Eisenhower Doctrine to the Middle East in 1957

Posted in 1950's, Cold War, Speeches on April 4, 2018 by mrkufs

The term Eisenhower Doctrine refers to a speech by President Dwight David Eisenhower on 5 January 1957, within a “Special Message to the Congress on the Situation in the Middle East”. Under the Eisenhower Doctrine, a country could request American economic assistance and/or aid from U.S. military forces if it was being threatened by armed aggression from another state.[1] Eisenhower singled out the Soviet threat in his doctrine by authorizing the commitment of U.S. forces “to secure and protect the territorial integrity and political independence of such nations, requesting such aid against overt armed aggression from any nation controlled by international communism.”
