ABSTRACT
This article focuses on peace in Taiwan. U.S. Secretary John Foster Dulles has not been pursuing one objective in his Formosa policy but a number of conflicting objectives. He is seeking to intimidate Peking and yet to avoid war; to pull back the Nationalists and yet to preserve their mythical status; to gain the support of our allies and yet to retain the support of Senator William Knowland; to use the United Nations both as a weapon of political warfare and as an instrument of negotiated peace. The chances of, a cease-fire agreement is dim at best. For only rarely can such conflicting ambitions as make up the present struggle be reconciled in a permanent and contractual form.
