On this day 30 years ago: Reagan says "tear down this wall"

The great Ronald Reagan made more history on June 12, 1987 when standing near the Berlin Wall, he declared to the ruler of the USSR
General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall![
Two years later the people of Berlin tore down that wall.
