    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: DOUGLAS-HOME: "In many parts of the world today men are fighting. Victims are falling to the bullet, shell and the grenade. All too often these victims are innocent civilian bystanders, and it isn't much comfort Mr. President, to the widow or the orphan that no war has been declared. It is time for us in this assembly squarely to face the fundamental unacceptable dangers of condoning those who take the law into their own hands. We must call no those who have taken up arms to lay them down and once again to submit themselves to the rule of law."
