Offensive Or Defensive ?
President Kennedy has decided to allow defensive weapons to
remain in Cuba. The question now is what constitutes a defensive
or an offensive weapon. The average American, when he thinks
of offensive weapons, usually mentally pictures long-range mis
sies, bomber planes, long-range artillery and so forth.
But are not all weapons of war really offensive in the final
analysis? There ds no weapon which does not go from one point
or place to another, no matter whether it is an arrow from a bow,
lead from a cartridge of some type, or a Polaris missile from
A “defensive” weapon can very quickly and easily become
an offensive one, if the situation and need arises. The machine
gun emplacements which surround the U. S. Naval Base at
Guantanamo are now defensive. Would not a shot from one of
these guns fired into the base convert these defensive weapons
into offensive weapons?
The United Nations has a special fund from which are alloted
sums to countries to be used for internal improvements and de
velopments. Recently nearly $1.25 million dollars was earmarked
for agricultural developments in Cuba. The U. S. Contributes
40 per cent of this fund, while Russia contributes 15 per cent.
Again the U. S. seems to be carrying the heaviest part of the
burden of a U. N. financial ^transaction. When the bill for the
U. N.’s activities in the Congo was totalled, and it was learned
■that this was the ifinal unbearable debt to the money-plagued
U. N., President Kennedy proposed that the U. S. purchase mil
lions of doUars worth of U. N. bonds to prevent this institution
from toppling. The U. S. taxpayer could console himself by see
ing more of his money going outside the States.
The U. N.’s allocation of this money for use in Cuba was not
at all well received by the lawmakers in Washington. They feel,
as certainly do most Atmericans, that to allow Cuba to strengthen
herself agriculturally or in any other manner is a great mistake,
since Cuba is definitely Communist. Although Castro at first pro
claimed that his was not a Russian Communist leaning, events
lately have certainly proved this to be quite untrue.
