Interesting article well worth your time about how Stalin and the Saudis won the Cold War. Considering that it's by a major figure in the early Yeltsin governments, it's also delightfully snarky:

The shortest quotation about the intellectual capacity of the Soviet leadership came from the Politburo minutes: "Mr. Zasiadko has stopped binge drinking. Resolution: nominate Mr. Zasiadko as a minister to Ukraine."
