The US is to blame for the Cold War

———————————–

The US is to blame for the Cold War

From when World War II ended in 1945 all the way up to the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the Cold War dominated international affairs

...

Since Russia had been attacked twice from Germany in 30 years, so the Soviets wanted Germany to be broken up and powerless

...

America, France and Britain were given western Germany while Russia took eastern Germany

...

The Soviet Union was not granted the right to rule the new countries as it wanted, there would be mandatory elections, which might throw away the power of Russia there

...

To prevent Europe from adopting communism, the US would provide the funds necessary to keep European countries in free enterprise

...

In a conference at Yalta, Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt agreed on terms of how Europe was going to be governed; there would be free elections throughout Europe and the Soviets would have control over some of Eastern Europe

...

From an American perspective the Cold War was largely a ‘war on communism’ – this outlook by the US caused and sustained the Cold War

...

In order for Russia to be able to protect itself in the future, it would need to be surrounded by countries that would be loyal to Soviet Russia
