Example text

The Soviet Union is one of New Zealand's largest export markets. It can hardly pose a threat at the same time as it absorbs so much of New Zealand's goods. The feeling is that the build-up is aimed as much against China as against any other country. It is salutory to note that the United States is now perceived as the second most likely country to pose a military threat to New Zealand. For an analysis of New Zealanders' world view and threat perceptions, see the Report of Defence Committee of Enquiry, Defence and Security: What New Zealanders Want (Wellington, New Zealand: Government Printer, 1986).

These are features that have characterised ANZUS; from its signature in 1951 (it was ratified by all three members: Australia, the United States and New Zealand, in 1952), it was widely regarded, at least outwardly, as a pragmatic and flexible arrangement functioning as its members wished. Never a military alliance as such, comprising standing forces, a joint command, or even a secretariat, ANZUS in intent and practice has been supported by its member governments as much for what it symbolises and promises, as for what it might ever deliver by way of tangible security guarantees.

An early hint of this was conveyed, shortly after the Treaty was signed, by Assistant Secretary of State, Dulles, 34 Roderic Alley to General Douglas MacArthur, then still Supreme Commander Allied Powers in Japan. Dulles claimed of ANZUS that: 'While it commits each party to take action (presumably to go to war), it does not commit any nation to action in any part of the world.
