So She Kept Freedom From Half of Europe and Had to Be Torn Down?

A.F. Branco, 4/9/13:
You might have heard that the Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact allies fell because of glasnost, or perestroika, or Gorbachev, or even Lech Walesa's Solidarity union. You might have thought that the people of those countries, in peacefully changing their governments, were really responsible.

Nope. It was the Prime Minister of an unrelated country, who lost her job before the USSR finally fell, that was entirely responsible.
