Suicide of the West: Accelerating

April 1975
National Review;4/11/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 13, p380
This article presents information on various political changes taking place in the U.S. and its allies. It is reported that in Southeast Asia, Soviet-supplied forces have overrun much of South Vietnam and Cambodia seems likely to pass quickly under Communist control. In this great transfer of power, as the liberals are calling it, the human suffering is enormous and the political repercussions are likely to be profound. It is pointed that Portugal is sliding into Communist dictatorship. Its Communist Party, moreover, is slavishly pro-Moscow. The Soviets already are negotiating for naval facilities on Madeira and, according to a January report, on the Portuguese mainland. It also refers to Secretary of State Henry Kissinger's efforts to move toward accommodation in the Middle East that have collapsed. In part, at least, they collapsed because Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, refused to rely on U.S. assurances in return for key territorial withdrawals.
