I became Stalin chapter 243
Unlike the wind, time passed quickly. And the fateful day has come.
“Comrade Secretary-General! Comrade Secretary General!”
“It must be the result of what we thought anyway, so what are you talking about in such a hurry?”
“… Yes, as you said.”
Soviet intelligence networks were densely laid out within the United States. The information they received was enough to predict MacArthur’s victory in the presidential election.
“The results of the count… 58% vs 41%. It’s the Democrat’s demise. Former President Wallace announced his retirement from politics.”
It was an unprecedented feat. In real history, it was only in the 1970s after Roosevelt that the Republican Party achieved such a huge victory.
The Republican victory was only possible with the shovel of the Democrats. Nixon, who came out of the Vietnam War into which the Democratic Party crawled, and achieved détente with China, has only achieved a MacArthur-level victory.
It seemed that Wallace wasn’t quite popular.
“The predecessor was so great. Don’t you think so too?”
“That… That’s right.”
Truman was able to finish Japan with his own hands, as the war ended later. However, Wallace had to receive the baton handed over by Roosevelt, who ended the war alone, and had to fight the far-right forces throughout his tenure.
All achievements of achievement were taken away by Roosevelt, and although Wallace made a contribution to “Eastern diplomacy” in his own way, the media and political hyenas continued to bite him.
The declining economic growth rate also held back Wallace.
“Honestly, I think I did very well… .”
Not a good for the Soviet Union, but not an objectively bad president. The economic growth rate fell from the 8% range to the 6% range, and the unemployment rate rose to the 2% range, causing “economic collapse” and being criticized for causing panic!
Even the ruling party, the Democratic Party, was shifting the blame for the situation to the president and becoming conservative.
“Anyway, it worked as we intended.”
Molotov and Khrushchev nodded. They both knew What is the picture of the Soviet Union.
Kruglov wondered if there was any reason to stay still with the FBI Director Hoover’s winning card in the heart of the enemy, but MacArthur might be better off now. At the very least, it was worth throwing the odds out.
“Wallace is definitely a good partner, but… Even if he manages to be re-elected, it will be difficult to maintain the current honeymoon mood. No matter how hard we try to lower their vigilance, explosive economic growth and global decolonization will eventually put them on alert.”
Even today, the right wing of the United States is united one after another. Devout evangelicals, those who look down on Asia’s red tide, those who believe that an alliance with Western Europe is essential to America’s hegemony… .
The gap between the United States and the Soviet Union was closing, and not a few felt that the Soviet Union had to do something before it could catch up.
“I’d rather them… It might be better to throw him into ‘the Quagmire’.”

“America will be great again! As always!”
Make America Great Again! MacArthur’s inaugural address echoed in the square. People held their breath and paid attention to the vision for the future that the new president was unveiling.
How will MacArthur lead America? The American people elected a president with their own hopes.
Someone chose MacArthur with a will to save America from the rednecks’ beasts. Others chose MacArthur because they wanted a richer and more powerful America. All men and women, young and old, were projecting their wishes into the new president.
“The United States has sacrificed our industry to fatten foreign countries. The United States has made the foreign military stronger at the expense of our own. We just stared blankly as the wealth of the American people, the wealth that should have belonged to us, was passed on to other countries.”
People could tell what MacArthur was talking about.
The strongest enemy who has grown terribly even at this moment and threatens the hegemony of the United States. Some argued that they were not enemies, but in any case, the growth of the Soviet Union was clearly a threat.
“But that is a thing of the past. In this place today, we will talk about the future. A new vision will rule America. Here, I would like to present a new route for the United States, which will be called the ‘MacArthur Doctrine’. All decisions regarding trade, taxes, immigration, and diplomacy will be made with the interests of American workers and American households in mind.”
When talking about the “MacArthur Doctrine,” MacArthur banged the podium. His argument was simple. Only America’s interests will prevail over all value judgments!
The appearance of proudly declaring that neither morality nor international law has any meaning in front of interests made the diplomats of many countries tremble.
“And to defend its interests, America will resolutely fight against all those ideologies that threaten the world. In particular, against communism, we will use all necessary means. Be it diplomatic or force. Together, we will keep America great. God bless America!”
“Wow! hurray! hurray!”
People cheered for MacArthur, who resolutely declared that he would serve America. don’t even know what that means
People each found what they wanted from politicians, and politicians used their illusions to wield power.
MacArthur was now wielding power harder than anyone else.

“We must intervene to stop communism in Asia. This is the only way to protect our allies in Europe, while stopping the expansion of the Soviet Union in Asia!”
State Department officials each briefly exclaimed or sighed.
‘Intervention’. It’s easy to say, but I couldn’t imagine how far it would go. Is it to establish a US-friendly government locally? Or is it the US puppet government or military government? If not, what are you going to do with the Communist Party?
MacArthur’s insistence on stopping Soviet expansion was good to hear. But what if we split up with the USSR right now?
“But, sir… If you set up a confrontational angle with the Soviet Union… .”
“Let the U.S. decide how much troops the U.S. can send in consultation with Britain, and report it to me.”
MacArthur’s unilateral notification was terrified by State Department officials. With this great victory, the parliamentary majority party became the majority, but is it such a reckless push to dispatch troops?
And although he did not say where he would send troops, if he negotiated with the British, the location was fixed.
“In India… Sending US troops?”
“Oh my God… .”
are you india? Are you going to put the US military in a place that will be equal in size or population compared to the whole of Western Europe?
Hundreds of thousands of British troops have already been sucked in and intervened in the muddy mud. What the hell was President MacArthur thinking?
About 4 years after the war ended. The soldiers who return home are busy making new dreams in their hometown and rebuilding their homeland, so you want to bring them back to war?
“I can’t. I’ll have to go and ask for a restock.”
The Indian problem was not limited to India.
All of the Asian Third World bloc, which MacArthur calls a “communist state,” was watching the war in India. From the Republic of Korea in the Far East to Syria in the Middle East, they argued with one voice that India’s independence is an event that symbolizes Asia’s true escape from colonialism.
But what do these countries think when they see the US military going out to trample India under the footsteps of colonialism and imperialism again?
Soviet influence was strong, but not dominant, in the Third World. However, this was no different than the US ruining the great power with its own hands. What will the countries that have just left the colony view the United States?
It would be hypocrisy for the US to liberate its colonies from British imperialism and to call for national self-determination. The diplomatic costs and effort spent there will be in vain.
“how… How can one person ruin diplomacy like this… ?”
One of the diplomats, who had gone berserk, murmured. Hearing this, his colleague responded with a smirk.
“One? No, the people ruined it.”
Elsewhere it was The sovereign people elected MacArthur as president, giving him the power to overturn and ruin foreign policy from time to time.
The sunset outside the window poured into the room. Maybe the reddish twilight… Officials thought it might be America.

“Is that real? Ha ha ha ha ha! I’m done! Now we have won!”
“… All right, Prime Minister.”
The British cabinet let out low cheers and admiration.
The new president of the United States, MacArthur, is determined and fiery, and has pledged to fully support Britain’s war “to stop the spread of communism.”
After the Indonesian colony became virtually independent, British Asian colonies were being swept into a whirlwind of decolonization one by one. Guerrilla warfare has been going on for several years already in the largest British Indian colony.
Even in nominally independent, pro-government protectors, British influence began to diminish. Third worldists, autonomyists, and hardline anti-imperialists entered the cabinet and pushed for a policy of reflection, and the pro-government policy only provoked opposition from the colonists.
“Huh… Really… I’m so glad.”
Eden remembered the late Churchill. Churchill, who predicted that the New World would save the crisis of the Old World, was right. twice as well.
The quasi-defense of Nazi Germany could be crushed by the joint response of the three countries of Great Britain and America. America’s enormous productive power, material support, and enormous manpower easily defeated even Nazi Germany, which had control of all of Europe.
Now, Britain and the United States will be able to solve the colonial problem that the Soviet Union instigates and instigates through a joint response. In addition, the United States was trying to establish a military joint front by contacting the former Axis powers under the water.
“We responded positively that we would consider this proposal from the United States.”
“The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)… Awesome, I like it.”
North Atlantic Treaty Organization. abbreviated as NATO. To counter the Soviet-led EESC, MacArthur proposed a military alliance. Liberal states will now be able to unite under the flag of NATO to jointly respond to Soviet and communist security issues and to jointly suppress colonial rebellion.
The British were well aware of the great power of the United States. What if the Soviet Union did not know about other countries, but if it was the U.S., it went into the USSR, and now what if the US-led military alliance is launched in earnest? The rebels in India will also be slaughtered without a squeak.
“Hahaha! Have a toast today!”
