Many Americans also feared that Reagan's conservative, Cold War ideology would only lead to war. In addition, American occupation forces failed to stop widespread repression—even lynchings—of Palestinian residents in Kuwait immediately after liberation from Iraq.

In East Asia, the nature of military ties with China will need further definition. Gorbechev initiated so many reforms that within three or four years after Reagan left office, the Soviet Union collapsed and disintegrated into individual states, effectively ending the Cold War.
