Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - July 21, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Sokolsky the future of nato nato is essentially a political and military Alliance designed to Challenge soviet imperialism and to provide defences against it. Associated with nato was the Balkan Alliance the Baghdad pact and Seato. This established a military and political line West and South of soviet Russia upon which the United states Hopes to depend for peace and War. But these Are voluntary organizations among free nations and therefore no coercive Means can be used to enforce any of their decisions. The Balkan Alliance collapsed because of the Cyprus situation which made it impossible for Greece and Turkey to remain in Alliance. Also j Tito gyrated Between a pro and anti soviet attitude since the emergence of Khrushchev As the top Man in the Kremlin. More Cor j redly it is to be said that Tito re-1 sponged to soviet challenges. Russia always holding the initiative. As the Cyprus question finds no Solu j Tion and As Tito is Uncertain As to j what course to pursue it is not Likely that the Balkan Alliance will Ever be restored. Too i the Baghdad pact has been assailed by soviet Russia and by Nasser. It has been the principal stumbling Bjork to Nasser a ambitions to establish an Arab Universal state with himself at its head. The Only Arab country in the Baghdad pact is Iraq unless a pro Nasser government can take hold there. The Iraq revolution was designed to destroy the ruling House of Iraq and to join that country to Nasser s United Arab Republic. Should it finally eventuate that Iraq is out of the Baghdad pact it will be necessary to re establish the line from Turkey to Pakistan a very difficult task indeed. For Iraq was the Center of such a line now Iran stands unsupported and in peril. The problems of Turkey and Pakistan Are thus seriously aggravated. I soviet Russia lies on top of Turkey and is devoted to crushing that i country As czarist Russia had been j for More than two centuries. The turks however Are prepared for i trouble with Russia and would probably Welcome a test of strength because Only then could the turks know for sure whether they stand alone or really have allies sooner or later thus will have to be known the struggle Over Cyprus has proved very Little either from the standpoint of Western Solidarity or american Good intentions toward Turkey.
