•M. Bradley Discusses American Strength U.S. Military Position Analyzed WASHINGTON, March 8. (AP> — General Omar N. Bradley, America's No. !• military man, said today that present forces cannot give the United States "an absolute guarantee against a disastrous Mow." "But I feel that we are going to achleva the necnssuy forces to pre- wnt a disaslrous attack from crippling tills country,", the chairman of the Joint, chiefs of staff said In B sjieech prepared for delivery before the Women's National Press Club. "I also believe that our forces in being, and our mobillalion base, will be sufficient, together wi(h the forces and potential of friendly nations, to win a war If It comes,'' lie added. Bradley made a sober anvilysis of nation's m a solid iflltary position compared with that of Russia. He praised the'navy's anti-submarine program and the army's economy- geared emphasis on combat strength at the expense of supporting personnel. Of atomic power, lie said: Alom Pile Is Aid "Our stockpile of atomic bombs, and our ability to deliver them, affords its an Immediate but conclusive blow of retaliation. Our research and development program, not only in bombs and missiles, but in other weapons and techniques, if properly .maintained and supported should contnitle to Improve the position of the United Stales and its friends." Bradley urged that the navy's submarine and anti-submarine program got along "as fast as our research and development facilities will.penult," and added: "I am glad fo be able to tell you, from my personal observation, that we are progressing rapidly In this field." Bradley said that International tension, • increased since President Truman's announcement last September 1 of an atomic explosion in Russia, "has fostered national confusion." He urged American leaders to dispel this confusion by "thinking sensibly, calmly, anil clearly about national security.'' "On the foreign policy of our government., ond 1fs supporting millinry strength, rests tl\e confidence of all friendly nations," he said. "This nation," Bradley declared, "had adopted a long-range policy of inlernatlmuil peace and international collective security. This policy needs the support of a sound, long-range military policy that cannot be bent by each shift in the wind, tempered or softened from day to day." Tf military preparations behind the iron Curtain become the yardstick of these policies, he added, "then the likelihood of peace becomes as unpredictable as the March weather." First Prevent War '' Bradley called the prevention of war "our first goal." But should ' the peace offensive nt any time frtl- ter or break down," lie said "Then •KB are. charged with the protection of the United States by armed yorce. In the meantime, he said, it would be "economically foolhardy and politically • inconsistent for us to maintain .forces in being sufficient to win a major-war." Instead, he said, American military planning called for: 1. Maintaining strength sufficient to prevent disaster in the event of an attack, and strike a retaliatory blow "strong enough to slow down the agressor while we mo- oilize." 1- Provide educational, training and logistical facilities to assure quic kexpanston of the armed Inrccz GOP Seeks to Change Strike Survey Plans By Martin I,.
