Jackson: NATO vote would raise questions, News briefs, Feb. 10 - 16, Vol 9, No 5
Being an American of Slovak-born parents, I was ashamed at the way the Western Allies turned their backs on Czechoslovakia at that very critical time. I was very young at the time, but my parents told me later, and I read all I could on the second world war to try and find the answers. Had the Allies had a little backbone when it was crucially needed, none of the terrible consequences that followed would have happened. All they had to do was call Hitler's bluff, because Germany was not ready for a confrontation with anyone. But, unfortunately, we all know what happened, and we will have to live with that forever.
