  Temperament in Revolution: Gorbachev   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Gorbachev was promoted by Andropov to second in command and in effect directed the business of Politburo a great deal of the time because of the sicknesses of Andropov and Chernenko.
Gorbachev did exactly what he had done before he had attained power, except he had the preceived power to do anything he wanted because he was the leader of the Soviet Union: in effect the Czar of Russia.
Gorbachev replaced the most obvious ageing members of the Politboro with younger people that were open to reform.

 TIME 100: Mikhail Gorbachev
Writing about Gorbachev — who he was, where he came from, what he was after, and what his personal stake was (there had to be one) became just as intriguing as trying to figure out what Russia's future would be.
How Gorbachev left power and what he has done since are unique episodes in Russian history, but he could have foreseen his own resignation: he prepared the ground and the atmosphere that made that resignation possible.
Gorbachev is such an entirely political creature, and yet so charismatic, that it's hard to come to any conclusions about him as a person.

Gorbachev and the former Soviet Union (FSU) -- evidenced, among other things, by the skewed agendas of the last two economic summits -- has given way to grousing and finger-pointing when it comes to aiding the new CIS member states.
Gorbachev's dramatic failure to undertake a systemic economic reform program that will be seen as both his undoing and that of the Soviet people.
Gorbachev pursued single-mindedly the continued modernization and expansion of the already bloated Soviet military-industrial complex; remained determined to maintain an outmoded global empire of costly client-states; and committed himself only to unworkable economic half-measures designed to preserve the existing centrally-controlled economic system.

From Gorbachev, the Syrian leadership should borrow the realism of adapting to the facts of a changed world, and respond by initiating radical economic and political reforms from the top.
Gorbachev used the Communist Party Congress in 1986 to launch extensive reforms that opened up the political system and restructured it economically (perestroika and glasnost).
Somewhere between the Gorbachev and Gaddafi experiences is a realistic route for a Syrian renaissance, continued regime incumbency, better policies for Syrians as a whole, and affirmation of legitimate international legal standards and principles.

In the early 1980s he accompanied Mikhael Gorbachev, who at the time was the Soviet official in charge of agriculture on his tour of Canada.
The purpose of the visit was to tour Canadian farms and agricultural institutions in the hopes of taking lessons that could be applied in the Soviet Union, however, the two renewed their earlier friendship and, tentatively at first, began to discuss the need for liberalisation in the Soviet Union.
Two weeks after the visit, as a result of Gorbachev's interventions, Yakovlev was recalled from Canada and appointed to head the Academy of Sciences Institute of International Relations and the World Economy in Moscow.

An exhibition on show across Iran in the run-up to Friday's presidential election told a salutary Soviet tale.
Mikhael Gorbachev, the exhibition recalled, was a gullible reformist whose misguided attempts to dilute communist government ended up destroying it.
The exhibition was ordered by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supposedly impartial supreme leader; a caption duly contended that "Khatami is not another Gorbachev." But the exhibition's title, "The Great Lesson," suggested otherwise.

It has few palatable choices, and probably only one realistic one.
It must essentially choose from among the fates of three regimes whose leaders' recent history should ring instructive wake-up bells in Damascus—Mikhael Gorbachev, Moammar Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein.
A more realistic—and probably the only remaining—option for Damascus would be to forge a policy combining the Gorbachev and Gaddafi ways.
