    MS (with Richard Nixon later President of the United States) and CU President Eisenhower speaking: "The action which I propose would have the following features. It would first of all authorise the US to co-operate with and assist any nation. In the general area of the Middle East in the development of economic strength dedicated to the maintenance of national independence. It would in the second place authorise the executive to undertake in the same region programmes of military assistance ... with any nation or group of nations which desire such aid. It would in the third place authorise such assistance and co-operation to include employment of the armed forces of the US to secure and protect the territorial integrity and political independence of such nations... against overt armed aggression controlled by international communists. We seek not violence but peace.
