National Review;5/29/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 10, p604
The article reflects on the possible scenarios that would lead to the collapse of the Soviet Union as of 1981. It argues that Communism would continue to expand worldwide unless the Soviet system itself collapses. It assesses the implications of the unrest and opposition to Soviet domination by the Poles for the stability of the Soviet satellite states. It warns on the threat posed by the anti-Communist activities in Poland to the Soviet Union. It also describes the dilemma being faced by the Soviet Union should it orders a nuclear strike or an invasion of Poland.
