This paper discusses the Marshall Plan of the United States of America and describes how it came into formation after World War II. The author first explains the implementation process and methods of the Marshall Plan in its early years and the goals that the United States had hoped to achieve. The paper then talks about how the Plan affected politics in countries such as France and Italy post WWII. Next, the author talks about the pros and cons of the Plan, focusing in particular how it and the capitalism that comes with it were not as desirable in some nations, especially the Middle Eastern ones. Blatant favoritism in aid arrangements to Israel, the author reasons, is one the many reasons why Muslim nations feel discriminated against by American policies and the result was rebellion in the form of terrorism.
