The Cold War was the period of conflict, tension and competition between the [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] and the [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] and their allies from the mid-[Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] until the early [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]. Throughout the period, the rivalry between the two [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] was played out in multiple arenas: military coalitions; [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link], psychology, and [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]; military, industrial, and technological developments, including the [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]; costly defense spending; a massive conventional and [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]; and many [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link].
The term "Cold War" was introduced in 1947 by Americans [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] and [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] to describe emerging tensions between the two former [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link].[Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]
There never was a direct military engagement between the U.S. and the
Soviet Union, but there was a half-century of military buildup, and
political battles for support around the world, including significant
involvement of allied and [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] nations.
Although the U.S. and the Soviet Union had been allied against [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link],
the two sides differed on how to reconstruct the postwar world even
before the end of the Second World War. Over the following decades, the
Cold War spread outside Europe to every region of the world, as the
U.S. sought the "[Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]" of [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] and forged numerous alliances to this end, particularly in Western Europe, the [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link], and [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link].
There were repeated crises that threatened to escalate into [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] but never did, notably the [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] ([Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]-[Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]), the [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] ([Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]), and the [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] ([Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]-[Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]). There were also periods when tension was reduced as both sides sought [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link].

The Cold War drew to a close in the late [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] following the launching of Soviet leader [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]'s reform programs, [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] and [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link]. The Soviet Union consequently ceded power over Eastern Europe and was [Trebuie sa fiti inscris si conectat pentru a vedea acest link] in 1991.

Gorbachev ended the cold war and set the first steps for the new democracies in Eastern Europe. Although many ex-soviets blame him for ending the USSR empire, it's interesting he still has a political career in Russia...One funny question: what would happen if Gorbachev came to power in Russia?!

The problem with Garbachev is that he did not want USSR to colapse and to let the ex-soviet republic to leave Mother Russia, he wanted to try to make some reforms, but I guess the comunism can't be reformed.

That why many russians are blaming him and that's why he left Russia and went in USA

Unfortunately (or not), the chinese are the best example that communism can be reformed. It might very well be that their system could spread all over the world, especially after this crisys. Let's not forget they are not hit so hard, just yet. Anyway, I think their idea of society could be a step forward: a hard nucleus represented by communism, surrounded by many layers of capitalism.
They let the economy grow on capitalist principles, but they have the good old communist principles at heart. Maybe the chinese have really found the secret of a just society, after all. I saw once a documentary on Discovery about China and the moderator ended by saying that this a true irony of history, namely that the biggest communist state (the greatest was USSR Smile ) should become the greatest capitalist power.
Anyway, it's a wonder the soviets didn't find first the chinese solution.
Why did they let themselves fall so bad at the end of the Cold War?
I believe the answer lies with Gorbachev, again.
His mistake (our fortune?) was that he gave hope and freedom instead of bread and bullets like the chinese (remember Tienanmen Square?)
This lead to the dissolution of not only the eastern bloc, but to the USSR itself. He was a man of the Providence, like few in history: hitler and stalin being the most recent examples.

What might the world look like if it hand't been for Hitler?

We can safely assume Greater Romania still existed, hard to believe the USSR would have moved alone against the western powers and their allies (Ro included, let's remember the USSR didn't dare show us the ultimatum until France capitulated).

What might the world look like if it hadn't been for Stalin ? Well, the soviets could very well lose the war (like the french did and remember the brits had Churchill) and that alone might have had consequences impossible to evaluate now. It was then one crazy man against the other and one crazy system against the other. We should be gratefull that the lesser crazy won, maybe there is a God after all.Smile

What might the world look like if it hadn't been for Gorbachev ?
We on Prut's right bank might praise Ceauchesku right now (or his memory), and the world would certainly look very different....Gorbachev should have a statue in any capital of Eastern Europe ... at least...
