ABSTRACT
This article focuses on matters of political interest which have been in news in the United States. The journal "The New Republic," has repeatedly asked a two-part question about Indo-China concerning the policy of the U.S. in Southeast Asia and the measures it proposes to take. Answers have come. The U.S. administration has decided to do whatever is needed to win in Southeast Asia--if necessary it will commit U.S. ground forces. This has not been announced with complete candor for two reasons. 1) U.S. diplomat John Foster Dulles is determined to find a formula for Southeast Asia which will gain the acquience not only of France and Indo-China, but of Britain, Australia, New Zealand and India as well and so through "united action," avoid the use of American troops.
