World Strategic Survey

Strategic Survey Today

State of the War 2006
Which countries are red, and which are not? This is the first regularly-updated (and long overdue) review of the international Communist revolution to appear in two decades. (Updated 10/2/05)

Strategic Survey — History

In the wake of World War I, Communist revolution spread like wildfire. Almost two dozen nations quaked as governments toppled and chaos multiplied. This is the strategic picture at a moment when the Communists almost thought they would take the whole world at once.
When the first wave of revolution died out in 1924, the Communists realized they would have to try again later. They needed a new crisis, but World War II was still far off. This strategic snapshot of the world in 1930 shows the calm before the storm.
World War II began with the open Nazi-Soviet alliance attacking Europe in all directions. For a while, the Communists and their National Socialist proxies were able to extend revolutionary chaos from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Here’s the strategic picture that made them so optimistic.
The 1940s began with the German Nazi regime squarely allied with the Soviet Union, working together to spread revolution throughout Europe. By the end of the decade, plans had disintegrated and the action had moved to Asia, as we show in this strategic snapshot.
The 1950s yielded almost as many losses as gains for the Soviets while their ambitions to revive World War II ended. Here we present the world strategic picture that forced the Communists to reinvent their strategy.
When the 1960s opened, the Communists were gearing up for the Big War; by the end of the decade, they were backing off to rework the plan. This is the picture of the gains — and major losses — that helped change their mind.
World revolution actually looked imminent during the 1970s as the Communists captured dozens of nations around the globe. This was the grim strategic picture as of 1980, shortly before the rising tide of morality.
With the world revolution slowing to a crawl, it was no wonder the frustrated Communist Bloc had to “renew” itself in 1989-91. In the conflict between red and white, these were the gains and losses during the 1980s.
Where were the front lines between red and white just a few years ago? Here’s how the world changed during the 1990s — miraculously, far less than the Communists had hoped.

Strategic Survey — Future Projection

International Communism is today at its height of power — and its most dangerous instability. They won’t wait much longer be­fore striking with their long-planned tidal wave of revolution, but the outcome isn’t so predictable. Here’s our projection of how things will look in the near future.
The storm clouds of World War III are gathering now, but in just a few short years the world will be completely transformed, even unrecognizable. Here’s a peek at the post-war era, in the aftermath of Communism’s final annihilation.
Jewish tradition alludes to two stages in the world’s turning to theocracy in the post-World War III era. This is our projection of the second phase, after the restoration of the Israeli kingdom and the rebuilding of the Jerusalem Temple.
