The New Mood of France Is Realism But Not Defeatism

Gorrell, Frank
June 1954
New Republic;6/28/54, Vol. 130 Issue 26, p10
This article focuses on citizens opinion regarding international affairs. What about the people, what are they concerned with most at a time when the attitude and conduct of their country are directly and immediately linked with urgent measures for assuring the safe survival of the free world? In Asia, there can be no doubt about the answer. They are far more concerned with saving the expeditionary force than with saving Indo-China itself either for the French Union or for the free world. This does not mean that a majority of Frenchmen have given up the Vietnam as lost, it means that they are willing to pay a political price to save something from the wreckage, and above all, no more blood-letting.
