September 1953
New Republic;9/14/53, Vol. 129 Issue 7, p2
The article presents updates from the U.S., as of September 14, 1953. The U.S. did not win the physical war in Korea but cannot bring herself to admit it that it may easily prolong an old war or even produce a new war. Another update says that the U.S. Administration deserves support and sympathy in the painful but necessary task of ending the bloody struggle there without getting the United States sucked further into Asia, while Soviet Union laughs at the U.S. But it is hard to give support to an Administration that seems afraid to lay the true situation before the people or to help in formulating realistic public opinion.
