What led to the Cold War?
By Aaron Vargas
The Cold War primarily conisted of the U.S. and the Soviet Union. This was not an average war but more of a battle of opinion.
The United States and Soviet Union had two separate goals. Soviet Union was to spread communism while United States worked to stop the spread.
Another factor was the thought of someone being attacked. There was tension in the air and everyone was aware of it but this was not so much addressed.
Instead, we started to make treaties with other countries signifying if the soviet union attacked, they would jump in with us, the Soviets did the same.
The Soviet Union was aware of our weapons which played a factor in keeping them from attacking. In specific, our nuclear bombs.
The Soviet Union controlled East Germany and controlled them real strict. You were not legally allowed to cross into West (Democratic) Germany.
This grew more tension which lead to a suspicious feeling and mistrust.
