Questions About Cold War Like What Did The Soviet Union And U.s Do

United states and soviet union question.?

Actually, I would chalk it up to a lack of events. Events such as the Berlin crisis and Cuban Missile crisis only escalated the fear and mistrust. However years went by after that without any major incidents and gave them the opportunity to settle down and try and deal with each other.

Soviet union questions around cold war era PLEASE help!!!?

1) Due to the fact that Poland until 1921 did not conclude a peace treaty with the Soviet Union, trade "Poland-USSR" had ceased. Nothing else I can not remember.
Sorry, read as "The First World War")
1*) As far as I know, the Soviet Union is completely rebuilt Eastern Europe's economy from the late feudal to an industrial. In general, you may be sufficient to look at Wikipedia.
2) The reasons for this, in my opinion: a) For the RF: dire financial situation after the collapse of the Soviet Union. b) For the USA: failure of the space sector without foreign assistance (mostly German, to a lesser extent the French). However, due to the resumption of the Cold War by the United States, this cooperation is being decreases (in the long term, will be completely phased out).

Do you feel like it was inconsistent for the U.S. to aid the soviet union despite their ideological difference?

One might say yes in that if we give the country aid, we are propping up their government.

However, if our long range goal was to act in a humanitarian fashion. then no, because we intended to help the population of the Soviet Union.

It's hard to hurt a government without hurting the citizens. it's also hard to help the citizens without benefiting the government.

This is true of any current nations whose policies we don't like, e.g. North Korea or Iran.

During the Cold War, when war with the Soviet Union seemed inevitable, did any Americans regret defeating Nazi Germany?

I do not know about regret as to the Nazis but regret about helping the Soviets occupy Europe most definitely. Patton wanted to role on through as he saw the coming conflict as inevitable. Truman hated the Soviets, didn’t trust them, and chewed out foreign minister Molotov during his first visit. I think General Marshall never trusted the Soviets either. Also there was Joseph McCarthy and his sycophants who used the Red Terror to their advantage and likely had such opinions.

He would probably be mad at…the failure of the war in AfghanistanIncreasing democratic and capitalistic principles implanted by GorbachevArms Treaties limiting the number of nuclear weaponsThe failure of the Soviets to be the first on the moonthe Solidarity Movement in Poland and other movementsthe fact that Gorbachev was allowed to become Secretary GeneralHe would probably be happy about…The early successes of the space raceSupporting foreign communist movementsThe US failure in VietnamCuba (a nation right next to America) was communist

Question to Americans: What were you taught about the Soviet Union in school, what was your reaction and after-thoughts?

I grew up in the "Cold War" and we were taught that basically, anything in the world was better than being Russian.  Russians were forced to work and hand their children into government care to be raised with Communist ideals.  The Russian government wanted to take over the world and we needed to be wary, lest that happen.  The KGB was dangerous and sneaky.  Spies might be all around us and the bomb could drop at any second.  BUT, I always wanted to visit Russia and see who the people really were.  I learned to cook Russian food and even hosted a Russian foreign exchange student for the year before 9/11.  Most recently, I discovered that my mother's father's family immigrated from Russia to the US, back in the 1910s.  They were German Mennonites who lived along the Volga River for many years. German settlements in Russia began during the reign of Catherine The Great!  Lots more to the story. Huge contrast between what i was taught, versus what i know now! What an amazing world!
