True, but only for 1 world war (the second, in case you were wondering).
For the First World War, the Russians pulled out after Red October
(actually November, 1917 by the Gregorian calendar), and freed the
Germans fighting on the Eastern Front to fight England, France and the US.
There was also the question of Allied supplies in Bolshevik hands, which
prompted the Archangel expedition (the only time American troops
directly fought Russian Bolsheviks). Some help.

And, for some guidance on Sweden's "neutrality" during WW2, perhaps you
should read http://www.house.gov/international_relations/crs/sweden.htm
and figure out what would have happened to all the neutral countries that
collaborated with Nazi Germany once all resistance on both fronts had been

I hate arrogance, no matter what country it comes from.
And this topic needs to either move or die.
