Kissinger, Henry. Department of State. "The Secretary's Analytical Staff Meeting on Non-Proliferation, Friday, August 2, 1974 3:00 p.m." (1974). http://www2.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/nukevault/ebb467/
p.41-42: SECRETARY KISSINGER: I just have a reluctance to have the United States go charging around the world, like Don Quixote, for every conceivable problem, including one of great importance, when there are other countries whose interest in it ought to be even greater, who affirm loudly that they are interested in it, and not make them share some of the responsibility.
We still wind up in a leading position. Many of the sanctions we are talking about would have to be ours.
