Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta February 9, 1972 THE tFTHBRIDGE HERALD 31 Will cut aid to country U.S. warns Cambodia on coups By NICHOLAS TURNER London Observer Service PHNOM PENH The Uni- ted Stales Embassy here lias quietly let it be known that any coup against the Cambo- dian Prime Minister, Marshal Lon Nol, would result in the withdrawal of American aid. The Americans are entrcme- ly anxious to avoid the sort of coup and counter coup which plagued South Vietnam in the mid-sixties. "We are not going down the same road in Cam- one American said. "We are not saying they have to keep What we are saying is that any change in the leadership has got to he done legally and constitution- ally. The American public and tile Administration will not stand [or any more Vietnam- type situations." Marshal Lon Nol's leadership has recently been under strong criticism from civilian politi- cians, both inside and ouUside Hie government, and from mili- tary officers. For some time there was speculation about a possible coup if the Marshal, who is partially paralysed following a stroke, does not hand over to a successor. 'llie threat of a coup, if it ever was really serous, now appears to have subsided. But the political pot is still bub- U.S. election row brews WASHINGTON (Renter) A major election year row in the United States braved today after another attack by a top member of the administration on critics of President Nixon's handling of the Vietnam war. II. R.Haldeman, White Douse chief of staff and Nixon's policy adviser, said in a national tele- vision interview Monday that critics of the war policy "are ccnciously aiding and abetting the enemy of the United States." The statement was tanta- mount to a charge of treason. It provoked a swift response from angiy Democratic leaders who felt their loyalty was being im- pugned. The comment by Haldeman. a 44-year-old former advertising executive, came only four days after a slashing attack by State Secretary William Rogers on Senator Edmund Muskie, lead- ing contender for the Demo- cratic nomination for president in November's election. ACCUSED MUSKIE In a hastily called press con- ference, Rogers accused the Maine senator of jeopardizing Uie chance of a negotiated peace in Vietnam by putting forward his own proposals be- fore the Communists had re- plied to Nixon's eight-point plan. Monday Haldeman told an in- terviewer that before Nixon ex- plained his peace plan in a na- tionwide television address his critics were "unconsciously ech- oing the line that the enemy wanted echoed." But after the explanation, he said, "the only conclusion you can draw is that the critics now are consciously aiding and abet- ting the enemy of the United Slates." White House press secretary Ronald Zicgler said later that Haldeman was expressing his own views and he refused to say whether Nixon approved of them or not. Senator George McGovern (Dem. a Vietnam dove, accused the administration of turning criticism into an issue for political purposes. bling and could easily boil ovei in the near future.
