Transcript pie eiml againsl the resl ol the world. They entered thc war in Korea in defiance of the United Nations and they have repeatedly violated the truce in Korea. In addition, they have held the United States in abject contempt, ar- rested anil tried I .S. military personnel against every article of war and they have repeatedly violated the peace of the world in lhe straits of Formosa. Indochina, and in Korea. We- simply cannol eiffe.rd to recognize pirate's. thieves, anil bandits simply because these people ein- temporarily in control of em area. 9. In connection with that, General, some politician or State Department official suggested that there be "two Chinas." Is such a thing possible? \.

Mil c-in-W iinele-r- land idea, also -p.nisi,nal iee,1 ( nited Sleile-s some ninety-five ve-ars ago.

Neither the Reds nor the Nationalists would 'Mr permit such a thing. People who talk of such a thing are- talking in a fantastic manner. Thej are not dealing wilh communism nor arc they dealing v, ith reality. 9. General, can the United States afford to allow the Communists to make any more advances? I refer to the Orient as well as the European area. \. Jim. ever) \-i.iiie- from I'eeki-iem to Japan, from Manila to New Zealand is watching our presenl action in the Kinmen-Matsu operation. I hey are waiting to see whether we "ill fight for thai which we have preached for so long Freedom eunl justice. Kinmen and Matsu are our lasl chance in all \sia. Thej arc the final test. If we permil them in be lost, we will lose the faith of every \siem citizen who will choose the -iele mosl likl'lv lei will, nellllclv the Communists. You cannol blame them.

Moreover, have you already forgotten lhe statement made hy Mem le, lhe Kllssienis lee the effect lhal he would place "every resource al his dis- pei-eil to the use of the- Russians, "Chinas elder brother?"

The' infiltration Chung San Road of Taipeh during "Double Ten" (China's Independence Day) celebration. quest, the Greater-Co-East Asia Prosperity sphere. As regards a line of march, do you feel that the Communist advance is following the same pattern with Australia as the final Asian objective? V ^ is. I do. But, \nu musl remember two things. The Chinese Communists eire much cleverer than lhe Japs. \|sn. Australia, lhe capital nf the Pacific Ocean Sea. is not their final Pacific objective. Thai objective, like- lhat of lhe Japanese, is the western shores nl the \merican hemisphere. Finally, in the' case nf eill (lommunists, il is we,rlel conquest.
