Abstract:

Kennedy states that the U.S. must focus on its own objectives rather than those of Khrushchev. In the past year, hopes for an end to the cold war have disappeared. The summit meeting was a fiasco, Eisenhower was insulted and his trip to Russia cancelled by his hosts, the Berlin crisis has worsened, disarmament talks have been called off, and the Soviets have increased the tempo of disorder, division, and danger. Congress has been frustrated in its attempts to build more missiles, harden missile bases, and increase the submarine fleet; the U.S. has failed to propose a consistent, comprehensive, and workable disarmament plan that could be supported by the free world; the Russian economy is expanding faster than that of the U.S. Yet Nixon insists that the U.S. has achieved peace without surrender. The U.S. is reacting too late to a cold war crisis in Cuba, Ghana, Japan, Indochina, Poland, and India.
