1966.10.24美国驻香港总领事馆评价国共海军冲突

19661015日,共军和国军在马祖海域附近发生冲突,国军两艘舰艇被击沉。以往中共对于此类击退“蒋匪军进犯”的消息总是迅即大肆宣传,但对这起事件却意外的保持了沉默。美国驻香港总领事馆猜测,也许中共认为文革导致现在局势不稳,如现在报道此事可能会引起民众联想国军打算趁虚而入。据称上个月广东公安在追查广为流传的“国军登陆广东”谣言的源头,可见中共当局目前比较在意公众反应。
   美国人注意到新华社这两天(1022日和23日)关于“台湾同胞”和“美国剥削利用台湾”的报道倒是和以往调子相同,大陆的舆论机构偶尔也会报道台湾消息,这说明中共对国民党政权的态度没有变。过去几年来,在1031日蒋介石生日前,台湾屡屡尝试袭扰大陆,或许北京就把10.15冲突视作台湾惯常的“献礼”行动。

SUBJECT :   GRC-CHICOM NAVAL CLASH
REF: STATE 70990 

1. AS NOTED REFTEL, CHICOM MEDIA HAVE SO FAR FAILED TO RECORD CLASH WITH GRC NAVAL CRAFT OFF MATSU OCTOBER 15. THIS FAILURE SOMEWHAT SURPRISING IN VIEW PAST CHICOM PRACTICE OF PUBLICIZING COUNTERMEASURES TO REPEL GRC "INCURSION ATTEMPTS". PEKINGS SILENCE EVEN MORE NOTABLE IN LIGHT INFORMATION PASSED CONGEN NAVAL LIAISON OFFICER BY NAVAL ATTACHE TAIPEI LAST FRIDAY THAT HE HAD BEEN TOLD TWO GRC BOATS HAD BEEN SUNK IN ENCOUNTER. PEKING WAS QUICK TO CLAIM MAJOR "VICTORY" IN ENCOUNTER UNDER SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCE IN LAST YEAR.

2. WE CAN ONLY SPECULATE THAT MAINLAND REGIME WISHES AVOID ANY MENTION IN PUBLIC MEDIA OF INCIDENTS WHICH MIGHT BE CONSTRUED BY POPULACE AS POSSIBLE PREL IDE TO GRC INVASION ATTEMPT AT TIME OF INTERNAL STRESS AND POSSIBLE WEAKNESS PRODUCED BY CULTURAL REVOLUTION. REGIME CONCERN OVER PUBLIC OPINION WAS REFLECTED IN GAS REPORT (FSCH-69 00) OF POLICE INTERROGATIONS IN CANTON IN SEPTEMBER DESIGNED TO TRACK DOWN RUMORS PREVALENT IN CANTON OF GRC LANDINGS IN KWANGTUNG PROVINCE. EXTENT TO WHICH CHICOM LEADERSHIP ITSELF FEELS INVASION THREAT HAS INCREASED (AS OPPOSED TO RUMORS AMONG POPULACE) IMPOSSIBLE TO ASSESS, BUT WE NOTE THAT NCNA ITEMS OCTOBER 22 AND 23 ON HARD LOT OF TAIWAN “COMPATRIOTS” AND U.S ECONOMIC EXPLOITATION OF TAIWAN DO NOT DIFFER FROM ROUTING, SPORADIC ATTENTION NORMALLY ACCORDED TAIWAN IN MAINLAND PRESS, ESPECIALLY IN PERIOD AROUND OCT 10. CONCEIVABLY , THESE ITEMS DESIGNED SIGNAL THAT CHICOM ATTITUDE REGARDING GRC REMAINS UNCHANGED. SEVERAL TIMES IN RECENT YEARS GRC HAS ATTEMPTED INCURSION IN OCTOBER IN WEEKS IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING CHIANG`S BIRTHDAY ON OCTOBER 31.PEKING PROBABLY AWARE OF POSSIBLE BIRTHDAY FRESENT" ASPECTS THESE AFFAIRS AND THUS MAY VIEW OCTOBER 15 INCIDENT IN THIS LIGHT.
