Who was on what side during the cold war?

The Cold War was the most important political and diplomatic issue of the early postwar period. The main Cold War enemies were the United States and the Soviet Union. The Cold war got its name because both sides were afraid of fighting each other directly. In such a "hot war," nuclear weapons might destroy everything. So, instead, they fought each other indirectly. They played havoc with conflicts in different parts of the world. They also used words as weapons. They threatened and denounced each other. Or they tried to make each other look foolish. The term "Cold War" was first used in 1947 by Bernard Baruch, senior advisor to Harry Truman, the 33rd president of the United States, in reference to the frequently occurring and exacerbating crises between the United States and the former Soviet Union, despite having fought side-by-side against Nazi Germany in the Second World War. I hope this helps you.


How did the cold war begin and what weapons were used in that war?

The Cold War began when the Iron Curtain came down in Eastern Europe, as the Soviet Union made so many countries "Soviet satellites". The United States wanted all European countries to have the freedom to choose their own governments. Then the Soviet Union successfully developed their own atom bomb. The war of words between the two nations escalated. The words were the "weapons". No shooting. A "cold" war, not a "hot" (active, shooting) war.


What was MAD in the Cold War?

MAD stood for Mutual (or Mutually) Assured Destruction. It refers to nuclear weapons and the basic principle that if, (for example), the United States were to attack the Soviet Union using nuclear weapons then the Soviet Union would respond in the same way. In other words, in trying to destroy the opponent, the aggressor would have guarenteed their own destruction also.

1. Theoretical; meaning hypothetical, speculative? 2. Nature; meaning what? Why are they fought, how are they fought, where are they fought, who fights them, when are they fought? Otherwise: Wars are fought when diplomacy fails. Another words, if a potential combatant says he wants something or something done, and it gets done...then there's usually no war. If not...then it's war.
