ABSTRACT
The article focuses on alliances in foreign affairs. In all alliances of the U.S., though the forms are multilateral, the lines that pass in and out of Washington, bilaterally, have a special importance. Even in North Atlantic Treaty Organization, where there are other powers of major importance and where the general hope is that a new Europe may engage with us in a new level of partnership, there is great significance in the lines from London or Bonn to Washington. The troubled state of America's relations with France leads naturally to the question of nuclear relations among allies. What is urgently important here is not the question of what role Europeans may come to play. That is a major question and a most difficult one, but it needs sober thought and discussion, probably continuing for a long time ahead. In such discussion the U.S. will aim to play a fully responsive part. The U.S. has not made its pledge to the defense of Europe in any Iighthearted or limited way, for the fulfillment of commitments most solemnly and advisedly undertaken, its whole strength serves the whole North Atlantic area.
