"We're Certainly Not Licked ..."

October 1954
New Republic;10/11/54, Vol. 131 Issue 15, p14
This article focuses on international relations of the United States. United States were extended overseas. At the same time our military effort was reduced. The Air Force was cut by 15 percent in 1953. Sound policy in an era of nuclear weapons dictated a course of minimizing and localizing encounters as they broke out along the borders of the Communist world. Other free nations chose to reduce rearmament schedules in 1954. Therefore they lowered their diplomatic demands on the Communist enemy. The United States alone increased its demands while it reduced its means for their enforcement.
