In a major address on July 4, 1962, the U.S. President called for a partnership between the U.S. and Europe. The Atlantic Community beckons as the great hope of the 1960s. The possibility of establishing a vital Atlantic system is indeed one of the great opportunities of the time. However, obstacles are in the way of the Atlantic Alliance. And it is the purpose of the author of this article to explore some problems on the alliance. For instance, according to the President's Special Assistant for National Security Affairs, the disagreement about nuclear matters has impaired the communication of the U.S. with France.
