SOVIET REPUBLICS-Industrial Growth, Agricultural Instability

to bring about a reconciliation between the two warring parties by imposing restrictions on the left, Israel may not intervene. But if the leftists takeover Lebanon, Israel will intervene and may occupy southern Lebanon. Though the Soviet Union has complained that US ships have been moving into the Me- diterranean, direct US intervention is unlikely. The US wants to use the regional powers in accordance with its doctrine of letting Asians light Asians to suppress the liberation movements in the region, just as has been happening in Dhofar. The reactionary Arab regimes certainly do not want the leftists to come to power in Lebanon, for the revolutionary tide may not remain confined to a particular country and may sweep other parts of the Arab world.
