weeks have had the effect of rousing Americans from their dream The Spirit of Ge neva has shown itself to be a typical Kremlin counterfeit That should serve as a warning to those who have been enchanted by that other euphonious combination of words peaceful coexistence The greatest mistake weve made diplomatically within my lifetime has been in assuming hon or or honesty or even decent motives in those who speak for that phoniest and most despicable philosophy ever conceived in the mind of man Communism Ifbegan back in 1933 when we reversed our previous policy and gave recognition ruled Russia It manifested itself again during World War II when we buddied up to the Communists closer than we needed to do In this I should admit in candor I was sucked in as much as anybody in our gov ernment Our sucker role which had re vealed itself at Tehran Yalta and Pottsdam reappeared at San Francisco We made the unbeliev able mistake of believing Molotov when he professed to be for peace
