This is from the Philadelphia Inquirer in March of 1917. This is an American media outlet celebrating the abdication and revolution going on within a piece of the alliance that America would join within a month. No one knew what this meant for the war effort. Russia's withdrawal and separate peace would place great strain on the Western Front. This is why getting America to come as soon as possible and throw men into the fight mattered so much. The Western powers had lost their Russian steamroller.
Exporting democracy for a century. No concept of who were the psychopaths overthrowing the Tsar. No idea how messy revolution truly is. The cynic in me wonders if Jacob Schiff commissioned this out of his hot hatred for the Tsar. We know now that the oppression of the Tsars was nothing in comparison to one week of the Red Terror.
