The Communist revolutionary movement is a threat to the United States because its avowed purpose is to bring about the overthrow of the American socio-political system--and because modern Communist leaders have demonstrated an unrelenting intent to use all of their skill in pursuance of this purpose. One of the most important strategies which the Communists have employed to attain their goal if the National Liberation Movement. It is the objective of this paper to explain the National Liberation Movement as a Soviet strategy--its development as a concept, its goals, it application, and its threat to the United States. The National Liberation Movement is now a major element of the foreign policy of Communist China as well as the Soviet Union. However, since the Soviet Union poses by far the greater military threat to the American homeland, it was considered preferable to examine the Soviet approach in depth. Therefore, this paper deals almost exclusively with the Soviet theory and doctrine of the National Liberation Movement. The Chinese viewpoint is mentioned only briefly.
