WEDNESDAY, MAR6H 23, 1949 BLYTIIEVILLE <ARK.) COURIER NEWS 'AOB TffBXM ITHE NATION TODAY L/.S. fa Learning the Hard Way \That World Affairs Hove Direct {Bearing on Freedom in America (EDITOR'S NOTE; This Is tile second ol four stories on the Atlantic | Pact, giving its background and Its purpose.) By James Marlow WASHINGTON, March n. (If}— The Atlantic Paul Is the result ol fjessons learned in the brass-knuckle school of world atrairs. Class opened tn 1914 with World War I. We thought Europe's bust | ness was not our business. We thought we could stay out. We couldn't. Next class: League of Millions.* I We skipped this because we hadn't 1 learned World War I's lesson: That | what happens in Europe involves | us. Next class: World War II, Tills I was the unforgettable lesson. Hitler taught it: divide and conquer. We thought we could stay out. We I couldn't. Tardiness Expensive But we didn't get tn till he owned I most of the continent of Europe, 1 knocking off the democracies one by one. Only Britain and n few neutrals stayed out of his hands. | Yet. the democracies were our friends, not Hitler. If we had learned World War I's I lesson, and let Hitler know before he got started that we'd support the democracies, he might not have started. Next class: United Nations. Having learned now we'd always be neck-deep in Europe's doings, we Joined U.N. to keep peace. Next Class: U.N. wasn't working Russia picked up where Hitler lef fjjpff. began gobbling up the nation! K"nr Eastern Europe. Next class: We decided to d> something about the lesson learnec from Hitler—that any strong now er, which could pick off one coun try after another in Europe, coul' dominate Europe and maybe th world. So we set up the Truman Doc trine. Under the old Monroe Doctrin we wouldn't let a foreign power ge a foothold on this continent lest endanger us. Under the Truman Doctrine we 1 said the world was smaller now, our frontiers were no longer our own shores, that our frontiers henceforth would be any place in the world where we thought danger might start for us. Launch New Doctrine We began the Truman Doctrine by giving help to Greece and Turkey to put a brake on Russia- Next class: We extended the Truman doctrine. Realizing the democracies In the West, weakened by the war, wouldn't be any match for Russia if she recalled out for them, directly or indirectly, we set up the "arshall plan to get them on their feet with goods and money. Next class: The Communists grabbed off That made a solid wall of Communist countries • facing-the Western democracies. Next class: Those democracies, jittery about Russia, got together, formed the Western European Union, called the Brussels pact. Purpose: Mutual defense against attack from the East. Taking part: Britain, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg. On the day the Brussels pact was formed, March 17. 1948, President Truman told congress: "This development deserves our full support. I am confident that the United States will, by appropriate means, extend to the free nations the support w r hich the situa- on requires." , Three months later, on June 11 948, the U. S. Senate gave its bless- ig to this country's taking part li defense set up like the Brussels act. Senate Still Must Approve So. In the summer of 1948 thl ountry started talking with th Irussels pact countries and Canadf o extend the pact. Last Friday the North Atlantl Alliance was announced. Takln art: U. S.. Canada, Britain, France he Netherlands, Belgium, Luxein bourg. Norway. Italy, Portugal, Iceland and Den nark were invited to Join. What he purpose? To help each other arm; to he! each other out In case ol attack; I ind, by setting up the pac., to scive notice on Russia that an attack on one would be an attack on all. It was hoped this would bjit\g Russlu to a dead halt in any ideas It had about gobbling up all Europe. One thing more: We're not actually part of the pact and won't be until the Scuate approves, ft's expected to, in a month or so. This is the point we've reached In the school of hard knocks.
