KISSINGER SPEAKING AT PODIUM: "The people of Rhodesia and the neighbouring states now face a supermen challenge. Their ability to work together, capacity to unify will be tested in the months ahead as never before. There may be some countries who see a chance for advantage in fuelling the flames of war and racial hatred, but they are not motivated by concern for the peoples of Africa or peace, and if they succeed they could doom opportunities which might never return."
