August 1951
Time;8/13/1951, Vol. 58 Issue 7, p29
The article shows evidence of trouble between Soviet politician Joseph Stalin and Chairman Mao Tse-tung of China. A statement from General Ridgway in Tokyo, Japan indicated that Russia had inveigled the Chinese into the Korean war so as to reduce the strength of China. A report from columnists Joseph and Stewart Alsop, followers of the U.S. State Department's foreign policy line, described a serious trouble between Moscow, Russia and Peking, China. The Alsop thesis though is contradicted by facts, signs and portents about the balances of power.
