Answer . world war 2 had a great effect on women The main policy was containment of the communist role in the world. Russia was seen as trying to spread communist doctrine…, and this became the main concern for the US and set policy for the next 60 years.
The U.S. policy for WWI was isolationism and for WWII it was alsoisolationism until Pearl Harbor was attacked.
Australia changed it's foreign policy as a result of World War two. The reason being that Australia's ties with their mother country, Britain did not give them any advantage d…uring the war. Australia had hoped that Britain would be able to defend them in the case of an invasion, but as it happened in World War two, Britain was busy fighting off the Germans in the 'European War'. When Pearl Harbour was attacked, USA came into the war and joined with Australia in fighting off the 'Japs'. So as a result of World War Two, Australia came to depend on USA, rather than their 'mother country', Britain.
How did World War 2 and the Cold War with the Soviet Union change the direction of US foreign policy?
The emergence of the Soviet Union put an end to the US pre-war tendency toward isolationism. Foreign policy turned toward preventing the expansion of communism, which would bo…lster the political and military strength of the USSR (which already threatened the security of Europe). Acceptance of non-democratic regimes (e.g. Cuba under Batista, South Vietnam) was found preferable to allowing socialist governments to take root.
They adopted a policy of INTERVENTION, in Europe in contrast to their policy of isolation in the inter-war period. They intervened to stop the spread of Communism more specifi…cally called CONTAINMENT. They tried to contain Communism in Russia, it slightly failed as it did spread to much of Eastern Europe however it did succeed on Western Europe and Greece. They did this by strengthening European economies with massive loans among other things.
Vietnam was now in the same category as the other communist nations, and treated accordingly.
If the US could and would (or would) stand up to a physical move on the part of the communists.
The U.S. remained involved in World affairs and kept its place as aworld power.
The press was kept OUT of US military operations and only let in under strict control; commencing with Operation Urgent Fury in 1983 (Grenada). During Desert Storm (Iraq-Janua…ry/February 1991), the media (news people) were placed in controlled groups.
In World War 1
It did not change until WWII.
In Vietnam War

In Vietnam War
The US was extremely cautious about using it's military again, after Vietnam. For example, the very first use of US military forces after Vietnam was "Operation Urgent Fury", …the US invasion of Grenada in 1983. The US was so cautious, that President Reagan ordered NO PRESS (and yes the press was angry about it when the op was all over with). When it was successfully concluded, then everyone heard about. After this success, the US got bolder and commenced Operation Just Cause, the invasion of Panama in 1989. Again success. The third one was the charm...and the boldest of all, Operation Desert Storm in 1991...the US was back on the band wagon!

In World War 2
After the devastation of WWI, The united states cut all formal diplomatic ties to foreign countries. The USA entered a period of total Isolationism, in which they refused to e…ven contact the foreign powers of Europe and Asia. Second Answer by Editor: The US did not cut off all formal diplomatic ties to foreign countries. Many Americans had become isolationists after the devastation of World War 1. President Roosevelt was not an isolationist. He did negotiate with the Japanese concerning the oil embargo. He did keep in close contact with Winston Churchill. The correct answer is: The USA declared themselves to be neutral and they maintained that policy until Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.
