"President Johnson's deci
sion to send marines into the
Dominican Republic," he said,
"was very ill-advised and con
trary to the best interests of
the United States."
He said that sending ma
rines into Latin American was
against the philosophy under
lying the Organization of
American States and adds to
the bad legacy that the United
States has been trying to live
down in Latin America since
the 1930's.
Meyer pointed out that the
only real reason that we sent
marines to the island was be
cause Johnson thought that
Communists had infiltrated
the junior officer movement

throw the junta in power and
restore the old president.

trying to change and reform
the present government.
"The marines pushed the
two anti groups, the Commu
nists and the junior officers,
together," he said.
He explained that by choos
ing to militantly support the
present status quo, conserva
tive government, the Ameri
cans are forcing those who
want to reform the govern
ment to join with the com
munists. "The United States is in
danger," he said, "of failing
to support reform-minded gov
ernments, government on the
democratic left."
Meyer pointed out that if
the United States somehow
helped these people who are
only seeking to reform their
government, the United States
"would steal the thunder from
Communism and decrease the
Communistic threat in coun
tries seeking reform."
"News dispatches," he said,
"indicate that Communist ac
tivity is stronger now in the
Republic than what it was, but
they still haven't taken over
leadership. The Communists
seem content to let the ma
rines make converts for them
to Communism."
