The conflict could also be a conflict between the us and thus the Soviet Union . But the two powers never fought directly. -Is that so ? -Why so? Well, that’s the premise of a cold war, there’s conflict but without ever fighting. We are therefore only threatening ourselves. -You know that with my atomic bombs I could explode you. -Oh yeah ? Well I even have many bombs too which i could do the same . -And why don’t you’re doing it then? -Because i don’t want to, but if I wanted i’d . Anyway, there you’ve it, this is often often the conflict . But that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a war . There are wars, but never directly between these two powers.
We are talking about conflict by intervening countries. Let’s return to February 1945 during the Yalta Conference. war II is almost over. The us and thus the USSR meet. -Well that’s great, Germany is losing. i’m going to liberate all of continental Europe slightly . you are taking care of the uk and you’ll be fine. -No, but do not be concerned , I can assist you too. -Yeah, you help me quickly if you’d like . But I even have the thing in hand. Germany, I’ll have it, worry. In short, the two countries want to be primarily responsible of the autumn of Third Reich . which they know that the countries they liberate are getting to be under their influence.
-Good Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania. You were Nazis, now you’re becoming Communists. -Okay, but it feels slightly weird as a change. -You will get used to it, do not be concerned . -The other day I wanted to undertake to to a racial purge, but now i don’t see the aim . Poland, freed from the Germans by communist resistance fighters themselves aided by the Soviets, logically became pro-Soviet. -Hi USSR! i’m a communist now! -It’s nice, we’ll get along well. -Yeah well, I’m still from Poland, you know, here we aren’t very Russophile in manners. Italy was liberated in 1943 and put its government back in place .
The French government was also replace in place in 1944 with a provisional government. the same goes for Belgium and thus Netherlands . But also Luxembourg and thus the Nordic countries. Bohemia-Moravia becomes independent from Germany again, Slovakia is returned to him to form Czechoslovakia. Albania is additionally becoming independent again. Then Yugoslavia is reformed. But hey, peace barely installed, will only be temporary. Germany and Austria, invaded by the Soviet Union become divided occupation territories between the USSR, the us , the united kingdom and France. -What can we do with these territories? Are we recreating countries? -Yeah, we make neutral countries.
But it’ll take time. In Greece, a pro-Western government is about up but a war with the pro-communists begins. However, although the war is over in Europe, it had been not finished within the Pacific. In August 1945, the us bombed Japan once and for all with weapon of mass destruction . -I’m tired of this war, but i want to continue. -Argh! It hurts… -You saw, I even have an atomic bomb . -But please, let’s stop … BOOM! -You saw ? I threw another atomic bomb three days later.
-I surrender, don’t overdo it! But there was no need to do the same . -Yes i do know , but it had been to impress the Soviet Union . – Did you see how I slaughtered Japan with my atomic bomb? – Uh yes yes, well done, you’re very strong. you’ve the atomic bomb what … -Roh! i’m super jealous! But it had been mainly in 1947 that the conflict began. In 1947, the us began to worry of the excessive presence of communist countries in Europe. -It’s crazy, before the war only Russia was communist, now it’s like I can see it! Something possesses to be done. The Truman doctrine is pronounced, the us talks about the danger of communism. -There could also be a true danger in Europe and within the world: The arrival of communism!
Something possesses to be done. the earth is now divided in two: There are the good guys on one side, that is, us Americans, land of freedom and thus the other’s wicked, that is, the Soviets, land of totalitarianism and civil war! this is often often how the Marshall Plan stems from.
