Reporter notes Europe's attitude to United States protection since World War II; threats to send troops since V-J Day cited and except in Korea, when done, United States has been alone. Then comes Vietnam and Nixon declared United States would afterward send supplies, but no forces; this done in Zaire, with Morocco, Egypt, France and West Germany giving actual or verbal military aid to forestall USSR -backed invasion.
