Focus Point 4 – Who was more to blame for the start of the Cold War, the USA or the USSR?
Both sides were to blame for the Cold War, because it was based on mutual mistrust of the others intentions.
Differences in their systems of government, Communism versus Capitalism.

Fear of aggression from the other side, Soviet domination of Eastern Europe versus Western support for a prosperous Germany, NATO and its atomic bomb.

Mutual hostility of leaders, mutual distrust of Truman and Churchill, and Stalin.

Tension over issues such as Eastern Europe, Greece and Turkey, the Marshall Plan, Germany and Berlin.


What was seen by one side as a justified act of self-defence, was seen as a threat by the other.
