Cold War II

During Cold War I, the task was to contain two awesome forces. The lesser and more moderate force was “an implacable enemy whose avowed objective is world domination by whatever means and at whatever cost.†Hence “if the United States is to survive,†it will have to adopt a “repugnant philosophy†and reject “acceptable norms of human conduct†and the “long-standing American concepts of `fair play’†that had been exhibited with such searing clarity in the conquest of the national territory, the Philippines, Haiti and other beneficiaries of “the idealistic new world bent on ending inhumanity,†as the newspaper of record describes our noble mission. [2] The judgments about the nature of the super-Hitler and the necessary response are those of General Jimmy Doolittle, in a critical assessment of the CIA commissioned by President Eisenhower in 1954. They are quite consistent with those of the Truman administration liberals, the “wise men†who were “present at the creation,†notoriously in NSC 68 but in fact quite consistently.
