Marshal before the House Foreign Affairs Committee about Russians destroying themselves.
MS. General George Marshall American Secretary of State seated with others round table. CU. Marshal speaking before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. (2 shots). "The only solution I see is to establish a firm front and the more resolute the front the more effective it will be. And the propaganda efforts to convey that this is an aggressive front of course, are pure propaganda. They do, they did pretty well maybe not so well in the end but of course they have an immense advantage I think its a dangerous advantage and a temporary advantage. In the 12 men decides what to do and they don't sit here like I am and have 12 others questioning me as only I am doing it or whether I will be allowed to do it. They go ahead and do it, I think in the end they destroy themselves, but doing that procedure is propaganda to press to public reactions everything is controlled, and that builds up a very powerful - line of action - but I think it generally destroys itself. The only thing is that it takes some time to do it and in the case Germany & Hitler it destroyed a good bit of the world while it was doing it." MS.People round side of room listening.
