle east that were sympathetic to iran.
      Reagan is the reason we are in the mess in the middle east

  • He didn't dismantle Russia. Gorbechov was like option 6 on an already collapsing regime. It's like talking credit of cutting down a tree that's been 95% chopped by a beaver

    Hard to say anything positive would come off it considering he basically was the founding father of al queda 😑

  • He sold arms to Iran, supported the Mujahideen, surrendered to Islamic terrorists in Lebanon, sold arms to Saudi Arabia, and was hostile towards Israel.

  • Ronald Regan was not a very good president and I doubt he would have the nuance to deal with radical Islam.

    Starting a "War on Islam" is the exact opposite of how to win since that just radicalize them further and supplies them with manpower and resources. You need a combination of undercover operations without outright conflict and to win the "hearts and minds" of normal Muslims to eradicate "radical Islam".

    • It probably would have never come to fruition. What happened to our "so called" leaders?

    • al-quaeda exists because of the actions of Reagan and presidents in the 70s. ISIS exists because of Bush's fruitless war in Iraq after 9/11

      obama has killed more suspected terrorist than any other president in history, and again all terrorists that he didn't have a hand in creating but rather an attempt to clean up what was left on his plate

    • @madhatters4 poppycock

  • Hmm he probably would heavily invade again

  • He would kicked ass. That pathetic excuse of a President we have now is afraid of his own shadow. Obama is far and away the worst President we've ever had or hope to have.

    • They would have been too scared to have to face President Reagan, just like the Ayatollah Khomeini on the 444th day of of the embassy hostages. No coincidence that was the day Reagan took office. I truly believe that Obama will go down in history as one of the worst US Presidents, whereas Reagan is among the top five spot. in many poles. Is this the kind of country we wan't?
