    You see, Santa Claus being of Russian descent, made the USSR come into conflict with the US when he ran off to work for Coca Cola. the conference of 1945 dealt breifly with this issue, but at this stage the damage was done and so tensions grew……

    A paragraph isn’t enough to explain a very complicated situation. Russia seems to be very attractive to invaders. After two German invasions in the 20th century were repelled at great cost to Russia and the Russian people, the Soviet government thought to surround itself with buffer states that would bear the brunt of any future invasion. Some acceptance of this idea came out of the Yalta Conference. As it developed, the Western governments considered that the Soviets’ taking over eastern European countries was a prelude to its further expansion into western Europe. The US was the only country with an atom bomb and, since the Soviets didn’t want to be on the losing end of a very short nuclear war, decided logically to even the odds by figuring out how to make their own bomb. This involved spies. The Soviet Union imposed its communist form of government on the “satellite” states and violently suppressed all “reactionary” forces, including the churches. Spying, Communism and killing clergymen were more proof to the west that the Soviets were an evil empire that had to be resisted at all costs. To fight back, the US passed a law adding one nation “under God” to the Pledge of Allegiance. There’s more but the paragraph is up.
