The article cautions the ascendancy of the left-leaning coalition of the Social Democratic Party, Free Democratic Party and the Green Party in the aftermath of parliamentary elections in West Germany on March 6, 1983. This scenario would have implication on U.S. defense strategy and on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). For one, West Germany is the first line of defense of NATO. Another is the request of the U.S. to deploy Pershing II and cruise missiles to neutralize the Soviet.
