kennan s containment
Kennan’s Containment
  • 1.) Kennan states that the Russian politicians want to maintain their 'prestige.' How would this concept of prestige instigate the Cold War, rather than ending it? 
  • 2.) The first line of the second paragraphs predicts that the United States has to face the Soviet Union at "constantly shifting geographical and political points" in order to contain the spread of Communism. Does this scenario come true, and, if so, how?
  • 3.) What does Kennan mean by the second paragraph? How does this relate to what we know of the events of the Cold War?
  •  4.) Why is it important for the United States to appear "know what it wants," all while dealing with internal problems?
