America Intervenes

The canal reopens

The United States threatened all three nations with economic sanctions if they persisted in their attack. The threats did their work: British and French forces withdrew by December, and Israel finally bowed to U.S. pressure, relinquishing control over the canal to Egypt, which reopened the Suez Canal canal in March 1957.

The start

The response of President Dwight Eisenhower and his administration was measured. Eisenhower and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles also issued stern warnings to the French, British and Israelis to give up their campaign and withdraw from Egyptian soil. Eisenhower was upset with the British in particular for not keeping the United States informed about their intentions.

How it started

The suez crisis occurred in 1956 and it was an event with consequences in context of the Cold War. It triggered when Egyptian president gamal Abdel Nasser nationalized the suez canal, controlled by British and the French before

during the crisis

This move challenged the dominance of western power and sparked a major international crisis. Britain, France, and Israel conspired in secret to regain control of the canal, leading to the military intervention .

120 miles long, the Suez Canal connects the Mediterranean Sea to the Indian Ocean by way of the Red Sea, allowing goods to be shipped between Europe and Asia more directly.Its value to international trade made it a nearly instant source of conflict among Egypt's neighbors-and Cold War superpowers vying for dominance.
