Descripción

America's experience in Greece has often been cited as a model by those later policymakers in Washington who regard the involvement as a "e;victory"e; for American foreign policy. Indeed, President Johnson and others referred to Greece as the model for America's deepening involvement in Vietnam during the mid-1960's. Greece became the battlefield for a new kind of war--one that included the use of guerrilla warfare, propaganda, war in the shadows, terror tactics and victory based on outlasting the enemy. It was also a test before the world of America's resolve to protect the principle of self-determination. Jones argues that American policy towards Greece was the focal point in the development of a global strategy designed to combat totalitarianism. He also argues that had the White House and others drawn the real "e;lessons"e; from the intervention in Greece, the decisions regarding Vietnam might have been more carefully thought out.
