What do we do after this chaos.
Yalta, Tehran, then Potsdam
We have many conferences ahead to figure it out
These are the leaders the Soviet Union, the US, and Great Britain (left to right). They held several meetings to plan for a post-war world, three of them particularly important.
Hey, I thought we were trying to fix things not have more war. Cut the beef!
Meanwhile at the Yalta Conference...
Stalin, I want free democratic elections in Eastern Europe
No, Roosevelt, I demand influence over Eastern Europe
Y'all thought that atomic bomb on Japan was something, wait until y'all get a load of this hydrogen bomb
Come on now, we're already in a space race, I don't have time for an arms race too
Not so fast there US, the Soviet Union has one too, don't get excited
Here in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, we are communist countries. Economic assets are owned by the government. We emphasize equality and fairness.
We are capitalist countries in the US and in Western Europe. We like economic assets to be owned privately. People have freedom to act in their self-interest
May also restrict people's rights to speak and worship freely , to elect their own representatives, and to allow businesses to operate efficiently.
Equality and Freedom of all people! Communism is good!
The United States is very concerned about rebuiling Europe. This plan is designed to offer $12 billion in aid.
The Marshall Plan is enacted...
The Soviets want no part of this, we're making our own plan.
