It had changed our culture a little bit. The cold war changed the lives of millions of people. It changed the ways of how we do things now.

He did not believe the communists. He thought that the communists would not set up democratic governments in eastern Europe. •He also believed that after the Soviet Union had established there control in eastern Europe, they would continue to extend there influence into western Europe.

So when this war happened it was going down hard and then they threat mutual nuclear weapons and then they stopped it when winston churchill issued warnings about soviet union as early as 1946 when he claimed the "Iron Curtain" had fallen across Eastern Europe to describe the soviet union grasp for power in the region. the term was used throughout the cold war and this war was between the united state and soviet union.

Russia was determined to exact heavy reparations from Germany. Russia also accused the British of upholding a reactionary monarchy in Greece and supporting an Italian Fascist regime in Trieste. Stalin also blocked Truman's proposal on the internationalization of all principal waterways. More Info The second reason was that just before the Potsdam Conference was to take place, the United States had successfully exploded there atomic bomb.

President Truman thought that since the United States alone possessed the atomic bomb, they could adopt a stiff attitude towards Russian expansion in Europe. More Info Joseph Stalin Chiang Kai -Shek Jawaharlal Nehru Tito The Cold war changed the US and Russia in a lot of ways.

way that people had lived while the Cold war went on. The Cold war was a bloody war just like most of the other wars that we have fought in.
