Cold War never happened, it was a front for the USSR and USA to improve their armies to combat the incoming alien invasion.

the cold war was a war of intel between the US and the USSR from 45 to 90ish. A hot war would be something like WWII shooting actually happend there is a decleration of war in a hot war

To be fair though, you did steal a large amount from Germans.

What was the USSR'S best fighter plane?

Btw, If Russia was to return to communism (bear with me here), do you think another cold war would start if it resumed the Dominoes Affect theory, possibly in the middle east?

I think with the current situation it would be very easy to return to another cold war. But with china in the picture I dunno. If they sided with one side the war would become a real war quickly or fizzle our quickly (due to the need of oil by both sides, thus fighting in the middle east). But that said I think there could be a cold war without communism necisarily, look at the current missile shield thing.

Cold wars have been going on since man began recording history. England vs France. 400 years worth of rivalry the erupted on occasion. Greece, Rome, Egypt, Persia all have had rivals on the international stage for centuries. Uneasy co-existence is always better than war. Our new cold war appears to be heading towards Islamo-fascism vs Christo-democracy.
The biggest difference with rivalries prior to the 1950s is we now have the ability to provide our solar system with a second star.

You Brits did as well as Germans, Danes, French, Italians, Greeks, Norwegians, Belgians, Luxembourgers, Turks, Greeks, Dutch, Australians, New Zealanders, Japanese, S. Koreans and a host of other countries that helped us spend the USSR into oblivion.

There's only one thing that stopped the cold war from ever happening: Nukes.

Both sides had em, no one was ever going to take the chance of making the 1st move incase the other side retaliated with nukes.

So instead they dragged other countries like vietnam into their petty squabble. And who lost out most there? I'll give you a hint, it wasn't the Soviets or the Americans

The Greeks didn't need a second mention.


Btw did anyone read recently in the daily mail, that article about a Russian bloke who was watching for missile activity and the computer started to flash saying they detected a nuclear missile launch. He didn't send any missiles back, but waited and it turnt out to be a computer error? Pretty interesting read, I thought.

I like Greeks.

No I didn't see that article but I did see a documentary in the mid '90s that interviewed the heads of the US and USSR missile forces during a meeting they had with each other.
Both were amazed at the number of times each side thought they were being attacked.
Amazing we are still here to talk about it.

Any chance of a linkage?

Speaking of teh Greeks, how much on a scale of 1-10 do you think they were helped against going communist by Marshall aid, as I haz been reading and it seems most of that fund went to Britain, France and West Germany.

I believe it was a PBS documentary. May have been National Geographic. Try Google.
Greece was a participant in the Marshall plan. They did not recieve as much as Western Europe since their cities were spared a lot of the destruction Germany, France and England suffered.

Edit. Btw the Greek people suffered through almost 3 decades of civil strife and violence swinging between capitolism and communism. The thing that really helped prevent them from becoming a communist nation was Turkey.

A conventional war. Nato. Most of the Warsaw Pact members would of used an invasion of Western Europe by the Soviet Union as an opportunity to turn and bite the hand at the end of their leash. However the odds of it remaining a conventional war for more than a day or two were slim to none.
