Transcript —Photo by Anna Chenredeilt Sun-Moon Lake, Taiwan thousands of Chinese The Communists tecruil millions of innocenl country kids who are taught how to use ei gun. given • few rudiments of the military, and are *enl to battle. These raw recruits are S|'ni in. wave after wave, to exhausl the enemy ammunition supply. Then the Communists si-mi in their trained and "allli'heiiili'ilcil shock troops. As I seliel. 'I is reported thai the ,l ikianshan opera- ''on resulted in more' than 2.000 dead Chinese Reds. That weis a small opera- Bon. 9- General Chennault, isn't that about [he same idea as was employed by the Russians against the Germans in the late War? A. The Chinese' Keel Army is ;t Communisl army, ll- leaders are trained by Soviets I., ns.. Soviel battle tactics. The '"unan wave idea is utilized because Were is no compunction against sen i i- ueing hundreds of thousands of men in -' wasteful slaughter against an enemy. 9- What is the present condition of the Chinese Red Air Force? A. It s in good shape. Ii is equipped *ith th,- latesl jets MIC-17's an- re- Ported le, be in North China, ll has Werally hundreds of lln- older MIG-15's. Moreover, il heis been equipped with '"' heavy, four-motored Tl -34 bomber, "nich is ee COpj of our B-29. These- would I,., used against Taiwan and were ]|SI|I l'i pleislc i ikianshan. Thev would '"'Ve I,,.,.,| used elgelinsl the' Teichens held "*t been necessary. 9. What about the Red Chinese Navy? V. W.ll. ii kepi "l ikianshan under the "'•nicsl kind ol fire for sixty-four °°urs from all sides, ll is ei lighl ship Bavy. Menu small fast \,'ss,'ls' heavil) "trnored. 9. General, what is the thinking of the Ch d°m "lese people? Would they choose free- under Chiang if they were given the chance? , -^- Ihe In si evidence of this is. I '''i'-M'. the- action of the prisoners of war who absolutely refused to return ie. ihe- mainland. Thousands of them left Keel China lo come lo Taiwan and freedom under lhe Generalissimo. There is thc guerrilla activity where in one mainland province there were over 5,000 reports of guerrilla activity in one year committed againsl the Reds. Finally, the Tachen people refused to a man and woman to he left behind. Chinese Communist propaganda would have you believe thai these people were forced to go. The lie is readily given, by lhe American officers, who were- on the spot. 1 really believe thai the mainland Chinese desire the- return of Chiang. 9- General, will appeasement settle the war in Asia? \. The' Communists understeind onh power. They will have to hi' decisively beaten. As 1 have seiid before, lhe onh way to do that is with ;i two-front attack against them. They could nol stand such a double envelopment maneuver and they know il heller than anybody else However, the lime for such an operation is running out. Their transportation setup is gelling better and. as this happens, the' chance for a successful two- front operation runs out. 9- Just how is the Communist Chinese rail net organized, General? Has it been improved since last year when we discussed the situation? A. If you will remember, I told you thai thev were' attempting to conned Peiping with Moscow with a line running across the Gobi Desert. Now the lasl. stretch from I Ian-Bator lo Peiping has lie-en completed. .Also, the lines from North China to the [ndochinese border are complete. It is reported thai lhe' Hanoi-China spur is in readiness which, in short, links Moscou with Hanoi. There are new railroads being built all over \siei hy the Communists. 9- General, will there ever be peace in Asia so long as the Communists hold the mainland? A. Absolutely nol. The' Chinese mainland is the key lei the Orient. Moreover, communism is an aggressive, warlike ideology. Everything they think aboul is devoted lo weir. While' they rule tic mainland of China, Asiei will know only war. 9- What about the overseas Chinese, General? What are they thinking these days? Are they siding with Chiang or the Reds? A. I firmly believe iheii nearly all overseas Chinese are really loyal to Chiang. This excludes Indonesia anil the Malay Stales where Ihe Chinese population is being swaveal ley ihe Communists. Thev are under heavy pressure by the Communists lo "rejoin the motherland." Especially in Indonesia is thi the case. If the Indonesian Chinese join forces wilh the Comnnmisls. that nation is lost. In facl. tin- fulure of all Indonesia ele-pe-nd- nn which way the Chinese turn and lhe outcome of lhe battle soon to take place in the Kinmen-Matsu area will largely determine the allegiance of the Indonesian Chinese, lu addition lo all of this, lhe Communists are making appeals to large' numbers of Chinese' young people overseas eis students. They are', anil have been, greatly successful. Onlv recently have ihe Nationalist sparked a similar program. Chinese' populations all over Asia will determine Asia s futinc. 9. General Chennault, do you think that the United States should recognize the Chinese Communist Government? A. I ndi-r no circumstances. Morally, this would he ei tragedy. Diplomatically, it would he a terrible defeat and militarily, it would la- worse' than terrible. The' Communists look China hy force of arms.
