Foreign Policy in the time of the American Empire

Jochen Bitter is right. Nobody who had the chance to listen to the brave words of John F. Kennedy which he proclaimed in his inaugural address will ever forget them. I watched him on T.V. as an exchange student in Minnesota.

But, Jochan Bittern is pretty wrong on everything else. What was the reality back then? The basic Western Cold War doctrine was “Containment of Communism”, borders were not moved, mutual interests were respected.
