the nex few months and years to make their secret arms deal with Egypt to put down the Hun garian rebellion to begin diplo matic blackmail in the form o threatening letters sent individ ually to members of NATO with the warning that Russias rockel superiority could be invoked if they didnt do as Moscow thought best MOST CRUCIAL of all thty reneged publicly on every ma jor agreement made at
