RE: Korea War II
at NG summer camp when they started the Berlin Blockade, and was very surprised
that Harry didn't keep us and open the road to Berlin by force. In retrospect,
we would have avoided a lot of trouble later on if we had drawn the line
of the reason we didn't bust the blockade was that McCarthy was a piker in
his charges of communist infiltration of our government and our army, where
communists held far more positions than McCarthy ever suspected. We never had a
secret from communism that amounted to anything.

Bob, in '50 we still had a large army in Europe to hold back
And it had first
priority for defense needs as the feeling in Washington was that Korea was a
side show, with the biggest threat being to Western Europe. NATO had just been
established to counter this.
