NmrthwMt.Arfcantat TIM1S, W*4., pAvrrrrviLLi, ARKANSAS b. 21, 1973 · 7 find To Vietnam War Unlikely Until One Side Dominant A» AP News Analysis By WILLIAM L, RYAN Special Correspondent Results to date on the international Paris conference on Vietnam'underscore the fragile nature of the cease-fire and the long distance remaining between truce and peace. The conference, in fact, already seems to have illustrated its lack of power to'do what it is supposed to do. In tpite of North Vietnam's reneging on the prisoner release schedule, the cease-fire may prove effective enough 1o get the U.S. military out and perhaps even bring home all acknowledged American POWs, But from the look of things, the Today In History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 'Torjay is Wednesday, Feb. 28, 5«fi,.day of "" " To Be Nominated WASHINGTON (AP) ^ After serving -as acting director for 10 months, Byron V. Pepitone will be nominated to head the Selective Service System. Pepitone replaced Curtis W. Tarr, who was appointed by President Nixon last May to be an undersecretary of state for coordinating security assistance programs. His new post was announced Tuesday. 1973. There are odds are that there can be no actual end to this war until either North or South is dominant. That can involve years. Peace, as distinguished from truce, is stalled by frozen attitudes, and clearly the Paris conference can do little or nothing about it. The conference can hardly hope even to come close to carrying out its announced purpose, under the agreement, to "guarantee the ending of the war, the maintenance of peace in Vietnam and respect of the Vietnam peoples' fundamental right to self-determination." The 12-party meeting can do little more than give formal approval to the cease-fire pact. Its even division between the Communists and non-Commu nisU promises * repetilion of what was produced by such arrangements in the past--paralysis. .HARDLY LIKELY The Americans and the North Vietnamese have agreed on how to reconvene the conference to deal with truce violations, but this requires seven voles. It is hardly likely, for example, that if Hanoi objects to a meeting there will be any break in the six-vote Communist side. No vote, no meeting. The cease-fire pact supposedly guaranteed the "democratic liberties" of, all and projected a democratic process to lead to peaceful reunification of Vietnam, but such terms have sharply different meanings for the two sides. In the estimation of Communists, what they call the "bourgeoisie", no matter what its size and following, is something ipart from "the people" and aas no right to democratic lib-. ;rlies. In Hanoi's view, for a "democratic" process to produce a decision favoring anti- Communists wbuld be unthinkable. For its part, Saigon's govern-, ment and its supporters guard against a possibility that the Communists will come out ahead. President Nguyen Van Thieu cannot see the Viet Cong or Communists as entitled to democratic processes. As tlie two sides jockey for advantage and continue their land-grabbing thrusts, Hanoi may consider its possession of the U.S. prisoners a strong lever for indirect pressure on Saigon. The North's Politburo clings to the, conviction that, Saigon will do exactly as the Americans .say, just as the Americans seek to apply pressure' on Hanoi through Poking or Moscow. LIMITATIONS That sort of, pressure has its limitations. The . Vietnamese have been clawjng at each other a long time. Even if the huge. allies of both genuinely wanted an equitable settlement, circumstances would make such an outcome just about im possible. · . · Henry Kissinger has said that after 25 years of war and revolution, the aging revolutionaries of the Hanoi Politburo are un- likely to surrender their longtime goa| of t a k i n g - o v e r all Vietnam.. The age of the polit- ; in fact, can make it all the more anxious. Weeks after the cease-fire was signed, Pham Van Dong, the North's premier, called the truce simply the beginning of a new phase in the "revolution" that began decades ago. The defense minister, Gen. Vo Nguyen Gjap. again referred publicly to the Viet Cong as "the only genuine representative of the South Vietnamese people."That Hanoi position from the outset of the Paris peace talks had been a main cause of five years of deadlock. FIGHT TO CQNTINUE . All this makes it seem hardly likely that the North wants ,to enter into commitments looking toward permanent division of authority in the South. It indicates, rather, an intention on both sides to continue fighting in the contestable areas. Five ..years ago. when the Vietnam war was at its peak of intensity, some Americans on the scene predicted the conflict would probably fade, gradually rather than ever come to an abrupt end. . Current developments mak» it appear that though the war may recede while the belligerents catch their breath, it is unlikely to fade away until the issue of domination is settled. By then Indochina may no longer be regarded by American* as an issue of any great importance. 3"(|S-daS*'.lift-in the year.
