have conferences with them, must stay-
in the United Nations with them, so
that we'll know what they are up to—so
that we can discuss points of conflict as
they arise, iron out differences, and settle things peacefully."
There are only two ways to live peacefully with the Soviets. One way is to
let them have what they want. This was
the way of Roosevelt. Roosevelt told
William Bullitt that he thought he could
get along with the Communists if he
gave them everything they wanted and
asked nothing in return.
If we feel that we simply cannot live
without dealing and mingling with the
Soviets, we can negotiate a peaceful
settlement of the world's difficulties at
once and enter an almost endless age of
peaceful coexistence—and slavery. All
we have to do is give up, let the Soviets
take over, and establish the great Socialist one-world which they have been
openly planning since 1917."
After Stalin's death, Malenkov in a
speech made a few vague remarks about
peaceful coexistence of capitalism and
socialism; and all the soft heads of the
West began to wag: "Ahhh! Now we
can get along with them."
Such world-renowned statesmen as
Winston Churchill not only dismissed
thirty-seven years of Communist treachery but also failed to note the major
portions of Malenkov's speech.
\A hile talking about peaceful coexistence, Malenkov also says that communism will "rebuff any policy hostile to
the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.""
Before long we will see: The Soviets
will decide that the policies of India.
Indonesia, Burma. Japan, are hostile.
These nations (and after them, others)
will go the way of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania. Poland, Eastern Germany, Czechoslovakia, part of Austria, Hungary,
Rumania, Albania, Tibet, China, Indochina, North Korea—all of which are
now enjoying peaceful coexistence with
the Soviet Union.
ONE PROVEN WAY
There is one proven way for us to live
peacefully on the same planet with the
Soviets without being devoured by
them: exclude them from our society
and have nothing to do with them.
That's what we did from 1917 to 1933,
and it worked extremely well. We did
not have any wars with the Communists,
because without our help—without being able to meddle in our affairs and
disrupt and weaken our own policies—
the Communists didn't have enough
strength to make wars."
We cannot honorably negotiate all or
any outstanding differences between us
and the Soviets. Every time we enter a
conference with Communists we know
before we start that we are not going to
win anything. The only question is: How
much will we lose this time?

On the same day that Soviet jets shoot
down an American plane off the coast of
Japan, American Ambassador Charles
Bohlen attends a gay party in Moscow
and drinks vodka toasts to the success
of the Communist revolution and to the
bloody butchers who have enslaved over
a third of the world's people—and who
were responsible for 401.000 American
casualties in Korea."
Secretary of State Dulles excuses
Bohlen for wining and dining with the
gangsters who are killing our men and
plotting the destruction of our nation by
saying that Bohlen hadn't had time to
think it over or consult with Washington.
President Eisenhower dismisses the
whole affair by saying, in effect: Yes,
it'.- bad: but don't worry! We're going
to have peace with the Soviets, because
their behavior on this occasion has been
much more conciliatory than on previous
occasions when they shot down our
Day after da\ in the I nited Nations,
American representatives try to wheedle
the Soviets into getting on the American
gravy train to participate in the International Atom Pool, which is a scheme

tax money—materials whose scarcity or
abundance may ultimately mean life or
death for the United States."
