I am writing this to apologize for what I regard as impermissible rudeness, and totally bad manners. I am the one always to dislike those; but in old age and high b/pressure such things happen often. Every doctor can testify to that.

In the aftermath of World War II, the United States created a new weapon to assist in fighting the Cold War: the . In addition to gathering information on Soviet plans and maneuvers, the CIA also involved itself in covert operations designed to prevent communist dictators from rising to power.
Weapons from Turkey and an understanding that the U.S will never attack Cuba.
The Cold War remains one of the most remarkable chapters in the history of mankind and modern world for several reasons.
The Nuclear Arms Race
The deadly arms race and building up of armaments on a large scale, in both the warring nations made the Cold War perilous to the entire world.
The term containment describes the foreign policy strategy pursued by the United States after the Second World War. The term was introduced into the public debate by , a diplomat and U.S. State Department adviser on Soviet affairs. In his famous anonymous Kennan suggested a "long-term, patient but firm and vigilant containment of Russian expansive tendencies."
For Kennan containment was a political concept. As a strategy, containment sought to achieve three goals: the restoration of the balance of power in Europe, the curtailment of Soviet power projection, and the modification of the Soviet conception of international relations.
Kennan's concept of containment was based on his particularistic notion of U.S. foreign policy. Kennan's containment differed significantly from the containment U.S. foreign policy-makers would later practice.
The Cold War, although called a war, was not actually a war, but the name given to the conflict between the two powerful nations of the world, namely the United States of America (USA) and the Soviet Union (USSR).
However, one of the noteworthy aspects of the Cold War was that none of the sides was ready to face a direct conflict, and tried hard to avoid the nuclear war as much as possible.
This region came to be known as the East Germany.
➡ The Western region of Germany (known as the West Germany) was ruled by the Allies (US, UK, and France), and remained under the rule for nearly 40 years.
➡ The Government of East Germany erected the 1 in 1961 to prevent the flow of East Germans to West Germany.
➡ In 1949, West Germany became the Federal Republic of Germany, and Communist East Germany became the German Democratic Republic.
➡ Berlin, specifically the Berlin Wall, became a symbol of Cold War and division of Germany and Europe.
➡ The United States adopted the policy of Containment to stop communism from spreading in other parts of the world.
The war between the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea) and Republic of Korea (South Korea) in 1950 was more of an indirect conflict between the Soviet Union and the U.S.
➡ Similarly, the Vietnam War (1955-1975) was a military conflict, and was a part of the Cold War.
As the British and French Empires slowly yielded to independence movements, a new Third World emerged. This became the major battleground of the Cold War as the United States and the Soviet Union struggled to bring new nations into their respective orbits. Across the Third World, the two superpowers squared off through proxy armies.
Although negotiations lead to a favorable agreement; this was the time when the two nations came closest to having an actual war!
➡ Believed to be the effect of Cold War, the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) was opened for signature in 1968.
