Was it really about islands named Quemoy and Matsu or the missile gap?
Now I assure you that no American boy will be asked by me to fight just for Quemoy.
Also, Chinese Communists have been using their naval craft to try to break up the supplying of Quemoy with its 125,000 people.
In the fall of 1954 they attacked Quemoy and Matsu, the same two islands they are attacking now.
If the Chinese Communists have decided to risk a war, it is not because Quemoy itself is so valuable to them.
Some misguided persons have said that Quemoy is nothing to become excited about.
This bombardment of Quemoy has been going on almost continuously ever since.
