Reno Evening Gazette (Newspaper) - September 17, 1965, Reno, Nevada 12-RENO EVENING GAZETTE, September 17, 1965 News Analysis iNews Paper Tiger Growls; Red China Reacts to Save Face a.. TT-U.J t, wnet r-nnr-prnpii miles away from the Indian- By JAMES MARLOW AP Newt Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) The war between India and Pakistan with Red China dancing the edges and now but- ting in has become a kind of fantasy, but a f.omber pne. Warned to keep 1heir nose out by the United States, which they call a paper tiger, the Red Chinese could hardly hope 1o save face if they obeyed. Be- sides, they have a big stake in seeing India lose. Thus, by keeping troops along the northern edge of India, the Chinese have weakened the In- dians' ability to fight Pakistan. They have had to divert half their forces to watching the Chinese. IDEOLOGICAL RIVAL Since democratic India is the ideological rival of author- itarian China in Asia, so long as it survives and prospers, if it prospers, it provides an alterna- tive to communism. This is un- endurable for the Chinese. Therefore, the destruction of India benefits China which, un- like Russia, has plumped for Pakistan in this war. The So- viets, along with the United States and the United Nations, have wanted a cease-fire to end the fighting. Pakistan, once considered this country's most fervent ally in Asia, began to cool and turn to China when, after the latter's assault on India in 1962, this country began to arm the In- dians. ARMED PAKISTAN It had previously armed Pak- istan much better. But the pop- ulation of India outnumbers that of Pakistan by more than 4 to 1. So, if India and Pakistan were ever equally armed, Pakistan wouldn't have much chance. This is probably the basic rea- son why Pakistan moved into disputed Kashmir last month to hit before India got armed any better and began the fighting, a sort of now-or-never tactic. But neither India nor Pakis- tan is equipped for a really long war. Both sides know it. And last week Pakistan must have shocked its Chinese friends by suggesting the United States try to settle things. Pakistan's President Mo- hammed Ayub Khan said this country should use its "enor- mous influence" to bring a set- tlement because it "has a role to play in this part of the world and ought to play it more posi- tively." But any further intrusion of the United States in Asia is last thing the Chinese want and this suggestion by Pakistan must have been a blow to them. What they want is the United States out of Asia altogether. The White House said Presi- dent Johnson wants to do any- thing he can to achieve peace but that he believes the route is through the United Nations. The United Nations had al- ready sent its secretary-gener- al, U Thant, to both India and Pakistan in search of a solution and, so far as has been re- vealed, got very dismal results. Then Monday Secretary of State Dean Rusk, concerned about the itchy look of the Chinese on the Indian frontier, said "our own advice to Peking would be to stay out and let the (U.N.) Security Council settle it." PAPER TIGER With the world looking at tiiem after this rebuff from what they called the paper ti- ger, the Red Chinese Thursday reacted as if to show the United States it couldn't tell them what to do. They told India to pull its forces out of a border area claimed by Peking about miles away from the Indian- Pakistan fighting or fact "grave consequences." This was a grim reminder to the Indians that Red China had struck hard and suddenly in 1962 and rolled the Indians back at several points in the Hima- layas. This warning from Pricing could be interpreted as a fur- ther effort to help Pakistan by compelling India In divert more of its strength to a line between India and China. But coming so soon Rfler Rusk's warning, it looks more like face-saving.
