Lenin said this in the very early 1920's, when he was formulating his New Ecomomic Policy (NEP). During the same time frame, he also told other
people that when the West started recognizing the Communist led, USSR that the U.S. would be so happy to do business with Soviet Russia that we would
gladly sell them the rope that they would in turn use to strangle us with. I can't remember what book or when it was that I read it, but the quotes
themselves are pretty accurate. Like the othjer person who responded to your thread, you can prbably google that and come up with the Lenin book or
speech that it came from.
