foreign mili tary bases is highly doubtful Spectacular advances have come about in the developmenl of longrange missiles Earth satellites have raised the pros pect of a day when distance from target

disenchantment came with bra zen seizure by Russia of j Czechoslovakia and the clos ing of the German air corridor in 1948 and the resultant Berlin airlift By this time we were painfully aware that Russian Communism was the same old poison Our foreign policy was built around the central principle of containing Communism a term attributed to George F Kennan of our State Department It was already being applied in Greece under the label Truman Doc trine when Kennan observed that our policy toward the USSR must be that of a longterm patient but firm and vigilant containment of Russian tend
