Transcript 9- General Chennault, do you think the American people are aware of all of this? Do you believe that they realize the danger? \. I think the greater portion of the people' realize thai something is lerribl) wrong bul they lack leadership. They think only of today. The Communists Ihink nol only of today, but tomorrow. ui'xi week, next vear, and years after that. I believe the American people would support a war if they heul the leadership lo win such a war. 9> Should American troops be employed in an invasion of the Chinese mainland. General Chennault? \. No, mosl certainly not. No U.S. troops should be used in any theater ol a foreign weir at presenl. In addition, ihi' Chinese Nationalists ami South Ko- reans don'l want 1 ,S. troops in an Asian war. Chinese musl light Chinese if the mainland is to he recaptured. Chiang elne-su'l even weint us lo allae-k China if we fIv mir airplanes. Ml he w ei rets is the supplies and modern equipment. 9- Have the Chinese Nationalists really been "unleashed" as has been so widely advertised? \. Certainly not. Thev have been kept severely under wraps no mailer "bat is s;ii,| in lhe contrary. Tin- real trouble wilh us is that we are slill listening In the liritish who keep assert- "ig thai there is nn use in a war againsl the Ileal Chinese. Hear ihis in mind, they (the liritish I are looking mil for themselves. 9- General Chennault, do you believe the Orient is the real danger spot in the war a9ain t the Chinese imperialists? V A ou mighl he surprised eit my Mlswer here. While I believe lhal \-iee ls the key In success against commu nism, I believe lhat the- immediate danger of weir exists nol in tin' Formosa Straits, hut in Wesl Germany. There is every indication thai the Russians are' preparing for weir in West Germany. They are afraid of the West Germans. They recognize lhal Germany, armed againsl Russia, presents a danger lo both communism ami the Russian motherland. Both nf these, the Russians ein- bound lu destro) hoih dangers, I 11117in. I also have information which indicates thai Wesi Germany is armed In ei greater extent than the Vmerican people' realize eunl lhe Russians know il. and are eifreiid nf il. Here are several indications, or signals of danger: ll) The reorganization of the' Russian hierarchy and replacement of Mal- enkm. He- weis opposed lo war. l2l Th.' frantic efforts of the Rus- siems In knock nul lhe \\ estern European I nion. They succeeded in having France knock off the European Defense Com- munity. lhe- Russians had already warned the French anil liritish thai existing bilateral pacts between lln- three nations penis which excluded the rearmament nf Germany, would he' eil an emd were iieiiinanii'iil of the Germans In In- sponsored hv either nation. Several days ago, 1 noticed thai liussiei had abrogated those pails asserting viola- lion on the pari nf the British and the French. (3) Reliable information heis come lhal lhe- Red Army is in power in the Soviel Union. One indication of that is the promotion of thirteen Red generals lo field marshals. 1 I 1 The So\ ii't I nion has shifted from a consumer economy to a full blast —China News Pholo Sep Guerrilla leaders gather to plan carefully for a night raid on the Reds. wen economy. A new, tighter conscription law has just been passed. 15) There is every indication thai the Russians are building up their European armies. In short, the Russians will fight the rearmament of West Germany and intend lo keep such from happening even if il means all-out war. 9- General, what is the Japanese position in all of this? Better stated, what is the Soviet position towards Japan? \. Ml of a sudden, after ten years eif advocating onh the harshest terms eunl treatment of the Japs. Russia siul- denly wants In talk peace. The objeel is. of course, to keep Japan neutral. \s I said, Russia will go lo war in Ger- many, hoping lo have ;i neutral Japan al her back door. We would not be able lo use' Japanese bases lei bomb Manchuria while thev. in turn, could bypass Japan and go north In lake' Alaska. The Japanese eire presently negated. They presenl mi real danger to the Russians except use of Japan as ei weir base. 9- In case of a Russian attack against the U.S., how do you suppose it will come, General Chennault? V First, bv a paralyzing air attack utilizing nuclear and thermonuclear weapons. This will he- accompanied by strikes, sabotage, confusion, and the deliberate spreading uf terror. Thev will throw caution lo the winds and utilize every weapon eit their command in the event of weir. As I said before, there is no sel Communisl timetable. They want to conquer the world, think the) can do ii. ami are taking their time and utilizing every means. 9- Have the Washington officials taken your and General MacArthur's advice to any appreciable extent? \. Only slightly. Thev hen,', however, come lo the' realization thai some' line must he' se-l lei heilt Communist aggression. Thev are beginning in arm lhe Chinese Nationalists In semu' extenl and they arc aiding them economically. Pul the Nationalists need more, much more. So do lhe South Koreans. Actually, lhe situation is better under the presenl administration than cmt before. God knows wheel would have happened under the alternative. 9- General Chennault, have you any specific word of advice to give the American people at this point? \. Yes, Jim. I have. Search hard for the truth and back it when you find it. You will have trouble finding il because yem are' nut being lold lhe truth in these' days. If the Presidenl sens we musl fight, back him up ami insist thai the Congress do the same. No matter how or whal you may ihink of Eisenhower, remember thai he is far superior lee anything we have heul nr anything thai the alternative offered. Fight for the truth emd you slutll steiv free. Forget il. emd vou will become slaves. ACTS FORUM NEWS, May, I'l'e, Pane 37
