Those four May go to the other extreme of making a Nonas Gres Sion pact with China. India insist ing on neutralise argues Seato May irritate China into in Stead of discouraging her. Indo Nesia tries to get along with communism not Only abroad but at Home too. So Seato will represent much less than the unanimous desire of Southeast asians for defense against red China. It will there fore Lack nato s rounded Continental defense planning and the strength of its United and huge manpower. The 14 nato members agree an attack on one is an attack on All and they have pledged themselves to go to one another s Aid. The Seato agreement will probably be much weaker.

Britain which is pushing for in most Likely will say something like if any Seato member is at tacked the other members then decide what action to take in accordance with their parliamentary procedures which is an other Way of saying if the time comes the United states Congress will have final say on getting into War in Asia. Whether such a treaty which contains a certain indecision from the beginning will be enough to leter the red chinese remains to be seen.
