The United States was losing public support for the Korean War so Truman and his advisors decided to work for a negotiated peace. MacArthur disagreed. The general believed that America's future lay in Asia, not Europe. In an inflammatory letter to the House minority leader, Republican Joseph J. Martin, he denounced the Korean stalemate, declaring "There is no substitute for victory". His strategy backfired and on April 11 Truman relieved MacArthur of his command, accusing him of insubordination.
