Not in the physical sence. Diplomatic relations might have been described as 'Frosty' between the Soviets & the rest of Europe and the US. Quite why this came about is difficult to understand. The Russian behaviour at the cessation of European hostilities in 1945 is, to me, incomprehensible. Their treatment of their so called Allies, principally the US & Britain, was unfriendly, and that puts it mildly in the extreme. Is anyone out there going to justify Soviet post war diplomatic policy ?
It was attritional or a 'War of Attrition' .
Since the cold war wasn't actually a war (it was a TERM), nothing was destroyed.
No bombs were actually used during the Cold War. That was why it was not a hot war.
no one was actually involved in a direct military confrontation.
Contradiction in terms; cold war means no war. The cold war would have terminated the split second war erupted.
It's actually in Vietnam war not cold war. :O
no the fall of the soviet union was actually the cause of the end so it is not actually considered to have occurred during the cold war
the cold war actually necer really had a certain place that it was taken at but it did have to do with the U.S and Russia after world war II
The cold war wasn't an actually war- it was a sentiment of distrust that began right after WWII, so 1945.
It actually started in the Soviet Union
Most experts would say that the Cold War ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall, or shortly thereafter.
The meaning of Cold in Cold War is simply that they call it the cold war because there was no fighting between the U.S's military and the Soviet millitary. Sometimes people will ask, "what if the cold war had turned hot?" that simply means "What would have happend if the U.S. and the U.S.S.R had actually fought each other?'
A Cold War is when there is actually not any fighting, just arguing and distrust. A "Hot War" is when there is lots of fighting and it is "hotting up" between the enemies.
Vietnam gave the "cold war" leaders the opportunity to perfect their "cold war" weapons...by actually using them in combat; e.g. the B52 & the MiG21 for example. SAMs and their accompanying radars as another example.
A "hot war" is actually engaged in combat. A "cold war" is not engaged in combat.
MIA is actually a hot war term meaning missing in action.
No actual war; no shooting; no killing; NOT A WAR. The term cold war was a simple and easy term to use. The cold war was actually "the years of stalemate" between the communist world and the free world...but as you can see it doesn't have a "ring" to it...Cold War is easier to say, easier to remember, and sounds alot better.
The cold war was between the communist world and the free world. But cold war means no war, no shooting, no death...just staring at each other. Korea and Vietnam was the only place were the two cold war adversaries could actually kill each other! And they did.
Because people actually started to physically fight. In the Cold War, no fighting actually broke out. A hotspot has intense fighting; thus the Korean War.
The cold war was simply a term used. There was no war. The cold war was actually a "Stalemate between two sets of nuclear armed nations" that were waiting for an excuse to press the buttons on each other (buttons which fired nuclear missiles).
Like the term "war on drugs" or "war on crime", or even the "war against poverty", etc. The "cold war" was actually an "arms race" (one upmanship on the each other)...but like the "war on crime or drugs" it was a CATCHY phrase and EASY to say (pronounce).
The main opponents of the Cold War were the United States and the Soviet Union. These countries never actually fought in the battle sense, so the war did not become "hot" between them.
They call the cold war the cold because it was a war that wasn't violent but it was a war of war
