Why was the cold war a world wide affair?
Because the US and the USSR were world powers. World powers are called world powers because they EFFECT the world.
The cold war was world wide; and commenced in 1945 and ended in 1990.
There was only one atomic age...which created the cold war; thus there was only one cold war; 1945-1990 & it was world wide.
The collapse of the Soviet Union and a softening of communist governments world-wide.
It was alled the cold war because it wasn't an actual war. Compared to a "hot" war (a standard war with actual conflict/battles) this "war" was "cold" because there wasn't any fighting. It was a world wide rivalry between the Soviet Union and the United States, but there wasn't any actual fighting
The most terrifying aspect of the Cold War for most people was that it might turn into a hot war involving wide use of atomic weapons, thus destroying human civilization, if not all life on the planet.
Nukes. The aggressive ideology of the Communists International (ComIntern) to achieve world wide communist hegemony by means of revolutionary struggle and wars of "liberation" was the fundamental cause of the Cold War.
The Petrov Affair was a Cold War spy drama in Australia in April 1954, involving the defection of Vladimir Petrov, third secretary in the Soviet embassy in Canberra.
The Petrov Affair was a scandal in Australia during the Cold War. A Soviet spy defected and sought asylum from Australia, eventually leading Australia to cease diplomatic ties with the USSR.
Yes, the Cold War was after World War 2
The cold war was NOT declared. The cold war was not a war. The cold war was simply a name given to "a non-shooting" military stand off between the communist world and the free world.
Cold war never broke out into an actual war.
World War Two was an origin of the Cold War.
World War I and World War II were fought with soldiers, but the Cold War wasn't.
World War 1 was not a cold war because of all the people that died the only time that there has been a cold war was after world war 2 and that was before the Korean war happened i hope this helps
No. The Cold War came after.
The Lebanese Civil War The Iran-Contra Affair The invasion of Grenada Cold War de-escalation
Do you mean, "Why was the era AFTER world war 2 called the cold war?" Because no one calls the era of WW2 the cold war.
The cold war was the state of political and military tension after World War II.
Cold War=No shooting WWII=Shooting
Korea and Vietnam were the only HOT Battles of the cold war; a war between the communist world and the free world.
The free world won the cold war.
The atom bomb caused the cold war.
No, not at all, because the XYZ affair was with the French, and the war of 1812 was with the British.
There wasn't any fighting in the cold war besides the Suez crisis in Egypt so the weapons had nothing to do with the cold war and also the cold war was after world WA 2
Contradiction in terms; cold war means no war. The cold war would have terminated the split second war erupted.
During the cold war (1945-1990) US tanks did not exceed 12 feet in width.
Yes. World War 2 ended in 1945, and the Cold War started in 1947-48.
First, there have only been two world wars. And no, the Cold War is the war against communist U.S.S.R.
Vietnam was a shooting war (a hot war). A cold war is a NON-shooting war; a cold war is a "stand-off" between two (or more) adversaries. Technically, Vietnam, being part of the cold war...communism verses the free world...the Vietnam War was a "Hot BATTLE" of the cold war.
They call the cold war the cold because it was a war that wasn't violent but it was a war of war
The xyz affair was a confrontation between the U.S. and France. This led to an undeclared war named the Quasi War.
World war II
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.
Post war is after World War II; 1945. Post cold war is after the cold war; 1990 (even though the papers were signed in 1991).
The Cold War did not result in a World War III because no country wanted to risk their own country with the threat of a nuclear war.
Atomic bombs created the cold war.
the cold war affected everyone greatly due to the large threat of nuclear warfare
The Cold War began after the Second World War ended in Germany and Japan's defeat.
The Cold War did not impact WW2 at all, because it happened later.
None, the cold war wasn't a war. However...Korea & Vietnam can be considered two "battles" of the cold war; since Korea/VN were "hot" (shooting & killing) wars during the cold war. The cold war was about communism vs free world. Korea/VN were both fought between communists and the free world.
Military spending was drastically cut as a side effect of the cold War. World affairs are still influenced today from the Cold War.
The Cold War was between the different ideologies of the United States and the USSR. The Cold War began after World War II and ended in 1989.
The cold war started in 1945 after the World War II. The cold war was between Russia and some of the western countries. The existence of the nuclear weapons is what led to the development of the Cold war.
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.
It was called The Cold War.
The cold war.
WWII (the atomic bomb) created the cold war. Vietnam was a hot battle of the cold war.
