Of Many Things

J. O'H.
April 1976
America;4/17/1976, Vol. 134 Issue 15, preceding p322
The author offers his views on the presidential political campaign issue in 1976 regarding the argument over whether Henry Kissinger really told Admiral Zumwalt that the U.S. was playing Athens to the Soviet Union's Sparta. He states that the only foreign policy issue to catch the attention of the candidates seems to be the question on who can be tougher with the Soviets. He opines that what defines the era is not the ascendancy of a Sparta over an Athens but the realization that both Spartans and Athenians live on earth with limited resources.
