Perhaps the most important change in the overall equation of Soviet strategy that has taken place is the result of apparent improvement in Soviet military capabilities over the past 5 years. Thus, while Moscow's strategy in the past has been largely defense-except in terms of propaganda, subversion, and political warfare is likely that her newly acquired global mobility may tempt her to engage in some overseas military adventures. I would anticipate, unhappily, that we are going to have more problems with the Soviets in the seventies than we did with them in the fifties and sixties.
