ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion on the United States foreign and military policy. The United States has been the source of the most revolutionary concepts of human and political freedom. According to the article author, in this century, the United States which first split the atom, would be the indomitable leader of the cause of freedom from war. The main lines of American military and foreign policy are still those of 1947-1952. Although U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower crusaded for a policy of liberation and denounced containment as immoral, in operation their policy was to construct a chain of military alliances around Communism and to attempt to restrain the spread of Soviet Union power wherever it threatened. The article author believes that the United States is ready for a new awakening and the achievement of greater goals. Within it are the moral and material elements of new purpose and new policy. It is the task of leadership to marshal people's will and point the way in the right direction.
