Transcript that is why 1 call il a police action. \\ e have lo give active support beyond any question. Ami I think as long as the Seventh Fleet is in thc straits of Formosa, lln- policies will be made right out there. MR. BURT: Then, if our battleships fire on Red China, are we actively at war with Red China? Prof. Hodges: We're- at war. Mr. Burt: Dr. Tsiang. having heard the statements of our other panel members, would you like to oppose somebody's point of view? Dr. Tsiang: I'll like to comment brief!) em Mr. Garrity's statement. I'm nee! Opposed to his viewpoint. 'I here is a greal deal lo thai viewpoint. During tin- last two years, the amount of mili- larv equipment we have received has been on an accelerated rale, bnl unfortunately we have- been very slow in building up an up-to-date air force. See in the line- eef air help, we are really very short if an invasion should take place: ami when thai does take place, air undoubtedly will play a big part. In view of lhe- fact that we have nol received tin- necessary equipment lo make- a modern air force, we would have to fall back en, I .S. active participation in the- air. Personally, I would prefer lhal we gel all lln- equipment that we can properly use-: and we, ourselves, eweiile! nol ask for I ,S. support excepl nn,Ier absolute necessity. This bailie is primarily a Chinese battle, and we want lo fight that battle as much as possible with Chinese manpower. Mr. Garrity: I believe in that thor- OUghly. I believe in giving more airplane's as fast eis we- can give- them but would define "war ;,s a place where fool -eelebeis. (il boys. American youth go; and I would reserve lhal for lln all-out death struggle-. —Wide World Photo Camouflaged Chinese Nationalist soldier creeps through underbrush during training maneuvers in southern Formosa. Page 20 China Expert Predicts All-Out War Possible Full-scale war resulting from Ked China's action in the Formosa area is definitely possible, according to General Albert C. Wedemeyer, China expert and author of a famed report I'm-: suppressed by lln- State Department. However, because the Red Chinese know this, they probably will not attack Formosa, which would "involve them in operations that they an- wholly unable to cope with," said Wedemeyer. In a Faets Forum STATE OF THE NATION' interview, General Wedemeyer*s reply when asked to speculate a- to possible repereus- sions should a I ,S. destroyer In- sunk during one of the Red Chinese so- called "nuisance raids," was as follows: "I think that if thi- destroyer were carrying out the instructions from Washington to protect Formosa and if it Were sunk as tin- result of hostile action—action l)> tin- Red Conununi-t- that it might involve us in wider-scale operations against the Communists. I don't think that our country would for a minute permit such an event to mi in without taking immediate action." (reneral Wedemeyer*s statement that Red China would he reluctant to provoke all-out war with the Inited States prompted interviewers to query: "Is there danger of Russian intervention ?" "No," \\ ede- meyer replied. 'T don't think the Soviet I'nion want- to become actively engaged in large-scale operation- W itll US, either." MR. BURT: Mr. Garrity, as moderator, I would like to ask how either you or Professor Hodges can say that we can drop bombs on Red China and say we're not at war. Mr. Garrity: Well, at war you deny you dropped them. Xou do exactly whal lhe Russians have been successfully doing all these years. That's the only u;n ur can do il against Russia today, and anything is heller than plowing under American youth. Mm. Combs: \ democracy cannol afford to parade under a dishonest banner, and lhe moment ur do, we Stultify the basic premise of democracy. Prof. Hodges: \a I have very carefully said. I think we should lake a police action and I mean ju-t lhat—to counter aggression on the basis of the United Nation-. I think lhal we have lo recognize thai there are degrees of getting into war. Mr. COMBS: We will apply thai degree of force which is neceasan to win now. whatever lhat may involve starting! peripherally if you will, bul ultimately exerting that degree of force and milium power which is necessary to maintaining the defense.
