I'll add, analysts must shape expectations around several leadership scenarios. That's the sound of a sledgehammer knocking you out with my point.
Speaking for my hood, some arms controllers act like we're dealing w/ late USSR, and structure solutions around that fixed scenario. - by thedelphivision on Fri, 24 Nov 2017 22:08:36

#Finland build arms factory to #Gaddafi with #USSR during 80's.

We are in grave risk-I see NATO as the possible fuse. Arms race bankrupted the USSR. This time around will prob be us as we r in deep debt-a debt that didn't help Main St just bankers,Wall St,corporations - by HillaryGuess on Fri, 24 Nov 2017 14:26:02
bad feelings originate.. that and our willful destruction of the USSR by engaging them in an arms race that is currently bankrupting us - by tobeycakes on Fri, 24 Nov 2017 03:16:35
I'm reminded of the school of thought that suggested Reagan broke the USSR by forcing them to spend money they didn't have in the arms race.
Could Putin be using the same strategy to force a debt-laden West to waste a ton of money they don't have on ramping up military spending? - by bonker99 on Thu, 23 Nov 2017 22:02:51
When we were there, the professor was discussing with us how difficult it would be to make the USSR a trading partner..the ruble was weakening..the people referred to it as rubble...We sort of crushed the former Soviet Union with the arms race and then the theft - by tobeycakes on Thu, 23 Nov 2017 08:18:57

You're hopelessly confused on every level. Israel did not exist until after WWII & you've confused pragmatism & ideology. USSR supported Zionism/Israel from 1947-1953 with diplomacy at the UN, arms via CZ and antisemitism within the USSR. Break occurred 1954 - by jewssf on Wed, 22 Nov 2017 15:03:52
Yes, 1947-53 USSR supported Zionism in 1,2 or all of 3 ways, diplomatic at the UN, arms via then Czechoslovakia & antisemitism within the USSR - by jewssf on Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:48:02
Eventually, @RonaldReagan was strongly for nuclear strategic arms reduction, led by @BillyGraham who preached on the dangers of nuclear arms at the 1981 @UrbanaMissions conference; calling for de-escalation of tensions with USSR. By 1982, RR advocated reducing stockpiles by 80%. - by 2TVolts on Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:10:01

There was a short period when USSR helped Israel . It was the first state to officially recognize Israel and it exported arms to Israel. This came to an end when Israel got aligned with the US, inflaming Stalin's antisemitism which continued to grow up to his death. - by S_ergeyR_omanov on Wed, 22 Nov 2017 13:44:57
War is bad for business. Selling arms is good business. USA is the biggest arms pusher in the world. Wonder if they will suffer a similar fate as USSR...

Non aligned was a facade v maintained being pro USSR probably till 95 as v never developed our arms manufacturing capability & were dependant on Russians as d threat of releasing #Netaji was sufficient 2 send shivers down congress spines.Never gave nation its due. Now dislike gud - by amitabalaji on Mon, 20 Nov 2017 04:01:59
It was imperialism in every type of way tbh. Some successful industries Eastern European countries had a monopoly on were dismantled (Czech arms industry) in favor of whatever game down from the Soviet hierarchy. The USSR was always at the centre of commie trade - by mahadeyy on Sun, 19 Nov 2017 20:45:17
It should have been dismantled when the USSR came apart, but wasn't allowed to by the arms industry, far too useful for profit-making. - by Wolf_Seer on Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:09:04
Surely that's what US has been doing ever since disintegration of the USSR? Report from Iron Mountain, published in 1967 [an early precursor to Wikileaks?] postulated the need for continuing war as only means of keeping US economy healthy, arms sales being so vital to it. - by Wolf_Seer on Sun, 19 Nov 2017 13:43:33
