Richard Alpaugh quote
Richard Alpaugh, deputy to the commanding general of the Army Security Assistance Command

The U.S. wants to create situations where no country or organization is so overwhelmingly dominant that it can reach out and take control of its neighbor. That creates an aura of peace and supports mutual goals. The U.S. government is doing this for purely altruistic reasons to make the world a better place.
