Why did the goals of united states foreign in Europe compare to the goals of soviet foreign policy after world war 2?
Prior to World War II, American foreign policy was isolationist. Wefelt that other nations problems, particularly their wars, weretheir own business and we avoided getting involved unless we feltdirectly threatened. As a result of WWII though we decided thatthreats to peace and freedom elsewhere in …the world did affect us,that if we ignored serious trouble in the world it would probablyeventually find us. Thus after the war we became internationalistusing our power and prestige to help and protect our friends andacting to prevent wars wherever possible or to minimize them whenthey did break out. Another issue that drove foreign policy post WWII was the spread ofcommunism from both the Soviets and Chinese. No longer could the USafford to be isolationist. The African continent saw decolonizationand by the 1960s the fight was under way for countries betweendemocratization and Marxism. Therefore the US supported autocraciesand not "freedom fighters" generally aligned with Marxist regimes. After the second world war, the US emerged as the a "super power"its economic infrastructure was untouched by the war and the US wasthe only nation with an atomic bomb. Based on these factors and theones cited earlier in this answer, US foreign policy was shapedupon the US's ability to have a huge influence on world affairs. (MORE)
\n. \n British overseas policy in the 1930s \n. \nDuring the Great Depression Britain 'sheltered' within the Empire and this policy of trying to strengthen the Empire (mainly economically) continued throughout the period. This preoccupation with the Empire encouraged a quasi-isolatist attitude… towards Europe - with unfortunate results. In particular, in 1933-39 Britain never managed to take the initiative in Europe, but simply reacted to Hitler and other dictators.\n. \nHaving said this, Britain did rearm on a significant scale in the 1930s.

The American policy shifted to the policy of 'Containment' and the 'Domino Theory'. America was scared of Communism as it was completely opposite to that of Capitalism. After WWII Soviet troops were already occupying many Eastern European countries whom they had liberated. Soon after the war, the So…viet Union forced Communism upon these countries. America believed that if one country fell to Communism, others would also soon fall according to the Domino Theory. Therefore they took upon the policy of Containment, which was to contain Communism and prevent its spread to more countries. (MORE)
Australia's foreign policy between 1901 (federation) and 1950 (the Korean war) was based upon the commonwealth. However after the formation of the Anglo-Japanese Alliance, Australia was urged by Britain to relax their foreign policy. Not quite right. The word 'Commonwealth' means the people. The pe…ople of Australia were drawn into WW1 by the British as we were still a dominion of the British Empire at that stage. To answer the question correctly one must recognize that Australia remained a Colony of the British Empire until 1911. His Majesty King George V proclaimed Australia a 'Dominion' of the British Empire in 1911, and we remained a Dominion of The British Empire until 1919. Australia achieved independent sovereign nationhood status following the end of WW1 and was welcomed into the family of nations as a foundation member state of the League of Nations at the time of the signing of 'The Treaty of Versailles' on the 28th June, 1919. This historical chapter in Australia's history took place in the 'Hall of Mirrors' at the Palace of Versailles in France. So Australia's foreign policy up until 1919 was that of the British Parliament as Australia was still a Dominion of the British Empire. Australia's foreign policy changed in early 1920 when the League of Nations Covenant & Charter became International Law. Australia spoke for itself as an independent sovereign nation on foreign policy issues from that date. (MORE)
Australia's foreign polciy changed throughout the course of world war 2 from following Britain to the USA. After the fall of Singapore, Australia realised that Britain could not defend them and developed a strategic relationship with the US for defence. Answer Australia's foreign policy changed a…s, after the invasion of Singapore, and the destrction of the british navel fleet there, realising that Britain was in no state to be able to assist them as they were so far removed from them (so far as distance), knowing this they ammended to try and form new links with America, who, having just having had there entire pacific fleet destoryed in pearl habour had plans for using Australia as a defencive to invade Asia and push back the progressing Japanese army. All in all the new bonds ammended in the renewed foreign policy benefited Australia and all others concerned. Moving away from the traditional links with Britain, however the close bond remained throughout rhe fifties and most of the sixtiees (whilst menzies was prime minister) removing there ambilical cord from Britain and attaching in to America some might say!!

Answer . world war 2 had a great effect on women The main policy was containment of the communist role in the world. Russia was seen as trying to spread communist doctrine, and this became the main concern for the US and set policy for the next 60 years.
Answer . As I'm not privy to White House documents, I'll have to go with what the government STATED was the primary goal...Containment of communism. The idea was that A) The U.S. would not invade communists countries, but they would do whatever it took to prevent communism to spread into other co…untries and B) Would use counter-intelligence to undermine the government of countries under the Soviet.

The U.S. policy for WWI was isolationism and for WWII it was alsoisolationism until Pearl Harbor was attacked.
The people generally wanted to stay out of it. Roosevelt wanted to enter it as soon as possible. its called isolation or nutrality which means you are separate and stay away from foreign affairs
Absolutely not. First of all the war has already broken out beforewe got directly involved and as most of you reading this canremember, the United States has always been indirectly involved inboth World Wars. Although we claimed we were isolationists in WWI,we sure made out like thieves taking money… from our allies inreturn for weapons. World War II broke out because of the war guilty clause caused bythe Treaty of Versailles. Here comes a dude, reminding the Italiansof the good ol' days when they were "Romans" the largest empire theworld has ever seen! Then we have another dude reminding theGermans of what it means to be great again when they were told whatpieces of you know what they were for causing all the death anddamage in WWI. Nationalism in countries that were in shamblescaused the outbreak of WWII. (MORE)
How did World War 2 and the Cold War with the Soviet Union change the direction of US foreign policy?
The emergence of the Soviet Union put an end to the US pre-war tendency toward isolationism. Foreign policy turned toward preventing the expansion of communism, which would bolster the political and military strength of the USSR (which already threatened the security of Europe). Acceptance of non-de…mocratic regimes (e.g. Cuba under Batista, South Vietnam) was found preferable to allowing socialist governments to take root. (MORE)
They adopted a policy of INTERVENTION, in Europe in contrast to their policy of isolation in the inter-war period. They intervened to stop the spread of Communism more specifically called CONTAINMENT. They tried to contain Communism in Russia, it slightly failed as it did spread to much of Eastern E…urope however it did succeed on Western Europe and Greece. They did this by strengthening European economies with massive loans among other things. (MORE)
The basic goal of American foreign policy is and always has been to safeguard the nation's security.
Answer . 'Alternative histories' are fascinating but rather futile. It could be argued that had the victors of WW1 stopped Hitler's repossession of the Rhineland, then WW2 might have been prevented.
Well I remember that it was to push a conflict in between nations to its highest point so the US could have maximum power over it. By conflict I mean like just disputes not actual war or anything like that. This was a bad policy because this was the age of nuclear weapons. A nation could get really …pissed off and blow the whole world up. (MORE)

The US foreign policy is aimed at promoting cordial relations withother countries. It is also meant to ensure that security ismaintained both inside and outside the US.
1) National Security : protection of of anation's borders and territories against invasion or control byforeign powers. Also helps determine how the US deals with othernations. 2) Free and Open Trade :Maintaining tradewith other nations and preserving access to necessary naturalresources have b…een basic goals of US foreign policy. This is anabsolute necessity for the US. 3) World Peace : American leaders work forworld peace because they believe it helps the nation avoid outsideconflicts and aids national security. The US tries to help othernations settle disputes and has also supplied economic aid toat-risk countries, in part to prevent uprising and revolutions. 4) Democratic Governments : The US aidsdemocratic nations and helps others create democratic politicalsystems. With US help, many formerly Communist nations in Europebegan to form democratic political systems in the 1990's. 5) Concern for Humanity : Victims ofnatural disasters or starvation have looked to the US for help. Insuch times of crisis, the US has responded by providing food,medial supplies, and technology assistance for humanitarianreasons. At the same time, this aid serves the strategic interestsof the US by maintaining political stability in the world. * The question regarding the goals of a foreign policy maybe different based on the objectives of any particular government.The above mentioned foreign policy goal "national security" in thevast majority of the world's nations is not a responsibility offoreign policy, which most often delegated to a department of stateor perhaps to a department of foreign affairs. National security is usually the main objective of a nation'sdepartment of defense. It is usually true that a nation's foreign policy is coordinatedwith its defense. However, it only helps the department of defense.In fact the policies of defense are very often related to adepartment of state's policies. There is no question, however, thata department of defense's main job is to defend a nation. * Free & open trade policies are often the best policyfor any nation, however, it needs to be pointed out that Japan'seconomy works very fine by not having one. Trade policies ingeneral are based upon the needs and requirements of eachparticular nation. * World peace is usually the best policy of any country andthe primary overseer would be a department of state or foreignaffairs. History has recorded, however, that policies of aggressionhave been used in order to successfully obtain any given nation'sgoals. For a few hundred years, the foreign policy of Great Britainwas imperialism. It served Great Britain well. The expansion of theUS westward involved among many things, a successful Mexican War,which gave the US California and much of the US's Southwest. Pleasenote, the writer is not speaking about morality. What is was iswhat is was. * Democratic Governments are not the only kinds any nationmay make an alliance with, or furnish foreign aid to. Even the US,aids non-democratic governments abroad to further its foreign,defense and domestic economy goals. This is true for mostgovernments. For example, the aid given to various governments inEgypt, often stipulated and stipulates at times, that the "aid" orat least some of it would be used to buy F-16 fighter jets made byLockheed-Martin. * Concerns for humanity are goals for any nation to pursue,however, once again it depends on which nation we are speakingabout. The nation of Liberia, as example has the foreign policygoals of receiving aid to help its people. The first answer based on USA foreign policy is fine. No answer canbe perfect. The areas of debate revolve upon many factors, however,defense is a Department of Defensive priority. (MORE)
American foreign policy during the Cold War had two primaryobjectives. The first was to deter explicit Communist aggression(primarily from the Soviet Union) towards the United States and itsallies through the use of nuclear arms and other conventionalweapons. The second was to counter Communist expa…nsion into otherworld-nations through indirect means, although direct means (as inKorean and Vietnam) were sometimes utilized, as well. (MORE)

There was the Space Race and the Cold War, all of which the US won. The Soviet Union did accomplish many firsts in space such as the first ever launching of a satellite, but as the race neared it's end, US technicians and scientists were working feverishly on a spacecraft that would be successful in… taking the first ever humans to the moon. Basing the whole Space Race on that, you could say that the US has won the Space Race. Onto the Cold War, the Soviet Union spent too much money on weapons technology, producing the MiGs you see in the sky today but doing so made the economy an unbalanced infrastructure and the whole Soviet Union just collapsed, due to lack of economical stability. Funny, the Soviet Union needed to spend most of its money to KEEP UP with the US while the US still retained a well-balanced economy and succeeded in bringing about the best weapons, aircraft, and ships today!

The main goal of the US giving foreign aid after world war two 2 was that: the United States hoped that after a brief relief program, the international balance would gradually be restored, and long-term reconstruction projects would be financed by loans from the International Bank for Reconstruction… and Development (IRBD; also known as the World Bank) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Therefore U.S. foreign aid was chiefly in the form of emergency grants without any kind of central organization. Initially, the United States provided a large proportion of the funds of the international cost-sharing organization, the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA), established in 1943 by the Allied governments to provide a broad range of services to the war-devastated Allies.

What was the offiical united state foreign policy position when war initially broke out in Europe in 1914?
The policy of the United States was of neutrality . America was to have no favoritism whatsoever. The Central Powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottomans) and the Triple Entente (Russia, France, and Great Britain) were to have equal standing with the United States. This was a very different …approach compared to that of Latin America (where the US intervened in countries over debt problems and such). The US profited by selling the Entente supplies for the war. This was caused by the US's ties with Great Britain, the US distant relationship with the Central Powers, and geography. Remember that the official policy was one of neutrality. However, many supported the Triple Entente due to the British controlling the flow of information. They gave the US reporters propaganda that showed German cruelty and such. (MORE)

What we the American people have been conditioned to believe are the "main goals" of our aggressive foreign policy, are in fact being diminished here and abroad as a direct RESULT of our foreign policy (freedom, democracy, human rights protection). Since WWII, our foreign policy has been about "conv…erting raw material into war material" supporting the "war effort", as we've built up a huge extremist regime and war economy rather than a peaceful economy, an over $900 billion empire at expense of our nations peace, freedom, economy and well being as a whole. Today, USA ranks #88 in Global peace due to its spending in that direction and perpetual war cycle. we are self destructing, while cutting budgets across our school districts and other more beneficial areas to REALLY propel our nation further. Our media is owned by war profiteers, so it is purposely twisted to make us believe in all those "threats" out there, false flag panic attacks. In reality the main goals of US foreign policy have been built around not meeting our energy "demands" to fuel our too fast growth of technology much in wrong direction, so we attack oil rich land, also money that goes into military contracts, arms. We need to turn our investments to clean energy and stop trying to be the world dominating empire, think critically and ahead of how to get OUT of this self-destructive war mode. Our era of hegemony is over if we know what is best for us. It is turning USA into a military dictatorship and further away from any civilian led democracy by the day.
