Last year, 259 Chileans were trained at the Army school; courses for this ys ar will include flying operations, comnitmications, administration, and the studiously open-ended "military tech- niques and practices." Seve ml justifications have been offered for th s wide variety of military aid, a consitliwable increase over expenditures before the coup. Whatever logic exists for pi 3viding more military assistance to Chile seems to be more than counter- bala d by the detrimental impact of pouriu arms and munitions into the hands of a demonstrably repressive mili- tary junta. Finn, the Defense Department has In- dicated i that aid to Chile is "simply a con- tinuat?on of the long standing and f r iensi y relationship between the U.S. Armed Forces and their Chilean coun- terpar s, and reflected our mutual- rurity interest and a Chilean preference for coatinuing this relationship."

A third argument that was presented mitt by Secretary of De- h t t MONTHLY NI-- WSLE'rrER HON. WILMR MIZELL OF NORTH MWLINA IN THE HOUSE OF IM PRES13NTATIVES m eco, S. o tense James Schlesinger during the Thursday, Ar-ust 1, 1974 hearings on this bill holds that a termi- nation of U.S. military assistance to Latin American countries would "simply encourage thein to make their"military purchases elsewhere.. This is inconsistent with a foreign policy which seeks strong regional associations with the nations of Western Hemisphere." Later he states that we ought not "leave the supply of arms largely to those outside this hem- isphere." The facts surrounding possible arms sales to Chile from foreign coun- tries clearly refute these assertions. Of the major weapons suppliers besides the United States, none appear'as VIlling as this administration _to provide arms to the Chilean junta. The British govern- ment announced, on April '10-1 1974, a termination of` military aid to Chile. No now 'arms exports were to be ` licensed, and servicing for already delivered fight- ers has since been terminated. The new President of France has indicated that his country will seriously reconsider any weaix ns sales to governme=its such as be expected to arm a right-viing mili- tarry government. That leaves the United States in the unique position of virtually controlling the supply of available weap- ons t- the Chilean junta. At this time, with little effect on our` policy of, in Mr. Schlesinger's words, "seeking strong re- giorial associations," we can drive home to th,e Cliitean junta our' displeasure with their policies and assert our fermi- liatfozl of military support. mailed my monthly iewsletter for July 1974 to my constituel ? s in the Fifth Con- gressional District of North Carolina.
