Who Started The Cold War Drew Lovy The United States of America is responsible for starting the Cold War with the Russians The Cold War broke out shortly after the Allied powers defeated the Axis powers in World War II The Cold War was an arms race between the Russians and the Americans that lasted until the 1980s The United States and Russia two very different nations united to bring down a common enemy That enemy was Nazi Germany or the Axis powers However the US did not uphold their end of the agreement until D-Day in 1944 Up until D-Day there was only one offensive against the Germans and that was the Russian front To the Russians it seemed that the Americans were simply pushing the danger towards Russia Russia was left devastated after World War II because so much of it was fought there Russian resentment of US resulted from the lack of American support in World War II Furthermore in August of 1945 the US dropped not one but two atomic bombs on Japan which effectively ended World War II First of all Russia had never heard of a bomb with that type of payload and it would not create its own atomic bomb until September 1949 This alone was enough to cause a great scare in the Russians Next by dropping two atomic bombs it sent the message that America had more of them This showed that America was not afraid of using its atomic weapons which deeply scared the Russians Additionally it showed the Russians that America had more atomic weapons When the bomb was dropped the US and the Soviets were still allies Russia had no idea that America planed to drop an atomic bomb on Japan This led to the distrust between the nations By dropping two atomic bombs on Japan the US did more than stop World War II it caused distrust
