  • Not a chance, mine are!
  • (Stalin-USSR, Truman-USA) During the course of WWII the USSR and the USA came together to take down Germany. The USSR are communists and USA are capitalists. The only reasons they were getting along is because of the common goal of defeating Germany, now since they accomplished that they begin to disagree because of the completely different ideologies.
  • Brinkmanship
  • Im gonna nuke you.
  • They didn't want the expansion of communism, the Marshall plan was offered to all european countries, no matter what the government. The reasoning was to make the countries prosperous again so the expansion of communism would be less likely. 400 million economic and military package was part of the Truman Doctrine. The Marshall Plan aid would be used by the europeans to buy manufactured goods and raw material from the united states and Canada.
  • Detente
  • Im running out of cash!
  • In order to appear powerful the US and the Soviet Union used the method of deterence to build up their capacity to fight without the actual intension to fight because of the unknown outcomes. This caused the build up of many nuclear weapons. "ARMS RACE"

  • The result of expansionism, containment and deterence that led up to the Cuban Missile crisis is an example of brinksmanship. Brinksmanship is being on the edge of nuclear war, the US and USSR built up weapons and were on edge.
  • You nuke me I will nuke you right back!
  • The Cuban Missile crisis brought the two countries to the brink of war. Detente was the period of time where the tensions were reduced. Mainly due to three things. The war was costing to much money, hopes to open up trade barriers and the US wanted to use there money on social programs instead
  • Same here, we have so much better things to spend our money on.
  • The detente between the US and USSR showed how countries with total different ideologies and beliefs can settle differences. The detente only lasted 15 years but the efforts of co-operation showed hope for future affairs.
