We are aiding Greece and Turkey because they are in a economic crisis
The United States are hypocrites!
We took over China!
This is the Truman Doctrine Speech in which Truman wants to help aid Greece and Turkey as they have a financial problem. This is an important time in which he describes a armed minority will be able to take over but is trying to insist that its Russia because at the time Russia is trying to expand and spread communism.
We are now divided into two parts
The Soviet Ambassador at the time sent a telegram making some points as to the United States also wanting to do the exact same thing except with the use of Capitalism. He stated that the United States are pretty much hypocrites and how they are that different from what they are.
Before the events of the division between Korea, there was another conflict in which the US and Russia were involved and aiding each of the leaders they wanted to win. Jiang Jieshi would lose this war and would flee while China would become a communist government.
A Communist get him!
Then another conflict happened with Korea in which North Korea was fighting for the Spread of communism and South Korea was fighting for capitalism. They would continue to fight with the aids of Russia and United States. Before they wanted the war to become anymore catastrophic, the 38th parallel was formed in which Korea was divided into two parts.
An arms race began with both Russia and United States. Once Russia had set off an atomic bomb, The United States only issue was to have a better and bigger one. They would start ignoring everything when it comes to having a strong military and would only use money on nuclear weapons.
Another Red Scare occurred when many officials were on the hunt for communist. If you happened to be a communist you would be blacklisted and not be able to work. When these types of things occurred, you couldn't talk to a communist and you had to show as much as possible that you were loyal to your country.
