Speaks from Oval Office: `These are its three interrelated parts. First, direct military assistance which is the biggest part right now. Second, the contributions we make to support the defense efforts of other nations. And third, our program of economic and technical assistance. This is not a program to carry the world on our shoulders, it is a program to make it possible for the world to stand on its own feet. The cost of the entire Mutual Security Program that I have recommended is less than two and a half percent of our national output. And this country is raising its output by something like five percent a year. We can afford this program. No, the real threat to our security isn't the danger of bankruptcy, it is the danger of Communist aggression. If Communism is allowed to absorb the Free Nations, one by one, then we would be isolated from our sources of supply and detached from our friends. Then we would would have to take defense measures that might really bankrupt our economy and change our way of life so that we couldn't recognize it as American any longer. That's the very thing we are trying to keep from happening. The program I recommended today is a necessity if we are going to block the plans of the Soviet rulers to dominate the world.
