Anglo-US Policy: Adrift in the Suez

Massingham, Hugh
August 1956
New Republic;8/13/56, Vol. 135 Issue 7, p9
In this article, the author focuses on the Anglo-American policy regarding economic assistance to Suez, Egypt. In brusquely refusing to grant Egypt any money for the Aswan Dam, Egypt, the U.S. and Great Britain have given an example of how these things should not be done. This dam was always more than an industrial project. It was a symbol of Egypt's spiritual renaissance and therefore as significant as the Pyramids were in the days of the Pharaohs. In these circumstances, the Egyptian President, Gamal A. Nasser's temperament, the inept announcement of the withholding of the loan was bound to cause an explosion.
