Dunkirk Evening Observer (Newspaper) - November 2, 1968, Dunkirk-Fredonia, New York6evening november editorials a Short step toward peace Don Oakley Holiday for election the agonizingly slow movement to Ward peace in Vietnam has advanced one More step with president John sons order for cessation of the bomb ing of North far from making instant peace the action is a relatively Small but it presumably opens the Way for talks about a major withdrawal of american and North vietnamese leaving South vietnamese and Viet Cong forces to fight it negotiations Over this next critical action Are most Likely to be Long and drawn out if past experience in Deal ing with communist trained bargain ers is in the weeks and months that talks Are expected to both americans and North vietnamese can be expected to hurry the Pace of equipping and training the South vietnamese forces which each it has taken five months of talking to reach this preliminary there should be no real expectation that subsequent stages can be reached any More there can be some since it is possible the secret talks going on outside the Paris conference room May have reached out beyond the immediate problem and Laid ground work for later most observers Are agreed that the outcome will depend More on what happens in South Vietnam than on what happens in the ability of the South vietnamese government Bruce Biossat and of the Viet Cong to maintain morale and discipline among their troops will play a larger part in the final reckoning than will the Mere matter of adequate deter mining factors will be psychological and political As they were before the vast military escalation was be so much for the vietnamese the effect on american Domestic politics could be the whether calculated or for is such that the Hope for peace will be bolstered through elec Tion Day without the letdown which May come if the subsequent peace negotiations drag you cant Knock anything which even resembles Progress to Ward intriguing thought we realize that the United states cant be policeman for the whole but it be interesting if just just for a troops moved in and zapped a Bunch of no communists who overthrew a reasonably democratic government the military clique that ousted the constitutionally elected president of Panama it would certainly Surprise a lot of latin who have historic ally suffered from dictatorships of the not of the Richard not the lion hearted Richard Nixon who seems to be on the verge of election As the next president of the United states is fundamentally a non and no one can easily guess what that portends for his prospective performance in the White the hallmark on his 1968 quest for the presidency is its Bent to Ward in vote getting the Republican nominee has had one overriding keep control of the Situa this does not mean that he has taken no just to run for the office is to risk los he decided to enter the Spring primaries at a time when he expected serious rivalry from George Romney of Michigan and conceivably could have lost one or More at the last he has opened himself to the major panel shows after shunning them for two he has talked a great Deal in knowing that any one who does that will be subject to criticism of varying intensity from Many the overwhelm ing evidence is that he has done Only so much political gambling As he deemed for on the decision to enter the primaries an aide says he really had no he had to act to try to eliminate his losers image from 1960 and on the matter of finally appearing on panel the signs Are Strong that he agreed when he and some members of his staff became concerned that his no involvement in open de Bate with vice president Humphrey and his limited exposure to hard questioning was Leav ing the impression he feared such but it seems unassailable judgment that he does not like the uncertainty inherent in the freewheeling press conference or his management of himself is Best when he has care fully anticipated difficulty and moved in Advance to Cope with he does not like the unexpected and More than once has been shaken by the hard debate challenges of the late John Kennedy in 1960 threw Nixon off programmed stride and he never really re covered that poor relations with the press in that Campaign and in his 1962 bid for the Cali fornia governorship also disconcerted him and damaged his so granted his taking the inevitable risk of running at All after having lost Nixon has acted in 1968 to anticipate Trou ble and Blunt it from the he has dealt smoothly and efficiently with the press while never really exposing himself to the worst uncertainties in he has shied away from debate encounters whose consequences could not be foreseen or even As he ran in the Primar ies against limited or no opposition As it turned he consistently applied relatively mild pressures to win other Conven Tion and while this truly served party it also Cut his risks of making in this election Cam he has known for months that he is Riding the Crest of a National Law and order he has arrayed himself on the Side of troubled millions who can elect though he if he be president of All the peo he has not reached out to draw in resentful angry War Campus trouble he is not bridging the Gap it is his deliberate Choice not to reach to do he is to touch the disrupter and risk the Wrath of the troubled and hence risk not Tak ing that he leaves to the nation the risk of discover ing How he would govern All the people if elected on other voices the russian Empire the czechs have Given in to Force Majure on All Points and Moscow still int pravda complains because the czech people Are still allowed to show and express dislike of rus sians and recent russian As the process of russian digestion of Czechoslovakia continues it becomes increasingly Clear what this is All Moscow is treating Czechoslovakia As a conquered prov Ince of Dubcek and his associates in last Springs allot Brief reformation have been Given a very simple they Are allowed to be the instruments of russian Power in their own or Russia will Rule Czechoslovakia and which is worse for dub Cek does he play the role of Quisling or does he surrender his countrymen to the Fate of Lithuania and Estonia those were once the names of both nations and they Are now merely the names for geographic parts of the soviet the and lithuanian Peoples have been broken up and scattered throughout other parts of the russian they can never be put together the danger to the czech people is All too clearly either they must pretend to love their russian or will up a scattered and their Homes and villages and cities will be resettled by Western diplomats and writ ers Grope for ways of describing and identifying what has some Call it a return of some see in it Evi Dence of the implacable greed of the real truth of the matter is that Russia is behaving exactly As Russia has behaved throughout most of its this is the worst Fea Ture of czarist All Over communism has nothing to do with the Russia has not invaded Czechoslovakia for the Sake of but in spite of the fact that both coun tries Are Inci dentally also the cause of world communism has been set Back More than by anything before done from this is the Way ancient Rome consolidated its it is the Way the ancient russian state grew from being merely the duchy of Moscow into being the present vast russian pm Peoples were and incorporated into the rus Sian those who continued to resist were broken up and this is old style russian Des it is it is it is it is it is totally Call and it is above typically any of the czars would have Dane the same Czechoslovakia from 1945 Down to the Spring of an autonomous province of the russian it was allowed to run its own internal affairs because its leaders Over most of that period were the worst sycophants in the whole it was nauseating to see their flaunted adulation of Russia and everything russian during the worst it was the Only province of the Empire which even put red stars on the front of All railway then the czechs reasserted they decided that they wanted again to be inde they wished to escape from the russian Empire As they had escaped from the aus Trian Empire after they had lived for three centuries As austrian it was a Long their escape was decisive in destroying that ancient if they had made Good their escape from the russian Empire this year they might also have been decisive in set Ting off the breakup of that pm some Day it will break the serious question for the czechs is whether they will still be a nation living in their pres ent lands when that breakup the Price will be but perhaps its better than be ing broken up and scattered All Over Joseph harsh in the Christian Sci ence we already
