I misunderstood you. Your original statement was:

Hence, I thought you were questioning the Soviet boycott itself. This was
a rich time in political commentary in both the US and UK and a review of
TIME, US NEWS & WORLD REPORT, or THE ECONOMIST for the era should yield
rich rewards. And you might consider reading Bill Mauldin's UP FRONT IN
KOREA or TR Fehrenbach's THIS KIND OF WAR (a history of the Korean War) and
THIS KIND OF PEACE (an analysis of the UN), all of which are contemporary
with the War.
