US History

posted by .

For decades, America has been locked in hostile confrontation with the two great Communist powers, the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China. We were engaged with the one at many points and almost totally isolated from the other, but our relationships with both had reached a deadly impasse [standstill]. All three countries were victims of bondage about which George Washington long ago warned in these words: The nation which indulges toward another an habitual [constant] hatred is a slave to its own animosity [hatred].
