War Jitters in Europe

Crozier, Brian
October 1982
National Review;10/1/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 19, p1202
This article focuses on the rumors related to war in Europe. The author tries to find a distinction between reports and rumors, on the one hand, and legitimate speculation, on the other. To look at the former first, French intelligence was rumored to know of plans for an invasion of Western Europe. This year's summer maneuvers by the Warsaw Pact armies were said to be a dress rehearsal for the real thing, to be launched in August 1983. Then there was a report in the interesting Canadian publication "Our Canada," to the effect that reserve officers in the Baltic Republics of the USSR had been warned to prepare for war in the near future. This brings the author back to the rumors and reports and why he disbelieves them. He feels that reports have the hallmarks of a Soviet disinformation exercise.
