Mao’s May 20 Statement
After a military coup in Cambodia, which overthrew Prince Norodom Sihanouk, and brought to power a staunchly pro-American regime, Mao Zedong urged action by the people of the world against the United States in his solemn statement on May 20, 1970: People of the World, Unite and Defeat the U.S. Aggressors and All Their Running Dogs!
It is a reaffirmation of the invincibility of the strategy of People’s War and Mao adhered to the theory of two points in analyzing the world situation. Mao pointed out: "The danger of a new world war still exists, and the people of all countries must get prepared. But countries want independence, nations want liberation and the people want revolution; this has become an irresistible trend of history which shows the main trend of development in the world situation today."
Though Mao always sharply criticized the Soviet Union on practice of "internationalism" (export and import of revolution), he attempted to thwart an increased sphere of American influence and a possible Soviet invasion, and gain more power to crush any threats to China’s position by exporting Mao-style revolution to the neighboring countries and the rest of the world, like areas in South America.
Mao believed that "a single spark can start a prairie fire" and it was Mao’s greatest pleasure to see a chaotic world!
If Mao’s teachings of ideological purity and perpetual revolution were to prevail as his running dogs were in the driver’s seat, the cold war with America would worsen.
Fortunately, after Mao’s death, Mr. Deng Xiaoping made an explicit, final break with China’s Maoist past. By boldly repudiating Maoism and masterminding epoch-making economic reforms in China, Deng improved the lives of far more people than any other leader. All the time he was transforming China, Deng practiced a no-frills pragmatism. The world, and particularly the neighbors in Asia, felt much more comfortable with a pragmatic, economics-oriented China than one motivated by radical ideology and the export of revolution. During Deng’s rule, China established diplomatic relations with the United States and substantially improved its ties with its neighbors, especially in Southeast Asia.
