The article presents information on the U.S. foreign policy in Korea. The U.S. administration has built all its plans on truce in Korea with diminished foreign aid, slashed defense funds and a balanced budget. If truce fails, it's hard to predict the national mood. Some will say abandon Korea, which means a Pacific debacle. Others will demand all out war with any weapon at any risk. For instance, it is known that the U.S. now has enough atomic cannon to use in Korea, it will be hard not to use them if truce stalls.
