The Truman Doctrine (1947) was designed to support anti-communistsand resist the spread of communism. Initially, it stated that theUnited States would support both Turkey and …Greece with economicand military aid, preventing them falling into the Soviet sphere. It offered support to all countries that declined communism,attempting to contain it, and ultimately end it. The TrumanDoctrine also included Marshall Aid, which was money that wasoffered to all European countries for rebuilding. TheSoviet-controlled countries of the Warsaw Pact had to decline this"capitalist" money. In an address to Congress, President Truman said, "I believe thatit must be the policy of the United States to support free peopleswho are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or byoutside pressure. The Truman Doctrine is the common name for the Cold War strategyof containment versus the Soviet Union and the expansion ofcommunism.

The Truman Doctrine was a policy set forth by U.S. President Harry S Truman on March 12, 1947 stating that the U.S. would support Greece and Turkey with economic and military …aid to prevent their falling into the Soviet sphere.Truman stated the Doctrine: it would be "the policy of the United States to support free peoples who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures." Truman reasoned, because these "totalitarian regimes" coerced "free peoples," they represented a threat to international peace and the national security of the United States. Truman made the plea amid the crisis of the Greek Civil War (1946-1949). He argued that if Greece and Turkey did not receive the aid that they urgently needed, they would inevitably fall to communism with grave consequences throughout the region. The policy won the support of Congress and involved sending $400 million in American money, but no military forces, to the region. The effect was to end the Communist threat, and in 1952 both countries joined NATO, a military alliance that guaranteed their protection. The Doctrine shifted American foreign policy toward the Soviet Union from détente (friendship) to, as George F. Kennan phrased it, a policy of containment of Soviet expansion. Historians often use it to mark the starting date of the Cold War.
