Smith, Walter Bedell
December 1949
Saturday Evening Post;12/31/1949, Vol. 222 Issue 27, p28
The article explores the possibility of the Soviet Union and the U.S. to be in the chasm of war and analyzes the power between the two states to win a war. An agreement of opinions of communists stated the impossibility for the two systems to live together in peace unless the U.S. withdrew from Europe and a change in Soviet foreign policy. According to the author, U.S. is still stronger than Soviet Union even if Soviet Union will increase its economic power than U.S. do. in the future.
