What follows is attempt to reconstruct the motives Thc frost to hit and intentions which led up to the, county in general, do- attack Korea, and the reactions! ing of the men in the Kremlin since iancis. the atrgression started. The Kremlin decided many months ago to concentrate on the rapid conquest of Asia, in obedience to Lenin's dictum: "Let us look toward the East; the Kast will help us triumph in the West." Here the evi- dence, which rests on remark- ably complete intelligence re- ports of a meeting of top As- iatic Communist leaders in Pe- king last December, is abso- lutely solid. At this meeting, which was rath- er fiimsily disguised as a confer- ence of the World Federation of Tro.de the strategy for Asia was laid down. Six nations South Korea, Lido-China, Siam. Malaya, Indonesia and the Philippines were declared ripe for "liberation." The means of conquest were to be a naked struggle for Communist military domination in each coun- try. China, North Korea ar.d Mon- golia were to provide secure bases for this struggle. Liu Shao-chi, considered a prob- anle successor to Chinese Commu- nist leader Mao Tse-tung, made no bones about the military nature of this strategy: "Armed straggle can, and must, be the main fcrm of the peoples' liberation move- ment.
