what did president Truman promise in the Truman Doctrine?
a. to support nations trying to resist Soviet control
b. to fight hunger anywhere in the world
c. to enforce the American foreign policy of brinkmanship
d. to reject the former policy of containment
i'm stuck between A and D...my book says "..Truman Doctrine and the policy of containment continued to guide U.S. into controversial involvements.."
that means they didn't reject the containment policy?
You've got it! The Truman Doctrine did not reject the policy of containment. It continued to want to contain the Soviet Union and keep as many nations as possible from joining the Soviet allies.
The answer is A.
