There are many events worthy of our recognition but
some will be remembered for many years to come. Fifty
years from now, every person in the world should
remember the year in which the Soviet Empire
collapsed. The Soviet Union was one of the most
dangerous and most feared of all the countries in the
world during the time it existed. The Soviet Union was
the largest country in the world because of all the
republics it had within it.
The collapse of the Soviet Union will always be
remembered because it was a country that was very
dangerous. It was like that because just about all of
the men that ruled and controlled the Soviet Union
were heavy drinkers and they would not be at their
best judgment when doing things and because of that
they could cause a lot of damage, conflict, and war to
many other countries.
The end of the Soviet Union will be remembered also
because it had such a great impact on all its
republics. The Soviet Union was not a horrible place
though as it helped all the poor countries stay strong
since they were united as one union. Instead of being
a whole bunch of third world countries, their unity in
communism did work at keeping the people safe. For
example Yugoslavia was around as on nation back then
because of communism but once the collapse of
communism Yugoslavia broke apart.
Why many people feared the USSR, the Union of Soviet
Socialists Republic, or CCCP, USSR spelled in Russian,
was because the fact that a lot of missiles would
frequently disappear from the missile silos that
belonged to the Soviet Union, and because of this it
shows that the Soviet Union wasn\'t to safe of a
country to live in and that the people there weren\'t
easily trusted so other countries near the borders of
the Union could be in great danger.
I think that the Soviet Union was a great republic and
that if it did still exist now it would or at least
may have been close to being a better country than
what many people think of it as what it was like in
the communist party days. If Joseph Stalin never died
and Boris Yelstin never took control the USSR may
still have existed now. The question that is the most
provoking to me is what the Soviet Union would have
been like know? Would it be a peaceful country or
would it be worse than it was before?
