The Soviet Union warned to day It might "take action" if American and British troops are not withdrawn from- the Middle East. The sabre-rattling, statement lent urgency to the emergency session of the U.N. General Assembly. The Soviets made thev threat in Pravda, the official Communist Party organ, s the Western nations swung their support to a Norwepian reso lution asking Secretary Gen eral Dag Hammarsklold to put President Elsenhower's Middle East peace plan Into action. Some observers dismissed the Moscow warning as a propaganda jab designed to give emphasis to a Soviet resolution calling for the immediate withdrawal of American and British troops from Lebanon and Jordan. But they were worried by the blunt wording. Moscow said "our state cannot be Indifferent to the fart that a serious danger of war is being generated In the Im mediate vicinity of Its borders" and "it is natural that in these circumstances countries bordering on the Near and Middle East should he forced to take steps to guarantee their own and general security."
