Storyboard Text

  • What you're doing is dangerous and against your promise.
  • I am only trying to secure the Soviet Union's loyalty with western neighboring countries.
  • We must do what we can to stop Stalin and his spread of Communism
  • I agree, this will be a great way to stop it.
  • No, this could allow other nations to take money from us.
  • We must make it an official policy of the US in order for it to work.
  • When World War II was coming to an end, Stalin, Roosevelt, and Churchill met one last time. During this meeting Stalin agreed to let Poland, Bulgaria, and Romania become Democratic countries. Quickly, Stalin broken this promise, and without a vote, made them communist countries.
  • Oh, so this is how it is going to continue on?
  • Yes, anything to stop your spread of Communism.
  • The United States plan was to not allow the Soviet Union to expand Communism, they wanted to contain it. Because it was a dangerous threat and could alter the minds of Americans.
  • Truman came to Congress on March 12, 1947 to propose that we try his policy known as the Truman Doctrine. He expressed his thoughts on the dangers of the spread of Communism, and Congress eventually agreed.
  • By setting the Truman Doctrine in place as the United States official policy it drove the split between the US and the Soviet Union even deeper than it was before.
  • The Soviet's took offense to the US and other European countries helping Western Germany regain stability after World War II. So in response the Soviet's blocked off access between east and west Germany in June of 1948
  • After the blockade was set up, poverty and starvation flooded Western Germany. So to act back President Truman set up carrier planes to drop supples into West Germany to give help to the citizens. The Soviets finally lifted the blockade in May of 1949
