This is a foreign policy strategy created and executed by the US after WWII founding it's first key purpose in the Truman Doctrine of 1947. President Harry Truman warned of the evils of communism that threatened the democratic freedom of its people which like the US, the Soviet Union wanted a world modeled on their own country’s society and values. Even though the Soviet claimed they provided all citizens with economic and social rights, the US saw communism as a slave state that control the private life and thoughts of its citizens. A threat that violated both democratic rights and civil liberties of its citizens and therefore required the continued efforts of America to make sure that it did not spread to the United States and other nations that have not yet moved politically towards Soviet Union communism. As such, this Policy of Containment stated that the US would try to stop (contain) the spread of Communism by creating strategic alliances or support to help weak countries to resist Soviet advances.

This is a containment strategy plan that the U.S. used in the Cold War to prevent communism country, the Soviet Union from spreading Communism by providing either military support, economic and/or technical assistance to noncommunist countries. Its aimed by so doing was to contain the domino effect of the growing influence and power of the Soviet Union over other noncommunist country's political system from moving towards communism within its existing limits. Thus, blocking the expansion of the USSR and communism. It was originally devised by US diplomat and historian George F. Kennan, best known as "the father of containment". His writings inspired the Truman Doctrine and the U.S. foreign policy of containment during the Truman Administration.
