No nation in history has spent more of its material wealth and manpower in the interests of the community of free nations than the United States has in the past fifty years. From 1945 to 1958 we spent 64 billion dollars for foreign economic and military aid and 382.2 billion dollars for military preparedness at home. Fifty-three thousand four hundred Americans died in World War I. Two-hundred-ninety-one thousand five hundred died in World War II. Thirty-three thousand six hundred died in Korea. Two million six hundred thousand Americans are under arms today.
Why this huge expenditure of money and manpower?____________________
