Background: Although Soviet Premier Joseph Stalin did not mention the term “Cold War”, this speech addressed the impending global conflict just months after the close of World War 2. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s “Iron Curtain Speech” came less than 1 month later, and U.S. President Harry Truman’s speech outlining the “Truman Doctrine” came 1 year later.
