These Nationalists dp not pre- ict another major attack against Quemoy at this time, although they do not rule but that possi- bility. They see two main reasons for the redeployment of the Red Chi- nese military forces to the south and central provinces. First, the center of Asian un- rest has moved from the Korea- Japan area to Southeast Asia. By moving their military power southward, the Reds are closer to troubled Laos and South Viet Nam, now torn by a Communist guerrilla campaign. Second, the movement of thou- sands of fresh ground troops into the southern provinces could put down internal revolt. The Nation- alists say that the Reds are hav- ing the most trouble from the ci- vilian population in the south. As Birthday Nears.
