Essential Question: What agreement did the Soviets & the US have concerning Iran at the end of WW II, and did their involvement in this country begin to cause friction between the two superpowers?


-The "Iron Curtain" is a boundary which divided Europe into two separate zones, symbolically, politically and physically. This began at the end of World War II and continued until the end of the Cold War, i.e. from about 1945 to 1990. With the Iron Curtain in place, some of the Eastern and Central European countries were under the political influence of the Soviet Union. Exceptions were West Germany, Liechtenstein, Switzerland and Austria
-The Soviet’s had suffered heavy devastation on its own soil. Their deaths from the war have been estimated at 20 million, half of the 20 million were civilians. It was because of this that the Soviet Union felt justified in their claim to Eastern Europe, they felt that because they dominated this region they could stop any future invasions from the west.
-Mission Agreement, signed on January 24, 1942, acknowledged the presence of foreign troops, but declared people who signed the document would respect the territory, sovereignty, and political independence of Iran. It also assured that Allied forces would withdraw from Iranian territory not later than six months after peace. At the same time, the close relationship with Iran allowed the US to expand its interest in the country’s oil. Things weren’t necessarily always fine and dandy though.
-After the passing of the peace agreement, Iranian citizens were very skeptical to believe that the US would keep all of the promises and honor the guarantees the treaty entitled.
-In 1946, Winston Churchill came to the United States to warn them about the Soviets and their aggression.
"From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic an iron curtain has descended across [Europe]." stated the former British prime minister. Churchill explained/ warned that the Soviets were getting closer to war, he also claimed the Russians wanted to expand their power around the world. President Truman believed in Churchill, but he didn't know how the United States should respond. Truman decided on a policy that said the United States could block Soviet expansion with a "policy of firm containment." This policy was first brought into view by George Kennan, he believe if the United States was to do this and was successful, the Soviet system would mellow and the Soviet Union would become less dangerous.
