The Marshall Plan: George Marshall Calls For Aid to Europe After WWII
 
02:24
A public domain video. The Marshall Plan (officially the European Recovery Program, ERP) was an American initiative to aid Western Europe, in which the United States gave over $12 billion (approximately $120 billion in current dollar value as of June 2016) in economic support to help rebuild Western European economies after the end of World War II. The plan was in operation for four years beginning April 8, 1948. The goals of the United States were to rebuild war-devastated regions, remove trade barriers, modernize industry, make Europe prosperous once more, and prevent the spread of communism. The Marshall Plan required a lessening of interstate barriers, a dropping of many regulations, and encouraged an increase in productivity, labour union membership, as well as the adoption of modern business procedures. The Marshall Plan aid was divided amongst the participant states roughly on a per capita basis. A larger amount was given to the major industrial powers, as the prevailing opinion was that their resuscitation was essential for general European revival. Somewhat more aid per capita was also directed towards the Allied nations, with less for those that had been part of the Axis or remained neutral. The largest recipient of Marshall Plan money was the United Kingdom (receiving about 26% of the total), followed by France (18%) and West Germany (11%). Some 18 European countries received Plan benefits. Although offered participation, the Soviet Union refused Plan benefits, and also blocked benefits to Eastern Bloc countries, such as East Germany and Poland. The United States provided similar aid programs in Asia, but they were not called "Marshall Plan". The initiative is named after Secretary of State George Marshall, who also served as the United States Army Chief of staff during WWII. The plan had bipartisan support in Washington, where the Republicans controlled Congress and the Democrats controlled the White House with Harry S. Truman as president. The Plan was largely the creation of State Department officials, especially William L. Clayton and George F. Kennan, with help from the Brookings Institution, as requested by Senator Arthur H. Vandenberg, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Marshall spoke of an urgent need to help the European recovery in his address at Harvard University in June 1947. The purpose of the Marshall Plan was to aid in the economic recovery of nations after WWII as well as to antagonize the Soviet Union. In order to combat the effects of the Marshall Plan, the USSR developed its own economic plan, known as the Molotov Plan. It was not as effective as the Marshall Plan, and in some ways contradictory to eastern block countries that served alongside the axis powers in WWII. The phrase "equivalent of the Marshall Plan" is often used to describe a proposed large-scale economic rescue program. source: wikipedia.org Subscribe - never miss a video! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_S8ZlDCRkMMgc7ciw8X-hg The 20th Century Time Machine takes you back in time to the most important historical events of the past century.

The Marshall Plan Speech (video presentation by the Marshall Foundation)
 
11:39
A video presentation by the George C. Marshall Foundation: When Secretary of State Marshall accepted an invitation from Harvard to receive an honorary degree during the first week in June 1947, the State Department informed the president of the Alumni Association that Marshall would make a speech for the afternoon meeting of the Harvard Alumni Association but that Marshall did not want it to be a major speech of the occasion. There were no discussions with representatives of other governments; there were no notifications of the American press that an important speech was to be delivered, and even Harvard President James B. Conant did not expect a major address from General Marshall. The speech was drafted by Chip Bohlen, a Russia specialist and interpreter who used memoranda from the Director of the Policy Planning Staff George F. Kennan and from Under Secretary of State for Economic Affairs William Clayton. Bohlen especially benefited from Clayton's graphic oral descriptions of Europe's situation. In the memorandum he wrote, "Millions of people in the cities are slowly starving," if the standard of living continued to deteriorate, "there will be revolution." On the day of the speech the capacity crowd of 15,000 in Harvard Yard did not expect to see history made but simply to see one of the most admired public servants in America. However when Secretary Marshall began to read his speech there was a recognition that the carefully worded remarks on the political and economic crisis in Europe marked an important event. In that speech, Marshall outlined the need for an economic aid plan to help the devastated nations of Europe and their citizens to recover from the ravages of World War II. When Marshall said, "It is logical that the United States should do whatever it is able to do to assist in the return of normal economic health in the world, without which there can be no political stability and no assured peace," the Secretary of State committed the United States to consider a European recovery plan that would be developed by the Europeans and presented to the United States. Thus was launched The Marshall Plan for which George C. Marshall would be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. To learn more about Marshall's speech click here.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki, leveled by atomic explosions, are also shown and the situation in Japan described. The tragic costs of World War II are elucidated, with a focus on the reconstruction of cities, people, hearts and minds, and an assessment of the bitter cost of conflict.

Starting about the 17 minute mark, the rise of the Soviet block is shown, with the Russians annexing formerly free nations and stifling opposition, including in Manchuria, Lithuania, Poland, East Germany, etc. The descent of the Iron Curtain in Europe is mentioned at 20 minutes, as Winston Churchill speaks on the subject. Sec. of State George C. Marshall is shown proposing the Marshall Plan at the 20:30 mark. At the 23:30 mark, the Berlin Crisis of 1948 and the Berlin Airlift are shown. The Marshall Plan (officially the European Recovery Program, ERP) was an American initiative to aid Europe, in which the United States gave $13 billion (approximately $120 billion in current dollar value) in economic support to help rebuild European economies after the end of World War II. The plan was in operation for four years beginning in April 1948. The goals of the United States were to rebuild war-devastated regions, remove trade barriers, modernize industry, make Europe prosperous again, and prevent the spread of communism.

American History - Part 193 - Truman - Marshall Plan - America saves European Economy
 
13:48
Speech by George Marshall, Winston Churchill Welcome to THE MAKING OF A NATION -- American history in VOA Special English. I'm Steve Ember. Britain was once the most powerful nation in the world. It ruled a wide-reaching empire. This week in our series, we look at how British power gave way to American influence after WWII. One can almost name the day when this happened. It was February 21, 1947. British diplomats in Washington called the State Department. They had 2 messages from their government. The 1st was about Greece. The situation there was critical. Greece had been occupied by Germany during the war. Now it was split by a bitter civil war. On one side of the fighting was the Greek royal family supported by Britain. On the other side were communist-led rebels supported by Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union. British forces had helped keep Greece from becoming communist at the end of WWII. A few years later, Britain could no longer help. It needed all its strength to rebuild after the war. So, on that February day in 1947, Britain told the United States it would soon end all support for Greece. Britain's 2nd message that day was about Turkey. Turkey was stronger than Greece. But the concern was that it, too, could become communist unless it received outside help. The Soviet Union wanted to block western political and economic influence in central and eastern Europe. It wanted to extend its own influence instead. So, after the war, it forced a number of countries to establish communist governments. "From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic an iron curtain has descended across the Continent." The British warnings about the communist threat in Greece and Turkey led President Truman to speak to Congress. He said, "I believe that it must be the policy of the United States to support free peoples who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures." Truman called on Congress to give him !$400,000,000 in aid for Greece and Turkey. After a brief but intense national debate, Congress agreed. Truman then launched an effort to save the Greek economy and reorganize the Greek army. Soon after that, Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union ended their aid to Greek rebels. The civil war in Greece ended. American help for Greece and Turkey was the 1st step in what became known as the "Truman Doctrine." The goal of this policy was to stop Soviet aggression anywhere in the world. Truman was willing to use military force to stop the spread of communism. But he also believed it was equally important to build up western European nations so they would be strong enough to defend themselves. After the war, President Truman made George Marshall his secretary of state. Marshall had led American troops as a general in WWII. Now, as the nation's top diplomat, he proposed the idea for rebuilding Europe. This idea became known as the "Marshall Plan." President Truman explained why there had to be a Marshall Plan. People were starving, he said. There had been food riots in France and Italy. There was not enough fuel. People were cold and sick. Tuberculosis was breaking out. As Truman said later, "Something had to be done." Secretary of State Marshall described the plan during a congressional hearing in Washington. "Why must the United States carry so great a load in helping Europe? The answer is simple. The United States is the only country in the world today which has the economic power and productivity to furnish the needed assistance. The !$6,800,000,000 proposed for the 1st 15 months is less than a single month's charge of the war. The United States offered aid through the Marshall Plan to all countries in Europe. The Soviet Union and its allies refused help. 16 other countries, however, welcomed the aid. From 1948 to 1952, administrators of the Marshall Plan worked with these countries. The United States spent !$13,000,000,000. The plan worked. Agricultural production in Marshall Plan countries increased by !10%. Industrial production increased by !35%. Production in some industries, such as steel, increased by much more. There were political results, as well. Stronger economies helped prevent communists from gaining control of the governments in France and Italy. Some Europeans criticized the Marshall Plan. They said it increased tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union in the years after the war. Yet few could deny that the plan was one of the most successful international economic programs in history. Next week, we look at another way the United States provided aid in postwar Europe-- the Berlin Airlift.

Urban League calls for $1 trillion ‘Marshall Plan’ to address persistent disparities
 
06:18
The title of the Urban League’s 40th annual "State of Black America" report is as stark as some of its numbers: "Locked Out: Education, Jobs & Justice." While much has changed, the report finds disparities between blacks and whites have barely budged. Hari Sreenivasan talks to the league’s Marc Morial about why its “equality index” for blacks stands at just 72% of that of whites.

During a joint press conference, Mitchell addressed concerns about Russian influence in the Balkans. “We see Russia playing an increasingly destructive role in much of the Balkans, undermining democratic institutions, and we have been clear in our conversation with Russia that that is neither in their interests nor in the interest of people in the region.” Mitchell met separately with Kosovo's prime minister, Ramush Haradinaj.

State Department spokeswoman uses D-Day as an example of long relationship with Germany
 
03:36
The department has been under fire since U.S. Ambassador to Germany Rick Grenell told Breitbart News he wants to help empower far-right groups in Europe sparking anger from the U.S. ally."We have a very strong relationship with the government of Germany " State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said during a briefing Tuesday. "Looking back in the history books today is the 71st anniversary of the speech that announced the Marshall Plan. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the D-Day invasion.Wednesday is the 74th anniversary of the allied invasion of northern France during World War II a bloody day in which thousands of U.S. and British soldierswere killed while fighting German troops. The massive attack was considered a turning point in the allied effort to push back Nazi forces in Europe.We obviously have a very long history with the government of Germany Nauert continued. And we have a strong relationship with the government of Germany."Nauert was defending Grenells statements to Breitbart that he supports conservative groups in Europe which the Trump appointee said are experiencing an awakening from the silent majority.Ambassadors have a right to express their opinion Nauert responded to questions about whether diplomats can support certain parties overseas. Theyre representatives of the White House whether its this administration or other administrations.Grenells comments sparked outrage among German politicians many of whom were already at odds with the Trump administration. Chancellor Angela Merkel had already signaled a desire to reduce reliance on Washington after President Trump backed out of the Paris climate accord and the Iran nuclear deal.Grenell in a tweet after the Breitbart interview was published last weekend defended his remarks but clarified he wasnt throwing his full support to a particular individual or group.What Ambassador Grenell was doing was merely highlighting that there are some parties and candidates in Europe who are doing well right now Nauert said.With News Wire Services

Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJdp3t-l2HVCydOFe6buIRw?sub_confirmation=1 A State Department spokeswoman has been ridiculed for citing the D-Day invasion as an example of America’s “very strong relationship” with Germany.“We have a very strong relationship with the government of Germany,” Heather Nauert said.“Looking back in the history books, today is the 71st anniversary of the speech that announced the Marshall Plan. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the D-Day invasion. We obviously have a very long history with the government of Germany, and we have a strong relationship with the government of Germany.”Nauert’s comments were mocked online with many pointing out the spokeswoman had been hired directly from Fox News. Saying “we have a very long history with Germany” because the United States fought against Hitler and the Nazi Party in World War II “sounds closer to a veiled insult, and certainly isn’t a positive reflection of the closeness of Germany-US relations”, says Vox.The State Department spokeswoman’s gaff came while she defending remarks made by the new US ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, which drew condemnation from across Germany’s political spectrum.Grenell, a former US spokesman at the United Nations and a strong supporter of Donald Trump, told the far-right Breitbart News he “absolutely wants to empower” European conservatives who are “experiencing an awakening from the silent majority”.Grenell “turned heads when he did an interview with Breitbart”, says CNN. The ambassador was criticised for “politicising diplomacy at a time when US-German relations are strained over Trump's withdrawals from the Iran deal and the Paris climate accord and his imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs on the European Union”, adds the broadcaster.Grenell’s words were “widely received as Grenell weighing in on German politics — against Chancellor Angela Merkel’s centrist government, and in favor of the right-wing Alternative for Deutschland party”, says Vox.Grenell later denied that this is what he meant, “but the damage was done”, adds the website. #Trump, #appointeeHeatherNauert, #invokes, #while, #praising, #Germany, #relations #WorldNews

The NY Times correspondent behind the rise of Castro — Herbert Matthews
 
01:36
Herbert Matthews’ articles in The New York Times played a significant role in U.S. foreign policy at the times, as in 1958, the articles, which consistently demonstrated the idea that Castro would hold free elections and restore the Cuban constitution, helped persuade Washington to cease the shipment of arms to Batista. Instead, Matthews wanted the United States to spend its energy providing some kind of Marshall Plan for Latin America. The State Department believed Matthews in his claims that Castro was not a Communist leader, and the constant presence of Castro in the news increased the awareness of the revolution in the United States. Within the United States, as journalist and historian Anthony DePalma states, “Castro’s dark past was largely replaced in the United States by instant legitimacy”. Matthews had turned Castro into a likable rebel. Throughout 1959, Matthews visited Cuba several times and constantly continued to deny that Castro was a Communist. He claimed that Castro’s revolution itself was not inherently Communist, and that Castro simply wanted a full-blown social revolution. One of Matthews’ most famous statements concerning Castro was made on 5 July 1959, and he stated that: “There are no Reds in the Cabinet and none in high positions in the Government or army in the sense of being able to control either governmental or defense policies. The only power worth considering in Cuba is in the hands of the Premier Castro, who is not only not Communist but decidedly anti-Communist…” - Herbert Matthews, 16 July 1959 As the Cuban revolution continued, Matthews still attempted to prove that Castro’s revolution and regime were not linked to Communism, but in 1960, Castro declared that he would adopt the Communist ideals to reshape Cuban society. Matthews continued to state that the revolution itself had never been associated with Communism and that Castro had not been a Communist when he took power. However, Matthews’ efforts were futile, as many, both in the United States and in Cuba, blamed him for the rise of the Communist leader. Several believed that he had known Castro was a Communist, while the some in the State Department claimed that Matthews had led them to believe Castro had democratic intentions and thus postponed their ability to act on the growing Communism. Few academics did not discredit Matthews, and his more opinionated journalistic style was frowned upon https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbert_Matthews Herbert Matthews grew up a non-observant Jew in a New York of workmen’s circles and socialist meetinghouses, the son of a tailor and grandson of a Jew from a 19th century Poland that was occupied by Imperial Russia. https://kellogg.nd.edu/publications/workingpapers/WPS/313.pdf

Someone needs to fill Heather Nauert in about her countries history

A State Department spokeswoman has been ridiculed for citing the D-Day invasion as an example of America’s “very strong relationship” with Germany. “We have a very strong relationship with the government of Germany,” Heather Nauert said. “Looking back in the history books, today is the 71st anniversary of the speech that announced the Marshall Plan. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the D-Day invasion. We obviously have a very long history with the government of Germany, and we have a strong relationship with the government of Germany.” During the D-Day invasion on 6 June, 1944, around 156,000 British, American, Canadian and other Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy to establish a foothold in Nazi-occupied France. Ms Nauert’s comments were mocked online and dissected by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who pointed out the State Department spokeswoman had been hired directly from Fox News.

George F. Kennan | Historians who Changed History
 
10:28
George F. Kennan is an interesting case for "Historians who Changed History," because he changed history in a very different way. Not from within the profession, but from without. He was an instrumental figure in the beginning of the Cold War, creating the policy of containment, and basically became a historian in protest of how his policy was used. Kennan's work: Long Telegram (1946) https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Long_Telegram X Article (1947) https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Sources_of_Soviet_Conduct his bibliography: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_F._Kennan#Bibliography ------------------------------------------------------------ SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE VIDEOS: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=CynicalCypher88 contribute to my Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CynicalHistorian LET'S CONNECT: https://www.facebook.com/cynicalcypher88 https://twitter.com/Cynical_History ------------------------------------------------------------ Wiki: George Frost Kennan (February 16, 1904 – March 17, 2005) was an American diplomat and historian. He was known best as an advocate of a policy of containment of Soviet expansion during the Cold War on which he later reversed himself. He lectured widely and wrote scholarly histories of the relations between USSR and the United States. He was also one of the group of foreign policy elders known as "The Wise Men". During the late 1940s, his writings inspired the Truman Doctrine and the U.S. foreign policy of "containing" the Soviet Union. His "Long Telegram" from Moscow during 1946 and the subsequent 1947 article "The Sources of Soviet Conduct" argued that the Soviet regime was inherently expansionist and that its influence had to be "contained" in areas of vital strategic importance to the United States. These texts provided justification for the Truman administration's new anti-Soviet policy. Kennan played a major role in the development of definitive Cold War programs and institutions, notably the Marshall Plan. Soon after his concepts had become U.S. policy, Kennan began to criticize the foreign policies that he had seemingly helped begin. Subsequently, prior to the end of 1948, Kennan became confident that positive dialogue could commence with the Soviet government. His proposals were discounted by the Truman administration and Kennan's influence was marginalized, particularly after Dean Acheson was appointed Secretary of State in 1949. Soon thereafter, U.S. Cold War strategy assumed a more assertive and militaristic quality, causing Kennan to lament about what he believed was an abrogation of his previous assessments. In 1950, Kennan left the Department of State—except for two brief ambassadorial stints in Moscow and Yugoslavia—and became a realist critic of U.S. foreign policy. He continued to analyze international affairs as a faculty member of the Institute for Advanced Study from 1956 until his death at age 101.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE: The original release sheet reads: The story of General George C. Marshall, told on Army's "THE BIG PICTURE" -- This is a personal history film of General George C. Marshall who resigned from the Defense Department and settled in Leesburg, Virginia, in 1951. It is a pictorial record of his role as a public servant, spanning a critical half century, which ultimately placed him in the ranks of great American patriots. It is rare in history when a man who has distinguished his name in war goes on to greatness in peace. But for George Catlett Marshall it was a short step from a brilliant military career to his role as statesman, diplomat, and peacemaker winner of the Nobel Prize for Peace. Narrated by Walter Cronkite, and introduced by Master Sergeant Stuart Queen, "The General Marshall Story" will appeal to old and young for it has been skillfully written and produced. It approaches General Marshall's life story from an objective viewpoint with a beguilingly fresh format, used on THE BIG PICTURE this past season in relating the General Bradley story. The same excellence that applied in the Bradley story has been carried into "The General Marshall Story." Visually, and as a professional motion picture exploration for television into the lives of five-star Army generals, THE BIG PICTURE production staff has created a new list of subjects for forthcoming episodes in the weekly TV series.

Inside the Federal Witness Protection Program: Law Enforcement (2002)
 
37:57
The United States Federal Witness Protection Program, also known as the Witness Security Program or WITSEC, is a witness protection program administered by the United States Department of Justice. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0553582437/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0553582437&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=09af7cfcceb2b9a90573114c7210fb62 It is operated by the United States Marshals Service and is designed to protect threatened witnesses before, during, and after a trial. A few states, including California, Illinois, New York, and Texas, have their own witness protection programs for crimes not covered by the federal program. The state-run programs provide less extensive protections than the federal program. The WITSEC program was formally established under Title V of the Organized Crime Control Act of 1970, which in turn sets out the manner in which the United States Attorney General may provide for the relocation and protection of a witness or potential witness of the federal or state government in an official proceeding concerning organized crime or other serious offenses. See 18 U.S.C.A 3521, et. seq. The federal government also gives grants to the states to enable them to provide similar services. WITSEC was originally created as the Federal Witness Protection Program in the mid-1960s by Gerald Shur, when he was Attorney in Charge of the Intelligence and Special Services Unit of the Organized Crime and Racketeering Section of the United States Department of Justice.[4] Most witnesses are protected by the United States Marshals Service, while protection of incarcerated witnesses is the duty of the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Former decorated federal law enforcement officer John Thomas Ambrose was convicted of leaking information about a federal witness in the Witness Protection Program, Chicago Outfit hitman Nicholas Calabrese, to other members of Chicago organized crime. As of 2013, 8,500 witnesses and 9,900 family members have been protected by the U.S. Marshals Service since 1971.[9] According to Gerald Shur, who created the federal program, about 95% of witnesses in the program are "what we call criminals". They may be intentional criminals, or people who are doing business with criminals, such as the engineer who bought off a mayor "because that's how you do business in the city. In his mind, he wasn't doing anything criminal", as Shur said. A witness who agrees to testify for the prosecution is generally eligible to join the program, which is entirely voluntary. Witnesses are permitted to leave the program and return to their original identities at any time, but this is always discouraged by administrators.[10] In both criminal and civil matters involving protected witnesses, the U.S. Marshals cooperate fully with local law enforcement and court authorities to bring witnesses to justice or to have them fulfill their legal responsibilities. Around 17 percent of protected witnesses who have committed a crime will be caught committing another crime, compared to the almost 41 percent of parolees who return to crime. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Federal_Witness_Protection_Program

Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta at the 5th Annual Dean Acheson Award and Lecture
 
55:13
Date: June 28, 2012 Defense Secretary Leon Panetta outlined a bold plan at the United States Institute of Peace to build the capacity of other countries and thereby reduce the strains on the U.S. when it comes to solving the world's security problems. "As the United States helped turn the tide in Iraq and Afghanistan, confronted terrorism in the FATA, Yemen, the Horn of Africa and the Philippines, and participated in the NATO operation in Libya that helped bring down Qaddafi, the approach of working with and through others has only grown in importance to our mission of defending this country," Panetta said during a speech at USIP June 28. The job of "training, advising and partnering" with foreign military and security forces has moved from the periphery to become a critical skill set across the armed forces," he said. Panetta spoke at the USIP during the fifth annual Dean Acheson Lecture, created by USIP's board and a celebration of the former statesman and peacemaker. Acheson, a former secretary of state under President Truman, is credited with confronting the rise of Communism in the middle of the 20th century and helping to design the Marshall Plan after World War II. Panetta noted that USIP's own work is in keeping with the kind of vision he has for security cooperation. "This institute's work has saved lives, and enhanced our national security," he said. "In doing so, it has stayed true to the spirit of the man whose legacy we celebrate tonight, Dean Acheson." More details: http://www.usip.org/publications/panetta-outlines-partnership-plan-usip
"We Meant Well" by Peter Van Buren
 
01:08:41
"We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People" Winning hearts and minds is an idea in which mission success is not a function of superior force, but rather emotional and intellectual appeals to gain supporters from the other side of a conflict. In America’s bellicose past, the strategy was alternatively emphasized, implemented, and ignored during war, insurgencies, and other conflicts. The Iraq War (2003-2011) is no exception; the war demonstrated the efficacy of the “hearts and minds” tactic if it is properly put into practice. In his book, former Foreign Service Officer Peter Van Buren describes, from first-hand experience, how America’s decade-long occupation and the ongoing reconstruction of Iraq was mismanaged, leading to grievous misspending and waste. Van Buren’s lecture will emphasize the military and civilian leadership’s poor planning, disorganization, and lack of forethought for the future of Iraq and its people. He will describe how the U.S. State Department’s good intentions to defeat terrorism led down a road of counterintuitive and frivolous spending. Van Buren’s inside look at the State Department’s misguided efforts span from spending taxpayer money on a sports mural in Baghdad’s most dangerous neighborhood, to pastry classes meant to train women to open cafés on bombed-out streets without water or electricity. Because of ineffective projects and bureaucratic fumbling, the Iraq reconstruction project is remembered as the most expensive hearts-and-minds campaign since the Marshall Plan.

At least 50 million people died, thousands of cities were destroyed, borders were redrawn, and entire nations deported. There was reconstruction work of enormous proportions necessary. The war greatly changed the global balance of power. Germany was divided into Allied occupation zones, Italy and Japan were put aside, France and Great Britain had weakened, the United States and the Soviet Union, soon both in possession of an atomic bomb, had more power than ever before. BERLIN AND NATO Distrust grew into open conflict very soon, and the Iron curtain fell between the East and the West. Stalin established communist governments in Eastern Europe and formed the Eastern Bloc of satellite states. The United States launched the financial aid program, named the Marshall Plan, to recover Europe. The Soviet Union forced its satellite states to refuse the aid. In 1948, Stalin blocked access to the Western sectors of Berlin. The Berlin Blockade had little effect, as the Allied forces opened a constant airlift of food and fuel to help the city survive. Berlin was the symbol of the Cold War again later, when, in 1961, Soviet leader, Nikita Khrushchev, ordered the construction of the Berlin Wall between West and East Berlin. The wall survived for twenty-eight years. In 1949, the United States, and its Western European allies formed a common military alliance, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The Soviet Union responded in 1955, by forming the Warsaw Pact. THE THIRD WORLD Following the Truman Doctrine, the United States tried their best to restrain the spread of communism in the Third World countries that were supported and financed by the Soviet Union. The communists were successful in China and Vietnam. The Korean War yielded no substantial results, and the Korean peninsula remains divided to this day. The most frightening moment of the escalating arms race was probably the Cuban Missile Crisis that took the world very near to a nuclear war. STALIN'S FINAL YEARS The last years of Stalin were full of terror and fear. Already in his seventies, the leader was growing extremely paranoid and was allegedly planning another large-scale wave of repressions. Before he could launch them. he died, after suffering a stroke, on 5 March 1953.

A total of 210,000 gallons, or 5,000 barrels, of oil have leaked from the Keystone pipeline in Marshall County, in the US state of South Dakota. A spokesman for the state's Department of Environment and Natural Resources said this is the largest Keystone oil spill to date in South Dakota. Crews shut down the pipeline Thursday morning and officials are investigating. There were no initial reports of the oil spill affecting waterways, water systems or wildlife. In April 2016, there was a 400-barrel release. The majority of the oil cleanup was completed in two months.

U.S.taxpayers paid for it through USAID. We wouldn't have to rebuild Afghanistan if we quit bombing it! From USAID.gov : "U.S. foreign assistance has always had the twofold purpose of furthering America's foreign policy interests in expanding democracy and free markets while improving the lives of the citizens of the developing world. Spending less than one-half of 1 percent of the federal budget, USAID works around the world to achieve these goals. USAID's history goes back to the Marshall Plan reconstruction of Europe after World War Two and the Truman Administration's Point Four Program. In 1961, the Foreign Assistance Act was signed into law and USAID was created by executive order. With headquarters in Washington, D.C., USAID's strength is its field offices around the world. We work in close partnership with private voluntary organizations, indigenous organizations, universities, American businesses, international agencies, other governments, and other U.S. government agencies. USAID has working relationships with more than 3,500 American companies and over 300 U.S.-based private voluntary organizations." During Vietnam War,USAID worked with the CIA for Operation Phoenix.Look it up. They were involved with the coup that overthrew Haiti's democratically elected leader Jean Bertrand Aristide: http://www.prisonplanet.com/030104coupinhaiti.html They've been involved in Afghanistan for years: http://www.theassassinatedpress.com/yarns.htm The brief also states, "To provoke military action, the CIA will exploit unrest stemming from USAID funded and organized opposition demonstrations slated for later this month or ongoing strikes paid for by the U.S. State Department at the state-owned oil company PSVSA." By 1984, the University of Nebraska, through a $51 million USAID grant, joined the Mujahideen war against the Red Army. The University's Center for Afghanistan Studies produced literature in Pashtu and Dari indoctrinating Afghan children with fanaticism and bigotry. According to The Washington Post of 23 March 2003, Afghan children were "taught to count with illustrations showing tanks, missiles and land mines." In Qur'aanic lessons, Mujahideen were shown the path to heaven by killing a handful of 'godless Russians'. www.countercurrents.org(cached) They were involved in the coup attempt against Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez: http://www.venezuelanalysis.com/news/2183 http://aconstantineblacklist.blogspot.com/2007/09/usaid-in-bolivia-and-venezuela-silent.html http://lists.econ.utah.edu/pipermail/rad-green/2007-November/027918.html
