Answer: C. The provision of military support to countries fighting communism.
The Truman Doctrine was first stated by President Truman to Congress in 1947, and was mostly about providing economic aid. Truman stated: "It must be the policy of the United States to support free people who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures." Essentially, the Truman Doctrine pledged American aid elsewhere in the world to check the spread of communist and Soviet influence. The policy was first put into action in 1948 by providing economic support to Greece and Turkey to stave off communist movement in those countries.
The Eisenhower Doctrine was proclaimed by President Eisenhower in 1957. Eisenhower pledged to provide economic <u>or also military</u> aid, as needed, to any Middle Eastern country needing help in resisting communist aggression. This was in response to Soviet and other communist support to Egypt, and as a warning to the USSR in regard to the Suez Crisis of 1956.
Proto-Mongols. The proto-Mongols emerged from an area that had been inhabited by humans and predecessor hominin species as far back as the Stone Age over 800,000 years ago. The people there went through the Bronze and Iron Ages, forming tribal alliances, peopling, and coming into conflict with early China.
1. Californians approved a constitution that banned slavery.
California was started as groups of settlements that had a largely pro-freedom base, as many of the people who have moved to the west were from the North who brought their beliefs with them. The Californians, because of this, were able to not only approve a constitution that banned slavery, but also join the Union as a free state.
3. Free states would gain a majority over slave states in the Senate.
Because the slave states were keen at getting even with the more populous Northern states inside the government, they wanted a even playing field inside the Senate (as the North had more populations, which meant more representatives). With California joining the Union, it would have gave the Free States much more power in the government then the Slave States.
5. Other western territories might follow California’s example of entering as a free state.
Remember, the South were in a great disadvantage, and so they wanted to keep the balance of state powers in between both the Free States & Slave States. However, with the admission of the Californias to the Free States, it offset the balance within the government, leading to a larger pro-freedom government, and overriding the beliefs of the South.
