The editors recall that Israel has frequently said she would not be the first to introduce nuclear weapons into the Middle East and there has been no authentication of the report about the Jericho s capabilities. How Ever they say there is Little doubt that if Israel considered that such weapons were needed would be forthcoming. The other country mentioned As a possible impending candidate for the nuclear club is India. Defence analysts there have foreseen the possibility of India s acquiring a nuclear capability if Only to insure an adequate voice in the next two 1971-1972 Edi million people in an Asia in which Japan too May Well have acquired the bomb.

Green red or stopping Centre Grant fart Plaza Sussia Centre squeeze e. Germans Honor Saigon special owns South Vietnam s minister of the Economy Pham Kim Ngoc seems to thrive on in popularity. On one occasion last year his photograph was published on the front Page of every newspaper in Saigon Over the caption the people s number one now he has stirred up anger with a new economic package including devaluation a Raissez Faire import and Export policy a new tax system and incentive pay increases to troops in com Bat units. Predictably the package was condemned by Many parliamentarians and newspapers As a plan the poor and fatten the Rich. But president Nguyen Van Thieu freshly in stalled for a second four year term manifested his support for the program by personally delivering some of its main Points to a joint session of Par lament. The package contained to real surprises. Or. Ngoc had worked out most of the Mea by Leslie col1tt Berlin special owns Gen. Karl von Clausewitz has been returned to his native soil. The mortal re Mains of the widely quoted prussian general have been removed from a cemetery in the polish City of Wro claw formerly the German Breslau and reburied in a military ceremony in von Clausewitz s Birthplace at Burg East Germany. It is easy to see Why the poles agreed to Issue the exit permit. The general in their eyes was just another prussian Militarist and to Boot in 1831 led an army against them. But Why Are the East German communists so interested to have von Clausewitz buried on their territory for one thing the general was no Ordinary Sabre rattling prussian officer. It was von Clausewitz who reflected in his Book on War that War is an Extension of politics by other an insight that has since. Been interpreted to fit a number of philosophies. The political right has used it to rather cynically justify War As being inevitable. Lenin on the other hand wrote that von Clau wrong Pill costly sures Many weeks ago in close co operation with United states economic but waited until after or. Thieu s re elec Tion before announcing them. This did not prevent the Mea ures from being linked with he . Senate s recent Aid even by the minister him Elf. He said the Washington decision was a Good Opportunity or the Sputh vietnamese to vake up and free themselves rom foreign dependence. The economic package is so vast in its ramifications that it will take several months to assess its effectiveness. Broadly it has two main Aims. One is to increase government revenues through a simplified and improved system of direct taxation and customs charges. The second is to create conditions for the promo Tion of exports. During the past 12 months the government has been relatively successful in stabilizing the War inflated Economy. London educated or.

At present South Vietnam counts on receiving about million a rear in various kinds of eco Omic Aid from the . The budgetary Gap will have o be met by a combination of taxation and Export revenues including income from the Oil now known to lie off South Viet Nam s shores. Or. Ngoc also intends to con front the generals with de mands that they trim the size of the armed forces which at present Swallow 60 per cent of the budget we need the fighters but the army has too Many men shuffling the immediate result of the new economic package has been to Send consumer prices up. Despite the abolition of in popular austerity taxes Many imported goods Are dearer be cause of the devaluation and higher customs charges. Amid these Belt tightening measures the South Vietnam Ese hardly noticed president Nixon s recent announcement of further troop withdrawals. If anything perhaps or. Nix on s statement was better than Saigon had expected and his commitment to maintain a residual Force unless there is a negotiated settlement Watt especially welcomed. Los Angeles a a drug firm that filled a faulty birth control prescription for a woman will have to pay in expenses to raise her unexpected child.

He is not unwanted but he is Sewalz began to realize that War could not be separated from governments and classes. War is not simply an invasion in which peace is violated and then restored Lenin interposed. The High regard with which Lenin and Friedrich Engels held the incisive works of von Clausewitz no doubt go far to explain his new stature in East Ger Many. When the general was again Laid to rest with full military honors the Cere Mony was attended by High ranking East German generals and the director of the German Institute of Mili tary history one col. Prof. Or. Reinhard Bruhl. Von Clausewitz was a re former of the first order. In 1809, together with the chief of the prussian department of War Gen. Gerhard von Scharnhorst he introduced Universal conscription ended the system under which Only noblemen could become officers forbade the recruitment of foreign soldiers and abolished Cor poral punishment. All this made for a satisfied army and an efficient fighting machine. It led to the de fear of Napoleon s armies at Leipzig in 1813. Von Clausewitz also briefly served As a general against Napoleon in the tsar s army. This personification of the Russo German Alliance also explains Why the East Ger Man communists who have been referred to As the red prussians now Call von Clausewitz an out standing Patriot who served the National and social liberation of the German peo ple by military von Clausewitz joins a thin line of. Prussian Mili tary men who enjoy favor in an East Germany which heaps abuse on most other great men of German history. They include four of his contemporaries in the War of liberation against Napo Leon Scharnhorst Prince Blucher of Wahlstad Wellington s ally at Neithardt von Greisen a and Yorck von Wartenburg. Their statues now stand in a Small Park on East Ber Lin s Unter Den Linden. Across the Road in front of the memorial to the Vic Tims of fascism and militarism the former Royal prussian guard House a remarkable ceremony is enacted each Day.
