Hey! The source question was about the berlin wall/crisis.
The 20 marker was about the grand alliance tensions causing conflicting ideologies
And then the other 20 marker was about failed US Containment in Asia.

Well, I did the first one on the Grand alliance.
Overall i disagreed with the question and said that grand alliance tensions werent to blame for the conflicting ideologies. I talked about how it was a pragmatic alliance and was never meant to last in the first place due to conflicting ideologies already existing. Mention iron curtain speech, Kennan Long telegram. And then i also mentioned how the grand alliance seemed to be improving relations rather than causing conflict. ( the ussr recieving reparations, signing declaration of liberated europe ect.)

And then for my counter paragraph I talked about it could be argued that tensions within the grand alliance did cause conflicting ideologies. For example, secrecy between truman and hiding thr atomic bomb from Stalin. And then i also mentioned a change in leaders causing tension.
Did you get something similar? @Metalfros

At least I understood the question a bit differently; don't know who is wrong. Anyway, I thought the question was about the tensions within the Grand Alliance. I agreed with the reason they gave and used all the evidence you used + some more and explained how everything linked back to conflicting ideologies e.g. Soviet expansion due to Stalin's fear for Capitalist Imperialism
