Thawing Ike's Plan

July 1956
New Republic;7/23/56, Vol. 135 Issue 4, p3
This article focuses on the disarmament policy adopted by several nations during 1956. The U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower's open-skies proposal became the American pre-condition for any disarmament plan. The U.S. wrapped all disarmament issues into one package, and insisted that aerial inspection was essential to all of them. The U.S. could not accept a limited arms agreement with the Russians, even on numbers of ground troops, until Moscow accepted the open-skies proposal. The U.S. could not also agree to limit nuclear bomb testing except as part of a comprehensive control plan, including aerial inspection. American disarmament thinking had been frozen for one full year-a year in which events have cast doubt on every prior relationship between nations, and even threatened the survival of the human race.
