In oWj teen Americans? This is Mao Tse-tung's tinuing to repl way 0f prov;ng t0 ai] 0f Asia that America is, as he says, a paper tiger which can roar and make noise but which cannot even defend its own. We will never know how many thousands of American soldiers have been paraded in de- _J gradation as captive slaves in the towns ■jr Kffl and ""ages of China, their minds and I bodies and spirits utterly broken, dis- ^hk I graceful exhibits of what happens to ^P' I Americans who dare to defy the Com- I munists.13 shipping would be permitted to enter or leave China waters, and then take the wraps off Chiang Kai-shek and Syng- man Rhee, give them the freedom and material assistance for a final, all-out assault against the Chinese mainland, we could still destroy Communist power in Asia without getting ourselves involved in a land war there.14 Why don't we take such action? If you will read carefully the speech that Secretary of State John Foster Dulles made at Chicago on November 29, you will discover why America is no longer able to stand behind the soldiers whom she sends into battle. Mr. Dulles stressed the fact that the United States must act witliin the charter of the United Nations. This means that the United States, in joining the UN, surrendered its essential sovereignty — that is, surrendered its power to make decisions in its own interests.15 In effect, Mr. Dulles says that whatever we might want to do or feel advisable, we are controlled in what we can do by what the United Nations Charter will permit us to do. Mr. Dulles, in his Chicago speech, after ruling out any action which might rescue Americans imprisoned in China, said, "Our nation will react and react vigorously in the protection of our citizens." Now, just what kind of reaction is Mr. Dulles talking about? Later on in that same Chicago speech, he tells us: We must step up our economic aid to the people of Asia in order to show them how well-meaning we are and to strengthen them against communism.15 action or as rmmunists, wW the Pentagon ' dead. And thus il Anii'iic M And now that the enemy has insolently publicized a condition which our government has been trying to keep hidden — has thrown it right into the teeth of President Eisenhower and Mr. Dulles — what are President Eisenhower and Mr. Dulles doing about it? Talking rioing nothing else. What has happened to America — the land of the free and the home of the brave? EXPENDABLE PAWNS? When a nation — any nation — sends its soldiers into battle and then fails to back them up with all the power it possesses, it is doing what ruthless tyrants have always done — using its soldiers as expendable pawns in a game of international politics. As long as there is one abandoned American soldier in a Chinese Communist jail, there is a mark of dishonor on every living American.11 We are now at the crossroads: We will bluster with double talk and whine in the UN for help, or we will redeem our national honor. * * » * * That was one side of the question. Now let's look at the opposite side— the arguments of some who DO NOT approve of blockading Red China to force the release of American prisoners held by the Communists. # # ♦ # # THE reaction to Senator Knowland's saber-rattling proposal that we blockade Red China in retaliation for the sentencing of thirteen Americans ranged all the way from the restrained skepticism expressed by the conservative Dallas Morning News to the outraged indignation expressed by Max Lerner in the very liberal New York Post. Said the conservative Dallas Morning News in a lead editorial, Sunday, November 28: "Eisenhower is bitterly criticized in We could restore American honor in the world and save the Americans still alive whom Truman and Acheson sent into the indescribable horrors of Communist slavery.
