ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the United States' foreign relations with Soviet Union. On China, the Korean Armistice, East-West trade, tariffs and Middle East defense, the division between the U.S. president Dwight David Eisenhower and British prime minister Sir Winston Churchill ranges from limited disagreement to open conflict. Only on Germany have the U.S. and British governments stood together, and now, on German policy, Churchill foreshadows a shift in the British view. Now the conflict is spread in the open, for the Russians to exploit. The Soviet leaders need only grasp Churchill's outstretched hand to make it plain to the world that while Russia will talk, and France will talk, the U.S. will not talk because it fears peace. So it stands wide open for the Soviet punch.
