History- Berlin Wall

I posted my assignment below, but I don't want you to write me my article. I have started already, but I need someone to answer my question so I can write the rest of my paper. Please, if you HAVE to include links, just don't put Wikipedia. But try not to include links as much as possible. Thank you! Here is my question, and below is my answer so far:

Write an article explaining how the United States’ containment policy affected one major aspect of the Cold War (Berlin Wall). The thesis statement of your article should state whether or not the events related to that aspect of the Cold War could be considered part of the United States’ policy of containment.

My Answer so far:

One major aspect of the Cold War was the Berlin Wall. It was built in August of 1961. The Berlin Wall was first constructed of barbed wire and later replaced with cement. The Berlin Wall did not have anything to do with the containment policy. The containment was a US policy to stop the spread of Soviet growth. East Germany built the Berlin Wall, with Soviet approval, in order to keep East Berliners from fleeing to the West. The containment policy did not affect this one major aspect of the Cold War- the Berlin Wall.

asked by Heather
  1. Since the U.S. containment policy did not affect the Berlin Wall, this would seem to be the end of your paper.

  2. But it has to be an essay (3-5 paragraphs), right? That's something I don't understand. Or can it just be what I wrote above?
