Harry Truman

Data de nascimento: 8. Maio 1884
Data de falecimento: 26. Dezembro 1972
Outros nomes: Harry Spencer Truman

Harry S. Truman foi o 33º presidente dos Estados Unidos. O último running mate de Franklin D. Roosevelt em 1944, Truman chegou à presidência em 12 de abril de 1945 após a morte de Roosevelt. Em sua presidência, os EUA terminaram a Segunda Guerra Mundial; a tensão com a União Soviética cresceu após o conflito, iniciando a Guerra Fria.

Truman nasceu no Missouri, passando a maior parte de sua infância na fazenda da família. Durante a Primeira Guerra Mundial, ele serviu na França com a Guarda Nacional como oficial da artilharia. Depois da guerra, Truman foi dono de uma retrosaria antes de juntar-se ao Partido Democrata. Seu primeiro cargo público foi de oficial do condado, e em 1934 ele foi eleito Senador dos Estados Unidos. Ele ganhou proeminência nacional ao chefiar o Comitê Truman, que expôs gastos, fraudes e corrupção nos contratos de guerra governamentais.

Apesar de a Alemanha Nazista ter-se rendido algumas semanas após Truman ter assumido a presidência, esperava-se que a guerra contra o Japão durasse mais um ano. Sua decisão de usar armas nucleares contra o Japão acelerou o fim do conflito, mas permanece controversa até hoje. Sua presidência foi um ponto de virada nas relações exteriores, com os Estados Unidos apoiando uma política internacionalista junto com seus aliados europeus. Trabalhando próximo do Congresso, Truman ajudou na fundação das Nações Unidas, emitiu a Doutrina Truman contra o comunismo, e aprovou o Plano Marshall de US$ 12 bilhões para reconstruir a Europa. A aliança com a União Soviética durante a guerra transformou-se em oposição nos tempos de paz. Ele supervisionou a Ponte Aérea de Berlim em 1948 e a criação da OTAN em 1949. Quando a Coreia do Norte comunista invadiu a Coreia do Sul em 1950, Truman imediatamente enviou tropas norte-americanas e conseguiu apoio da ONU para iniciar a Guerra da Coreia. Após um sucesso inicial, as forças da ONU foram repelidas por uma intervenção chinesa e o conflito ficou em impasse durante os últimos anos de sua presidência.

Acusações de corrupção em sua administração, que foi ligada a alguns membros do seu gabinete na Casa Branca, foi o principal ponto de discussão na eleição presidencial de 1952, em que Adlai Stevenson II, sucessor de Truman como candidato democrata, foi derrotado por Dwight D. Eisenhower. Avaliações populares e acadêmicas de sua presidência foram inicialmente negativas, porém acabaram ficando mais positivas após Truman ter-se aposentado da política. Ele faleceu em dezembro de 1972 em Kansas City.

„All these things we knew before.“

—  Harry Truman
Report on the Potsdam Conference (1945), Context: Our victory in Europe was more than a victory of arms. It was a victory of one way of life over another. It was a victory of an ideal founded on the rights of the common man, on the dignity of the human being, on the conception of the State as the servant — and not the master — of its people. A free people showed that it was able to defeat professional soldiers whose only moral arms were obedience and the worship of force. We tell ourselves that we have emerged from this war the most powerful nation in the world — the most powerful nation, perhaps, in all history. That is true, but not in the sense some of us believe it to be true. The war has shown us that we have tremendous resources to make all the materials for war. It has shown us that we have skillful workers and managers and able generals, and a brave people capable of bearing arms. All these things we knew before. The new thing — the thing which we had not known — the thing we have learned now and should never forget, is this: that a society of self-governing men is more powerful, more enduring, more creative than any other kind of society, however disciplined, however centralized.

„Desperate men are liable to destroy the structure of their society to find in the wreckage some substitute for hope.“

—  Harry Truman
Report on the Potsdam Conference (1945), Context: Any man who sees Europe now must realize that victory in a great war is not something you win once and for all, like victory in a ball game. Victory in a great war is something that must be won and kept won. It can be lost after you have won it — if you are careless or negligent or indifferent. Europe today is hungry. I am not talking about Germans. I am talking about the people of the countries which were overrun and devastated by the Germans, and particularly about the people of Western Europe. Many of them lack clothes and fuel and tools and shelter and raw materials. They lack the means to restore their cities and their factories. As the winter comes on, the distress will increase. Unless we do what we can to help, we may lose next winter what we won at such terrible cost last spring. Desperate men are liable to destroy the structure of their society to find in the wreckage some substitute for hope. If we let Europe go cold and hungry, we may lose some of the foundations of order on which the hope for worldwide peace must rest. We must help to the limits of our strength. And we will.

„If wars in the future are to be prevented the nations must be united in their determination to keep the peace under law.“

—  Harry Truman
Address to Congress (1945), Context: If wars in the future are to be prevented the nations must be united in their determination to keep the peace under law. Nothing is more essential to the future peace of the world than continued cooperation of the nations which had to muster the force necessary to defeat the conspiracy of the Axis powers to dominate the world. While these great states have a special responsibility to enforce the peace, their responsibility is based upon the obligations resting upon all states, large and small, not to use force in international relations except in the defense of law. The responsibility of the great states is to serve and not to dominate the world.

„We have used it in order to shorten the agony of war, in order to save the lives of thousands and thousands of young Americans. We shall continue to use it until we completely destroy Japan's power to make war. Only a Japanese surrender will stop us.“

—  Harry Truman
Report on the Potsdam Conference (1945), Context: I realize the tragic significance of the atomic bomb. Its production and its use were not lightly undertaken by this Government. But we knew that our enemies were on the search for it. We know now how close they were to finding it. And we knew the disaster which would come to this Nation, and to all peace-loving nations, to all civilization, if they had found it first. That is why we felt compelled to undertake the long and uncertain and costly labor of discovery and production. We won the race of discovery against the Germans. Having found the bomb we have used it. We have used it against those who attacked us without warning at Pearl Harbor, against those who have starved and beaten and executed American prisoners of war, against those who have abandoned all pretense of obeying international laws of warfare. We have used it in order to shorten the agony of war, in order to save the lives of thousands and thousands of young Americans. We shall continue to use it until we completely destroy Japan's power to make war. Only a Japanese surrender will stop us.

„At the present moment in world history nearly every nation must choose between alternative ways of life. The choice is too often not a free one.“

—  Harry Truman
Context: At the present moment in world history nearly every nation must choose between alternative ways of life. The choice is too often not a free one. One way of life is based upon the will of the majority, and is distinguished by free institutions, representative government, free elections, guarantees of individual liberty, freedom of speech and religion, and freedom from political oppression. The second way of life is based upon the will of a minority forcibly imposed upon the majority. It relies upon terror and oppression, a controlled press and radio; fixed elections, and the suppression of personal freedoms. I believe that it must be the policy of the United States to support free peoples who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures. I believe that we must assist free peoples to work out their own destinies in their own way. Speech to a joint session of the US Congress (12 March 1947), outlining what became known as The Truman Doctrine
