    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 4: KISSINGER: "If you compare their conduct in this crisis to the conduct in 1967, one has to say that Soviet behaviour has been less provocative, less incendiary, and less geared to military threats than in the previous crisis. We did not consider the Soviet statement to the President of Algeria helpful; we did not consider the airlift of military equipment helpful; we also do not consider that Soviet actions as of now constitute the irresponsibility that on Monday evening I pointed out would threaten detente. When that point is reached, we will in this crisis, as we have in other crisis, not hesitate to take a firm stand".
