The Protracted Conflict

Crozier, Brian
June 1980
National Review;6/13/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 12, p712
The article analyzes the role of military men in politics. The advent of a leftist anti-Yanqui military government in Peru led the Kremlin's ideologists to rethink of their position. The penetration of the armed forces became a strategy for the revolutionary seizure of power. The interminable colonial wars in Portugal were bound to imperil the post-Salazar regime. Trouble results from the forced spending of more than half of what the country earns. The Portugese Armed Forces Movement was not a Communist organization. Communist Party leader Alvaro Cunhal kept his Kremlin masters well informed. The Communists overplayed their hand in November 1975 and their plan to seize power misfired.
