    March 12, 1947 - In a reaction to the ongoing crises in Greece and Turkey, US President Harry Truman proclaims what would become known as the 'Truman doctrine'. His doctrine was a reaction against the spread of communism in Eastern Europe and marked the start of the American containment policy.
