We Just Seem to Be Pounding His Feet Into the Ground
Mauldin, William (1921-2003)1965
After World War II, the United States and Soviet Union emerged as superpowers on the world stage. After years of colonialism, Southeast Asian countries were particularly vulnerable to establishing communist governments as a means to independence. The Soviet Union and the People’s Republic of China pushed nationalists in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Korea towards adopting communism as a base for their independence. Committed to the preservation of individual freedom and liberty, the United States pushed for democratic elections in countries that had once been European colonies.
