 CNN Cold War - Profile: Nikita Khrushchev
Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev was born in 1894 to an illiterate peasant family in Kalinovka, a village near Russia's border with Ukraine.
To supplement his family's meager income he began working at an early age, but despite this, and despite his father's second job as a coal miner, Khrushchev's family was unable to survive as farmers.
It was the beginning of his activist career: at the age of 18, Khrushchev joined a group of workers who had organized a strike protesting working conditions.

Taubmann's biography is thorough, tracing Kruschev's origins as a Ukrainian-born Russian who grew up under conditions of grinding poverty, rising above his origins through his cleverness and drive to become a metalworker and enter a higher social class.
However, Kruschev was a young man on the make and threw his lot in with the Bolsheviks since he perceived they provided him with the most opportunity for advancement.
It is by no means an entirely pleasant story, not so much because of the brutalities in which Kruschev was a party, than because of the background of bureaucratic toadying and back-stabbing that runs through the narrative.

In approximately March or April of 1962, the Soviet Premier, Nikita Kruschev, decided to place offensive missiles in Cuba as a strategic move in the Soviet struggle with the United States.

Kruschev's placement of nuclear missiles in Cuba was his response.
As a result, Kruschev was removed from power and replaced by hard-line leaders who began a massive nuclear and conventional arms build-up.
Neither could know that just two years later Kruschev would be out of office and Kennedy would be assassinated, and they would be replaced by leaders who had a complete mis-understanding of what happened in 1962.

 TIME: The Berlin Wall: Ten Years After
Kruschev, a veteran of the Bolshevik Revolution, won a power struggle to replace Stalin after the dictator's death in 1953.
At the same time, though, Kruschev ordered the brutal suppression of dissent against Soviet rule in Eastern Europe during the '50s, most notably the bloody crackdown on the Hungarian revolt of 1956.
Kruschev was considered too reformist for many Soviet apparatchiks, however, and he was ousted by a conservative group led by Leonid Brezhnev in 1964.

He reminds me quite a lot of Nikita Kruschev, but even Kruschev knew what would happen if America were attacked with biological or nuclear weapons.
Kruschev was the supreme leader of a bona-fide superpower, and he dared not fight his wars with germs and atoms.
Even if Sadaam is dim enough to act differently, such an attack would immediately give America the moral high ground and would just as quickly satisfy all pre-requisites for fighting a just war.

According to the film, Kruschev was a Commisar, a ranking party official, sent by Stalin personally to take over the defense of Stalingrad after early gains by the German invaders had pushed the Soviet defenders to the brink of annihiliation.

Within hours of Kruschev's 1968 death (from acute ethanol poisoning), the Rat Pack rebellion had completely swept the occupiers from the land and the Stars and Stripes once again flew from America's makeshift capitol in the Circus Circus lobby.

Behind the Iron Curtain, Soviet leader Nikita Kruschev is led into the private laboratory of Professor Vanko, aka The Crimson Dynamo, the world's greatest expert on electricity.
He disintegrates an Iron Man replica, stops a tank from moving in its tracks, and impresses Kruschev immeasurably (despite the Soviet leaders concerns that Vanko is too diabolical and egotistical to trust.) Kruschev challenges the Crimson Dynamo to go to America and destroy Iron Man and Tony Stark.
He then is inspired to another plan: he blocks the electrically armored man inside a prison of tree trunks, then comes back after a brief time and grabs the trapped villain and carries him off and threatens to drop him into the ocean where he will electrocute himself.

The president was John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the handsome Irishman perceived as a weakling by Soviet leader Nikita Kruschev.
With the fiasco of the Bay of Pigs invasion of 1961 still hanging in the White House air like the scent of sizzling bacon, Kennedy was vulnerable.
But Thirteen Days suggests that the real showdown was between Kennedy and his own Joint Chiefs of Staff who shared Kruschev's belief that Kennedy was "too liberal to fight." At the first sign that the U.S.S.R. is encroaching on American turf, the generals are itching for war.

At that time, the United States of America and the Soviet Union came very close, as close as ever, to the edge of a nuclear catastrophe and the top leaders of the two countries, John Kennedy and Nikita Kruschev bore a large part of the responsibility for what happened.
Both Kennedy and Kruschev had not much time remaining in the arena of history and their departure, the departure of both of these men was unexpected.
What I would like to say is that it was not their fault that the process that they started, that the process did not evolve further after they left the political arena.
