The decade's most triggering comedy
Nixon goes to China and in a masterstroke of diplomacy turns a two-power Cold War into three-power triangular diplomacy. But before anything meaningful can come from it, Watergate destroys the administration and reduces American morale to its lowest point during the entire conflict. The Soviet perception of American weakness leads to their invasion of Afghanistan quickly becoming a quagmire like the one America emerges from in Vietnam. It is against this backdrop that America's oldest President brings youthful vigor, renewed optimism and a plan to resolve the forty-year running stalemate and end the Cold War with a win.
