Another possible answer is that it hardened the USA people's opinion on USSR 's behavior of expansionist. A supporting evidence is that opinion polled showed that 35% people trusted USSR in 1946. This is to be compared 55% in 1945. Thus this further influenced the containment policy by Harry Truman
- Another notes - the phrase "iron curtain" is immature during 1946. Stalin was still pursuing a differentiated policy in Eastern Europe.
