Quotations from Chairman Mao Tsetung.
Make trouble, fail, make trouble again, fail again. . . till their doom; that is the logic of the imperialists and all reactionaries the world over in dealing with the people’s cause, and they will never go against this logic. Working hand in glove, Soviet revisionism and U.S. imperialism have done so many foul and evil things that the revolutionary people the world over will not let them go unpunished. The people of all countries are rising. A new historical period of struggle against U.S. imperialism and Soviet revisionism has begun.
The torrential rivers flow one thousand li, Chairman Mao’s love for us overflows ten thousand rivers. Oh Chairman Mao, Chairman Mao! You are the red sun in the hearts of the border people. Here the border people in northeastern China earnestly study Chairman Mao’s works before they begin to work, placing Mao Tsetung Thought in command of all.
The red banner flies high and gleaming harrows shine in the sunlight, the frontier has taken on a new look. Busy with the sowing are the poor and lower middle peasant members of the people’s commune, who hove worked for generations on the Chinese territory of Wupalao Island, situated on the Chinese side of the central line of the main channel of the Heilung River.
The rivers flow endlessly. The day’s catch is piled high. For generations the Chinese fishermen have fished in the Wusuli River.
When the Soviet Union was still socialist, passengers on Chinese and Soviet steamboats greeted each other as they met on the Heilung River, expressing the fraternal friendship between the two peoples.
Look Khrushchov and Eisenhower, ring-leaders of Soviet revisionism and U.S. imperialism, join in a love feast.
Khrushchov, the despicable renegade to the Soviet people, is in the company of the U.S. imperialist chieftain Kennedy.
By order of his master Brezhnev, the Soviet revisionist ambassador Dobrynin fawns upon Nixon, the new boss of U.S. imperialism. This ugly performance is an excellent example of the way U.S. imperialism and Soviet revisionism, the two big bullies in the world, are intensifying their collaboration with each other in a criminal attempt to redivide the world.
Although the Soviet revisionist renegade clique has built many fortifications and set up row after row of barbed wire entanglements, it cannot possibly destroy the militant friendship that the Chinese and Soviet peoples have cemented in their protracted revolutionary struggles.
Two Soviet revisionist gunboats are obstructing the legitimate passage of a Chinese ship.
The Soviet revisionists wag their tails before U.S. imperialism but ride roughshod over the fishermen of socialist China. Ignoring the protests of the Chinese side, Soviet gunboats have the impudence to ride down Chinese fishing boats at full steam.
By their gangsterism the Soviet revisionist renegades have enraged Chinese fishermen along the Wusuli River. Filled with anger and hatred, our fishermen advance bravely to engage them in a tit-for-tat struggle.
The ‘Soviet revisionist aggressors are carrying off one of our fishing nets to disrupt our fishery.
Burning with anger our fishermen demand the return of the net the Soviet revisionist aggressors have seized.
Instead of returning the net, the Soviet revisionist aggressors cruelly beat up our fishermen.
On September 24, 1967, the Soviet revisionists openly kidnapped Chinese fishermen. But beating and kidnapping can shake neither the Iron will of the Chinese fishermen to fight to the end nor their red hearts which are always Ioyal to the great leader Chairman Mao. It only serves to fully expose the fact that the Soviet revisionists are downright social-imperialists.
Amidst angry shouts of “Down with US. imperialism!” “Down with Soviet revisionism!” the representative of the Soviet frontier troops dare not look up but takes to his heels abjectly.
