(Studio) Comment introduced.

(DC) Spread of weapons around world deplored. United States contributes to this. Middle East compared to Balkans. Lebanon situation noted. Vietnam war recalled. In Lebanon, United States thought to be responsible for Lebanon tragedy. Slaying of diplomats should come as no surprise. Hitler's big lie recalled. 2nd big lie said to be that United States is prime villain in world affairs. Communists feed this lie. United States press in free rpting. gives it spurious authenticity. Academic revisionist historians imply United States started the cold war. United States should clear its own head with regard to itself.
