Was the Cold War avoidable?
Anything "can" be avoidable. Greed is man's nature; the cold war was about power, and power can be greed.
Avoidable Cost = These are those costs which can be avoidable by doing or not doing any particular activity For Example :Direct Costs Unavoidable Costs = These are those costs which are not avoidable whether do or donot initiate any activity For example: Fixed Cost But sometimes fixed costs are also avoidable or unavoidable by doing or not doing any activity in these cases fixed costs are also avoidable costs.
The cold war was NOT A SHOOTING WAR. Cold war means a stand-off. The Korean War was part of the cold war...a "Hot" battle of the cold war. "Hot" meaning a SHOOTING WAR. The cold war consisted of Communists verses NON-Communists. In the Korean War, the communists TRIED to take over a country by force (South Korea). The Free World (Non-Communists) stopped them.
