Russia's Molotov rejects all Big Four efforts to write a German peace treaty. And he ignores our suggestion that Russia help settle the uneasy truce in Korea and the very active war still going on in Indo-China. His stand on the German question permits him to take ail equally arbitrary position in Afia. Without this black-mail action on Germany he would be compelled to give us an answer regarding Korea and Indo-China. It's a point all Americans might as wel! realize because sooner 01 later we are going to have to decide what to do about that missing German treaty. As long as Russia keeps us hung up on that hook she is free to back guerrilla war anc revolution all over Asia. ^The Western powers are going to llfljvo to do something about Germany whether Russia likes it 01 not because Germany belongs to Europe and as long as Moscow keeps her occupation troops in the eastern half she dominies the situation in both Europe and Asia. We grant Russia the natural domination of Asia—but of Europe we do not. And when you couple to this fact the certain knowledge that if she could be put out of Germany we could settle the problems of Asia WffL have a clear picture of the probable course of world events— however grim the picture may be. Always assuming of course, that the Russians won't back down under an ultimatum. Their long-range history does allow of this possibility. That is the calculated risk the West must some time take—offering a peace treaty to all the Germans without Russian consent. >"* . . • '..
