Editorial: Must We Fight in Indo-China?

May 1954
New Republic;5/3/54, Vol. 130 Issue 18, p7
This article focuses on the U.S. policy regarding the war in Indo-China. An illusion arose within the U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower Administration that the U.S. could, by threats and bluffs, redress the military balance in Indo-China. This year the U.S. is providing $800 million in weapons and ammunition for Indo-China and yet the military balance is turning steadily in favor of the Communist side. Eisenhower stated on February 10, 1954 that no one could be more bitterly opposed than he to involvement in Indo-China. Then he fell silent. The British and the Asian nations have refused to join military action to hold Indo-China for the French.
