   It would have been necessary _in_ _the_ _interest_ of winning the
war to produce a different leadership. One that is not alienating the
soviet peoples themselves by "transferrring" whole nations to Siberia
or Kazakhstan, a leadership that is not trying to emulate the
autocratic Czars and their expansionism but one reknitting with
Lenin's revolutionary legacy and spreading liberation.

   That is the meaning of the political revolution.
