- Such intervention is clearly in violation of Articles 15 and 17 of the O.A.S. Charter and Article 2, Paragraph 4 of the U.N. Charter.
- Such intervention will undo all gains in Western Hemispheric relations made by “Good Neighbor Policy,” “Alliance for Progress” and The Peace Corp and, indeed, by the lessening of Cold War Tensions since 1963.
- Such intervention to deter revolutions claimed by our Government to be incompatible with U.S. interests will, of course, be continual because of unstable political and socio-economic conditions in Latin America.
