Which of the following policies was enforced by creating a series of alliances to limit the spread of communism?
A. Operation "Rolling Thunder"
B. the "Containment Policy"
C. the "Patriot Act"
D. the "Police Action Policy"
Containment was a United States policy using military, economic, and diplomatic strategies to stall the spread of communism, enhance America?s security and influence abroad, and prevent a "domino effect". [ [ A component of the Cold War, this policy was a response to a series of moves by the Soviet Union to expand communist influence in Eastern Europe, China, Korea, and Vietnam. It represented a middle-ground position between appeasement and rollback. The basis of the doctrine was articulated in a 1946 cable by U.S. diplomat George F. Kennan. As a description of U.S. foreign policy, the word originated in a report Kennan submitted to Defense Secretary James Forrestal in January 1947, a report that was later published as a magazine article. It is a translation of the French cordon sanitaire, used to describe Western policy toward the Soviet Union in the 1920s.
The word containment is associated most strongly with the policies of U.S. President Harry Truman (1945-53), including the establishment of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or more formally known as NATO, a mutual defense pact. Although President Dwight Eisenhower (1953-61) toyed with the rival doctrine of rollback, supporters of this doctrine felt betrayed when he did not intervene in the Hungarian Uprising of 1956. Containment had particular influence on the foreign policies of President Lyndon Johnson (1963-69), especially those concerning Vietnam. President Richard Nixon (1969-74) promoted a variation of containment he called d?tente, or relaxation of tension. In 1973-74, the U.S. Congress, questioning both the need for and morality of containment in Vietnam, cut off aid to the South Vietnamese government. President Jimmy Carter (1976-81) emphasized human rights rather than anti-communism, while President Ronald Reagan (1981-89) promoted rollback with respect to both Nicaragua and Afghanistan. Despite these departures, central aspects of containment, including NATO and nuclear deterrence, remained in effect even after the end of the Cold War in 1989 and the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991. ] ] Auto answered|Score 1|natfly2000|Points 15840|
