One effect of the Marshall Plan was that Western Europe became more closely aligned with the United States of America. However, one could also argue that it started antagonization of the United States by the Soviet Union, and contributed to the Cold War. The Soviet Union pretty much blocked all of its satellite countries from partaking in the Marshall Plan, saying that it was a trap to convince the leaders of the countries involved in receiving aid that the United States had the only right way - when “in reality” it was communism.

The countries that did take aid from the Marshall Plan were mainly in the western part of Europe; Great Britain, France, and West Germany, for example, all received help from the Marshall Plan.
