Fries took office as senior mem- armaments by the Kremlin, while Tito's arms stocks have been depleted. Now the satellites are believed, both in Washington and Belgrade, to be capable at least of overruning the Belgrade plains. Although Tito could and would continue the fight almost indefinitely in the mountains, this slow shift in the power balance j has immensely augmented the, pressures on the Tito regime. A real economic collapse accompan- ied by widespread hunger would now increase these pressures to the breaking point. This is also believed both in Washington and Belgrade. Tito himself suggested one meaning to the West of the col- lapse ol his regime, in a recent conversation with an American. Churchill says that it would take sixty divisions to defend Eur- ope if the Russians said Tito. "You might point out to Mr. Truman and Mr. Acheson that Ij have thirty-two divisions'. More- over, if we are attacked, my divi- sions will fight." The defection of Tito has been, indeed, purely in terms of military power, a greater blow to the Kremlin ihan the loss of the Kremlin's Korean satellite. Despite inadequate armament, Tito's army is stil! the largest non-Cominform ground force in Western Eur- ope. Nor is this all. The even greater political, mean- ing of Tito's defection is under- lined by evidence that the Comin- form apparatus is secretly sup- porting not only the anti-Tito Com- munist underground, but also the underground royalist movement.
