The Likelihood of War

April 1956
New Republic;4/16/56, Vol. 134 Issue 16, p3
The article discusses the likelihood of a full-scale Arab-Israel war. Heretofore, both American and British negotiators had believed that the Russians, by their Egyptian arms deal, wanted only to stir up trouble in the Middle East, short of war. Now, it is plausible to believe the Soviets may have decided that a small, Korea-type war is to its advantage. In the Middle East, the backlash of war could jeopardize, and possibly eliminate British and American interests. Great Britain, France and the U.S. have reacted to this Middle East crisis with widely differing emphasis.
