AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY IN THE LIGHT OF NATIONAL INTEREST AT THE MID-CENTURY

by GEORGE A. LUNDBERG

By following the policy we have adhered to since the days of Washington we have prospered beyond precedent; we have done more for the cause of liberty in the world than arms could effect; we have shown to other nations the way to greatness and happiness. . . .

But if we should involve ourselves in the web of European politics, in a war which could effect nothing, . . . where, then, would be the last hope of the friends of freedom throughout the world? Far better it is . . . that, adhering to our wise pacific system, and avoiding the distant wars of Europe, we should keep our own lamp burning brightly on this western shore, as a light to all nations, than to hazard its utter extinction amidst the ruins of fallen or falling republics in Europe.

-- HENRY CLAY, 1852

We went into the fight [the Korean war ] to save the Republic of Korea, a free country established by the United Nations. . . .

Meanwhile, we must continue to strengthen the forces of freedom throughout the world. . . .

That means military aid, especially to those places like Indo-China which might be hardest hit by some new Communist attack. . . .

In Europe we must go on helping our friends and allies to build up their military forces. . . .

-- HARRY S. TRUMAN, address to Congress, 1952
