Re-examination of NATO

May 1956
New Republic;5/14/56, Vol. 134 Issue 20, p4
This article analyses several changes in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), as proposed by the U.S. Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles. The root of the trouble is obvious. NATO is an alliance of 15 nations founded in 1949-50 on the conviction that the overriding danger is Soviet Union's military attack. The issues confronting NATO can be reduced to one issue of basic principle and two of policy. The principle at issue is that national actions of any NATO member, which affect world peace, or arouse the fears of heretofore colonial countries, or provide an opening wedge for Soviet propaganda, are of justifiable concern to all NATO members, and should be discussed in some NATO body.
