Peace Treaty for Japan

Peace Treaty for Japan

Something had to be done but to judge by the published treaty draft what was done could have been done better. There can be no squeals from the Soviet which did exactly the same thing in regard to the Danube Treaty. Cast thy bread upon waters.... Commerce appears to have raised its head but there is element of reality and a thought for security. Previous experience convinced the free powers that round-table conferences with Russia are usually fruitless. The USSR has been fully compensated for seven days of war against Japan by her looting of Manchuria.
