The Danger of Doing Too Much

Morgenthau, Hans J.
April 1956
New Republic;4/16/56, Vol. 134 Issue 16, p14
The article focuses on the U.S. military policy toward Asia. The immediate objective of the U.S. policy is the containment of Soviet Union and Chinese imperialism. Since the Soviet Union and China have used communism as the main vehicle for the expansion of their power, this objective is of necessity identical with the containment of communism. On the military level, the prospective enemy may be deprived of the incentive to attack the vital interests of the U.S. by way of general deterrence, or local balances may be created of military power where there is the danger of local expansion by military means.
