N WH/rr fee <OU (t.A"KH- 1106, SV? fifth tmcmiT Why Foreign Affairs Have Broken So Many Presidents Commentary by Franz Schurmann Pacific News Service Why is it that so many presidents this century have come to grief over foreign affairs? The answer ultimately lies in beliefs on war and peace which split the country more passionately than any domestic issues. Woodrow Wilson's presidency and health were shattered by the fury aroused by his founding of the peacekeeping I-eague of Nations. Harry Truman was politically paralyzed during the Korean war when hawks wouldn't let him settle and doves wouldn't let him win. Eisenhower settled that war and improved relations with the Russians, but pacified the hawks by ferocious hostility towards "Red China." Kennedy came into office as a hawk- tumed-dove in relations with the Russians, hut then deepened U.S. involvement in Vietnam to the point of war. Johnson went over the brink, yet made U.S. Russian relations into almost a collaborative venture. Kennedy was assassinated and Johnson canceled his bid for second term because of Vietnam. Nixon became a dove on Russia and China, but showed his hawkish side in the ferocious bombing of Indochina and in abetting the overthrow of Chile's Allende. Dove and hawk issues fueled Watergate. Carter was frozen into inaction over the Iran hostage crisis by hawk anger and dove fears. That cost him his second term. Hawk and dove are words that surfaced during the Vietnam war. Yet their political meaning goes much deeper than just views on the use of force. Hawks, whether conservative or liberal, believe evil is rampant in the world and that nations, like individuals, must always keep themselves armed and vigilant. Doves believe that peace is the natural human condition, and that wars, crime and violence are aberrations. Doves believe in talking and negotiating. All of these presidents have felt hawkish and dovish passions pounding in on them, and all made secret and devious moves to advance the pressing issues of foreign affairs, which in the end backfired on them. Now it may be Ronald Reagan's turn. For six years his odd mix of hawk and dove gained him popularity. He endless- ley orated as hawk, yet his kindly nature bespoke a dovish disposition. He blasted the Russians, but bit by bit moved into serious negotiations with them. He relentlessly tore into terrorism, but pulled the Marines outof Beirut after they suffered a bloody terrorist attack. He has made no secret of his desire to overthrow the Sandinistas, hut so far has been cautious in directly striking Nicaragua. It seems as if Reagan had been pursuing a clever zigzag strategy to satisfy both hawk and dove passions. If the doves got better relations with the Russians, the hawks got "Star Wars" and aid for the contras. If the secret opening to Iran pleased conservatives worried about oil, Israeli involvement pleased liberal hawks on Israel. But the zigzag strategy has now collided with passions on both sides ofthe political spectrum. The secret Iran arms deals have angered hawks, who believe that Khomeini, the PLO, and much of the Arab world are rank evil. And revelations about the contra link have infuriated doves who are angered by Reagan's passionate desire to destroy the Sandinistas. These same passions were smoldering earlier, but the strategy worked to keep the fires low. So long as small steps were taken to produce small "faits accomplis" in foreign affairs, the passions were not unduly aroused. But of late, it seemed to many hawks and doves as if Reagan was about to take some big steps. Reagan had evidently made some extraordinarily dovish proposals on nuclear arms control at Reykjavik. The administration was secretly backing a Saudi-Iranian rapprochement which would radically change the balance of power in the Middle East and raise the world price of oil. And it may have been positioning itself for an assault against Nicaragua. In this supercharged atmosphere, it needed only the revelations of a minor I_ebanese newspaper to set off the Iran- gate explosion.
