Truman, Johnson and Kennedy administrations took their "marching orders from Moscow". Truman supported the South Koreans and fought off waves of Soviet supported Chinese and S. Korean troops and ran their commie asses back. The Soviets provided MIG 15 aircraft. Truman never took any marching orders from the Soviets. He backed the Berlin Air Lift and ordered it. Kennedy backed Khruschev down and they removed the missles from Cuba. Kennedy never took any marching orders from the Soviets. Johnson escalated the war in Viet Nam. He damn sure did not take any marching orders from the Soviets. FDR cooperated with the Soviets as they did most of the dirty work defeating the Nazis in Europe. The hilarious part of this "commies at State Dept" nonsense is that as early as 1933 ALMOST EVERYONE that was a career officer in the State Dept. they resisted FDR's overtures to the Soviets every inch of the way. As early as his first year in office FDR played that Moscow would help him defeat any potential wars with Germany and Japan. And he was right. In 1945 things changed at his death. LONG BEFORE the McCArthy era and the work had already been done by the late 40s running off, exposing and killing off most all of spies here and abroad that had little if any influences here. NO Democratic administration took their marching orders from Moscow. Where do you come up with these myths?
