Napkin Agreement

In response to American assertions that Britain is making a “policy of power” in Greece, Churchill responded in a speech: “What is power politics?… Is a navy twice as big as any other navy in world power politics? Is the world`s largest air force, with bases in all parts of world power politics? Do we have all the gold in the politics of world power? If that is the case, we are certainly not guilty of these offences, I must unfortunately say. These are luxury products that have gone from us. [80] Churchill reflected the lingering bitterness towards American criticism of his policy during the Dekemvriana and in 1947 presented the proclamation of the Truman Doctrine as a belated American recognition of the correctness of his Greek policy and wrote how subsequent events had “perfectly justified” his action. [81] Churchill opposed the statement of the sitting Secretary of State Dean Acheson before the Senate in 1947 that the victory of the Greek Communists in the Greek Civil War was “dangerous” for the United States and the American “vehement criticism” of British policy in dekemvriana. [81] At least part of the reasons Churchill revealed the agreement as a percentage in triumph and tragedy was to present himself as a far-sighted statesman who had cleverly signed the percentage agreement to prevent the Soviet Union from supporting the EAM. [81] There is a reason why contract study takes so long in law school (and why the left eye of a lawyer who reads it probably trembles right now). Contracts are complicated. To simplify this situation, a binding contract requires an offer, acceptance of this offer, consideration and, in some cases, the contract must be written. The towel has three of these four elements: Rogoff apparently offered Hopfinger a million dollars over ten years, Hopfinger accepted this offer, and all in writing, if only on a cocktail napkin. The subject thus becomes under consideration. (Cue more increases.) However, most historians believe that the agreement is extremely important. In The Cambridge History of the Cold War, Norman Naimark writes that, with the Yalta and Potsdam accords, “the famous percentage agreement between Joseph Stalin and Winston Churchill… confirms that Eastern Europe, at least initially, would be within the sphere of influence of the Soviet Union. [72] “The piece of paper or towel should clearly identify the contracting parts.
