CapitalismIn Communism, all goods are collected from the whole territory (the larger, the more variety in goods) and redistributed to the population. There is NOTHING left over to trade with another country.In Capitalism, trade is the only way to succeed. You MUST compete in the market and sell your goods as often as possible to as many people as possible to be successful.Any Country that is Communist is Lost to the Americans.Any Country that is Capitalist is Lost to the Russians.

18 A World DividedThe Cold War is all about East Vs. West
19 Document 1: This is an excerpt from Winston Churchill’s “Iron Curtain” speech, March 5, 1946 From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the continent. Behind that line lie all the capitals of the ancient states of Central and Eastern Europe All these famous cities and the populations around them lie in the Soviet sphere (under the “protection” of the USSR) and all are subject in one form or another, not only to Soviet influence but to a very high and increasing measure of control from Moscow. 3. How is the “iron curtain” a dividing line?
20 Document 2: Excerpt from Winston Churchill’s “Iron Curtain” speech, March 5, 1946 The Communist parties, which were very small in these Eastern European nations, have been raised to power far beyond their numbers and are seeking everywhere to obtain totalitarian control. Police governments are prevailing in nearly every case, and so far, except in Czechoslovakia, there is no true democracy. This is certainly not the liberated Europe we fought to build up. Nor is it one which contains the essentials of permanent peace. 4. Describe the type of governments that Churchill believes are governing Eastern Europe and how this contrasts with why the Allies fought in WWII.
21 Add the Iron Curtain to your Lecture Notes and underline it. Iron Curtain- A Physically Divided World Illustrate the following event on your Cold War Map.

Include the Line color in the Key on the rightAdd the Iron Curtain to your Lecture Notes and underline it.
22 1945- Iron Curtain- From a speech by Winston Churchill The Iron Curtain was a symbol to show that Eastern and Western Europe were separated completely. Nothing could get through that imaginary barrier. No People in or out. No ideas in or out. No goods in or out. Russia feared their best, brightest most creative people would leave for a less structured life in the west and that westerners would corrupt the Russians.

29 Economically Divided- Foreign Aid and the Cold War Both the USA and the USSR wanted to avoid the kind of economic desperation that had helped Hitler rise to power. They knew they couldn't leave the countries of Europe with all the destruction and poverty left by WWII. They solved this problem by offering financial aid to the nations of Europe, and thus boosted their own economies as well.The Marshal PlanThe Molotov PlanThe Truman DoctrineUS economic support of Batista in CubaRussian Economic Aid to Egypt to build the Aswan DamUS economic support of the Contras in NicaraguaUS economic support of the Shah in Iran
30 Document 3: This is an excerpt from Secretary of State Marshall’s speech explaining his plan for European recovery, June 5, 1947I need to say that the world situation is very serious Europe must have a great deal of additional help, or face heavy economic, social, and political damage. This would have a harmful effect on the world at large. There are also possibilities of disturbances (fighting) because of the desperation of the people concerned...So the United States should do whatever it can to help restore normal economic health to the world. Without this there can be no political stability or peace. Our policy is directed not against any country or doctrine . . .[but] against hunger, poverty, desperation and chaos (disorder). Its purpose is to revive a working economy in the world. 5. Why did Secretary of State Marshall suggest this plan for European recovery?
31 Marshall Plan- 1947 “European Recovery Program.” Imagined by Secretary of State, George MarshallThe U. S. should provide aid to all European nations that need it.$12.5 billion of US aid to Western Europe extended to Eastern Europe & USSR, (but this was rejected).

33 The Molotov Plan- 1947This economic plan was the USSR's answer to the Marshall Plan. It was exactly the same idea. These countries received money and help to rebuild in the image of the USSR- the Communist image.

35 Truman Doctrine 1947A Civil War broke out in Greece over limited resources. Local Communists looked like they might win.Turkey was under pressure from the Communist USSR to give up part of the Dardanelles. (The USSR wanted a warm water port.)Truman felt the U. S. should support free peoples throughout the world who were resisting Communists both inside or outside their borders.He made the Truman Doctrine US Policy.
36 Document 4: This is an excerpt from President Truman’s speech to Congress, March 12, 1947. I believe it must be the policy of the United States to support free peoples who are resisting attempted subjugation (take over) by armed minorities or by outside pressure. Should we fail to aid Greece and Turkey in this fateful (important) hour, the effect will be far-reaching to the West. The seeds of totalitarian dictatorships are watered by misery and want. They spread and grow in the evil soil of poverty and strife. They reach their full growth when the hope of a people for a better life has died. Therefore, I propose giving Greece and Turkey $400 million in aid. 6. Explain the policy President Truman suggested in this speech.
37 Cold War Map- Truman Doctrine Come up with a symbol, like a star, diamond, triangle, fist, etc... (your choice) and draw that symbol on Turkey and Greece on your map.In your map key (on the Left), indicate that countries with that symbol benefited from the Truman DoctrineAdd the Truman Doctrine to your Lecture Notes and underline it.
38 Politically Divided- Multinational Alliances Alliances were meant to intimidate other countries into holding an attack. Any country in the alliance could call on all the others for help, thus causing an instant world war and no one wanted that.NATO- Democratic, Capitalist Nations of the WestWarsaw Pact- Socialist, Communist Nations of the EastAssociation of Non Aligned Nations- a Group of Independent Nations from South Asia and Africa who refused to take sides
39 Document 5: This is an excerpt from the North Atlantic Treaty, which was signed by the United States, Canada, and ten nations of Western Europe in 1948.The parties agree than an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or in North America shall be considered as an attack against them all. They agree that if such an armed attack occurs, each of them will assist the party or parties so attacked. Each will immediately take whatever action it considers necessary to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area. It will, if necessary, use armed force. 7. What is the purpose of NATO?

42 How did the Cold War divide Europe The Cold War divided Europe ____________ with the _____________. This divided Europe because_____________
43 Document 7: Excerpt from a speech by Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev in 1956 in which he explains his point of view on U.S. actions.The inspirers of the “cold war” began to establish military alliances like the North Atlantic bloc (NATO)…[They claim] they have united for defense against the “communist threat.” But this is sheer hypocrisy! …The leaders want a “position of strength” policy. Furthermore, they assert that it makes another way impossible because it ensures a “balance of power” in the world. Western leaders offer the arms race as their main recipe for the preservation of peace! It is perfectly obvious that when nations compete to increase their military might, the danger of war becomes greater, not lesser. Capitalism will find its grave in another world war. 9. What is Khrushchev’s view of U.S. actions? According to Khrushchev what will happen?

45 BrinkmanshipThe Policy of threatening to go to war as a response to enemy aggression.Put this definition on the back of your map.You want a piece of This?!?
46 Examples of Brinkmanship and the Cold War Both the USA and the USSR wanted to avoid an all out Nuclear War. Instead of fighting directly, they paid others to fight for them, and then continued a kind of global game of “Chicken”. The following events are examples of when the two sides almost committed to total war, but then pulled back at the last minute and instead did something clever to stay in the game without losing face.The Korean WarThe Cuban Missile Crisis
47 Berlin Blockade & Airlift 1948-49 Russians try to claim West Berlin once and for all by starving them out. Water, power are cut. Ground transport is closed.Americans fly supplies to the people of West Berlin for almost a year.Eventually Russia gives up and opens roads and utility lines again….until next time….See video: Days that shook the word: Berlin Airlift on United Streaming
