Transcript Contrasting Views on the 1 INTERNATIONA] S Peace in Our Time? DISl I ssie.N of I .S. policy In.1.17 is rendered singularly difficult by the impossibility of discovering whal il is. One is hard put to decide whether we have' a foreign policy at all, or are simply standing in tin- middle of thr road, unable in decide which way to go. and in grave danger of bring hit by the traffic minimi rapidly in bold directions. Not only do the pronouncements of the President ami Secretar) nf State vary from week to week, or even from day to day and often fail to synchronize—they also tend In l.e as ambiguous as the sayings nf the' Delphic oracle which we'tf wont to mislead the' l.r-'.'ks who consulted it ami interpreted its mysterious messages according to their hope's and freer- or prejudices. Presidenl Eisenhower's answers to questions ;it his press conferences, together wilh his own and Secretary Dulles' speeches, not to mention lhe remarks occasionall) contributed hy sundry Cabinel members, generals and admirals, serve only I., leave the world guessing. Either their statements contradict our another or they rem be interpreted in such diverse fashii.n hv thr pundits who "explain" eeda Utley by FREDA UTLEY them in tin- press and on the radio that thr public mighl just as well continue enjoying itself watching TV dramas, comedies, or cheesecake, as seek information in thr newspapers or anywhere else concerning the' mystery of I nited Stair- policy. Insofar as iVmerica's Atlantic policy is concerned there is some clarity. True that our promises to France and Germany concerning the' Saar contradicl one another and may yet wreck the West European I nion and prevent NATO from acquiring ei backbone in lhe shape nf a West German army. Nor is there an) guarantee that our British and French allies will not tear down the painfitlly-huill structure of West F.uro- pran I nion at the' forthcoming conference with MOSCOW, which is lo pin eel.' the implementation fas distinct from ratification! of the' I'aiis pacts. I.ut at least thr world kmews that the I x \ii Force is mi the alert, night anil day. al ils mam bases around lhe periphery nf the Soviel empire, and that if the Communists attack anywhere in the European or Middle Eastern area, we -hall hit Ih.in with all that we have. it is iii tin' Pacific, where thr danger of weir is far more imminent, lhal mir in- tentions are so vague that neither friend nor for knmss whether America ran be counted upon In help thr Chinese Nationalists to retain the offshore islands which the' Communists have already started In attack, following tin- evacuation of tin- Ten hriis al our insistence. Certainly we cannot know whal is our intention from Mr. Dulles' statements. In his February Id speech In the Foreign Policy Association in New York, hr s;,i,| thai "the I nited Stair- has ,,,, commitment and no purpose in defend thr coastal pee-itieeiis a- such." His subsequent remarks on this and other occasions lhal by "as such" he meant thai we shall defend them only if their conquest by the Communists seems to presage an attack em Formosa, served only to make' confusion worse confounded. Since Peiping is proclaiming night and day theit ii intends to "liberate" Formosa, there rem be no doubl that these islands would be steppiogstones Page 32 to their objective, just eis in Nationalist hands the) constitute Free China's last best hope of liberating the mainland from the Communists. But Mr. Dulles phrase "as such" leaves il open to us to pretend to ourselves that Communisl China will cease and elrsisl from aggres- sieen if we h'l her take the Quemoys and Matsu in exchange for a cease-fire i" thr Formosa Straits.
