13 October 1967. Thought for the Week: "I gained the unenviable distinction of being the first United States Army Commander in history to sign an armistice without a victory."

N.Z. PRIME MINISTER'S DEFEATIST VIEWPOINT
"A total military victory in the Vietnam War was impossible, the New Zealand Prime Minister, Mr. Holyoake, said last night. 'Experts agree it cannot be determined militarily; it must finally be settled around the conference table', he said. The tide of battle had turned in favour of the Allies and the North Vietnamese would eventually be forced to negotiate for peace.... 'Nobody can prophesy the progress of the war or how long it will last', he said. 'But every 24 hours brings us a bit closer although there has been no indication from the Viet Cong that they will come to the conference table. 'Our whole effort is aimed at ending the war - around the conference table." - The Australian, October 3.
It was not surprising that The Australian published the above report under the heading, "Impossible to win in Viet, says Holyoake." That headline alone was a vital contribution to the psychological war being conducted by the international Communist conspirators; it conveyed the very message they have been constantly proclaiming, that the Americans and their allies cannot win in Vietnam!
The New Zealand Prime Minister, who made his statement upon his arrival in Australia on October 3, was, of course, merely spelling out much more clearly what others have been saying. It provides further evidence of the truth that the Americans and their allies are not seeking to defeat North Vietnam, but are primarily engaged in a defensive war with the ultimate objectives of some type of conference. Unless this policy is challenged, there is no doubt that the Communists are going to continue to win the psychological war.
Mr. Holyoake refers to "experts" who claim that
the war cannot be won militarily. As Mr. Holyoake did not name the "experts"
who claim this, we can only guess at their identity. But some real experts
were interviewed by the American Senate Preparedness Sub Committee members
of which also thoroughly cross-examined Defence Secretary Robert McNamara
on his strange conduct of the war in Vietnam, and the result was that
in their recent first report the Committee unanimously agreed that military
victory could be achieved if military experts were permitted to do what
they felt was necessary.
The interim report was published because "of the fact that the war in Southeast Asia is the most crucial and critical problem confronting the American people today and the Sub Committee believes they should have information with respect to this war to the greatest extent consistent with the requirements of national security."
In a searing criticism of the American air attacks,
the Report of the Sub Committee disclosed that early in 1965 "the Joint
Chiefs of Staff recommended a list of 94 fixed targets.... which they
considered militarily significant. These were not approved.... Only
22 of the 242 targets on the JCS were struck in 1966 and less than 1
per cent of the sorties flown were directed against fixed targets on
the JCS list."
The Report of the Preparedness Sub Committee
says that the enemy was given time to accomplish "a tremendous and very
formidable build-up of his air defence..."
Mr. Robert McNamara admitted that an enormous flood of Soviet military equipment was reaching North Vietnam through the North Vietnamese Port of Haiphong but discounted the value of closing the port. The Report of the Sub Committee states "All military witnesses stated that the closure, neutralisation, or isolation of the Port of Haiphong was the single most important thing which could be done in North Vietnam from a military standpoint."
In its October 19, 1962 Report the American Senate Preparedness Sub Committee concluded with the following grimly prophetic comment: "If war should come it can be conducted successfully only by professionals in that art and if strategy or tactics come under the influence of unskilled amateurs, sacrifice in blood is inevitable and victory is in doubt."
The American Senate Preparedness Sub Committee
leaves no doubt that it believes that Defence Secretary McNamara has
lied to the American people and misled their elected representatives.
It is certain that Australian and New Zealand politicians have also
been misled. Australian and New Zealand electors should request that
their representatives immediately obtain copies of the Report by the
American Senate Preparedness Sub Committee, study it themselves and
make it available to the Australian people.
The bombing is not preventing a sufficient flow
of military and economic aid from North Vietnam to the Viet Cong. What
little secondary industry North Vietnam does possess makes little significant
contribution to the military equipment being used by the Viet Cong.
The sophisticated anti-aircraft equipment which is taking such a deadly
toll of American planes, the long-range artillery now being increasingly
used, is not manufactured in North Vietnam's backyard industries, but
in the Soviet Union and its satellites, and to a lesser extent in Red
In an interview with David Schoenbrun, the foreign
correspondent whose articles on North Vietnam have been syndicated throughout
the world, the Communist Prime Minister of North Vietnam, Pham Van Dong,
has left no doubt about the confident and uncompromising attitude of
the Communists: "The Prime Minister insisted that the way to peace must
follow two paths, one that can be opened up to Hanoi by unconditional
cessation of bombing, the other leading to peace in the South by recognition
of and direct talks with the National Liberation Front. 'If America
wants peace in the South it must talk with the front. Neither we nor
our brothers of the front will deal with your puppets Thieu and Ky."
The Australian, October 3.
CHRISTIAN COMPASSION EXPLOITED FOR POLITICAL END
"We find ourselves pulled this way and that, and in the matter of the war in Vietnam, ardently support the Government or ardently oppose it; and if the latter, divide our nation even more than it is already divided and indirectly prolong instead of shortening the war, as we encourage the other side by our divisions. It might be that by being imbued with a deep sense of compassion, as all Christians must be, we are persuaded to become tools to some who use Christian compassion as a political end." -Archbishop Strong of Brisbane in the Courier-Mail. October 2.
Distressing evidence of Archbishop Strong's
viewpoint appeared at the Melbourne Anglican Synod on October 3, when
a resolution was carried calling for an end to all foreign intervention
in Vietnam. A study of press reports leaves no doubt those those responsible
for the motion were referring to the Americans, Australians and New
Zealanders when they mentioned "foreign intervention."
"Let our friends do the work", taught the famous Communist instructor on political warfare, Georgi Dimitrov.
Those who voted for the Melbourne Anglican Synod motion on Vietnam demonstrated that they are the "tools'" Archbishop Strong warned about. This motion will provide the Communists with further evidence of success in their campaign to divide and confuse the peoples of America, Australia, and New Zealand.
ANOTHER MAJOR SOVIET VICTORY IN MIDDLE EAST
"King Hussein of Jordan carried his plea for money and sympathy to the Kremlin yesterday in a round of talks with President Podgorny. The King, once branded as a Western puppet by Moscow, was given a royal welcome by Soviet leaders when he arrived from Amman. President Podgorny, the Foreign Minister, Mr. Gromyko and Mr. D. Polyansky, a politburo member, were at the airport with a band, a guard of honor and several hundred cheering Russian workers. A 21-gun salute also greeted the King." The Australian, October 4.
King Hussein's visit to Moscow in search of Soviet support is the greatest Soviet diplomatic victory in the Middle East since they persuaded the Shah of Iran early this year to enter in to a major economic and arms deal. Like the Shah, King Hussein has always tried to be pro-Western and is certainly an anti-Communist. But the moderate Arab leaders, who until recently have resisted Communist tools like Nasser of Egypt, find themselves in the desperate position where the West has forced them to turn to the Communists in an endeavour to get urgent economic and military assistance.
It is conveniently over-looked by those who
see all virtue as residing in Israel, that the shocking Arab-refugee
problem, of which Jordan is bearing the main brunt, did not start with
the recent Arab-Israeli conflict, but when Israel was being established
by force of arms, most supplied by the Communists, and sheer terrorism
twenty years ago.
Israel was established by naked Political Zionist aggression, backed by the Communists, at the expense of the Arabs and their territory. The moderate Arab leaders have been haunted by the spectacle of Israel refusing even to accept the borders laid down by the UN, and the fear that Israel will constantly seek to enlarge its territory to achieve its official objective of providing that national home which political Zionist leaders demand. At no time has the West taken a firm policy on the question of boundaries, giving Jordan, for example, the firm assurances she has sought.
Those who accept the widely promoted view that
the Soviet is backing the Arabs to destroy Israel are the victims of
a major propaganda hoax. Official statements by Communist leaders make
it quite clear that they do not seek the destruction of Israel. The
Communist Tribune, of August 16, for example, carries a report
from Rupert Lockwood in Moscow headed "No question of wiping out Israeli
25,000 DOLLAR EXPANSION FUNDThe initial response to the special expansion fund is most encouraging. As we go to press thirty-seven supporters have pledged a total of $4382 dollars. One of the major purposes of this fund is to bring Mr. Jeremy Lee into the field full time, to expand other activities, and to develop into new fields. This fund must close by the end of October. Progress reports will appear in coming issues of On Target. Send your donation or pledge TODAY.
