Correct Answer - Option 4 : Containment of Communism

The correct answer is option 4 i.e. Containment of Communism.

  • Cold War(1947 – 1991), the open yet restricted rivalry that developed after World War II between the United States and the Soviet Union and their respective allies.
  • The Cold War was waged on political, economic, and propaganda fronts and had only limited recourse to weapons.
  • With the Truman Doctrine, President Harry S. Truman established that the United States would provide political, military and economic assistance to all democratic nations under threat from external or internal authoritarian forces.
  • The Truman Doctrine was a de facto declaration of the Cold War.
  • Truman’s address outlined the broad parameters of U.S. Cold War foreign policy:
    • The Soviet Union was the center of all communist activity and movements throughout the world.
    • Communism could attack through outside invasion or internal subversion and the United States needed to provide military and economic assistance to protect nations from communist aggression.
