Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - July 20, 1966, Bennington, Vermont National window precedent of Nuremberg cited in plight of . Prisoners by Lyle Wilson United press International our doves who so angrily denounce the strategy and tactics of the War in Southeast Asia should consider now whether their intemperate Choice of words is appropriate to the situation. For example what did a senator intend to convey when he applied the word a outlaw Rye to the air attacks on North Viet Nam Oil depots a preferred meaning in websters third International is the act of outlawing the process of putting a person outside the Protection of the Law. The senator of course did not mean that to apply to captured airmen now held in Hanoi and threatened with trial and punishment As War criminals. But his intemperate language might recommend itself to the North vietnamese in search of arguments however fragile in support of their threat to try the captured americans. On the Day the senator was denouncing a outlaw by a a soviet spokesman in Moscow was denouncing the raids As piracy. The North vietnamese have been parading captured american fliers through Hanoi streets manacled and an invitation to Public abuse. The incendiary language of sen. Ted Kennedy i res a two China policy Washington us a sen. Edward m. Kennedy dmass., today urged the United states to move toward a a two China United nations policy that would protect Formosa while opening the . Door to red China. Kennedy recommended revision of the . Charter so that nationalist China s present permanent Security Council seat could a rotate among developing ton of the a preservation of Quot finally we would be informing the United nations that we Are prepared to labor for the goal of the United nations being a Universal body with representation for All the people of the world a he said. The Massachusetts senator said he would strongly oppose giving red China the National world members a probably Start 1st seat on the Security courting with India. Cli Quot at this such an approach he said in a speech prepared for Senate delivery a will Mark a new beginning in our Asia policy and make it where most important a in the eyes of our asian friends and allies. A we must now move to meet the Challenge of China not on the battlefields of our asian friends but initially in the International forum created for Kennedy and sen. George s. Mcgovern d-s.d., suggested in a May 3 speech that Blue ribbon commission be created to study .-Chlna relations. He suggested then that the highest priority be Given the question of red China s membership in the United nations. In opposing communist China s admission in the past Kennedy said a we have expended precious diplomatic capital. �?�1 am no longer convinced that our Best interests continue to lie in this direction. I do not believe that an unyielding Nega Tulve approach to the China question serves the he St interests of the United states Formosa our asian friends or the United Nap tons in the world taking the initiative in drafting a two China Resolution he said would place the Burden of China s absence from the United nations a on the chinese themselves and on their supporters and shift the emphasis of the annual debate to the ques neither China should have that seat now he contended. This could be achieved by cutting the five permanent seats to four the United states Britain Russia and France or better by giving the fifth seat to a one of the dominant underdeveloped states of the Southern half of the world such As a India represents the great Experiment of our generation a struggle toward Freedom and democracy against All the negative forces generated by problems of population poverty underdeveloped resources and geography a he said. Kennedy paid tribute to president Johnson for his july 12 speech on China policy calling for a reconciliation Between nations that now Call themselves Dove complaints against the War in Southeast Asia is less a Factor than the question whether there would be any Legal precedent however slight for the trial of american airmen. A precedent is not a justification but precedent can Lead to argument and confusion and trouble. The Legal precedent if any lies in the trial conviction and execution of German and japanese War criminals after world War ii. The French British soviets and americans combined in 1945-46 to eff9ct a new chapter in International Law. This was in response to popular demand in the open societies and perhaps in the soviet Union As Well. The indictment of nazi leaders tried in Nuremberg charged conspiracy to wage aggressive War crimes against peace crimes violating the Laws of War and crimes against humanity. Twelve nazis were sentenced to hang seven to prison. Three were acquitted. Genocide was the principal crime against humanity More specifically the inhuman nazi Effort to exterminate european jews. Popular clamor for punishment of War criminals roared loud and Long in the United states. In the Pacific there had been the death March from Bataan. Americans had seen news pictures of japanese swordsmen executing kneeling prisoners. Some of the american military had doubts of the justification of punishment for soldiers who had executed orders from the top. There was much popular clamor but not much debate of the issues. The late sen. Robert a Taft thought the Nuremberg sentences were an outrage against Justice. Characteristically he said so publicly. The Nuremberg verdict was especially Welcome in new York where gov. Thomas e. Dewey denounced Taft. President Truman said the trial blazed a new Trail in International Justice. And now that Trail May Lead to a War prisoner pen in Hanoi. It is not Likely that there will be in Hanoi any Man to play the part Taft played in 1946 a to shout against the wind.

Indira Gandhi surprised some authorities. The general opinion Here is that soviet american relations Are at their lowest Point since the october 1962, cuban missile crisis. Officials assert however that they do not anticipate any russian moves in Europe or elsewhere to take advantage of american preoccupation with Asia. . Authorities make no secret of the fact that they feel Wilson and mrs. Gandhi both could have handled their missions to Moscow More skilfully. The View Here is that Wilson brought upon himself the unprecedented Public Rebuff which he suffered from the russians. The criticism Here of mrs. Gandhi rises from the fact that she permitted herself to be lured into signing a joint communique with Russia com Deming american policy in Asia on russian terms.
