Example text

However, it is not Europe where war breaks out. On 25 June 1950 the forces of Stalinist North Korea attack South Korea. Three years later some 2 million will be dead as the first ideological war of an ideological age ends in a tense truce. Two months prior to the outbreak of the Korean War, in March 1950, US Policy Document NSC-68 calls upon the West to rearm under American leadership to contain the Soviets wherever their expansionism expresses itself. Known colloquially as Containment, NSC-68 commits the US and its allies to confront Soviet communism wherever it appears.

Convinced that they are no longer invulnerable to Soviet ballistic nuclear missile attack, the Americans respond with an all-American determination to counter the Soviet threat. In fact, Moscow will have to wait some years before it can match American nuclear prowess, but the so-called missile gap becomes the latest paranoia in America’s capital of power paranoia. For weary Western Europeans a new question arises. Just how certain is it that America’s nuclear arsenal will be used in their ‘defence’?

Indeed, the foundation of NATO is in many ways the zenith of British post-war policy as Britain briefly plays Greece to America’s Rome, for whilst American nuclear power is Europe’s deterrent guarantee, the Alliance is a British idea. Moreover, it is Ismay who succinctly captures NATO’s purpose when he states the reason for the Alliance; to keep the Russians out, the Germans down, and the Americans in. SUEZ AND THE END OF A BRITISH EUROPE Britain’s decline is precipitous as the grand European colonial age ends with a humiliating full stop.
