San Diego State University The Rise and Fall of The Soviet Union Discussion

Question Description

I need an explanation for this Political Science question to help me study.

2) The Soviet Union was allied with the United States and Great Britain during World War II, but tensions soon emerged at the war’s end, leading to the long Cold War period. Do you believe this conflict was inevitable, or could the cooperation during the war have been continued if one or both sides had behaved differently? Was this primarily the fault of Stalin, or did the West play a part as well? Are there lessons from the emergence of this conflict that you see as relevant to this day?
