The article presents an insight into the socio-political developments from around the world. International Rescue Committee executive Leo Cherne along with others concerned about the dangers of communist victories in Southeast Asia initiated an investigation of the socio-political condition of Cambodia. According to the findings, Cambodia leads the list of the criminal states and the U.S. is thought to be primarily responsible for it. U.S. President Jimmy Carter has been criticized for enforcement of the Taft-Hartley Act to end the coal miners strike in the U.S. President Carter's act was justified by the fact that further continuation of the strike even for a small period of time would have resulted in acceleration of the unemployment situation within the country. There has been discussion on issues related to incorporation of women into fighting units of the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force.
