He was a staunch anti-communist and committed to competing with the Soviets
from a position of strength. His victory in the 1980 presidential elections not only
marked the end of the post-Vietnam foreign policy "syndrome," which was often
criticized as an American weakness, but also ended all doubts in the American
mind that the U.S. needed to build up its military and strategic strength to deal
with the Soviets. Once again, Reagan's foreign policy centered on the U.S.Soviet

Nevertheless, the challenges posed by the People's Republic of China (PRC) to
Soviet foreign policy did not go away. In some ways they were even more
disturbing. For if the PRC no longer was seriously competing with the Soviets in
support of revolutionary liberation movements, it was still posing problems for
Moscow in the Third World by preaching self- development and stigmatizing the
Soviets as being just as imperialist as the West. Chinese maps showing great
areas of Soviet ...

The broad choice is between competitive policies, such as relying heavily on
counterforce to threaten Soviet nuclear forces, and cooperative ones, which
avoid threatening these forces. Which type of American policies is more likely to
achieve these results depends on a variety of factors, including whether
hardliners or moderates are controlling Soviet policy, the nature of the arguments
that competing Soviets use to support their policy prescriptions, the quality of
Soviet understanding ...

By allowing record emigration levels, the Soviets could be publicly seen to abide
by provisions set forth in the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and the
Helsinki Final Act of 1975.44 This was crucial since Moscow wished to conclude
the negotiations towards SALT 2 at a time when increased opposition to the
SALT process was gaining momentum in Washington itself.45 In short, the
dropout syndrome provided a vital link, reconciling several competing elements
in Soviet ...

The Japanese were presented publicly with competing Chinese and Soviet
treaties, each intended to exclude relations with the other power. Five years of
determined Japanese resistance to PRC attempts to use the peace treaty to
sabotage relations with the USSR had elicited no hint of compromise from the
Soviets on the allimportant territorial issue. The promise of Japanese
participation in Siberian development schemes had also come to naught due to
Chinese and American ...

In the days after the Kornilov rebellion, Lenin briefly admitted that the Bolsheviks
might be agreeable to creation of an all-socialist coalition Provisional
Government, one that excluded all “bourgeois liberals” from the cabinet, with the
understanding that the socialist coalition would then turn over power to the
soviets. By mid-September, though, Lenin and the Bolsheviks had fully
resurrected their demand for “All Power to the Soviets.” The Bolshevik press
began to call for a “second ...

However, these two nations continue strong CB defense programs to this date.
All the European countries and the United States have signed and ratified the
Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) and the CWC. The United States, having
an ample budget and competing with the Soviet Union, continued to develop a
retaliatory chemical weapons capability up to 1990, but its military and political
leadership did not believe in using CB weapons in other than a retaliatory
capability.

seriously the realist portrayal of the Soviet Union as a competing superpower
wracked by internal problems. Though he opposed all previous arms control
agreements, Reagan waxed with alarming enthusiasm about the hope of
eliminating entire classes of nuclear weapons.27 To the neocons, the U.S. was in
grave danger. Against conservative realists, they insisted that conventional
foreign policy factors were trivial compared to the cold war struggle for the world.

Endorsed by Clark, NSDD75 articulated three basic goals: To contain and over
time reverse Soviet expansionism by competing effectively on a sustained basis
with the Soviet Union in all international arenas—particularly in the overall
military balance and geographical regions of priority concern to the United States
. This will remain the primary focus of U.S. policy toward the USSR. To promote,
