American propaganda commercial from the peak of The Cold War, the early 1980's. This commercial featuring a young Newt Gingrich touts the concept of SDI - the Strategic Defense Initiative or "Star Wars". This concept was the brainchild of then U.S. President Ronald Reagan. Many credit the mere idea of SDI as having helped put an end to The Cold War, as the U.S.S.R. had spent too many rubles on all their nuclear warheads and did not want their power to be negated by a U.S. missile shield defense system.
