The Eisenhower doctrine occured during the midst of a "Cold War" between the United States with it's allies and the communist Soviet Union. The term Eisenhower Doctrine refers to a speech by Preside Dwight D. Eisenhower on 5 January 1957, within a "Special Message to the Situation in the Middle East". Under the Eisenhower Doctrine, a country could request American economic assistance and/or aid from U.S. military forces if it was being threatened by armed aggression from a communist state. It created lot of Anti-Americanism in the Middle East. The result was that doctrine ended in 1959.
