ABSTRACT
This article shares the author's thoughts about the foreign policy of the U.S. government. The author relates that since the Second World War, the foreign policy of the U.S. has become, by necessity, a positive and activist one. It has been one of attempting to draw together, through various groupings, the Western area which must be the center of a free and open world system, and of taking the leading part in providing it with military security, and with a developing economy in which trade could grow and industrial productivity could be developed.
