The Cold War didn't really begin after WW2, it had been in the works for years. There was a distrust between the US and the Soviets since day #1. The problem was that WW2 put all of Eastern Europe (East Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Hungary, and the Baltic states) under Soviet control. It put the USA on edge, and led to a weapons buildup, plus a greater push for science in US schools. Since non-communist Europe (France, West Germany, Italy, Spain) were a mess, the USA had to pay for a lot of their defense. US bases had to be put in Europe. The US military was the biggest customer when it came to US industry. The defense industry was huge.
