About the cold war...do you agree?
Please read. im not native in english: All in all, the effects of the Cold War have no doubt shaped international relations in so many ways. In my opinion, the Cold War involved the whole world more than just the two superpowers, the US and the Soviet Union and therefore it was not just a “cold” war taking into account the millions of lives taken during this 45 years. The term “cold” would probably just apply to both superpowers as they were using their involvement in other countries that struggled after WWII (such as Vietnam, Korea, and Afghanistan) to spread their own thinking and to attack their only rival, whilst blood shed in those nations. These differing ideologies between the East and the West also known as the “Iron Curtain” had once led to a possible Third World War in which never in history there was any confrontation between countries as closed to a Nuclear War as the United States and Soviet Union were in the Cuban Missile Crises (1962). Ultimately, having last for decades had finally came to an end under the Reagan and Gorbachev’s administration with a “New World Order” which includes the German reunification, the disarmament treaties and cooperation at the UN on conflicts. However, these raise the question: do the changes since the end of the Cold War really means a new world order or more an adjustment among existing powers? Has the Cold War really ended? I believe there are still degrees of mistrust which have never gone away. this is the conclusion for my essay. do u agree?is it clear enough?what points should had? what doesnt make sense?

Disagree, it was cold precisely because the Soviets and the US never engaged one another. Instead they did what is called a proxy war, where they aid and train another side in the fight to indirectly keep you occupied. Be sure to specify that the west was not the iron curtain, but the Soviet Union's satellite states... More

i lived through that era and there would not have been a cold war if it hadnt been for russia. the whole world wasnt involved. - -NATO was formed to stop russia so it was basically a stand off between russia and NATO
