The war, (in the) post-war developments, including the Russian revolution, have [totally?] changed the economic, political, military and diplomatic face of our planet.

The present terrific crisis, inspite of its devastating effects on the United States, will change the relation of forces still futher not in favour of Europe, but in favour of the United States and the colonial countries.
