Abstract:

Communist expansionism, a major force of the 20th Century, constitutes a continuing challenge to the Free World and particularly the United States. Against this expansion the United States has sought to erect a containment barrier, but world conditions are such that Communists ability to generate chaos and possibly breach or leap the barrier must not be discounted. Once in power, Communists are not about to relinquish it, and they use their power to subvert their neighbors. To prevent further Communist expansion the United States must maintain the barrier and tolerate no foci of infection behind it. Specifically, the United States must do what is necessary to win in Vietnam and to eliminate the threat of Cuba in Latin America. The threat of communism will remain, but it will be contained, and it is hoped that conditions will have been created for its dissolution and for constructive action to solve the other world problems in the course of time.
