Abstract : The essay explores the status of communism in Latin America. Review of the history of communism in this strategic area of the world indicates its 40-odd year subversive offensive, while mutated to a degree, has caused considerable economic, ideological, and political upheaval. The essay concludes that the interests and national objectives of the United States in Latin America are daily being placed in deeper jeopardy by the current 'indifferent policy' we are pursuing, and that unless a dynamic, new US-Latin American Policy is not forthcoming in the immediate future, communism or a leftist derivative thereof will eventually prevail.
