Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, Auguil 28, 1972 ric.a Olympic demise The is final- ly under way in Munich. No doubt it will prove to he ;i good show, but even Iho most ardent supporter ot tlie games must, have some doubts iiboul the future. Tliere is too much iimbiguity as to intent; politics has become involved; the staging lias turned into i Commonwealth dispute should think through their actions and consider the consequences for all. Clearly General Amin has not done IhaL dm; of Ihe least helpful rear- lions lo Ihi.s emergency would be to see only Ihe other side of Ihe coin. Britain, acting .ilone find as-sorting her right lo take acfior in her nalional interests Letter to the editor at Singapore, has had her com- euppance in General Amin's expulsion. He too is acting independent- ly in Uganda's .self-interest, even though his judgment .seems to he wildly wrong. But for several reasons this view is fallacious. Britain quietly has taken account of the earlier Commonwealth viewpoints, No arms have been sold to South Africa and only a few heli- copters are planned for sale now. Britain quickly accepted full responsibility for the Asians and lia.s put into opera- ti on extensive rcscttlcmcnl plan.s that have won unstinted praise. From British Asians here the only argument re- maining, then, is over the time- table and the problems il p3-e- sents. The British government's courageous acceptance of ils re.sprin.sibiiity, even it must be shouldered along with serious economic and social problems, implies al.sti accept- ing the full hist one recoi if. This undoubtedly includes se- rious miscalculations about Iho significance of offering British passporls to the Asians. Vet if Commonwealth coun- tries are lo rely on history, flinging it back in the face of a founder and leading benefac- tor as an exc use f o r ron-c o- operalion, then the future of the organisation must indeed he restricted to the most anodyne endeavors. The Common w c a 11 h s strength, h owevcr, demands much more than mere goodwill towards ono member. It has staked its future en principles approved at Singapore. These have been solemnly inscribed and circulated, like the Diefcn- bakcr Bill of Rights, for fram- ing in government offices. This document states that mem- bers not. only will not discrim- inate themselves according lo color; much more, that Ihey will do everything in their er to root out "the evil" wher- ever it exists. Is this principle to become a sham? It will, 'X the Mitchell Sharps, the Indira Gandhis, (he Arnold Smiths and the Kenneth Kaun- das so vocal over South Africa choose to remain si- lenl. Where is their moral out- cry this time? The Common- wealth cannot have tho practi- cal future Mr. Smith has en- visagcd if it faifs lo condemn Black racism ns it condemned While. It must uphold Iho besf in itri societies and if it i.s blind to Hie worst it will soon loso its souf.
