He told tho Intcr-Amcrloan de- fense conference that this "Is In no way a threat" because "no great nation has been more reluctant than ours to use armed forces.1 But, he said, "Our aversion to violence must not be misread as a lack of determination on our part to live up to the obligations of the United Nations charter or as an Invitation to others to take liber- ties with the foundations of Inter- national peace. "Our military strength will be retained as evidence of tho serious- ness with which v.'e view our ob- ligations."
