Artist's Description

Manila, Philippines. 1960

Ike mulls over his speech as he is introduced by President Pro Tempore of Philippine Senate, Eulogio Rodriguez while Speaker Daniel Romualdez looks in. Re-affirming US support for SEATO, a union he forged with Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles. His reception in The Philippines was overwhelmingly affirmative in contrast with other Southeast Asian countries,
offended by Dulles’ saber rattling. Riots greeted him in Taipeh, because The US failed to assist in the recovery of the mainland, Korea because we failed to re-unify the country, and India, because of perceived pro-Pakistani bias. Autocratic rulers later orchestrated “more appropriate” welcomes.
