Who would have dared to seriously proclaim the Cold War would just end, just like that? No bullet fired, no bombs dropped. The biggest weapons arsenal in human history, all useless. The biggest political, strategical and ideological conflict in human history and it ends like a usual day in a museum, when the waiter simply turns off the lights. Decades of propaganda on both sides, decades of hate and fear and all that remains is the man with the mop sending the last visitor home.
