Abstract

Twenty-one years ago, in 1956, Nikita Khrushchev, First Secretary of the Party, directed the folowing warning to the Western democratic states: 'Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury YOU.' Since Khrushchev directed this brutally straightforward warning to the Western World that it is the Soviet Union's long-range foreign policy objective to dominate the entire world, the Kremlin has ferociously striven towards the attainment of this goal. Thus all steps, all action and all planning by the Kremlin during the past few decades have formed part of a diabolical and merciless plan to overthrow capitalism during 'the second half of the twentieth century'
