The berlin wall was a major thing that has happened in history after the second world war. Germany was split in half with four sectors controlled by the Soviet Union controlling the east and with France, United Kingdom, and United States controlling the west. Since Berlin was the capital of Germany before and it being in east Germany being controlled by the soviet It has separated in to the east and west between allied and soviet powers. Between 1949 and 1960 herds of people with more than two million fled from East Germany with most going to West Berlin to receive freedoms they did not have in East Berlin or East Germany . In response to this the Soviet Union had started to make a wall that was completed in 1961, which East Berlin saying it was a anti-fascist protection rampart or a prevention of fascism to rise again.
This was because they had quickly realized that the Soviets had separated themselves from them to spread communism. However, this all changed when both sides had to build a defense system around themselves by creating alliances. It was a way of proving that they were strong and if they were ever messed with they could easily destroy the other. On the United States side were Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, and the United Kingdom to form the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, also known as NATO. This treaty was created on April 4, 1949 and declared that if any of its members states were in danger, then all of the other member states must contribute to protecting that country.

This decision was essentially the beginning of the Cold War. When the Dwight D. Eisenhower administration came into power in 1952, the Cold War had been in existence for a few years (Brands, 2006). During this time, the Suez Crisis that took place in 1956 lead the administration to believing that the communist Soviet Union was trying to acquire influence within the Arab region by sending aid. The Eisenhower administration chose a policy of offering aid to countries to support them in resisting any influence from communist nations. Therefore, these major events led to the establishment of the Eisenhower doctrine as the de facto Cold War doctrine, although it was largely an expansion of the Truman Doctrine (Bostdorff,
Despite his popularity in the US as “The Man Who Beat Communism”, Reagan’s presidency during the 1980s was only a sidekick to Gorbachev in the efforts to end the Cold War. Reagan’s actions against the USSR did not scare the nation into reforms, but Gorbachev’s impact in the Cold War, reforming the Soviet Union and oversight of communism’s peaceful transition into democracy during the late 80s overshadows Reagan’s seemingly token actions, portraying clearly that the only man which can hold the title of the “Man Who Ended the Cold War” with any credibility is Mikhail Gorbachev. The claim that Reagan’s increasing actions against communism and the USSR directly led to the appointment of reformist Mikhail Gorbachev to the post of General Secretary in 1985 is a misleading

On the other side, UK, whose economy was heavily damaged during the war and which experienced a public debt without precedents. Finally, countries found an ensurement against
INTRODUCTION Since the end of the cold war in 1989, the United States of America has emerged to be the sole surviving superpower, introducing international politics to its current and prevailing state of unipolarity. But, what really is unipolarity? The years following the end of the Second World War after 1945, were a period of bipolarity that was met with the cold war: a struggle in both military and political efforts between the western bloc (the United States and its allies) and the eastern bloc (the Soviet Union and its allies in the Warsaw pact). The cold war came to an end as the soviet bloc collapsed leaving Russia to stand on its own and with less power, thus giving the United States of America its supremacy as the only superpower
China has been a “communist” state since 1949, but the system itself has changed immensely with gradual reforms of Deng Xiaoping after Mao Zedong’s death in 1976. Mao Zedong started the soviet model in 1949, that consisted of three stages. Stage one began on October 1 of 1949 and was called “Lean to One Side.” The main goal was to get rid of opium, prostitution, redistribution of land, get rights for women, and nationalize industry. Mao used the Soviet Union to help form a communist country. Apart of Mao’s communist vision was focusing on heavy industry to build up China and improve the military.
A specific example of this such state is the Iran. Relations between the two states began in the late nineteen century as a response to the British and Russian colonial interests hence the Us was a reliable superpower. During the World War I, the state was invaded by the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union hence the close alliance during the period. That was followed by a period of close alliance between the Us government and the Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi’s regime. However,
