Tensions between America and Russia are starting to rise up again after a few years of peace compared to the past. Recent events have caused the tensions between the world powers to skyrocket. While relations have been strained for a while when President Trump ordered missile strikes on Syria this past April, in response to Syria using chemical weapons on their own people, relations became even more tense. Vladimir Putin and Russia are aiding the current leader in Syria. Once we hit syria with missiles Vladimir Putin 's office said that it was significant blow to their relationship with the United States while the Prime Minister of Russia said that this missile strike destroyed any relationships between the two countries (Baker).

They used nuclear weapons to fight with in the Cold War such as the AN-22 gravity bomb and ASMP attack missile. At the end of the war both of the counties lost the United States and the Soviet Union. One reason the Cold War started was because the United States policy threatened the Soviet Union. After WWII, Both countries the United States and the Soviet Union were known as superpowers which means both superpowers never declare war on each other.

As apparent in Document C, in which the quintessential “nuclear family” sits in a bunker, concerns about nuclear war stood at the front of the American ethos. This fear of nuclear war was also reflected in Document E, in which the question is posed of whether or not the “U.S. [should] take the first blow?” This question of “whether a policy of accepting the first blow may be the best one” became intertwined within the minds of the America people, heightening American fears. President Eisenhower, while addressing the issue of the Soviet Union and its subsequent tensions through nearly doubling “defense spending…of government spending” (Document H). However, the Eisenhower administration failed to successfully mollify these fears, apparent in the inauguration of President John F. Kennedy, who pledged not to “dare to tempt [challenging nations] with weakness” (Document I).
After endings the World War II, the Soviet Union and the US both were clearly going to be the two powerful countries for some time to come. The Cold War was a long duration of frustration between the democracies of the Western World and the communist countries of Eastern Europe. Although the two powerful countries never officially declared war on each other, they fought discursively in proxy wars, the arms race, and the space race. Historians are not confident about the date but they assume it was very near of 1947–1991.
Strangelove is a satirical comedy representing the fears people had during the Cold War. People assumed that with all the nuclear weapons at the time, the world would come to an end. It satirized peoples fear of what could happen. Although, only the president is able to issue orders to start a war, it shows the peoples fear that what if any other officer in the army was able to make an order such as this. All it would take was one person whose mind wasn’t perfect; all it would take was on mentally ill person for the world to come to a possible end.
The defeat of the Germans by the Soviet forces was a major turning point in World War Two. Launching Operation Barbarossa is believed to be Hitler’s biggest mistake, since it placed Germany in a position where they would have to fight a two front war. Hitler had invested tremendous amounts of energy into a battle that could not be fought. He had failed to account for the conditions of the Russian winter that his troops would have to fight in, and the difficulties this would place for his operation. Hitler had many successes in acquiring land prior to this military operation against the Soviets, and upon losing this battle it resulted in a downward spiral of losses for the Germans.
New terrorist organizations such as ISIS have raised from past conflicts that involved United States intervention in many of the Middle Eastern countries. Form the United States Kenyan Embassy bombing to 9/11 to the present day, the "war on terror" initiated by George W.

However, United Sates invasion in the middle east only brought more instability and more "negative" (Driscoll) options that the United States is the enemy. Dealing this rampant terrorism has been a controversial topic ever since the invasion of Afghanistan.

History is all about inspiring speeches, gruesome wars, and unexpected events that decide the course of the future. The Cold War is not an example of a war, but a highly important event, considering there was no actual fighting. The Cold War started because the Soviet 's wanted to spread communism, but America was getting in their way to stop it. Three major factors also contributed to the conflict of war, the most obvious one being the U.S. wanted to stop communism, another being both the Soviet Union and the United States were afraid of each other, and finally competition, because everyone needs some good competition. These factors are both reasons why the war started, and "weapons" that were used.
The Cold War was caused by political and military tension between the west and east and/or between the United States and the Soviet Union. This rivalry lasted most of the last half of the twentieth century, after World War II and the feud the two nations had. The growth in weapons of mass destruction was one of the biggest issues during this time because the damage that the weapons could do was at the time unthinkable, and a huge worrying issue. The making of nuclear weapons occurred during this time and was a magnificent scare to many people because of the destruction nuclear weapons can cause. After the Cold War the US became the sole world superpower.The Russian economy suffered after the end of the Cold War.
