What Asia Needs

Straight, Michael
January 1955
New Republic;1/24/55, Vol. 132 Issue 4, p8
The article focuses on the U.S. policy in Asia. The eminent and conservative Indian newspaper, the Times of India, expresses well the shift that is taking place today in Asian opinion. To the Times the central question of foreign policy, since the Asian nations gained their independence, has been: "What do we hold in common with the democratic West?" Now a new question is asked instead: "What do we hold in common with Communist Asia?" The question led the five Colombo powers to organize the coming Afro-Asian Conference. Asian solidarity, the concept is deplorable; and like the conference itself, reactionary in its delineation of color as a dividing line across mankind.
