Yet the Kremlin has now clearly and consciously risked a world war. This in turn mean? that Washington has been mistaken about Soviet capabilities and in- tentions. Thus a new and unex- pected situation, has arisen, and a new policy must be quickly fashioned to fit this new situation. Harriman and the other Presidential advisers who must devise tne new plan of action will not find theirs an easy task. For complacency, muddling and s c 1 f-dclusion now make it necessary for them to start virtually from scratch. They will find very little to build on. As far as our relations with our allies arc concerned, the At- lantic powers have yet failed to agree on any realistic plan for the defense of the Atlantic community. This is for a simple reason. At the Hague meeting this spring, the Atlantic defense officials wrapped the maximum defense require- ments of every participating coun- try into a huge, ungainly bundle, and called the monstrous result a.
