Reason us policymakers viewed USSR a threat?

At the end of World War II, American leaders saw the power and ambitions of the Soviet Union as a threat to our national security. The Cold War was a war of words and ideologies rather than a shooting war, although at times the Cold War turned “hot” as in Korea and Vietnam. Basically, the Cold War was a rivalry between the United States as leader of the western democracies, and the Soviet Union and the nations that were controlled by the communists. Some causes of the Cold War included: Attempts by the Soviets and Chinese Communists to influence and take over areas in Asia and Europe. The division of Germany after the war---The Soviets blockaded West Berlin, which was deep within Communist East Germany. The Soviets thought the blockade would allow them to take over all of Berlin. The US replied with the Berlin Airlift, to supply West Berlin. September, 1949, the Soviet Union tested its first Atomic Bomb.

How was the Truman Doctrine implemented in Berlin?

The Truman Doctrine was an American policy to halt Soviet expansion during the Cold War. President Harry Truman pledged to contain communism in Europe and elsewhere and impelled the US to support any nation with both military and economic aid if its stability was threatened by communism or the Soviet Union.With the Soviet Union suddenly imposing a rail, road, and canal blockade of Berlin in 1948, Truman responded with the Berlin Airlift. From 24 June 1948 - 12 May 1949, the United States organized a 24/7 re-supply mission to carry supplies to the people in West Berlin. The United States Air Force, Britain's Royal Air Force, the Royal Canadian Air Force, the Royal New Zealand Air Force, the Royal Australian Air Force, and the South African Air Force flew 200,000-plus flights, providing an average of 4,700 tons of necessities such as food, fuel, and medical supplies daily.
