Gorbachev and Reagan holding their watches:

Gorbachev and Reagan holding their watches In one of several summit meetings, top Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev (b. 1932) and President Ronald Reagan (b. 1911) met in Moscow in May 1988 in hopes of signing a Strategic Arms Reduction Talks (START) agreement. The "chemistry" of warm friendship that Reagan later claimed characterized his personal relationship with Gorbachev fell short of producing cuts in dangerous strategic weapons. But their cordial interaction encouraged the diplomatic dialogue that helped end the Cold War.

Persian Gulf oil fields:

Persian Gulf oil fields In the Persian Gulf War of early 1991, Operation Desert Storm forced Iraqi troops out of Kuwait. Much of that nation's oil industry was destroyed by bombs and the retreating Iraqis, who torched oil facilities as they left. Oil wells burned for months, darkening the sky over these American forces and causing environmental damage. (Bruno Barbey/Magnum Photos, Inc.)
