15 WHAT CAUSED THE COLD WAR? SOURCE S “The ruling gang of American imperialists has taken the path of open expansion, of enslaving weakened capitalist countries. It has hatched new war plans against the Soviet Union. Imitating Hitler, the new aggressors are using blackmail.” GM Malenkov, a Soviet politician, speaking in 1947 about the Marshall Plan. Andrei Zhdanov echoed this opinion Compare this to the idea of the “Liberation” of Eastern Europe, which is worse: “Liberation” or “Dollar Imperialism”

25 Artist: David Low ( ) Published: Evening StandardEvening Standard, 17 Jun Jun 1947 U.S. Secretary of State Marshall outlined a plan to aid Europe, including Britain, Russia, and "everything west of Asia". If European countries brought all their national plans together, America offered financial and material help to revive a working economy in the world. Moscow purported to see in this just a repetition of Truman's declaration of three months before concerning Greece, whereby the US offered aid to free peoples resisting totalitarian pressure. The whole idea was, to Moscow, an attempt to enslave Europe with dollars.

26

27 Artist: David Low ( ) Published: Evening StandardEvening Standard, 14 Mar Mar 1947 The Communists seemed to be winning the civil war in Greece when the Foreign Ministers' Conference at Moscow was shaken by the announcement by President Truman from Washington of a new policy: The US, as an "investment in world freedom", in the future would actively assist free peoples to resist attempts to impose totalitarian regimes upon them. As a start, the US would help the Greek government to defend itself in its war against the Communist aided revolutionaries.

29 Artist: David Low ( ) Published: Evening StandardEvening Standard, 06 Mar Mar 1947 News: Mar 12. US President Truman told Congress today that America must abandon her traditional policy of isolationism and intervene throughout the world to oppose Communism. "I would not recommend it except that the alternative is much more serious. The foreign policy and national security of this country are involved", he said in a speech calling for an immediate 400 million dollars in aid to the Greek and Turkish governments, who are opposed by Communist rebels.

33 Artist: David Low ( ) Published: Evening StandardEvening Standard, 15 Jul Jul 1947 News: July 15. After a meeting in Paris of only two days, foreign ministers of all European countries, with the exception of the Soviet block and Finland, agreed on a European recovery programme to be put to the United States. "It was the quickest conference I have ever have ever presided over," Ernest Bevin, British Foreign Secretary, said last night. The recovery programme, drawn up at the invitation of George C. Marshall, US Secretary of State, will be funded by the US. Last month, Marshall warned that Europe must have help or "face economic, social, and political deterioration of a very grave character."... [Chronicle of the 20th century] As a first step to the Marshall plan, the European statesmen met in Paris to draw up a balance sheet of needs and resources, to see how they could help one another and how much American aid was required to put Europe on its feet. Bidault, for France, said that the resources of Germany should be used for everybody, including the Germans, which was interpreted as meaning that the restriction of the Potsdam Agreement would not be regarded as inviolate.

35 Artist: Illingworth, Leslie Gilbert, Published: Daily MailDaily Mail, 15 July July 1947 News: July 13. Marshall aid plan splits Europeans. After a meeting in Paris of only two days, foreign ministers of all European countries, with the exception of the Soviet bloc (including Czechoslovakia and Poland) and Finland, agreed on a European recovery programme to be put to the United States.

37 Artist: David Low ( ) Published: Evening StandardEvening Standard, 19 Sep Sep 1947 As a change from the Soviet denunciations of the bolstering-up by Britain and America of the Greek Government, Marshall demanded that the UN should consider the great numbers of troops and quantity of material which the communists were sending to help the Greek guerrillas. The UN should discuss this and similar situations, said Marshall, if it wanted to keep healthy. Vishinsky, on the other hand thought the UN should try to lead a quiet life and, in this case, avoid excitement.
