automatic commitment for this nation to go to war in an efforl to help an alliance member under attack He said the treaty poses an obligation upon each party to use its honest judgment as to action it deems necessary to re store and maintain the security of the north Atlantic area The essence of the agreement ie said is the recognition of the fact that an armed attack on any of the north Atlantic nations is in effect an attack upon them all directed squarely against our common democratic way of ife While the senate is expected to approve the treaty by a large mar gin when it is finally brought
