Straight, Michael
March 1955
New Republic;3/14/55, Vol. 132 Issue 11, p7
The article discusses about Great Britain's Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill's thesis for nuclear disarmament. Churchill's address of March 1, 1955, is a major endeavor to grapple with the greatest challenge that confronts the world. It's phrasing, as always, is incomparable. Its courage, in sharing with the public the terrible dilemmas of government, is admirable. Its motivating decision that Great Britain should construct her own stockpile of nuclear weapons may well be sound and must at least seem reassuring to the United States. And yet from its greatest spokesman the Western World might have asked for more.
