By Dewitt Mackenzie a foreign affairs analyst while there ran remain Small doubt in most minds regarding the far reaching implications of president Truman a declaration of a new world policy which is calculated to halt communistic aggression. A Good Many Folk Are puzzled As to just Why Greece and Turkey have been selected As the symbols of Uncle Sam s determination. Why should t we have picked any other two countries in the path of the red Advance How is it that these two Small balk in states cast such great shadows in global affairs reds mean business perhaps the easiest Way to arrive at our answers is first to set Down the objective of this dynamic new policy. To epitomize ifs aimed at preserving the Security both military and political not Only of the United states and the Western he a mis phere. But is designed to maintain world peace. Communism minces no words in making it Clear that it is out to destroy what it terms the capitalistic governments. It employs not Only political weapons but bolsters them with bolshevism tactics that is the Strong Arm methods of direct action. It has struck heavily not Only in Europe and Asia but is Boring into Many countries of the Western hemisphere. Things have gone far enough in tile United states so that Secretary of Lambor Schwellenbac says the communist party should be outlawed by Congress. Anything which further strengthens communism. Politically or militarily increases the threat to the Security of nations which wish to preserve their own forms of government. That brings us up to Greece and Turkey and the famous Dardanelles Strait under turkish control. These two countries and the great waterway Between the otherwise landlocked Black sea and the Aegean form one of the most important strategic zones of the whole world militarily. Turkey which straddles the Dardanelles is the land Bridge Between Asia and Europe and through the centuries the conquerors have battled for its control. The turks have controlled the Dardanelles for 500 years although the Strait Long has been internationalized now Russia is reaching for domination. Should she succeed it would give her control of the Eastern Mediterranean and the whole great Middle East. This would so completely upset the already badly battered balance of Power in Europe and the Mediterranean theatre As to jeopardize world peace. Such wholesale control of territory by Russia or by any other single nation help menacing the Security of other countries. Strength is Givin this viewpoint by the fact that u. S. Secretary of state Marshall whose task is to handle this crisis is widely credited with being the greatest military strategist of our time. He must believe in this method of halting communism or he support it. President Truman tells us that a the United nations and its related organizations Are not in position to extend help of the kind that is May Clear air so the United states proposes to come to the Aid of Greece and Turkey because i they Are hard pressed. 2 they Haven to the wherewithal to defend themselves 3 they Are easy geographically for the u. S. To reach and 4britain s own economic crisis makes it impossible for her to give material assistance to these allies. The alternative would be for America to isolate herself but this would mean tossing the bulk of free Europe Asta and Africa into Moscow a hands. Some claim the new policy must Lead to War with russian and obviously War could eventuate. Those who favor the policy however say there is far greater danger in giving bolshevism a free rein. They maintain that the present show Down May Clear the air. War is not inevitable though none can deny that it is possible.
