with neither promise nor hope of victorv 3 lor this countrv to bolster the defense of allies with out depleting our own resources and only if those nations pledge their own lives and full resources to secure their own defense Distrustful The whole tone of MacArthurs address was one of distrust of pressure by ade their abusive quate counterpressure No Faith The general did not call for a breakoff in the Kaesong truce talks but he left it clear he puts no faith in them and would open allout war against the reds in the far east as the best way to get an agreement He also charged this nation is plunging toward socialism and economic disaster under the pres ent national leadership and he said the people will insist that Amer can policy be reoriented to Amer can tradition American thinking and American needs the administrations foreign and military policies And while he never mentioned President Truman by jiamethere was no doubt he was referring to the president and next years election when he said I have faith that the wisdom and determination of the Amer ican peopleare not going to per mit our country to continue dow the road to national 3eopardy And then the general saic Americanswill
