CLYDE A-Bombs Aimed At Moscow- Dulles Gets Tough With Reds r NEW YORK, Jan. 13 -HP-Russia and Red China were under solemn notice Wednesday that if they start any new wars American atomic bombers might strike directly at Moscow or Peipmg In a major foreign policy address Tuesday night, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles formally buned the old containment policy of the Truman administration. ^ He declared that U S. global strategy now is aimed at building ^'massive retaliatory power" to strike against aggression "by means and at places of our own choosing " He made it Plain without saying so that the means could be atomic bombs and the places Russia or Red China. With an eye on the forthcoming Big Four foreign ministers meet- 'ng in Berlin, Dulles als 0 warned that the United States never wiL make a "deal" to seal the fate of captive peoples or to formally divide the world into East and West spheres of influence Observers in Washington called Dulles' speech th P fullest presenta- t'on yet of the administration's new look strategy. Two influential Democrats, Sens Richard B Russell of Georgia and W Stuart Symington of Missouri applauded the retaliatory power idea. "Many of us have felt for a long time," said Symington, foimer Air Foice secietaiy, "that the position just taken by Dulles regarding in- stanc capacity for devastating rc- taliatoiy attack is the greatest single deterient to future aggies- sion." Republicans generally praised the address but Rep John W. McCormack of Massachusetts, Democratic whip m the House, said con- gressional committees should take a careAil look at the new concept to make sure it's right "Only six months ago President Eisenhower and the Republicans were wrong about cutting the An Foice," he said. "We better be very careful the> are not wrong again." In his address before the New Yoik Council on Foreign Relations, Dulles said the old idea of containing communism country-by-countiy is no longer enough for today's world Now, he said, the West must sion and less on local defensive power.
