instead of conflict
- ideological divide the Soviet Union and the US were different economic/political

- allowed each other to misinterpret the actions of the other
- the more misinterpretation, more reluctant to work with each other

- both sides contributed greatly equally true, both sides are less innocent in
the conflict and both sides are not victims were willing participants

- East and West added huge deal to the conflict perception to each other that they
wanted to control the entire continent or at least their parts under military
