Abstract : The essay examines the Warsaw Pact in terms of continuing or new roles. The essay contends that Soviet national interest regards the alliance as a political instrument to secure its beginning over East Europe. New changes instituted since the Czech crisis have not demonstrated the military reliability and effectiveness of East European forces. An all-European security conference taken together with related issues is apt to place strains upon the Pact's viability. Tentative conclusions as to likely directions to be pursued by the Pact over the next decade are provided. (Author)
